Hi, does this App allow for distance runs instead of timed? Thanks!
2019/12/14 | バージョン1.11
Nice app. Would like to be able too upload a schedule to it, with own run/walk sequences, ideally also with pace targets per sequence.

the C25K program gives you the 5 minute warm-up and cool down periods. this program does not. why is that? as soon as I start the app it says RUN, with no warm-up at all !?

Do You plan support for Fenix 6x?
yes, I will. There's a few apps I still need to convert to the new watches, the bigger resolutions on the new models makes this quite an effort. Cheers, Peter.

It is a very nice and useful tool. I do have some suggestions that might help. Iwould like a message about half way through that tells me to turn around. Now I have to look at the time to estimate when to start heading back and make the final rest/walk much longer;). Also it doesn't remember which day is next (auto increment).

Nice app. Should the watch vibrate at the change from walk to run? The settings seem to be correct but I’m not getting any notification which means I have to keep looking so I don’t miss the change.
Yes but the vibration on some watches (vivoactive3...) is very weak

Very nice app. Things I would like to see at first "use":-
1) Ability to see the full schedule of the selected day workout from the summary screen. I had no idea what to expect.
2) Ability to scroll through all days in order to see what's coming up: it would help with planning ahead. Ah ok, also just to be nosy.
3) The voice tells you what you are about to do not what you have just done. I have no interest in knowing I just did a 2-minute rest but I would like to know over my headphones that I am about to do a 3-minute run. Yes, hearing the pace for that run would also be good but not the rest periods. "Rest period over, 3 minutes run starting". "3 minutes run over. the pace is... Rest for 2 minutes". Possible? I am guessing this is a limitation of the Garmin tracking and reporting API?
4) More prompts (option) so I know each minute what is left to go. Us fatties struggling like to know there's only 2 minutes left! ;)
5) And the MOST important. Auto-advance to the next session and integrate in the calendar.
All that said, great app. I like it all be self-contained on the watch. As a beginner (or rather coming back to fitness after a couple of decades of excess) I found the training plans from both Garmin AND Runtastic to be WAY too optimistic. 30 min warm up run. I don't think so.
Thanks. 1/ With the screen estate available it is a bit of a problem to show the full schedule on the watch, but I've just edited the info page on starttorun.info to add the schedule info (you might need to refresh the page to clear the cache) 2/ you can actually use the up/down arrow to scroll the lessons, but the info in 1/ is probably a better way to look ahead. 3/ this is unfortunately not possible 4/ this is configurable via the application settings 5/ the auto-advance is not implemented on purpose, it could be that you struggled with the current lesson and want to do this same lesson the next time. To advance to the next lesson use the up arrow. Cheers, Peter.

I love this app and certainly don’t regret donating. It is simple and had everything I need. There are plenty of running apps that require headphones for audio motivation and interval changes, but with this one you only need your watch, not even your phone is required. It links to my Garmin activities, so I get all the data fields and reports to look at afterwards, such as heart rate. While running, I have all the fields I need such as heart rate and speed. Thanks so much for this app, and I look forward to starting on the 10k one!
Enjoy Kate! Glad you like the app! Cheers, Peter.

Great app, it is really motivating for me! Thanks for your work!
I would like to ask one thing; how can I see or know which training is meant to be for example a interval training? I checked thw support forums but couldn't find anything related to detailed plan!

hi !does it save the lesson to garmin conect?
Yes. Cheers, Peter.
2018/08/15 | バージョン1.9-upd3
Is this comparable to a C25K app?
yes this program will also guide you from 0k to 5k in 30 lessons. Cheers, Peter.

Nice App. Would like to see the schedule (W1R2W1R3...) and progress. To show the progress you can make a round progress bar and indicate running (red) and walking (green) and where you are in the schedule. A bit like the standard indicators on my VivoActive 3.
The visual progress bar is a good idea, I'll add that to my to do. Showing the complete schedule in the form you suggest is a problem for some of the training sessions due to their length and the small screen estate you have to work with, I've posted the complete schedule in the support topic though, so you can check there prior to your run. Cheers, Peter.

Just went out for my first run and absolutely love this app . I will definitely be donating! Thank you so much for the help and guidance into running.

I just completed the 10 week schedule and really enjoyed using this app to accomplish my goal. Simple to use, easy interface to navigate, and just enough data in the display that I could find what I was looking for at a quick glance during my runs. Thanks!
Super! Once you feel ready to go for the 10k distance, be sure to check out my Start To Run 10k app: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/36914aae-ed74-4523-b26b-c0c8966e10a1

Small glitch fixed immediately by developer. Simple easy tool to motivate me back to running
2017/08/27 | バージョン1.4.3
Not easy to use whith for runner 630, without up and down. And we can't manage the personal time of walk and run
It's by design that you can not choose the personal time to walk and run: the Start To Run 5k app features a training program that gets harder (ie less walking) the further lesson you'll get to. To choose the lesson on touch devices you can tap the upper or lower half of the screen to either go a lesson up or a lesson down, if you have an idea how to improve the experience for you on your forerunner 630 I'm more than welcome towards your input in the support topic: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-showcase/157092

Awesome . Haven't run in years , but this is really helping me get back into it. Would be nice to see some additional fields like total activity steps , calories etc
Thanks for the feedback Heine, I've added your suggestions to my todo list. Cheers, Peter.
