    Tez se pridavam k prosbe pro aplikaci na Samsung gear s3, diky

  • JH

    Have you looked into doing a version for Garmin watches?

  • Heinz

    Guten Tag

    Ich suche eine kompatible Wear Watch für Wear für Locus Map. Interessieren würde mich Samsung Gear S3
    Sony Smart Watch 3
    sind diese beiden Uhren kompatibel?

    Danke für Eure Hilfe
    Gruss Heinz

    • Locus team

      Hi Heinz,
      Sony Smart Watch 3 is compatible, Samsung Gear S3 is not (different operation system).

  • Schandri Oliver

    Funktioniert die App mit der Huawei watch2?

  • Gerd B.

    Very nice. I have a Smartwatch 3. Is it possible to make the data on the Display configurable?

    Data on my watch, that I want are:

    Heartrate, act. speed, clock, time elapsed, distance

    on a second Screen

    Cadence, avg. heart rate bpm and %, avg Speed, Elevation gain

    maybe that can be a configuration Setting on Smartphone in the Profile



    • Locus team

      Hi Gerd,
      so far, it’s not possible but we plan to add the option of screen configuration in some of future versions. Stay tuned!

  • Honza

    Prosím, neplánujete to samé pro Garmin hodinky? V mých Fénixech by to Locus PRU slušelo 😉 Děkuji za tuto skvělou aplikaci.

  • John

    Please make a version for samsung gear watches!

  • Martin Graichen

    Jetzt noch für Tizen, so dass Locus auf der S3 Gear funktioniert. Das wäre ein Traum.

  • Jhon Ruiz

    Cordial Greeting, Mr Locus Maps

    I am very interested in the Wear for Locus Map application. Can you recommend me, what are the smartwatch compatible with this application? I have a Motorola G5, with Android 7.0

  • happy locus user

    It’s great that wear support is now available. Especially for fine grained orientation, the map feature does a great job in my opinion.

    After first use I have following questions/comments:
    – It would be great if you could make the map moveable (perhaps Maps-like).
    – Is it possible to cache the map tiles more aggressively on the clock? Seems the tiles are loaded via bluetooth, which takes a while.

    Thanks for the great work so far!

    Také se pridávám k prosbě pro podporu samsung Tizen!

  • Christer Nervik

    Works great !!
    Samsung S7 Edge + Sony Smartwatch 3


    – Heading course line at the clock – always point to north .. (top at the ckock)

    – Distance to point (guide on) show the the distance twice. If it’s 50m – it shown “50m 50m”

    • Locus team

      Hi Christer,
      thanks for the feedback. #1: heading course line at the clock is different from what is displayed on your phone?
      #2: we’ll have a look at it. Next time please report all issues with Wear for Locus at Thanks. Michal, Locus team

  • Christoph

    If I have a smartwatch inkluding GPS and Heartrate (Moto 360 Sport), do I need the smartphone for recording tracks?
    Is it also possible to record the heartrate according to the track?


    • Locus team

      Hi Christoph,
      Wear for Locus is not a standalone app – you always need Locus running on your phone paired with your watch. Locus, of course, can record heartrate along the track. Associate your HRM with the recording profile you use for this activity (Locus settings > track recording > recording profile > settings)

    Mir fehlen hier Informationen, auf welchen Smartwatches die App läuft, z.B. auf einer ASUS Zen Watch 2, die ist ja recht günstig?
    Ich habe bei der Asus den Hinweis gelesen, dass sie nicht mit Drittanbieter-Apps zusammen arbeitet. Trifft das auf Wear für Locus Map zu?

  • Puffolino

    Looks great!
    Could be interesting to transfer this to Garmin watches (I own the Forerunner 935) which are able to run self-written apps (using a simplified c language) and have have a big plus (some weeks battery time) compared to other watches.

  • Sehr schön!

    Gibt es auch Überlegungen Locus Apps auf Samsung Gear Devices anzubieten?

    • Locus team

      Hi, yes, there are some considerations but not in nearest future, so far.

      • TommyM

        It’s a pity, because today Samsung delivers high-end devices that I think should be part of the nearest future.
