‘Walker’, A Very Nifty, 9-Item, Data Field For ‘Garmin’ Watches, Which Works A Treat On My ‘Venu 2’.

by Anura Guruge

‘Walker’ 9-item data-field. I have it as my 3rd-screen on ‘Walk’.
But, it gives me everything I need.

My other 3 screens for ‘Walk’.
The first two has much of the same data as ‘Walker’ BUT split across 2-screens & I DO NOT get the TOTAL STEPS ALREADY walked — as I do with ‘Walker’. See above, 10,973 (total) vs 10, 260 (this walk) above as well as diagram below.

I check ‘Garmin Connect IQ’ at least once a week to see what new stuff they have for my new ‘Venu 2‘. I was intrigued when I saw this data field. Just what I was looking for.

As you can see from the top picture it is not unusual for me to have 700 steps in the bank (so to speak) before I start my morning walk. Given that I always have to balance my time vs steps I like to know where I stand with my step count FOR THE DAY — not just for a single walk. That way I can allocate my time.

I set this Data Field, by ‘wwarby’, as the 3rd screen — but it is the ONLY screen I now use when I am walking.

Try it out. I am sure you will like it.
