didn't work. I set it up, started it, then went out for a bike ride. After about 14 miles I tested it by throwing my phone on the ground at about 15mph and disnt touch the phone for about 1 minute. no alert nothing. so then I tried having it on the screen and again dropped it, left it and no alert. running s20+. They tried to help but then stopped replying to my emails as more issues arose.

Hello! The incident detection is very good at identifying false vs real incident events as it's been trained on thousands of real-world incidents over the last few years. Let's take a closer look together? Reach out to us at support@k-safe.com

Useless App, it erased every progress, including all the analyses & KM distance progress, and i lost my whole sweatcoin, don't waist your time, this app is meant to drain your battery & collect your information, Alertts aren't working properly either

It was working great, but now it tells me to update the app when I have the latest version. I even uninstalled and reinstall the app, now I can't even use it. Make sure the update is available for both ios and Android, right now only iPhone users are able to use this app.
