Apple Watch App

I know people are still waiting for an android app, which is in testing, and at some point there will be an apple tv app, but my question is: Did the idea for an Apple Watch App ever come up?

I am thinking of a companion app, not to do my workouts on a tiny screen. :slight_smile:

Checking my calendar and passport with last activities would be cool.

Would also be good for the running and swimming workouts for the multisport plans

I would also like to be able to use my Apple watch as a heart rate monitor.

I demand! I demand! :partying_face:
I realize just wishing for something is no way to go.

This is why I am working on a concept. Stay tuned (and be patient with me). Who knows, maybe I even learn something along the way.

OMG man, haven’t you noticed how hard it is just for us to get Android out the door? :slight_smile:

Haha, no worries @David.McQuillen.KoS , I noticed. :slight_smile: I hope you know I am not really demanding anything - just mocking myself.

We have all the time in the world, and I understand there are a lot of more important features to implement. Hell, even I want to see many other things much more than a watch app.

I have nothing to do than just wait for all of you guys to do the work - and an amazing job.
In the meantime, I am looking for something to pass the time and get busy with. Trying to figure out how to get more SUF into my life.

If you have an idea how I can use my time in the suffer-verse in a better way, hit me up. :slight_smile:

My girlfriend and I both use our Apple Watches as our heart rate monitors on Zwift. I’m not interested in buying other monitors just for Sufferfest. When this functionality is available in Sufferfest, I’ll consider switching, but until then, we’re sticking with Zwift.

FYI if anyone wants to use their Apple Watch as a HR monitor with SUF, there’s a way to do it using the North Pole Engineering heartbeatz device, which essentially connects to your watch and rebroadcasts HR as ANT+ (and I think BLE too). Works great, and also works with my bike computer so I can go ride outside without a HR strap.

What hardware are you running your Sufferfest app on?
