Get it together 1/5
Love my Garmin Forerunner 230 but the app is hands down the worst! Please figure out how to make a more user friendly app that actually works.
Was great, now unusable 1/5
Worked great for a few months. This most recent update crashes every time and is completely unstable. Still love my vivoactive but the garmin connect app is abysmal. Which is frustrating because it wasn't. Please fix it soon.
No connectivity 1/5
This app is nice when it works. However, the last update made it UNUSABLE. It absolutely will not display any activity data and says "network connection error" and time I try to view anything. So sad. At least give people the option of re-installing a previous version! ;(
Ok but could be better. 3/5
I just purchased the vivosmart and when I try to scroll the snapshots it shuts down completely.
iPhone 6+ connection 1/5
Just bought a Fenix 3 and I cannot connect to my iPhone 6+ via Bluetooth
Do not buy 1/5
Support is beyond terrible. Recent update caused the app to shut down. To correct, delete and re-load, over 1 year and 6 months of data were erased. Thanks Garmin! When the battery finally does I'll buy another brand....
How to change language? 3/5
How do I change the language of the app without changing the language of my iPhone?
Syncing problems 😩 1/5
STILL DOES NOT WORK ..⌚️📲
Since your new download now this doesn't work either vivoactive watch 👎🏿😩
Update please 2/5
I am unable to change the sleep time for iOS. I work shift work, would be nice to use all the designed features. Enjoying it other than this.
Crashes all the time 1/5
Crashes all the time and it doesn't pull my running activity. Hire better engineers how hard is to call an api and cache the response or store within CoreData...
Sync too slow or not working! 2/5
In prior versions the Bluetooth sync between my 920xt and the app was slow but tolerable. In this new version it's way too slow or perhaps not working at all. This morning a half hour after my workout it still had not synced. Garmin needs to build a way for a user to trigger a sync so we don't have to wonder if/when it will happen.
Cannot sync 2/5
I cannot get my vivofit to sync after the last update. It been nice to be able to sync without having issues every other time. I know it's not my phones Bluetooth.
Hate it 2/5
I really don't like that it loses its versatility when switched to an iOS coming from an HTC One M8. I thought it would be better on Apple.
Looks TERRIBLE on the iPhone 6 Plus. Fix it!! 1/5
Why even with this most recent update is the app still ONLY optimized for the iPhone 5? The iPhone 6 Plus has been out for a YEAR!!
I want to buy the Garmin Edge 25 for my bike, but I cannot stand how distorted everything looks on my phone with this app. Why would a customer buy a $200 product, if the app that it interfaces with is outdated?!?
Terrible Connecting/Syncing Issues. 1/5
I have the VivoActive watch and I really like it, however the connection issues between the App and the Device are enough to make me want to return both. The whole purpose of having the App is to clearly see your progress and for self-motivation. My watch has been disconnected from my phone for close to 3 days now and I cannot find any way to make it connect. It’s as if the App gave up. Garmin needs to sort out these connections issues, until then it’s going back.
Works great 5/5
Syncs right up with my vivosmart hr and the app is real easy to navigate through. I feel that the garmin devices are better than Fitbit and same with the apps. Would recommend to anyone over Fitbit
Not syncing with my Forerunner 25 2/5
Syncing was never an issue until this last update. Now it's not syncing my steps. And is saying My Fitness Pal isn't connected.
Decent app 4/5
I have a vivofit 2, and apart from the occasional need to repair the device after Bluetooth is turned off, it does a good job of providing statistics.
New update is terrible 1/5
The old version did not look as snazzy as the new one, but it worked perfectly...this new update will not connect with my watch at all and both are updated. Very disappointing!
App is horrible 1/5
It had a terrible time syncing and is not user friendly.
The Watch is great but would be awesome if it worked with the phone!
Esau to understand 5/5
I like the app. I don't have any real issues with it.
A wasted 8 months 1/5
I purchased the VivioFit 2 to use in conjunction with My Fitness Pal in an attempt to control some health issues. Everything was great. The apps worked, I could see my sleep patterns, walking patterns, etc, and put them in context across several months. Now, nothing. I have lost all that data, my band barely syncs, it struggles with My Fitness Pal, and has all the same issues mentioned in other reviews. I feel like I have wasted both time and money. I am disappointed with the update and annoyed at losing so much information.
So frustrated!!! 2/5
I love my vivosmart HR however this app has left me feeling very frustrated! Initially the app had no syncing problems. I have uninstalled/reinstalled more times than I care to mention and still won't sync. Please FIX!!!
Love watch hate hate hate this app please fix it! 2/5
Please fix this app! I was told by garmin rep it would work with my 4s-doesn't even download....so I use it on my iPad and it literally does not track my sleep or download my activities I save RIGHT ON THE WATCH. Big issue for me as I'm a competitive athlete and got the watch to review my heart rate during long runs. Just fix it so we can all stop whining and promote your product please.
Won't synch despite several forced attempts. Crashes. Please fix it! Love the watch, like the app (when it works) but it's a constant struggle.
This app makes me wish I got a Fitbit. If only the app could be as good as my watch.
This app is worthless. Day one, it worked great. Synced up easily and connected with myfitnesspal without a problem. Day two, stopped updating with myfitnesspal and kept telling me to reconnect. But when I looked in my settings it showed that it was still connected? Uninstalled and reinstalled, still didn't sync. Now on to day 6 after purchasing my vívofit 2, I have to manually sync it or it won't update. It did however, start updating steps in Apple health? WTH.
