    1- To make automatic conversion from minutes+effort in stationary cycling into steps.

    2- To be able to download my data from the web dashboard

    3- Better sleep detection. Currently it starts after 4 hours! of immobility.

    Voice on app for pace set on a time or distance interval with option of pace, heart rate, time so i don't have to run strava in parallel during my runs. Also a reps feature with beeps eg 4×400m with 1.30 min recovery so you can build a training session plan

    Figure out what is wrong with the app and stop it from draining our phones batteries. In a typical day the FitBit app may use 5%, but the HealthMate app uses > 50%.

    I see that the stopwatch function made it my Steel HR sport the watch but I also see a timer function which does show up in the screen customizing but not on the watch. Also: the stopwatch does not pause when pressing button once but just goes to next screen.

    Had the watch for couple of months now and what I would love is the screen to be off during a workout and to turn on again with a press of the button. I'm sure this will also be better on the battery and you don't need to see the stats all the time. At least I don't.

    One last thing to add: when I receive a WhatsApp video call the watch will continue to vibrate even when the call is answered. Seems like a simple software fix. Thanks people at Withings, you made a great watch!

    Would it be possible if you could make the watch face replaceable? I loved my watch for 3 weeks until the watch face broke, and I haven’t been able to get hold of anyone from Withings, can you help?

    Please add a way of inputting an individual's stride length to allow for accurate distance measurements. 

    I am short with long legs, my husband tall with short legs. We match each other step for step when walking, and walk an average of 8 miles per day together. However, the vast disparity between our steps and distance measurements is getting beyond being funny any more. I run a steel HD on apple, he a steel sport on android.

    Let's be honest, a smart band has better features than yours and if you want ideas, buy and use one and you will see what's missing.

    Better sleep tracking. I understand Fitbit does a great job in this. Mine is never right. I love the look of my watch. I just cannot see anything on it. Ewally need my phone for eveything. Even the time is sometimes confusing.

    stop adding new functions as long as you don't use durable materials especially for the glass

    Option to turn off hearthrate monitoring when not in exercise mode. 

     

    I only want it when I'm exercising and get worried about health/constant technology exposure when I see the green light all the time.

    Hi,

    I would love a feature that warn me when my phone is out of range.

    I guess a simple bluetooth disconnection notification (maybe an icon with the phone going away) would do the job.

    btw, I love my steel hr sport!

    Hello,

     

    While we await the highly anticipated enhancements to our sleep tracking system which was the winner of our poll; we are happy to share a quick piece about how the watch tracks sleep stages. 

     

    The sleep stages (e.g. light and deep) are measured based on wrist movements.

    What about being able to get a notification if my heart rate is climbing and get a little buzz when it does?

    I'd love to see an 'app' on the Steel HR for triggering notifications on my device, like a configurable button. It'd be useful for picking up automations in another app

    A nap tracker, a better sleeping detection. Other sports, like fencing, and kayaking. And to make the gps tracking automatic as soon as we start walking, running and excercising, without having to start manually the session. Otherwise the watch is amazing thanks!

    Hello fellow Devs, 

    The first feature I would like to suggest is a "Custom gesture functionality"

    1: Record gesture by moving your wrist.

    2. Choose the functionality you want to activate. 

    3.  Activate any function you want anytime you want with the flick of your wrist.

    *4. Extra original functions could be: Skipping/forwarding media, Reply to messages with a voice message (when you take your phone out of your pocket and bring it to your mouth to speak), activate custom function on PC like led control or changing volume.

    I think a lot of people nowadays would rather prefer to control their media through their watch compared to having to open up a phone. If The Steel HR's motion sensiors are not equipped to handle this then custom "hotkeys" like holding for .. seconds or triple tapping would still be a worthwhile software addition.

    The Second feature I would  use almost constantly is skipping/forwarding media by double tapping or holding the button. I would use this not only while out and about, but also while I'm working on my PC so I don't have to waste screen space for spotify or youtube.
