Garmin launches updated Garmin Connect Mobile application

GC - CyclingGarmin International Inc. today announced updates to Garmin Connect Mobile, an intuitive application where Garmin users can easily find the information, data and features that are important to them. With this update, the app now has a modern and colorful design, with a new graphical interface that can be tailored to the user based on individual interests. Whether users are training for a marathon, trying to fit in more steps throughout the day or working to improve their golf game, Garmin Connect Mobile will show the most important and relevant data to meet their needs.

“We’re excited to bring a new look and feel to the Garmin Connect Mobile app,” said Andrew Silver, Garmin EMEA Product Manager, Fitness & Wearables. “The new interface and customization options make it easy for users to focus on their personal wellness goals and milestones, no matter what Garmin device they’re using or where they are on their journey to a healthier and more active lifestyle. With the revamped Garmin Connect Mobile, results have never looked better.”

Helping keep users on track with their health and wellness goals daily and over time, the new and easy-to-navigate look and feel will include daily snapshots, a calendar, leaderboards and a newsfeed for optimum user experience and engagement. The new interface can be tailored to the individual user for easy access to data that’s most relevant to the user. Users can select their own snapshots (or dashboards) that allow them to focus on their goals and interests, ranging anywhere from increasing daily steps, getting a better night’s sleep or training for an upcoming race. At a glance, Garmin Connect Mobile users are able to track their progress and get valuable insight into their activities with metrics that matter.

This update also allows for additional social sharing through the newsfeed, leaderboards and the updated Challenges feature where users can compete in a weekly step challenge against other Garmin Connect users that average the same amount of weekly steps. With compatible devices, users can wirelessly upload their data directly from the device to the online network, share progress on social media or even share their workouts in real time using the Live Track feature.
