Long awaited and much anticipated. The day has arrived that Surfr is available to Garmin watches. Available to +35 models already, but we are working on getting it available to more watches sooner than later.
We can't run Surf.AI on your Garmin Watch. This is why we came with the second best option: Indicative jump height. A simplified Surfr. algorithm that will recognize 100% of your jumps and give you an good indication of your heights on the water.
After your session
High accuracy jumps
We can't run Surfr.AI during your session, but we CAN run Surfr.AI after your session. Your Garmin activities will automatically sync to Surfr and we will process them as quickly as we can.
Once your session has processed explore your session in all its (PRO) details on the interactive GPS map in the Surfr. app
As easy as 1-2-3
Get started in just a few steps
Step 1) Download the app
On your phone go to the Garmin Connect app, visit the Connect IQ store and search for The Surfr. app. If you can't find the app, it means that your watch is currently not compatible. Rest assured that we are working on extending compatibility!
If you want to use Indicative Jump Height during your session you need to enable this in the settings. Open the app, select Settings and enable the Indicative Jump Heights. Once enabled you will get your jump height estimation during your session for every jump you make.
For the kite geeks amongst us (ourselves included) we like to elaborate a little bit on how the Surfr. app and Garmin currently work together. Please follow along on with the picture:
It all starts on the water. During your kite session we record the sensors of the watch (accelerometer and gyroscope) 100 times per second (hertz). We also provide you with an indicative jump height. These jump heights are not the final heights but should give you a very good impression on how high you are going.
After you save your session, it will automatically synchronize with Garmin Connect. This process might take a while, especially for sessions longer than 1-2 hours. Once Garmin Connect has received your session they forward it automatically to our servers.
From there we take the data once again and we run our Surfr.AI algorithms on the collected data. This will result in your Surfr session, including your jumps and GPS tracks. As soon as we finished processing we will send you a push message and an e-mail.
After all this automatic processing you will now be able to view your session in all it's details.. Open your session and dig into the PRO details.
What do you think? Isn't it about 'time' to try it out?
