Garmin partners with SportTracks

Some very interesting news from SportTracks. They have just partnered with Garmin. (See Press Release, below). Looks like SporTracks (mobi) will be easily able to be automatically updated from the online Garmin Connect.

Sync down to the PC app: You have to be using CloudSync and the mobile sporttracks for this to sync to your PC SportTracks app.

Great news though. as people ‘grow out’ of Garmin connect and start to want much more deeper or unusual analyses then they can much more easily migrate across to SportTracks.

Millions of athletes using Garmin devices now have access to robust data analysis from SportTracks

DURHAM, N.C. – SportTracks, a fitness application company that helps elite athletes achieve their training goals through data analysis and metric­driven training, today announced a partnership that will allow millions of Garmin Connect users to seamlessly view their data in SportTracks applications.

Garmin Connect is a free online fitness community that allows users to analyze training progress, set and track goals, and share activities with other Garmin Connect users or on social media sites.

“We are thrilled with this partnership,” said Aaron Averill, CEO of SportTracks. “Now athletes can spend less time transferring data and more time incorporating immediate, actionable insights into their training plan. You can walk in from your run, hit the stop button on your Garmin, open SportTracks on your tablet, and have the most robust analysis available, right at your fingertips.”

When logged into SportTracks, users can link their Garmin Connect account to automatically sync. Once the accounts are linked, users’ activities are immediately viewable on SportTracks.  Averill said the response from athletes in a beta test of the integration between SportTracks and Garmin has been overwhelmingly positive.

“Performance athletes have busy lives and need a seamless training experience,” said Averill. “Data from all their devices should be available wherever they are. They want to go from recording data, to analyzing performance, to planning their next workout, and they want that experience to be as easy as possible.”

  1. I’m currently beta testing the integration for sport tracks and it does indeed update the desktop version. Though if you use the post import plugin that won’t run on the workout data file that comes in via sporttracks.mobi.
