View Full Version : Garmin Fit - First Time Experience

11-02-2011, 11:11 AM

I couldn't see a distinct forum for the Garmin Fit app so am posting here.

I used it for the first time today on my iPhone with the Ant+ dongle, using both a heart rate monitor and a foot pod on the treadmill in the gym.

A few observations:

1. Going to the home screen of the iPhone then back to the Garmin app causes the sensor connections to drop
2. I have it set to autolap at 1km but it shows no laps at the end of the run
3. I am logged into Garmin Connect but it has yet to show in my Dashboard even though it states automatic upload in the app description


I get Garmin keeping this pretty basic so as not to cannibalize their fitness line, but the ability to set a distance goal for a run would be nice.

As would autoscroll.

OK. So it did upload eventually but there is nothing in the GUI to indicate progress or completion.

It would be great with an optional countdown timer, so you can hit the start button and than put the iPhone in your pocket before the stopwatch starts.
