App functionalities

The Cowboy watch app allows you to:

  • lock and unlock your bike more easily with your watch

  • control your bike settings (lights, motor assistance, …) with your watch

  • monitor your heart rate while riding

  • retrieve your heart rate data on your trips history

This app is a companion app that uses your smartphone to connect with your bike. So keep your phone with you at all times when riding.

Which watches are supported?

All watches running Wear OS 3 or later are supported. Wear OS is a version of Google's Android operating system designed for smartwatches. It’s being used in many watches like the Samsung Galaxy Watch (version 4 or later), the Google Pixel Watch, the Fossil Gen 6, and more.

How to install the app on your watch

  1. Make sure the app on your smartphone is up-to-date. You must run the app 4.2 or later.

  2. Open the watch Play Store, and install the Cowboy app.

How are the heart rate zones calculated

The effort zones are defined as follows:

  • Zone 1: < 60% * max heart rate

  • Zone 2: 60%-70% * max heart rate

  • Zone 3: 70%-80% * max heart rate

  • Zone 4: 80-90% * max heart rate

  • Zone 5: >90% * max heart rate

Your max heart rate is estimated based on your age and gender.

Missing heart rate data

  • It is normal to experience a slight delay before your heart rate appears on your ride dashboard. We also have no control over how frequently your heart rate data updates.

  • If you are certain that your heart rate was displayed during your ride but it does not appear in your ride history, please contact our support team through our in-app chat.
