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?
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.

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:
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.
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!
