Couple things: Please add "lifetime steps" and"year to date steps" not the last 6 or 12 months!! I want to know where I'm at from January, and where I was at last year this day. Please add way to share activities on facebook! Please add water intake tracking! I don't like having to use Under Armor apps to keep track of calories and intake this should be part of your proprietary app! But again I know you guys are working hard and can't wait to see what other cool stuff you will add. Thank you!
App helps monitor my post- operation resting and workout heart rate. Also counts my steps to compare daily providing goals to achieve. Focused deep sleep quest is beneficial for quicker recover and healing. I love this machine and don't want to take it off. Glad it's water proof to 100 meters. Swimming pool here I come. Happy Father's Day to me.
Gets worse with each update! The same connection issues as others have stated. Never had that problem until the latest update. Calorie count is now WAY, WAY off, as of the latest update. When I turn off everything, my phone & watch at bed time, the heart rate tracker still shows activity in your app for that period. That started with the update prior to the latest. Smh, pitiful, absolutely pitiful.
So far, not a bad app. The information is a bit scattered therefore the interface could be better. I got a deal on a Vivosmart HR. The only issue was calibrating the stride length. It took some time however it's close to being correct. I go by time and HR more than measured distance so not a huge issue.
It's pretty good... Like others have said more functionality with the sleep tracker...need to be able to update, create workouts inside the app, ala Runtastic,.... And the option to hear voice cues on workouts through the app.....
My phone is a Nexus 5X, the smaller one of the last Nexus phone. My phone used to work very well, with several hundred MB RAM available before using this Garmin connect mobile app. After this is installed, my phone has almost no free RAM all the time. I have to manually force it to stop when I am not syncing with my vivoactive HR. After I manually force it to stop, the phone works fine again like before. So this is very inconvenient, although the app is very good in terms of features.
