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.

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.

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

Many thanks for taking the time to review

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??
August 9, 2018, johnepcooper
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.

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.

Great app, I would love to see monthly version of this
May 22, 2018 | Version v1.18
Exactly what I needed!!!! Great widget!
March 13, 2018 | Version v1.18
Very useful app!!! Great interface on Vivoactive 3. I wish if it could display only running distance.
March 16, 2018, johnepcooper
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.

Great widge. It's a shame Connect IQ does not allow to filter by activity type, but everything will come ;)

Thank you for taking the time to review
June 11, 2017 | Version v1.17c
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
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 :-)
June 11, 2017, johnepcooper
Thanks for the review, I should have something together in the next few days.

Excellent app, good work

As someone else said, would be nice to only sum the distance in activites.
But I understand that it is not possible at the moment.
Keep up the good work!

Super Impressive App, sir. One of the best I've seen.
March 3, 2017, johnepcooper
Thank you for the review. Glad you find it so usefull
February 28, 2017 | Version v1.15
Nice widget but could there be an option to show only the distance from the activities ? Thanks !
March 1, 2017, johnepcooper
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 https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?367364 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
If I find a way or it becomes possible in future releases then I will put something together tho
February 8, 2017 | Version v1.11
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?
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
January 25, 2017 | Version v1.11
Excellent widget very useful. Thank u
February 9, 2017, johnepcooper
Thanks for the review
January 21, 2017 | Version v1.11
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.

Excellent widget. Just a question what is the default days bar color.??
January 19, 2017, johnepcooper
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
January 14, 2017 | Version v1.05
Thank you very cool!
January 12, 2017 | Version v1.03
Interesante opción para tener una referencia semanal. Buen trabajo
