To download a map, select Add Map, select a map, press START, and select Download. NOTE: To prevent battery drain, the watch queues the map download for later, and the download starts when you connect the watch to an external power source. To remove a map, select a map, press START, and select Remove.
In reality, the accuracy of Garmin Race Predictor can vary quite a bit. For some people this is fairly close to the mark for others it is not. There are those who find the figures are very generous and that they are unable to finish a race that quickly.

NOTE: There are three different music playback options for your Forerunner® 955 watch. On a Forerunner 955 watch, you can download audio content to your watch from your computer or from a third-party provider, so you can listen when your phone is not nearby.
Elite male runners have shown VO2 maxes of up to 85 mL/kg/min, and elite female runners have scored up to 77 mL/kg/min. A good VO2 max for a 25-year-old male is 42.5-46.4 mL/kg/min, while a good value for a 25-year-old female is 33.0-36.9 mL/kg/min.
The Forerunner® device requires wrist-based heart rate or a compatible chest heart rate monitor to display your VO2 max. estimate. On the device, your VO2 max. estimate appears as a number, description, and position on the color gauge.
With Garmin Coach, you get to choose your expert running coach and your race goal, then receive guidance with a free training plan that includes dynamic workouts selected for you.
Beginning marathoners should aim to build their weekly mileage up to 50 miles over the four months leading up to race day. Three-to-five runs per week is sufficient. The vast majority of these runs should be done at a relaxed pace. You should run at an easy enough pace to be able to carry on a conversation.
Why is my VO2 max decreasing on Garmin? Your VO2 Max decreases on Garmin when your heart rate is higher relative to your pace. Average heart rate and VO2 Max are inversely related. This explains why my VO2 Max dropped the week I tested positive for COVID.
GPS location accuracy is around 3 meters (10 feet), 95% of the time on Garmin devices. This means, at any given time, your device will save your location within 3 meters of your actual location.
Training Status provides an overview on the device of your longer-term training habits to provide you with an insight into how your training is progressing. It can be used to help plan future training and continue improving your fitness level.
Garmin has long been recognized as the leading brand when it comes to running watches. Specializing in GPS technology, it creates high-quality products with a reputation for accuracy and is the number one choice for athletes who are serious about their performance.
What watch do marathon runners wear? Most marathon runners wear higher-end GPS running watches, such as the Garmin Forerunner 245 or above. The Garmin Fenix series watches are popular among runners, as well as the COROS Pace 2, Suunto watches or Polar running watches like the Polar Vantage V2.
Garmin watches will record the laps you setting and help remind switch your pace on and off. After sync the setting to watch, turn on “Run” mode and press on “Up” button for a while. You will find the training in “My workouts” of Training. With Garmin watches and Garmin Connect, let`s have the speed play!
You can create interval workouts based on distance or time. The device saves your custom interval workout until you create another interval workout. You can use open intervals for track workouts and when you are running a known distance.
Move allows your Garmin watch to automatically detects certain types of exercise such as biking, running, swimming, walking, or using an elliptical machine. Continuous movement of at least 10 minutes will tag an exercise as an event.
What is Mona Fartlek? The Mona Fartlek is a training session Australian long-distance runner Steve Monaghetti used throughout his career. It`s a session that involves some hard fartlek running – perfect if you are short on time but need a good workout. The whole session can be done in under 20-30 minutes.
Your Garmin watch automatically tracks those moderate and vigorous activity minutes throughout the week and presents them as intensity minutes2. Vigorous intensity minutes are counted twice (x2) to reflect the larger benefit they have on your body compared to moderate intensity.
The diameter of the watch is 46.5mm, which is a good balance between having a screen big enough to display your desired data and something you`d want to wear all day. Some of the other smartwatches out there, such as the Garmin Fenix 7X, are too large for my liking.
Both the Forerunner 945 and the Forerunner 955 are top-tier running watches, and all that tech comes at a price. As the Forerunner 945 is the older of the two watches, it`s likely to be discounted following the release of the Forerunner 955.
On a Forerunner® 245 Music device, you can download audio content to your device from your computer or from a third-party provider, so you can listen when your smartphone is not nearby. To listen to audio content stored on your device, you must connect headphones with Bluetooth® technology.
Does My Watch Need to be Connected to My Phone to Listen to Downloads? Your watch only needs to be connected to your phone to sync your downloaded content. Once your content is synced, you can enjoy music or podcasts offline without a requiring a Bluetooth connection to your phone.

