    Today I completed my 5th 20 mile bike ride, but still no Vo2 Max reading. It says I need at least 5 bike rides to get this reading.
    How many rides does it actually take?

    According to the dashboard, "To get an estimate of your VO2 max, you’ll need to do at least 5 run or bike workouts with an elevated heart rate."

    How many times did you get a 1 min and 2 min ending HR reading? Those readings were elusive for many Gen 1 Band owners, as was the VO2 Max calculation.

    I've done many dozens of bike and run workouts with elevated heart rate on Band 1 and Band 2 and still no VO2 Max, but I'm so far from an elite athlete that it is kind of silly for me to worry about that.

    I have 1 min and 2 min ending HR on 4 of the 5 rides. The only time I didn't get it is when the Band ran out of power near the end of the ride. So, I guess I need 1 more complete ride and then I will hopefully get the Vo2 reading.

    I have now completed 8 twenty mile bike rides and still no VO2 max reading. Is my band broken? What is it going to take to get VO2? Is anyone getting the result?

    Some are indicating that you have to get good 1 minute and 2 minute HR readings after you end the exercise. It might be best to minimize movement that might confuse it during that time. Or you can manually take readings.

    Note that VO2 is something calculated and displayed on the back-end. It's not done by the Band itself.

    I have had good 1 and 2 minute HR readings on 7 of the 8 rides. Still no VO2.
