This is an interesting thread. I hope this reply isn't too off topic, but I think it will help me to decide if I want to go this route with TicWatch.

I have been using a Microsoft Band since it was first released and have burned through three Band 1 and four Band 2s. The "Killer App" for me on that platform was the circuit training app called Guided Workouts. With that app I could:

  1. Choose a crossfit style workout or create my own in the designer interface.
  2. I could specify the activity, duration, reps, and sets. (For example, 5 sets of 5 reps Push Press or AMRAP Pullups 5 minutes.)
  3. On my watch, I could start the workout and it would tell me:
    1. Warmup with countdown timer
    2. Show activity and number of reps
    3. When you complete the activity you tap and it shows you the next activity in the plan.
    4. If it's a timed activity haptic notification tells you to move to the next activity
    5. Running activities (distance) engaged the GPS and counted down the remaining distance for you.

After a workout, you could review the amount of time spent in each activity, heart rate, steps, distance, etc. You can share the workout on social media, etc.

Is there anything like this for TicWatch? It was an amazing app. The very best part of the Microsoft Band. If they had not discontinued the device I would still be using it.
