Once you start actively training with a Stryd foot pod and power, it won’t take long before you realize the out-of-the-box functionality is limited when it comes to displaying power metrics in real time.
With the Stryd Zones Connect IQ (CIQ) data field, you are limited to just showing two metrics at a time and those metrics have to be power-based (i.e. pace, distance, and time metrics aren’t supported).
The challenge is most runners will want at least two power fields visible (e.g. current power and lap power) along with distance or time fields.
So, how do we get more flexibility than the Stryd Zones data field?
You install another CIQ data field called Run Power by FlowState. Not only is it one of the most flexible data fields for running with power, but it’s free and supports a wide range of Garmin watches.
The rest of this post will show you how to install and get started with the Run Power data field.
