Thanks for the review. I’m working with garmin to get the devices listed. As of now, it is a software switch at the garmin servers and They only migrated 1/2 of my apps :(.

I started with this app before Garmin created one. Then I switched to the Garmin version. After a few shuffles on the elliptical I decided the Fb3 version is superior and switched back. I am using a Garmin HRM strap. That makes a HUGE difference. If you do not have one and want reasonably good tracking you need to get it. That or use one of the other secondary tracking options. Last but not least, and there is nothing the developer can do about it, the physical process for registering your license code (after you pay the 99 cents) is incredibly unintuitive!

May 4, 2018 | Version 2.4.0

I bought the app pakage for my finex 5 which includes most of your develop one, I been using the built in app before and I did like it but I was demanding more date such as distance, yet I have missed some other options from the built-in one such the privilege to have an interval training or load the traning and work out from garmin connect to your app and the option to On/Off the HR zone alarm which I found it annoying while I'm in high intensity training in this app... it will be a great addon if you could duplicate some of the necessary options from the built in app to this one... Thanks

It works pretty well, but I noticed that my mileage is always zero in the quick summary provided by Garmin for my workout. However, if I drill down into the workout details, I see the distance. I almost have the app dialed in with my Norditrac Freestrider as the mileage is pretty close. Is there something that I may have set up wrong?

Developer Reply
May 4, 2018, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review. At this time Garmin is aware of this issuse that the Connect App does not allows overriding the main distance in the quick summary. I do provide distance in the IQ data section twice: 1.) watch native units 2.) in meters to override Garmin main distance field. Hopefully they will fix soon!

I love that I have the option of using my elliptical and being able to track it. However, I recently purchased a new Elliptical and the stride is not as long but has more resistance so you heart rate stays up but my Garmin is only sensing about 1/5th of my steps and I've also lost my distance. Is there any way to program a stride length? I'm losing about 2 miles each morning :-( I use a Vivoactive

Developer Reply
April 20, 2018, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review. And Yes you can adjust the stride length at the watch, phone or pc. I describe how to do the adjustment here

Thanks for the review. I do provide distance in the IQ stats. At this time. Not much I can do with connect and the distance. Check out my FAQ i discuss why the elliptical main distance is ignored.

I was excited to get the app. I installed the app, bought the license code and tried it out. It worked for a minute and then my watch started locking up. It would bump to a different screen and lock up. I had to keep shutting it of and turning it back on to get my watch to work. I uninstalled everything and my watch still locks up. This is driving me nuts.

Tony, Sorry your having a problem. The app shouldn’t behave like that. Try uninstall, restart the watch and reinstall. If you still have a problem contact me directly.

the connection to an external hr monitor has become quite patchy of late.never used to happen as often.

Developer Reply
April 8, 2018, fbbbrown

Sorry your having a problem, this is likely a watch issue or a HRM. However there are a few things to help. A new battery corrects most problems, before the watch says "low battery" communications can be intermittent. Also removing the HRM device from the watch and re-pairing to the watch again.

Great app (I bought all licenses, can't wait for Run+ to be more mature and out of BETA). Just one quick question. Both Elliptical and Run+ app were measuring distance in the app. But when syncing with Garmin Connect, the distance was shown as 0.00 (from the summary screen with 3 bubbles, in middle bubble "distance" showed 0.00). Is this usual?

Developer Reply
March 30, 2018, fbbbrown

thanks for the review, the Run+is in a test phase and I will be adding some more features and corrections soon. as for the main distance, as of now this is a limitation of the Garmin SDK, I discuss this further in my FAQ.

Not the best, the distance on the app is about 60% of what the elliptical shows, but the app doesn't recorded this distance in your daily total. Rpm is about 75% accurate. Calories burn seems accurate while wearing the heart rate monitor. Bottom line this wouldn't be a deal breaker for a free app, but to pay for it and it still not be accurate is a little much.

Developer Reply
February 23, 2018, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review but all that you claim can be adjusted to match your elliptical. The default values will give close results but each brand and model is different and calbration is required. You can achieve near perfect results use with a chest hrm-run or bike cadence sensor. As for the distance displayed in Connect, this is a limitation of the current SDK that garmin provides, however I’m going IQ Summit to personally ask the Garmin Connect developers to use their SDK as they developed. All this information is provide on my help/faq page. ....

I only gave 3 stars because of the other reviews. I have the vivoactve but is it correct that it will not register the activities or calories burned on my watch?

Developer Reply
February 14, 2018, fbbbrown

Thanks for the review Michelle. The Garmin calorie calculation is based on Heart Rate. Using the watch without a heart rate, the calorie value will be zero. Either, 1.) Use a chest HRM-RUN .... or 2.) Use a watch that has optical heart rate. Hope that Helps.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
