The updated Garmin Connect app, compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, is claimed to be easier to use with a more concise layout and provides easier access to features like leaderboards, daily snapshots, a calendar and newsfeed. The interface and presented data can be tailored to your requirements, so you can easily view the data you use the most. 

“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 customisation 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.”

Garmin has also added more social sharing features to the new app, with an updated Challenges feature allowing users to compete in a weekly challenge against other Garmin Connect users. 

The app can be used with any Bluetooth compatible Garmin Edge and allows you to upload data directly to the app, and you can also send courses and workouts to the Edge.

It's available for the iPhone here and Android phones here.
