Skating App Professional

The Skating App Professional,  running on most Garmin wearables, supports you in improving your inline and ice skating performance by tracking the most important parameters like distance, speed, pace and time with high sensitivity GPS. Additionally ANT+™ compatible sensors for heart rate and temperature monitoring are supported1). It is designed as a watch app (and not a data field) for following reasons:

  • Simple to install and use
  • Arbitrary feature enhancement possible
  • Circumvent that some watches (e.g. vivoactive™) can only display two Connect IQ data fields

The main reason for having two similar applications is that you can have different interval user settings in both applications in order to avoid complex reconfiguration all the time.



Further information regarding requirements, installation, getting started, supported data fields and features as well as frequently asked questions can be found by clicking at the book icon on the left side.
