Thank you for this must have Data field!!! Felt always ashamed when someone asked me during hiking about the steps. With this Data field must not be ashamed anymore... Nontheless hoe the heck such expensive "Sportwatches" should have this Data field in the Default settings. Kudos to the coder!

Die Schritte zeigt es zwar in der aktuellen Benutzung mit an, aber die Schrittzähler wird nicht bei der gesamt azswertung nicht mehr, schade Fenix3 HR

Sorry to hear that you do not see the steps in the post workout overview. However, it is because of a bug in the Fenix 3 firmware (as I mentioned in the description), and, thus, I am not able to fix it. Thank you for your understanding!

I just want to take a moment and say thank you for creating this - and +1 for making it publicly available via Github. As an aspiring Garmin developer it helps GREATLY when knowledgeable developers post their work for others to learn from. Thank you!

Great app!!! And steps show correctly.

Shows the steps in a datafield and saves the results (unlike other datafields for steps)

Really a good data field that Garmin ought to have included as stock. Why they haven't is strange, so great you've done us this favor.

Many, many thanks for updating your Datafield! It works now on my Forerunner 245 Music. Because Garmin has not included steps within an activity, this is a "must have" Datafield for me ;)

I'm glad that you enjoy using the datafield.

Works good, I use it for Indoor Cycling but I suspect that it is decreasing my vo2max values. I will stop use it and try. Thanks!

Add foot pod support to this app. Calculating steps from the footpod is more accurate. E.g. when you walk with a stroller, when you are wearing some bags. Number of steps can be calculated from the foot pod data.

Thank you for your rating and for the excellent idea. I will consider your suggestion and if it is feasible I will implement it in the next version. :)

Can't figure out how to get the activity steps to show in Connect.any way to help?

Developer Reply

Did you add the datafield to the selected activity? It can be done in the activity settings. After adding "Steps to FIT" Connect IQ field to the activity, it should show up on the selected page, and the number of steps are automatically saved into the FIT file during the entire session. After saving the activity, this data appears in the Connect page under details tab. Here is a video which explains how to set up custom datafields: https://youtu.be/LgcZQzhRw-A If the problem still exists, please contact me using the "Contact Developer" option. I will try to find out what the problem causes.

Amazing data field. Exactly what I wanted and needed. I love how not only can I see the steps as I'm doing my workout as a data field, but afterwards when reviewing my workout on my phone it is listed as well. Truely amazing. Well done.

Thanks for this!!!! Can't believe Garmin no longer does it

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
