Now this is how Garmin should have let you adjust their run app! So many different good stats to see. I wish there were a few more alert options. Seperaye Alert for above/below a set pace instead of just above. Also a little more clarity of what some of the stats are instead of (A maybe avg) LL? M? Thank you for the great app. I can't wait to put lots of miles of testing in.

Rather than review, I have a question; I am keen to have the following fields, duration, distance, current pace, avg. Pace, heart rate and cadence. Can I configure them or I have to go with the fields given on front screen? Also the difference between free and paid versions

In the FREE Version the data fields cannot be changed. Therefore you have to go for the PREMIUM Version. Further details are available on the web site: www.rh-sports.at

Na endlich. Nun ist die Rundenzeitanzeige sehr gut lesbar. Und nach einem zielsicheren Hinweis des Entwicklers (Manual wäre natürlich super) kommt diese auch nach jeder Runde.

On my Garmin 630 cadence isn't displayed in this app, manually starting a new lap doesn't work and the 5 seconds average pace wildly varies. I now use Flexirunner. I am a bit disappointed,though I like the idea/concept.

Great layouts. It allows for as much or as little info on the screen as you want. Thanks for implementing the hr color coding. A very responsive developer.

I have been using the app for a while now. The free version had some bugs and would not save some of the fields on the screens i wanted. So I took a chance and bought the app and it is great. The screens are flexible and configurable. I love the Pace Req option. So I can see what pace I need to meet my race goal. Over all a good app. The only thing I wish it would do is allow me to control my music. I want to setup a playlist timed with my marathon but I cant start it once the app is running. On the base watch you can start music but I want to start it when I start my race. It works great and I have will recommend it to anyone.

I agree 100 % with Nighthawk700!!! This app made my sad experiences with many datafields obvious. Thanx to Robert for his great support. Keep on with this superb piece of work...

The app is very functional but unreadable. The letter size is to small. The pace per km/mile is dispayed in a very tiny letter size (black on coloured background). In essence a lot of functions but not usable.

Thanks for the feedback. I will improve the letter size in the alerts in the next version.

I've been using Running App Professional since July of 2016, and figured it was time I finally write a review. First off I want to focus on the developer and not the app. It's an important call because of the nature of the app, and especially since unlike many of the other apps, this is a paid one. The developer has been responsive to my emails. He may not get to it same day, but usually within a few days I'll hear back about a question or issue that I had. And a short time later, the fix will be in a new software release. Many of the suggestions I made are now implemented in the app. So now the app itself. Before I got this app, I rotated through several good data field applications for my FR235. However, no one data field app had all the fields I wanted, so I would have to flip between this one and that one. And the layout would have to be the order the designer had it. The fact that I could choose WHICH data field appears in which specific location was the key selling point to me. Add to that, on the FR235, you could only have two pages of data fields. With Running App Professional, there are a multitude of pages you can use! I have mine set so the 7 field display is my main "window" showing my paces (15sec/average/last lap/current lap), as well as the time and distance completed so far. This is because I normally start out too fast, so want to be able to gauge my pace so I can make myself slow down until I'm ready to ramp it up. A 4 data field window has my "virtual runner" with T_Ahead, Pace_Req, T_Finish, Dist, so I know if I'm on track to finish about when I expect to. For those who train by heart rate, you can set up a 4 data field window for that, and there are alerts available too, to make sure you don't go too high. The flexibility is what makes this app so strong, and for me, worth the cost. I've used this app for about 95% of my runs (training and races) since installing. Every now and then I'll play with something else, but have always come back.

Thank you very much for this great feedback. My credo is not to make money with my apps but to just get a compensation for the effort and costs I have. I give feedback to any customer request, though sometimes it might take a few days. I personally like sports very much and I would like to encourage others to also do sports. If I can help with my apps it makes me happy. If there are problems, please give me constructive feedback so that I can solve it. This approach would be a win-win situation and helps everybody.

Makes Fenix hight and barometer to go Crazy. Removed it and everything worked ok. (Fenix ver. 8.20)

Developer Reply
January 30, 2017, Robs_1976

An app runs in a so-called "sandbox" and is interpreted by a Garmin virtual machine. The app cannot influence the barometer, but can only read data from it. Maybe something during installation went wrong which an app also can´t influence. In case wrong values are shown in the app for elevation, then this is either a bug in the app (I can´t confirm this on the Fenix as I tested it today intensively) or a wrong watch configuration (please set the proper unit for elevation)

After update version 2.8.1, the app is still got errors such as: vibration and back light is ON frequently. Step calculation is not updated in real time, delayed. Please fix these errors. I am using Chronos. Thank you.

Developer Reply
January 27, 2017, Robs_1976

backlight and vibration is on frequently because you have activated the Auto-Start/Stop feature via configurations. If you don´t want to have that, please change the value to 0. It is not clear what you mean with real-time step update. Please send me a mail and explain the topic in more detail.

Great layouts. It allows for as much or as little info on the screen as you want. Request: please color code the HR so that I can see my zone at a glance. That would make it a 5 star app for me.

I typically don't buy apps, just using what comes with the device. Having said that, I love this suite of apps, and am extremely happy I purchased them. Seems to connect quicker to GPS. Connects quickly to my Sosche optical heart rate monitor, Wahoo cycling cadence monitor. I've used other apps that display all these fields on one screen, but find this display easier for my somewhat far-sighted eyes to read. Great collection of apps.

Contacted Robert about some changes to the running app; specifically the unwanted pages showing up. He gave me a timeline for their incorporation and the changes were delivered as promised and are working great. We've all see developers promise updates that never show up or are slow in coming, and thankfully that's not the case here. Very customer focused; returned my emails almost immediately. This is the best running app on the Garmin ecosystem and upgrading to the premium versions are really a great great deal, especially with the offer that's currently going on. Thanks Robert !!!!!!!!!!!!

ad 1) Was meinst du genau mit "Keine Navigation möglich"? ad 2) Ist ein Bug und wird in der nächsten Version behoben sein ad 3) Garmin stellt für Apps keine API zur Verfügung um die Beleuchtungszeiteinstellung abzufragen.
