Although the test alarm after 2 seconds worked well, both me and my wife did not et any further alerts today (Fenix 6 S pro and X pro). Perhaps ad a setting to allow to reduce the 30 min wait of the catcher car to 1 min to enable trying it out in an easier way. A pitty the field does not show my distance - catckhercar distance so I can see how close it is.

Hi Joost, thank you for review. Did you tried at home or during the run? If there is less then 1km elapsed distance of activity, also no alerts are shown - except of Test Alert. This is by design, to reduce code and save computing power of your watch. Adding debug features like removing 30 minute delay is not an option. The calculation was tested several times virtually and also under real circumstances. This is a single data field and the goal is to keep track where the catcher car overtakes you. That value is also the result vor the WFL Run. Working with runner dist. - catcher car dist. is not very helpful - if not converted to a estimated catch time, which is not the purpose of this datafield.

Unfortunately I haven’t managed to enable the alarm setting. In your Video you have the „WingsForLifeAlarm“ Field which I don’t get. But either way great usage, excited for Sunday!

Adding Alarm might be slightly different depending on the watch model. Try to add a new Alarm and make sure you swipe to "Connect IQ Data Fields". Check also if the Alarm already exists and if you can activate it. If "Connect IQ Data Fields" not existis, check for firmware updates in Garmin Express. Let me know if that helps and good run!

It would be nice to have the possibility to switch between car distance from start and car distance from the runner. With current version (distance from start only) I always have to compare two numbers and estimate the difference between them, which is not wery convenient when running. Car distance from the runner would simply decrease to zero and it would be simple.

Thank you for your review. Yes that would be simple but might be confusing. Your approach makes absolute sense if car is almost behind you but confusing after start because the value is going up instead of going down. After finishing the run, youd like to show the reached distance and not that the car reached you at 0 km. Additional you have to know how far you run, so the eplased running distance should anyway on your data screen.

Das Wings for Life Datenfeld funktioniert Super. Auch die Installation und Einstellung geht einfach von der Hand. Bin gestern eine Testrunde mit Gelaufen und freu mich schon auf den 09.05.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
