You can read the following data types from Garmin Connect (Sports):
Garmin provides wearables, sport watches, and hybrids.
The wearable’s data comes from Garmin Connect (Wellness), such as your step summary, detected activities, sleep, etc., from devices such as Vivofit.
The sport watches’ data is available under Garmin Connect (Sports), which has the detailed data toanalyze your activities better.
The hybrid devices will have data from both services, and we recommend using both for the best data for your analysis.
Garmin Connect is federated and has its services both behind https://connect.garmin.com/ and https://connect.garmin.cn/. If you access your data via the https://connect.garmin.cn/ endpoint, please use the [China] denoted Garmin Connect sources; otherwise, you should use the default.
Garmin has made changes to their API program in the summer of 2016, which provides you with better security, and flexibility and as a consequence, some of our features are impacted.
Garmin (and other services) do post-processing of the data they send us. Consequently, sometimes the durations and various metrics will not match precisely because of this.
We use Garmin’s Push API, which means that we receive it shortly after your Garmin device syncs with Garmin. Some of your activities may originate in other services such as Zwift or SufferFest, which due to contractual obligations, they do not send such activities to us. If your data originates from another party, we recommend using an alternative source for that data.
For Garmin Connect, we get immediately notified whenever you sync or add a new activity on their end, and thus, the sync button usually does not find anything.
Due to the privacy agreements, this information is not available by default. You can, however, export the data via https://www.garmin.com/en-US/account/datamanagement/ and then import it into a standard Garmin Connect account where we can acquire the data from it or import it directly into FitnessSyncer via CSV.
Garmin Connect only starts collecting data from the moment you begin using FitnessSyncer. For Garmin Connect (Wellness), Pro users can request historic syncs, but this only covers the previous 30 days of data.
Note: Because of how we integrate with Garmin Connect, we do not recommend the use of filters directly on these source connections.
If this is still happening, you may need to delete tokens from Garmin Connect. To do so:
If you are still experiencing problems, please contact us.
If you use the ANT stick and have .FIT files on your hard drive, you can use the FitnessSyncer Uploader to upload that data into your Notebook.
Otherwise, you can go to Garmin Connect and download a summary CSV:
Alternatively, you can request an export of all of your Garmin data via https://www.garmin.com/en-US/account/datamanagement/ and then upload those items into FitnessSyncer.
Garmin Connect samples the sleep and can send us a couple of updates of the sleep records before it is finalized, but they are sometimes indistinguishable between the completed and incomplete sleeps. Depending on when the sync occurs, it is possible that the sleep sent was incomplete.
The work around is usually to add a filter. In the Comment field of the Sleep item, it will contain ENHANCED_FINAL, and these are the ones you wish to send over; add a filter for Comment Contains ENHANCED_FINAL.
In some cases, this filter may not work. A slower but guaranteed-to-work filter is to use the Older Than Days filter set to 1 day on your Destination Tasks.
If you need help, please contact us.
Garmin Connect (Sports) sends us the raw .FIT file, which some activities do not have calorie information. To work around this, also include a Garmin Connect (Wellness) Activity source, which will augment.
Garmin Connect (Wellness) only permits the last 30 days for historic syncs. This usually happens by default when you sign up.
For Garmin Connect (Sports), you may need to reauthenticate the connection to make it work.
