  • Data Field: Eat! Drink! Reminder!

    This is the support thread for the data field "Eat! Drink! Reminder!"

    Info
    Are you also forgetting on your long run to eat and drink? Not any more... Set the alarm settings and be notified by vibration and/or a beep (vibration and beep not available on some devices).
    You have the option to set 5 different alarms.

    Fully functional without donations, but donations encouraged by an encouragement message.

    Can't speak for all the devices but I have this on my 920 natively. Alert set every 20 minutes with a message to eat/drink. Sometimes, simple is best ;-)

      I dislike some things about the native alarm functionality:
      * you can't set a custom message on a 735xt
      * I have to press a button to acknowledge the alarm (when I can avoid it I don't want to be pushing buttons)
      * when you acknowledge the alarm with the start button you stop the activity... so you have to press up or down button to acknowledge the alarm
      * I would have to re-create alarms in all activity profiles again, where I can now place the data field in several activity profiles

      So I think my version of the alarm is better :
      * custom alarm message
      * no button pushes required
      * usuable in multiple activity profiles

        installing

        I installed this on my vivoactive HR> I see it that it is installed via phone garmin connect . But I do not see it on my device.
        I have synced it several times. I got it to finally work under in an activity. Is there anyway to use without turning on an activity

          hi this app is a datafield so you have to customize your activity profile settings
          on my fr735xt this is activity settings -> data screens -> screen 1 -> choose layout -> fields -> connect iq -> eat drink reminder
          on your vivoactive hr this might be slightly different, in case it helps this is the owner manual of the vivoactive hr: http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/webhe...52C2B51CD.html

          Datafields can only be used within activities so you can not use it outside activities (it's not possible to write background processes in Connect IQ)

              Released v1.2:
              * when the alarm time coincides with an (auto)pause event avoid that the watch keeps buzzing and chirping (stops reminding you after 3 seconds)

                a feature request.... for biking I eat solid food, drink sport drink, and take salt. I do all of these at different times... for example over a 2hr ride:
                • 00:15 - Drink
                • 00:20 - Salt
                • 00:30 - Eat
                • 00:45 - Drink
                • 00:40 - Salt
                • 01:00 - Eat
                • 01:15 - Drink
                • 01:30 - .... you get the idea.
                I drink ever 30 minutes, salt every 20 minutes, and eat every 30 minutes. however I START each one at different times to keep them staggered throughout the ride.

                so the request is to have a place to put the start time as well as the interval... so for "drink" I would start at 00:15, with an interval of 00:30. make sense?

                Is that a feature you would entertain implementing?


                Released v1.3:
                * implementation of feature request: added the possibility to specify an alarm offset (the offset postpones the first time the alarm goes off)

                  the custom message duration is too short, any way to customize it?

                    At the moment the alarm time is hard coded to be 2 seconds.
                    I've added it to my todo list to add a setting to the next version so that you can make this alarm time longer.

                      * added configuration option to determine the duration of the alarm (defaults to 2 seconds)

                          there's currently a bug in the ios version of gcm, you can still access the settings you have to click on the thin line... (see attached image - login to forum account to view attachments)

                          alternatively you can also use Garmin Express from on your pc or mac
