Beast Timer 1.80 Update

This release of Beast Timer brings lots of bug fixes and the addition of new features. Notably, Beast Timer now connects to Garmin devices, and allows you to pair the app with the watch. From the watch, you can then see information about the current exercise/set. You are also able to control Beast Timer from the watch, for example by pushing a button on the watch to advance to the next set. Check out the watch app here, on the Garmin Connect IQ app store.

You are almost certainly using this app at the gym. As is such, you can now choose an image as your gym membership card and display it easily from within the app. For those gyms that require you to use their application to display the gym card, you can also launch their app directly from within Beast Timer.

Below you will see the feature additions and bug fixes, taken mostly from the source control commit logs. Note the majority of the bug fixes are not listed here because they contain technical jargon.

[Bug Fixes]
* Fixed an issue where if all sets of an exercise were deleted, the next set added to the exercise would result in a set defaulting to active status

* Make sure we advance to the next correct set if we uncompleted a set or group above the current active group
* Spotify was trapping the onKeyUp action in BeastModeActivity, so we check for onKeyUp too now
