:)   but then you look young in your AC photo.

It's probably not too far off. Garmin Connect, the part of Gamin where you upload your data to, now displays an estimated V02 score.

it said 58 if I remember - no idea what that means lest I "google".

Hmmmm, where does it do this ? Cant seem to find it on my screens.

It's on the Dashboard, or home screen, on the right hand column.

@Gus Do you have some sort of Garmin Connect premium? I do not see a VO2 Max displayed in the RH column of my dashboard.

I didn't either until I manually entered it. I suspect you need power figures as well.

Oh, maybe your right. Michael, you have a power meter now. It's rolled that figure of 47 out to all my personal settings too. Give it a few rides and it might show. It does say it uses just HR:

You can use your Garmin device paired with the heart rate monitor to display your VO2 Max estimate. VO2 Max is the maximum volume of oxygen (in milliliters) you can consume per minute per kilogram of body weight at your maximum performance. In simple terms, VO2 Max is an indication of athletic performance and should increase as your level of fitness improves. VO2 Max estimates are provided and supported by Firstbeat® Technologies Ltd.

Thanks Gus.  It appears like I can only manually enter a VO2 Max value in my profile.

I played around with some variables and waist measurement made a bit of difference. Still about 30 years younger than chrono age.LOL

Great feel good factor, though as accurate as my thumb measuring the height of a crane

absolute rocket science thumbs and cranes - I'm impressed!
