Excellent app

The app works very well for tracking my ski workouts. It displays all the relevant data and has a nice report for me after I’m done.

Only thing I’d like changed is to report speed in minutes per mile rather than miles per hour but that’s I minor issue.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your kind review! I’ll add this request to our feature backlog for future development.

Looks good so far

Was the only cross-country / Langlauf ski app that I could find for the Apple Watch. It would be great if there was the option to measure distances in kilometres rather than miles so that it is more useful in Europe please.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for posting a great review! This bug was recently discovered and is fixed in a forthcoming update. Thank you for your patience!

First time using this app and it pinned my starting location as half a mile away from the actual starting location (start and stop should have been the same location). It also said I was going 61.7 mph at that start. Not sure if any of the stats from this trip are accurate. Frustrating since this wasn’t a free app. I really wanted this to work...

Developer Response ,

I appreciate you taking the time to let me know of an issue. The accuracy will largely depend on your device. We’ll be taking a closer look at filtering out inaccurate results and improving your experience.
