Race Pace (Grit X/Pacer/Vantage)
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.
Race pace can be set on your Grit X/Vantage, or you can also set a race pace target in the Flow web service and sync it to your watch.
If you have scheduled race pace target for that day, Grit X/Vantage suggests you to start it when entering pre-training mode.
