Yeah, we are in a fleeting season of boosting winds - that is when all PBs happen in our area. By the way, if you have not used or even heard of ELF SWIFT kites, I highly recommend them. It is something in between SOUL and SONIC, but only takes the best features from both of these kites :D . Plus it is about half the price of SOUL :!: . Last session I was riding SOUL 12 and ELF SWIFT 10 back to back. Not only Swift is more enjoyable to ride, but it also jumped higher (by a tiny bit, but still...). If anyone is interested, PM me, I'll help you to get one.

I hear you about GPX track - it is a popular request. There are a few reasons why it is not being developed further (besides me having a full time job elsewhere), which I don't want to go into at the moment. I'll let you know if anything changes.

Is there any option to develop an Woo app to show heights on the Garmin Fenix directly without an Handy between?

Probably no, woo screen developer has been active on kiteforum fenix thread and has done apps for fenix gps jump which he removes from Garmin service and GPS track.

For Woo support. Maybe Garmin api doesn't support bluetooth to listen data Woo sends.

Only the latest Garmin watches support Bluetooth API - in Fenix line you need at least Fenix 5 or newer.

It is possible to develop a WOO app for Garmin watches supporting Bluetooth API - I might try it at some point, just not any time soon.

FYI. I just released a small update to the Woo Screen app. I just added invalid jumps filter. Now the app doesn't show the jumps that will be removed when uploading to the WOO server.

Hi Baptiste,
They are basically the same app, only interface is slightly changed in the official Woo Sports app. You can just pick one that looks better to you. Also, for now only Woo Screen app works on a phone too.

Hi All. I found some time to make a little change to the "Woo Screen" phone app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .wooscreen

For users who use phone app with watches that don't support "WOO" app directly, you could use a phone to create push notifications visible on most watches (or even possibly fitness trackers with display). Now the screen of the phone can be turned of during the session. If you are going to use this feature, please disable "Battery life optimization" for "Woo Screen" app to prevent OS from killing the app in background. "Battery life optimization" option is located in phone settings - exact instructions on how to reach it are based on your phone model and OS lelel, so you would have to look it up.

I also updated the erroneous jumps filter. There was a small discrepancy with the official WOO filter algorithm. Now on your watch (or phone) you shouldn't see any jumps that are not in your WOO session saved by the official WOO Sports app.

Have fun kiting with WOO :thumb:
