Wake up to your morning report with HRV status to see health insights alongside an overview of sleep, recovery and training outlook. Plan your race strategy with the race widget, which enables personalised daily suggested workouts that adapt to performance, recovery, the race you’re running and its course. Get ready to make the most of every run with wrist-based running power and multi-band GPS. And when you want to switch it up with cross training, choose from more than 30 activity profiles, including triathlon, cycling, swimming and more.
