Connect IQ: Beer Tracker Plus

Have you ever craved an ice-cold beer after a long run or hike, but don’t want to scrap all that hard work you just put in? The Connect IQ store has the perfect app for those of you who love to sip on some suds after a long workout. Introducing the Beer Tracker Plus, a custom data field that tracks how much beer you’ve earned after your workout.

With this app you can physically watch the glass fill up as you track the number of beers you’ve earned during your workout. Rather than just seeing a number, you can feel the anticipation of a cold one rise along with the fill level of the mug. You can select from three beer styles – Amber/Lager, Red Ale, or Stout/Porter, and then choose white or black for the background. The Number of calories per beer can be configured, but it defaults each to 150 calories.


To use Connect IQ data fields, you’ll need to manually add it to one of your activity data screens because it won’t show up automatically. It varies from device to device, but it’s usually under “Edit Screens” or “data screens” and then you replace or add one of the existing fields.

The Beer Tracker Plus is compatible with a variety of Garmin devices and is absolutely free in the Connect IQ store.
