Well it has been a while!

Due to injury and general lard ar*sedness, my Polar M430 has been nothing but a wrist watch for far too long, but I have got my mojo polished and done a couple of mtb rides and managed a 5k this morning for the first time in >13mths. Just before I was crocked I replaced my 'dead' Garmin with a Polar M430 and was really pleased with it. However, it seems to have 'lost' the training modes when recording. Instead of the 'Running' and 'Cycling' I am sure that I remember it offering, the watch only now offers me two, "Other indoor' and 'Other outdoor'! I can change them by editing when the data is uploaded to the app but this is frustrating.

Any suggestions as to how to correct this or pointers as to what I am doing/have done wrong, will be most appreciated.

Thanks for the bumps guys. Perhaps the Polar is not a popular a watch as I thought?

Hello RB! Good to see you on here :-)

Don’t know about your polar watch but had a quick look for you. Is this of any use?

Looks like you add more on the app or web service.

Thanks PenW, I hope that you are well. I appreciate your advice. I can change them on the app but I am sure that when I first got the watch there were more options on it. No matter my few kms are being recorded
