Garmin is excited to announce API partnerships today with leading fitness applications Strava, MapMyFitness (including MapMyRun and MapMyRide) and Endomondo. The partnerships allow Garmin Connect™ users to seamlessly view their data in these third-party applications. Garmin is continuing to work on partnerships with additional third-party training applications.
When logged into Strava, MapMyFitness and/or Endomondo users can opt to link their Garmin Connect account to automatically sync. Once the accounts are linked, users’ activities are viewable on the third-party platforms immediately after they are uploaded via Garmin Express, Garmin Connect Mobile™ or WiFi. Users can currently link with a Strava account; availability for MapMyFitness and Endomondo will be coming soon.
