This is free a Data Field for the Fenix 3 that shows multiple values on a single field. RunnersField is open source and its code resides at github: https://github.com/kopa/RunnersField

Release versions are published in the Garmin App Store






  • TIME: 12/24h mode based on system settings.
  • PACE: pace in km/min or mi/min based on system settings (as average of the last 10 values).
  • AVG PACE: average pace over the whole activity.
  • DISTANCE: elapsed distance in km or miles based on system settings.
  • DURATION: duration of the activity in [hh:]mm:ss
  • GPS: green/blue bars for poor/acceptable/good signal, gray if no signal.
  • battery: visualization of battery percentage as indicator bar. If battery value is lower than 30 the indicator bar gets orange. If value is lower than 10% the exact value will be shown and the indicator bar turns red.
  • unit system in use: "(km)" will be shown when metric system is set in the settings, "(mi)" if statute (imperial) units are configured.
  • use bright or dark color scheme based on the background color setting of the app (Settings/Apps/Run/Background Color). needs at least a firmware with SDK 1.2 compatibility (otherwise bright scheme is always used).
