New Fasting Feature!

Hi Beta Testers!

We sent you an email indicating we had a new fasting feature almost ready for you to test. Well.... Its here! Update your app to access the fasting feature! It is still a work in progress and there are a couple of existing bugs we are aware of and working on a fix for:
-Deleting one fast in a series edits whole series
-Finishing a fast early edits series

Other than that, please let us know if you find any bugs and if you have any suggestions for anything to make it more usable for you!

Thanks again for any and all feedback! We love you guys!

  • Tested and working. I was able to setup a 42 hour fast. I like that it displays on the Diary and I can move from fasting to targets just by dragging the display. Only suggestion, would be to see the start and finish date and time on the display. Also, display on the web version.

    Additional suggestion: How about an onscreen notification when fast is finished or you are half way through. Example: "Congratulations, you are halfway through your fast!" or "Wow! you have completed a 42 hour fast" I am adding this to requests. :}

  • Tested the fasting feature and it seems to work if you simply create a fast and start it then and there without modifying anything other than the title and fast length.

    However, once I edit the start time (for example: if I started a fast earlier in the day, but forgot to start at that moment in Cronometer) the fasting time window and length of the fast are not accurate.

  • It would be great to get a notification when you complete. I ended up adding this watch face to help me. I sometimes forget since I still have to prepare food for my family.

    having reminders pop up at intervals would be great.

    having the ability to extend the fast would be nice.


  • Just a heads-up, you can also see the fasting stuff on the web version by using beta.cronometer.com instead of cronometer.com

  • On iOS in the top Currently Fasting window, I’d like to see start and end times as well as duration and elapsed time.

    Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

  • On iOS the top Currently Fasting window continues to display when I navigate days. If I go into next week, I would expect that Currently Fasting would not be counting down - should show that I haven’t yet started the fast on that day . In other words, the top windows are day-specific for all other features, but Currently Fasting is global.

    Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

    A little more detail on the issue I mentioned earlier (still present in the just-released iOS app, build 3.3.0 (512)):

    Steps to reproduce the issue I'm seeing:

    1. Go to settings and choose Fasting
    2. Create "New Fast"
    3. Name the fast and change the duration from 16 to 14 hours (notice that as soon as you click into the name or duration field the start time and end time disappear)
    4. Tap "start time" and adjust the start time to some time earlier in the day and click "Add fast"

    In doing this, I'm seeing the fasting date has jumped to tomorrow and the time is incorrect. Going in and editing the fast (changing the date back to today and attempting to adjust the start time) results in still-not-correct start and end times/dates.

  • A very minor issue that I don't think warrant a new thread:

    On the web app, under the Repeat Fast dropdown, "No Recurrence" has a typo as "No Recurrance".

  • We just noticed that one too @Vickie (So embarrassing :s ) We are actually going to update it to use the word Repeating in order to keep it more consistent!

  • Are there plans for post fast recording/editing and charts?

    Thanks!

  • @efrose yes! You should be able to access this now! You can edit fasts on the settings tab, and you can add a fasting overlay on your charts by going to the chart settings

  • Must have missed that will go look again.

  • It's good to know you missed it though, as this means it may not be discoverable for other users, and potentially is something we should look into changing. Did anyone else here have trouble finding the charts overlay and the fasting section in settings?

  • Hi all,
    There are a few features my current fasting app, Fasti, has that I would love to see in Cronometer. First - notifications of when to start and end the fast. Second - it starts counting my fasting interval when I tell it to, and then tells me when I've met my goal. I'm not always eating on the same schedule, so having a fixed interval doesn't work well for me. It's nice to be able to have it move along with me. If it's just going to say "fast from X time to Y", then I could replicate that with a regular alarm. And that would have notifications!

  • Thanks for the feedback @Cuttlebranch , yes I think notifications would certainly enhance the experience! I will pass this along to the team. Might not make the cut for the first public release but certainly something we would like to see in future iterations.

  • We are hoping to get fasting out to the public soon! Anyone have any more thoughts since the latest build before we get it out there? (There are a couple of known outstanding bugs that we are still in the process of cleaning up)
