Great app. Don't mind the negative reviews, just read the documentation. The app relies on AutoNotification to intercept the notifications this app generates on the phone. A bit hacky, but it may be the only way to make this work with Garmins SDK. I would not use a Garmin watch if it had not been for this app.

December 21, 2021 | Version 4.2.0

It works and very useful. Thank you.

July 24, 2021 | Version 4.2.0

Garmin Edge 1030, I always get a link (e.g. https: // open menu). And the link doesn't work. KEKW.

Love all the Tasker* apps - many thanks. I have one request but it may not be possible. I would *really* like for tasker to be able to update the menu items so that they could be geo-relevent. Any idea if this is feasable?

December 20, 2020 | Version 4.1.1

Great app for my fenix 6 ! I would love this feature too: setting to allow watch to go back to watch face after button press.

October 21, 2020 | Version 4.1.1

Works as advertised. Bit of a hassle to set up but that's ok. The design of the main screen could do with an upgrade. Would be nice to have the task labels located at their respective button. Also the clock on that screen is hard coded 12h mode is it..? Confusing when it shows a different time than the watch faces... I guess I'll just configure it to go straight to the menu screen.

Potentially could be a very useful tool. But both of the codes that you suggested will crash in garmin connect. So didn't work!

June 2, 2020 | Version 4.1.1

When I click the menu button on my Garmin Edge Explore, I always get a link (e.g. https: // open menu). And the link doesn't work. I want to choose between the music but it doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong? 

March 15, 2020 | Version 4.1.1

Works great. Just got a Fenix 6 and love this thing.. Quick feature request: setting to allow watch to go back to watch face after button or menu press.

After the latest update of the Garmin Connect app, the Tasker app started working again! Awesome! Five stars!

October 20, 2019 | Version 4.1.0

Application stoped work with the latest version of Connect IQ on my vivoactive 3 device. :(

connect 4.24.1 completely locks up when I launch a task from Tasker app on garmin watch. I don't see a notification and the connect app turns unresponsive. Had to revert to a lower connect app.

August 18, 2019 | Version 3.00

ich möchte ein Profil mit tasker das automatisch eingeschaltet wird. Oder ein Task das ausgeführt werden soll. Meine Idee ist wenn ich schlafe soll mein Handy Lautlos werden und um auch sicher zu gehen das ich wirklich schlafe wollte ich das meine Garmin Uhr an Tasker mein Herzfrequenz AUTOMATISCH sendet wenn es zb. weniger als 80 mal pro Minute schlägt und das zb. länger als 5 Minuten. Die Frage ist wäre so etwas möglich mit der Garmin Fenix oder einer anderen Garmin Uhr. Ich würde mich sehr freuen wenn jemand darauf eine Antwort hat. Die eigentliche Frage ist kann man sowas in der art mit Herzfrequenz programmieren mit einer Garmin watch und Android Handy?

Seems potentially cool but it's very confusing to set up. I've read everything on the support forum and I still can't get it working on my Fenix 5s.

I have posted new instructions. If still having issues please email via the contact developer button for more help.

November 11, 2017 | Version 2.80

If try to assign a task to the back button, the app crashes. In settings it says the back task is not available in VA3, but I have a VA HR. Is it a big, or some trick that I miss? Everything else works fine.

November 1, 2017 | Version 2.71

Thanks a lot ... after update it is possible to choose other positions in menu. Left / right swipe works OK for Vivoactive now. Could you also update widget version? Thanks in advance Greg

I will get the widget updated tomorrow. Thanks for the feedback earlier and sorry for the bug. My watch doesn't have a touchscreen so sometimes I miss things in my testing.

October 31, 2017 | Version 2.60

Hello ...How do you scroll through menus to select tasks (Vivoactive) I can trigger only first position in menu?

Developer Reply
November 1, 2017, cthielker

You can swipe left or right to scroll. I just pushed a big fix.

VaHR now works great, only i hope to find alternative to notification listener/auto notification.

Vivoactive hr tasker now is very wired, the text is too big and hides the time behind the labels.

Developer Reply
October 14, 2017, cthielker

I'll take a look at it Monday. It should be easy to fix, I probably messed up the auto width function for the Vivoactive HR. I have to check each device when I make changes and sometimes don't get to checking the ones I don't own

I am rating this Good just because I liked the concept but I am still not sure how to use this. Can some one help me with this ?

September 27, 2017, cthielker should help you out. If that doesn't help please send me an email I can work with you on it (use the contact developer link).

Good concept but I can't figure out how to use it. The xml file says that it contains nothing.

You need to log in to the Garmin forums to be able to download attachments from them. IF you are still having issues send me an email from the contact developer option and I can help you out.

Does not do a damn thing

August 31, 2017 | Version 1.60

The application adds a whole new level of value to my Fenix 3! It's pure awesomeness to be able to trigger Tasker tasks from the watch. My use for this is for driving, where I want to control phone calls/messaging, Sygic navigation and my music player. Some potential improvements for me would be: - Reduced font size, or dynamic font size for longer named tasks - Ability to remove the "Enter", "Up", "Down" etc labels, including the additional acctions for the "Back" button - Similar to the multiple clicks on the "Back" button, the addition of different tasks to double "Enter", double "Up", tripple "Up" etc. xD

I should be able to add the option to remove labels next week, I don't have a computer on the weekend to work on the app. I may be able to implement the dynamic font size, I've done it on one of my watch faces, will look into adding. The double/triple button presses wouldn't work for my use case of a TV remote where I use up and down for fast-forward and rewind and press multiple times, but I will consider it as a configurable option in the future if more people are interested. Configurable options like that get messy in the code with my limited SW knowledge.

August 24, 2017 | Version 1.54

Amazing app, must have for android users. Now i can control my Philips Hue and the Nest from my forerunner! Keep it up with great work..

May 23, 2017 | Version 1.52

Works great! But, I recommend you add an option to hide from watch app unused button/task selections. The watch screen looks so busy with all of the other possible selections. For example, I only use this app for one task, which I have assigned to "Select". Hence, I would like to be able to hide "Up:", "Down:", and "Next:"