My swimming pool. I have just had my fifth IC 40 Intellichlor chlorine generator installed in 4 years at a cost of over $900 today. Each one has worked for no more than 8 months. The first three were replaces under three year warranty, the fourth by a factory rep and I bought the fifth today. The first three all failed with Flow Chk PCB error message. The fourth just stopped working on Sunday, no power or lights. A local Pentair warranty person, whom I paid a Service Call, unplugged the unit, opened the small power center cover, showed me the green light indicating that there was power, plugged in a new IC 40 which worked immediately (as did the other four). I asked if I should replace the power center and he said that it’s basically just a transformer and is working fine. We do get occasional power blips that make the clocks on microwaves, etc blink, but I thought that the power center essentially isolates the cell from these. I do have a Florida Power and Light surge protector on the electrical box that brings power into the house. I have now talked to the pool builder, two Pentair warranty repairmen and one factory rep. I am at a loss. They all tell me they have no idea why these units fail after less than a year. This last IC 40 was installed 3/24/2010, version 2.0 and now failed in less than 5 months. Should I replace the power center that the IC 40 plugs into. Any other suggestions. I have been told that this is the best chlorinator. I don’t want to keep replacing units. By the way, each unit had been spotless inside. I keep the water chemicals and salt levels at ideal levels. The units have never worked long enough to get dirty inside. The power center is connected to an Intellitouch control system outside with an indoor control panel. Last time I called Pentair North Carolina and got some smart alec tech person that had no suggestions. Please Help if you can.
ANSWER : I’ve had the same experiance. On my fifth one as well. Fail every year. No idea why.

I have a multifunction sports watch that i bought from Big W, (no brand name)

By accident i set the watch to 24 hour time, originally it was set to 12 hour time, how do i set it back? ive tried every button combo including the button combo i used when i accidently set it on 24 hour time, the instructions only say how to set the time and date, it doesnt say how to toggle between 12 hour and 24 hour time, is there a generic way to toggle it on sparts watches? btw, holding the mode button in does nothing on my watch, no matter how long i hold it in for

ANSWER : Hi. How may buttons do you have, 3 or 4 buttons?if you have the 4 buttons, try this:You need to go through the time and date settings again. The 24 and 12hr format select is at the end of time/date adjustment.To set the time and date:-press the top-left button then right-top button to set the seconds, press bottom-left button to set hour then press top-right button to adjust hour, press bottom-left button to set the minute then press top-right button to adjust minute. To set date, press the bottom-left button then press top-right button to adjust month, press bottom-left button then top-right button to adjust day and finally press bottom-left button to set the time format then press top-right button to select 12hour format. Press top-left button when done.Since you have a generic sports watch, it is hard to write specific instructions to set the time format. If your watch has different ways of setting the time, just remember that the 12/24hour format is usually at the end of time and date adjustment.Let me know if you have questions. Good luck.

I have a Kohler Condidant 5 Generator that will run as long as you hold the start button in. It dies when you let off. I have a harness for the remote switch but no switch – It also will start the generator when you cross the red and black wire and run as long as you hold them together. There are 3 wires to the main switch and 5 to the remote switch. Does the starter stay engaged the whole time you hold the start switch or does the computer release the starter once it is running? The Generator is producing electricity because I tested it while holding the start button. Some where is a wire that shold tell it to keep running. I have read online many descriptions of the same problem, most are told the board is bad so they replace it and still have the problem. Have not found a solution. Talked to a marine machanic today and he said he fixed his friends generator doing the same thing by running a bypass wire but he couldnt remember exactly what he did it was a long time ago. Can anyone help me. Thank you
ANSWER : The problem is either the ballast resistor or the starter bypass relay. The bypass relay should be part of the starter solenoid. I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly where the ballast resistor is located. It should be a physically fairly large resistor made of ceramic. It should be retangular roughly 1.5″-3″ long and 3/8″-1/2″ accross with a wire on each end. It could also be a coil of wire mounted on a phenolic board.
If you need more help just add a comment and I’ll respond as soon as I get the message.

