5 Star!!! 5/5
I absolutely LOVE The Garmin Connect app!
Dive computer 5/5
By Craig 48
Best dive computer and smart watch I’ve ever used. I’m a dive shop owner and instructor that makes 200-300 dives a year. It’s performed perfectly. The compass is awesome!
Good way to track workouts 4/5
I like the various options that this app gives you. Just a matter of taking the time to use all of them
Bloated and slow. 3/5
Functional for tracking devices. Slow to startup and slow to sync.
Not sure why software is a large as Numbers and Word.
Poorly coded bloatware?
I dont know where to start 1/5
This software is simply horrible.
Love it 5/5
Garmin 830 with a speed sensor and people riding with me always depend on my readings for distance on mountain bike trails.
Won’t connect to GPSMAP 66i 1/5
I get an error every time on my phone saying I can’t connect
Current version as of 25 June will not sync calendar 1/5
By Me myce
This version will not sync the calendar to my 920xt. I reinstalled and restored the software and hardware respectively, but nothing. I can track, but can’t effectively use my training plans or workouts.
Very Useful App!!(IMHO) 5/5
I have a Forerunner 220 connected to the app and love that it automatically downloads my runs when it connects to my iPhone! I’m not an “elite” runner, so this app provides me all the info I currently need to analyze my performance!👍🏾
No bueno 2/5
Used to work great. Now it won't upload rides even when paired properly to the phone. It just doesn't work. Very frustrating.
Don’t workout at midnight. 1/5
Overall this is a really good app and if you just use it, it’s great. But if you use the apple health app as well and feed the data from this app to Apple Health; if you are getting steps before midnight you need to manually sync both Garmin and the apple app to make sure the last 15 minutes are captured. If you don’t make sure you sync both apps the last 15 minutes before midnight do not carry over to the apple health app steps totals. It’s happened to me repeatedly. Please fix this.
Wish I could give it zero stars 1/5
This app has been useless and buggy for ages. Currently the latest version of the app doesn’t always recognize my device when it’s connected by Bluetooth, even when iOS says it’s connected. Restarting the app doesn’t nothing.
On top of that, I was in the middle of activity and the activity just vanished from my device. I didn’t end the activity. The activity just disappeared right in the middle of it.
Is Garmin stealing my personal data? I thought I was simply syncing my devices through Bluetooth, not the cloud. Plus I lose activities because the wifi drops, and then the sync never occurs. The activity is lost, even when I tried to sync later.
I have to say I never was big on this watch thing! And then I got the Garmin and I love it. I am lost without it. Very stable with reporting issues and resolved all problems quickly.
Brand New User 4/5
I am slowly learning how to use the app and watch (Vivosport 3). So far, the more I learn, the better I like it. I like being able to select only the widgets and Activity Page displays I want to see. Best of all is being on GPS; my old pedometer wasn’t registering all my steps and setting my step length in inches was shorting me 0.2 mile per mile! Go Garmin.
Great App! 5/5
I love the app!
Great experience 5/5
By Fan from Brazil
I have been a ling time and very satisfied user. I have had a couple of issues both with the app and the watch and in every single occasion either the trouble shooting or the call center have helped me solve my problems! Great product and amazing stats to follow my progress.
It was better before 1/5
Please include an option to turn off the connect/disconnect notification on the watch. My fénix 5 buzzes every time I raise my hands over my head. It buzzes every time my dog sits on my lap when my phone is in my pocket. It’s constantly buzzing all day for connect/disconnect. It’s not important to know if the watch is connected to the phone, the watch works independently from the phone.
Trying to set it up. 404 page not found. Guess the app is useless
Really profoundly terrible 1/5
Have had garmin computers for many years as there’s no good alternatives. This app is a disaster and gets worse with each release. Now my edge 820 won’t sync at all anymore it’s just asks me to set it up but then freezes. App keeps getting larger and larger but performs worse. Also drains your phone battery even when it’s explicitly closed.
