Simple Walk

Description

This may look like a watchface, but it's not. It's an app to record outdoor walks! This was done with a main screen that looks like a watchface, where you still want to have a "watchface" visible, yet do recording.</p><p>(if you want a more robust app for walking, see Hike or Hike2, but Simple Walk does much more than a native walking app!)</p><p></p><p>Support Thread: https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/f/showcase/3882/support-thread-for-simple-walk</p>

What’s New

0.24 - Oregon and Rino support</p><p>0.25 - Edge 520 Plus support</p><p>0.26 - Fenix Plus device support

Really loved using this app for a year and now it’s suddenly crashing every single time I try to use it. Disappointed because it was perfect for logging my walks on rest days.

The app itself hasn't changed in over a year, so it's something do with the device/FW you have. For things like this, use "contact developer" so that I have that info.

Great app. Got it at the suggestion of being able to track a walk on 735 without selecting hike and manually changing. Perfect for logging walks. Only annoying thing is inability to auto pause. As it's an app and not data field, I can't change on activity like I do with others

Just what I want. But presently unusable on my FR235. Reboots on install and start.

Have you tried rebooting the watch before using it? Keep pressing the upper left button until the watch turns off and then turn it back on.

Would be great if I could choose by myself the activity name instead of "SimWalk".

That's the name of the app and is compiled into it. There's no way to change it.

This app sucks. Don't install it! I had 7000 steps for the day and then tried to do a walk using the app. At the end of my walk I pressed stop and my watch rebooted itself and set my steps back to 2300 steps!

Use Contact developer and provide details such as the watch type and firmware version.

With my Garmin 630, steps were not recorded .... after the activity restarted, something was wrong

Please use contact developer at the right, and if you want to get a response, include your email address. Are you saying the watch crashed?

Downloaded the app and proceeded to walk. Watch froze up on the boot screen and would not respond. After about 10 minutes, my watch rebooted and saved the walk as a run. You're better off doing "Other" and changing it to a walk activity from the app.

What device do you have and what firmware? This sounds like a problem with the watch. Please use "contact developer" with the info.

I am very impressed. I am using the website CityStrides to track which streets I run or WALK. CS only pulls from Strava, MapMyFitness, and Runkeeper. CS only uses data from runs, walks and hikes. Since the FR235 does not have a walk activity, I had to jump through a few hoops to have my data accurate. With Simple Walk, I do not have to do any post activity editing (change "other" to "walk" and worry that CS would miss the update), and my friends see my walks as runs, not walks. This would happen on Strava. I'd have likes before I could even edit the activity. How embarrassing. Now my activity data is accurate right at the download! Sweet. *** I do seem to be having one problem though. Number of laps does not seem to accumulate on the auto lap setting. I have it set to "auto lap 1 mile or km", and "Use device setting", but with each lap chime my lap count is always zero. All settings are default. I have a picture if you would like to see it. Oh, what's the box with the [!] mean? I see in the pic on the app page. I saw that once and could not figure it out. Well that's it. Thank you for a great introduction to apps. I will be trying Hike in the future. Cheers, Eric
