Training Readiness keeps disappearing from My Day 4/5
And they could really stand to update their sleep teaching algorithm. Of course, it might help if they allowed for automatic switching of right or left wrist during sleep. (I guess I’m the only one but I don’t understand why none of the companies offer this feature. If I wear my wearable 24/7 on the same wrist, it’s going to get irritated. Switching to the opposite wrist during sleep prevents this.) Otherwise good.
Another update another set of bugs 2/5
By Wren Sinclair
Cmon garmin.....every run I get "new record mile" notifications. I've run the same area for years and the gps is still all over the place. Thankfully it only takes 5 minutes to find a signal (down from 10). Coros does it in 10 seconds but whatevs I suppose mediocrity is king.
Who to contact 4/5
App is down but no website for support
Love the app it is astonishing has been helping with My runs more everyday
Very good but some ai updates to make more Smooth could be appreciated 5/5
By hi Rt;(
Latest update has problems 3/5
The latest update has screwed up the “May Day” display of activities where data overlaps other data. Please fix.
Black screening death 1/5
The app is working pretty well until recently and now every time I try to start it up, I get the black screen of death. No amount of reinstalling the app will help and the app is basically unusable. Outreach has not been successful to the development team.
I really love this watch so far. I’ve had it for about 3 weeks, and it’s been a nice little addition to my running regimen. It is easy to learn and figure out.
5 of 5 stars 5/5
Great app and works well with other activity tracking apps. Best app for running
Bad network connection 2/5
I get a message daily that says “Network connection error’. I have to completely delete app, and reinstall it, to get it to work (sometimes “. I’ve never had this problem with Apple Watch ever. This app is very unstable. If I’m going to pay $800 for a watch, it would be nice for the support app to work….
So many features! 5/5
When I switched from my old Forerunner 405 to my current Fénix 5x, I was impressed with the app features. From running to biking to hiking to backpacking, the app has helped me track my progress. And if its easy to use! I haven’t had any issues.
Time change screws up the alarm times 1/5
This has happened multiple times and it’s frustrating. Every time the time changes, the alarms get bumped an hour! My watch changes time automatically! Don’t touch the alarm times!!!
The only way to get it back to the correct time is to set it for an hour before. So if I need to set it for 8am, I have to choose 7am for some stupid reason. Maybe it’s a bug, but this can be a huge issue.
Every time there is daylight savings change, the alarms do not work properly. Always off by an hour. they can’t be changed in the app, just reverts back to whatever it was set for before daylight savings change.
Time for an Apple Watch
LOVE it! Great for real life, not just elite 5/5
I love the Garmin connect app. I love that I can personalize everything from what I see on the screen for my phone to my watch right from the app. The features are wonderful for training and monitoring. I have used this app now through two pregnancies. It has been nice to watch my fitness and be able to reflect back across the last 3 years to see the difference between each pregnancy. With integration of the body battery, it was fascinating to see how my heart rate variability changed during the last four weeks of my pregnancy. The only thing I wish the app had for the pregnancy piece was a spot to track contractions. That literally has everything else you would need. Now, a request, and not a complaint-would love to see this app integrate with Carbon for nutrition tracking. Thanks, Garmin, for being amazing as always.
Font color change on you photo with stat 1/5
Font color change on you photo with stat is missing from last update, it now only has black option, you could do it to black font by pressing and release, but no more.. please fix it back
It would be cool to have an easy access keyword search feature. There are so many customization options sometimes it takes 10 minutes to find what you’re looking for lol.
Another suggestion is to have a clear button, for example when I am renaming my activity I have to sit and hold the delete button until it deletes every letter individually, instead of just hitting a tiny x to clear it like most iOS software has.
Overall this app has much room for improvement, however at the end of the day it does get the job done. I love the data and the customization options that make your Garmin device YOUR Garmin device.
