  • How to: App Settings

    For anyone who has downloaded an app that supports the new App Settings feature, but doesn't yet know how to set these settings, here's a short explanation:

    With App Settings you can configure the way a Connect IQ app behaves. This is especially useful for watch faces and data fields, because they don't allow any input on your device.
    At this moment most apps don't support app settings yet, because it's only been introduced last week with the new Connect IQ 1.2.1 release. With those that do you can, for example, change the colors on a watch face or set the heart rate zones in a data field.
    You can set the values of the app settings in Garmin Express or Garmin Connect Mobile.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Setting App Settings with Garmin Express
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    • Connect your device to your computer and start Garmin Express;
    • Push the Manage Apps button;






    NOTE: This marks an update from the original thread.
    • Right-Click on the desired app/datafield/watchface/widget
    • Click "Settings".
    • Change the settings and push the Save button to save the changes to your device.




    If you want you can check whether the settings have been properly saved to your device by reopening the settings window. When you do, it will always load the values from your device.

    Setting App Settings with Garmin Connect Mobile (on Android)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You can set the App Settings using Garmin Connect Mobile on Android. On iPhone the layout may differ, but the proces is basically the same.
    The order of the settings in Garmin Connect Mobile is sometimes mixed up. This might be confusing if the app has a lot of settings. In that case I recommend you use Garmin Express.
    • Open the menu and select Garmin Devices;



    • From the list, select your device;
    • Push the Connect IQ Apps button;



    • Select the type of the app for which you want to change the settings. In this case we are going to change the settings of a Data Field;
