What's New in Version 10.6.2
• Fixed an issue with iCloud backups under iOS 10.
• Fixed an issue with imports from RideWithGPS having bad elevation values.
• Improved contrast of our Today widget under iOS 10.
• Fixed compatibility issues under iOS 9 and 8 that could cause crashes.
If you use iCloud backup and the name of your device contains an apostrophe, for example "Morgan's iPhone", you may see two databases in More > iCloud: "Morgan%27s iPhone" and "Morgan's iPhone". If you need or want to install a database, you may install either database. The more recent one is at the top of the view and you can also check the dates. Versions 10.6 and 10.6.1 erroneously backed up your database to "Morgan%27s iPhone" but version 10.6.2 and all versions going forward will correctly backup your database to "Morgan's iPhone". You may install "Morgan%27s iPhone" or you may keep it for safekeeping, but when you no longer have use for "Morgan%27s iPhone", you may delete it. Again, version 10.6.2 and all versions going forward will correctly backup your database if it uses an apostrophe, for example "Morgan's iPhone”.
I don't like being forced to write a review
NOT AN INPUT DEVICE (Was: The world awaits WatchOS3)
WATCH OS3 REVIEW
(Scroll down for the OS2 REVIEW)
I'd hoped that the Cyclemeter techies would have tweaked the watch app to take advantage of the improved Watch OS facilities. Perhaps they did; but the Watch version of Cyclemeter is still hopeless as an input device to the iPhone version of Cyclemeter mounted as a display on your handlebars.
The problems listed below are a little less frequent but they still remain. Both the watch and the phone displays are still slow to update; in fact, for a lot of the time you're riding with the null heart rate reading of '---' showing on the phone display. It is dangerous to keep raising your hand or tapping on the watchface to wake the watch display.
The beautifully crafted watch version of Cyclemeter is pointless as an input to the bar-mounted phone display.
Don't throw away your chest strap.
PRE OS3 REVIEW
I like Cyclemeter very much, and have used it to display heart rate etc on my iPhone affixed to the handlebars. When I saw the Watch App, I was delighted- a way to get rid of my Wahoo heart-rate chest strap, (which has always given up after 4-8 months- I'm on my 5th now!), and use the Watch as an input device.
The Cyclemeter Watch app is exquisite- a lovely bit of display design. You can start and stop the display from the Watch app or the iPhone app. You can check the current heart rate and total calories when you have stopped, tapped the watch or raised it a few times, and waited a moment for the data to show up on the Watch display or, 10 to 15 seconds later, on the iPhone display.
What you can't do reliably is to observe heart rate and calories while you're moving. It simply isn't safe to keep tapping or raising the watch.
Also, because of the data transfer delay, on a switchback run you will receive elevated heart-rate readings on a downhill, showing the rate as it was going up the previous uphill, and vice-versa.
The Abvio techies are aware of all this and say they will be able to tweak their app as soon as Apple have made the adjustments required to eliminate the data transfer delay when they issue OS3.
Let's hope Abvio also provide a calibration function for the heart rate display on the Watch, as they do for the iPhone display. This matters to the users most interested in heart rate measurement: those on medicines that lower heart rate (to a max possible of 120 or so in my case) and who cycle as a way of combating heart disease. We don't really need the (admittedly very attractive) Watch display of normal heart rate ranging from 60 to 180: 45 to 130 would be more like it and increase the readability of the display.
In sum, not much point in downloading the Watch app for the moment, unless all you want is strapless input into your Health and Activity app records.
Come on Apple, let's have OS3 so that Cyclemeter can realise its potential!
