As you know gliderun has its quirks, and no longer developed. Also, it doesn’t record steps for some reason on my thor pro 3g.
I’ve been talking to a developer to integrate support for our heartrate sensors similar to gliderun and heart on top.
This sports app has strava and Google fit support. It can say a lot of things and great GPS tracking. I will be testing the added feature and will let you know when it’s fully functional.
The app is “MyRunningApp GPS Running Bike” by Elia Marzia. I’ve just subscribed for a very low annual fee. Free version has everthing working, but has sometimes small banners with ads. The app can let you track GPS every second or up to once an hour. This should allow for long hikes to be tracked as well on our watch. The text to speech will give you all the details at every km/mile you’d want, from pace to current heart rate or steps and congratulate you when you break records. There’s plenty more but try it out, get the manual
