Simple & Convenient

The app, in my opinion, is a must for Garmin users. Especially, if you’re like me and keep a training log, but aren’t always consistent with updating the log. Or it can serve as your training log if you aren’t into keeping one by hand.

It is also very helpful for athlete and coach communication. Because you can screen shot your heart rate information to your coach so that you can adjust workouts, and track your progress through heart rate.

The app is essential for not only tracking heart rate, workouts, and other health factors that can affect your training. But also for adjusting the device settings; such as, the watch face, heart rate levels, notifications etc.

My over all experience with app has been good. But ultimately if you’re looking into downloading the app it is important to ask yourself what do want out of your training and device. For example, if you have a Garmin watch and aren’t necessarily serious about training and/or your not that interested in sats you don’t need to download the app. However if you’re the opposite you should most definitely download because it will help you very much as it is simple and convenient to use over all.

Endlessly Frustrating

First off, let’s be clear, this isn’t an app but rather a digital torture device. You’d think an app from a multi-billion dollar company would be at least marginally better than one built by Jerry and Cleetus in the shed behind their mom’s house, but you’d be wrong. The first problem is the constant trouble syncing. Over and over you’ll get the little red circle with an exclamation point, and despite doing everything from hitting retry to reinstalling the app it’ll keep happening. Now whether it’s actually struggling to sync or just claiming to be struggling to sync I can’t say. Even when I receive the error icon I can still send data back to my phone, so who knows, maybe it’s syncing maybe it’s not. Secondly, the IQ App Store will not display apps it doesn’t believe are compatible with your device, even if they claim to be, and if you round about find the apps you want by using your browser it won’t let you download them. In my case I have an Edge Explore unit which should be compatible with the Bontrager light control app according to the compatible device listing on the app data page, but the IQ App Store disagrees, and insists I add a compatible device to my account to download the app. This leads to my last gripe; good luck getting support. Garmin is more than happy to take your 200, 300, 500 dollars, but they’re sluggish in assisting you with getting it or this required app to work.

Poor at everything it tries to do

This app has two primary functions and its poor at both of them.

Function 1: Face It
You're supposed to be able to design your own watch face and install it on your watch. But the design is more limited in its options than the design-it-yourself option that lives on the watch already. And even if you use this feature, when you attempt to install that watch face, the app just says "installing" for over 30 minutes. Retry, same thing. Restart app and retry, same thing.

Function 2: Select apps and download them to your watch.
a) The apps listed include those who want permission to send/receive to/from the Internet, access data from other apps, run in the background even when not being used, etc. This app shouldn't allow such invasive 3rd party apps.
b) The filter for apps when you're searching is very limited. You can enter text to search for and sort by rating/popularity. But there's no option to filter in/out apps that charge money. This app doesn't list how much those apps charge. There's no option to filter in/out apps that require this/that permission. There's no option to sort/filter based on Developer.
c) Even when you find an app to download, it's usually put into a download queue that can take hours to process instead of just downloading it immediately.

The watch itself is GREAT but try to use it without this app.
