Garmin Connect vs Fitbit My first review was 6/12/16. Galaxy S7and Garmin Vivoactive HR is now able to sync w/out gps turned on. I've been on a 24 mile hike in the North Cascades and tracks are accurate. Garmin should beable to log calories and wieght without using 3rd party apps like fitness pal. Keep up the hard work developers. I own the Fitbit Charge HR and the Vivoactive HR.
Not syncing data completely Since update it has dropped data.. please fix as the last 2weeks of data should still be in my vivofit i would like to have that data
Overall good Love all the in-depth info, have vivosmart Hr and the gps tracking is great. Heart rate info is useful. One issue is it seems to allocate too many calories for steps. In the morning when I've done like 200 steps the app says I've burned 500 active calories. This can't be true? Apart from this great app
Bluetooth issues This app makes you connect to your device in the app instead of through the normal Bluetooth settings. Everyday I have to turn Bluetooth on and off with the app open to get them to connect and sync. Please fix this to work through the normal Bluetooth settings on my phone and not this poorly developed app. Still have 20 days to decide whether to return my Garmin device out not, so far not impressed because of this app.
By far the best This app is great for monitoring your fitness. I have tired a few others but none are up to this standard. I love the fact you can see the routes you have run and a break down of the time taken. Not only that it also works along side my fitness pal, so if you are into that you can log you food intake. I love my garmin!
App is not good after update After recent update time on Forerunner235 does not sync automatically to Android Galaxy Note 5. Online support could also not assist in setting up email notices to exchange server. Took visit to regional office to sort out. Smart notices not on same standard as smart watch such as Pebble BUT then again, it is more of a fitness watch than smart watch. Forerunner 235 is quick to locate satellites but takes rather long to register heart rate before a run. Comments mostly hardware related- app was quite good.
