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. Active dashboards will show with a blue check next to them for the specific activity type.

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