I switched to wahoo as it records both heart rate and speed+cadence using BLE to my smartphone. No sense in blowing a ton of money on Garmin kit. 1 star less because it's not as customisable as I'd like it to be, and the calorie burn calculation may be off a bit. Another feature missing is the ability to save my workouts such that I'm able to retrieve my previous workouts after a reinstallation.
Since 24 January I have not been able to connect my Tickr to my Huawei phone. The blue tooth device picks up and pairs and the device and links. It shows my heart beat at the point where you save the sensor but will not pick up the heart beat when you go into the app to start the walk. It was working perfectly before.
Ive used endomondo scence 2010. This app and equipment work wonderfull together. And for indoor treadmill i give it a A++ over any app and i am die hard endomondo. Wonve you calibrate it.. it works Awsone. Next best thing to real running with true gps stats. A++ And all intetgate to my fitness pall.. were all come together. All app you use. I use endomondo, wahoo and fitbit charge 2. All is uploded and intergrated. So on the end.. i just pull up my fitness pal and thete it is. Then each of the three apps i use, i can digg deep into each for down and dirty ststs. Awsome!!
Not possible to have a steady workout in erg mode when using other apps. Wahoo changes power level whenever returning to it's app from another. Very annoying. Recent update renders spindown calibration broken. Bluetooth connection seems very buggy and constantly disconnects... Making workouts frustrating. Would love to use my kickr as it's designed.
I'd rate it a lot higher than 2 stars but the lack of Google Fit integration really drags this app down. This is the ONLY app on my phone that I have to keep updating with my weight. All other apps get it from Google Fit. Also, having to push my workouts to an intermediate app like Strava just so that Strava will upload my workout to Google Fit is a pain. I honestly really just need to find a different app for tracking my workouts and sharing that with Google Fit.
Used to be great until I swipe over to the map and im always in africa or somewhere in the indian ocean. Have to hit the location button to snap back to where my blue dot is. The map also used to have the red line that showed route traveled. No more of that either. The map is the only feature that needs fixes!
