10k = 10000m,
5 mile = 8047m,
10 mile = 16090m,
Half Marathon = 21080m,

Additional Weight Calorie Calculation (kg): use for weighted vest or running dumbbells
Stroller: Weight Child+Stroller(kg):  enter total weight for calorie calculation for Stroller Running Only.
AutoScroll Screen(0=OFF, 1-15 second): screens will scroll every set seconds.
AutoPause (speed in watch units) (0=OFF, 1-10): App will pause when slower than value, 0 is off.
Lap Method:
-Manual Lap Button; Button Press only
-AutoLap by Distance: Laps by Distance set Lap Distance value.
-AutoLap by Position: Uses up to two(2) positions to Lap.  Start Position and Second Position set by Lap Button Press.  The Second position can be reset by pressing the Lap Button again.
-AutoLap by Distance/AutoLap by Position: Uses both Autolap Settings
Lap Distance (Distance is Watch Units) [0.1 is minimum lap distance] Laps will occur every set distance value.
Alert Timer in Minutes: Sets a Timer Alert. Repeats every set minutes, Zero (0) is Off.
Invert Color:  Changes Background Color.  Unset white Background, set black background.

HRV Settings (CIQ 3.0+ Only)

(CIQ3.0) Average HRV: this is a learned value and is the average of all saved runs
(CIQ3.0)ADJUST HRV: THIS SHOULD NOT BE CHANGED.
(CIQ3.0) Heart Abnormalities thresholds (+/- BPM) used to set Heart Abnormilaity location graph.  A lower value the more sensitive.

Screen Data Fields: 34 data* options** available.
*If Data is not supported in the watch a negative value will be shown.
**If option is not supported in app, Current Pace will be shown.
Pace, Distance, Cadence, Average Cadence, Timer (ET), Adjusted Calorie (avghrc), Energy Expenditure (Cal/hr), Training Effect (TE), Heart Rate(hr), average heart rate(ahr), Max heart rate (mhr), Laps, Lap Time (ltime), lap speed (lPace), lap distance (ldist), last lap speed (llPace), last lap time (lltime), last lap distance (lldist) (CIQ2.0+), best lap time (bltime) (CIQ2.0+), Delta Time (+/-)(CIQ2.0+), Vertical Speed/minute (CIQ2.0+), Elevation, Total Ascent (tA), Total Decent (tD) (CIQ2.0+), temperature (tempe sensor), HRV(CIQ3.0+), HRV Difference (HRV+/-)(CIQ3.0+), Detected Abnormal Beats (xhr)(CIQ3.0+), RR Heart Rate(rrhr)(CIQ3.0+), RRinterval (rrint)(CIQ3.0+), rMSSD(CIQ3.0+), SDNN(CIQ3.0+).

Transition to Next App(CIQ2.0+): Allows the app to automatically to start the next app after completed activity.  Select from next activity from the list.  The App MUST be installed to transition.  The current app at save menu will add a new selection “Transition ->“.  Transition -> will Save the current activity, and start next activity.  The current App values Time, Distance, Calories, steps will be passed to next Activity for a Total Session(s) Value.

Safe Alert (SMS Text / Email)

RunSafe+ and BikeSafe+ have SafeAlert* Technology to send a Text Message and an Email to someone who can help in an emergency.  The App will send messages after 3 minutes (180 seconds) of motionless (not moving) activity.  This function works for Outdoor Run/walks GPS Enabled ONLY.   *The use of a Mobile Phone with internet and the Garmin Connect App (Google  or iTunes) is required for this feature to send safe alert messages.  Only can send text messages to devices that accept SMS text devices, (I.e. Cellular Phone).

Text Message Alert fields

Recipient’s Phone Number (##########) Enter the send to: phone number.  Use country/area code if necessary in your area.  Numbers Only (no dashes ‘-‘).

Recipient’s Mobile SMS Carrier Gateway Enter the gateway address as @gateway.com.   For Example, Verizon users, use @vtext.com.

Email Message Alert

Your Email: or Second Alert Email: enter valid email.
Sent Recipient Message: Custom message to be sent to Recipient. Enter up to 36 Characters.
To test: Start RunSafe or BikeSafe app and with Garmin Connect Mobile App is running on phone and paired to the watch.  Device is connected, if the “b” or “B” is shown as below.

.  

After 90 seconds without moving(still), the app screen will change to:

Press the lap button to cancel alert.  After another 90 seconds, with countdown. The app will send a message to a server that will relay the messages to the Phone Number/SMS Gateway and email to the email recipient(s).

AutoLap by Position

How the Autolap by position works, at the the Activity Start, the app remembers the start location, every time you pass the start location the App will Autolap.
If you press the Manual Lap, a second lap by location will be used. And every time you pass the Start Location and the Manual Lap location, the App will AutoLap.
The auto lap function uses a the default 25 meter radius(40m diameter) circle, once you enter the Autolap circle the app will Autolap when you start to move away from the GPS Lap Location.  If your missing laps use the larger radius in configuration.

Consider the picture below, the yellow dot is the GPS Autolap location.  The Green arrows is the direction traveling.  Once you enter the circle, the app will auto lap.  In this case it will lap as you cross the Yellow dot(at the redline).

If you entered the 25m radius circle and turned around (at the Blue Arrow) and leave the circle the App will Autolap at the Red Dot

How your laps will look.

Few suggestions,

1.) The app needs a good GPS lock, wait until the GPS is GREEN.
2.) Set Data Recording to every second.  This is located in the watch, under the main menu, Settings>System>Data Recording> set to every second.
