hello, just bought the garmin fenix 6. Will test the JMG app in parallel with the surfr app. There is not much review or forum discussions on this app but it has been downloaded 25k times. So it is popular. Will let you know in a week or so, when i tested it.
I'm very interested in your feedback. I have been using surfr but I just see the hight as a notification on my watch... if the Garmin app works well It might be worth the cost of not having to drag my phone, since I do not get reception in some of the places I kiteboard anyway.

Hi Guys,
Anyone use this Garmin app https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/36d0 ... 789b8e39cf for jump tracking? If so I'm curious about which watch you used it with and what your experience is/was. I saw some mentions of it in the "2019 Watches" post but it was for older versions.

I've been looking for an alternative way to get an estimate of jump height but don't want a Woo/PIQ so looking for alternatives. It's either get a compatible Garmin watch for this app or use the Surfr app with a cell phone. I don't really like the idea of mounting my phone on my board(s) because that's not an optimal place to put a jump tracker - it should be on the upper body or harness for the least amount of vertical influence from waves or "woosting" cheats. Plus I have multiple boards.

If Surfr worked with the phone around my neck then I'd be OK with that but not sure if the app works that way. If this app Garmin app works then I'd buy one of their watches since I need a new fitness tracker smartwatch anyway.

Hi . What about your test finally? Is the jump measurements pretty accurate ??
