I imported my EU covid-19 certification from file. My Forerunner 935 shows the QR code but it is not recognized as valid. It's a good idea but it does not work.

Im reinstall app in the mobile phone, and lose premium status for which pay

Developer Reply
January 25, 2022, PassHolder

Hi Regul! Once you reinstall, it resets all your configurations. Thus, as the app doesn't know your status, you should become Premium. Once you click on becoming Premium, Google will recognize you have already purchased the Premium, and PassHolder will grant your status again. In the future, remember we are at your service at

Hello Davide, We are happy to see that you are eager to use our app on your iPhone. Unfortunately, we don't have an IOS app yet release as it is waiting for acceptance. In the meantime, it is only available for Android.

I managed to import the EU Vaccine certificate from the pdf file and to transfer it on the phone. Th QR code was imported corectly, but the text information is scrambled, both on the Android App and the watch.

Developer Reply
September 26, 2021, PassHolder

Hi Catalin! We are happy to have you as one of our users! By your message, we understand that you have imported it from a PDF or an image. Unfortunately, phones do not have the computational capacity to understand full context text, and the limited Passbook format won't allow long text to be in the front fields. For that PassHolder, reorders the field to fit it as best, but you can always edit them in the edit page of the pass and place them in the correct position. Once you edit it, you can export it and save it on your device to use whenever needed.

September 26, 2021 | Version 2.0.1

Le nombre de format de xode est limité (pas de EAN13, ITF, EAN 39....) A quand un complément de formats? Importante consommation électrique au niveau de la montre, la batterie fond très rapidement

Developer Reply
September 26, 2021, PassHolder

Hi J-No! PassHolder follows the Passbook standard that allows for QR, Aztec, PDF417, and Code128. (And many EAN can follow inside the 128 formats). Anyways, we take note of your request for other formats. Concerning the battery, it is a situation that we have taken very seriously, and Passholder uses the low possible battery. But synchronizing data with the phone (despite which data or app) is quite stressful for Garmin watches. We encourage you to check your watch's setup and see if any other app's usage is draining that battery. Moreover, as explained, repeatedly synchronizing the data may consume quite a battery; if you have been testing our app for the first time to see how it works, please use it for some time as you would typically do. You would see how the battery lasts as usual.

First of all, this app should be advertised as a payment app given the limited options that you have for free. But that is not the issue. After the update, it crashes every single time. I have a Vivoactive 4.

Developer Reply
September 22, 2021, PassHolder

Hi Julio! We are glad that you enjoy our app. About the advertising of the application, PassHolder in its free version allows you to synchronize your main pass, and with Premium you can synchronize the entire list. It has never been our intention to hide this fact. Regarding the synchronization, on September 21 we encountered a synchronization problem with the Garmin Connect app (which serves as a bridge to the PassHolder apps).Now, it seems to be solved at its end, if you could check if it is working that would be great. Also remind you that we are at your disposal at to solve any doubt you may have.

Hello Louis! PassHolder Android is a pkpass/phpass reader that connects with PassHolder Garmin companion to show the codes associated. Indeed, you can also create a pass by scanning a QR. If you are experiencing some problems, please, contact us at we will be glad to help you.

Hello, the app does only show Covid19 cert details and the text "show code" on my forerunner 55. But I wasn't able to display the qr code. Any advice? Thank you, Christoph

Developer Reply
September 19, 2021, PassHolder

Hello Christoph! While it is true that our app was limited by capabilities, and certain devices could not run it as is the case of the Forerunner 55, our development team has finally released the new version 2.0.0. You should be able to run it on your watch. If you could try it, and leave us your impressions, it would be great. On the other hand, remember that we are at your disposal at Best regards.

Funziona bene ma la comprensione della configurazione è così flessibile da risultare complicata (anche se le impostazioni di base sono alla portata di tutti). Ottimo il fatto che riconosce il Green Pass per la normativ anti-Covid19. Una stella in meno del massimo perchè vorrei usare il widget invece dell'app, spero di vederlo in futuro. ----------------------------- It works fine but the understanding of the configuration is so flexible that it results complicated (even if the basic settings are within everyone's reach). Excellent is the fact that it recognizes the Green Pass for the anti-Covid19 regulation. One star less than the maximum because I would like to use the widget instead of the app, I hope to see it in the future.

Hello Davide! We are very happy to see that you are using our app and you are finding it useful. Also, we note your input concerning the settings text, and we will look to make it more accessible. Moreover, concerning the Widget, it is ture that would be a nice feature that we are also considering. But due to the limited actions in a widget, we are having some trouble getting the best of it, instead of the app. But be certain we are working on that.

Complimenti per il lavoro fatto! Spero che i prossimi aggiornamenti includeranno anche un wigjet (per Vivoactive 4) senza consumare troppa batteria. L'unico difetto è che per sincronizzare occorre sempre avviare inizialmente Garmin connect (prima di avviare PassHolder-Premium). Altrimenti il bluetooth non viene letto. Grazie e buon lavoro!

Hi Georgi, We're very happy to have such positive users like you who enjoy our application! Also, we really appreciate your suggestions which will certainly be taken into account by our team and we hope you can enjoy them soon. About the sync with Garmin Connect, it's true that it should be running as all the watches's app sync with it, but if it's running in the background it should be fine. With that, we warm welcome you to PassHolder.