Should've gone with the Fitbit instead!
As of lately this app is no longer syncing with MyFitnessPal. It's hard to get them to work together, if they're not syncing
Doesn't work most of the time. Go back to previous version.
Terrible interface app 2/5
Lost data from my vivoactive very difficult to connect- please add a manual connect button on app so I can upload the data after I exercise and go to bed!!!!
Garmin Connect 4/5
By Dingo Altair
I wish it was a little bit more intuitive, but it gets the job done. Every one of my friends that has a Fitbit is jealous that my garmin gets text messages :)
From great to awful 1/5
By Painful to play
I haven't been able to sync my info in over a week due to Garmin's various problems (including their terrible "update" that is difficult to read/understand). Such a shame!!!!
Good tracker TERRIBLE App! 1/5
This app really is the worst. I can't scroll through two of my pages without it crashing. I bought the Garmin Vivofit HR to track my steps and heart rate instead of the Fitbit and I can not stand the app. It makes me want to return the tracker. Even when the app doesn't crash it is so hard to navigate, I can't find any friends to do challenges with, it is just all so confusing. Again I like the tracker but hate the app.
Waste of good hardware 1/5
By Obvious apathy
What a shame that after all the work Garmin did to develop the watch, they can't put any effort at all into the software that runs it. And with this update they've gone from bad to worse. With all the incredible competitors on the market, you guys can't even make a functioning alarm? Unbelievable.
If I could give no stars I would. 1/5
Wow. Every update makes it worse.
HOW TO FIX ERROR 2/5
To fix the Network Connection Error, you must Sign Out and sign back in again. They get 1 bonus star for allowing decimal points in the Weight section finally.
VIVOACTIVE WONT SYNC 1/5
Please fix ASAP. the vivoactive will not sync with device.
Love my Forerunner 220, but HATE this app! 1/5
By H in WV
I have to manually sync my watch with the app after every activity & it still fails to sync about half the time. My watch was the best purchase ever, but having to use it in conjunction with this app is awful. Come on, Garmin--seriously?!
Bye Bye Garmin!!!! 1/5
My wife and I have had it with Garmin devices.....The features and updates never work as promised and seem to get worse....Either this App is Foo-barred...or the Firmware updates to the device is foo-barred....Just Ebay'd 2 Garmin Edge 510's and a Garmin Fenix 3.....Replaced with 2 Lezyne Power GPS's and a Suunto watch for my wife.....Later Garmin!!!!!
Syncs, but any click yields an error.
Can we just go back to the old UI?
Not sure how this has fern failing for two weeks and still no fix!
Simple fix for MAJOR troubles 5/5
I was have MAJOR troubles with this app after the latest update on my iPhone 6.
This morning I signed out and signed back into Garmin Connect. This resolved ALL of my issues.
To sign out go to at the bottom right then select .
Great device, terrible software but reinstalling the app is the key 3/5
The vivofit2 is exactly what I wanted, a waterproof watch and tracker with excellent battery life. But the app is, from time to time, nearly useless. "Connection errors" after the last upgrade lasted for three days until I deleted the app and reinstalled. There are fancy charts but limited information when you can get through on the mobile app. Last month when the app stopped recording sleep the support-- from a real human being on the phone-- was very helpful, but the software should just work.
Latest update caused new bugs 3/5
Love the fitness tracker, hoping Garmin can get the app up to par quickly.
-More intuitive interface, i.e. Love the idea of the weekly intensity goal. The ability for the device to log it or allow manual entry not so good.
Great Hardware, Terrible Software 2/5
Love the Forerunner 225 (although I do wish it had a straight up stopwatch). The app has never worked well for me, though. Buggy to the core. Half the time it fails to sync right away, and when it does, I see a "network connection error" when attempting to drill down into the data (sleep, steps, basically anything other than the home screen). The online site is much better, but this app is far from a mirror of the site. It's like the website and app have been designed by competing siblings who hate each other and don't care about the people using the actual software.
Sync? What sync? 1/5
This app needs some serious work. You can't sync your watch, it doesn't matter what you do, the app has a mind of its own and syncs when it wants. Don't waste your money on this watch.
So sad... 1/5
By Shake it, Turkey!
What happened? The upgrade was a horrible downgrade. I can't even use this app anymore. It hasn't tracked my sleep, steps, heart rate, or activities for over a week. This is just sad...
Clumsy design and its primary function (uploading workout data from the device) is flakey at best, but usually just doesn't work.
On the design, seriously, just make your buttons visible at least? The invisible back button is just dumb. Amateur effort overall.
I constantly get a "network error" after I sync. What is the point of the app if it doesn't work?
Auto Upload Not Acceptable 2/5
I can't believe Garmin has not taken notice of the various forums to address the fact that the auto sync on its Garmin Connect app fails. It has been 3 days since I've been able to upload data despite continuous refresh and turning bluetooth off/on. Seriously guys...get it together. There are products at half the price with a more robust interface.
Worst "update" ever! It's a "downgrade"! 1/5
This is the worst "update" ever! It's a "downgrade"! The previous version allowed me to see everything on on page, including the tracking of my daily weight! Now, I have to search through the links to even FIND my weight.....and, now, it doesn't allow me to enter the exact weight!
(i.e. Instead of 204.5 lbs., it makes me choose between 204, or 205.)
I want my PREVIOUS version back!!!
If not, I'll find a DIFFERENT app; but, I will NOT continue using this "downgraded" version! 😡
