I have a Venu 2 and the same problems like so many before me.. Why can't you put the start/stop on the a button? the screen as start stop is really bringing the app down.. Need some donations to do that or is it a technical or programming problem? Thanks for a short info..

December 15, 2022 | Version V4.2

Easy to use, delivers a minimum of information as reported. Why are steps not shown in the report. Distance is meaningless, it should be estimated by steps as well as approximation of speed by steps/min.

September 7, 2022 | Version v4.1

Would be great if you could see your step count.

i can see the step count on my watch .. are you using an older version perhaps?

July 9, 2022 | Version v4.1

me parece la mejor para medir globalmente, hay otras que miden saques, etc pero son muy complicadas de controlar para el jugador

the measure serves?! sounds pretty cool (but probably tricky and they get it wrong ;)

The previous version of the app was better. Tracked more information (e.g. calories and one or two other things), was activated by the button rather than tapping the watch face, and had generally better layout of information. With the new app, first and foremost it is very frustrating that a brushing of the watch against your leg or other arm will stop it tracking, and with the small amount of information it displays now you'd think the author would have increased the size of the font for better at-a-glance readability. Given the annoyances I'm going to try out some of the other squash apps. App Author, if you update the app to be more like your previous design I'd definitely come back and use it.

Haven't tried it yet, however, been a happy user of the app for a year. Can you please make the data fields with a bigger font? The current one is really minuscule. EG the heart rate control is a real challenge with the current font... Thanks!

interesting - seems fine to me on vivoactive and forerunner though i could make the text larger.. what watch are you using?

December 27, 2021 | Version v4.1

I would give 5 stars if the app could block the screen when it is active. I have accidently discarded the training multiple times and that drives me crazy. Please fix that.

Developer Reply
December 2, 2022, NiallHurley

That must be specific to some devices... guessing you're on a vivoactive? I think i can add that at some stage when i get time

Works great, but would be better if activated with button instead of screen. Too many accidental touches during Sqaush game.

i thikn this is only a problem on certain devices... but it's now on the list of things to be fixed! (when i can find some time to fix it!)

Hello, please add kilometers and steps like it was in old version

Agree with the other reviews, touching the screen to start/stop is not great, too many accidental presses and stopping/discarding of the activity. Please revert back to the side button press! Great app aside from this change, many thanks!

October 6, 2021 | Version v4.1

Accidentally stopped the session by touching the screen and discarded the info, it never used to do this, please revert back to button press for start and stop.

Same experience for me as for other users: the active touch screen when the app is running makes it often halting when not expected. Please block the touch screen and use the side button to get the menu up. I do not care about steps measurement and distance as that cannot be reliable at squash, unless you use some instrument attached to your shoes. It would be nice though if you could color code the heart rate based on the set ranges. I use reading glasses and cannot read the heart rate, but a color would be helpful.

I really liked the app but the new version is not working for me. I really need the start/stop button back. during the game it happens a lot you accidentally tap the screen and it stops. please change it back. I have the vivoactive 4.

September 9, 2021 | Version v4.1

The old version was better. The new version does not show the distance you have covered while playing sqaush. The steps do not appear in the training and the app.

Developer Reply
September 10, 2021, NiallHurley

Thanks for the feedback - I removed them as many reviewers were upset at the step count and the distance (both of which are measured by Garmin - not by the app). I'll investigate adding the steps/distance back in to the app but will likely keep them off the watch screen

Well done. Everything works as it should. It looks just the way I want it to.

July 31, 2021 | Version v4.1

Aggiornata di recente è diventata only touch. Risultato non funziona più perché le gocce di sudore finiscono sullo schermo e vengono percepite come comandi cancellando, interrompendo o salvando l’attività. Torniamo alla versione funzionante con i tasti laterali dell orologio!!!

Developer Reply
September 10, 2021, NiallHurley

that's a good point! perhaps i should go back to the buttons rather than the touch screen...

Trying app out first time today. So cannot rate yet for performance. Would be nice to have option to change to metric units: kg, km

June 9, 2021 | Version v2.4.1

HR seems fine on 735XT, in line with other squash apps. Main issue is the app data only takes up about 1/3 of screen, towards top left. The time is too small to be readable. Any chance of configuring this to fill screens of different dimensions, please?

Doesnt work on vivo4 just locks up and sits there

Many things work pretty good I this App, but the distance and average speed calculation are very strange. In my one hour squash practice I make average 4000 steps, but the distance in this App is around 400 m. How it is possible? If my steps are at least one foot long, the distance is much longer. But we make longer steps in squash game than one foot.

December 27, 2020 | Version v2.4.1

I liked the ease of use, not sure how accurate distance is, but as long as it's consistent analysis doesn't matter. it shows up as tennis when uploading to trainingpeaks, is there a way to edit the app so it shows as squash, does it link to the footpod to calculate distance?

October 25, 2020 | Version v2.4.1

Hi! Well done, the application does what it takes. It worked for me for about a year, and a month ago it stopped after about five minutes. I installed all the updates and tried deleting and reinstalling. Can I try to work some more? Greeting

October 12, 2020 | Version v2.4.1

Crap! Unfortunately doesn’t work! Does not count anything right!! Distance wrong, steps wrong and calories wrong.

September 25, 2020 | Version v2.4.1

Well done! Most perfect activity for squash, after trying cardio, run, indoor run, yard work, rugby, track, soft ball etc. I understand the API is limited hence the distance being way out, really think Garmin can fix the distance vs steps but again, very impressed with the app!!!
