Still suck the battery like whore ! Good app bad execution !tactix 7 pro

It’s great and super helpful. Coming from an Apple Watch I loved their automatic hand washing feature.I submitted feedback, so I ask have the feature mute during a workout. I don’t need to wash my hands in the middle of a workout. That’s very annoying.

It definitively increased the number of times I wash my hands.

This has got to be the dumbest thing ever. Why would anyone need this? If you can't figure out his to wash your hands and when, then you really shouldn't be out in your own.

It works I guess. Like others have said though it would make more sense if it kicked in while washing hands like other devices do.

Just a counter... Dont understand notification about background running as it does not use any single sensor from watches. I would expect automatic start counter when you start washing hands...

Fun thing to have on the watch however it would have been nicer to see you make use of the sensors in the watch to drive the process.

Just a timer - make it work like Apple Watch

Ojalá se pudiera configurar y ajustar cada 30 minutos

This app: Wash your hands...but before you do contaminate your phone. Why not add gesture sensing???

Please please please make this available for vivoactive 3! Would also prefer to make the meal times customisable.

It’s a great widget I was waiting for. It will be helpful if the watch vibrate when charging the step as well as have the screen lighting ON so I can see easier. When using this I have to literally look at my watch all the time for the next step.

Pretty lame. I was hoping for something like the Apple watch has. This widget is nothing more than two countdown timers: a two hour timer for washing interval and a thirty second timer for washing Iength. It fails to use the sensors to determine if any handwashing is actually occurring.

Notifications don't work! Like in Hydration widget. When the f..k are you going to fix it???

Works well, no issues so far. Accounts for sleep time so it doesn't disturb you and is a useful reminder to make sure you wash your hands.

Ed Butler

There are five pre set intervals with no customization! 30min, 1,2,3 hours and a pre set meal time. I don’t eat at your specific meal times, can you make meal times adjustable please! Love the reminders they just need to be more customizable by the user.
