Your device creates a daily step goal automatically based on your previous activity levels. As you begin your walk or run, the device counts down the number of remaining steps in your daily goal. When you reach your step goal, the device displays GOAL!, and begins counting the number of steps taken that exceed your daily goal.
When you set up your device for the first time you must designate an activity level. This level determines your initial step goal.
If you choose not to use the auto goal feature, you can set a personalized step goal on your Garmin Connect™ account.
