A guy I was riding with today was surprised I have my current speed displayed on my head unit. After some thought I guess he was right, what do I care how fast I’m going?
Here’s what I have (right now). Wow looking at my setup… it makes ZERO sense! lol
Time of Day
Average Power 5s
Wahoo Map Screen
Distance Next Cue
Avg Power 3s
3s avg. power
lap avg. power
next interval target power
Group ride (my “kitchen sink” page)
time of day
I have the TR recommended screen set up for out doors work outs (or indoor on a virtual course), IIRC its
Segment Time to go;
Interval Average Power (+ Target Range);
% Max HR (I think TR say bpm but I prefer %max); and
For indoors workouts its mainly the TR screen but I run my Garmin parallel. It has:
Lap Power (although I often forget to press lap);
% Max HR; and
Ive never done a group work out but if I did I cant see it being any different from above.
Edit: for a leisure/group ride its:
Time of the Day
% Max HR
I’ll have a second data screen I’ll sometimes jump to (but not always) for other stats (Elevation, Temperature and battery life, etc)
For inside and outside workouts, majority of the time my screen shows this:
and one click up to quickly check HR:
looks like a warmup interval.
No workout loaded, focused on zone2 (blue):
this one is mostly used on group rides, where the ride leader will ask everyone to pull at say 20mph. So having speed on this and the navigation page is important. Hmm, 21mph in flatland at that power for me means one thing - strong tailwind!!!
Have a bunch of other screens, the ones above are used all the time.
Interval Ave Pwr
TR in minimized mode
Ride Time (elapsed)
Time of Day
Racing/Preferred screen if I don’t have to keep an eye on the Time of Day:
What is the Normalized Power important for? I figure that’s something of a summary of the workout effort?
Also I didn’t know you could add IF to the display. That’s neat, thanks!!
Outdoor structured workout
What head unit are these from?
Garmin Edge 530, using some Connect IQ data fields
Average Power Field
and Target Power - for outdoor workouts so I don’t have do do the sums to workout what I should be aiming for
Looks like the Garmin UI is much more sophisticated than the Wahoo UI with sliders
