Description

This watch app tracks squash activity (time, heartrate, steps, calories). </p><p></p><p>Use the side button to start/stop the activity. </p><p></p><p>This is based on the SquashApp by miss-architect with score tracking removed and the Start/Stop modified to use the side button only.

I really like the app actually but I think there must be a way to accurately tell the distance done in a session. There’s no way I only covered .07 of a mile in an hour session.

unfortunately it's using the GPS to try estimate the distance... a known problem that i'm hoping to get some time to address in the near future

Totally unrealistic data measurement

Hope you enjoyed this free app. Feedback much appreciated.

Testing with a cardio belt on Vivo4 the wrist HR measure depends a lot on the activity as Garmin uses different HR algorithms. If you can use the Cardio one for the app it would work better for Squash

Unfortunetaly it doesn't work well. Measurment of calories is wrong. It ' s impossible, that I had burned only 190 kcal on my 1 hour lasting training. Also it cut some data and I can' t see the hours.

I hear you! the calories info is supplied by Garmin and is likely so wrong because the device thinks you're playing tennis, not squash. There's no option to set the Garmin API to interpret the activity as squash... I might look into fixing this in the future though

Same problem as oyhers , heart rate doesnt read correctly. Swapped over to aerobic setting and heart rate was accurate. Theres something wrong with the app.

Developer Reply

Heartrate measurement is a device issue - not the app's fault! I promise! :) Where's this 'aerobic' setting? I don't see that on my device

Hi. I have the fenix5 Sapphire and the heart rate and steps is not accurate. Played 4 games allready and not improving after insuring the watch is on the correct position on the wrist. Thanks

Hi - thanks for the review - the HR measurement is a Garmin one - or a wrist HR measuring one. The app just reads the data that Garmin's API supplies from the device.

Thanks for making a nice app. Works well. I read comments about the heart rate not being correct. The wrist heart rate on my 935 work great for every activity I have put it through except playing Squash. I play every week and never once has it worked during a game. It reads correct for about 2 or 3 min and then drops to half (this was before using this app). I use chest strap now and works fine. I doubt that heart rate issues during Squash would be a result of this app. Thanks again for making this available.

thanks for the review - the HR issue is a general Garmin one - or perhaps a wrist HR one... my vivoactive3 appears to measure HR correctly when I run... but underestimates when i play squash (or i've some bizarre fitness!) Unfortunately I can only read the HR data that the device captures

forerunner 645 - After quitting the application and exporting to garmin connect, it incorrectly calculates steps per km, instead of showing 2.5 km it shows 0.25 km

interesting - i'll look into this when i can - I haven't seen this measurement... Ultimately the steps data comes from the Garmin API which i can only read from

It seems not compatible with my Fenix 6 pro, I just see an IQ icon when I open the app

apologies- i don't have a fenix 6 to test it on :(

With my fenix 5, data of step and data distance false...

Developer Reply

this data comes from the garmin API... steps should be accurate... distance comes from GPS which is a problem I'll get around to solving

Really enjoy having a Squash app. Been going well, recently though my HR is being checked correctly? On app it’s probably half of what it actually is. Hopefully can get fixed. Thanks

HR is measured by Garmin - the app just presents that data. it seems to measure mine fine most of the time - I wear it above the wrist, strap tight. What device are you using? (given this is not a solo complaint I'll investigate further - thanks)

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
