Sport modes

You can select a suitable sport mode from the predefined sport modes. Depending on the sport, different information is shown on the display during exercise. For example, the sport mode specifies whether FusedSpeedTM or plain GPS speed is used. (For more information, see FusedSpeed.) The selected sport mode also affects exercise settings, such as HR limits, autolap distance and recording rate.

In Movescount you can create more custom sport modes, edit the predefined sport modes and download them to your watch.


To quickly start a run with navigation, select the default sport mode Run a Route or Run a POI. This takes you immediately to a list of the routes/POIs in your watch which you can choose from for your run.
