I am very excited to announce the release of the first update since we spat the dummy with Garmin and spent 12 months trying and failing to get the Apple Watch to work as a sailing watch.
During that time we developed some neat new ideas, many of which we have implemented in this version including speed history and an improved wind history display.
It now runs on all the modern Garmin round watches: F5/Q5 and variants, FR 645 and 935, DM Bravo, Descent, Vivoactive-3 and of course the original Vivoactive-HR.
To accommodate many of the enhancements from the Apple Watch version and to overcome the memory limitations, the app has been into two: one for the starting sequence and the other for racing after the gun, linking the two at the expiration of the timer. It’s a little bit clunky, but I think it works really well, and has provided some much needed memory space for further developments.
Check it out in the Garmin App Store https://apps.garmin.com/en-AU/search?q=raceQs
Please Note: Download the two apps: raceQs (STARTING) AND QsPlus
And don’t forget to try it out at home (do the Training exercise) to get familiar with the new architecture.