Cannot pair Watch Anymore 1/5
By Geek 452
Well my Garmin watch is useless. After the latest update, I had to pair the watch all over again. When I go to enter the pairing code in the box, it says Scan Text, and will not bring up the keyboard to type it in. I scan the text on my watch and nothing happens. The watch…. Which Garmin charges a lot for, is useless at this point. This must be Garmins way of saying your Fenix 5 is outdated and must upgrade. Well if that’s the case, I would just buy the Apple Watch Ultra at this point.
Great company 5/5
Love Garmin. Had an issue with my watch called up and got a replacement right away. The app is also great gives you plenty of data.
Fenix 3 HR 1/5
Be prepared to buy a new watch when they no longer “support” your $900 watch
Crashing when clicking on Garmin Coach 3/5
New update seems to have some issues
If you own a garmin is obviously a must to 5/5
Perfect app for a washed athlete 😂 5/5
By Future World Record Holder
This app is great it’s easy to use and sync’s incredibly well with my Garmin 45 Forerunner. It’s nice to track the various health metrics for activities and keeps me competitive with myself. Highly recommend for anyone that’s looking to make a comeback!
“Pairing Failed” With News Scale 1/5
Purchased a new scale and the only message I get from this app is that pairing keeps failing. I’ve tried resetting, updating to latest for phone and app, restarting app. Nothing works. Will return scale immediately.
Ridiculous Uodates 1/5
I don’t know why every update seems to change something the user previously liked. For instance, the spacing between mile splits, less is better. Now you’re no longer able to switch text from white to black and vice versa.
Watch stops counting steps after update 1/5
After updating the software, my Vivoactive 3 no longer counts my steps and I can no longer swipe up or down to see my recent activity records. I feel scammed by Garmin and forced to buy a new watch.
Newest update March 2023 1/5
After 3 years, this update decided to break the synchronization with my watch, over 3 hours (a cost of 150$ loss) of my free time to try and resume/connect my watch with my phone. Not happy.
Excellent features for training 5/5
Since switching to Garmin, I’ve gotten more insightful training feedback (aerobic, anaerobic, training effect etc) and has helped improve my fitness overall
Android VS IPhone 4/5
Edited: I got my Garmin Instinct while still rocking an android and it was the best. Reply via my watch, automatically sync. Then I got an IPhone and since then I HAVE to open the Garmin Connect app every single time I want to ensure it’s synced so that I get push notifications. Apple also doesn’t allow me to use my watch to reply. It’s one incredible phone but the change in phone? Is a definite downside that costs it the full five stars.
Confusing update I’ve learned. And it’s really illogical. Garmin is supposed to be an app that does it all in one, right? So why does the distance instead being sent from Garmin that did the tracking, to a fitness app? So run two apps to do what Garmin on android did all in one.
Routing fundamentally broken 1/5
App works fine in most aspects, but the route creation is entirely non functional. You are forced to use “popularity routing”, which does not have sufficient data to create routes in every location I have tried.
Overall Good 4/5
The “Add Data” feature doesn’t work
Update not so good 3/5
Been using app for some time and love pretty much everything, but as others have notes, the new size of the data fields for activities is way too large and very obtrusive. Haven’t seen adds yet, but if I do, I’ll have to adjust my rating down another notch
No complaints 5/5
Tracks distance well with my run and cycling. Swim is sometimes off but nothing I can’t live with.
Latest update “My Day” data fields to large 2/5
The latest update changed the size of the data fields to a size that is to large. It really ruins the functionality.
“Add data” buttons break after using them once 2/5
It’s a really nice app but why have the “add data” buttons been broken for years now? You open the app and they work the first time you tap. You can add hydration, weight, activity, etc. but next time you try to tap them, nothing happens. You either have to go to a different screen and then back or restart the app to make them work again. This bug has existed for years! I hoped with the recent update that changed the UI to a single “Add data” button this would be fixed but no. Otherwise the app works great but it’s ridiculous that this bug has existed for so long.
