Works very well to wake me up feeling fresh with one gripe... Other notes; Battery drain in Fenix 5x plus is as advertised. Easy to use. It’s the only app that I’ve used, having tried several, that is intuitive, regularly updated by the developer and actually seems to work. My only gripe is; to set the alarm to vibration only, you have to do it globally, via system settings for all activities. This is frustrating as alert tones are useful in activities but they alarm sound disturbs my other half. It might be a Garmin limitation, but frustrating nonetheless.

Hello there! I´ve installed the software and activated the licence on my Vivoactive 4, but I can not use the PRO-funktions. Starting the app in the watch I can set 1 alarm, but can´t figure out how to set a sleep goal or a list of alarms. Settings says "Pro version active, 364 days left". Alarm mode is sleep goal (green), List mode is ON (green). Garmin Connect app on my smartphone shows a new card, named "Smartwake", showing me Kilometer, Kalories, activity time, heart frequency. WHY? What to do to make the right settings?

Excellent application. Thank you!

Hi Evgenii, we just published a new version that fixes the issue with Fenix 7 activation! If you are still having issues after updating please contact us directly.

Please, explain how to activate pro version on Fenix 7 SS. I paid already and have the pro code but I can’t get to the menu option to enter and activate it.

Hi 69smir, thanks for reaching directly to us. Fenix 7 activation issue was just fixed today! If you are still having issues after updating please contact us again.

Very cool app. Are you going to update it for Fenix 7x? I’m waiting it very much

After adding Fenix 7 to the compatible device in the last version, we also added support for Fenix 7 activation today ;)

It's a really cool feature and works very well. If the Problems with BodyBattery and the SleepScore etc. would be fixed, I would highly recommend this app and rate it with 5 stars then. The sleep data and BodyBattery status are more Important for me. Hope this will be fixed soon!

Hi Laura, I am afraid but Garmin will probably not change the behaviour of their framework. As mentioned before, there is nothing that we could to to fix body battery and sleep score on new devices. You might help us by sending a user voice request to their support. Thanks and sorry!

Hi Nihat, we have not registred any purchase with our payment provider from an email address that is similar to your user name nor did we register any payment that did not send the invoice, instructions and the link to the upgrade code. Please contact us directly via contact developer so we can have a look at your case.

Forerunner 645- app no longer works for me. Used to use it fine, but now the wake up windows are all over the place. Sometimes will be 10 minutes after I set the alarm, sometimes way before it should be possible. What happened?

Developer Reply
March 6, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Colin, thanks for your feedback. Can you please provide more information via contact developer? Are you using pro Version or the freemium? Does it occur no matter how you set parameters? We havent made any big changes, sometimes we experienced different behaviours of apps after connectiq framework was updated. I am positive that we can fix that.

Ruin sleep statistics and body battery level on Forerunner 945.

Developer Reply
January 21, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Aleksey, as already mention in the description and in almost every third comment, body battery does not work accordingly when using smartwake. Sadly we cannot do anything about it. There is no workaround, only a changes in the connect iq framework could resolve the issues. Sleep statistics are only affected in the latest models where sleep statistics is calculated directly on the watch. We mentioned that as well in the description

- noch immer funktioniert Body Battery nicht gleichzeitig - Keine Auswertung oder sonstige Infos - Wenn aktiviert, viel heller (kann z.B. Partner im Bett stören)

Developer Reply

Hallo Petra, wie in unsere Beschreibung und mehreren Kommentarantworten erwähnt sind uns hier die Hände gebunden. Jede Aktivität wird per se als Reduktion der Body Battery gewertet. Wir haben einige Tipps und wichtige Einstellungsmöglichkeiten in unsere Beschreibung inkludiert, insbesondere die Beleuchtung während der Aktivität sollte du in den Einstellungen der Uhr prüfen. Dann wird auch kein Partner gestört. Es empfiehlt sich auch auf Vibrationsalarm umzustellen, um niemanden zu seiner persönlichen Weckzeit zu wecken. Was meinst du mit Auswertung oder sonstige Infos? Du kannst dich gerne direkt an uns wenden wenn du auf "Contact Develpers" klickst.

Will it works with tactic delta solar?

Developer Reply
January 21, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Ahmed, we could try to add it if you contact us directly. We need somebody to test it before adding it for the app. Its likely though that body battery is affected by that.

December 22, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

Is there a way to change settings to vibration instead of audible? Currently I'm only able to get audible using fenix 6

Developer Reply
January 21, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Corey, please go to the general settings of the watch and switch off alarms withing sound settings (usually sounds are active during activities). You may find a more detailed description in the description of the app in the store. If you need any assistance please reach out to us.

December 10, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

App works fine for me. You have to set it up correctly though. Just wish it would still work with the body battery

December 4, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

Does nothing on fenix.

Sleep tracking and body battery don’t work with this… hm… app (facepalm)

Developer Reply
January 21, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Anton. Sadly body battery usage and sleep tracking is limited for known reasons. It is stated quite prominently in the second paragraph of the description (facepalm)

October 12, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

The contact form doesn't work so I have to go through the comments (I will edit once solved) : Hello, Battery gets empty very fast with the app running during the night + native sleep watch doesn't work anymore (and therefore also my body battery is very low) Can this be normal? What shall I do?

Developer Reply
January 21, 2022, BlackTusk

Hi Arthur, depending on the watch and the battery level we experienced acceptable (FR245) to hight battery drain (Venu1). We also shared a table in the description with approx. battery usage per night. OLED displays seemed to be affected more frequently in the past. New devices that calculate sleep directly on the watch instead of sending it to the server for calculation, sadly exclude every datapoint that happens within an activity. This is by design. Sorry there is nothing we can do about it.

August 23, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

"IQ" icon solved!! If you open Settings in IQ app and then disagree that "Active" button, "IQ" on watch display is gone and the app launch is ok ✌️✌️

August 11, 2021 | Version 3.0.4

I have the same issue as others. I downloaded the app to my Vivoactive 3 and get the "IQ!" Symbol when I try to launch the app.

Seems to interfere with body battery, first time i used the app, my body battery did not recharge through my 8 hours of sleep, I'm apparently at 14/100 right now but feel great!

Killing the battery of my 735xt and not really working as well as an app on my phone...

Hallo Markus, wie bereits letzten Monat im direkten Mailkontakt möchte ich darauf hinweisen dass auf die Lizenzdauer sowohl unsere ABGs als auch im Text im Webshop hingewiesen wird. Wir haben aufgrund deines Feedbacks letzten Monat auch die Lizenzdauer direkt unter dem Kauf-Button angebracht um Missverstädnisse zu vermeiden. Das Angebot aus der Mail besteht weiterhin.
