I wrote a review earlier asking for more timers, but I got an answer and I will change my review. It works perfectly, just how it says. Thanks.

Great app! One question: every time I stretch, it records an activity and pushes it to Strava even though I have the option for recording turned OFF. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hi Patrick, thanks :) Did you deactivated "Recording" inside of the app or via Garmin Connect Mobile? Both *should* work and it definitely should not create an activity! Not on Garmin, nor on Strava. Maybe it´s a bug on your device Firmware (this sometimes happens, like GPS is recorded, but declined in this app). Which device you are using?

Good app but it is not clear for me how to stop and record the activity with forerunner 645.

Developer Reply
February 26, 2019, HerrRiebmann

Hi Simona, just press the start/stop-button on the upper right on your device. Using the back-button ends (and store*) the activity. *There is a switch for recording in the settings. Some people just want the timer, some want to transfer it to Garmin as an activity. You can setup this on your device or via Connect Mobile (Watch-Apps-Stretch-Settings).

In Vivoactive 3 it's very hard to exit the app! There isn't any easy way.

Developer Reply
January 25, 2019, HerrRiebmann

There is the way everyone uses: Swipe from left to right. This is how to exit ALL apps on Vivoactive 3 (like you can read it in the users-manual). If you are still recording/using the timer, stop it first with the button, then swipe from left to right. You are the first of ~14.400 users with this "problem" :)

Good app but I have some issues. When it uploads to Garmin Connect the activity is displayed as Strength Training not Stretch. Also the record functionality is not working. I have Fenix 5S

Nice, but I'd like to have an option to save more than one combination in the app, so when I change my stretch session type I don't have to open the app settings on my phone to change configuration each time

This app would be great if the vibration and sound controls would work. As it stands only the backlight comes on whenever the time is up for either the interval or the transition period. There are options to turn on vibration and sound in the app but they never seem to "save" for the actual count downs. I am using a Garmin Forerunner 935 watch.

Hello Dan, thanks for your review. Sad to hear about this kind of issues. I´ve never heard of problems like that, before. I guess Garmin messed something up in their latest firmware update for your device. Storing the setup and (if avaliable) vibration and sound is working for dozens of devices. You might try a full reboot of your watch and/or wait for a new software update. Sorry, that I can do nothing about this :-/ Hopefully Garmin will solve that!

Habe es noch niciht lange versucht, sieht aber toll aus. Warum das aber Dehnen heisst, ist mir schleierhaft und schade. Denn das tool kann man für andere Arten sehr gut brauchen wie etwa "Gymnastik im Büro" oder was auch immer. Deshalb schränkt der Begriff "Dehnen" aus meiner Sicht ein.

Developer Reply

Hi, danke für den Tipp! Das wurde mittlerweile schon häufiger angemerkt. Die App ist damals eben zu genau diesem Zweck entstanden, daher der Name. Vielleicht baue ich eine weitere, mit der man auch mehrere, verschiedene Timer hinterlegen kann. Die bekommt dann auch einen allgemeingültigen Namen ;) Hatte bisher nur zu wenig Zeit :(

HerrRiebmann, you asked me for the watch model with respect to the vibrating issue. I'm using a Forerunner 230 with the latest firmware. Hope that helps!

Nach dem letzten Intervall hört das Vibrieren leider nicht auf. Zurück-Taste beendet nur die App, aber nicht das Vibrieren. Das wird nur durch drücken von Start beendet. Allerdings startet der Timer (Wechselintervall) dann wieder. Ich verwende die App auf einer FR235.

Hallo Carmen, danke für Deine Rückmeldung! Es gibt scheinbar mit den Forerunners einige Probleme bei der Vibration. Werde sie für die FR-Reihe demnächst überarbeiten!

Useful app. I use it for stretching after a work-out. One tiny problem: my watch will not stop vibrating after a stretching session. I actually have to switch my watch off to make it stop. As a work-around, I simply disabled the vibration in the settings of this app.

Developer Reply
March 8, 2018, HerrRiebmann

Thanks! The vibrating issue seems to be related to a specific device and it´s firmware, where I don´t have access to :( I´m using a regular (officially from garmin supported) command, to vibrate for 3 seconds. Please tell me which device you are using, and I will ask Garmin! "Contact Developer" on the right side. That would be very helpful!

Great app! The only reason i gave it 4 and not 5 is because I'm looking forward to the improvement Rob Campbell suggested in the comments. It will be great if instead of one stretching program we'll have the ability to config several programs, each with its own unique name and unique timer settings. Really looking forward to it!

Das liegt leider daran, dass Garmin keine weiteren Sportarten anbietet, die passender wären. Darauf habe ich keinen Einfluss.

I like this app, but what would make it perfect is if you could save your settings for different stretches that have different time settings. To have to go and change the settings for each stretch makes this app unusable for me. I will keep an eye on it for any improvements though.

Developer Reply
October 25, 2017, HerrRiebmann

Hello Rob, thanks for your reply! It´s on the list :) But it will be quite a big change (from development and settings perspective), which makes me considering to create a new app for that. And I have to find a nice and simple solution to change between the different timer settings. Compatible to all devices with/without touch, one or more buttons :-O Stay tuned!

Love this app. It does exactly what it says it will do. I really like the vibration feedback and the interval setting. It took me some time to figure how to change the times quickly Here are improvements I would like to see in future iterations since I think this could be even better then it already is. 1) Change the name. These type of apps i found out are called Timers and this glorious app I think is not being found by others. Don't limit it to only stretching. 2) During the interval the watch vibrates constantly. (if you have selected Vibration). This is fine for say 5 seconds, but if someone has 30 seconds then that would become an annoyance. Needs a tweak. 3) Faster way to change times or the ability to add more default times for quick access. Great app, want to use it for all my workout needs, not just stretching!

Developer Reply
July 11, 2017, HerrRiebmann

Thank you very much! The vibration should vibrate for 3 seconds, only. If the transition is below 3 sec, it will not notify at all. But I´ve heard, that it sometimes wont work at the first time. Sadly I cannot do much about it, I´m just using the Garmin SDK for that. Due to the fact, that you are not the first, who asks for multiple timers, I consider about creating a second app with the possibility. In that case, I will follow your idea to use a more flexible name :)

The app is great. Something to improve is: When you get smart notifications you go out from the app. It is possible to add a save workout command?

Developer Reply
June 26, 2017, HerrRiebmann

Thanks! You are right, I´ll see what I can do to make switching to Widgets possible. You can activate "Recording" in the setup, the workout will be saved automatically after closing the application.

I´m sorry to hear that! Vibration is part of the Garmin SDK and I cannot take a hand in it :( Hope it works fine, now. If not, just leave me a message (Developer contact). Thanks!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
