Great for the Fenix 6s, which does not have Indoor Walk.

Using this on a Garmin VivoActive3 and with a few false starts, it seems to fit the bill -- like another reviewer, I'm surprised this is the only indoor walk widget or app out here. I'm having trouble getting stride length right in my VA3, and also, I just lost a whole walk (I guess I swiped when I should have pressed the button? Not sure). I'm confident I will figure it out, and it certainly is better than the Garmin native insistence that only running matters!

Installed today and tried treadmill (Kettler Run 7), worked good, just there was difference in distance. It showed 300 meters less than treadmill (total walked in this case 3,21 km). Suppose treadmill has it correct. Step lenght in my Fenix 6 is set up and callibrated on this treadmill.

Remember all that's used to count is what your watch sees, and if you're holding on to something, the watch can miss things. The same can happen if your pushing a stroller or cart in a store, holding on the the rails on the tread mill, waling a dog or using a hiking pole.

Wish this connected to the HRM Tri to record steps rather than relying on my watch. This way I could be holding a book or have my watch sitting on the desk next to treadmill and still get steps could from my HRM Tri.

This isn't possible.

Great app! Is there a way to get a save and calibrate option similar to treadmill run?
October 21, 2020, jim_m_58
Sorry, there isn't
September 22, 2020 | Version 0.17
Please add this to the Fenix 6. There isn’t an indoor walking option on the Fenix 6. There’s only indoor track or treadmill which both log as runs. I had this on my 735 XT!

I've added the f6 devices in version 0.18
September 2, 2020 | Version 0.17
Great app! Searched and installed it 5 min before IW-workout. Any plans to add the possibility to show the heart rate as primary information (with BIG numbers) FR235?
July 7, 2020 | Version 0.17
Great app! Any plans to add to Fenix 6 series?
July 8, 2020, jim_m_58
As devices like the f6 and 945 already have indoor walking as a native app, I probably won't be adding them to this app
January 29, 2020 | Version 0.17
Great app!, Please upgrade to fr945
January 21, 2020 | Version 0.17
I've used this app for 3 years. Surprised that it's still the only option for indoor walking, but it's a compliment to the app developer that he filled this niche
July 20, 2019 | Version 0.17
Results show about 50% of actual walk. Tredmill showed 5k which is spot on with what i would expect. App results were a little over 2k.

If you are holding on to the treadmill bars that will impact this, as will what you have set as your stride length in Garmin connect.
July 11, 2019 | Version 0.17
Only used this once on my Fenix 5 and Garmin Footpod, did a 1 mile walk and it was pretty much spot on with the treadmill.
April 24, 2019 | Version 0.17
Works great. I have 235. May be a little off on distance inside, but close enough.All the reviews on the steps, the watch counts the steps, even when I had the Vivioactive 3 and it had the Walking as an activity, the watch counted the steps, same as now. So if you want to records walks, I recommend this, at least for the Garmin 235. ( Make sure you swing your arms natural inside or on treadmill!)
January 6, 2019 | Version 0.17
Tried it on a treadmill - treadmill indicated 2.06 miles, the app recorded .93 miles! The app also indicated that I burned more total calories than the treadmill. I walked with heart monitor but no foot pod. Also, the font is so small it very difficult to read, especially while walking.
January 6, 2019, jim_m_58
The watch needs to see your steps, so if you are holing on to the rails, that could impact your distance. Try keeping it in your pocket.
Also, which watch?
November 22, 2018 | Version 0.17
superb application, at least for my fenix3 hr
October 25, 2018 | Version 0.17
Finally, an indoor walking apps! Garmin miss this. Thanks for creating this one.
February 28, 2018 | Version 0.16-upd2
Will the app work for shipboard walking? I suspect steps will be fine but distance will be way out.
February 28, 2018, jim_m_58
It doesn't use GPS, so I think distance will be fine, as it's basing that on the number of steps. But I haven't tried it.
February 14, 2018 | Version 0.16-upd2
Save your time, unfortunately it doesn't work. I own a 735xt and I tried this on my treadmill... NOT EVEN CLOSE! No foot pod or nothing.
February 14, 2018, jim_m_58
What isn't working for you? Please use "Contact developer", as it could be something like what you expect a FP to do for you.
December 7, 2017 | Version 0.16-upd
I appreciate this application. Unfortunatetly, it does not count the steps of a foot pod. Please support it!
December 7, 2017, jim_m_58
24/7 Steps come from the watch and not the footpod. On something like a treadmill, make sure your watch sees the steps, as you'll likely miss a bunch if you hold on to the rails.
May 10, 2017 | Version 0.15
This app is great. It does exactly what you'd expect, and does it perfectly. Garmin dropped the ball by not adding a "Walking" activity to many of its watches. This lightweight app is the solution! Also, the developer's support is incredible. He's very accessible and quick to make improvements based on user feedback. Couldn't possibly ask for more out of a FREE app. Thanks a ton.
April 20, 2017 | Version 0.14
The speed and steps are WAY off.
May 7, 2017, jim_m_58
I just display what the firmware tells me, What watch, do you have a foot pod, etc?

I used to use this app but lately it has not been recording the steps I've taken indoors correctly. Today it was off by 4000 at least. It showed 2800 after 35 minutes. Yesterday it showed 6800 and day before 6300.

The distance and speed are way off.
May 7, 2017, jim_m_58
That's what the FW is reporting and I display. What watch, using a foot pod, etc?
April 25, 2016 | Version 0.10-upd
sucks, i'm really angry because i saw my trainings results just wont be stored. They are neither visible on Connect nor on my watch. Really disappointed because i basically like the face etc.