Latest update to v126.96.36.199 1/5
This latest update is awful! Thanks for the latest feature - Advertisements! That’s what I always wanted are ads for the latest Garmin products in my dashboard. On top of that the add data link is broken, the collapsed view of activities is larger than the expanded view, so many more fails and bugs I can’t list them all here. Great job on the worst update yet!
Decent tracking app. Leaves some room to be desired. 3/5
Overall a good app but there’s some expanded functionality that one would think would be included.
1.Exporting of user data would be nice.
2.Searching the strength activity for a specific exercise to see what the last set/weight was done the last time that exercise was done. that’s kind of the whole reason for the strength tracking so you can edit the exercise if it’s wrong. Track the weight with it. But you have to remember when that exercise was last done so you might as well track it in a book anyways since you can’t search it.
3.Some MMA/BJJ activities would be nice. I wear a HR pro strap for those activities and don’t have an issue but I don’t like that it equates a distance ran with the activity from having a custom activity.
Doesn’t stay synced with my fitness pal 2/5
Worked initially but now doesn’t sync up with MFP. Garmin customer support was usrless
LOVE this app 5/5
Currently training for a 10k and this is my first time using this app and using my garmin watch and I LOVE it. It has everything you need to track your health throughout the day AND track your runs. It has all the data, it’s accurate, and easy to use. Great job Garmin!
Great app but 5/5
Wish Garmin would make the Epix 2 watch UI as nice as the forerunner 265 and 965.
Not an easy task to submit a bug. Will use this channel 5/5
The 3/1/23 update fixed the issue below. Thank you!
(FIXED)The landscape bike speed graph shows wrong speed on the tooltip. My graph is set to km/h. The values on the graph are correct. But holding the finger to see the detail on the pop up will show a different value. I was able to deduct that the tooltip is multiplying the value on the graph. Where the max on graph is correctly shown 30.8km/h matching the scale on the left, the tooltip shows 110,8km/h.
I love my watch but the app has always been mediocre and unattractive. Now it looks worse.
UI issues 1/5
By Gus Berger
The new version has a number of user interface issues, particularly around the dashboard view of recent workouts.
Cant enter exercise in gym & Fitness 3/5
Every time I try to enter an exercise or changes wrong one. If I try to change the 5th set the app will change the first set instead. If I try to change the 16 set, it’ll change the 8th. Does this on iPhone or iPad. Tried changing text size. Same thing.
Poor app 1/5
First of all, it needs to read data from apple health in order to be competitive in the category. Anyways, aside from that, app has so much issues it's a shame for Garmin.
Love the devices… 4/5
By nbk evisksnbshffcbwll. dh
Love the app… but please please please fix the Garmin Coach “only easy runs” glitch, it wastes weeks of training just trying to get the thing to work the way y’all say it’s supposed to work.
Great app, but horrible to edit 3/5
Great at recording my everyday stats, but if the app recognizes wrong the exercise I’m doing and I want to edit it. It will just mess everything up. Idk if it’s trying to put things alphabetically but the second I change the exercise it will delete some other exercise and double the one I edit it. Or just completely change a different exercise and change the working time and volume. Fun app, but my frustrating to use it.
Been better since… 4/5
It’s been a while since my review and it definitely improved a lot. I mainly use it for sleep tracking & steps. I live a sedentary life anyway. Im really trying to move as much as I can and I still refused to switch to the apple watch since I reviews on sleep tracking of Garmin is way a lot better.
7/28/2020- finally it’s back again!!! i hope there’s great improvement with that long “maintenance” that had happened... maintenance again🤦🏻♀️ Update: omigosh! maintenance for over 2 days now... 😞
Excelente herramienta 5/5
Muy buena aplicación, herramienta necesaria para mejorar tus entrenamientos!
Strength training editing issue 1/5
I’m not sure if it’s just mine but every time I go to edit my exercises on my strength training session, when it involves bench press and incline bench press, the app rearranges all the reps when I go to find the exercise. This happens to all the exercise during that specific session with chest and back. Leg session edits fine and arm session edits fine as well
