Log into your Purple Patch account for full access to your education program for coaches and athletes. You need to sign in to view this page. We are rolling our structured runs to athletes, and below are a few important notes to ensure you can take advantage of them successfully: IS MY DEVICE COMPATIBLE? GARMIN: Yes Interval text/information display may vary slightly by model You will need to make sure the "outgoing" link is active in Today's Plan (see below) APPLE WATCH, POLAR, SUUNTO, or COROS: It Depends APPLE WATCH: possibly compatible via third-party setup: you may be able to use the "Outgoing" Strava link in Todays Plan (see below), then sync from Strava to Apple Health via HealthFit POLAR: not currently compatible as far as we know COROS AND SUUNTO: possibly compatible by syncing via a third-party app or manually downloading and syncing the .fit file to your device (see below) IMPORTANT TODAYS PLAN SETTINGS For structured sessions to export properly, you'll need to check these two settings: 1) Make sure TARGETS are enabled for your runs: Sign into Todays Plan Click on your name in the top right corner and select "Account" Select the "Thresholds/Zones" tab At the top of this tab, you'll see a blue button. Select "Run" (if it's not selected already) Make sure the "Heart Rate Targets" and "Pace Targets" boxes are CHECKED: 2) Activate the OUTGOING link between Todays Plan and your device/software (e.g. Garmin) In that same window as above, select the "Connections" tab Click "Outgoing" (the gray bar near the bottom of the window) Click "Connect" to link your account. If you have a Garmin, use the Garmin connection. If you have another type of device, you may be able to sync indirectly via Strava, RideWithGPS, or Underarmour (MapMyRun). You will be taken to a separate website to complete the process. Follow the prompts you're given on that page to activate the connection. MANUALLY DOWNLOADING AND IMPORTING A RUN POWER FILE If there is not a direct sync between Todays Plan and your device, you may be able to download the .fit power file and then import it into your device yourself. To do this: Open Todays Plan on a desktop browser and click on the desired workout In the top right corner of the workout window, click the download button Select the "Garmin FIT 🖤 option" (with a heart in the name) to download the file Import this .fit file into your device (usually via a website/portal, or via an app on your computer, depending on the brand) If you have any questions or are having trouble using the structured sessions, give us a shout at email@example.com.
