Garmin Native Power is different than Stryd Power

Garmin Power different

Updated over a week ago

In mid-2022, Garmin introduced it's own virtual running power native to all Garmin watches. As long as a Garmin user is using a Garmin heart rate chest strap or Running Dynamics pod, Garmin calculates a running power that is recorded to the activity file and visible in the post-run data.

This Garmin power is distinct and separate from Stryd power. They are not comparable and are not relatable to one another. Stryd's power will also be visible if you have the Stryd Zones Data Fields or the Stryd Workout app installed on your Garmin watch.

If you only want to see the Stryd Power we suggest that you check your data on the Stryd Mobile app!

If you want to stop your watch from recording the Native Garmin Run Power please follow these instructions.
