  • Data Field: Fat Burner

    The Fat Burner is a simple datafield which fulfills a user request from Susun.

    Connect IQ App Store Link: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/7...2-20971e02898b

    This field calculates the fat calories burned depending on heart rate zone & calories:
    • Z1: 9kcal burned = 1 gram of fat burned
    • Z2: 80% fat
    • Z3: 50% fat
    • Z4: 20% fat
    • Z5: 0% fat


    In the settings you can:
    • opt to see Fat Burner (=default) / Carbs Burner / Fat Burner and Carbs Burner (Advice : do to consume too much carbs per hour, the absolute maximum is 70g/hour)


    During your run it looks like this:


    On Garmin Connect you can afterwards consult how many fat and carbs you have burned (if you have indicated in the settings to record it):


    how to activate the app on your watch?
    (it might be slightly different on your watch, this is how to do it on a fr735xt: from watch face - click start - choose an activity profile (eg Run) - hit down button - activity settings - click start - data screens - click start - screen 1 - click down button - field 1 - click start - hit down until you're over connect iq - hit down until you' re over fat burner - click start )

    Advice by Susun:
    For the users that want more accuracy, better if you use Karvonen formula using Garmin profile settings.
    Karvonen method is more precise because is related to VO2 max for the most of people so I recommend it.

    Go to your user profile and then HR zones configuration, choose %HRR and put your HR-Rest and set the zones as this:

    Z1: 50-65
    Z2: 65-75
    Z3: 75-85
    Z4: 95-95
    Z5: 95-100(HR Max)

        Taking into account % body fat

        May I suggest that you take into account in your Fat burner App the % (or mass) of body Fat before and after workout (based on initial energy stores as per attachment) and the burned fats in function of %VO2Max.

            i have started using this app and during the workout it's very nice but when i connect my watch to Garmin connect and review my data fields i cant see the fat burning data field.
            i have checked the 2 boxes that say record fat burned file to fit file but still nothing on Garmin connect dash board.
            any suggestions?
            thank you very much
            1/ Are you using iphone? The ios app does not work properly, but you can see the graphs via a webbrowser if you visit http://connect.garmin.com.

            2/ Are you using an epix? Epix devices don't support fit recording...

            3/ The data is at the moment only shown in graphical format, it's not yet available as summary information (on my todo list)

                    Have you configured the field to be used within the layout of your activity profile?

                    I don't have a VivoActive Hr myself, but I assume it should be similar to what I have to do on my FR735XT, here I do the following:
                    from watch face
                    - click start
                    - choose an activity profile (eg Run)
                    - click down button
                    - choose activity settings
                    - click start
                    - choose data screens
                    - click start
                    - screen 1
                    - click down button
                    - field 1
                    - click start
                    - hit down until you're over connect iq menu item
                    - click start
                    - hit down until you' re over fat burner
                    - click start
                    - press back until you're out of the configuration

                      Thanks! that worked. I was assuming it was a seperate page not a field inside an existing page. Cheers!

                          calculating question

                          hello,
                          i really enjoy using your app so thank you for that, second, i haven't figured how to read the results, for example: today i worked out, burned 673 calories, in the carb results it says 52 grams and if i multiply it by 4 gives us:208 calories from carbs and 22 grams from fat multiply by 9 which gives us 198 calories, altogether 406 calories, my question is: where are the missing 267 calories, am i missing something?
                          thank you
                          Jay Steph

                            to get to the calorie amount you have to multiply the carb grams also by 9, not by 4.
