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

Can't pair garmin forerunner 50 with hrm and food pod


First you have to assume the battery that comes with your HRM would be new - keep in mind that it may be stored in the warehouse for many moons.
Given that, open and take out the battery - that should make a hard reset on the HRM itself. Restore the battery and try the manual pairing again.
The heart icon should pop up again.

Otherwise, you have to suspect the battery is low and need to be replaced.

Good luck

I bought a Forerunner 50 with HRM and Footpod. Initially the footpod wouldn't work, but HRM would. So changed the battery and footpod is fine. However, HRM now won't work. Just replaced the battery in that...


I had a similar problem. First my hrm worked and the footpod did not. Then I tried to pair manually (for the umpeenth time) when the hrm was too far away, and I lost that pairing, and it still didn't find my footpod. Then I wet the hrm sensors and tried pairing again and then it picked it up. Finally, I switched batteries in the hrm and footpod and then it picked up the footpod. Now I'm headed to the store to stock up on batteries. Kinda upsetting that I have to buy batteries when I just got the thing, but probably costs less than the postage for sending it back!

Heart rate zones


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.

Pairing Food Pod


I had the same issue, it turned out to be a weak battery. Also when you replace the battery make sure it is making proper contact with terminal in the foot pod.

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
