| Sync your Garmin Connect Account with Final Surge
NOTE: If you don’t have a Garmin watch, you can purchase a Garmin Watch HERE.
Importing your Garmin data just got easier. Introducing our new Garmin Connect Sync feature! Link your Garmin Connect account with your Final Surge account, automatically syncing any workouts that get uploaded to Garmin Connect.
How it Works
Linking your Garmin Connect Account with your Final Surge account is very easy. Simply log into your Final Surge account, click on the Garmin/Device upload link from the main Workouts navigation, and then click the new Link Garmin Connect Account button. You will then click “Authorize Sync” to be redirected to the Garmin Connect site. Type in your username and password on their site to complete the link between accounts.
Once the accounts are linked, any file that is uploaded to Garmin Connect will also automatically be transferred to your Final Surge account. If you have a Garmin device which uses Bluetooth such as the Forerunner 620, then workouts will be transferred wirelessly to both your Garmin Connect and Final Surge accounts.
Click on the Garmin/Device Upload link
In the main navigation at the top of your training log under Workouts, click on “Garmin/Device Upload” to be taken to our Garmin Import page.
Click the Link Garmin Connect Account button
Once on the Garmin Import page, click the blue Link Garmin Connect Account button.
Click the Authorize Sync Button
Clicking the Authorize Sync button will redirect you to a page on the Garmin Connect website. This page will prompt you to type in your username and password to approve the sync with Final Surge. Additionally, you will see a checkbox on this page to import your last 30 days of workouts from Garmin Connect. If you check this box, Garmin Connect will also send your previous 30 days of workouts to your Final Surge account. Only check this box if you have not already logged your last 30 days of workouts in Final Surge. Otherwise, duplicate workouts will show up on your calendar when Garmin sends the previous 30 days of data.
Enter your Garmin Connect Username and Password
To finish the syncing process, you must enter your Garmin Connect username and password to allow them to send the data to your Final Surge account. Once you have entered your credentials on this page, you will be redirected back to Final Surge. That’s it!
The next time you upload a workout to Garmin Connect, that workout will automatically be sent over to your Final Surge account as well.
If you have any trouble syncing your accounts or have any additional questions about this feature, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
30-DAY WORKOUT HISTORY
If you have chosen to import your last 30-days of workouts from Garmin Connect, this will not happen until you have uploaded your first workout to Garmin (after you have synced your Final Surge account with Garmin Connect). Once you upload that initial workout, Garmin will then queue up your history at that time and send that history over to Final Surge within 24-78 hours.
Note: Final Surge is also compatible with Apple watches. If you have an Apple wath, please follow these directions.
