Very good app. I use it to climb stairs and also to work out on a stepper machine, with my Fenix 3 HR + HRM RUN belt.
Only issue : Floor per Minute IQ does not work, it shows only a straight line steadily increasing from 0 to 2 flr/min.
One suggestion for future version : to be able to set up the selection Indoor / Outdoor and GPS On/Off available on the watch itself, rather than only via the Garmin Express or Mobile settings. And to have this selection appearing in the Garmin Connect activity stats.

This app has lots of potential including the feedback from all the data fields. However, just as others have mentioned there's no data on floors completed in Garmin Connect. Also, there's no distance completed in the data fields. The floors per minute did not work. Also, the floors completed in the data field does not match the StairMaster at all. There is a huge discrepancy. Is there a way to calibrate? I wish this app was better.

Sorry you did not get the results on your first try. Yes there is a steps/floor calibration in the settings and will make your watch match the machine. The stairsteper app uses cadence to determine floor and floor rate. If you do not have a footpod or HRM with cadence, the cadence will come from the watch. This means the watch needs some movement to register cadence. With a HRM w/cadence and calibration, results are near 99% accurate every time on the stepper.
As for the Activity Tracking “Floors Climbed”, us CIQ developers cannot write these values Garmin Policy ☹. This including daily step totals, total floor, VO2, etc. I do provide the floors climbed in the IQ stats section of your save activity.

The price on Garmin IQ for the Stairstepper+ app is US$2, but the unlock code site shows US$5.50. Am I missing something?
30. julij 2019, fbbbrown
Thanks for reviewing, that a is the All Applications price. There is another option for individual apps

I have been testing this with a Fenix 5x and a heart rate monitor HRM-TRI, counting box step ups. It does not work. Different counts each time I try, and has a too low limit for step height.
30. julij 2019, fbbbrown
Anders thanks for reviewing, if you could contact me directly. I maybe able to refine the application for box step-ups.

Programme seems pretty good. If using foot pod it doesn't account for the steps of the other foot. I'll see if my bike cadence sensor in my shoe works better. The floors per minute graph on the android connect app doesn't work properly. It displays similar to cumulative steps ie inclined line but x axis incorrect.

Thank for reviewing.

I downloaded the ap a couple weeks ago to Forerunner 645 Music and unlocked. Using the recommended strap. I typically stair master for 60 minutes, but frequently use longer. The 2 times I went 90 minutes the program froze at 1:20 minutes. Each time I had to do a hard reset and lost the data. Is the ap only designed to work for 60 minutes? I saw there is a new version and I just downloaded. Maybe there’s a fix there. Please advise.
17. april 2019, fbbbrown
Thanks for reviewing, it is best to contact me directly for questions of this nature. Once unlocked there should be no limitations. I will investigate this, contact me directly you experience the again so I can correct the problem.

Settings in GC App disappeard - why? I tried to reinstall app and had the same situation. I managed only to put activation code and it works, but next try to change settings in GC App is not possible, there is only Uninstall and Show in store options.
Next question - is there any possibillity to edit qty of floors?
24. februar 2019, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review. This is a new Android Connect bug :(
I had another user find a work around here is a link what to do. Hopefully Garmin will fix soon.
The other option is to use Garmin Express until Garmin fixes the Android Connect App.
I suggest to leaving a post so this gets addressed quickly. The Connect developers are usually quite responsive.
Here is the forum post listing this new bug.

Works fine on my Fenix 3 with HR belt. Perfect support.

With a few adjustments in settings, This app works perfect using the Chest HRM-RUN. The floors and steps were right on. I got the bundle and made my watch what I needed.

Ich fange mein Stair_Stepper Training an und in erste 5 Minute zeigt das Gerät mein HF 40% weniger. Sehr Schlecht!!!!
30. oktober 2018, fbbbrown
Es tut uns leid, dass Sie einige Probleme haben, aber die Stepper-App erfordert eine Kalibrierung. Verwendet auch Cadence oder Steps, um Etagen zu erstellen, die geklettert sind, daher wird ein Footpod oder Chest HRM benötigt. Wenn Sie nur wachen, muss sich der Zeiger der Uhr bewegen, um die Etagen zu zählen. .... . Sorry your having some porblems, but the stair stepper app requires calibration. Also uses Cadence or Steps to generate floors climbed, therefore a footpod or Chest HRM is required. If watch only, the watch hand must move to count floors.
22. oktober 2018 | Različica 2.7
I am a bit disappointed. It is not even counting the floors.
A sprint 7 floors up indpors un 40 seconds, it gives me 1 floor and 5 calories.
Is there an additional setup?
22. oktober 2018, fbbbrown
sorry your having some troubles. the app uses cadence to measure floors, so the use of a footpod or HRM-RUM will improve accuracy. I suggest using the setting indoor/GPS OFF.
13. oktober 2018 | Različica 2.7
So I tried using this app with my Garmin 5s. I spent the money (it’s $1.29 all in all) and was very excited to start to train on the stair climber at the gym for an upcoming event involving climbing stairs for a cause at one of Miami’s high rises. I can’t get it to count steps however. When I contacted Garmin about it, turns out that I will need either the foot pod or the hrm run. Wish I would have known this before. That’s kind of a let down. So now I’m just trying to figure out which of these will work. When I contacted the developer by email, they haven’t responded. Come on guys, don’t create an app for a big company like Garmin and slack off - give me some support here!
22. oktober 2018, fbbbrown
thanks for the review. I respond to 100% of emails please use the Contact Developer Link on the App page. this app will work with the watch only, a foot pod and the HRM-RUN, with best accuracy with the HRM-run

