Standlone Wear OS Support

I'd love to see standalone functionality on my Android Wear OS watch.

Ideally at least to: (or on an and/or basis)

-record track

-using the heart rate sensor

-auto pause


I don't even mind having no maps, recording a .gpx (or other format track) would be great,

I know the above sound a little too much at once.

Right now the only app doing this is Runtastic. Even Strava or Endomondo does not do it, either feature is missing.

I know the nature of Locus is not really being a fitness app however the above are not undoable I guess.

Is any of this in the works, any progress there?

Hello,

I recently haven't worked on the Wear for Locus Map add-on mainly in favor of Live Tracking service development but we are actually discussing this stand-alone function (without a standalone map) in our team and it looks like we might actually give it a try.

I don't know when we could start though, we will probably work on HRM function and extending functionality of track recording statistics/dashboard first.

Anyway thanks for the tips what you would like to see in stand-alone "mode", this is probably something we will go for.

Best Regards

Hi Milan,


I do appreciate your answer. I am also surprised as I normally get a dummy template answer saying "we will consider" . This is beyond that to me :)

I do not regret a single penny spent on Locus Pro :)


Keep going folks!

OMG Milan, Thank you. I just see the implementaion of HR measuered on the watch right now. It works great.

I see you're gonna come out with a standalone version too just simply tracking the route, no sophisticated map or so.


The money I spent on LocusMap Pro are the best pennies I gave out for software ! :)

Hello Zotmund,

I am glad you like the update and that it is working out for you. We had some trouble with synchronization of HR value so to be honest stand-alone mode for track recording would be the best solution for this. Still not sure if we are going to implement it though but we want to continue to improve the add-on so we'll see :)

Anyway thanks for your support!


Have a nice day

Milan
