Apple Watch 4 GPS Tracking App

Postby Big Wally » Wed Jun 19, 2019 3:35 am

What is the best App to use so that the GPS tracks my Foiling path and displays it on a map while using my Apple Watch 4?

Thanks

BW

The standard Nike work-out app or the Surf app called Sessions.

Or just use the Strava app? Or does that not work with Watch only but needs a phone?

Zef, was featured on topic on this forum. I tried it and it’s quite good.

Also, there’s an app called Waterspeed (has a free version with some limitations).

I would recommend WorkOutDoors
The guy is on the macrumor forums and regularly adds functionality petiole ask for . Without a doubt it’s my fave app for gps . I use it over Strava and all the others
It doesn’t require a phone to record and you can customise the screens to be relevant to what you do

I’ve been using Strava. It’s one of the few apps that lets you log an activity as kitesurfing... but you have to log it as a run from your watch and then change it to kitesurfing on your phone or the app later.

Tried a few, Sessions seemed to not want to sync for me at times and didn't put the GPS log into the Activity app.

Currently using Workouts++ and it's working fairly well. You can select plenty of different sports though only certain ones will give you live speed, distance details. So I just use Cycling and change the name to Kitesurfing.

Plenty of options, I was also using the native workout app, then Strava. Started using Waterspeed a few months back and much prefer it's data and presentation. Also love that it's sailing/watersport specific.