Edge 820 Stopped pairing with phone 1/5
Edge is saying garmin connect v4.5 is needed and latest available version of app is 4.19x and my app is up to date.
Workouts not showing in calendar 3/5
Workouts not showing in calendar on my Fenix 3 hr
Golf scorecards disappeared 3/5
I have both the connect app and the golf app, but I really get frustrated when the update removes functionality but it’s not stated as one of the things that happens with the update. I recently synced my approach x40 watch and wanted to look at my scorecard and shots only to have ALL of my scorecards from the last 2 years disappear. The connect app has been better than the golf app, less buggy and had better statistics so I preferred it to the golf app. I applaud Garmin for trying to create a separate app for golf (since they have multiple golf watches), but create an app that does the same things you already had programmed into the connect app then improve on that for the golf specific app. Feels like taking a step back.
Started out great, keeps going down hill 3/5
By BOOOO WY THE CRASHS
I love Garmin and I have always loved the Garmin app. But it seems lately that every update makes the app less useful and less user friendly.
I have not been able to transfer my training plan to my watch since April. The option does not even exist anymore in the app, and when I try to do it online, it tells me that my plan will be downloaded the next time I sync to my app. NOT TRUE. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, I have done a hard reset to my watch. I don’t know what to do. The training runs that were already loaded disappeared from my watch after syncing in April never to return again.
There are new features being added to the app, which are fine, but I would like to be able to use my watch for what it was intended which is to help me train better. If I wanted an Smart Watch, I’d get one. I want a watch and app that will help me train better.
I’ve also never been able to use live track, which is a bummer.
Can’t edit swims anymore 👎🏼 3/5
Overall, I like the app. Something has happened recently, though, so now I can’t edit my pool swims. I used to be able fix sessions when laps were missed. Now, however, the changes aren’t saved & the time and pace do not get recalculated. Very frustrating...
Doesn’t connect to my phone, can’t see activities...
Another update, another broken app 1/5
App works well, then Garmin sends an update and it stops working. C’mon folks... you’re supposed to know what you’re doing. Fix it.
My rating of the app 4/5
It's been very helpful, but when I need to connect the watch again to the app, it doesn't want to sync with the watch
It’s perfect 5/5
By people person dude woman
You should only use if you are interested in seeing how far or how hard you’ve worked
garmin know best 5/5
I own a descent mk1. Best smart watch you’ll ever buy. Incredible dive computer and all around fitness watch. Love this thing. Can’t think of anything I would like Garmin to improve it. The iphone app rocks too!
App is slow and buggy 3/5
I have an iPhone 6plus and Garmin Edge 820. Both have been working seamlessly together until the last 2 app updates. Now the app opens super slow and live track fails to work every ride now. Hope this gets fixed soon. I’m a big fan of the brand and devices, I’d hate to have to switch to Wahoo.....
Please fix this!!! 2/5
I have been a huge fan of this app for years now. I have always had an Android phone and now have an iPhone. The app for the iPhone I cannot find the notification filter like on the android app. Android you can choose specific apps that can send through notifications. I’m at the point where I’m so annoyed with my email coming to the watch that I cannot turn off and trust me I’ve tried... if this doesn’t get fixed I will stop using these watches, and I’m currently on my 4th one. I loved this one so much before this. I am begging you please fix it
Garmin Connect 5/5
I’ve only seen a few issues but they were resolve through updates. It has a nice layout and is easy to navigate.
Buggy app, unresponsive developers, but best out there 2/5
The app is constantly buggy. Feedback to developers goes unanswered with problems never resolved. But the Garmin devices are still pretty great - but they are ridiculously expensive.
Forerunner 245 Music 4/5
I wish the maps and graphs were more interactive (i.e. you could click them and get more minute by minute results.) Everything else is so great though.
Review Activity 4/5
By Kansian Cyclist
When I tried to view a recent activity I cannot view it. I am using an iPhone and everything is up to date. Garmin, you guys are studs. Can you please fix this? Thank you.
