on my Forerunner 255, it would be very useful to select which running shoe I used on that run immediately afterwards, instead of having to add the specific shoe via the Garmin Connect app when being home again.
That's old idea, similar with option to set default gear separately for each sub-type (currently it's only for main category). No changes so far.
I would prefer templates: title, type, gear, course. It's very often the same paths and matching gear, so could be selected from recent list and all data would appear with one click.
