works great! a nice addition (Fenix7) would be to be able to access the codes without having to "start an activity" but from the "Glances" menu. This would be very useful so one doesn't need to end an ongoing activity, but just pause and resume later

Shows Crunch Fitness barcode for about a half second than disappears before I can scan it. Retarded useless app.

Would be great to have an option to control the brightness, like an overall one and an override per barcode, use case: QR codes are almost impossible to be read by the iPad front-face camera, its automatic gain is not adjusting correctly for the very bright OLED screen, causing image bleeding.

How should I know which pass to select if I only see the numbers in the list... ridiculously bad

September 18, 2023 | Version 2.0.8

Hello, i change my Fenix 7x to Epix gen2 pro and now i cant find this app in the store. Please update app for this watch model! Very good app!

Nutzlos! Zeigt den Inhalt des Codes und nicht die Labels in der Liste der Codes auf der Uhr an.. was für ein lächerlicher Fehler..

Developer Reply

Hi Julianus! When you see the information about your pass, just tap on it, as suggested by the app, to see your Code on your watch. The main list is for you to select the one you want to show, plus additional information.

Le QR code affiché sur la montre est différent de celui de l'appli pour aucune raison.

Developer Reply
February 22, 2023, PassHolder

Hi Dany, the codes are optimized to the resolution of your devices. It may be that on your phone you can display more data for codes like QR or PDF417 (which uses error correcting pixels adding more data) since you have more resolution. But that on the watch must be reduced to fit your pixel size. The encoding within the code is the same and the scanners should have no problems. (It just may take a little longer to detect the code as there is less data encoded, but it's a matter of a couple of seconds to keep the watch steady). Remember to visit for any other questions.

February 14, 2023 | Version 2.0.6

Maybe I made something wrong....but on my epix2 I installed the App but it is not possible to install at the watch ... on the Phone the App is installed but on the watch it is not possile to install... I pay all the necessary fees but not working...mayby my foutl so 3 of 5 stars ...pls support

Hi tckkat, we are sorry to see you are facing problems. But do you have problems installing the app in you watch? Is that a problem of the PassHolder app or with the Connect IQ app? Anyways remember to visit where we can give you our support.

Very secretive about the cost for a premium app. It is not described anywhere what the costs are for a premium upgrade. Not in the app and not on the website. Weird!

Developer Reply
January 28, 2023, PassHolder

Hi Tonny, there should be no secret about the premium cost. When you click upgrade to premium, on the settings page. The Google Play payment platform should inform you at that first moment, before any payment, of the price in your currency, applying all local fees and taxes in your region. As they change dynamically around the world, we cannot advertise any price that does not match the actual price.

Het scherm gaat uit zodra ik mijn pols draait naar de scanner. Hoe kan ik dit oplossen?

David Hamilton-Grey
August 16, 2022 | Version 2.0.5

Shows a screen with no options. No settings. Just a few lines of text to say passholder not running. No settings in connect iq app.. so how do you just it. It makes no sense at all. 1 star until you at least add an app that A) works B) has some means to do something and C) revert to A and B

Hello David, The PassHolder app for Garmin works properly, synchronizing automatically, and as all the configuration is set in the PassHolder Android app, there is no further need, for a configuration screen. For your comment, and error "Passholder app not running, we cannot but think that you have jumped too quickly to leave a bad review, without all the components installed, as it is clearly explained in this Garmin App page. A) you need to have PassHolder android, as showed in Requirements-Companion app. So please install that app. B) Add some passes to your PassHolder app in Android otherwise you have an empty list. C) visit to solve any issues.

To show a barcode you need to have your watch sync with the Android phone with the PassHolder app installed. Please visit for further details.

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.

Developer Reply
August 16, 2022, PassHolder

Hello Mauro, the apps works correctly however many EU countries, such as Italy, Spain or Portugal, issue QR with way to many information, thus the matrix is too big. Then when you try to use it in your watch it probably exceed the screen resolution, and loses information due to the hardware. Despite that the app works correctly, we would appreciate if you would reconsider your review.

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
