I used this App for my HIIT training on my Fenix 3, just upgraded my watch to Forerunner 945 and found it is not in the list, please add 945

It was working fine for couple of times..and suddenly now i cannot find it on my garmin watch

Great app, but PLEASE make your Fitness Timer compatible with Vivoactive 3 Music! The limited functionality of this app in comparison is frustrating.

January 23, 2019 | Version 1.2.2

niestety app niekompatybilna z moim garminem. proszę o instrukcję jak to odinstalować. za każdym razem kiedy próbuję odinstalować aplikacja przerywa połączenie z zegarkiem.

January 21, 2019 | Version 1.2.2

Application où rien n'est réglable, et impossible à désinstaller !!

Great and simple app! I use it daily for my training!

March 8, 2018 | Version 1.2.1-upd5

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Simple and fuss free. I wish more apps were of this style.

Great app! Simple and easy to use, just as a Tabata timer should be. I do agree that seeing HR in the timer screen would be nice but I can’t be too picky with an already awesome, free app!

Flamme 18; le 20/10 c'est le principe du tabata; pour faite autre chose il y'a la fonction fractionné . Manque juste un decompte d'au moins 3 secondes avant la fin de la phase d'exercice.

July 18, 2017 | Version 1.2.1

Aucun intérêt à télécharger cette application. Impossible de modifier quoi que ce soit (8 tours de 20sec d'efforts 10sec de repos), super la séance. La même application avec la possibilité de modifier le nombre de tour, le temps d'efforts/repos ainsi que le nom de l'exercice de chaques efforts serait le top.

I'll give it four stars for the simplicity and ease of use. I believe it could easily be a five star app if it had the small amount of customization of how many sets. It has 8 rounds per set, but if you could add how many sets of the 8 with maybe a minute cool down between it would be nice. It's just a bit clunky to ads each 4 minute exercise to my Garmin Connect separately, especially if I'm doing quite a few. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you're enjoying the app. For a customizable version, please take a look at the FitnessTimer, maybe you'll like that one better. Cheers!

Simple and good. Only minor thing I miss, is heart rate visualized during training.

January 3, 2017 | Version 1.2-upd1

I reach my goal everytime :-)) love it!!

December 30, 2016 | Version 1.2-upd1

J aimerai pouvoir modifier le temps et les répétions ???. Si vous modifier cela dans la mise a jour vous êtes au top

just in time when I'm going for my Tabata regiment, great stuff!

September 25, 2016 | Version 1.2-upd

Just what I was looking for! Thanks!

September 3, 2016 | Version 1.2-upd

It would be nice if the app logged my GPS data as running data. And my steps aswell. Also it would be great if the splits was parted up in the sprint/rest intervals

Dear developers, I appreciate your development. It is a great app for vivoactive hr watch. And should I sugguest that you can add the functions for users to tailor make the time of doing exerices,resting,preparation and intervels. For example,my habit is 30s for exercises and 13s for rest and doing 15 internals for 3 rounds. I hope that we can see more functions in the next update. Thanks for your effort. We all like you. Cheers Henry

Hi Henry, thank you for your review. I'm glad you're enjoying the app. This particular application was intended to be simple, but I just released a more customizable version of this app. It's called Fitness Timer and allows you to modify the parameters. Take a look! Have fun training ;)

July 20, 2016 | Version 1.0-upd1

Simple and helpful. All you need :-)

June 13, 2016 | Version 1.0-upd

This is a very nice app. However it could be nice to be able to see the heart rate data

Hi! Thanks for the review. If your device has a heart rate monitor or you have a chest strap, then HR data is recorded in the activity. Let me know if you still have problems.

May 16, 2016 | Version 1.0

Easy to use Tabata app! Start and go, and follow the buzz/sound prompts. No need to look at the watch during the workout,

May 16, 2016 | Version 1.0

Great app!
