Works with FDF rowers
I have First Degree Fitness Apollo V, and this is one of the few apps that works with it, and for a free app it is miles ahead of their original one.
However, it does lack some features. I’d like to be able to delete a workout (haven’t found how to). And calories count passed to Apple Health is accumulated set of averages per point, which leads to 20 min workout burn about 160,000 cal.
This app looks sleek. And when I first set it up it seemed to work nice and easily with my Bluetooth Comm. I connected it to Strava and it uploaded my first two workouts. I also found it connected quickly to my TickrX HRM.
However, today it wouldn’t upload my workout to Strava. Then I found that I could add manual activities, but not delete them. And when I looked for a help section or a way to contact app support I haven’t found a thing or a way to contact support.
So when the app works it works great. Doesn’t have bells and whistles, but it looks nice and does what it needs to do. However, when it doesn’t work there doesn’t seem to be any way to get any help or support which is very frustrating.
Needs some serious improvements and testing.
I wanted to like this app. The problems are, however, numerous. First of all it is not tested enough. The connectivity is not very stable ( it often takes multiple cycle of restarting the Bluetooth module, the application, etc to connect). Quite often the connection seems established, but the app is not reading the module and The numbers are frozen and not changing (it starts reading abc then stops). The app is not reading the heart rate from the phone. After my 40 min workout the average heart rate (is 50) which makes absolutely no sense. The calories are also not recorded properly. The averages are generally useless if the workout involves power strokes and periods of rest. Basically this app needs some significant improvements and bug fixes to be useful.
