Windsurfing application

Descripción

This is an activity tracking application optimized for windsurfing. During race tracking It shows 2 screens. 1st screen shows (from top to bottom) current speed, top speed for the race, top 2 second speed for the race, amount of laps (tacks), race time in minutes, total distance and current time. Speed and distance are shown in selected units (knots, km/h for speed, or km, miles and nautical miles for distance). 2nd screen shows best five 10 seconds averaging speeds per lap. Starting from version 2.0b there are 2 more screens with best 100m, 250m, 500m and Alpha 500 values(screen3) and best Alpha 500 per lap(screen4). The color of the circle around the screen corresponds to the GPS accuracy from Red(which is poor or N/A) till Green (Good). Upon race completion, all this statistic is saved to the application storage and can be viewed using "Review Results" menu. Up to 25 races can be saved. There is also timer mode that can be used during competition to track the time till the race start flag (up to 5 minutes). Units for speed and distance are set using "Settings" menu. I tried to support as many devices as possible, but the only real device that was used for testing was Fenix 6. Other targets were tested on simulator only. Feel free to report any issues or bugs, I will try to fix them as soon as I can but please take into consideration that this is my hobby project that I am doing at free from office and windsurfing time.

Used once. In the evening, my battery was quickly drained down for no reason. I think the GPS was not properly disabled after use.

Just works.

Just the best app

The maximum speed is not visible in the data field of the watch. It appears when transferring data to the phone. Fix this

The app is showing very strange speedrecords (today 90km/h???)

Really good app. Thank you so much. Very minor improvements recommended as follows. Would be better if there was a noise and the play button to signify session started when pressing start like when running. Also the stop button. Lastly, need ConnectIQ to show Knots not Km/h. However, it does display properly in other areas. That aside, a very very good app. windsurfing windsurfing

Great app, would indeed be nice if there was a pause button, or even better auto pause.

Thank you for this app! A bigger font and less information per screen would be great (for gen. 40+ ... :-) Kind regards!

A pause button would be perfect

So far best windsurfing app! Thanks to the Dev for design and maintenance! Will be cool to have extra planning time and distance (e.g.,above certain speed threshold)

Really good app. Use it each session. Also wish it had a pause/resume function for taking breaks. Without that I guess some data would be way out. Eg average speed etc.

Really great app, works fine ! But, the tactile screen doesn’t like water… and it’s difficult to change the display when the screen and fingers are wet. It would be great if we can change displays only with the button and the ability of long or a short press. Thank you so much.

Really good app! The only thing I am missing is a pause/start button for taking a break during a session.

Great app the only one I use had a issue with data not showing on phone for a while but I think I sorted it . This makes my day on the water interesting and fun trying to beat my own times

Amazing works perfectly on fenix5 really impressed how accurate it is made my day on the water really fun and interesting and a big thank you to the creator for making this

It a really good app. It has everything what is needed and works very stable. I can only recommend it.

App con i dati essenziali per il windsurf. A mio avviso la più semplice e allo stesso tempo migliore app per questo sport. L’unica pecca è che manca il tasto Pausa, quindi o create un’altra sessione o registrate tutte le pause, anche quelle per bere qualche cosa al bar. Ho contattato il programmatore e mi ha scritto che provvederà a presto per implementare con questa funzione…. Per il resto perfetta per le mie esigenze!!!!

Great app! The only feature I am missing is a pause/start button to use between sessions of recreational windsurfing. Best regards, J

Thanks for this! only used once on fenix6s pro but seemed excellent and easy to use. It would be great to be able to access the notifications widget without stopping the session/race but I don’t know if this is possible?

Awesome app, thanks!!! The only thing i can think of that i'd like, would be heart rate and maybe calories ... Would help during competitions.

Looks promising but keeps crashing on my Vivoactive3. Numbers could be bigger (like in all apps) (People above 45 also use screens , more and more...)

Great app, works fine on my Quatix5. Simple and with all the relevant data. Only minor bug I could find : speeds are recorded in knots in the app but display as km/h in Garmin Connect ( for example a 500m speed of 18 knots will display as 18 km/h on the iQ data screen).

Hi Laurent, Thank you for the review. Regarding the bug with speed, this is known issue that stated in the release notes. The reason why it's not fixed yet, because Garmin does not support dynamic switching of speed units in the Garmin Connect custom fields. So, the application allows users to set speed units dynamically, some users choose "knots" and some can choose the "km/h", and the app writes correct speed values into the FIT file, but for Garmin connect custom fields I can only select either "knots" or "km/h" at compile time, and it's fixed for the app. One of the solutions for this is to display something like "Selected speed units" instead of "knots or "km/h", it would be technically correct but It's odd from the user perspective. I am thinking about reporting this to Garmin. Perhaps they can fix this constrain or recommend the better solution.

Great app, all I need, clear and to the point, no unnecessary bloat. Could you maybe add all the info to Garmin connect and not only best 100m,250m and 500m? Otherwise one would loose this info over time, no?

Respuesta del desarrollador
27 de agosto de 2020, ViVSurfer

Hi Bubestube, Thank you for the review. Actually, 100m,250m and 500m are saved to the Session section while the best 10s and &500 speed are saved to the Lap section. Please use a landscape mode of the Smartphone and scroll to the right in the Lap section to see those data in Garmin connect. Other values, such as Max speed, overall distance etc. are already available in the session. The only value that not saved is speed for 2 second. I may consider to add it later.

Thanks for adding 5*10sec and @500!
