FOR RUNCOACH USERS

1. Tap the Three Lines (on top left corner of your phone screen).
2. Select "Device Sync"
3. Tap "Sync with Garmin Connect or  or Garmin Health.".
4. Log into your Garmin account and grant access.

From the web, on a computer:

1. Login.
2. Select drop down on the top right of the page
3. Select "Device Sync" from the upper Right-hand corner of the screen.
4. Select "Garmin Connect or Garmin Health" as the service option.
5.Log into your Garmin account and authorize the permissions

FOR MOVECOACH USERS

Garmin Devices with no activity trackers (Garmin Connect)
Make sure that you have the most recent versions of the Movecoach or Runcoach App for Android or iOS (iPhone).

On your mobile device:

1. Tap the Me icon (on the bottom-left corner of your phone screen).
2. Select "More."
3. Select "Sync A Service."
4. Tap "Sync with Garmin Connect."

This action will take you to the Garmin Connect website.  Log in and follow the instructions.

Initially, it takes 72 Hours for data from Garmin Connect to be uploaded to your Movecoach or Runcoach log. This wait is part of Garmin’s process. After the initial sync, Garmin will automatically import data into your log every time you sync your Garmin device with Garmin Connect.    

*Remember: Your workouts are uploaded from the server of each syncing service, not the device that you wear. In order to upload your activity to your Movecoach or Runcoach training log, you must regularly sync your device to Garmin's web platform.

Make sure that you have the most recent versions of the Movecoach or Runcoach App for Android or iOS (iPhone).

This action will take you to the Garmin Wellness website.  Log in and follow the instructions. Initially, it will take 72 hours for your Garmin Wellness data to be imported to your log. (This is part of Garmin’s process). After that, Garmin will automatically import step data and GPS data into your log.
