Ratings and Reviews
I purchased the pro version which allows you to set a count down timer for the start of a race. When I race I-20’s we use a 5 minute starting sequence. When I race windsurfers we sometimes use a 3 minute sequence. You can choose any length you like. It then starts tracking you while the time is counting down for the start while tapping you on the wrist when the start is getting close. It drops a pin on the map when you start the starting sequence and then drops a pin on the map when the flag go up “the actual start of the race” then drops a pin when you finish, which you have to press the stop buy when you finish. It lays the tracks down on a map with color indicating your speed. FYI, it shows the map stuff on my iPhone when I get back from sailing. This was all tracked with the Apple Watch 3. I can also easily send all the info to my iPad using airdrop. For me, it’s a great app for racing sail boats and windsurfing. Really easy to use. I Highly recommend it. I don’t usually leave reviews, but I felt I had to because I like this app so much. Can’t wait to try it out this winter when I go Iceboating and achieve speeds near 70 mph.
Essential for Sailers
Wow!! Do I like it and then some!! I sail on the Charles River and started to track my sailing late 2017 and found an app that did it pretty well. I record about 28 trips and then I found Waterspeed. I am instantly impressed as I ONLY need my Series 3 Apple Watch to record my sails. Previously I had to take my phone and watch to record trips. With Waterspeed I can see my trips played back with a visualization of my HR - Speed - Time - Heading. So cool! Waterspeed also uses colors to indicate your speed on a map (green, yellow, orange, red). I have 4 sails with Waterspeed and each time I’m more eager to look at the results and see where I had speed on the sail and how I performed. Awesome!! The data that is gathered is complete. Each sail tracks duration, distance, wind speed, avg speed, top speed, best speed 10 sec, best speed 20 sec, best speed 500m, best speed 1km, best speed 1nm, HR min, HR max, HR avg, calories, heading, and location. Also, I did purchase the Pro membership. BTW there is start timer too. Wow!
Best tracker I’ve used for kayaking
Absolutely amazing app!
One of the problems I had with a lot of “tracker” apps for kayaking is that they required you to use your phone, which causes problems when you keep it in a dry bag in a hatch on your kayak. This app solves that problem! I can easily start/pause/stop my trips from my apple watch which means I no longer need to take my phone out.
The data that the app collects is perfect and works very well with the apple health app. You can even import/export your data and full cloud sync’ing. A lot of times developers just stop working on apps, but I don’t think there’s been a week without an update on this app and so much stuff gets added!
Another amazing feature is the trip editing. A couple times I would forget to stop my trip before packing up and driving away, then it completely screws up the data since it thought I was going 60mph in a kayak. But I can easily cut out the section of the trip that’s in a vehicle and the data works perfectly fine!
Lastly I wont forget to mention the amazing developer(s). I had an issue about 2 years ago with something on the app and within a day he messaged me back with a solution and even went as far as making sure it worked perfectly. Easily earned a life long user of this app because how good the support is!
