Garmin Connect Mobile App – REVIEW #2

Garmin Connect Mobile App review. I have been hugely critical of Garmin in the past for it’s connect mobile application, but the company just keeps making improvements and this latest version is pretty good. If you’ve seen my Garmin fenix 3 review or 920XT review you know that I place a huge emphasis on how you analyze your data as opposed to just merely getting a graph. The new app I think does a better job of giving you insights and I think it will support a new wave of updates from Garmin. Also when I was looking through my Garmin Connect account I noticed a big upgrade to how things work with MyFitnessPal. Let me know what you think though.

Codidicus says:

Can you delete some of the sport profiles on the watch through the app? Example being SUP, or golf I do neither and seems like it would just take up space/battery.

John Andrade says:

#michelle boyes Thanks for the updates. Gotta get used to the new look @Andrew Alvarez

JBA Airways says:

What is the meaning of active calories on the app?

pirko101 says:

App is bad and that is understatement: cant even be launched on Windows phone 10 and it is slightly better on Android (Samsung Galaxy 7). Garmin even send me a new FR 630 watch and it still cant connect to WP and moast of the time on Android. Useless app.

John C says:

how do you get your fenix 2 watch to track your steps

Michael Hooper says:

Have you noticed losing steps at the end of the night (with the fenix3 hr) on the connect app? I work and I am active at night, usually 3pm-6am. I had a garmin vivosmart hr + and returned it. Went back to Fitbit blaze because it stays connected with the app updating as I walk. Garmin, I had to sync with app in order to transfer data to app. If I forgot to sync before midnight I lost data from steps. Gave me the amount of steps I had from last sync. I ask because the HR monitor isn’t very correct at times on the blaze so I am thinking of going with the fenix3 hr because of chest monitor capabilities. Insight would be great on experience. Or was I doing something wrong with the vivosmart+app combo ex. not setup right?

Ionel - Catalin Gheorghe says:

Hey, what phone are you using ?

Gábor Vértesi says:

I read on couple of forums that for some reason MFP is messing up the calorie section in the app. Have you experienced any glitch with this? How accurate do you find the calorie count on Vivoactive HR? I know you had a review on it but I wanted to save both of as 1 comment and 1 answer.
