I really want this app to work and it seems closer than others I've tried for the watch. I'm getting the same Java error the Alberto commented on. Any update on the fix? I have a vivosmart hr and a pixel 2.

25 พฤษภาคม 2562 | Version 1.0.1

Does not work! The program writes that the clock VA3 is connected, but does not respond to clicking on the clock.

hi Lori, I wish I could give you 5 stars , as the app is supposed to do exactly what I want and need. I have a Fenix 5 and Pixel 3. I've installed cameracontrol.apk on phone (from dropbox Last modified 2/11/2019, 8:47 1.34Mb), launched and connected to the watch. When I take a photo, get this message on phone "An error occurred while taking the picture:java.lang.RuntimeException:takePicture failed:takePicture failed" . Any recommendations? looking fwd to giving you 5 stars... Alb

Hi! I think that problem is caused by the incompatibility of the app with the newest version of the Android Camera API. I am going to resolve this issue as soon as possible, as it should be an easy fix.

Won't even let me download the app on the link

17 เมษายน 2562, lorinet13

Try copying the link and opening it in a web browser like Chrome. Note that you cannot download files directly from Garmin Connect Mobile.

Hi! I get an error when I push either the photo or the video button on my garmin vivoactive hr. I use samsung galaxy note 4 . Where can I send you a screenshot of the error?

6 เมษายน 2562 | Version 1.0.1

Dear developer, the application is excellent. But there are a couple of nuances. It is not downloaded through the connect connection, I had to copy the link and download via the browser. The screen becomes very dark. My device, ggarmin fenix 5x plus and oukitel k 10000. In general, the application is promising. I wish good luck in your work.

Dear user! Thank you for the excellent feedback!

Didn't work at all. It kept saying that I didn't have the app installed on my watch but I did. I even Uninstalled and reinstalled it on both the phone and the watch and rebooted both multiple times but nothing worked.

24 มีนาคม 2562 | Version 1.0.1

It is doesn't work!!! My devices: vivoactive 3 watch + android huawei p9 plus

24 มีนาคม 2562, lorinet13

Does the companion app crash when you take a picture? If so, it seems that your phone is not supported by the camera API that this app uses.

Have you tried to download it in a full web browser like Chrome? If the link does not work, try the following link:
