Connecting With Garmin

How to sync your SportTracks account to Garmin Connect

Uploading data to SportTracks from Garmin watches, bike computers, and the Index™ Smart Scale is extremely easy. You just need to enable our Garmin auto-sync feature. Afterward, your fitness data will be automatically uploaded to SportTracks without any manual steps.

Configuration

1. Select your profile in the upper right corner of SportTracks, then select the My Account button, then select the Sharing tab.

2. Click the Connect button.

3. Select the Garmin Connect option.

4. Click Allow on the Garmin Connect website to authorize SportTracks to access your account.

5. Almost done! To finish the connection click the Finish button on your Sharing page.

Note: If you're a new user without any workout history in SportTracks, you can also import your entire Garmin Connect history by entering your email and password. SportTracks will schedule your data to be slurped up some time in the next 24 hours.

Deactivation

If you'd like to deactivate the sync feature some time in the future, go to the Sharing page and click the Remove button next to the Garmin Connect service.

Disabling other sync services

If you're currently using another service to sync your data from Garmin Connect such as tapiriik.com you'll want to disable it to prevent duplicate workouts. Find the sync service on the same Sharing page and click the Remove.

Technical notes

Our auto-sync feature uses the official Garmin Connect API.

When a workout is uploaded from your watch via WiFi, ANT+ or USB the Garmin Express app on your phone, PC or Mac will send the workout to Garmin Connect. Within seconds SportTracks.mobi will receive a notification behind the scenes from Garmin with the uploaded .FIT or .TCX file. At that point we take this workout file and import it into your log, the same as if you had done this manually.

~Enjoy

Hey Aaron Averill and the whole Sport Tracks Team,
I use Sport Tracks since 2006, first with a Garmin FR 405 and now with a FR 935. The Data upload to Garmin Connect and Sport Tracks works very good. It is a good Motivation to see what i have done.

With theese Experiences, i bought a Garmin Index Smart Scale and installed it to Garmin Connect. Now the Weight-Data is automaticly sent and shown in Garmin Connect. But the Weight Data is not uploaded to Sport Tracks. Why? What can i do? Please help me.

Can the Garmin scale automaticly upload to Sport Tracks, or must I buy a Withings Scale to use the automaticly sync of weight data?

Many thanks and Greetings
Bernd Linnenbaum

Hey Aaron Averill and Sport Tracks Team,
I removed the Sync to Garmin Connect and then enabled it again. Now the Upload of Weight-Data works very well.

I have to say thanks to the Sport Tracks Team for this great Program. Especially the Swimming-Data is very good and clearly arranged. Great Job! I use Sport Tracks for motivation, looking for my performance and I am very resposive with it. Thank you very much!

I have been using Garmin auto-sync with an Edge 800 for a while - worked just fine.
Now, switched to Edge 520 plus the map doesn't show up any more - neither with auto-sync nor with manual file upload.
Any idea?

Hi all, I have been using sporttracks st for over 10 years and have a lot of data stored on my laptop, how do I transfer across to mobi.? It won't accept files of over 50mb.
Thanks Carwyn

Can I export my training data, i.e. as *.csv data? In the old Version I could copy/paste the data into Excel.
