Amazing app, I've been using it for years in my vivoactive HR and it works perfectly.

This version come with some bugs working in a vivoactiveHR. -When pressing to begin the counting down to a race it asks “sync clock by 0 seconds?” -The race start is just broken!!

Here's the problem. You are getting this behaviour because of an unexpected "feature" of the VA-HR. I believe you're seeing this behaviour when you're using the start timer when you are not actually moving. Being a racing app, it assumes you are on a moving boat. The app's clock is driven by the signal from the GPS which normally sends a time and position report every second. On the current version of the VA-HR firmware, when the Garmin GPS software detects you are not moving, it stops sending the app this position signal. So the app's clock freezes. When you press the button first, it sets the app into "countdown" mode, but because the clock is frozen, the timer appears to be frozen. When you press the button the second time, it correctly interprets your intention to sync the timer, hence the "sync by 0 seconds" message. It's annoying and confusing. And it only happens on the VA-HR. It works fine if you are moving

The countdown works perfectly. But once the race starts every time i look at my wrist the App is asking me if i want to quit. It appears that water splashing on the watch is the same as tapping the screen. Not much use to a dinghy racer as i spend too much time fiddling with it to try and make it work again.

Absolutely no way to make it work with fenix 6x zafiro. A couple of versions ago it hang the watch completely at 5 or 10 minutes of racing. The new version keeps in the "login" screen and never goes beyond. The most disspointing and annoying app ever. I suggest everyone really needing one siling race/cruise app to try "... another sailing app". At least you don't end up all angry.

Sorry to hear of your disappointment. Yes. it's true, we have released versions that have been unreliable, but we have worked hard to overcome the issues as quickly as possible. There are quite a lot of pretty happy people using the app. Your current problem with login is an issue with your watch not connecting to your phone - the bluetooth connection often fails to operate, especially with iPhones. Please restart your watch and restart Garmin Connect on your phone and the login should proceed. If it continues to fail, please contest us through the "Contact Developer" option on this page.

When I use the app in my watch, I get the message 'Please Login', can someone tell me how to do it ?

Like it says in the App Info Description: It's all explained in the Training Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18rkZimSw7FP80v3enyiOmygA3bbJnuunqxulLiC8t2Y/edit?ts=59671391

I've been using the RaceQ app on my phone for a couple of years primarily in Flying Scot regattas. I currently have the Garmin Quatix watch and downloaded the RaceQ app. It's great. It's fun to use and definitely provides good usable info during a race. Please keep the app current. Thanks

Sorry, just saw that you responded. Try groups.io

Great app but minus a star for telling us to follow development on their Facebook page. It’s 2019 and there are a myriad of better places to discuss this app rather than Facebook

Yes, I agree FB is not ideal for discussing a watch app, but it has been around for a while and will probably survive the current spate of criticism. However, we're always open to suggestions, what would you suggest?
