I really enjoy the virtual challenges. It inspires me to log my miles while I get to learn about different locations. I plan to eventually visit many of these locations in person and learning about them through this app is a bit like travel research in addition to fun fitness. I am so happy that someone created these challenges and app. I look forward to getting into the other features that I haven't tried yet (teams, friends, etc).

I bought one of the challenges with a medal from Pacer after being with Conqueror for almost a year and omg, this is the most difficult to use, bulky, unintuitive app I've ever tried to use for anything. Right now it won't sync my Garmin watch because it says the watch is in a different time zone, which yeah, it is, because I'm traveling. But the phone and app are with me, so why doesn't the app update its time zone? Won't be doing other challenges, might not even finish this one.

Sorry for the trouble. When Pacer is connected with Garmin, Pacer pulls over data from Garmin Server end to record. The "different timezone" note will auto disappear the next day, and it will not influence the normal data synchronization from Garmin. Please email us with details. We will look into it specifically. Thank you!

Calculation of distance is wrong. The route I take is roughly between .75 and .80 of a mile. Lately it's showing I have walked over 2 miles on the same route. It also does not track the GPS accurately it shows the route I took over a mile opposite in the direction I went. I have location on and allow GPS but it's been recording wrong all week. The previous week it was just working fine. Would give higher rating if this got fixed.

Sorry to know Pacer didn't get an accurate GPS track for you. Please email us at, with details and screenshots related. Our team will look into it specifically for you and solve the problem as soon as possible. GPS works great for most people, and we hope we can fix this for you very soon. Many thanks for using Pacer!
