  • Slow data

    Trying to keep eye on speed but this app is not reliable for continual speed data. Sometime there but most of time get 0 for speed.

    I use the app for sailing, kayaking and pedal-boating. It has great functions and a great activity log with map. I have contacted the author for suggestions and he was very helpful with implementing improvements.
  • Countdown timer

    I’m disappointed the countdown timer requires a subscription. As a paddle boarder I take a lot of comfort being able to stow my phone before I get in the water. A countdown timer lets me do this and still accurately track a paddle.
  • Doesn’t provide GPS data to Apple Workouts

    I’ve used this app and Paddle Logger. While I find that Waterspeed is much more configurable, it’s annoying and highly limiting that it fails to include the GPS data when it syncs up its data to Apple’s workout app. I use another app called Health Fit to sync all types of my workouts out to Strava or other sources and while Paddle Logger worked flawless providing the GPS to Apple Workouts which Health Fit can grab, Waterspeed doesn’t.
  • Great app with room for improvement

    Edit: Looks like the map bug was fixed in a recent update, so this is no longer an issue! Previous review below. I use Waterspeed for recording sailing, and it’s so great to be able to start/stop recording from my watch and are course and speed over ground at a glance. I usually export a photo of the map using the Share feature to keep a log of my sails. However, if I go for longer distances, like a 30 nm sail from Marina Del Rey, CA to Catalina, the map at some point fails to zoom out enough to see the trip. I have a big trip planned for the British Virgin Islands soon, and I’d love to use Waterspeed to log it but can’t unless they fix that. I also used to log sailing as a “workout,” but the app somehow caused an inflation in my active calories (Apple’s tracking score) that was way out of line with the actual activity, so I turned that part off. Kinda wish I could use it, but it’s inaccuracy means I can’t. This is a great app for watersports-like activity, especially for its Apple Watch integration, but it needs a little more work on long-distance travel.
  • Keeps good track for your trips

    Currently using for both SUP and Kitesurfing. Inexpensive alternative to WOO and PIQ.
