My wave count is always ridiculously inaccurate. Any time you stop and then paddle again it must be counting as a wave. Info doesn’t seem to transfer back well into Garmin Connect app either. Really get session total time & heart rate info & that’s about it. If there’s a way to fix the wave count thing & the show that in the app summary page then it’d be sweet
Read the instructions, both questions are answered there. Wave count depends on the settings you enter and what Garmin shows in their app is up to them I have no control of that.
Seems good, although gave my wave count as 37 during the surf session I used it while long boarding. This is wildly inaccurate (I got 5 or 6) but the other functions seem to work fine.
You need to look at the settings, either increase the minimum speed for tracking or increase the minimum time. Counting waves while paddling out probably means also a poor GPS signal but it's hard to diagnose when you just leave a bad review as I get no diagnostic info or address to reply to
-wave tracking is useless wether it’s a long or short wave
-Barley any settings
Honestly no point in really even using it.
Garmins other surf app isn’t much better...
For a watch that can do so much well I don’t understand how far behind other brands Garmin is with apps.
Apple Watch has dawn patrol and Garmin has.. well... this! Rant over!!
The timer doesn't freeze and the wave tracking works just fine, there's plenty of users who have no problems that prove that. I don't know what settings you expect but it's designed for surfing not fiddling with settings? If you have a problem you could email me and we could work out why you're incapable of using this simple app.
Max speed is not showing in the main view and it appears in the data fields of the second tag. My device is fenix 5
Is this the app for Surfline sessions??
Very good app! My fenix 6s has been upgraded and depicts the waves when synced, however during surfing, wave count of stuck on zero!..
Since the app developer's hand are tied it works as well as can be expected. Hopefully Garmin will play nice in the future.
Works well enough after you read the app notes and understand the limitations put on the developer.
I seem to have a connection issue between watch and IOS connect app
I am unable to get the wave count: longest wave, total waves and max speed data???
I’m not sure if I’m missing a setting - is a manual available ?
A manual? No. A note explaining why you aren't getting those stats? Yes, it's literally the first thing in the apps description on the page you downloaded it from.
Thanks for leaving a 2 star review that really helps.
Fun app. I enjoyed my first surf with it last night. Viewed the map tracking in Garmin and then the sync to Strava and its really fun to look at. The wave count, speed, etc. data doesnt currently sync to Garmin, but reading the app details I believe that's an issue with the Garmin side. (Vivoactive 3 here) Thanks for making this. Its simple and really all i need to get heart rate details linked to my surf workouts and not have a big gap in my tracking when i surf vs bike or run.
Good app- needs better integration with the Garmin connect web app though as there is no waves tracker app for iPhone!
Unfortunately nothing I can do, garmin changed their connect app and there's no way for me to change it back, until they sort it out their end and that don't appear to have any plans to.
Very cool app but i have problems the app no export data to my garmin mobile app...
Garmin mobile is broken and doesn't work for surfing, you should use something like wavestracker, even Google maps does a better job than garmins app :D
Haven't really been able to work this app properly as I do not know how to set up...is there an instructions manual how to use and set-up...? It did locate my GPS data on my first surf session, but there are empty lines on my waves and wave count...?
