Synchronising swim workouts with Garmin - any plans?
It would be great if swim workouts can be synchronised with Garmin like the run and bike workouts are. I'm manually inputing them into Garmin Connect for now. Are there any plans to add this feature in the future?
Noted thanks Ricci. I don't believe that Garmin is at the stage yet where this produces a good output for the user, which is why we haven't yet enabled this. Please do correct me if you feel I'm wrong here. The current best solution users are using is that they click on the hamburger icon (upper right corner) and print the workout, putting that print out on a paddle board or other poolside.
Hi Paul, I always build the swim workouts in Garmin's really really buggy workout builder and I simply add the pacing info as a comment for each step. The watch (Forerunner 245) then runs me through the workout in the pool and counts lengths. It would be amazing if you could push swim workouts to the Garmin account just as you push run and bike workouts.
Hi @ben, unfortunately Garmin still hasn't enabled third parties to push workouts to their watches yet. This is a common request from our users and it is frustrating to have to manually build in Garmin Connect or print out the Athletica swim workout, but until Garmin makes it possible, we're not able to do this. My personal solution is to print and put it in a ziplock 🙁
@markbridges Oh, so the Garmin API only allows you to push bike and run - but no swim workouts?
