Ratings and Reviews
On the subject fitness trackers...step/ stairs
I have be the owner of Garmin bike computers and GPS trackers for many enjoyable years and now own the fantastic Fenix 5x which i love, however..... the accuracy of the step counter and in particular the floor counter can only be described ad Poor!
I have tried quite a few adjustments to correct the problem and many similar complaints and potential fixes but none work. Other Garmin fans, which i include myself as, make statements like is very difficult to pack this features in such a small package! Personally I disagree and believe something you pay £630 for should do what it says on the tin.
From a step counter, floor counting, calorie counting piece of software and watch point of view, my old Fitbit Blaze did a far superior job and Garmin have a way to go to catch up! I wouldn’t say the Fitbit was perfect but it was consistent and when walked up 10 feet it counted 1 floor every-time. With the Garmin i can walk up the same sections 3 or 4 times and it only records 1 floor when it should count 4. That would be fine if it was always doing that but it doesn’t, it’s frustratingly inconsistent. Fitbit do that part very well in watches under £100, time to study Garmin!.
I do love this watch for all its other features and the Connect software has vastly improved over the years and receives regular improvements.
Will not connect properly with guest invite
We got these scales with the intention to both be able to track our health stats easily by WiFi.
The app is quite poor because it feels like you need to work quite hard to find how to ‘invite’ another user to share your scales. After stumbling through the apps many screens of junk I finally managed to invite my wife to my Garmin set of scales.
Now, weeks later she still is not able to see any information other than basic weight. No BMI, body fat etc. Nothing.
We have reset the scales. Uninvited her and tried again. Disconnected my account and started again. At no point have we made any progress and at no point has this app made it anything other than an exercise in frustration. I wanted to like Garmin but if this app is anything to go by I don’t think I will be buying anything else from them. These scales simply do not connect properly - is it the app’s fault? Is it the scales themselves? I don’t know and now I am beyond caring - we are now reduced to writing our stats down on a piece of paper, if we can be arsed, which defeats the point of spending over £100 on a set of scales which claims that I can invite up to 15 people to share them! It can’t manage just us two. A terrible waste and another easy win for Apple and Fitbit whose products just sort of work without fuss.
I have been using Garmin devices for some time now to track my activities so it was only natural that I would use this app as it is the default for Garmin divides. At first I was not really interested and only referred to the data on the device I was using at the time. When the Strava seen came online, I though it was a better idea. Strava is a cross platform app meaning I could start to compare with friends who use devices like Fitbit. This is when I got more interested in seeing my data through an app based interface. After a while when the free premium for Strava ran out (I count see myself paying for it afterwords) I started looking into what Garmin connect offers and I’m am pretty impressed. Though it has its limitations, being its Garmin devices only. It offers pretty much the same things that Strava does all for free. It’s been reliably stable ever since I started taking note of it and it is now my primary go to app.. I think even if Strava gets rid of its premium access I’d still keep Garmin connect as my primary. Good job Garmin
