Meditate ist gut. Man kann verschiedene Zeiten mit verschiedenen Farben einstellen. Ich hatte das Programm auf meiner Uhr „Vivoactive 3“. Plötzlich funktioniert die App nicht mehr. Wir hatten sie deinstalliert, dann wieder installiert, sie ging wieder, aber nur kurz. Keine Ahnung was da los ist. Ich hätte gerne vom Entwickler eine Info, wie ich die App wieder aktivieren kann.

Nice, I like how you can set presets and interval alerts. However, I use this app so I can do some deep breathing to calm down before I go to sleep. You should add another mode “Breathwork” so you can set breathing modes and even set a breathing animation (like a circle that grows and shrinks to indicate inhale and exhale times). It isn’t that convenient to set up tons of interval alerts. Perhaps on next update?

It's free and does basically everything I want. I wish it didn't automatically upload to strava as a cardio activity, and I'm not so sure if the connect IQ stats it gives you are BS or not. The stress IQ % (which may be completely useless?) you can only see once on the screen but you can't see that data on the watch itself until you sync and look on the desktop app. Not a big deal - again because I don't really think this metric actually is worthwhile. The main thing is it creates a "meditaiton" object in garmin connect that you can search for and see trends in your heart rate over time, which is all I really wanted. Would be nice to be able to track average heart rate during meditation over time on a graph but you can at least export CSV and do it yourself. So for the low cost of free - this is definitely worth a download I highly recommend it. The stuff I don't like about it I can just ignore ultimately it gives me the automated data collection that I need so I can parse and analyze w/ excel later if I choose to do so. Thanks for sharing!!!

Really like this app, only suggestion would be a ‘pause’ function for when you are interrupted and need to briefly stop meditating

Love the app, however, I wish I could use my heart rate chest strap. My wrist heart rate is off my 10bpm from my chest strap.

Excellent app Started using this a few days ago and Ito is great. More than just a timer. It has a great ‘vibe pattern’ feature.

Excellent app! I love it. May I ask why the activity is registered as aerobics/cardio in garmin connect? It would be great if it were fall under "breath exercises" instead

Excellent for tracking HR and HRV during meditation. Would love to see customisable breathing practices added.

this app is excellent and convenient ! , I'm using it everyday in terms of improvements my suggestions : - is there any possibility to do a backup of the different settings and profiles - for each profile can we have a possibility to define a title different than "Meditating"

Good app. But does the GPS come on? I noticed a bit of battery drain. Not much point having GPS meditating.

Thank you for the feedback! The app doesn't use the GPS. This is caused by a bug in the firmware of Vivoactive 3. More details on the thread bellow. The more users complain there the better chance of Garmin fixing it. https://forums.garmin.com/forum/into-sports/health-fitness/vivoactive-3-aa/1317469-wrong-gps-tracking-in-vivoactive-3-firmware-3-3

Very good and decent app but it'd be better if you remove the gear selecting because we wont wear any kind of shoes when meditating.

Thank you for your feedback! By gear selecting do you mean configuring the session settings or the view when meditation is in progress? For the meditation in progress view the arc represents the time elapsed, the small colored marks represent the time when interval alert will trigger - explained in the description of the app.
