Getting Your VO2 Max. Estimate for Cycling

Before you can view your VO2 max. estimate, you must have a compatible heart rate monitor and a power meter. The power meter must be paired with your Forerunner® device (Pairing ANT‍+® Sensors). For the most accurate estimate, complete the user profile setup (Setting Up Your User Profile) and set your maximum heart rate (Setting Your Heart Rate Zones).

NOTE: The estimate may seem inaccurate at first. The device requires a few rides to learn about your cycling performance.
  1. Ride at a steady, high intensity for at least 20 minutes outdoors.
  2. After your ride, select Save.
  3. Select Menu > My Stats > VO2 Max. > Cycling.
