Upfront: Overall, the app has improved in the last 2-3 years. It was previously quite unreliable to get a connection between Garmin device and phone, and syncing was hit and miss - usually more miss. That has improved, and the interface is ... better.
However: Really starting to get frustrated with the duplication in transfer of data - every synch seems to repeat the transfer of previous activities into “Apple Fitness”. This is well known to Garmin and seems to have been dragging over multiple years and versions.
I also find the lack of data transfer/interface (between Garmin recording and Apple Fit / Health aggregating and it) to be tiresome. I appreciate this is not all on Garmin but let’s be grown ups and recognise it is 2021.
** shout out at you Apple - I like my Apple watch but not is NOT my only device and if you keep forcing me to choose one it WON’T be yours.
Ever since I’ve updated the app, my gps and tracking has been inaccurate. Is this n issue with the most recent update or my watch itself, my watch was bought in June 2020 so it’s still fairly new.
For reference I just went on a 8.5km run however my watch only recorded it was 5km at 9min/km and in a completely different location.
Some guidance would be appreciated thank you.
Home screen interface ordering is pointless. Changes every time you open it or rearranges itself on completely overnight. Still no proper support for my edge 520 which synced seamlessly when first purchased to quickly not being able to connect or upload activities. Sometimes the updates bring more bugs than they fix. Disappointing when things go backwards.
I think it’s really good. You have heaps of information that comes from your watch onto your phone. And with the GPS signal on my Garmin Vivoactive 3 I can see where I have been on my last ride walk or run through Apple Maps
I would really highly recommend the switch to Garmin.
I found the app would randomly start itself in the background then continue to run, which depleted my phone battery, (not good if you need to make an emergency call) then, the only way to stop it, was to go into settings and press force stop several times to get it to shut down.

Over the past 3 or 4 days the watch has been having a Sync error where information like sleep data does not upload to Garmin Connect. The error says:
I recently started wanting to wear my watch more and I thought I would get the app back but the app doesn’t support the watch anymore so I can’t connect it to my phone anymore.
Pretty easy to use. I have managed to organise every information i use on to the main screen easily. Always synchronise with my watch. Never had any issue with that. Good app.
All good except for be thing.
Please allow this app to be able to check lap swim lap time.
At this version, you have to open a laptop, which should not be the case of Garmin.
