Offline gpx track extraction from smart watch

How can I extract recorded gpx tracks from my watch without uploading them to the Garmin cloud first? This upload/cloud approach is roundabout and has privacy issues.

I hate any kind of cloud.

The watch connects as a standard USB mass storage device and all the necessary information should be already there, completely offline.

  • ...so did you browse the content of said watch using Windows Explorer or whatever file manager you're using and searched for these GPX files manually in the first place? Nobody forces you to upload anything anywhere, that's for sure.

    Which watch do you own?
