Note according to the help center, this is a specific question about "gear and gadgets used during exercise" and NOT a recommendation question.

I want to know if the Garmin forerunner 920xt sports watch supports a triathlon plan on garmin connect.... by that I don't mean a tri plan on a pdf sheet, I mean a schedule in a calendar format which you can check off as you train (like the nike+ running app "coach" plans)

I came across this reddit thread which suggests they do have sprint and olympic plans but I want to know for sure.

Disclaimer: I have the 910 - but I think it's the same for the 920 as well

Short answer: Yes

Long, and detailed answer:

Browsing on the Training plans inside garmin connect, there are several training plans for either Sprint or Olympic distance.

Once I selected a plan, and set it's start date

It was added to my Connect calendar.

Once within your Connect calendar, you can simply send the plan to your device.

  • This is an example of a swim practice.

As you can see, you get the swim for x seconds, only it's not built in as a lap. Do like me: just print the practice, and put it at pool side where you rest anyway :-)

  • exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much for the detail. The sports watch is a big buy, this whole plan thing just seals the deal for me so it looks like it's worth the money. I only have two more questions: (A) Does it by an chance give you fine grain notifications (like 200m swim complete now rest for 30 secs..) (B) How do you "check off" each day of training ? – gideon May 15 '15 at 13:51
  • There are no swim notifications. Just print it, and rest it in the pool side. As for "check off" :-) I guess you need to start and do them :-) It's a per day practice, if you missed one, you can't do it later (unless you push the entire plan forward. – Saariko May 15 '15 at 15:23
