Dawn patrol has a new update, and once you've installed it you need to reboot the watch. They are aware of the problem. they think they have it fixed, but my guess is we're probably an update or two away from it being all good again. That's just how bugs go.

I'm having a painful empathy moment for them. I toasted two fairly expensive absolute rotary encoders today with a stupid software error. I sat there and watched them go unstable, and then stop working. Tested the fucking things and they are toast. Then I looked at my code and saw the little fuckup that killed them. Eighty bucks for two lines of code. FUCK! Sometimes technology is just depressing.

I am now going CRAZY not having Dawn Patrol on the iPhone.

I have it on the iWatch, BUT, the home screen is frozon on the iPhone.  I am waiting for a software upgrade before I just un-install and re-install and potentially lose all my sessions. 

For now I just take snapshots from the Watch (Push the Dial and Button simultaneously). 

I was watching a video of JB in Australia and he turned me on to another App:  "Waterspeed"

https://www.waterspeedapp.com/

This shows your tracks and speed, much like Strava, BUT has the option to download GPX data.  This could be great salvation as a result of losing functionality from my Dawn Patrol App:

Here is what a screen shot from Dawn Patrol on the iWatch looks like.  I snap this at the end of each session just to keep a record.
