I have used this app for the elliptical and weights at the Y. I recently started using it for open water swimming, and yesterday I used the multisport option for the first time during a triathlon. This app worked GREAT! I read the directions on how to use it and it did exactly what I needed. I highly recommend using this if you are a multisport athlete or if Garmin doesn't have a widget for your activity, give this one a try.

This app does an excellent job adding triathlon capabilities to my watch, and the smart virtual partner feature is fantastic!! Now I don't need to upgrade to a high end and more expensive watch! I saved 200 bucks! Keep the excellent work!

Irritating!! 1. Download app 2. Opening on the watch appears "to configure go to" 3. On REGISTER first 4. Starting 5 Captcha sessions after this 5. Password has to have one numeric: ANOTHER 5-7 CAPTCHAS sessions 6. Password hast to have one in capital: ANOTHER 5-7 CAPTCHAS sessions 7. Confirmation email did not come in time, request another: ANOTHER 5-7 sessions CAPTCHAS. Would it be too genius to put the info about password before Captchas? 8. Email confirmed, now you have to find out a code of your watch to register it to be able to start configuration. 9. Code found, entered: Try the full version of Workout Genius for 30 days!!!! 10. Choose Subscriptions Plan (says refundable) 11. No plan, no no config instruction & over 30 min wasted.

Hi Oscar, Forerunner 235 is not supported due to technical restrictions of your hardware. Unfortunately, there is no workaround for that. All other device models are supported.

Just tested it in a short triathlon in my vivoactive and it worked flawlessly!!! Thaks a lot for this great app!

I have to report a bug. Lately, when I save an activity, the clock reboots and when it resumes, in the history the activity can not be consulted. It is called Non Valid and there is no data

It seems there is a problem in Garmin's latest firmware update for Fenix HR. The problem was reported to Garmin. Take a look at Garmin's discussion forum:

August 16, 2017 | Version 1.8.4

Good App, but no Support within 2Weeks. And on Vivoactive HR recording can accidentally stop during swimming leg. Because maybe someone hit the Startbutton..

Essential tool for making customized workouts. Online workout creation is fairly intuitive and easy. Worth the yearly subscription.

Yesterday I worked out with Gym Genius and today went to a run with this app!! Amazing job!! Congrats to the developer!

I just downloaded this app and am excited to try it! Would this work well for workout classes, such as Zumba and Piyo? I'd love to find an app that calculates my heart rate along with calories burned during my classes. Thanks!

Now that it has a leg repetitions and I can do real swimrun competitions with a lot of run and swim-sections this is a true five star app! Worked like a charm at last weekends competition with 10 runs and 10 swims. Thanks!

August 22, 2016 | Version 1.5.1

Amazing very useful app with so many features that I can customise as I want!

August 7, 2016 | Version 1.5.1

My favorite app for daily jogging with good looks & useful features. I recommend it for vivoactive.

July 29, 2016 | Version 1.5.0

Used it for kayaking this evening. Very accurate!!!!!!

Best app for vivoactive so far! Lot's of options, flexibility and easy to read the data on screen. Tried a short practice swimrun: Run/transition/Swim/transition/Run. Worked like a charm! Now this would be perfect if I could do a real swimrun with leg repetitions! Then I'll give it five stars without a doubt. Thanks for this awesome app!

Done! I am waiting for the 5 stars! :p

Too much work.

June 27, 2016 | Version 1.5.0

I basically couldn't be happier with this app. I needed it specifically for triathlon. I just used it for that purpose with my Vivoactive (not HR) and it worked flawlessly. For those wishing to use the app for triathlon, just realize that it can't be used for open water because the GPS is not accurate underwater for the Vivoactive. All I wanted to know for the swim though was my time so what I did was make an event called "Open Swim" but choose the activity to be "Transition" so it saved as a timed activity. I loved that you can customize all the data fields and set alerts for pace. It picked up my speed and cadence sensors for the bike, which was lucky for me because I don't have a bike computer and used my phone for training (can't use during race).

June 24, 2016 | Version 1.5.0

La migliore app provata finora!!! A breve passerò alla versione premium

June 16, 2016 | Version 1.4.2

it not run in muy vivoactive

June 14, 2016 | Version 1.4.2

Web interface works great. Very impressed and well worth the investment and I don't even use all the features that the Pro version adds. I was just willing to pay for the overall great functionality the app provides.

June 10, 2016 | Version 1.4.2

A great program that can replace all other sports applications. I miss only one thing to show the direction to the start point when I lose orientation in the forest. It is a very useful and necessary function. In the paid version it should be.

May 21, 2016 | Version 1.3.0

Exactly what I was looking for! I just want to see Pace, Heart Rate and Distance when I'm running and scrolling through all the Garmin fields is a pain, esp. in winter with gloves and long sleeves on. This app I can configure to show just what I want to see and the most important one on top. So easy! Plus I made another one for workouts in the gym: elliptical and one for weight training (which Garmin doesn't track normally). All in the FREE features. I love it! (and I did donate b/c I loved it so much)!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
