Question about Garmin Forerunner 50

1 Answer

Heart rate zones

I have just purchased the forerunner 50 and cannot work out whether you can set numerous heart rate zones. For example can you set an aerobic zone (60-70% hr max) as well as an anaerobic zone (70-80%) and vo2 max (90 plus) or can you only set 1 zone and work below or above it?

Please help me

Heart rates are known by the garmin software as zones, numeroted 1 up to 9.
You can set on the software your heart rate, based on :
- HR max ;
- intermediate HR, linked to the zones.
Then, when you upload a session in the software, you will analyze the zones you ran in.

Another tip : to set on the Garmin itself, the Zones to ON,then Z0 to ON, and Z0 HRM to ON : here you can indicate your HRM low (ex : 165 for me) and the HRM High (185 for example). Then during your session, an up or down arrow will appear, indicate if you run below your HRM low (aerobic zone), your anaerobic zone (betwin HRM Low and High) or in VO2 max.

Hoping that's clear and that can help you.

Go into settings.

Press the center button on the right hand side of the watch 1 time you will see settings watch time & date appear in the display.

Press the bottom button on the right side of the watch1 time to get into the TRAINING SETTINGS FUNCTION.

When you see TRAINING SETTINGS in the display press the center button on the right side of the watch once.

You are in TRAINING SETTING mode.

Press the bottm button on the right hand side of the watch 3 times until you see
ZONE LIMITS displayed.

When you see ZONE LIMITS displayed press the center button on the right side of the watch 1 time to enter into the ZONE LIMITS FUNCTION.

Now, you should see the lower end heart rate limit number blinking.

To adjust this number use the top button on the right hand side of the watch to increase this limit or lower button on the right hand side to decrese it.

When you have it set where you want it press the center button 1 time to save that setting.

Now you should see the upper limit number blinking.

Follow the same steps to set the upper heart rate limit.

When you have pressed the ceter button to set the upper limit you have completed setting the heart rates limits and the display should read: LIMITS SET!

You may need completely reset your device, but as the very first step I'd advise to check compatibility with Windows Vista.

Garmin won't recognize footpod


As your Forerunner 50 first time was syncronized with your husbands footpod, now it is linked to him and that's why it can't find yours. You may even have to reinstall software, but I'm not sure. Try this link and you may find wht you are looking for:

I have the timex fitness trainer and it is calculating my calories for a man and I need it calculated for a woman. Help!


Simple! men and women burn calories at the same rate. And the more muscle you have the more calories you will burn to conduct an excersize. And the more fat you have, the more calories you will burn from fat.

Garmin Forerunner 50 Train Display Settings


I was having the same problem and came across your post - I figured out how to change the secondary display.  While in Train mode, with your foot pod activated, hold the View button.  The secondary display will change and say "CAD" or "PACE"...keep doing this until you get to the right display.  Hope this helps!

Can`t pair Garmin Forerunner 50 with footpod


Hi,

I've been having the same problem. I couldn't pair my footpod, but my heart rate monitor was working. I've only had the 50 for about eight weeks.

I reset the watch, holding view mode and Start/Stop at the same time.
This didn't do any good.

I swapped the battery in the HRM with that in the foot pod. The foot pod synched the HRM didn't.

Solution duff battery. I'd change yours it will probably do the trick.

Hope it helps
