I originally had the same issues others are talking about, where the distance registered on my watch was about half what the console would show. This started working after updating my ZR7's console firmware. You'll need to connect the machine to a tablet to do that since the SmartLink app is probably never going to be available on phones. It works on both my original vivoactive and vivoactive 3. It's still not great though. The distance is off a bit compared to the console, a few hundredths per mile. It's minor but I don't understand how that can happen when it's the same data. Saving and quitting when you are done is clunky. And the field descriptions are very small and unreadable while working out. But, I am at least now getting my workouts, earning Octane an "OK" rating.

Enjoyed using this app with my 645 and then my 935. Now I have the 945 and my runs on my zero runner can't be linked. Please add the 945!

Forerunner 945 missing

This would not stay paired with the zr8000. The cadence would drop intermittently and distance was way off. Huge Bummer.

Does not work with Zero Runner ZR8000. Developer indicated that support would be provided last fall but has been unresponsive as to providing status updates since then.

Please hire a good engineer to fix this app. It's clunky to use (almost like it was developed for a different platform and then ported to Garmin). Even worse, the data is not close to accurate. You need to re-write it from scratch.
Repeatedly I've run 3 miles on the Zero Runner and the app has me around 0.4 miles. There also doesn't appear to be a step count, or if so, it's wildly off. Clearly the Zero knows exactly how many steps I've taken as it will draw each one in near real time. Surely you can use this data to get an accurate step count onto the Garmin.
I have a Fenix 5S

With my ZR7 and the current Forerunner 935 it works reasonably well. Unfortunately, my Forerunner created an incorrect FIT file (R-R data) from the data transmitted by the ZR7, so that the evaluation with the program Firstbeat Individual Sports could not analyze the FIT file.

I am happy to have something more accurate that works with my Zero Runner. It's still a bit off though. I did 16 miles on the Zero Runner this past weekend and the watch says I did 16.29 while the Zero Runner says 16. If you can do something to fix that so it's right on, I'll give it 5 starts. This is however way more accurate then marking it as a treadmill run and letting it count your steps.

Enttäuschend, dass Garmin Forerunner 935 nicht kompatibel ist. Somit fehlen mir alle wesentlichen Daten in Garmin Connect.
November 28, 2016 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
Waited a long time for an app to use on my Zero Runner. Waiting for Octane to produce an Android tablet App is hopeless as they have been promising it for a couple years now. This app is as good as it gets for now. The distance is off by a factor of half for some reason. If they can fix this, I'd rate it higher and be satisfied with the app. As it is, I need to edit my Garmin Connect data to correct distance accordingly.

So glad when I seen this but when downloaded does not work with my octane fitness runner bummer
March 5, 2016 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
My vivoactive hung on Power on Zero Runner first time I tried using it too. Read the instructions on the iPAD Zero Runner app where you first go into Settings/Sensors and select add a new device. Get on the Zero Runner and start running...It then scans and finds an ANT+ "FP-16" footpod. After that it did communicate with the Zero runner correctly. However the pace seems slower on this app then the actual Zero Runner. The App could use some updates.

My Vivoactive connects to the Zero Runner but the accuracy is terrible. The watch app suggests that I am completing a much further run, much faster than I am actually completing the run. Also, the calorie counter, even combined with a heart rate monitor is drastically different. Please address these discrepancies and this will be a great app!
February 5, 2016 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
I soooooo wanted this to work, I have the ZR7. But it never talked to the ZR7 when I was using it with the vivoactive. I just barely got the FR235 and this app is apparently not even compatible with that watch. Huge disappointment from Octane on this one.
January 9, 2016 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
I am also experiencing the same data discrepancy. My vivoactive data and the data the zero runner shows are completely different. It appears to be communicating with my zero runner, but shows an average pace of half of what the zero runner shows. I'll keep the app with the hope it gets corrected, but at this juncture, very disappointing.
January 2, 2016 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
Is not communicating at all with the ZR7 I own, nor the ZR8 I demo'd last week. Pretty much not usable.
October 26, 2015 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
this is a dream come true, BUT too bad it doesnt change to zero inside. pls fix very interesting indeed
October 12, 2015 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
Pace and distance less than half of actual shown on Zero Runner. Obviously not communicating right. Worthless. Using on Vivoactive.
August 11, 2015 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
Mine also hangs on Power to Zero Runner. Am I doing something wrong?
July 23, 2015 | Version Version 1.0.7-upd
App hangs on 'power on zero runner' screen. Never finds the zero runner. Brand new VA with latest firmware.
June 25, 2015 | Version Version 1.0.7
Quite happy with the layout of display on the NEW VA
only used it on outside runs as yet
Great visibility at night with the back light.
My only bug is with the use of pace rather than average pace
As a gauge to performance this is useless on outside runs as it varies moment by moment can this be changed in next update average pace what you need over a longer distance to monitor your race or training goal.

At the moment my 920XT not receiving the distance of ZR7. And it takes a long time until the 920XT is connected to the ZR7 and all data fields in the 920XT are visible.
If it then but right now works properly, it should be a very good supplement for the 920XT and ZR7.
It would be helpful also a step by step guide for the complete implementation of this program, because of wrong operation can not be ruled by me.
