  • Benefits from Rep Count function

    Greetings. Can someone explain benefits of function Rep Count (calculation of repetitions and weights) during strength training?
    In Garmin Connect reports displaing summarise of the "raised" weights, but this indicator without segmentation by exercises or 1RM is useless - https://goo.gl/hZxiMJ


    The only benefit that I see is a more precise calculation of the consumption of kcal due to the fixation of time for approach and rest.
    What is still useful for the function of the Count?

    I think the main purpose of the rep count function is keeping an automated log of strength excercises. I do not think it is taken into account in any calculation.

      What purpose of that counting if you can't use that data? You can't analyze rep count data or some how use them.

      In other apps for strength training like Jefit, it is possible to analyze progress by exercise with total and 1RM weight.

        Well, I guess it's up to you how you use it. Garmin just logs it for you.
