Do any of you use HRM Pro for power measurement? I can’t get the power to show on training screen that is pulled from trainingpeaks and 80/20 run screen. If I just use garmin power screen, then it is there. It is a hassle to constantly switch between screens and I can’t see my target watts.
Can’t figure out what could be the problem.October 25, 2021 at 3:56 am #14910
I have the same issue. I asked David about it and was given the following response:
This issue is addressed in our document Understanding Your TrainingPeaks Structured Workout Plan but I’ve included the relevant section below for your convenience:
Q: When using Power for my running structured workout on a Garmin, I can’t see real-time power or target power on the same data screen or I just see a symbol.
A: This is a known issue, as Garmin and Stryd have not yet worked out a complete solution for structured workouts and power.
For athletes using a Stryd plus a Garmin device, the best solution is the Stryd Workout App for your Garmin watch. This will allow for all relevant data to be displayed with the same workout screen. A video tutorial can be found here.
For athletes using a Garmin Power device, or Stryd users on older Garmin devices that do not support the Stryd app, there are a few other workarounds for this:
Turn on auto-scroll so the device rotates between the structured workouts screen and your real-time power screen.
Change the workout type for the run workout(s) in TrainingPeaks from Run to Bike. This will force the Garmin device to accept the Stryd feed as a cycling power meter, and the structured workout will display real-time power in the same structured workout screen. When the workout is complete, change the completed workouts type back to Run in TrainingPeaks.
Use an Apple Watch. The Stryd app with an Apple Watch allows you to see real-time power and a prompt telling you if you are in the correct zone.
Consider the 80/20 Zones Garmin app, which will not completely resolve the issue, but it does display real-time run power and current 80/20 zone on the same screen.October 25, 2021 at 4:12 am #14911
OK. Thanks, I will try changing from run to cycling. 80/20 zones app is not showing power for me as well. So the only way i can see power is only from garmin app at the moment. I will try the workaround with switching the workouts, but is a headache. Then the workout will be uploaded to strava, garmin connect and TP as cycling and I have manually change everything back.October 25, 2021 at 4:43 am #14912
But changing a run to bike will mess up the watt targets. Run power and bike power are different in TP. So I would need to change TP setting every time and is not a solution.October 25, 2021 at 6:52 am #14930
You are finding the same issues I did. I’m learning the zones and using the Garmin Power widget to see it on my watch. It’s definitely not as convenient but I find it doable. I have also removed almost all non essential running screens to decrease the screens In scroll mode.October 25, 2021 at 8:28 am #14933
Understood. Then the question is, is it all worth the hassle? Is the benefit there vs running with pace and feel?October 25, 2021 at 9:33 am #14937
Honestly, I just switched myself and am working through that very question. For me, I think it can depend on your terrain and preferences. Power can be extreme useful I think in areas of hills and other terrain changes. I know I was able to use power for my long run a few weeks back and found I was comfortable in pushing the overall pace on that run without overtaxing myself. It can be a issue for sure, but I am still optimistic the hassle is worth the benefit.
