Garmin Play Clock App
« on: July 08, 2019, 12:57:40 PM »
For those of you with Garmin watches, I've written an app that acts as a 40/25 play clock (and a 60 second timeout timer). It's not up on the store quite yet, but I'll post it if I get a few requests -- I've tested it on my FR235, so if you have a different model let me know and I'll make sure it works on those models first.

Also, if there are any extra features that aren't included, I'm open to ideas. I do want to keep it relatively simple, low memory/battery usage and no-frills. It's just a giant number showing the time remaining.

I'm plotting out one that will include a game clock as well, but that will be a bit more complex and needs a fundamental redesign.

Current features:
40 second play clock, vibrates at 25 seconds and then at 5-4-3-2-1-0.
25 second play clock, vibrates at 5-4-3-2-1-0.
60 second timeout, vibrates at 15 seconds.

At any time, hitting the appropriate button will reset the clock to 40/25/60. For example, if the 40 second clock is under 25 and you need to reset to 25, that's a single button push.

I'll get it up soon -- what models of watches do you guys have? I want to make sure I don't forget to make it compatible for something

I have the Forerunner 220. Will this work on it by any chance?

I don't think you can download apps to the 220, at least there's no category for that model in the store.

The app has been posted in the ConnectIQ store:

Direct Link

It's been built for the Forerunner, vivoactive or fenix watches. If you need a different model, let me know.


I also added a couple extra alerts:

On the 40 second clock, you get a single vibration at 25 seconds and 10 seconds -- then every second starting at 6 (instead of 5). That way, if you need to give the 5 second signal, you have a 5 and 1 second warning.

For the 25 second clock, it doesn't vibrate right away, but the 10 and under 6 is the same.

The 60 second timeout clock only vibrates at 15 seconds remaining, as previously described.
