this site shows it as compatible with my Vivoactive 4. Yet when I try to download it from Garmin, it says it's not compatible with my device! How can I get this to be labeled as compatible with my Vivoactive 4 so I can download it??

The power data provided by Stryd is not currently stored in the fit file. Would it be possible to include them?

The session recording is not part of Genius Wrist's apps. It is a function performed by the watch itself. The apps only send commands to start, pause, resume, save or discard an activity. The device does the sensor data acquisition and recording. Be aware Garmin set restrictions to what information is recorded depending on the sport and type of app. For example: - the foot pod is ignored in cycling activities - cadence is not calculated in swimming sessions - Only NATIVE Garmin's apps can capture stroke data in swimming activities. - Most devices will only write power data to the fit file during cycling exercises. - The information from the internal temperature sensor is not recorded from inside a connect IQ app. The list of restrictions vary depending on the watch model, and Garmin may change it anytime in new firmware releases.

After a seemingly endless search and trialling virtually everything on the store, paid and free, for a way to build kettlebell tabata workouts, running intervals including warmups, cooldowns etc, gym sessions and just plain boring cardio sessions, I stumbled across this app (and the companion gym genious) and was really pleased what it has to offer. I decided to go for the bundle license and after the initial learning curve, the workouts and sessions you can build with these apps upgrade my vahr to one of the top of the range devices weighing in at 2x, 3x, the price. I think at USD16 a year well worth it. I think it should be at #1 for fitness apps by a long way!

Congratulations! It's the missing application in my vivoactive hr. Suggestions / requests for resources: - Sending 04 trainings and not 03 (usually the number of training sessions per week of most athletes). - View the training details on the watch. Currently there is only the option to "select training", I would like to click on the training and visualize its steps. - Language option of the site for Portuguese. - Android application to build the training. Forgive any language errors. I do not speak English, I've built the text with google translate.

Crazy flexible and yet improving! Easy or complex intervals etc is a breeze to set up on the website.

Just what is needed for my Vivoactive. It seems to be very intuitive and easy to set up. The demo version is very limited (maybe a little too limited) - perhaps a time limited version would be better. I've only used the demo version, but will certainly be considering upgrading.
