Garmin has a number of apps that work with their wearable technology. The Garmin Connect App is used to wirelessly connect with a fitness and wellness device.
After downloading the app, you’ll find a welcome screen. Here you can add your device (via Bluetooth) and explore Garmin products (links to the online shop).
For each day, you can add activity, calories, weight and hydration. You can view yesterday’s statistics and the last 7 days statistics. The Garmin Connect dashboard will give you more information.
The insights section allows you to compare your fitness activities against males and females of similar age groups in running, cycling, lap swimming, open water swimming, steps, floors, and sleep in hours. It provides you with real-time analysis of your patterns.
Depending on your Garmin device you’ll see extra menu items. For example, my husband uses Garmin to track his golf game, so he has features to download golf courses and install the dedicated Garmin Golf app. You’ll get a digital scorecard and more golf specific statistics.
I was a bit surprised you could add gear. When you add your shoes, you can enter data like the type, brand and model, and date of first use. You can also add similar data for your bike/s and any other sports gear that you might need to replace regularly.
Garmin Connect is an easy-to-use app and dashboard that will pair nicely with your selected wearable.
