Год пользовался, все было отлично. Основное чем пользовался - yacht start timer. Но после очередного обновления он перестал работать. В поле отображается прочерк

It seems that this app crashes and/or freezes my watch. Here is the scenario. I set "TotalAscent" to data field. I create new screen for activity with 4 datafield. I asign appbuilder to one of the fields. I start my run and during the activity it might be the first or the second time I try to switch to the screen with this field as it freezes. When I restart the device, this field is set to one of the devices stock field (no more appbuilder). Would like to change rating when it will work.

Used this great app to write a "complex" data field for my first backyard ultra trail race. It took a bit of playing around to get it the way I wanted (my problem, not the app) but worked great! Amazing flexibility and depth to the code!

Awesome app to create custom fields. Very well thought out!

Awesome app if you are a stats geek and live to play around with formulas. Can do so much more than standard Garmin data fields. Developer is top notch and super helpful. Thank you!

I wanted to creat "Power 5m" data field and AppBuilder was the perfect tool. THANKS!!

Super comprehensive and so many choices. I actually use one version as a reminder field on my first data page to start LiveTrack (since autostart never works for me). As the developer says, you have to use straight quotation marks (hint: on iOS, hold down on the single quote to get the variations and select the straight one which is usually the default - don't just hit the single quote as you will get a curly one which as the documentation states, does not work). Thank you!

You have a new fan! This app is brilliant! And how much work is in it - great! I really would like to donate some beers - but how? Today I developed my first formula - "Guess my Gear" for MTB Sram Eagle-XX1 - 12 gears - and it's working perfectly!!! THANKS!

I love it, absolutely brilliant! I'm using it on edge 520 & VA3M to calculate the gear length when cycling.

Thank you very much for the app. I just got a new forerunner 245 and I was wondering if you are going to make your apps available for this watch.

Thanks for the review. Appbuilder 5 is now available for FR245.

All the custom fields you've ever dreamt of and which cannot be found anywhere else, i.e.: + Elevation grade + Stride, power, pace, FTP... + Sprint detection + ETA Check here: https://ciq-appbuilder.blogspot.com/p/examples.html

Cool App! It makes the Edge 130 now powerful! But!! I do not find a clone for 4 Formulas for the Edge 130! Could you please add it....! Just to find for fenix and ege1030 :-(

Thanks for the review. If you're referring to Appbuilder 5+, which allows 4-6 formulas on the same screen, unfortunately Edge 130 does not have enough memory for this.

I really like this app., however I am having a hard time with the labels of the formulae below, post-run I keep seeing 'AppBuilder 5' as label for both on Garmin Connect. I would greatly appreciate any help with this. Thanks. recordsummary(sum(HR/60)/Distance,null,"Beats/Km"); recordlap(lapavg(HR)*LapTime/60/LapDistance,null,"Beats/Lap")

Thanks for the review and feedback! Sorry, the label in Garmin Connect is fixed when the app is uploaded to the store and cannot be changed at run time. For newer devices (e.g. VAHR, 935, Fenix 5, 645, VA3), the internal label in the FIT file is recorded properly (visible on some third-party sites/apps) and AppBuilder label should also be written to the summary in a separate field called "Label". This field may be displayed incorrectly as "0" on either the Garmin Connect website or the Garmin Connect Mobile app, due to a Garmin bug.

On the my garmin 130 I can not select more than one app. How can I use multiple clones of Appbuilder 5?

Great app. It's a "Must have". And the idea of adding clones for additinal usage is very good. Thanks for adding steps.

Amazing App ! Yes you need to invest some time but limitless what you can calculate and record on your Garmin watch. Very well done ! I just do read a training book on 'Running with Power' and this data field allows me to program all the formulas and monitor my running performance ! Very, very impressive work ! Thank you !

The best app for Garmin watches ! Many thanks ! Clairement la meilleure application pour les montres GARMIN. On peut tout faire avec. J'ai pu créer toutes les fonctions qui n'existaient pas sur ma montre TACTIX CHARLIE. Merci au développeur de cette application qui a toujours été à l'écoute pour améliorer l'application. Un seul mot : Bravo !!!

Great work! Was able to add datafields such as grade and climb/descent to Next and Destination and % complete on current course which I was missing on my devices. Thanks

This data field is so versatile I can't praise it high enough. In short you can literally take your watch and sensor data and modify it to your hearts content. Of course there are limits like the fairly simple language and watch memory, but you can still do a lot. You can even record down the results as your own data metrics. All you need to do is to learn a fairly simple language and a bit math. It really makes your watch much more versatile, and not sure if any other sports watch even offers similar capability thanks to this great app. Check you the examples page and forum discussion for examples :)

A great App in all versions, with fantastic dev support. Very flexible with loads of configuration options. Spend some time getting to know the syntax and it will open up lots of possible configurations
