The app works perfectly and has all features one can wish for coherent breathing. Since the initial release there have been many updates, bringing in New features and even more polished graphical interface. I also like this kind of coherence score that gives you fast and easy to understand overview on how well you performed during the breathing exercises. (It also bit frustrates me because I can not get more then 65 :D) I am using additionally some of Hearmath Institute tricks for heart coherence but I can't get higher score. Maybe some Tips how to increase the score would be helpful. :)

Great App! Developer responds to feature request and fix bugs quickly. I like the new feature with vibration so that I don't have to look at my watch while breathing. Especially I like that the strength of vibration can be set. Like this you can practice the breathing without everyone hearing the vibration signals...Maybe it would also make sense to add setting to turn off the display after some time if vibration is used for guidance. On Amoled devices it would be nice to see inverted colors (black background). I also like the new feature that allows change length of breath in/out phase. Many graphs available to analyze the data! Would it also be possible to measure how HRV changes? (rMSSD)?

Thanks for the even better review ;) The display turn off makes sense indeed on amoled. I use a memory in pixel display (fr245) therefore it was not relevant. -
I first started with a "dark mode" but again on my mip display it was difficult to see details. But i already got this on my todo list. -
HRV is actually not within my focus. There is a standard "stress" diagram produced by garmin that comes automatically with the breathwork activity. To calculate the RMSSD is not a big deal, but why are you interrested in this value?

This app has potential! I think it would be great to add customized breath in/out time length. I personally used 4,5 sec in and 6,5 sec out (my resonant frequency ) The sinus curve was a bit confusing for me but with 3rd trial I got use to it. I am looking forward to analyze the data in graphs. So far i haven’t seen any graph. (Maybe because my longest session was only 5 minutes?)

Thanks for your review. I will consider a customization of diffent inhalation/exhalation times. I understood "coherent breathing" as a balanced breathing method that does not prefer inhalation or exhalation with the goal to balance the autonomous nervous system (Sympathetic Nervous System and Parasympathetic Nervous System). Also the evaluation of "coherence" of heartrate to breathing in phase and waveform will be difficult. But I will consider.
Moreover I noticed, that the extra graphics will currently not be shown in the app. Try the webpage https://connect.garmin.com/ to review your activity
