Cycling Dynamics are metrics and visualisations available on selected Garmin computers and watches. They present precise data on the distribution of power generated by the user during crank rotation. The new POWERCRANK TWIN2 records and transmits the following parameters:

    • Start angle of positive power (positive torque)
    • Final angle of positive power (positive torque)
    • Initial angle of peak power (peak torque)
    • Final angle of peak power (peak torque)
  • SEATED/STANDING POSITION – riding position
  • RIGHT/LEFT BALANCE – share of power generated by the right and left leg, expressed as % of total power


Those parameters can be displayed on the computer/watch screen during the activity, in addition they will be presented graphically and numerically in the Garmin Connect app when the completed activity is uploaded.

If you have a compatible watch or computer, you will need to manually activate the handling of this data. You will find how to do this in the manual of your computer/watch. Usually, all you need to do is go into your device’s power meter settings, find the ‘cycling dynamics’ option and enable/set it as active.
