Hey guys! I've been working on introducing support for Garmin ConnectIQ devices on WheelLog for Android for the last couple days and I'm looking for people who would like to test / try it out. The fork with the changes is available here: https://github.com/marccardinal/WheelLogAndroid/tree/garmin-connect-iq I have a watch app available at: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/07a231a9-3f2f-4762-b0bb-b8a0b5594f40 with the code here: https://github.com/marccardinal/WheelLog-Garmin-ConnectIQ. I submitted PRs to both @JumpMaster and @palachzzz but it seems like I'm late to the party as both have low recent activity and from the forum I'm not sure who is maintaining the Play Store entry right now. The watch application has been tested on the Fenix 3 HR but I also have support for Fenix 5 series and I can adapt the layout to other watches upon request... they have so many models and variants that I didn't see the point in making it work for all of them without demand. Let me know what you think!
So here lately I’ve been thinking about the lack of 3rd party involvement in EUC riding. There are no aftermarket accessories (that I know of ), no good ride tracker apps , and no Garmin-like devices or sensors made for our needs . As a cyclist I’ve got the STRAVA app on my phone . I use it to track my rides. It’s a social app to some extent allowing you to follow other riders , view their rides , give them kudos and compete to some extent even if you don’t live near each other . It provides time , distance ,a map of your ride, elevation graphs , avg and top speed etc...( @Smoother ?) ask any cyclist and they will tell you “if it’s not on strava it didn’t happen “ I used it today to document my ride, and I must say , it did a great job. So this got me thinking ...someone should develop an app like this for EUC . The other great thing about the app is it’s ability to connect to a garmin device with linked sensors for speed , cadence, power and other such measurements. With an optional speed sensor attached to your wheel you can forgoe the GPS speed (which isn’t always accurate) and get a much more stable speed reading. So why not have one of these sensors that we could stick on to the wheel of our EUC. They are light and small so if designed properly wouldn’t effect the wheel in any way. So that’s it. Just some thoughts . Thanks for reading . ?
