Great, except for 1 major issue. You can't compare time and distance at the same time. All the stats except for the basic "by 17:20 you had run 1.5 miles". It will show you a replay of the run but no time and distance associated with it. Since I do a lot of interval training, I want to compare segments of the run, not just by the mi or km. You'd also think the app would be able to figure out your mile speed from a run if switching from km since the entire run is tracked. Not the case.

So I'm a former Fitbit user and while I like the app, it does lack a few "user interface" things that I prefer on fitbit. Overall, it's much better and more accurate. So, fitbits user interface is extremely streamlined with the various different features it has, but it really lacks details because the Fitbit itself is a simple device. The Garmin app has a lot going on. Now that I've had it a week I think I prefer it, but I was pretty worried I wanted to go back to Fitbit when I started.

When creating a new Course under training and planning, there is no way in this app to turn off "Follow Popular Routes". On the desktop site I can switch from "Follow Popular Routes" to "Freehand", which allows me to add a new point where the map thinks there is an inaccessible path, but on this app I cannot do this. This issue needs to be fixed! Please add a way for users to enable "Freehand" when drawing a Course route!
