Garmin UltraTrac Mode for Longer Battery Life

An ultramarathon (ultra distance) or extra long hike may require a decrease in track detail to ensure a sufficient battery life of the watch, while a normal activity may benefit from greater detail. UltraTrac is a GPS mode that decreases the update rate of GPS data to once a minute, providing much longer battery life while in GPS mode.

ANT+ sensors will continue recording while the device is in UltraTrac mode.

Uses for UltraTrac

  • Multiple-day activities when you cannot charge your watch. 
  • When precise GPS is not needed. 
  • Conserving battery is more important than accurate tracking.

Using UltraTrac Mode

  1. Hold UP/MENU.
  2. Select or scroll to Settings.
  3. Select Activites & Apps.
  4. Choose an App.
  5. Select the settings for the App (for example 'Run Settings').
  6. Select GPS or Satellites.
  7. Select UltraTrac.
