    They are not adding any more sports modes, that is what they added Freestyle and gym modes for. Freestyle is for any GPS enabled non-core activities and Gym for non-GPS enabled activities. If they start adding sports modes then you may want equestrian sports and I may want football and someone else may want paddle sports, this is why then went with the generic Freestyle. The existing sports also tie into the lifetime totals on MySports. If they add more sports modes they would also need to redesign all of MySports to capture them. You should try using Freestyle it gets you distance based on GPS and calories based on HR (although the distance will be inaccurate as you are taking tight turns in a small environment so the overlap along with the normal GPS drift will impact it).

    Unfortunately, this is likely not going to happen for several reasons. First, there needs to be enough demand to justify the resources so there needs to be a large enough percentage of users that would use that feature to make it worth the investment of time for TT to program it (and there is no one to do this, see next point). More importantly, TT has left the wearables industry and is no longer producing new devices and has laid off the Sports Division, so I would not expect much beyond bug fixes go forward as they devices are now legacy products. They will likely support what they have but not add anything new. Essentially the devices are what they are at this point and we are going to have to live with them as they are.

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.

    The sport profiles feature lets you list all your favorite sports and define specific settings for each one of them. For example, you can create tailored views for each sport you do and choose what data you want to see when you train: just your heart rate or just speed and distance – whatever suits you and your training needs and requirements best.
    For more information on features related to the sport profiles, see the user manual of your training device.

    Your Polar device can contain a maximum of 20 sport profiles. In the Flow web service you can have as many sport profiles as there are sports in the Polar sport list. If you have over 20 sport profiles in the Flow web service, the first 20 on the list are transferred to your Polar device when syncing. You can change the order of your sport profiles by dragging and dropping them. Sport profile also very popular among students. It will be very useful to read free research papers

    Why are you posting the instructions for a Polar device on a TomTom forum? It does not apply.
