Tutorial: Connect with Garmin

, Posted in Tutorial

Getting your activities synced from Garmin to RUNALYZE is very easy (since May 2018)

Step 1 – Click on the automatic sync button

Step 2 – Click on “Connect with Garmin”

Step 3 – Authorize RUNALYZE to get access to your activities. Click on “I Consent” to do so

Step 4 – Getting the activities synced

When your account is connected with Garmin all future activities and those of the last thirty days will be transferred. To start the initial sync you need to track at least one new activity at Garmin. Afterwards Garmin will send us the last 30 days of activities. This can take some time (hours up to one day).


If you want to stop the synchronization with garmin, just click on “Disconnect from Garmin” on the “Automatic Sync” page


Why do you get only the last thirty days of activities by Garmin and how do I get them all?

Unfortunately, we do not know the “why”. We get a maximum of the last thirty days of user activity through this Garmin interface. Unfortunately, we do not get a special regulation, as there are for some other providers. We have a secret/hidden tool at RUNALYZE – You will find it at https://runalyze.com/tool/garmin-import. Just login with your Garmin Connect Credentials and we will try to download all your activities into your RUNALYZE account.

Activities are all synced as runs

We have only mapping for some types of sport. From time to time we will add more sport mappings. We will add an sync option to define a fallback sport type

Can I define which activities are synced?

No, you cannot define which activities should be synced. We always get all activities by garmin.

I have already uploaded activities within the last thirty days. Will there be duplicates?

No duplicates should be created – The activity’s start time will be used to identify possible duplicates.

– Activities of Zwift and other external vendors that synchronize activities to Garmin do not appear on Runalyze

Garmin doesn’t send us these activities. Unfortunately, we cannot change this.

– Are steps, weight data and co also transmitted?

No, this data can only be accessed via another Garmin API. We will connect this API when we have revised the health section at RUNALYZE.

We are working on adding a direct synchronization with other portals. We don’t have a fixed timetable for that.
