Intensity minutes - Edge + watch

Hi all! 

I'm new owner of Edge 830. Before that, I've used my FR935 for bike activities, and every ride increased my Intensity Minutes. Now I'm riding with Edge, without FR935 on my hand. In both cases I always use HR strap. Edge do not increase my Intensity Minutes. What's more - day HR timeline don't shows graph for bike activity. Of course in concrete ride I can see HR graph. On both devices I have Physio TrueUp set on.  Do you have similar behaviour or it's something wrong with my setup? Garmin can't help me...

ps. e.g. recovery time from Edge, activity is visible on my FR935.

  • So I wanted to close the loop here on my discussion and questions.  I received my new Fenix 5X the other day and have been monitoring my HR with it throughout the say.  Today I did a 3.5 hour fravel ride and tracked that with my Edge 830.  Based on the feedback in this thread, I wore my Fenix 5X but did NOT start an activity on the Fenix-simply wore it while riding and did nothing else.  I then started my edge 830 like I normally would for a ride, ride out 1:45 to a coffee shop, paused the Edge while I had an iced latte, then started it again to ride back to my car.  At my car, I saved the ride like normal. And it auto uploaded to GC (like normal).  I checked my GC account and saw it automatically sensed the activity and gave me IM for the ride-so it worked just fine and didn’t really use much battery on my F5X either.

    Here is the plot for the day showing my HR tracking.  BTW: the activity tracking recorded my HR using the F5X optical sensor and not the HR strap I was wearing-I know because my max HR from my edge showed 179, while the activity shows 182 (which I didn’t hit).  

    The dip in the middle of the plot is when I was stopped to drink my latte.

    Hope that helps answer questions?  Yeah, I too would like to just take my watch off and leave it in the car while I ride-but this works just fine now that I understand how to ise it, and doesn’t create duplicate activities, or drain the F5X battery excessively either-so all is food in my book.
