If you own a Garmin watch, Garmin Connect is indispensable. It’s the app you’ll use to manage your wearable from your phone and gives you a complete view of your daily activity and overall health. In essence, it’s a lot like Fitbit’s app, albeit with a few more features. Discover everything you need to know about Garmin Connect in our guide.

What is Garmin Connect?

According to Garmin, Connect is “the tool for tracking, analyzing, and sharing health and fitness activities from your Garmin device,” and that’s as brief an explanation as you can get. While the app puts your fitness and health data front and center, it also houses important Garmin device settings. In this sense, it’s a hub for your well-being data and a control panel for your Garmin watch.
