Fasting Widget


TL;DR: Pressing the enter button will flip between pages, holding it will open menus. For touch devices tapping the screen will advance pages and long pressing will open menus. Some devices seem to require a mix between touch controls and physical buttons. You can add your birth date in the user settings to improve the accuracy of the calorie estimation.</p><p>For more information about the available settings and calorie calculation logic please consult the readme:</p>


1.2.0:</p><p>- Thanks to Oleksiy Mishchenko's contribution you can now track the time since your last fast. It will show up in the widget glances, as well as in the widget. For the widget it will replace the noun for fasting in the streak view, due to space constraints. This feature is optional, but enabled by default, you can always adjust it to your liking in the settings, if you don't want to be guilt tripped by your watch. It will take effect the next time you end a fast. Due to limitations for widgets this is also the best we can do regarding an "eating window" timer. There is no way for CIQ widgets to wake up at a set time, so automatically starting or prompting a fast after let's say 8 hours of eating is sadly not possible. </p>

You can not set your starting time, or the exact time you want to fast, so totally unusable

I would appreciate if you would read the manual or at least the description, as I took quite some time to document the use of the widget. You simply start the fast, when you want to begin fasting. This is by design, as picking date/time values on the watch is a cumbersome process. The widget provides a variety of common fast lengths like 16 hours, 20 hours or 36 hours by default, but you are able to define up to three custom goal values in the widget settings, available through the Connect app on your phone or Garmin Express on your computer.

Hi I like the app... But I don't know where or how is it recorded on my connect app..

22 กรกฎาคม 2563, rfeiner

Hi Michelle, as discussed in our e-mail correspondence, there are no records being kept besides the streak. It is also not possible to seamlessly integrate with the Connect app as a 3rd party developer. All the best, Robert

Great app to track fasting. I agree with prior comments to at least be able to edit the start time. People forget these things sometimes.

Very nice graphical interface. What would make the widget better is if we could edit start and finish times. And also if some kind of record and history was saved as well as statistics of fasted hours per week!

Hi Andreas, thanks for using the widget and leaving a review! Not being able to edit fast times was a deliberate design choice, because to me fasting is about commitment and sticking to your goals. That being said I'm currently working on a way to edit to allow back dating the start time to some degree, because sometimes we forget to start our fast directly after finishing our meal. Unfortunately, I'm already very close to the memory limit on some devices, so adding a statistics page probably isn't possible. I've added it to the requested feature lists though and will look into it.

I've been waiting for ages for someone to create a decent app for fasting & you've excelled with this. I normally use an app on my phone but ive deleted it in favour of this on my watch (fenix 6x pro solar). Well done developer.

Hi Neil, thanks for trying the widget and the praise. I'm glad you enjoy using it!

Het was even uitzoeken. Er zijn veel opties die mij nog niet duidelijk zijn. Ik puzzel nog even verder. Maar hij telt af. En geef calorieën aan. Dat is wel grappig.

There is a link to the manual at the very top of the settings menu and here on the store page as well. The space in the menu itself is simply too limited to explain options in detail. You definitely want to read the manual before using this widget or you will miss out on most of the customization features. Here you go:

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
