I use with my Forerunner 230 outdoors on my walk days and it works great, is there an app for use on a treadmill when walking indoors?

You can try my Indoor Walk:
19 August 2018 | Version 0.25
Great at tracking my walk on my forerunner 230. But 2 our of 5 times I start it , my device crashes and looses all data recorded that day, doesn’t happen with other apps or when I start other workouts. Pretty frustrating. . Would be nice to have that checked out.

For things like this, please use "contact developer" so I can ask things like firmware version and ask other questions. For example, are the other apps native to the watch?
Have you tried my Hike app? It also records walking.and if there's no problem with it, would help me narrow down the problem.

Installed and ran like a charm on Forerunner 235. Easy to figure out use. Alternate stats screens very useful too. Love this app!
29 May 2018 | Version 0.25
When you save the activity the watch shuts down and your steps, distance and calories are erased. So annoying.

Please use contact developer (on the right side of the page) for things like this, and include which watch, and what firmware you are running.

Can't get it to work on forerunner 235. Says on connect app it's installed but not showing anywhere on watch.

Please use "Contact Developer" for things like this. On the 23x, CIQ apps aren't shown the same way as native apps like "Run". On the same menu as you see "run", etc, there's an item called "apps", and your CIQ apps are in a menu under that.

it is not working on garmin 1000 . you should check it.

What is happening? Please use "Contact Developer" and let me know.

Very good. FR235

Otherwise it works fine and its most useful. But reacently I have had the same problem as "Indrajeet" with my FR230. But Thanks anyway I needed that app. ;)
25 December 2017 | Version 0.21.1
This has been my most used app since I bought FR235. Recently there is problem noticed. When I save activity, it shows summary and then watch restarts and it opens with native Run activity. If I save, it saves my walk as native running activity but no steps are recorded. If I discard running, nothing is saved neither walk nor steps.
25 December 2017 | Version 0.21.1
He tenido que desinstalarla porque cada vez que terminaba una caminata al darle a guardar, el reloj se reiniciaba y encima perdía todos los pasos hechos hasta ese momento. Un desastre.
Pd: en forerunner 235

try doing a hard boot of your watch. Hold the light button for 15-20 seconds until the watch turns itself off, then turn it back on Simple Walk hasn't changed in a while, so I suspect there is something with the firmware. What version are you running on your watch?
03 December 2017 | Version 0.21.1
I tried this today in my Fenix3, but it's seem the screen is hangout after start, nothing update even the clock, although GPS is already and I'm still moving. I recognize if I pause current activity then start back again then the information is updated.
When I finished, I save the activity, all display as normal, then I think maybe something goes wrong with Fenix3. Please give a check.
03 December 2017, jim_m_58
It sounds like something with your watch. Maybe the FW version?
Please use 'Contact Developer and supply the information there, and that way I can ask quests.
One thing to try is restarting the watch - hold the light button until it turns off and the turn it back on.
16 November 2017 | Version 0.21.1
Thank you! Great addition to my VA3.
21 October 2017 | Version 0.21.1
Just want to know, when I start the app, my Garmin Tactix Bravo reboot every time.
When it work, every time it shows a lap it show (on the watch) LAP 0.
21 October 2017, jim_m_58
Please use contact developer, and include things like the firmware version of your watch.
Have you tried powering off the watch and back on before running the app? Hold the light button until the watch turns itself off (about 15 seconds)
19 September 2017 | Version 0.21.1
Needs to be updated to work with the vivoactive 3. Same with hike 2.
20 September 2017, jim_m_58
There is a bug in the 2.40 Firmware which impacts many apps. Once new FW is available, both Simple Walk and Hike2 should work fine. See: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-bug-reports/1253279-vivoactive-3-onback-not-implemented-on-the-device
26 August 2017 | Version 0.20
Since you will ask, I'm using a Garmin Fenix 3, with latest firmware.
What is absolutely mind boggling about this app is that it doesn't have the one and only feature that most people want it for: STEPS for the activity! Yes, it gives you a total for the day, and you can try and remember what you started with and subtract, etc., but it doesn't provide the most SIMPLE of data fields: STEPS DURING ACTIVITY!! Wtf?
But even if it did, it crashes constantly, so I highly recommend against it.
26 August 2017, jim_m_58
Seems you didn't really look! In addition to daily steps on the first screen there are also "steps (ACT)" which are your steps during the activity recording. As far as one of the 6 large configurable datafields, one of the options there is "Activity Steps". With the crashes, if you provide info on when it happens (such as "when I try to save the activity it crashes) I can look into it.

Really great App
30 July 2017 | Version 0.20
At first I thought it was a good app. Then little things started showing up. The font is too small to read . If you are interested in steps or miles you have to wait till it shows up again. The BIGGEST downfall is sometimes it will clear your steps off your Garmin after a long walk. It is maddening to have 20,000 steps and then have your garmin show 0 and no way to get them back ! This is no longer my app after doing this three times.
31 July 2017, jim_m_58
As far as seeing tests, have you looked that the 6 configurable data fields spread across three pages?
As far as losing your steps, the watch crashed, and to look into that I need to know things like the version of the app (shown on the screens), watch you are using and what firmware you are running. You can provide that info with "Contact Developer". It could be as simple as you having updated the app on the watch itself in a while.

This is exactly what I need. Number of steps at the bottom.
Need to test it more thoroughly, but i am very happy for the moment.
13 July 2017 | Version 0.19a
Worked perfectly the first time but crashed my watch the second time I used it.
14 July 2017, jim_m_58
Please use 'Contact Developer" on the right side of the screen and tell me things like which watch, what FW version is on your watch, etc. If there's a bug, I need this info to look into it. If by crash, you mean you saw "IQ!", there's also a file you can send me that will help.
27 June 2017 | Version 0.19a
Works flawlessly ! Very good app for walkers like me :)
07 June 2017 | Version 0.19
I have a FR 235.
Love this app, I use it for my lunch time walks and my slow runs (days where I want to jog a little but an actual run ain't happening). One thing I'm not super fond of is the bottom line rotating from calories burned to steps/goal to %steps. That's mostly me being super type A and wanting to control what I see, though.
30 June 2017, jim_m_58
With app settings, you can configure what you see on the bottom line of the first screen. Nothing, a single thing, or any number of options that rotate every minute. If you have things you want to see all the time, there are three data pages with two customizable data fields on each that again, can be configured using app settings. Here's the bacsics on using app settings: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-showcase/115055-how-to-app-settings
28 May 2017 | Version 0.19
Ripper app and the one I use most. Some fonts a little small for sure. And for some reason elevation is not metric like everything else.
24 April 2017 | Version 0.19
I love this app since the 230 doesn't have walking built it. Could you make the fonts other than the clock bigger? They are just too hard to read. Spread them out, add a screen, something.
13 April 2017 | Version 0.19
I've got the 735XT and it drove me crazy that there is no easy way to track an outdoor walk - without calling it a run and then changing it online or via the app. This app saves that extra step, which is really great since I cross-report over to Endomondo.
19 February 2017 | Version 0.18
I have a Forerunner 235 and I find the font way too small, I can't see how many km's I have walked. Other than that, I love it, use it every day when walking my dogs.
