    Looking at Sleep as Android’s information, it seems like Garmin watches that support ConnectIQ apps (I may not be precise here) have an API. http://sleep.urbandroid.org/documentation/integration/wearable/

    Other Garmin watches don’t apparently have a way to get the data.

    @kevinkaland True, and it seems they are working on the API/SDK a lot, as they currently have released a new major version of it. In itself the API is very easy and supports accelerometer and other sensor data. Only a portion of their devices (the more expensive ones) do however supports these ConnectIQ apps (https://developer.garmin.com/connect-iq/compatible-devices/)

    However even the devices that do not support the ConnectIQ API do connect with their Garmin Connect cloud service, which has its own web API to get to the data. There’s a catch, though. It costs 5000 USD to get access to the web API.

    (oh and a trick here: https://www.fitnesssyncer.com/ has already access to Garmin Connect and can read a lot of data and pump it elsewhere....)

    @jiirichter the fee is not strictly required FYI. There is “wellness API” that supports garmin fitness trackers (and I think can also read workouts etc) that is free if you pass their multi-stage whitelist approval process.

    I, too would really like this. For now im using some tips here (https://github.com/petergardfjall/garminexport) to scrape together a personal solution; but an official solution would be ideal.

    Garmin syncs to Healthkit and Strava. Is that sufficient or would a direct integration be better?

    I know there’s a lot of duplicate data in HealthKit from the Strava Sync, and TBH I might get rid of Strava entirely

    Garmin activity trackers can track daily steps and sleep in addition to workouts, but Strava only provides an export of workouts, so this wouldn’t work.

    You’re right in that iOS users now can use our Apple Health integration and not need direct Garmin integration, but Android users don’t currently have a similar solution.

    I am glad it’s planned, thank you!

    Any thoughts on when this will be done? I just switched to Garmin after killing my fourth Fitbit, and I’d love to be sync that data.

    And what data do you plan to include? Just steps, sleep, and HR? Or will HRV be in there too?

    Thanks for creating such an awesome app!!

    Unfortunately Garmin doesn’t sync to Google Fit, but you can connect it to Strava and use that to sync some activity data to Exist in the meantime.

    Yes, it will probably just be those standard data types, no HRV. I can’t give you an ETA, but now it’s in planned we will aim to get this done sometime soon.

    At last, thank you! This is the only feature I’ve been waiting for. This will benefit a lot, given the continuous growth of garmin users.

    Absolutely need this exactly because for whatever reason Garmin Connect doesn’t sync w/ Google Fit (even though both have public APIs and even SDKs :( ). Looking forward to this very much.

    Yes, pretty please! (with sugar on top and all that.) Garmin integration is my #1 vote for sure…
