Step Roller (writes FIT data too)


This data field displays up to 6 different step-related values in a rolling fashion (Daily Steps, Step Goal, Step Goal %, Steps to go [until goal], Activity Steps and Lap Steps). The default delay between each value is 5 seconds, but you can configure this between 1 and 10 seconds.</p><p>It also saves activity lap and session step counts to your activity's FIT file so they can be seen in Connect and other services that support custom FIT fields. Optionally it can record every noted increase in activity step data to the FIT file, so it can be displayed in a chart in Connect - this could make your FIT file much larger, so it is off by default.</p>

What’s New

I have been asked about support for older devices, such as the FR630. Unfortunately these devices have less memory for data fields and even after various optimisations I have been unable to avoid this data field from causing an out of memory error on this generation of device.</p><p></p><p>1.1.6:</p><p>Added support for a couple of 260x260 resolution devices.</p><p></p><p>1.1.5:</p><p>An attempt to support newer 240x240 devices</p>

This has been my go-to data field. I wish I could have it again in F6PRO

I've had a go at adding support for your device. Please let me know via the "Contact Developer" link if you have any problems with it. It may look better in some field positions than others, especially if you do lots of steps and hit big numbers!

On vivoactive 3, the title and the values are centered vertically, so alligned on the same horizontal line. This makes the label impossible to read.

The actual device must be behaving differently to the simulator. If you have time, please check if the field has the same problem with different layouts (1 field, 3 field etc) and let me know via the "Contact Developer" link.

Best datafield on Connect bar none. - can alter settings - most importantly, activity steps is shown in the Connect app! Well done!
