How the hell can I get this app started on my Forerunner 645 Music? When connecting the watch to the PC it shows that the app is on the watch. But it cannot be found on the watch at all or even started...

It is a data field. So you have to add it to an app.

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.
