It IS called hiker and not backpacker, but I charged my watch completely before a backpacking trip. Hiked about 6 hours paused it, Next morning it had completely
drained my watch battery after about 2 hours
My favorite app
If there were a battery save mode, I would give this 5 stars. It works great for short hikes, but anything over 10 miles and it might die on you.
Ottima ben fatta!
Amazing app. I've used this on multiple multi-day hikes and having the map Trace of where I've been has saved me lots of time trying to figure out where I am on a map.
Was very happy with this Widget and my Forerunner 235. Now not compatible with my new fenix 6 ?! What's up? Please do...
I used to use this app a lot during my hikes, but it's been a few months now that it doesn't record the GPS route anymore. Synching with Connect, it keeps all the recorded data but the GPS route.
Worthless after 20 minutes. It started out okay, but 20 to 30 minutes into my hike it switched my display to only show heart rate info (not even accurate info), and no way to change it back to display the info wanted.
Great app but there is one big problem for me. In a break i tried to load my device with a powerbank but then the app automatically stopped and saved the activity so i had to start a new one. Now i have 2 activities for one hike
70% battery down for 6 hours with use this app.
Good App, i wish altitude is shown in meters instead of feet
The units, metres or feet, are controlled by the settings on your watch. The app reads these watch settings. https://wearableio.com/faq/how-do-i-change-the-units-in-the-app/
Seems that the only fields that we can change are the 4 at the bottom and the size of the font is quite small. Seems impossible to change the 2 larger fields at the top (time of day, time in activity). It would be nice to have the flexibility to use one of these fields as distance.
Leider ohne Pausenerkennung!
Great Apps! Thank You.
Eigentlich eine sehr gute App, leider ein Schönheitsfehler: während der Aufzeichnung stimmt die Angabe "Anstieg" total nicht. Z. B. wandere auf ebener Strecke halbe Stunde und es werden 80m im Anstieg angezeigt.
Fantastic hiking app. Isn’t any harder on the battery than the standard walk app and has much more usable data with a better layout. Best feature is the compass. I often open the app just to get a compass fix!
The battery just died on my original Vivoactive HR. I was considering buying the newer Vivoactive 3, but this app hasn’t been updated for the newer watch. Instead I purchased a refurbed Vivoactive HR from Garmin so I could continue using this app. (JohnD, how can we convince you to update for newer watches?)
I like it! I've been using another app called "hike", but the font is too small to see when I'm walking. Is there a way to set it to "Walk" instead of "Hike"?
love it! useful
Va bastante bien. Lo mejor que registra tus marchas como actividad. Lo que menos me gusta son los colores y la opción de mapa que es un poco básica. En general muy útil esta app para senderismo o entrenos de trail moderados.
Using this for very long time
Used on 235 and worked well. Only wish there is a battery save mode.
Used it on my Forerunner 235, but showed inaccurate data. Distance, speed and height measurements were incorrect.
I used ur previous version and it showed also telephone calls and WhatsApp and text messages when I recorded my walks - now not anymore - is it a bug or is Garmin system not allowing? (vivoactiv hr system 4.40 - funny enough with the Garmin original apps it works - same thing wit the oder hiking app...
Used this extensively on my Vivoactive HR. I now upgraded to Vivoactive 3 Music and its not compatable :(. Do you have plans to update code to make it compatible? Please??
