Cycling applications and data fields


The cycling applications and data fields support you in improving your cycling, biking or downhill performance by tracking the most important parameters like distance, speed, etc. with high sensitivity GPS. Additionally ANT+™ compatible sensors for heart rate, cadence, speed, power and temperature monitoring are supported for a finely-tuned analysis of your ride1). All applications and data fields can be fully configured by the user in many different ways.

The Cycling, MTB and Downhill App Professional,  running on all Connect IQ™ compatible Garmin wearables are standalone applications which can be used fully independent of the Garmin native apps.

The CyclingDF4 and CyclingDF7 data fields, running on all Garmin wearables with Connect IQ™ 2 and higher, can be integrated into any of the Garmin native apps. They are optimized for all different wearables for showing a huge amount of information with best possible font size.
