    Welp, it looks like Microsoft finally turned on the VO2 max tracking on the Health Dashboard site. This is my current level according to the dashboard, what's yours?

    Also, according to the little 'i' tooltip, there is one level above "very high". Any guesses on what could it be? Maximum?

    Maximum? Lance Armstrong when he was doping would probably be one of the highest ever for V02. I forgot what year was his best year, but it was the year that his doping guru said " as long as you don't fall off the bike, you cant lose ".

    Maximum non doping, hum..

    I haven't tracked enough rides yet for it to show up. I'm a little confused by this metric though. From what I've read in the past VO2Max is kind of your genetic ability to process oxygen. Training can bump it up a little, but you pretty much get what you get. If you're an aspiring young cyclists, they may run a VO2 Max test on you to see if you have the genetic potential to compete at a high level. If it comes out low, you pretty much don't have a chance in the pros.

    They way I've always understood it, fitness level is more a matter of how well trained you are.

    Hmm... This is one of the metrics I have always been curious about. When I've had it done, it was always with a respirator. How can Band do this accurately w/o tracking your O2 consumption?

    I'm at the highest level - it's labeled "Elite". Not sure what the numeric breakouts are, but my level is 53.9.

    I have 39.4. I don't understand why dashboard says "high", when all tables considers this value as "Far" or "Below normal", I'm 32 and I've been started training (run) only a month ago, even if I'm in perfect weight, just to improve my cario-vascular fitness.

    I found this article on how VO2 max can be calculated:

    Estimation of V?O2max from the ratio between HRmax and HRrest ? the Heart Rate Ratio Method - Springer
    Apparently, it's within 4-5% of a test with all the gear attached to you.

    Similar here. Have done several rides (nowhere near that long, go Tim!) and still nothing showing for fitness level.

    I've never run or bike with the band and it shows the fitness level on my dashboard. I think you just need a few sessions of any workout.

    I have 23 sessions of logged exercises thus far since latter part of march. Mine are all just 'exercise tracking', no running, biking or even guided work outs

    Over 200 miles of cycling, a few runs/walks and still no fitness level. May have to try harder!

    Not sure if this is a magic trick but...

    ...mine didn't update until after I logged out of the Dashboard AND cleared my cookies/cache for the site. Logged back in and voila, it worked.

    Cleared my cookies and cache, logged out and back in. Still nothing. Maybe they need to roll it out in stages on the back end?

    I tried that, and now I have this: "To get an estimate of your fitness level, a few new run or bike workouts with elevated heart rate are required (a minimum of five new workouts are required for the initial estimate)."

    I wonder if that means 5 new workouts since the dashboard update was pushed? And what might it mean by elevated HR? Since the update was pushed, I have several low intensity workouts, and 3 where my HR reached what it defines as my "Very Hard" Zone. Perhaps I need two more of those.

    Where is this setting in on the dashboard!?

    The overview resides directly to the right in the dashboard. when you open it up in the "Home"section.
    Mine states that I need to create at least five new workouts or runs in order for it to show any data.
    So it seems that the last update of the Band or Health app bumped the ability to interpret the sensor data up a notch and so it can't use the old data because it seems to collect new data and thus you have to complete five to six workouts or runs / bike rides for it to work.

    So get up and collect that data! :-)
    I need to do it myself just for the informational value of it. In my opinion, I'm pretty bad at lung capacity - or at least it's my feeling so I'm pretty interested on what the Band will show me.
    Always love new information about myself and my fitness.

    Regards,
