    Default Apple Watch Support

    In the previous app version, when the countdown timer alarm went off, the notification would pop up on my Apple Watch. This was really great as it allowed me to cancel the alarm without messing with my phone.

    Is it possible to get the alarm cancel option back for the Apple Watch?

    (I am guessing that this was an unintended feature, not something you planned, so I am guessing you did not even know it was gone)

    hi heath, please update to 1.16, this should be back in. I didn't realise it had disappeared until I tested it the other day, but it was working for me.

    It did not work.

    There is a high potential that it was operator error, but the time completion notification did not show on the watch. Also, did the sound change? The sound was pretty harsh in the old version of the app, but the current sound seems worse.

    I like that the app is now linked to the forum. Not sure how to copy in my workout yet, but the link is a good start.

    I fear the answer is "read the book", but why are the first two warmup sets always the same? Or am I just not lifting enough yet for the two to be different?

    i think you may have to put the app to the background for it to work on the phone. Not sure about the sound, will check it out. That sound has been problematic from day one.

    yup read the book re warmups or post a question to rip or the coaches. its designed to have 2 warmup sets just using the bar.

    I tried closing the timer, and I think putting the app into the background (not 100% on this one) and the timer did not go to the watch.

    I thought in the older version it worked with the app open.

    I agree with the other thread that more watch integration would be great.
