For some reason it suddenly tracks my strength training like cardio asking me for time and speed instead of allowing me to enter sets and reps. I used to love this app idk what happened but it's super frustrating. Still tracks steps. Edit: 3/1/24: It had started working correctly and allowing me to enter "exercises" for strength training and now it doesn't. So I guess it's hit or miss and I'm stuck with it bc I can't afford a different device.

Turned on all notif as per other reviews here. Same issues! App won't allow a screen shot. Therefore can't save the server 3 msg error. And post to be helpful... more nonsense. Kind of Bummer shtWARE Stuff aint working. So tired of the endless notifications. I finally turned off ALL notifications from this nuisance. I recommend you do the same. Also... recommending I set up the device over and over.... yet the servers can't be connected to msg showing up over and over... it's to much.

Love it! Does an excellent job of keeping track of my running and encouraging my workouts. Gives great running goals and has kept me motivated. Best running app on the market. If I had one criticism, it would be that I wish the biking and swimming platforms were as robust as the running for triathletes. On the whole they are good, just not as fantastic as the running tracking. Also the indoor pool accuracy isn't great, unfortunately.
