Garmin Connect Mobile Review
Garmin Connect™ is an app which is made for users of Garmin devices such as fitness trackers and different types of watches to makes wearing those more efficient.
You can download Garmin Connect™ for iOS and Android.
Functionality — 5/5
With this app, you obviously can change settings to your Garmin gadget. You can put there your heart rate zone, your training plan, your sleeping hours, desired step plan and many other features. It's much more comfortable to do it from the app than from any Garmin gadget because the screen here is bigger.
Design — 5/5
Very cool design with real-life pictures at the lock screen. Your stats screens are with a black background. The stats themselves are in nice blue, orange and purple colors and their mixes. It’ nice to look at during the night but black isn’t good to look at during daylight especially not on Retina’s screens. So maybe it would be a great idea to have other themes options.
Usability — 5/5
This app’s usability depends a lot on specific Garmin device that you use at the moment. Moreover, this app makes its features to extend to a new level. You can but the simplest black and white Garmin device where you can see only typical stats like heartbeat rate, step counter, and distance measure. But Garmin connect helps you to make pie charts and general massive statistics on your workout results and your health.
From this Garmin Connect™ review you won't know even half of what this app can do so you have to check out yourself. A big part of it is calendar, your personal schedule, diet management, finding and creating your own running tracks. Also here you not only can find yourself a pro coach but you can also find the whole new community of sports junkies - just like.
Cross-platform use — 3/5
To successfully use this app you need to have iOS 10.0 or later. One of the coolest features in Garmin Connect is that you compete with your friends. That's why it's not very convenient because not everyone has this iOS version and not everybody has an iPhone. This app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Oh, and you need to Garmin gadget first.
No in-app purchases here because to use this app you have to buy one of Garmin fitness bracelets or a watch, including Golf Watch. So it's appropriate that it doesn't ask you to buy something else. But you can always browse other Garmin stuff besides the one you already have from this app.
The Bottom Line
If you're already an owner of Garmin gadgets universe, you have to download Garmin Connect. And if not - you'll probably want to purchase one of those so you could use this app. It'll definitely help you become healthier and more organized about your workout routine with its multiple features. Don't forget to tell friends about it or find other people who already use this app - sports is always more fun when together.Collapse
