Can't seem to change any settings on a vivoactive 3

I'm sorry about this. There seems to be a bug where Garmin's 'picker' code works on simulator, but not on the actual VA3.

Seems to stop counting when I exit the screen. Am I doing something wrong? Fenix 5 WiFi

If you exit the screen while it's counting down, then most likely you are closing the app.

Many thanks for this app. It does what it should in a great way! Something I noticed however, is that the time of the activity always differs from the time set. For example, if I set a 15 minute session, the recorded activity appears to be 16+ minutes. I also put a 1 minute session just to test it, and the recorded activity is 1:05. Is this behavior a bug or this extra time is actual meditation time and done on purpose? Thank you in advance.

Hi Mikes. Thank you for your review and feedback. When recording the activity, I use Garmin's ConnectIQ API commands to start and stop the activity recording, so it's handled by the system i.e. I'm not adding any extra time intentionally. However, I shall check my code to make sure I'm starting and stopping the recording at the correct point. Thanks again.

I like this app. One thing that seemed to have changed last month (or so) is that the activity is not saved anymore, even if the setting 'rec' is on. I'm using a Forerunner 230 with the latest firmware and latest version of this app.

Hi Alex. Thanks for your review. I haven't updated the app in a while, so nothing should have changed unless there's been a firmware update to your watch. Or perhaps you are running low on space on your watch? I will take a look...

Great app. I use it alot and I only found one minor problem. It keeps resetting if i get a message or notification, it could be Nice if that got fixed until then i just turn off Bluetooth an then everything is fine. I use a forerunner 235.

I love this application. But what would make it even better, if after the countdown, the time would count up again, inclusive frequent alarm, so that if one decides to go on, you know the total achived time. That would be awesome.

Thank you for your review and suggestion. I will give the idea some thought.

It does not work properly on Vivoactive 3. The timer keeps resetting and the settings menu does not fit the display which makes it cumbersome to navigate

Thanks for your feedback. I will try to investigate. I don't have Vivoactive 3, but will try in the latest simulator.

Amazing! This watch is insane, it also supports tracking my meditation sessions! Thank you grolschie for creating this excellent app! One more thing would make it really awesome - could the app also record the session as an activity?

Thank you, I will investigate an option to switch between minutes and seconds. In the meantime I have reduced the minimum time from 3 minutes to 1 minute.
