Non, il ne fonctionne pas avec le Garmin venu à ce moment.

Cool app ! How do you get the distance of waves caught to work ?

August 19, 2021

Unfortunate Garmin neutered a lot of native features, but it’s great for tracking overall time and path throughout the session (which is really all you need, just get out there and ride some waves!). With all the data that gets uploaded to Strava you can easily find out how long a wave was and when it happened based off the time stamps if you’re that curious. Great app!

July 31, 2021

Je ne comprends pas comment enregistrer les sessions. J’ai une vivoactive 3. Je ne peux avoir que le tracé et le temps total. Dommage

It's explained in the info for the app. Garmin have decided they will not allow you to see those stats with that watch, you will need to buy a more expensive watch unfortunately.

July 12, 2021

Great app! Main thing that interferes is (as he says in the description) the inability of an app to control the 'surfing' metrics (wave count, longest wave, etc.) in the summary line. I believe that also the missing location on the map when hovering over the graph in Surfing activities is a Garmin bug and not related to the app. Another suggestion: add more stats in the 'connect IQ' section - currently it shows only wave count and total time ridden. You can add L/R count, longest wave, fastest wave, etc.

Sbaglia clamorosamente il numero di onde e la distanza surfata. Da registrare

Did you try changing the settings as explained in the instructions?

July 8, 2021

Não instala no meu Forerruner 245, ele não carrega na aplicação, dessa forma não tenho como fazer uma melhor avaliação.

July 4, 2021

Great app. I use it every time I go surfing and is very accurate. While surfing it displays waves cought, session time and the time. I don't need much more then that. It has more info if you scroll to another screen but I prefer not to touch my watch when I'm surfing.

June 27, 2021

Very nice app, good job. However since today I have “ waiting for GPS” stuck on my watch ( 645 M) - how to resolve that? Thanks Im advance

Hey great app I love it. Please can you tell if there is a reason why calories burned in this app specifically won't update in myfitnesspal? Every other 3rd party party app adds calories burned just like the standard ones but for some reason the surf one won't. Thanks

That's weird, I think Garmin calculates calories based on heart rate and sport type (and some other factors). It's possible they don't calculate then for surfing unless you have a watch that they officially support surfing on (Garmin surf or Fenix 6 only)

June 13, 2021

The watch itself keeps track of my stats/waves caught, but when I sync to Garmin Connect it says always Say I caught nothing and has zero stats… which is unfortunate because then Surfline doesn’t show anything either because Surfline and my watch are synced.

It's also unfortunate you didn't read any of the instructions. Thanks for the 1 star review though, that's really helpful.

On 945 device waiting for GPS and nothing happens next

That's easy to fix, you could have emailed me for help instead of leaving a negative review and it would be working now. Never mind.

It's explained in the app description on the exact page you download the app from. it's literally the first paragraph. You didn't read it.. why?? Very disappointed..

Worked Great on my Vivoactive music 3, just purchased the Forerunner 935 and redownloaded the app to it and will test it Friday, fingers crossed it still works on this watch.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
