Outdoor workout power targets on Garmin head units

When I do a TR workout outdoors, the garmin WO screen shows me the step average power instead of my 3S power. It does show current power to the right of that but it’s pretty small and often hidden by my radar UI. This isn’t how it behaves with workouts from TrainingPeaks

I don’t necessarily want to switch from the garmin workout screen to what TR suggests I build as a data screen, as I actually like the workout screen from Garmin.

Is there a reason this doesn’t work like TrainingPeaks workouts do?

Because that’s the way TrainerRoad sends workouts. TR could change it, I started a forum thread and requested that in 2020 or 2021.


It makes no sense to me why TR hasn’t incorporated the ability for the user to set the target power how they would like to see it (whether it’s instantaneous, 3s, 10s, 30s, lap avg …). So far their response seems to be that the majority of users wouldn’t know what to do with it, so instead they make the majority of users set up custom screens to get something that can be used. Feel free to poke the team and let them know what you’d like to see too.
