Quick menu

You can access the quick menu from pre-training mode, during a session when paused and during transition mode in multisport sessions. In pre-training mode it can be accessed by tapping the icon or with the LIGHT button. In pause and transition mode it can only be accessed with the LIGHT button.

The options displayed in the quick menu depend on the sport you have chosen and whether you are using GPS.

 

Power save settings:

The power save settings allow you to extend your training time by changing the GPS recording rate, setting Wrist-based heart rate off and using the Screen saver. These settings let you optimize battery usage and get more training time for extra long sessions or when the battery is running low.

For more information, see Power save settings

  Backlight:

Set the Backlight always on feature On or Off. With always on chosen the watch display will be illuminated throughout your training session. The backlight setting will default back to Off after you finish your training session. Please note that the always on setting will drain your battery much faster than the default setting.

 

Calibrate compass;

Follow the instructions on the display to calibrate the compass.

In Our suggestions you'll find the daily FitSpark training suggestions.

 

Pool length:

When using the Swimming/Pool swimming profile, it’s important that you choose the correct pool length, as it affects pace, distance and stroke calculation, as well as your SWOLF score. Press OK to access the Pool length setting and change the previously set pool length if necessary. The default lengths are 25 meters, 50 meters and 25 yards, but you can also set it manually to a custom length. The minimum length that can be chosen is 20 meters/yards.

Pool length setting is only available in the pre-training mode from the quick menu.

  Calibrate power sensor:

If you have paired a third-party cycling power sensor with your watch, you can calibrate the sensor from the quick menu. First, choose one of the cycling sport profiles and wake up the transmitters by rotating the cranks. Then choose Calibrate power sensor from the quick menu and follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate your sensor. For calibration instructions specific to your power sensor, see the manufacturer's instructions.

  Calibrate stride sensor:

There are two ways to manually calibrate your stride sensor via the quick menu. Choose one of the running sport profiles and then choose Calibrate stride sensor > Calibrate by running or Calibration factor.

  • Calibrate by running: Start the training session and run a distance you know. The distance has to be more than 400 meters. When you have ran the distance, press OK to take a lap. Set the actual distance you have ran and press OK. The calibration factor is updated.
    Please note that interval timer cannot used during the calibration. If you have set the interval timer on, the watch will ask you to turn it off to enable manual stride sensor calibration. You can turn the timer on from the pause mode quick menu after calibration.
  • Calibration factor: Set the calibration factor manually if you know the factor which gives you accurate distance.

For detailed instructions on manual and automatic calibration of a stride sensor, see Calibrating a Polar stride sensor with Grit X/Vantage V/Vantage M.

This option is shown only if you have paired a stride sensor with your watch.

  Favorites:

In Favorites you'll find training targets that you have saved as favorites in the Flow web service, and sync it to your watch. Choose a favorite training target you want to perform. After your choice, the watch returns to the pre-training mode where you can start the training session.

For more information, see Favorites.

  Race pace:

The Race Pace feature helps you keep a steady pace and achieve your target time for a set distance. Define a target time for the distance - 45 minutes for a 10k run for example and follow how far behind or ahead you are compared to your pre-set target. You can also check what the steady pace/speed to meet your target is.

Race Pace can be set on your watch. Just choose the distance and target duration and you’re ready to go. You can also set a Race Pace target in the Flow web service or app, and sync it to your watch.

For more information, see Race Pace.

 

Interval timer:

You can set time and/or distance based interval timers to precisely time work and recovery phases in your interval training sessions.

To add interval timer to your training views for the session, choose Timer for this session > On. You can use a previously set timer or create a new timer by returning to the quick menu and choosing Interval timer > Set interval timer:

  1. Choose Time-based or Distance-based: Time-based: Define minutes and seconds for the timer and press OK. Distance-based: Set the distance for the timer and press OK. Set another timer? is shown. To set another timer, press OK.
  2. When completed, the watch returns to pre-training mode where you can start the training session. The timer starts when you start the training session.

For more information, see During Training.

  Countdown timer:

To add countdown timer to your training views for the session, choose Timer for this session > On. You can use a previously set timer or create a new timer by returning to the quick menu and choosing Countdown timer > Set timer. Set the countdown time, and press OK to confirm. When completed, the watch returns to pre-training mode where you can start the training session. The timer starts when you start the training session.

For more information, see During Training.

 

Routes:

In Routes, you'll find the routes that you have saved as favorites in the Flow web service Explore view or in the analysis view of your training session, and synced to your watch. Komoot routes are also found here.

Choose the route from the list, and then choose where you want to start the route: Start point (original direction), Mid-route (original direction), End point to reverse direction or Mid-route to reverse direction.

For more information, see Route Guidance.

Routes are only available in the pre-training mode quick menu if GPS is set on for the sport profile.

  Back to start:

The back to start feature guides you back to the starting point of your session. To add the Back to start view to your training views of the current training session, choose Back to start on, and press OK.

For more information, see Back to start.

The back to start feature is only available if GPS is set on for the sport profile.

When you choose a training target for your session, the Favorites and Routes options are crossed out in the quick menu. This is because you can only choose one target for the session. And if you choose a route for your session, the Back to start feature will be crossed out in the quick menu because Routes and Back to start features cannot be chosen at the same time. To change the target, choose the crossed out option and you will be asked if you want to change your target or route. Confirm with OK to choose another target.
