How To Connect Garmin Data To Apple Health?

If you own an iPhone, then Apple Health can facilitate to keep all the data of your health/fitness applications and wearables. It can be easily paired up with Garmin Connect by providing a range of data as per the sensors of your Garmin Connect. This includes heart rate, resting heart rate, steps, intensity minutes, and more.

Here’s how you can connect your Apple Health with Garmin Connect:

  1. Open the Apple Health app on your iPhone
  2. Click ‘Sources’ at the bottom of the screen to search for supported platforms
  3. Tap ‘Connect’
  4. Select the data you want and don’t want to share with Apple Health

The following is a list of the data types that are shared with Apple Health:

  • Active Energy
  • Resting Energy
  • Body Mass Index
  • Body Fat Percentage
  • Steps
  • Walking + Running Distance
  • Heart Rate
  • Flights Climbed
  • Sleep Analysis
  • Weight
  • Workouts

Once Connect sharing is enabled in Apple Health, these data types will begin to sync every time after successful device sync in the Garmin Connect Application. The data is shared with Apple Health app while the Garmin Connect App is in the forefront. If the app is closed or sent to run in the background, the data transfer to Apple Health will not complete until proper sync while the Garmin Connect App is open.

Once Apple Health sharing is enabled, the app will only display the data collected from up to two weeks before sharing being enabled. Once syncing is enabled, it can only be disabled from the Sources list in the Health app and not from Connect.

However, recently some users faced issues where the Garmin connect is not reading weight in Apple Health. It is accessing other data such as Date of birth, sex, and height except for weight whose option is not even provided there.
