Ok I know I can be tech non savvy but I do ok, however I have downloaded Surf Tracker from the IQ store and it shows up on my list of data fields. How do I actually get it to track my waves or actually do anything, it just it's on my list and not appear on my watch???

Its been a while since I set mine up so I can't remember exactly what I did but basically you have to add the surf tracker data field to an activity.

Mine only is active when I select SUP for the activity because that is the one I added it too.

Think it is something like select settings/activities and apps/sup/sup settings/data screens/add new then select surf tracker.

You can make your own custom field and insert it there.

Hi Guys i got venu for XMas and looking to add it as well. Is there only one app on the iq store. I would like to use it for longboarding as well. It would not have any issues would it.

Found surf tracker a bit frustrating. Try wavetrackerapp (free version available), but FYI with a Garmin it's a bit convaluted:
record your surf as an activity, export gpx from garmin website (not the app), upload to WaveTrackerApp website, view session on WaveTrackerApp via app.

I use the Dawn Patrol app on an Apple Watch and it works wonders.

Here my experience on with both: medium.com/@carlescarrera/is-the-apple-watch-good-for-surfing-6f886a31216e
