Peg’s Posts: Get connected



FeaturepegspostsNow there’s a new site—Garmin Connect—where our customers can analyze, store and share their fitness activities recorded with a Garmin device. Garmin Connect is similar to MotionBased, but with some enhancements and an improved user interface. In addition to tracking metrics like speed, distance, heart rate, cadence and elevation, Garmin Connect can overlay your route on a variety of Google Maps. In the near future, Garmin Connect will support new features like the ability to create, manage and view goals. Choosing from multiple goal types, users will monitor distance, times, calories and frequency. Also coming to Garmin Connect is the ability to manage device user profile information, like age, weight and gender, which can then be transferred to your device.


The Forerunner 405 debuts goal functionality to our fitness line. Setting and monitoring goals has never been easier. Garmin Connect’s intuitive user interface will make it easy to add goals and monitor progress. Goal progress can also be viewed on the device for on-the-go motivation. With wireless data transfers, the Forerunner 405 and Garmin Connect stay in sync and up-to-date. There are other cool features in the works for later versions of Garmin Connect. Stay tuned for more info. Right now, Garmin Connect accepts data from Forerunner 50 (non-GPS fitness watch) and Edge 605 and 705, our newest GPS-enabled cycle computers. Very soon, Garmin Connect will accept data from the Forerunner 405, which, like the 50, will wirelessly send data to your computer. After that, Garmin Connect will be compatible with other Garmin devices, like the Forerunner 205 and 305, Edge 205 and 305. At that time, customers currently using our MotionBased site will have their accounts migrated to Garmin Connect and they’ll be a part of one huge, worldwide community of active folks.
