    Hello,

    Your podcast describes the app running on a Pebble.

    The Watch App home page only indicates that it runs on Garmin’s Videoactive HR device.

    Can you tell me whether it runs on both, and if not, which one is supported at this point ?

    Thanks

    Yes, we apologize for the confusion, but events have overtaken us and we haven’t had a chance to revise all of our information.

    The raceQs smart watch app started life on the Pebble smart watch, then Pebble released the Time, Round and Pebble 2, and then in December 2016, went out of production.

    In April 2017 we released the app on the Garmin Vivoactive HR and in July we also released it for the Garmin Quatix 5 and fenix 5.

    As long as the Pebble app store remains in operation (entirely out of our hands), the app will continue to run on all Pebble watches except the Round. but it will have no further upgrades, or fixes. All of our development efforts are now directed to Garmin product line.

    We operate entirely independently of Pebble and Garmin, so have to “bend with the wind”.

    The app is still in Beta testing, meaning we continue to frequently update the code and that unfortunately results in the app often differing from the support documentation.

    Again, apologies for the confusion, but sometimes life is just like that.

    Thanks a lot Alan.

    Can you tell me if there’s a list of features and functions that currently work, and ones that are next up for release ?

    And…. will this functionality be added to the iPhone app ?

    Thanks again.

    Have you looked at the user guide on the home page (raceqs.com/smart-watch) ? It covers most of the functionality, and we will be adding to it as we progress.

    The future? Traditionally we software developers don’t give away too much before it’s ready, mainly because we don’t know what is possible till it’s done, we don’t want to promise more than we can deliver and we don’t want to give away our good ideas before we’ve completed them!

    We would love to hear any suggestions for improvements.

    As to adding this functionality to the iPhone app: the whole thrust of the watch app is that it doesn’t need a phone to operate, so retro-fitting it to the phone app doesn’t seem to be a productive use of our resources.

    Cheers,
