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/showthread.php?362244-Support-Thread-for-Simple-Walk&p=907743#post907743</p>

Way too glitchy nowadays. It keeps turning my watch off right before I go to save the walk. Like today I did a 42 minute walk 2.3 miles. The app shut my watch down and when it restarted it said I had only done 214 steps that day (instead of around 5000 after the walk) and my walk was shortened to 38 minutes and 2 miles. Uninstalled the app because this happens after every walk now, not just rarely....

The app itself hasn't changed in a long time, so this sound like something with your watch - possibly a new FW update. For things like this, please mention the watch you have and it's current FW version. "Contact Developer" on the right is the best way to do that

Allows me to track walks on my FR235, however fairly regularly the watch will restart at the point of saving the walk, losing all un-synced steps and turning the walk back into a running activity. Rather frustrating, but it will suffice until I can upgrade my watch to one with dedicated walk tracking.

There has been a gremlin on the 235 for some time, with no trace of why, but the watch crashes unexpectly. Why you can try is my Hike app, https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/39d3b5e8-67db-4517-93a8-5ec485269635 As it uses less memory and that may avild the crash (you can have it record a walk instead of a hike). Once you see this crash, you want to hold the light button until the watch turns itself off then turn it back on - that's a full reboot of the watch.

Worked great for a week. Started this morning, and when waiting for GPS signal the watch restarted. Tried 5 times - same thing happened. Uninstalled app from mobile then reinstalled. Same thing happening. When searching for GPS the watch just restarts with the "Garmin screen".

Nothing has changed in the app since last April, and this seems to only be on the 235 device. Likely something in the 235 FW.

Great App. On the Forerunner 235 without any opportunity to add other workouts, being able to utilise the IQ app and register a Walk is fantastic.

I just downloaded this to my 735 can anyone tell me where to find it to use?

As you move through the activities on the watch (run, bike, etc), you'll see "IQ Apps'. Select that and you'll see 'inwalk'.

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: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/eacc349c-94b9-4c3c-a92b-f3816e4fb3ad

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!

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.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
