Works great on my vivoactive3 with a lot of useful info.
However it consumes a lot of battery. What I usually see:
- ~1% per h in watch mode (with activity tracking on),
- ~10% per h in the native run mode (GPS),
- ~20% per h with this app
(Is it possible that some screen consumes more than others ? asking because I spent a lot of time using the compass or the track)
Would love to have a ascension rate (m/min).
Thanks for this good app.

The compass, the screens with graphs, and the "chart" screen do more when updatings. You may want to go back to something like the main screen when you're not looking at one of those screens.

A greet app. But how to quit/exit app on vivoactive 3?
3 December 2017, jim_m_58
On a va3, "back" is a right swipe. That will exit the app before you are recoding of after you've saved/discarded the hike. while recording, it's also how you mark waypoints.

Love the functionality, but it eats the watch’s battery life. A 4 hour hike took up 90% of the battery charge.
29 November 2017, jim_m_58
what watch? I get a min of about 8hrs on vivoactives, and more on a Fenix. It should be very similar to something like the native running app in battery usage.
6 October 2017 | Version 2.11.1
Works great on my Vivoactive 3. Keep up the great work.
13 August 2017 | Version 0.10.1
Good app. Works well when hiking. Like being able to set waypoints and also see track.
14 July 2017 | Version 2.09.1
Hike 2 is a nice app! I use it on my Fenix 5X whenever i hike!
Please enable it to display map just like what Garmin's build-in hike app does, at least.
14 July 2017, jim_m_58
I would if I could! CIQ apps can't access the actual maps on the f5x or Edge, Oregon, or Rino. I'd love to add this to the app if I could.

Not working on Vivoactice HR - just waiting on GPs

Make sure you can get a GPS fix with something like the native run app. If not, try turning your device off and back on. Also, make sure you are in a location outside, as if you are in a building or shelter, it may cause problems with GPS. If you've not used GPS in a while, it can take 5+ minutes to get a fix.
2 July 2017 | Version 2.08b
always waiting for GPS signal
10 July 2017, jim_m_58
See the response above. It's something with your watch or your location and not Hike2 itself. Use contact developer on the right if you want additional help.

salve grande app. vorrei solo sapere come si può mettere in pausa durante l'attività mi sarebbe molto utile
14 March 2017 | Version 2.05a
Definitely the best hiking app I have come across. The latest version is just amazing!
Thanks so much!!!
6 February 2017 | Version 2.05a
Tried a few for hiking / walking this is by far the best I can tune in what i want or drop the othets. The breadcrumb is very important for hiking or biking as we are off the beaten path. I wish for a complete set of instructions as going to the forum is getting it in pieces. I thank the developer for a very useful app for my vivoactive HR
23 January 2017 | Version 2.03.3
Most useful app I have on my watch. It's very accurate. Easy to use. Good information tracking.
19 January 2017 | Version 2.03.3
Great app. Works flawlessly on VA/HR. Thanks for all the work.
16 December 2016 | Version 2.03.3
Stuck on the "Waiting for GPS" screen. There seems to be a problem with accessing the GPS. VAHR v3.30 (GPS v3.00)
18 December 2016, jim_m_58
You likely can't get GPS in a standard app from that location, as I'm just telling the firmware to start GPS. Turning the watch off and both on should resolve both or change your location a bit.
24 November 2016 | Version 2.03.3
I can't enter the menu. How do I do that? I have a Forerunner 735XT
24 November 2016, jim_m_58
On a 735XT (and the 230 and 235), menu is a long press of the up button.
23 November 2016 | Version 2.03.3
I like it and it works great. Just wat's needed for a longer walk. Just I don't know how to upload a set of waypoints (turning points on a planned walk). Is there any detailed description (or I'm blind?)?
An enhancement would be to integrate with uploaded tracks.
21 November 2016 | Version 2.03.3
Used this application in the lakes in the UK. Provides valuable and relevant information while out in the hills. Excellent app well done don't know where you find the tme
9 November 2016 | Version 2.03.3
This is a fantastic app! Would be near-perfect it it were possible to display coordinates in BNG format - any chance of adding that?
7 November 2016 | Version 2.03.3
It's great on my VAHR. However, despite what the compatibility list says, it does not show up on my Fenix 3 IQ Market, so I couldn't install it there. Perhaps instead of "Fenix chronos" it should say "Fenix 3" and "Fenix 3 HR", who knows...
7 November 2016, jim_m_58
The fenix chronos (which is CIQ 2.x) is the only one in the fenix family that's supported. With the f3 and f3-hr (CIQ 1.3) there's not enough memory on them.
The list of compatible devices is correct. Hike2 is only for CIQ 2.x devices.
19 October 2016 | Version 2.03.2
Very powerful app,I like the altitude chart especially, and all chart can show last hiking's history data! cool
17 October 2016 | Version 2.03.2
Fantastic on VA HR.
29 September 2016 | Version 2.02
App runs great on my VivoActive HR. Very easy to use and informative. My ONLY complaint is the font is way to small, to the point that without my reading glasses the apps almost not usable for me. Would be great if the number of screen could be configured and the fonts made about the size of the built in Garmin apps.
23 September 2016 | Version 2.02
Works great as a walk activity replacement! :)
Nicely done Jim!
20 September 2016 | Version 2.02
It works great!
20 August 2016 | Version 2.01
Très belle application, sa dernière mise à jour la rend encore plus complète et plus lisible.
Je n'ai pas encore testé la dernière version mais sur Vivoactive HR le rythme cardiaque est trop tronqué encode "Walk".
Pour une future mise à jour il serait bien d'avoir sur la boussole la direction du point de départ en plus du nord car la trace manque lisibilité quand on est à proximité du départ.
20 August 2016, jim_m_58
With version 2.01, before you press "start" you can press "menu" (actually a long press of "start") and get a menu where you can switch between walk and hike, as well as change the background between black and white.
In "translate", I see that the heart rate is "truncated". If you mean too small, there's also a Heart Rate screen in 2.01, with current, average and max HRs, as well as a graph of the firmware's 4-hr history..
