Customize Your In-Activity Dashboards – iOS

(View for Android)

Sometimes default views just don’t tell the whole story. When you are ready to customize the stats you want to see, where you want to see them, it’s time to work with Fitdigits Custom Dashboards.

Each workout type has a different a unique dashboard, allowing you to only see what is appropriate for each workout type, but can also be fully customized or expanded on.

Customizing your Fitdigits workout dashboard

  1. Go to the Fitdigits home screen and tap on the Workout icon of the workout you wish to customize your dashboard for. We will choose “Bike”.
  2. Tap the Gear icon > Bike Options > Dashboards.
  3. Tap “Add New Dashboard” to create a new dashboard, or tap the “i” button next to the dashboards below to edit them
  4. Tap on the location of the metric you wish to edit. Now specify a main metric and two secondary metrics. NOTE: Some of the longer secondary metrics, when paired with another long secondary metric, can be difficult to read.
  5. Tap on the metric you wish to change, and then choose a metric page. On this page you will choose what metric you wish to display in the designated spot during a workout. You have four types of metric, depending on the workout. For a run workout, you can choose from General Metrics, Cardio Metrics, Structured Metrics, and Running Metrics. In a bike workout, for example, Running Metrics would be replaced by Cycling Metrics.
  6. Choose which metric you want to display and then tap “Metrics” in the upper right.
  7. You will be taken back to the metrics page to review the new metrics and make any changes to other metrics. When you are satisfied, tap the button in the upper left, in this case “Run”, and when you are satisfied with all of the changes you have made tap save.

NOTE: If you ever want to go back to the default Fitdigits metrics, tap “Restore Defaults”.

Viewing / Adding Multiple Dashboards

In Fitdigits iOS apps you have the ability to have multiple workout dashboards in a single workout. This is especially useful if you are using custom workouts or using multiple sensors. It can be very helpful to have one dashboard per sensor. For example, one dashboard tracking distance, speed and cadence. Another dashboard for heart rate, calories and time elapsed. A third dashboard for zone stats if you are using custom heart zones.

To activate a dashboard, simply follow the steps above, but check, or uncheck, the dashboards you want to use in workout for an activity.

To view the multiple dashboards in-app, simply swipe to the right or left through them.