I have purchased three 750-watt power inverters in the last three weeks. They have all failed to work on the second or third use. The first two were the same brand. I replaced an old one that ran for several years. I am using it to run a 4.7 amp 120-volt vacuum cleaner motor that pumps up my air dock. I have it connected directly with marine cable to one of the boat batteries. The battery outputs about 12.8 volts DC. The fuses don?t blow, just No Output. I am using a three-wire 120-volt extension cord and am, wired neutral, hot and ground to the AC motor vial an on/off switch. The motor works fine when I run house power with an extension cord from the dock next to me. Could I be, just unlucky with new inverters and need to buy a forth one?
ANSWER : The problem may be that the inverter is undersized for the load. Is the 4.7 Amp rating the motor peak draw or the nominal one. What I mean is that it takes many times more power to start start the motor than when the motor is running. Typically it is 3 to 7 times more amps to start the motor than when it is running. It could be that starting the vacumm cleaner is stressing the inverter and it is causing it to fail prematurely. If you can find out the locked rotor current draw of the motor, the that would be the mininum size of the inverter.

Also, the type of inverter will make a difference on how the motor operates. A modified sine wave will make the motor run hotter than a pure sine wave inverter. Hope this helps.

Saltwater filter system on an INTEX swimming pool.
After putting fresh well water in pool, (5,060 gallons) I put in 120 lbs. of swimming pool salt. I ran the filter for 24 hours then fired up the saltwater chlorinator. After an hour the water went from totally clear to clear but now quite green. Now what? There is still about 1 hour to go on the recommended 5 hour cycle. It’s not clearing up.
Tony
ANSWER : Are the require hours properly set as required.In some cases it takes much time in clearing/cleaning the dirt from water.
Set the operating hours using the up arrow button to increase the hours of operation and the down arrow button to decrease the hours of operation. Hours of operation are determined by the amount of water in gallons for the pool size.Re-lock the keypad by pressing and holding the down arrow button for 2 seconds until a long beep is heard, then pressing and holding the up arrow button for another 2 seconds until a second long beep is heard. The green LED light will light up within minutes indicating the system is operating.
It is possible to run the system for a longer period of time than is necessary. However, because chlorine dissipates over time (which is why pool owners must constantly go to the store, constantly purchase, and continually add standard chlorine to their pools), if you happen to run your Saltwater Pool System too long, you can simply begin running it for a shorter period the next day, and your pool will be fine. The best way to determine the optimal length of time to operate your system is to experiment with different operating lengths of time, and to test the amount of chlorine in your pool using the chlorine test strips provided by Intex. See Owner’s Manual for operating time table list. If you have one available.
How long does it take for the Saltwater Pool System to clear the “green” water from my pool? The Intex Saltwater Pool Systems work very quickly, and will immediately begin eliminating bacteria and algae from pool water. However, the exact amount of time needed to transform dirty, dangerous pool water to safe, clean, clear, fresh pool water will depend on a number of factors including how dirty the pool water is to start with, the size of the pool, and the temperature of the outside air.
Will the Saltwater Pool System work even if I use well water? What if I have hard water? Yes, the Saltwater Pool System will work in all water conditions. However, you may find it desirable to treat your water (just as you would if it was being used in your house), if it is hard or has high levels of calcium, etc. Calcium can form white scale on the titanium plates in the electrolytic cell, thus requiring more frequent cleaning. Other than more frequent cleaning, it will not affect the ability of your Saltwater Pool System to perform its functions.
