Do you see the possibility of adding integration with Final Surge?

Final Surge, though initially agreeing to allow me to access and download their workouts, have failed to follow through. There is no more I can do at this point.

Seems to work OK, but it also looks like (Stryd) power data is not written to the fit file. That would be a pity...

Thanks for your review. Stryd is fully integrated and running power data is imported into Stryd's Powercentre.

Thank you for your answer. The “bug” with miles/km was solved with 7.1 version.
It tested this kind of expression : ru pa (5 min, 1) + (1 km, 1), with duration variation : works well !
I believe it’s not possible to change metric within a workout expression, but for a VAHR user your app is just great for intervals workout. Once again thank you for your app!

Congratulations for your app which is great!
I use or today for the first time and I have one remark and two question.
First it seems that even if you use km in the line command (ru km hr (1,1)) the app understands miles (the lap was 1,6 km and I found the km a bit long !).
Then I’m not sure if I have to put the pace threshold in min/km or in min/miles.
And I would like to program complex workouts using ru min hr and ru min pa in the same expression : seems not to be possible.
Thank a lot.

Thanks for great review!
I was unable to reproduce the miles / kilometres bug. Do you have the latest version of the app (7.1)? If so, can you check the exact format of the expression entered and send it to me so that I can check it at my end. I tried what you entered above (without the external brackets) but it seems to work OK on my system.
You can override the default duration metric specified in the workout prefix by postfixing with the duration specifier in the phase description (if that makes sense!)
ru km pw (5 min, 1-2)
I have implemented a prefix before the range specification in the phase description to override the default metric but this is in beta. At present it only works in raw because of the hassle / memory implication of having to load all activity and metric combinations from settings (12).
The pace unit (mins per km or mins per mile) is read from the user settings on the device and similarly distances are expressed as per user settings. The workout syntax merely specifies the "duration" of the phase in min, km or mi (internally all calculations are in metres)

From the description it looks like this is the App I've been looking for, but sorry, for me the simple example is not enough to create an own workout. Is the syntax documentet anywhere, e.g. abbreviations of metrics, how to use fixed values eg. for pace instead of zones etc.
A simple documentation or a list with more example, and this could be the best App (for me) for my Garmin.