Good so far for diving 4/5
It is a little confusing as to which settings can only be done in the app (for instance watch faces), and the surface interval app could be much simpler (showing a table of depth/time for your off-gassing level instead of making you pick an interval or depth and then showing you the max time or depth after a couple clicks), but the ease of use and automatic dive recording and uploading is really good. Switching dive computers is always frustrating, but the basic screen shows me everything I need to know, and the display is easy to read even though I'm far sighted. Good product, and I hope I can help improve it.
I own 5 Garmin devices. The devices are fine stand-alone. They are horrible in terms of functionality and ability to connect to sensors and to IPhones. Customer service is horrible. I’m desperately looking for an alternative. Wahoo I understand has a good product. I would caution everyone to stay away from Garmin’s products. They’re buggy, unreliable, frustrating and again—the company doesn’t care. They’re off making a fortune doing other stuff.
Great until lately 1/5
Been a great app until a couple weeks ago. Just wondering if your network will ever be connected again? Change to 5 stars when that happens, now I’ll go with ONE!!!!!
What happened to this app? 1/5
By Ed in WA
This app used to work very well but since the beginning of May 2019 this app has become a piece of JUNK!!! Can’t list all of the issues and support is a joke. What was the point of an update that kills the app? Garmin are you listening?
Still not working 1/5
My watch - forerunner 245 worked perfectly until the last two updates. Before I couldn’t connect or sync with Spotify. Now with the latest update I can’t connect to my phone. My watch shows as Bluetooth connected when it isn’t on. And when I do connect it isn’t really connected. Making my phone useless and unable to sync. I have to restart my watch for it to show disconnected until at some point in the day it falsely shows again. Please roll back the previous two updates. I was hopeful with the recent update and it made it worse. At least I found a work around and painfully was able to connect to Spotify
Really disappointed me with the training status update. Also, why are there still step challenges from the new year?
Since update... 2/5
Since update watch isn’t syncing steps, intensity minutes accurately. When I click on my day it shows the right numbers, but my overall totals in the overview are incorrect which reflects incorrect numbers in the challenges. I’ve never had this issue before the update. Please fix!!
Can’t go in watch face settings in app. 3/5
App just stops working sometimes(freezes up)
Still no native support for iPad 1/5
I know most people sync to their phones, but I’d still like to see the app fit my iPad screen well
Not functional 2/5
When I first started using the app - it seemed great. But as I started adding my activities and calories burned - I saw that my calorie burn is not showing up in my totals for the day. When I talked to tech support - they said I have to hit a certain threshold for them to be added. Uh what?! For what possible reason?! And why can’t I change this so called thresh hold.
I also have issues with my brand new garmin instinct staying connected to ANY new heart rate strap. Very disappointed I bought a garmin :( I miss my polar.
No longer uploads with recent update 1/5
Breaks auto upload on Edge 520. Very annoying.
Brilliant data 4/5
I have owned the Fenix 2, Apple Watch 4th generation and now the Fenix 5x plus. I am outside and hike, climb, CrossFit and as a service member I always want to have a single device to do as much as possible. The fenix2 was a great device and served me for years. I tried to convert to the apple product and was happy with the simplicity but it lacked anything other than basic fitness functions and well the crystal broke during a hike. Not made for my lifestyle more for my kids. Now the update to the Fenix 5x and the updated connect app are amazing. Tracking my heart rate and every piece of metadata I need. I would give it 5 stars if there was an option for either high intensity functional training or CrossFit style workouts. I have to use cardio and it is clumsy to build workouts in. I really love the watch and application.
App freezes up 1/5
In the last few days the app freezes up when I open it. Sometimes it opens to a map view and freezes up. Other times I get the running man and it freezes up.
Data on watch not uploading 3/5
My activity data does not upload to Garmin Connect, sometimes. It’s disappointing because this information is tracked by Go365. It is really sad when I do a forty five minute sprint and lose lots of points for that activity.
It’s a great app when it works, though. It helps to keep me on track with my fitness goals.
