Disable Garmin Running Power Data Fields:

    • Start by navigating to the activity settings on your Garmin watch. You can usually access this by selecting your running profile and then pressing the menu button.
    • Go into the data screens or data fields settings, depending on your watch model.
    • Look for any data fields that are set to display Garmin’s native running power metrics and remove or replace them. You might see fields labeled as “Power” or “Running Power.”
    • Ensure that no screens are set to display Garmin’s running power metrics to avoid any confusion during your runs.

Install and Configure the Stryd Data Field:

    • If you haven’t already, download the Stryd data field from the Garmin Connect IQ Store and install it on your watch.
    • Once installed, add the Stryd power data field to one of your running profile screens. This ensures that you’re viewing and recording power data from your Stryd device.
