After PaceAssist was synced to the watch, you can use it as a data field.

 

PaceAssist is setup with the same method as Paceband. Please refer to Paceband instructions for installation and configuration on the watch.

 

When you are ready to run, scroll to the PaceAssist Screen.

It will show your checkpoint names with the distances.

 

 

Always check this before race day!

If the times/distances were not set correctly, for example Distance for checkpoint 2 is less than Distance for checkpoint 1, “Invalid Chart” will be displayed.

 

When the activity is started, the following will be displayed:

 

Time = Time since start of activity.

Avg Pace = Your average pace since start of activity.

Pace = Your current pace (Average pace over the last 6 seconds).

Dist = Distance covered since start of activity.

Tm @CP = When you reach a checkpoint, this will indicate time ahead or behind your target. (Green = ahead, Red = behind)

CP Pace = Your average pace since the last checkpoint.

Planned Pace = The pace that you planned for the segment. When you reached a checkpoint, this will also indicate how much faster or slower you need to run for the remaining of the activity to reach your target.

Dist To CP = Remaining distance to next checkpoint.

HR = PaceAssist will also indicate your heart rate zone with a coloured bar in the centre of the display. The zones are read from your user profile.

Here is an example of reaching the checkpoint 54 seconds after planned time. The runner needs to run 18 sec per km (or miles if setup to display miles) faster than the planned pace (4:00 - 0:18 = 3:42) for the remaining activity distance to get on target. The runner should try to get CP Pace to 3:42 to get back on target.

 

   

Note: PaceAssist is based on elapsed time! When pausing the watch, it will continue to keep track of time, like in a real race.
