Why use Youtube when you can use way more effort to replicate the functionality youself? Here’s how to create an adaptive video.read more
For some reason, Google decided it was a good idea to replace the feature in Google Fit on WearOS watches that detects which lift and how many sets/reps you’re doing with a glorified stopwatch. Here’s how to get the old version back:
adb connectto your watch
adb uninstall com.google.android.apps.fitness. This erases your data, but it should still be there stored on the cloud under your Google account so NBD. Unfortunately Android 7+ doesn’t let you downgrade non-debuggable apps while keeping data due to security risks.
adb install com.google.android.apps.fitness_2.44.14-230-2024414230_minAPI25(nodpi)_apkmirror.com.apk
I would recommend disabling debugging after because sometimes my watch stays connected to wifi for no reason and drains battery when it’s on.
Hope that helps. Make sure to ask Google to bring this feature back (instructions here). Now if only I lived in a state where people at the gym can actually care there’s a global pandemic going on…
Easily the coolest and also most technical hike I’ve done. It’s the one on the Coors light can! Plus, the more near death experiences you can squeeze into one hike, the more rewarding it is at the end (disclaimer: please don’t see this as inspiration and get yourself killed). We wanted to send one final 14er on our last weekend in Colorado and this seemed like the one to do it. Winds and temperature weren’t ideal compared to the weeks before, but there was a storm arriving the next day so it was pretty much the only possible day to do it. We also got the whole hike to ourselves, didn’t see a single other person for almost 24 hours. Now that’s social distancing :)
