Did you know that you know you can set up a variety of alerts on your Garmin? I have used this mostly as a time based alert to remind me to eat. You can use the alerts to monitor your pace, heart rate, distance, and even a run/walk interval. The directions below are based off my Garmin 230 Forerunner watch but it should be similar for other Garmins.
To access the Alerts on the watch follow this path.
If you haven’t set any up the next choice you will see is “Add New”. Choose the type of alert you want to create; custom, heart rate, run/walk, pace, time, distance, or calories.
Custom has some cool choices like drink, eat, turnaround, go home, or you can even make a custom custom one!
After you have created your alert (based on whatever you need your watch to alert you about) you must turn it on for that activity. To do this follow this path.
Find the Alert you created and make sure the status is “On”
Be prepared to be alerted!
