Garmin Connect™ Mobile
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Meeting goals made easier:
The newest version of Garmin Connect Mobile is designed to help you to focus even more clearly on your fitness and healthy living goals. All the data you rely on is easy to find and access on the app. Plus, you can also upload data from your compatible fitness watch or device to share via our online network, so you can compare times or compete with friends on weekly step or running challenges. You can even use the app’s Bluetooth® connectivity links (with a compatible smartphone) to receive current weather conditions, forecasts, voice call/text message notifications, and more – right on your Garmin fitness device.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 3.13.2
Minor bug fixes and stability updates.
Does the job
I have a vivofit hr and an old forerunner 305. Both of these can work with this app. I like that. I have been using app for over 7 months now on iPhone SE and I am very pleased with it. There are minor things I dislike which are that 1) the calendar often is not updated at a glance 2) occasionally I have to reset the Bluetooth to sync again. 3) because of my vivofit hr my activities aren't really reflected correctly. It is too much work manually resetting them ( or not even possible) For instance I do a lot of Zumba and indoor cycling but can only mark these as " cardio workout". The smart IQ keeps thinking that Zumba is "swimming"and automatically adding to my calendar.
BUT- The awesome stuff is that I have a log of all my calories burned and step and heart rate data for months. Sleep info too. It is really cool. I also like the weekly step challenges.
You have option to use my fitness pal for diet too. All in all this app does the job and I look at it daily. I am pleased with it and recommend it if you have a Garmin fitness tracker.
I'm giving this app 4 stars, because it's really a great app. I have been using this since Jan 10,2016 and never had a problem tracking my steps and runs. Now all the sudden everything is off. My December calendar is in Nov. etc... unless you click on 12 mths activity then December disappears. Now my steps and sleep are missing in my calendar. It's gotten all out of whack. Tried to fix it by signing out and back in but still no fix. I am faithfully using my app this year to follow my workouts and I'm really disappointed that it has messed up right here at the end of 2016. I've tried looking up fixes but can't find anything. Other than this mess up, which only happened after November, this has been my motivation app. Along with my vivoactive watch! Please Garmin fix this. It's really annoying!
Needs better sync trigger, weight input
The sync is much better for my Vivoactive. It takes place within ten seconds after opening the app. Also, the new graphs are superb!
There are still too many key presses needed for the weight input. Garmin should consider using some kind of dial/slider for quick updating. The text on this screen should be larger.
When opening the app, the sync with my vivoactive does not immediately occur. I believe the trick might be leaving the app and then returning, upon which pulling down on the home screen triggers a sync. However, a simple button should be available to manually sync my watch.
The weight data screen needs a more fast/convenient input method as opposed to the current small field. I think Garmin relies on a different app (myfitnesspal?) for that data, which is completely unecessary!
It seems that deleting activities can only be done online on the desktop website. Sometimes an activity can be initiated by mistake, so there should be an easy way to delete.
Otherwise, everything else about the app is great! I like the visual appeal of the data; it makes you want to run!
