My most favourite widget on my watch! I wish there were more tools for birdwatching and the like. Works fine on my fenix 6s pro. Output matches the similar eBird inquiry. I love that it's out of the box and a creative use of the watchs potential comparing to the hundreds of repeating other apps and widgets you'd find here.

Thank you fellow birdwatcher. Really glad it helps.

It's beautiful

Very very nice idea, but the app doesn't work on the fenix 6S pro. You can change the settings in Garmin Express, the widget just keeps the standard settings, after installing, the widget gives birds but doesn't update anymore after that, the second time you go to the widget it is stuck or it says IQ. Before and after the update to 10.10.

Hi Corr, thanks for the report. I'm aware of that the setting reverts back in Garmin Express. There is existing reported bug to Garmin for this matter. I am quite curious to why it doesn't work on 6s pro. I've been using 6 pro on FW 10.10 without issues though. Unfortunately Garmin CIQ hasn't improved much so I already gave up maintaining this app. Thanks anyway.

Immer nur fullscreen IQ! :-(

Sorry mate. This happens for some watches even though in Garmin simulator it doesn't. I really can't say much about how to fix it.

Really cool concept, bad design. It's not possible to scroll through the pages of birds on vivoactive 4s. I can only select the top bird on the list and see page 1 of 18 pages of species.

2020/03/09, Mark.Kuo

Hi Sara, this is a known issue of FW 4.0 in vivoactive 4s. All widgets which has pages are all broken: Garmin hasn't done anything for the past 2 months. Really frustrating as my wife also can't use it.

2020/03/07 | バージョン1.1.0

Only shows the message “no birds around“ and gives me an IQ error message.

2020/03/09, Mark.Kuo

Hi Eva, let me know what watch you are using. I will remove the support of it because on Simulator all the supported devices work fine. Garmin is known for bad simulator which doesn't simulate real device behaviour. I can only confirm Fenix 6 pro works fine.

terrible ,can not get information and just show IQ error ,please update that and make it better ,can you add Naturalist in another app ?

2020/02/24, Mark.Kuo

Thanks for the review. Connect IQ is *very* buggy and I am not surprised you may see this. All developers got is simulator and the terrible thing of connect IQ is that simulator does not behave the same as real device. inaturalist is interesting though. I'll take a look.

Hello. Is it possible to give information, if I see a bird around my home? Does exist a login for a homepage? Greetings Helmut in Germany

2020/02/17, Mark.Kuo

Hi this app is designed as read-only and does not provide a way to login to eBird or report observations. It's just not that useful on a watch with limited input and screen size. I would rather just take out my phone and use eBird app :) Thanks for the review!
