Hi,

are you planning to add some more activities to Runner 3? It would be great if there could be x-county skiing for example.

Thanks.

V.

    Skiing activities were included with the Adventurer, but will not be coming to the Spark series, as they were exclusive selling points of the Adventurer. They are not adding any more sports modes, that is what they added Freestyle and Gym modes for. Freestyle is for any GPS enabled non-core activities and Gym for non-GPS enabled activities. If they start adding sports modes then you may want cross country and I may want football and someone else may want paddle sports, this is why then went with the generic Freestyle. The existing sports also tie into the lifetime totals on MySports. If they add more sports modes they would also need to redesign all of MySports to capture them. You should try using Freestyle it gets you distance based on GPS and calories based on HR so it will be the most accurate (cycling and running use METs for calories and ignore HR).

    The final and most important factor is that TT has left the wearables industry and is no longer producing new devices, so I would not expect much beyond bug fixes go forward as they devices are now legacy products. They will likely support what they have but not add anything new. Essentially the devices are what they are at this point and we are going to have to live with them as the are.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
