The Data You Get With A ‘Polar Vantage V’ On The Watch — Following An Activity.

I did my first activity, a run, with my new Polar Vantage V on Sunday morning — November 4, 2018.

It was one of my standard 3.5 mile runs, up a hill. I did take both my dogs with me which slows me down because they have to stop every few seconds! Honest.

At the end of the run all of these data screens were available by pushing the “OK” button and then scrolling through using the DOWN button. Pretty impressive. Overkill for I.

Just wanted to share them with you since this is still a new watch — that just became available last week.

GPS accuracy seems OK. The 3.5 miles was what I have got with my other watches. Heart rate also seems to be consistent with my expectations.

Garmin Support Confirms That “All Day Heart Rate” Menu Option Only Displayed in ‘Connect’ With Applicable Devices.

This had to do with ‘Garmin Connect’ not displaying the “All Day Heart Rate” Menu Option once I had removed my Garmin Vivoactive HR on October 9, 2017.

I kind of suspected that this omission had to do with the removal of the Vivoactive HR — since it would have been too much of a coincidence otherwise.

But, Garmin telephone support DISAGREED!

They said menu option should always be there even if there was no device that supported HR.

So, I thought I would check with e-mail support — since I could send them a screenshot.

So, this was the outcome.

Sharing in case YOU run into the same problem.

Garmin Connect (On Android 7) Stops Showing “All Day Heart Rate” Menu Option …

I noticed it yesterday, 7-8 hours after I had removed the Vivoactive HR from the account.

I am sure that this was NOT a coincidence.

I had originally thought I had LOST all my heart rate data from the 117 days that I did wear the Vivoactive 3 everyday — BUT luckily that is NOT the case. I can access the data from the main dashboard by clicking on ” TODAY — heart rate”. That is good.

Called up Garmin Support. No help. I am getting rather upset with them.

So this is but a heads up. OK?