I was using 10 minute trials, wished to purchase Stairstepper, but in 'PayPal without account' option, there was no "Turkey" country option. Not able to proceed! As I am not able to use full version, my evaluation is only 'Okay'. Regards
22. oktober 2018, fbbbrown
contact me directly and i will get you an option.
21. september 2018 | Različica 2.7
Seems very good and fairly accurate compared to the indoor Powermill stats when wearing chest HRM. For me the most important metric is vertical ascent so there should be a setting for 'Step Up Height' in the settings so a data screen can show total vertical ascent in metres/feet on one of the data screens.
22. oktober 2018, fbbbrown
thanks for the review, i will add this request.
16. avgust 2018 | Različica 2.7
I used this CIQ app together with my 735XT + RD pod + Footpod, I found that that it is very accurate when step per minute is over 78, if SPM is lover than that the number will just run wild. Without footpod and RD pod, you gotta move your arm for it to work. With footpod or RD pod alone, it is not accurate too.
Wish list: I hope the steps I climb while I am using this app can be included into Garmin's activity steps. Meanwhile it doesn't.
08. september 2018, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, I found the chest HRM Run provide near perfect results. The foot Strike sensor requires the running motion and stepping is close but not perfect, so your results are normal. Try the Chest HRM with cadence support you will be very happy.

The app need more cordination or more exact about calories, because 30 min training and only 44 cal and the machine show 380 something is wrong , please check this and make a actualization! !
17. julij 2018, fbbbrown
thanks for the review. Be sure your watch is tight, Garmin uses a Heart Rate based calorie count, so the use of optical heart sensor could lower the actual calories if not properly fitted.
21. junij 2018 | Različica 2.6
Great app. Using with Garmin Forerunner 920XT and HR strap. Tracks floors climbed and HR well, but calories burned is about half what my stair Machine or the MyFitnessPal app shows. I did 45 min today and this app shows 220 calores burned but stairclimber and other fitness apps show 450 to 500. Is there a setting I'm missing?
17. julij 2018, fbbbrown
thanks for the review. the calorie count on the machine is typically for a male 150 not in shape. Garmin uses a Heart Rate based calorie count, so the use of optical heart sensor could lower the actual calories, I suggest using a HRM
13. junij 2018 | Različica 2.6
Have not downloaded this app yet.. Have one question before i do:
Is it possible to add amounts of step manually?
14. junij 2018, fbbbrown
thanks for the review. No, I cannot add manual steps.

I was using the HRM-tri and by the time I hit 35 floors it was already 10 behind
04. marec 2018, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, but calibration is necessary for the app to match your stepper. I suggect to lower the ‘Steps per Floor’ setting in configuration. This can be done at the watch (long press the main menu) or at the connect app configuration settings.
19. februar 2018 | Različica 2.1.0
Appears OK but no stair counting will this work with a TICKR X hrm?
23. februar 2018, fbbbrown
Thanks for the review, it will work with the wahoo tickrx but you will have better results with a garmin hrm-run(red)z
07. februar 2018 | Različica 2.1.0
If I have to move my arms what is the point of the foot pod? Even when I move my arms it only counts some of the steps.
08. februar 2018, fbbbrown
Thanks for your review, the foot pod works but the motion foot strike of a step is not the best. I found the HRM-run gives near prefect results. Here is my last stair master activity with HRM-RUN
03. februar 2018 | Različica 2.1.0
All these apps by fbbbrown are excellent. They are well made and fill in some of the "missing" apps on my Fenix 3 that were on my Vivoactive 3. The developer responds promptly with any problems or requests. This is a first class app and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
01. februar 2018 | Različica 2.1.0
I just got this app and I am extremely disappointed and will br asking for a refund. First off, when you buy the app it is not $0.99 but rather $1.29, there is a $0.30 "delivery" charge shadily added on. Second, it does not record heart rate appropriately and had mine pretty messed up from a 30 min bout. Thus my estimated cals are messed up. That is ok, i got good notes of my heart rate and cals from the machine so I can edit right? Wrong, unlike other apps for some reason you can not edit the data. Like I said, I am disappointed and want a refund.
01. februar 2018, fbbbrown
Sorry you feel this way but if you are using optical heartrate the wrist movement will reduce the heart rate accuracy in all apps. This can be remedy by wearing a chest hrm. Using the watch alone the watch has to move to generate steps if you’re holding the machine, how can the watck (or an app) detect movement? Basing calories from a machine that doesnt account for gender, weight, height, heart rate and athletic ability is crazy. The machines increase the calorie values for marketing so you feel happy, but they are never correct. As for the paypal fee that a paypal thing i’m not happy about either. As for editing, no one cannot edit the data you mentioned from all apps (including fb3 apps). I will refund but i suggest getting a hrm-run(red) and all if your result will be accurate.
