Superbe. I use to records my daily sreps to monitor my exercises. Unfortunatly I had a surgery and now have to walk with a walker, therefore steps no longuer register as my arms dont move. Thanks to this lite app I can now track my daily walking distance and therefore create a rehab plan to regain my shape. Many thanks.

Wow many thanks for your kind review and I am so so happy you find this useful for your rehab. Best of luck with everything and if you any ideas for improvements that could help you please let me know. Many thanks John

Really nice widget. Please note the current version of the widget does not work when changing settings with the new "Connect IQ" app. When changing Weekly Distance, or Week Start, the widget crashes, leaving the following output on the watch (CIQ_LOG.TXT): ERROR: Invalid Value DETAILS: Failed invoking symbol STORE_ID: 0953ac456d4e4879967fb6aa38097e3f CALLSTACK: @PC = 0x10006f2a @PC = 0x10006b3e @PC = 0x10000344 @PC = 0x10000155 ERROR: Invalid Value DETAILS: Failed invoking symbol STORE_ID: 0953ac456d4e4879967fb6aa38097e3f CALLSTACK: @PC = 0x10006f2a @PC = 0x10006b3e @PC = 0x10000344 @PC = 0x10000155

Hi and thanks for taking the time to review. I have not experienced any issues with the new app so could you please send me the details on your device and if you are using the android or iOS app so I can understand and fix any you have seen

January 26, 2019 | Version v1.19

Useful widget & good UI. What would make it really useful is the ability to pick which activities to track vs. tracking total distance the device has seen. Example: there is no obvious widget out there that let's you just track your Running mileage against recurring weekly goals. Such an obvious need & obvious miss on Garmin Connect too. This app is very close to nicely meeting this need - would then get more downloads too!

Thanks for taking the time to review I completely agree on the individual activity tracking. Like you a lot of people have suggested it would be really useful. My reason for creating the widget was to track my total weekly running distance but unfortunately, there is not currently a way to separate the data out in the development kit so I do not think it's feasible at the mo. I will defiantly look at it if Garmin make the data available. Cheers John

In my case (935) is not working. IQ logo appears every time and no data is displayed. I saved (and changed) multiple times the settings to force the update with no success. Help!

Hi sorry you have some issues. There has been an update to correct an issue with the start of the week but if the issue us still happening could you use the contact developer and I can try and help.

January 1, 2019 | Version v1.19

I am doing a yearly miles challenge - do you have a version that counts down for a year?

I want to use this widget on my FR 230 but it shows me only the IQ logo with an exclamation mark... What to do??

Hi David sorry you have a few issues. This IQ symbol is usually due to a missing setting or no available data. I have tried to check for this in code but could you check and change a setting for the widget via the mobile app and try again. If you still have issues use the contact developer and send me an email i will send you some instructions on how to change the settings. Thanks John

Very Nice and usefull to display weekly activity. Target distance is set in mobile application, would be nice if could be also set directly onto watch.

June 27, 2018 | Version v1.18

Great app, I would love to see monthly version of this

Thanks for taking the time to review I completely agree on the individual activities and the original idea was to find a way to track my total weekly running distance. Unfortunately, although you can see the activity totals on your device, the different activity data is not available to the software development kit so it cannot be used in a widget, watch face or data field so I do not think it's feasible unfortunately.

awesome. just what I am looking for. I f I had to make a suggestion for making it even better, it would be nice to have additional sites with longer timespans like a Month

Developer Reply
June 11, 2017, johnepcooper

Thanks for the kind review. The data in the device is only held for 7 days so the longer times would mean trying to read it back off the Garmin history. To be honest this is a little bit beyond my ability at the moment but I will keep learning.

Perfect distance tracker widget on a weekly/daily basis. Also good communication with the developer on a calorie widget which he is willing to develop!! Very good :-)

Hi and thanks for the review. I completely agree and the original idea was to find a way to track my running distance weekly. Although you can see the total weekly running distance on your device, the data is not available to the software development kit so cannot be used in a widget, watch face or data field so I do not think it s feasible unfortunately. I checked with the Garmin Developer Forums when I started the widget and they unfortunately confirmed it. Its a shame there is only a limited data set to play with and Garmin don't allow access to more, it would be a useful widget to for any activity type running, swimming cycling etc Many Thanks John If I find a way or it becomes possible in future releases then I will put something together tho

This is great! I want this *exact* app, but for steps. I can't seem to find any widget out there that lets me set my own week's step goal, displays it as awesome as your app does, and starts over each Monday or Sunday (the *current* week, not the past 7 days). How hard would it be for you to do this? Or to allow the option within this widget, or a new widget?

Developer Reply
February 9, 2017, johnepcooper

Thanks for the review. As the daily steps are available in the device history, applying the same type of weekly calc should be relatively straight forward.. I'll see what is involved and possibly release a new Steps version of the widget

Excellent widget. It consolidates data from your activity tracker (number of steps) with that from your activities (running, walking, biking etc.) and gives you the total distance. This adds to the functionality of Garmin Connect itself (in the sense that, as of January 2017, Connect can generate a total distance report for your activities only). Besides, it does what is says, it is configurable and works. Warmly recommend it! 5 stars.

Thanks for the review and fair point on the poor description of the settings.. It is the inner progress bar color but I will make sure I improve the descriptions in the next release
