Bike distance field on default marq athlete watch face


loving the marq athlete watch and I like the default watch face but the total bike distance field always shows zero. 

I use a stages spin bike and it does send the watch the distance total at the end of the session (it’s displayed on the bike computer). Power etc all get sent, so I update the record on garmin connect afterwards. The garmin connect record is right but the distance is not reflected on the watch face or on the history records on the watch. 

i can’t seem to find a way of updating the record on the watch or even adding the distance to the watch directly at the end of the session. 

it’s a shame because that part of the watch face doesn’t add any value for me. 

any ideas on how this can be addressed?
