Goal Countdown Datafield Let me introduce you to a data field one of our community members,  Gavriel  created:  Goal Data Field It was inspired by  garminbadges.com  and I made it for myself but I thought it can be useful for others in this community. Goal Countdown DF displays your progress towards the goals you set and optionally alerts when you reach it. The current version works with 2 manually set goals. If there will be positive feedback and interest then I'm planning to add the badges, challenges as well. Description Supported goal measures: activity time, activity distance, activity ascent, activity calories, daily active minutes, daily distance, daily ascent (elevation gain), daily calories, daily steps, daily floors climbed, daily pushes, daily push distance, weekly active minutes. To enable  alert screen  (the green screen with the star   or trophy   icon): 1.  From the device enter the activity: Start/Select - choose your activity 2.  Up/Menu - {activity} settings - Ale

How to get one of the race badges (hacking/cheating the system)

Image
   The badge Saulkrastu Stirnu Buks 2024 This post will be about cheating or hacking the system to get a badge. I don't promote cheating so what you do with this information is up to you. I don't do it. I just hack the system to understand how it works. I will be using my test account to get the badge. My main account will not have this badge. The badge  Saulkrastu Stirnu Buks 2024 is a typical race badge. You had to do a race at the correct location at the right date and time. Description: " Complete at least a 5-km run in the Stirnu buks event in Saulkrastu, Latvia, on March 23, 2024." Start by investigating the description to get the requirements. Distance: At least 5 km (so any distance longer than 5 km) Activity: Running Course:  Saulkrastu Stirnu Buks event Location: Saulkrastu, Latvia Date: March 23, 2024 You need to find the race course. Start by looking at the race page to see if you can download the course. https://www.stirnubuks.lv/race/2024/saulkrasti/?la
