The update is good, and my garmin footpod works well.
However, I have discovered a very unfortunate UI bug. I did my run, pressed stop/pause, then went inside to change. When I was done, I synced the watch with Strava, but no new run was added, and it had disappeared from my Leikr.
I realized that I had forgotten to press the Save button on the watch. I think it would be very helpful to have the watch auto-save before uploading. In other words, If an activity is paused, but not saved, and I do a sync to strava, please SAVE the paused activity first, so it can be uploaded, instead of discarding it.
