The watch itself keeps track of my stats/waves caught, but when I sync to Garmin Connect it says always Say I caught nothing and has zero stats… which is unfortunate because then Surfline doesn’t show anything either because Surfline and my watch are synced.

It's also unfortunate you didn't read any of the instructions. Thanks for the 1 star review though, that's really helpful.

On 945 device waiting for GPS and nothing happens next

That's easy to fix, you could have emailed me for help instead of leaving a negative review and it would be working now. Never mind.

As someone said it does shoes waves on watch...the once uploaded it doesn't.. why?? I have a vivoactive 4.
26. maj 2021, AledThomas
It's explained in the app description on the exact page you download the app from. it's literally the first paragraph. You didn't read it.. why?? Very disappointed..
19. maj 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
Worked Great on my Vivoactive music 3, just purchased the Forerunner 935 and redownloaded the app to it and will test it Friday, fingers crossed it still works on this watch.

Hi, I really like the app I have a fénix 5s but it doesn’t show me the longest wave, total waves and maximum speed, do you know what it could be? I have reboosted, shutdown, etc... and it doesn’t work...
21. februar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
The app is really good when out surfing. When you go to upload to phone to garmin app I am unable to see wave count, longest wave etc. Does anyone know how to see this information? Thanks
22. februar 2021, AledThomas
Hi, Garmin won't allow you to see that data anymore since they launched their own 'surfing' watches, you can export the data on your computer though and import into a different app which shows them, wavestracker is a good one
08. februar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
Hi. Seems when I start the app. When I look at the timer it freezes? Any ideas how to fix this please? I dont like using the open swimming app for my surfing. You guys my only hope.
08. februar 2021, AledThomas
What watch? Can you send debug data, recorded activities? Unfortunately just leaving a review is no help it gives me no indication of the problem and no way to contact you back to help, use the 'contact developer' link on the app page instead please
06. februar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
Amazing app. Thanks! Since Garmin denies the right of using their app, this does the job pretty well!
05. februar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
Best and most simple surfing app.
31. januar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
GPS works great! Tracks your Location and where you surfed. Watch gives you the correct info during surfing. However after you upload the data to the phone, it does not give the “longest wave” ; “Total wave” and “Max speed”
If you go into raw data then it shows additional info but the main screen is missing info.
Additionally Expect deviation on waves counted. It does not correspond to reality.
Data show and analysis in Phone could be better...
31. januar 2021, AledThomas
So you want me to fix Garmin's app? I can't do anything about what their app shows you on your phone, I would suggest ditch Garmin and use a better app. All of this is explained in the instructions as is how to get an accurate wave count.

Stays freeze on the “waiting gps” screen, I’m using the Fenix 5. Any tips???
26. januar 2021, AledThomas
If you are outdoors and have a decent signal that screen should go green and then you can press start button to begin recording, it can take a couple minutes in a new place.
If it isn't picking up a signal and other apps are working ok on GPS then it's usually an install problem which can be fixed by uninstalling the app and re-installing from the store

Stays freeze on the “waiting gps” screen, I’m using the vivoactive4
24. januar 2021, AledThomas
That's pretty easy for you to fix, thanks for the helpful review though
19. januar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
It didn’t quite track proportionally to my wave count. Does this app measure speed in KPH or MPH? How about distance?
19. januar 2021, AledThomas
Yes it measures speed and distance. The settings can be tailored to the kind of waves and surfing you do, to give an accurate wave count.
17. januar 2021 | Različica 1.1.6
This app does exactly as outlined. The whole purpose for me getting this app was specifically to track the time i spend on this activity each week into strava.
This app makes it east to automatically save the raw data + gps map into strava. unfortunately due to Garmin's own decisions ride data doesn't sync which also means this doesn't integrate with the Surfline app to review rides.
I spent like 5 hours trying to make my own custom activity data and it was pointless, this is good enough for what i need it for!
My only suggestion / question to the developer is: the wave data i see is relatively accurate in small waves (under 5 ft) but once i'm in larger surf the # or rides is really inaccurate... again for me though, all I really wanted was how long i'm in the surf & a map of where I was at during that time... and it being in strava! thanks for doing that for me!
17. januar 2021, AledThomas
Hi, thanks for the review. You should be able to change some of the criteria for measuring waves for bigger waves, maybe at a higher minimum speed for very large waves
29. december 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
Got a Garmin Forerunner 645 for Christmas and have used this on three surfs since. Very well designed, slick and easy to use. I found it to be very accurate!
17. december 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
Peut être que je n'utilise pas bien l'application mais après plusieurs sessions je n'ai que le résumé de temps, la vitesse et les points Gps. L'appli ne me remonte aucun quantitatif de vague ni de distance...
30. december 2020, AledThomas
Pardonnez moi pas que mon français n'est pas bon, Ce n'est pas l'application sur le montre c'est l'application de Garmin sur le portable que est le problème. Je ne peut pas faire quelque-chose c'est a Garmin pour le réparer
05. december 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
Distance, speed and wave counts on watch seems accurate however I’m unable to display wave counts and stats (longest waves,etc) on the phone...any idea why? Thanks
05. december 2020, AledThomas
Yes I do have an idea why, that's why I wrote the reason why in the very first line of the app description so that users would know and would not leave negative reviews based on a bug in garmins phone app which I can do nothing about, thanks
30. november 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
I tried this app and it's seem work well however statistics on single waves such as speed, duration and left or right are missing. these statistics are instead present in the surftracker data field which I consider preferable at the moment.
25. november 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
The app works well for about 3 minutes and then it freezes. I am using it on a Garmin Fénix 5.
26. november 2020, AledThomas
I'll have a look to see if there's any crash reports but I think removing it and reinstalling again should fix this problem
21. november 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
Seems to work pretty well. Wave count is generally accurate. The app shows null values for the Longest Wave, Total Waves and Max Speed bubbles but wave count and details are all present in the Laps tab. Thanks for creating this!
18. november 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
A great app to add surfing as an activity to your garmin. Thanks for creating this work around.
It’s a pity garmin doesn’t allow you to format the data!
17. november 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
Cool App, cool Idea, cool handling. It`s a shame that Garmin Connect App doesn`t support this Data! Don`t worry and good Job!
11. oktober 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
I'm yet to use the app and I'm sure it is fine, from what I've read, given any limitations are due to the constraints set by Garmin. Kudos too for the developer's super dry sarcasm*
*I'm not being sarcastic
11. oktober 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
Love the app but would wish the release notes are getting updates with new versions. Have you had any luck in contacting Garmin to make the surfs show up in Connect? Keep up the good work!
12. oktober 2020, AledThomas
Hasn't been a new release in a while I'm afraid, I got fed up of the hate mail from users who didn't read the instructions and kind of gave up on the app. Problem with Garmin is the team who answer emails seem to have no connection with the team who actually implement anything so it's hard to get hold of anyone who even understands the question let alone answer it!
10. september 2020 | Različica 1.1.6
A little question. Are the settings in metric or imperial? And i guess the time is in seconds.
11. september 2020, AledThomas
It should follow the settings on your device but default would be metric. Time would be in seconds.
