Garmin Edge help - smoothing power

Ive just got my new Edge unit, how do I change the smoothing on the power output? Just getting back into training using power zones and currently its set to average power over 3 seconds - how do I change this? id like it to be longer while I get back into it. Thanks

    Quite easy on the 810, assume similar on yours:
    Press the screen on your Pwr 3s field. When it changes colour release and you will be in the Data Fields options,
    Scroll down to Power & tap on it, then again scroll down to your chosen field 'Power 30 Avg' or whatever & tap on it. This should take you back to your original screen
  • Yeah see what your saying, but im trying to change it for the Workout Data Screen, I.e. when you're out riding, it says Ride in Power Zone 3 (3 seconds avg) for 5 mins. It then shows the graphic of the power zone and the arrow moves accordingly corresponding to your 3 second power. But I can't seem to change this as when I go into the data screen settings, in 'Workout' it only shows 'Reorder Screen' with no ability to change settings of the Workout screen.

    hope that makes sense!?

    Which edge unit?

    Power output longer than 3 seconds is a bit laggy and quite useless as you ride
