I will be writing a full review of the Ozmo app and widget connectivity in the Garmin forum when they are back online after May 16th. This just a quick summary of my experience and opinion, I have been reviewing smart bottles for 6 weeks when finally 2 weeks ago I focused in on the Ozmo solution. The biggest benefit to me was the Garmin integration with the Ozmo app, I use Garmin hardware exclusively for all my activity recording from watches to cycling computer and weigh scale. Adding a smart bottle that could interact with Garmin made sense.
Before buying I decided to try both the iPhone app and Garmin widget on my Fenix 5, download and installation was easy. Setting up the user profile and connecting the app to my Garmin account was easy, I double checked the permissions in Garmin to make sure the app had access to my data in Garmin and yes it did.
Findings to date, no matter what I do, how I sync or how many activities I record in Garmin Connect the Ozmo app does not show any activity recorded or history. The Ozmo app shows no (zero) activities for the last week even though I have worked out every day of the week as usual. The biggest attraction for me with this smart bottle and app was the customized goal setting based on my activity level which does not appear to work at all. At this point instead of giving up I decide to contact Ozmo support I sent a detail report of my issue and provided all the details requested in the automatic email response I received. It has now been 5 days and I have received no response for the support desk.
I don't have do negative opinions or reviews on products just reality and I generally try to exhaust all options when it comes to figuring out all things tech. However in this case with an app that won’t can’t integrate and customize my hydration using my Garmin data, which is what was advertised and tech support with no feedback, I am not convinced I will buy their product. These are just my experiences and opinions, Thanks
