How does it work?

This widget provides an additional screen on your Garmin device where you see the next nutrition product to consume, but also a progress bar for your drink bottles. In the menu you can see the complete nutrition and drinking plan and change the following settings:

  • Turning alerts on and off. When turned on you will get a notification when it is time to consume your next food product.
  • Turning confirmations on and off. When turned on you can confirm for each food product whether you have actually eaten it, so that you within the widget can keep track of you nutrition intake.
