What’s New

2020-10-11: Bug in MovingTime on Resume(Later). Now MovingTime is set when Application is started again.</p><p>2020-10-01: Added Moving Time in Green on Top field. Minimal Speed Time can be changed via Settings. Default = 1 kmh. (Moving Time is usually calculated after an activity is loaded UP via Garmin Connect with their algorithm. To show it on the watch, I had to determine it myself.</p><p>2020-04-10: when Vertical speed is more than 1000 or less than -1000, show it in Purple and divided by 10; For better readability.</p>

Very well done, useful and handly when you need all the info on a single screen. Now it's my default data field for all my mountain activities. Just a suggestion, It Will be perfect with the top field showing both the elapsed and the "in movement" time.

The data field is perfect for vertical skiing where vertical speed is the most valuable meassure for physical load next to HR. The correlation with HR is very strong. In addition to vertical speed and HR you got all necessary values in one screen. The graph with vertical speed is nice in combination with the other parameters. The first version crashed some times, but the current version is very stable.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
