SportTracks + Garmin Partnership
Solution provides a seamless training experience for endurance athletes
Millions of athletes using Garmin devices now have access to robust data analysis from SportTracks
DURHAM, N.C. – SportTracks, a fitness application company that helps elite athletes achieve their training goals through data analysis and metric driven training, today announced a partnership that will allow millions of Garmin Connect users to seamlessly view their data in SportTracks applications.
Garmin Connect is a free online fitness community that allows users to analyze training progress, set and track goals, and share activities with other Garmin Connect users or on social media sites.
“We are thrilled with this partnership,” said Aaron Averill, CEO of SportTracks. “Now athletes can spend less time transferring data and more time incorporating immediate, actionable insights into their training plan. You can walk in from your run, hit the stop button on your Garmin, open SportTracks on your tablet, and have the most robust analysis available, right at your fingertips.”
When logged into SportTracks, users can link their Garmin Connect account to automatically sync. Once the accounts are linked, users’ activities are immediately viewable on SportTracks. Averill said the response from athletes in a beta test of the integration between SportTracks and Garmin has been overwhelmingly positive.
“Performance athletes have busy lives and need a seamless training experience,” said Averill. “Data from all their devices should be available wherever they are. They want to go from recording data, to analyzing performance, to planning their next workout, and they want that experience to be as easy as possible.”
SportTracks provides insight that matters through custom analysis and an athlete centered design. From logging workouts to detailed analytics and community support, SportTracks gives athletes the tools and resources necessary to safely achieve their goals. SportTracks offers both SportTracks 3, a Windows application and SportTracks.mobi, a mobile friendly web app.
