Step 4 creating a basic kitesurf app

Finished the e-book and based on the sample apps I just created a very basic app with a title, menu and a picture. Next step is showing information from the watch like speed / height / heart rate inside the app.

The Garmin Fenix 3 HR was on sale at Amazon, so just ordered it ;-). So maybe I postpone my Garmin Fenix 5x for a while.

Step 1 choosing the wearable (platform)

Things that I find important about a wearable device in relation to kitesurfing:

  • Strong and robust
  • Waterproof including salt sea water
  • GPS tracking without mobile telephone
  • Continuous heart rate monitoring
  • Operate my GoPro
  • Measure the jumps (heights)

I think that a Garmin Fenix 5X will do the trick, so I putted it on my wishlist and will buy it when it is available.
