Really good data field! You should make it an app! Which sport do you use this data field with?

A little bit tricky to install! but very good!! Thank you so much!

How can install this app? can you give me the instructions please?

Three stars only because you don't know how to install a DF in your device...? Thank you. A DF has to be inserted as a new IQ field in a sport activity as your choice. You set the new field in one field layout format and you search for the present DF. After that, you save the new activity created and exit it. Then, you enter the activities and launch the new one just created, and you will see the DF.

Connaître la hauteur de ses sauts.. un rêve des kitesurfeurs :-) j'ai un woo qui mesure cela mais c'est vrai que d'avoir cette donnée sur la montre serait top. Je n'ai pas encore testé mais si le calcul se fait par rapport à l'altitude ça ne peut pas fonctionner précieusement.Mais pour les champs de données c'est top. Il n'y a donc pas moyen avec la fenix 3 de se servir de l'accéléromètre de la montre?

Merci Florent pour votre commentaire. Malheureusement, comme indiqué dans ma précédente réponse, il n'est pas possible d'utiliser l'accéléromètre de la montre dans un datafield et ce, pour quelque modèle que ce soit, Garmin ne l'autorise pas dans son SDK. Il n'existe donc aucun autre moyen que celui de récupérer l'altitude en temps réel, avec les erreurs de fiabilité du GPS que cela entraîne, malheureusement. Certaines montres sont plus fiables que d'autres sur ce point. Le seul moyen serait peut-être de transformer ce datafield en application qui, elle, permettrait l'accès à l'accéléromètre, et encore, je ne suis pas certain que cela résoudrait totalement le problème. Lorsque j'aurai un moment, il faudra que je m'y colle pour voir ce que cela donne, on verra.

Hello again , the idea behind it is great , but the data field is 9 out of 10 wrong , it always gives like jumps of 30 meters or even 90 meters , I am puting 5 stars because it works on small jumps like 1-2 meters but once you go further up its all wrong data , I am curios how do you calculate the jumps ?

Hello Rebetiko and thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, we can not access accelerometer and sensors in real time within a data field so, I can only catch the altitude read by the GPS altimeter. The only two ways could be: change the GPS mode to see if it's better with another tracking mode (GPS + GLONASS for example) or, transform this DF in an application which allows the use of sensors (accelerometer). I have to think about that possibility otherwise I can not change anything in this data field to compensate the lacks of the GPS accuracy, and I am sorry for that.

Hi there , the app is absolutely brilliant but I will give it 4 stars for these reasons : 1. Some session of my kite it dosent save at all any jump 2. Today went kiting jumped 5.6 meters and it showed 53 meters 3. The other went kiting did a 8.6 jump on woo sports device while wearing the fenix and in the fenix it showed 12,3 ( maybe because the woo is on lower and the watch not ??! ) But its a great idea and a great app ps: It would be great if you could add all the jumps ie not just the biggest jump but all of them and the minute that they are made . Keep on the good work mate and thank you , next week I will buy you a paypal beer :D

Hello Rebetiko, and many thanks for your comment. I don't practice kitesurfing but windsurfing mostly on flat water so, I can't really test the height of jumps. Garmin devices are not intended to be used for calculating altitude during a short or very short period so, it is quite challenging to calculate and obtain this value. I will do my best to optimize the formula next in the future. About your suggestion, with this new version 1.11, you can now see all your jumps on a graph in your profile activities. And thanks in advance for the cold beer );

Rally nice App. It works well. It would be awesome to have the statistics integrated with the wind speed of the spot.

Hello Andrea and thanks for your comment. Your suggestion is a good idea but not very useful for this kind of data field that you are supposed to use 'in situ' when you are already on the spot. There are some good apps for checking wind conditions (Windfinder, Windguru) before, and I prefer to keep the remaining memory space for adding useful functionalities.

Champs de données très complet et lisible. Etant "Kiteu" c'est un un réel manque de ne pas avoir d'appli sur ce type de sport. Au moins ce vide est comblé pas ce datafield. Merci ! (à quand l'appli autonome ? ;-))

Tried to install the app several time, got it on my fenix5 (visible on garmin express) but never visible on the app on the watch itself :-(

This is not an app nor a widget but a data field so, as written in your device manual, you need to insert it in an activity (like sailing or a new one you just created yourself) in order to see and use it. So, before posting a poor rating and/or comment, please check and read the manual on how to install and use datafields in your watch. Thank you.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
