Does anyone have Garmin Connect IQ add-ins installed and care to make recommendations?

I have this one on my watch, to supply a training metric in a currency I can understand: apps.garmin.com

It works really well. This morning's run:

Garmin very kindly opened up their interface so that users could contribute useful and insightful training aids. And almost the first thing they do is programme a beer counter. What does this tell us about the male psyche, I wonder.

Parkrun barcode is in Barcode Wallet (widget, not full app).

Garmin Pay (that might be default app actually now).

Very little else. Deleted the default golf app! :-) G

"Racescreen" datafield is a brilliant way of making sure you're on top of pacing in the event of GPS wobbles and inaccuracies. Hiighly recommended!

I love that racescreen app/datafield. :-)

More or less the first thing I installed when I got the Garmin five years ago, and apart from a clock face and a hiking app, that’s all I’ve bothered with since.

I used to have a pacer on my previous watch. It was full screen, enter your target pace and it would tell you how many minutes and seconds you're ahead or behind, with the screen green if ahead and red if behind. That's all. Dead simple and clear and great for races.

But now I can't find it :-)

I use ‘ rolling average pace' datafield which gives you exactly that, ie it smooths instant pace but is more dynamic than lap pace..

I also use the Garmin Combo Running Power datafield (you need a compatible HR strap)

And the Crystal Watch face

Oh and if use used ‘distance in Opposite Units' before as well!

Anyone tried “Face it” to create your own watch face?
