Gerade gekauft aber weder Code noch irgendeine Spur von der App. Wenn ich es runterlade zeigt er wird nach Gerätesyncronisierung gemacht. Garmin Connect und auch Handy Android mehrmals neu gestartet. Nichts. Leider finde ich kein Portal wo ich antworten auf deutsch finde. Deshalb nur 1 Sterne

Used this app several times. In use, it is fantastic and provides everything one could want for data. Sadly post use is less impressive. Each time I have used the app on my Fenix 5, the data does not sync and merely provides the data the Garmin app provides. There is no speed, pace, distance etc loaded to my results. (If this can be fixed, I will change my review to 5 stars).

lo siento, está decepcionado, pero la aplicación Connect no acepta la velocidad y la distancia que le brindo a Connect. Proporciono la distancia en la sección de estadísticas de IQ. Si no está viendo la velocidad o la distancia en el reloj, por favor lea mi cómo hacerlo. es probable que su brazo no se mueva lo suficiente como para crear un valor. ....... sorry you're disappointed, but the Connect app does not accept the speed and distance i provide to Connect.

thanks for the review but it is better to as for support using the contact developer email links. the solution is 1.)be sure not to include any spaces before or after the code. 2.)If you still have an issue, i have been getting feedback that users are needing to uninstall, restart the watch, reinstall the app due to the app may not being fully installed by the Connect Phone App.

Bonjour , La distance et la vitesse ne fonctionne pas ? 0.00 km ? 0 K/H ?

Thanks for the review, How the elliptical app generates speed and distance is based on cadence.  With that in mind, cadence comes from four sources(from least to most accurate): all watches (basic accelerometer), IQ 2.0 watches (high frequency accelerometer), HRM (with cadence) or the bike cadence sensor.  If your using watch only (IQ 2.x watch) without HRM or Bike Cadence, use the High Frequency Accelerometer Function. This greatly increase accuracy of the watch, this setting must be set before starting the activity.   If your using watch only improve accuracy by keeping your hand on the moving arm and use the loose grip method.  Hold the elliptical arm with your watch hand ‘loosely’. This allows your watch to have more sudden movement.

An outstanding app! Great functionality and user-friendliness. The developer clearly put a lot of thought about to best enhance Garmin’s fitness tracking. Not only that, but he answered me quickly and personally when I had a question about the set-up. If you use ellipticals, BUY THIS APP.

Amazing app, it works perfect after last update. You only need to save your code to use it every time you update the app, this is because of garmin, not the app. I use it with a garmin cadence sensor sticked in my elliptical. You only need to measure first time and make a division and its easy to obtain perfect readings very close to the elliptical computer. In my case in 5km less than 100meters of difference. The communication with the developer its fluent. Great for me. Thanks.

Love it but I didnt realize that my current app is not the latest version and just noticed when I tried to write a review and it told me: "you can only write a review if you have the most recent app". However upgrading the app does not means that I will need to pay again, right?

Thanks for the review. I’m working with garmin to get the devices listed. As of now, it is a software switch at the garmin servers and They only migrated 1/2 of my apps :(.

11 June 2018 | Version 2.4.0

I started with this app before Garmin created one. Then I switched to the Garmin version. After a few shuffles on the elliptical I decided the Fb3 version is superior and switched back. I am using a Garmin HRM strap. That makes a HUGE difference. If you do not have one and want reasonably good tracking you need to get it. That or use one of the other secondary tracking options. Last but not least, and there is nothing the developer can do about it, the physical process for registering your license code (after you pay the 99 cents) is incredibly unintuitive!

I bought the app pakage for my finex 5 which includes most of your develop one, I been using the built in app before and I did like it but I was demanding more date such as distance, yet I have missed some other options from the built-in one such the privilege to have an interval training or load the traning and work out from garmin connect to your app and the option to On/Off the HR zone alarm which I found it annoying while I'm in high intensity training in this app... it will be a great addon if you could duplicate some of the necessary options from the built in app to this one...

It works pretty well, but I noticed that my mileage is always zero in the quick summary provided by Garmin for my workout. However, if I drill down into the workout details, I see the distance. I almost have the app dialed in with my Norditrac Freestrider as the mileage is pretty close. Is there something that I may have set up wrong?

Developer Reply
4 May 2018, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review. At this time Garmin is aware of this issuse that the Connect App does not allows overriding the main distance in the quick summary. I do provide distance in the IQ data section twice: 1.) watch native units 2.) in meters to override Garmin main distance field. Hopefully they will fix soon!

I love that I have the option of using my elliptical and being able to track it. However, I recently purchased a new Elliptical and the stride is not as long but has more resistance so you heart rate stays up but my Garmin is only sensing about 1/5th of my steps and I've also lost my distance. Is there any way to program a stride length? I'm losing about 2 miles each morning :-( I use a Vivoactive

Developer Reply
20 April 2018, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review. And Yes you can adjust the stride length at the watch, phone or pc. I describe how to do the adjustment here http://www.fbbbrown.com/garmin-connect-iq/help_faq/

I was excited to get the app. I installed the app, bought the license code and tried it out. It worked for a minute and then my watch started locking up. It would bump to a different screen and lock up. I had to keep shutting it of and turning it back on to get my watch to work. I uninstalled everything and my watch still locks up. This is driving me nuts.

Tony, Sorry your having a problem. The app shouldn’t behave like that. Try uninstall, restart the watch and reinstall. If you still have a problem contact me directly.
