1. Problem: die Daten werden über einander angezeigt. 2. Problem: ich finde keine Möglichkeit, die App zu stoppen! Ich habe die Fenix 5 Plus - OS: 10.10

Thank you for your 1 star review. It gives me a lot of motivation for developing this app for free. You can press 2 seconts on the exit button to stop the app. I will test it on the Fenix 5 Plus emulator and fix it if needed but I only have an old Fenix 3 for testing

Great app. It would be nice if the stop button was only activate on the side of my Vivoactive, not on touchscreen display. May be colour tracking for speed on map too.

This app crashes every time I use it, I have tried re-downloading the app and restarting the watch and no luck. Is there anything I can do?

I installed the app on a 735XT. When we press the start button, the timer is running but is not displayed. Is there a special setting to do or an update ?

Thank you for the feedback. Feel free to add vibration to the countdown. https://github.com/dmrrlc/connectiq-sailing

Really useful app. Only just figured out how to use the countdown, but the speed and heading tracking during the race is great!

You habe to press on the "menu" button (2 seconds I guess) of your watch to start the countdown. Please try again and update your review if it works ;-)

On a Quatix 3; cant set the timer - it just remains on 0.

Je ne peux pas me servir du compte à rebours : il s’arrête au bout de 30 secondes et affiche IQ...

Pourriez-vous, svp, ré-essayer? Il y a eu une mise à jour entre temps. Pourriez-vous m'indiquer le modèle de votre montre afin que je puisse tester avec l'émulateur?

Whenever i start the countdown, after about 20 seconds "IQ!" appears on the screen and stays there. The app is virtually useless for racibg until this is fixed... vivoactiveHR

Not compatible with fenix 5. Knots and race time overlap making the display unreadable

It's great that from the countdown timer it goes directly into the knots. HOWEVER... I would love to options for a 5, 4, 3, 2 or a 1 minute timer start. As it is, you have to start the timer and then adjust the countdown minutes as it counting down. it doesn't pause. It's not possible to just start with a 2 minute start with out first starting with 5 minutes and then pressing the down button as it's counting down.

Just downloaded it to day but it won't run - does this app need to be connected to my phone to run? After 5 minute countdown watch face displays 'IQ!' If app can't run offline then it's a big disadvantage for those of us who want to engage in activities phone-free...

I like the functionality off the app but on my fenix 5, the speed and timer readouts overlap and are very close to the top of the screen making them unreadable. When this issue is resolved, it will be a great app.

when starting the application by using the Start-Button in the Menu of Applications it shows the Name "67GA2153" instead of "Sailing". Is it possible to fix this?

can you customise an app to use for off-shore.

What do you mean with off-shore? Wich functionality would you need?

Your idea is pretty good but digits must be bigger in order to be seen during the activity. One better layout may be one with heading in degrees and speed in knots with maximum dimension allowed. In a second screen, speed may be shown in the form of medium, current and max. Thanks

Hi Diego, Speed is already in knots and heading in degrees as well. I will try to make the speed digits bigger in a next release. Regards, Luc

starts difficult on fenix 3Don't understand the purpose of the icon showing digits after the icon. I'm pleased that finally there's this app but I encourage the makers to make it better! Better apps make users more happy

Hi EdwinWalhout, The digit indicates the GPS signal strength (from 0 to 4) the tracking is starting from an accuracy of 2. If I don't do so, the first points of the tracking are completely wrong. Regards, Luc
