  • Display time in zone for power and heart rate. Zones are downloaded from garmin connect.

Goal of the Program

  • Goal is to provide convenient and full access to all our data from your mobile device.
  • The app was tested with data from forerunner, garminswim, garmin edge, garmin fenix and garmin fit app.
  • It’s intended to handle large numbers of activities (tested with 2000 activities and with activities up to 6h long). For such large archives the initial download can be a bit long, especially if you have an older phone.
  • The app will not let you record any activities, but only display data uploaded from Garmin Connect.

Fist Use

  • when you start the program you will be prompted for your user name and password.
  • the app will then start downloading activities from garmin connect.
  • Note that this process can be quite slow if you have a lot of activities. For instance, 600 activities can take up to 3min on iphone 4, but much less than 1 minute on an iphone 5.
  • You can interrupt the process at any time and it will restart where it left it when you restart the app and start refreshing.
  • While it’s downloading you should be able to look at already downloaded activities but the performance will be slower than after full download completed. If any error occur during that process restart the app and it should restart the download where it left of.
  • If you have issue connecting check the trouble shooting section

How to use it

  • You can refresh by pulling down the activity list
  • You can navigate the different tabs and touching most data will let you drill down on that number.
  • You can touch a graph or the gear button to rotate through the different graphs options or bring in the graph full screen.
  • You can reload an activity to update changes in garmin connect by pulling down on the detail tab
  • You can see full history of any field by selecting the field name in the stats page
  • You can drag to the right the detail view to reveal the sharing page for Google earth or facebook/tweater sharing
  • You can tap the name of an activity to rename it. This will rename it also on Garmin Connect.
  • If an activity was deleted on garmin connect, select it in the app and pull down to refresh. It will then delete it from the app.
  • If you setup the withings service in the settings page, you should see in the details page the closest weight to that date and in the stats an extra scatter plot versus your weight. Currently to refresh you’ll have to go back to the settings page and press refresh. More graphs, auto refresh, etc will be added in later versions.
  • You can setup strava synchronization. In that case any activity you display in the detail pane will automatically be synchronized to strava

  • Great App. ★★★★★
    ConnectStats provides a traditional way to look at all of your running, biking, and swimming data. A great complement to Garmin Connect.

  • The Best ★★★★★
    Been using for yrs!
    By BTabor for Version 3.7
  • Very complete ★★★★★
    Very nice addition to the garmin app, which is much simpler but with way less options of reading the data. These is a nice app if you do some serious (or semi-serious) running and want to analyze your runs deeper than what garmin or other watch-related apps allow you to do

  • Great App ! ★★★★★
    Very useful app. I use it to track my kayaking and hiking workouts. I especially like the satellite map and the elevation profile features.
    By DCOBD for Version 3.6.2
  • Love this app! ★★★★★
    Been using for years. All of my cycling statistics in one great app. Love it!
    By Patman63 for Version 3.6.2
  • Excellent App ★★★★★
    This little program lets you have quick access to your data and view either big picture (many years) or details with ease. It's not as glitzy as the main apps but a very nice addition to the standard Garmin or Strava visualizations.
    By UP Snowblower for Version 3.6.2
  • Brilliant app ★★★★★
    Performs brilliantly, very user friendly and helpful for me wanting to see route or stats on previous rides. One of the more useful apps out there
    By Abercrombie1968 for Version 3.6.2
  • Loads of data ★★★★★
    Great for Garmin devices. Lots of graphs that I can't get in Garmin Connect.
    By Jay T Doggzone for Version 3.6.2
  • ❤️❤️❤️ this app!!! ★★★★★
    I could not ❤️ this app more than I already do! I am happy to have an app that combines all of my fitness info and activities in one place! I LOVE the activity overview page the most, but the specific info provided for each activity is invaluable!
    By MelisaThornton for Version 3.6.2
  • Good app ★★★★★
    Improved graphs, still a little confusing. Feature rich. Works well with Garmin. Developer is very responsive in keeping the app up and running as well as making improvements. This warranted a 5th star.

Garmin API Change: Good News Bad News

The bad news: it seems the old Garmin API connect stats was using is no longer working for some people which results errors during download.


The good news is that I put in ConnectStats a way to access an alternative newer API that continues to work.

So if you get errors you should be able to fix it by going to the config screen, select services, garmin and turn alternative API on.
