The web administration app is easy to use, one can configure various workouts. It has some limitations though (e.g. exercise name length and number of workouts on the watch - probably related to limitations of certain watch models but it could differentiate among them). The watch app is not working well on my Garmin Venu. When Venu turns off the display after 15 secs to save the battery, the timer alarm is not triggered at the end of the exercise. Only when you activate the screen again it is triggered immediately. I would still give this app 5 stars if developers were responsive and would react to reported issues. They have not replied even once after my three attempts to contact them with product requests and the issue above - neither via their website nor via Garmin IQ Store. For this reason, I have cancelled the subscription.

Does not work anymore since today. Was working fine and now suddenly does not start on same device. So can't use my paid subscription at the moment.

I tried several times to download it but it would not open on my Garmin. It says that it has been downloaded but when I press to initiate it my time mode goes on.

The best gym app in the store! Very flexible, It took some time to get used to the app commands but now that I grasped it, it makes a lot of sense.

Terrible feedback! I tried this app, it’s too complicated and I didn’t like it. I asked about a refund 2 times by email, but no answer. Also, the refund button doesn’t exist how it said in the instruction. So this app doesn’t worth a penny.

Have been using now for over a month. Twice a week. Combined wit running. Works great. Will be good when I start traveling Agatacristi I will have my workout on my wrist wherever I go. Make sure not to check the GPS option if doing a gym workout as it will show you were running all over. For combined gym and run work out, record the gym and then do a separate recording for the run. Works great and is easy. Will definitely renew subscription.

Meh. Way way way too complex. I still can’t work out if there are 4 different apps (builder, timer, etc...) or if there are just 4 menus of the same app. And even after fiddling with the app 15 min, I still don’t know how to change activities... there are only 3 buttons on my watch, I shouldn’t really have to go to an online tutorial for that!

The best Gym app in the store! The web site provides a very clever way to configure the workout, The pro versions worths every cent. Thanks!

How does this app accommodate treadmill and body weight exercises? There is no option to program either and therefore accurately record activity correctly.

The app looks good. Unfortunately the navigation seems not to work properly when using a Venu: 1. It seems not to be possible to open the in-app menu to select a workout 2. When going back and forth the exercise by swiping up/down exercises seem to be skipped.

Very happy so far. The Garmin Strength app could have been great but it consistently crashes and has a few other issues and it is unclear to me if Garmin will put enough effort into it to make it usable. So I had to find another app. This one does exactly what I need: A web app to program my routine and the watch downloads and steps though that routine. It seems to balance features and complexity which is quite impressive because making a cross platform programmable workout app for a tiny screen is not easy. The documentation is very good but you need to take time to read it and play with the app outside the gym. Plan to invest ~1 hr learning how to use it and another ~0.5hr programming your workout. If you dont like investing that kind of time, stick to pen and paper. Only downside is that it only allows 20 steps in the program and my routine is 22 or 24.

Bin eigentlich mit der App sehr zufrieden / Allerdings währe es für mich von Vorteil wenn mehrere Übungen pro Workout eingegeben werden könnten, ich muss jetzt für ein 30 Min Hantelworkout 3 verschiedenen Programmieren statt die 30 Minuten in eines 1 Stern Abzug / Noch ein Stern Abzug da ich diese Frage warum das so ist gestellt habe und keine Antwort bekommen habe. Ein zweites mal gefragt und gebeten vor der 30 Tage Geld zurück Garantie zu antworten und wieder keine Antwort bekommen. / Fazit ; App ist gut aber der Service ist schlecht beziehungsweise nicht vorhanden.

Very good application, which allows to plan all strength trainings. You might plan all trainings in advance than app helps to follow that and 'advice' you about next exercise and timings ... it's really helpful. I found one issue with Garmin synchronization. It sends back information of the strength training to the Garmin connect, but with some limitations. The main info like calories, time, avg hbr are there, but detailed one like particular exercise type, number of sets, volume, etc. are missed.

Amazing App!! It is great at the gym and it keeps me on my toes encouraging me to get to the end of the training session!
