Sport Profiles

Lets you list all your favorite sports and define specific settings for each one of them. For example, you can create tailored views for each sport you do and choose what data you want to see when you train: just your heart rate or just speed and distance – whatever suits you and your training needs and requirements best.

There are six sport profiles on your V800 by default. In the Flow web service you can add new sport profiles to your sports list, as well as edit them and existing profiles. Your V800 can contain a maximum of 20 sport profiles. The number of sport profiles in the Flow web service is not limited. If you have over 20 sport profiles in the Flow web service, the first 20 in the list are transferred to your V800 when syncing.

You can change the order of your sport profiles by dragging and dropping them. Choose the sport you want to move and drag it into the place you want to put it in the list.
