    +1 definitely a useful feature that I wished would be emulated in some way on my K2. I am awful at remembering to feed and drink myself otherwise!

    Hey Álvaro!

    Thanks for the suggestion - I can definitely see this inevitably saving users from the dreaded "bonk." 

    However, there are no current plans to implement this feature on Karoo 2. I will pass the suggestion along to the team!

    Please keep providing regular suggestion & feedback! We appreciate this.

    Yes, for sure.  Simply having distance- or time-based alerts while in a ride would be good.  That's basically what Garmin (they-who-shall-not-be-named) has.  For me it wouldn't have to be specific to hydration / nutrition.  I can remember what my "5 mile alert" means.

    Yes, please. Like someone else already said even just the ability to set an alarm with a name. Every X minutes or X miles. I have no problem adding it manually as needed.

    Garmin has a lot of really stupid features, but this one is real. I dislike the Garmin implementation — a full screen take over with fairly long auto clear.

    I love Don’s suggestion…

    • Add Alerts, give it a label (‘drink reminder’)
    • Set Trigger Type — time based, (Distance based? why?), Location based
    • Set Repeating - yes, no
    • Set Audible option - pick from set of tones 
    • Set Notification type - Banner, manual/auto clear (maybe version 3)

    Anyone have some examples they would set?

    • Drink / Eat (20 min, repeating)
    • Recalibrate power meter (15 min after start, once)

    Go big! Community Alerts (Waze-like)

    • Caution: Wheel Eating Pothole Ahead
    • Caution: Mean dog, no fence

    I'd suggest we start small... 

    • Label (e.g. ‘drink reminder’)
    • Type — time or distance (always from start of ride)
    • Repeating - yes, no

    And then could build from there:

    • Type - Location (interface for this is much harder than a time/distance since start)
    • Audible option - pick from set of tones (no precedent for this in the interface AFAIK)
    • Notification type - Banner, manual/auto clear (no precedent for this in the interface AFAIK)

    I personally think that the waze alerts will clutter up the map.  And be a distraction/danger to users.

    This is the only real thing I'm missing from my Garmin that I haven't found a work around for at this point.  

    Even starting small (label/type/repeating)  with some kind of audible notification / banner would check this box for me.

    A workaround for now is sideloading something like Automagic or Automate and setting it up there. Obviously not as nice as something integrated tho.

    Somehow, if we don´t use auto-lap function as auto-lap indeed, we can set auto-lap with a distance similar to the timing we want to be reminded to eat or drink. So, when we see our K2 beeping a new lap, we know that is our reminder time to eat or drink.

    Let us define auto-lap each 30kms...if we have an AVG speed of 30km/h, we know when K2 alerts a new lap that is time to eat a snack.

    I rode with a buddy this morning and he had it on his Wahoo. Seems like with the weekly updates, this would be something valuable that could be added.

    Last weekend I bumped into the man with the hammer. Just didn't eat on time. After 100KM I was empty. Maybe could have been prevented with a timer or something like that. I am also definitely in favor of putting this on the sprint. I hope to see this in an update.

    With similar features available on other brands it and the power of the Karoo 2 this should be a no brainier.

    Bumping this feature request.
