A little question. Are the settings in metric or imperial? And i guess the time is in seconds.

Resposta do programador

It should follow the settings on your device but default would be metric. Time would be in seconds.

Developer, How do I get it to show waves and wave time on the Gramin connect app ??

Resposta do programador
11 de Setembro de 2020, AledThomas

Garmin have changed it so to see them in Garmin connect you would need to buy one of their new watches with native support for surfing. Other than that you can export from Garmin and import to wavestracker to see the data as it should be

8 de Setembro de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Good app, however GPS is a bit off (it says I'm getting way more waves than I actually do with some ver long 125m waves). Ive tried tuning the minimum speed and times on a wave to have a more accurate reading. Is there a possibility to have both gps+galileo tracking? Also, cannot return to the home face watch whilst using the app (just adds waves to the count XD) Keep up the good work.

Resposta do programador
9 de Setembro de 2020, AledThomas

The way connectiq apps are set up there is no way to return to the watch face like you would with a built in app without first closing the app and ending tracking. At the moment the GPS is set to whatever you set last time you used a built in tracker, so if you set it to GPS+Galileo then it will use both, I believe Garmin are adding the ability for developers to set it per app in the next connect iq update though so I'll add it as an option then, some watch models do track better than others when in and out of water.

It works fine on vivoactive 4, many happy users with that exact watch prove it.

20 de Agosto de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Watch face says I surfed 56 waves but only transferred or recorded 9 to the Garmin Connect app. Also, it records paddling around the line up as a wave caught. Would like to able able to edit my wave count. Other than that, pretty sweet app.

Just change the settings to suit

It works fine on my watch, but when I transfer the data to my phone it no longer shows waves, wave time and length. Any reason why? It shows GPS track, session time etc., so it doesn't make sense to me.

Resposta do programador
18 de Agosto de 2020, AledThomas

Yes, it's explained in the app info, the very first thing in the description, glad you only think it's worth 3 stars because of a bug which has nothing to do with this app, please delete the app and email me for a refund

My wave count is always ridiculously inaccurate. Any time you stop and then paddle again it must be counting as a wave. Info doesn’t seem to transfer back well into Garmin Connect app either. Really get session total time & heart rate info & that’s about it. If there’s a way to fix the wave count thing & the show that in the app summary page then it’d be sweet

Resposta do programador
7 de Agosto de 2020, AledThomas

Read the instructions, both questions are answered there. Wave count depends on the settings you enter and what Garmin shows in their app is up to them I have no control of that.

6 de Agosto de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

-Timer freezes -wave tracking is useless wether it’s a long or short wave -Barley any settings Honestly no point in really even using it. Garmins other surf app isn’t much better... For a watch that can do so much well I don’t understand how far behind other brands Garmin is with apps. Apple Watch has dawn patrol and Garmin has.. well... this! Rant over!!

Resposta do programador
6 de Agosto de 2020, AledThomas

The timer doesn't freeze and the wave tracking works just fine, there's plenty of users who have no problems that prove that. I don't know what settings you expect but it's designed for surfing not fiddling with settings? If you have a problem you could email me and we could work out why you're incapable of using this simple app.

5 de Agosto de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Max speed is not showing in the main view and it appears in the data fields of the second tag. My device is fenix 5

22 de Julho de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Very good app! My fenix 6s has been upgraded and depicts the waves when synced, however during surfing, wave count of stuck on zero!..

James Todd

Since the app developer's hand are tied it works as well as can be expected. Hopefully Garmin will play nice in the future.

Jeremy Webber

Works well enough after you read the app notes and understand the limitations put on the developer.

I seem to have a connection issue between watch and IOS connect app I am unable to get the wave count: longest wave, total waves and max speed data??? I’m not sure if I’m missing a setting - is a manual available ?

Resposta do programador
18 de Julho de 2020, AledThomas

A manual? No. A note explaining why you aren't getting those stats? Yes, it's literally the first thing in the apps description on the page you downloaded it from. Thanks for leaving a 2 star review that really helps.

Fun app. I enjoyed my first surf with it last night. Viewed the map tracking in Garmin and then the sync to Strava and its really fun to look at. The wave count, speed, etc. data doesnt currently sync to Garmin, but reading the app details I believe that's an issue with the Garmin side. (Vivoactive 3 here) Thanks for making this. Its simple and really all i need to get heart rate details linked to my surf workouts and not have a big gap in my tracking when i surf vs bike or run.

13 de Julho de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Good app- needs better integration with the Garmin connect web app though as there is no waves tracker app for iPhone!

Resposta do programador
18 de Julho de 2020, AledThomas

Unfortunately nothing I can do, garmin changed their connect app and there's no way for me to change it back, until they sort it out their end and that don't appear to have any plans to.

Very cool app but i have problems the app no export data to my garmin mobile app...

Resposta do programador
12 de Julho de 2020, AledThomas

Garmin mobile is broken and doesn't work for surfing, you should use something like wavestracker, even Google maps does a better job than garmins app :D

7 de Julho de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Haven't really been able to work this app properly as I do not know how to set there an instructions manual how to use and set-up...? It did locate my GPS data on my first surf session, but there are empty lines on my waves and wave count...?

Luiz Filipe Guerra
4 de Julho de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Depois da atualização nao aparece mais a distancia total percorrida, mesmo aumentando a velocidade e tempo de contagem continua marcando ondas que nao existiram.

1 de Julho de 2020 | Versão 1.1.6

Love this app! Would be much more useful though if the map showing the surf track could only show the track of the waves ridden and not the paddling. Most sessions I can’t make much out because there are too many tracks. Then would prefer a screen that gave only wave ridden data with time, distance and speed per wave... :)

Resposta do programador
2 de Julho de 2020, AledThomas

There is no map in this app, that's all down to the app you're using to view the track afterwards. Use a decent surf analysis software like wavestracker instead of Garmin's (which only cares about runners) and you'll see exactly those details you're looking for wave by wave :)

When I click into the app on my watch, it says waiting for GPS and does not change. My GPS is on but I am still not sure what tro do.

Resposta do programador

This is very easily fixed. If you emailed me I could reply telling you how to set it up and it would be fine. Thanks for leaving a one star review instead though.

La verdad es que es una sorpresa. Cumple su función sobradamente. Pocas opciones y facilidad de manejo. Últimamente no se vuelcan bien los datos al dispositivo garmin fenix 5 , pero supongo que reinstalándolo se arreglará solo.

Very bad. Got my Fenix5 stuck. Could not move it or remove it. I recomend Garmin to take this app. Out of the store until they fix all issues.. Don’t use, don’t install.

Thanks for your helpful review , there are no "issues" you probably just need to re install, a simple email and we could have fixed this for you. If you're not satisfied I can offer you a full refund of what you paid for the app.

Hey do you have an app suggestion that I could load my data on for an iPhone?

Resposta do programador

You can export the data from Garmin and load it into wavestracker, then it's viewable from their app and correctly tags your waves, distance, time etc.

Great app! I hope that Garmin soon opens their api so this app can display the data properly on the Garmin connect website.
