Great app. Does what it says on the label. It is beyond me what Garmin doesn't have this functionality

I’m seeing odd Asia characters in the ConnectIQ section when viewing results. Any ideas? I can’t seem to get the distance to match my machine which is off by about .2 miles in a two mile run. It worked perfectly before the app was updated. With these quirks, it’s still a great buy.

Just got it, so, what can I say, it almost works really great except... There is no menu option to double the factor to account for a cadence sensor counts for 2 steps not 1. The menu options are a little crude, could use some better UI/simpler definitions on the website. It's cheap, so I don't feel ripped off, and it will work, just not for steps, and steps seems to account for the cadence sensor on one watch face, but on a couple others it seems to be taking steps from the internal sensor on my watch, so there is that inconsistency as well.

Thanks for reviewing, there is a divide by 2 in the settings. As a note, I cannot add to the Step Activity total, that is done by the watch firmware and is generated with in the watch. If you need more information, feel free to contact me use the Contact Developer. Thanks Brian.

Hello, I tried trial version for 7 minutes and I think the app it is great. For the moment I observed that I couldn't see the distance and the the speed on my phone report, but it is possible to get some info about the settings about this app after I will pay. I tried to pay with square proceed for this app only (2$), but I don't know why I get this message "amount_money.amount - Expected an integer value". 1. How could I resolve the payment in this situation?What means this message? 2. Could I make the settings only after the payment, or it could be before this?

Thanks for reviewing, the app store version is the full version only time locked. So all options are available to try, Im not sure of the Square issue but there are two other payment options.

Main screen is little too busy for me to use while I’m on the elliptical. I usually stay on the second screen. I wish there was an additional data field. Lots of issues after the last update.

So far I've only used the 7 minute trial period and I'm impressed. I will purchase unlock code if I can nail the stride length setting. It would be helpful if the stride length field indicated what it it's calibrated in. For example my Life Fitness cross trainer is set to a stride length of 56cm. How should I enter that into the field?

Developer Reply
April 20, 2019, fbbbrown

Thanks for reviewing, Every elliptical brand/model reports distance differently, so configuration is necessary.  The default stride length formula will provide distance and speed for other brands but values will differ.  The easiest way to calibrate is to A.) workout for 5 minutes, B.) the adjust Stride Length value until the watch distance matches.

Developer Reply

Thanks for Reviewing! With the new unlock system, only enter your purchase email.  With Connect open, start the app and wait at the start screen until the red bar disappears.  For now, all epic user and only my heart monitor (datafield) still needs the code/email.. Be sure not to include any spaces before or after the code and email.  The Red Bar will disappear with the full version.. First, give your watch a restart and check if the email/code are entered correctly.  Sometimes, email/code do not save the first time after an install, if not enter again and try the app.   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..

Very impressed with this developer and the apps. Had one question regarding the initial setup and, lo and behold, the developer responded almost immediately. Don't see that happen all to often. Pretty much only using the Elliptical app but if all of them works as well as it does, you can't go wrong. Developer keeps working to improve and update the apps as well. Nice. I bought the whole app package and the price is worth every dollar and then some.

Thanks for your work. I use your app with Garmin Fenix ​​5. I can use the built-in accelerometer, but I want to try the bicycle pedal frequency sensor. I have a question. Where to mount the sensor? On the handle or pedal or eccentric?

Developer Reply
February 9, 2019, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review, attach the cadence sensor to a rotating part of elliptical (360 degrees). For example, Consider the crank arm of a bicycle where the bike cadence would be attached and how ithe cadence sensor would rotate.

DazRox
February 8, 2019 | Version 2.10

Works reasonably well but home screen is cluttered. Biggest disappoint however is that it does not allow chest strap to be source of heart rate data. Only from optical sensor on the watch.

Developer Reply
February 9, 2019, fbbbrown

Dazrox, thanks for writing, but the Elliptical app is designed for the Chest HRM with cadence. It is likely your battery needs replaced. The main screen is based on the popular datafield DozenRun/DozenCycle, I designed other pages with larger fonts. Please update this review when your HRM works. If you have any questions contact me directly.

désolé de votre problème, il est préférable de me contacter par email pour une question comme ces deux. Tout d’abord, la distance principale dans connect ne peut pas être modifiée par les développeurs IQ, mais j’indique la distance dans la section Statistiques IQ. deuxièmement, pour obtenir une cadence, la montre doit bouger pour générer la cadence ou utiliser un capteur de cadence pour la poitrine ou le vélo. Si vous avez d'autres questions, consultez ma page FAQ, je réponds à vos deux questions de manière très détaillée. ou contactez-moi en utilisant mes liens e-mail. .... sorry your having an issue, it is best to contact me through email for question as these two. first the main distance in connect cannot be edited by IQ developers bit i do provide distance in the IQ Stats section. second, to get a cadence the watch must move to generate cadence or use a chest hrm or bike cadence sensor. if you have further questions, check out my FAQ page, i address both of your question in great detail. or contact me using my Email links.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
