    I successfully exported my power-based structured running workouts to my garmin fenix6 (i am currently training for a ½ IM). However, when i begin the workout my watch does not show what power range i should perform in for that “step” of the workout. I scroll through my screens, but none of them tell me (or display) what my target power range is for that part of the workout. Again, i can see my current power, HR, pace, etc… but NOTHING tells me my power target. Please help. Thank you!

    Hi PastorBill,

    I use power based on the Stryd footpod. With that in mind, I actually do every power-based run workout using the Stryd Garmin app and it has an amazing default screen showing current power and the defined power range of the current interval, the remaining time in the current interval and average power for the current interval – all of the workout data syncs smoothly from TrainingPeaks to the Stryd app. I was frustrated with my Garmin watch until Stryd released this new app a couple of years ago and I’ve never gone back. If you are not using Stryd, this may not work for you. But I hope this helps!

    Cheers,

    Ted

    Pastor Bill,

    Unfortunately, the running power doesn’t display correct on the Fenix 6. It is a real issue. There are some workarounds such as changing the workout type to a bike. You can get the range to appear on the workout screen as you scroll through but you basically have to learn the ranges for the most part in my experience.

    Thank you, Ted… I have heard a lot of good things about Stryd & you’ve definitely got my wheels turning!

    Thank you, Gerald!
    Yes, it has been frustrating… however, today I did EXACTLY what you said (memorizing the power target for each step). Perhaps, there will be a better way at some point in the future. Blessings, brother.

    Also consider the 80/20 Garmin App at https://www.8020endurance.com/80-20-garmin-apps/ I suspect the official Stryd app will meet your needs, but the 80/20 app may have some advantages to you over the Stryd app.
