SmartCycle

Description

Why spend time configuring and switching between multiple data screens when you can SmartCycle? </p><p></p><p>SmartCycle intelligently displays the right info at the right time. When riding SmartCycle helps you focus on key real-time stats; when stopped SmartCycle shows you summary stats. No configuration is required!</p><p></p><p>On Edge devices Smartcycle can be paired with another data field (or more on some devices). When riding SmartCycle shows speed, cadence, power, heart rate with HR zones chart, over / under average speed gauge, compass heading, battery gauge, and time of day. When stopped, SmartCycle shows current time, distance, average speed, total ascent, average cadence, average power in watts, HR zones chart, calories burned, and Training Effect. No configuration is required because SmartCycle dynamically determines if you are using heart rate, cadence, and power sensors.

What’s New

This is the second version of SmartCycle. Highlights of this version: time of day clock is now shown on the main screen, much improved multi-field support for larger devices like the Edge series, improved battery gauge, improved average speed gauge on round devices, support for black backgrounds, and HR zones chart should match Garmin's. See detailed release notes below.</p><p></p><p>SmartCycle is a data field, not an app or widget. You need to configure a screen in the Cycling activity with one data field in it (larger devices can have more than one data field), and add SmartCycle from the list of Connect IQ data fields. See "Customizing the data screens" in your manual or the online manual for your device to see how to do this.</p>

Absolutely perfect for me. While cycling only the most important info (time, speed, distance, heart rate) so I keep my eyes on the road :), and as soon as I stop automatically all other info.

Felipe Arzayus
August 20, 2020 | Version 2.3.0

Love it. Simple to use and looks great on my Edge 130+. Only pet peeve is that the compass is all over the place but pointing North, I keep getting distracted (or challenged?) by it, trying to figure out where true North is...

Anders Dahlgren

No setting to display distance while riding.

Simple, effective and clear. Nice app but the compass heading is not effective at all on edge 530.

It is seems to me like it is impossible to create Training effect field in layout. Maybe Edge 830 doesnt support that option. Everything else works just fine. Fiver from me.

It seems that the Edge 830 does support TE, see https://www8.garmin.com/manuals/webhelp/edge830/EN-US/GUID-7275629E-743A-4658-A284-C84F42A66AE5.html TE should be in the lower right of the "stopped" summary stats screen. Email me if you continue to have issues.

Cycling is my passion and I'm out in the open almost every day and SmartCycle is the only data field I need to have all the info nicely on 2 screens. Very well laid out. Kudos to the developer. Recommended.

Thanks so much for your kind review! I never understood why I had to switch screens to see summary info, why not just show it when you are stopped? I'm glad you agree!

one of the most beautiful apps, the only lack of lap time

Developer Reply

I'm happy you like SmartCycle! I don't know where I could display lap time on the SmartCycle screen. Personally I put lap time on a separate screen.

I use SmartCycle on my forerunner 945 and like it very much. In the review I read about a request for displaying the slope and the answer that there is no more space left. I've a simple idea: A gauge like the comparison with average speed at the lower part. This would be beautful.

Good idea, I'll have to think about it! One of the issues is that it has to work on multiple form factors, eg round, rectangular, etc. Glad you are enjoying SmartCycle!

Excited to give this a shot! I found this app while trying to find a way to connect a power meter to a vivoactive 3. Question: I have a vivoactive 3 and am looking into buying a stages gen 3 power meter. It’s Bluetooth 4.0 and ant + . Will smart cycle be able to pick up the power meter? Do I have to worry about any accuracy issues? Thanks for taking the time to make the app and answer my question :)

Developer Reply
September 22, 2019, wpwoodjr

Hi, I'm sorry to say that from my reading the vivoactive 3 doesn't support power meters, so SmartCycle won't be able to see it either.

Robin Perkins

Want to use it on my Edge 1030. Not sure how to set it up, how many data fields is recommended? Do you put Smart Cycle on just one of the data fields? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Developer Reply
June 25, 2019, wpwoodjr

Hi Robin, you have a lot of flexibility in configuring the field layout for SmartCycle on the Edge 1030. One, two, and three field layouts work well, but any of the "b" layouts work even better if you put SmartCycle in one of the large fields. For instance with the "4 Fields B" layout you could have two smaller fields up top, SmartCycle in the middle, and a map in the bottom field. Good luck!

Works great for spinning VA HR. Two questions, what is the center colored vertical bar representative of? Second, is it possible to incorporate an estimated power meter?

Developer Reply
January 23, 2018, wpwoodjr

The center colored vertical bar shows battery life. It turns yellow at 25% and red at 15%. SmartCycle will display power if there is an Ant+ power sensor, but does not estimate power.

Great app, but the compass arrow is not very accurate, it is a good feature, but as it is now it is basically useless.

Developer Reply

Thanks for trying SmartCycle! I too have noticed that sometimes the compass is accurate, and sometimes it jumps around and is not accurate. I will need to look into this further. If you could please email me your device type, that may help. Click on "Contact Developer" to email me.

Nice but user defined fields is a must. There is not a single serious competitor that has any interest in MPH during a race.

Interesting... I'm not a racer. What fields do you like to see during a race?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
