I wanted a stopwatch on my FR235. I picked this one, and the Stopwatch widget by r.485 (https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/330c059e-b534-4594-9372-064f5d04681f#0)
This one is an app, the other is a widget. Since it’s an app, it means extra button presses to start it up, especially if you have several apps. But it has one big advantage, it does not time out and remains visible, on the watch face.
The widget does one advantages: It’s easier to get to, but the scree does time out, even when running. The widget stopwatch is still running, you just must push buttons to get back to it. However, you must stay on the stopwatch screen, i.e. you can’t have it running in the background, something the widget mentioned above does let you do, whether you want to or not.
App is nice as it has on-screen instructions, the font used is quite small. Would have been nice if one of the app screenshots included the instruction page. Here they are:
“Press ‘start’/’stop’ to toggle stopwatch
Press ‘down’ to add a lap
Hold ‘up’ to see laps
Press ‘back’ to reset/leave app”
Simple and works
Not sharing up on my 735XT
I concur with Ben Howard. The app made noise with every push of a button even after I turned Key Tones off in Settings - System - Sounds. It should respect the wishes of the device user.
Bardzo dobra aplikacja. Stoper działa poprawnie, szybko można go znaleźć na zegarku.
I wish there was a way to disable the chime for start/stop
Downloaded and installed but cant seem to find out how to access it on my 735xt someone help please
Muito bom,gosto muito desse widget
Major battery drain for some reason.
As a HS runner, GPS watches are not as useful for track specific workouts as the good old stopwatch. The GPS may not always record a 400 m or 200m track accurately, and neither do indoor running modes which utilize the accelerometer. For a stop watch, I think 3 functions should be incorporated and quite necessary if you use the watch like I do. 1 & 2 are lap time and total time. The current version does this just...ok, I just wish they were either the same size (for ease of clarity) or switched (total time on top and lap time on bottom) due to the size of the wearables. The third piece of data is displaying lap time and number on a pop-up screen once the lap button has been pushed. Even though this information can be seen later, it is useful to see it at a glance quickly and without hassle in real time. With those improvements, I think people would enjoy this stopwatch app much more. There is no need for a stop watch to be too complex, but too simple may not get the job done right either
It is awesome, but please make it so you can see the time while operating it.
Howdy Yu download it on Garmin vivo active it says I can download it on the iPad but when it finishes sinking it does not pop up on my Garmin vivoactive
SImple to use and works perfectly on my 735XT.
