Hello and thank you for the app.
I use it with a Fenix 5 + HR strap.
During the work out I can see the floors number going up, however on the Connect IQ page on the phone or on the web, while the activity shows, I don't see any mention of the floor counter.
What am I doing wrong?
November 1, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the reveiw, however as for the Connect App floors.
Garmin Connect ignores the main floors (same as in the elliptical app distance and speed) I provide. The Garmin Connect developers do not follow their own SDK Fit Contributor class 'nativeNum', which is an override to data in the fit file. If you would view your activity on mapmyrun or endomondo you will see your main floors, distance and speed, but not in Garmin Connect. As a workaround, i do provide the floors in the stats section. I encourage you to complain to "Garmin Connect Developers" to follow the IQ SDK Fit Contributor class 'nativeNum', which overrides the data in the FIT file.

Betrifft Vollversion für Vivoactive HR - Indoor, ohne GPS:
Die App hat bei den Schritten (Steps =0) immer wieder Aussetzer, sodass auch die Stockwerke nicht richtig berechnet werden. Auch die Höhendaten werden nicht durchgehend aufgezeichnet!

Thanks for your review, but if you are using “watch only” the watch hand must move or no steps will be countrd. For best results pair your watch with a HRM-Run or foot pod. Then the results are near 100% perfect.
Its best to ask the question to the developer before posting a question.

Sounds like it works well for other people but for me the app doesn't register any floors at all when I use the stairclimber at my gym. I climb 200 floors, the app shows 0 :(

Thanks for the review, but your hand has to move or use a hrm-run or use a footpod. Using either will give great results, if your not using these your watch hand MUST move in order to count steps.

Not a bad app.But would be nice if it will be implemented like a universal datafiled screen so we can use it in any default garmin app.
September 28, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, but that cannot be done due to the StairMaster+ needs raw sensor data and ability to save "Stair Climbing" sessions.
September 21, 2017 | Version 1.4
Could not use this app for indoor stair climbing. When I stop it between intervals the screen says resume but could not make that happen. So I did not stop it between intervals and if it went too long the data was automatically saved. Then I had to start from scratch again.

Thanks for reviewing the app, the app has a trial period to test/try before purchasing an unlock code for 99 cents + paypal fee. Refer to the stairmaster app store page on how to purchase the unlock code.
September 18, 2017 | Version 1.4
Die App ist noch verbesserungsbedürftig! Viele Daten werden nach der Speicherung nicht mehr auf der Vivoactive HR und in Garmin Connect angezeigt oder nicht korrekt angezeigt!
Die Stockwerke werden sehr genau berechnet! (Hier 5 Sterne)

Thanks for the review. Not all data items are supported by your watch type. Contact me directly if you have further questions.

The Garmin premium heart rate monitor, works for this app? If so, how do I make to register the floors and how I calibrate the app with the stair master machine?
September 2, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, only the HRM-RUN or TRI, has cadence and the work with registering floors. Calibration is done by editing the steps per floor using either main menu function while in the stairmaster app or in configuration settings.

Does a Garmin Foot POD help on a GYM StairMaster, to get More Accurate feedback ?
July 11, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review a foot pod will work for the application. However the HRM- Run/Tri or Running Dynamics Pod are better choices.
June 18, 2017 | Version 1.1
Great app i use stairs on off days. I agree with previous review about the moving your arm on the stairmaster. However, with the HRM RUN, the accuracy in almost perfect. I wish garmin would allow developers to write to the Floors Total, but currently that isn't alowed by Garmin. Other than that, I got my code and it worked well. A+ App highly recommended.
June 6, 2017 | Version 1.0.0
I find it very difficult to keep my arm moving while I am on the stair climber. Its a very high machine and I am worried I could fall off. I tried just holding on with one hand but that was to uncomfortable. I tend to set the machine to a single SPM so being able to enter that as a constant at the start would really work for me.
June 7, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, using the HRM-RUN solves this issue. With the use of the chest strap HRM, accuracy and reporting is near 100%.
April 30, 2017 | Version 0.2
Great app, but for some reason it's counting twice the steps per minute on the stairmaster on my VHR. If I can figure out why that's the case, this is perfect for me!
May 3, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review. Out the box this app needs to be configured to the machine you are using. The Step per Floor needs to be adjusted, likely the value is to low. Also, if you don't have a HRM that provides cadence/steps and maybe losing steps if your watch hand is NOT moving. Keep stepping!
April 30, 2017 | Version 0.2
I used this app on the garmin 235 this morning on the stairs machine. I'm not sure that the floors is very accurate. I will use it a few more times and see what happens.
April 30, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review. Out the bix this app needs to be configured to the machine you are using. Also, if you don't have a HRM that provides cadence steps maybe lost if your watch hand is NOT moving.

How to go GPS
April 15, 2017, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, in configuration check Outdoor workout. That will turn on GPS functions. I'm testing an auto lap feature that will be in the next release.
April 14, 2017 | Version 0.2
Finally, an app that works with the lesser used cardio equipment. Works great with an HRM. Only wish the steps would translate to the Garmin app but Garmin has locked out the dev from adding floors climbed to the main screen. (Fenix 3 HR)

Thanks for the review!
