Garmin Connect


Now that we are in the middle of a global pandemic, it is very important to keep our immune system strong and to keep our health in good shape. To do so, we should not miss our daily exercise routine and establish a good and healthy diet. While most gyms are not yet completely operational in observance with the COVID-19 outbreak, the absence of our fitness coaches will make it hard to monitor our progress. Luckily, we now have smart devices to help us not just to track our progress but also help us reach our fitness goals. Garmin, for instance, has a great line of products designed for running, cycling, and fitness tracking. If you happen to own any of their brilliant smartwatches, you will be required to install their Garmin Connect app to get full control of your devices.

Garmin ConnectHow does Garmin Connect app work?

Using the Garmin Connect app for the first time is not complicated at all. It works the same way with other fitness app and as long as the devices are properly configured, you can manage everything from your smartphone in just a few quick taps. Simply download the Garmin Connect app wither from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to start. Once downloaded, you will be asked to pair the app with any of your existing Garmin devices. You can browse the device, manually add the device, or scan for devices.

Once you’ve paired it up with a compatible Garmin watch, it prompts you to the home screen that gives you access to all the tools you can use to track your health and to achieve your respective fitness goals. The main screen or aptly referred to as the My Day Screen features all the latest activities you did within the day including the Steps count and the Sleep time. It also features a Calorie intake you made within the day and the remaining calories you need to reach your daily goal. The calorie counter, however, works only if you integrate the Garmin Connect with other fitness apps like FitnessPal. Garmin Connect also lists down all the activities you can do such as running, cycling, swimming, and more.
