Does anyone know if this is configurable? I am not interested in data transfer in the opposite direction (that is from Garmin Connect to Apple Health) because I am using Apple watch to count my steps and want this data to be available in Garmin Connect.
This is a big disappointment. I prefer my Forerunner 935 for swimming, biking and running, but the Apple watch is a much better 'smart watch' for day to day use. This decision by Garmin to not accept step data from the Apple watch is only pushing me towards using Apple Health instead of Garmin Connect.
It is sad that Garmin will not allow data to be read FROM Healthkit, only the oneway push. I prefer my Fenix and Edge devices as my sporting workhorses, I do not like Apple Watch for these since battery life is doo doo on them and Garmin has been doing this for years! Apple Watch is more of a fashion fitness watch. I would even be happy if we could just manually input the stats such as steps, sleep, etc. Don't worry Garmin, you are not going to lose customers, Connect displays data better than looking at my iPhone to view Health data, that is where Apple is messing up. So why don't you play nice and allow data to be pulled?
