    You want to use Gym mode, which is for indoor activities with no GPS. You will get HR and calories based on HR. Be aware the boxing may give you poor HR readings as the constant hitting will keep dislodging the sensor causing it to lose the HR reading.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Won't the impact of the hitting damage the watch?

    Not likely, they are designed to take shocks.

    the FREESTYLE setting looks like it is for WALKING...is this true?
    I'm a RACEWALKER...& on my old TOMTOM SPORT watch (version 1) i used the running mode.
    Since i average 10 min miles on short races & average abt 12 mins on HALF MARATHONS...

    Should i cont to use the RUNNING mode or change to FREESTYLE?

    Freestyle is for any GPS enabled outdoor activity other than running, cycling and swimming, which have their own modes. It may work out better for you as it will base calories on HR, not pace, so it will be more accurate for your race walking.
