New Feature - Send Structured Workouts to Garmin Calendars

We've just released the first part of our push to Garmin calendar feature.

Athletes and coaches can now send structured Running and Cycling workouts to the athletes Garmin calendar so the structured workouts will appear on their devices. This feature is currently only available in the web app but will soon be an option in mobile apps as well.

This can be done one workout at a time, or by using the "sync with Garmin Calendar" button which will schedule 7 days worth of workouts into the future.

COMING SOON: Our next release will include our "autosync" feature where the system will automatically keep 7 days worth of workouts synced with the Garmin calendar. We will release that feature once we have tidied up any issues that might arise from this initial release.

How to get setup

Firstly, there is a new permission in Garmin to allow us to send workouts to athlete calendars. Athletes can either switch this on by going to their settings page and reconnecting their Garmin account or using the "Add Permissions" button. If an athlete or coach attempts to send workouts to Garmin without this permission they will be alerted with an error explaining that the permission is missing.

Athletes can also go directly to their settings in their Garmin Connect account and turn on the permission. They can get to this page from "Account Settings" from the top right-hand menu inside the web versions of Garmin Connect and then "Account Information" on the left-hand menu. The can get to this settings page using this link https://connect.garmin.com/modern/settings/accountInformation

Scroll down to find the "Training Tilt" connection and switch on the "Training" permission. If the "Training Permission" is not an option then they may be connected to our legacy Garmin integration in which case they should disconnect and reconnect their Garmin account from inside their Training Tilt account.

How to Send Workouts

Currently, workouts need to be sent manually, either one at a time or for the next seven days in advance.

Sending Individual Workouts

To send individual workouts, open a workout from the web app in calendar or dashboard view and go to the "Structured Workout" tab. Then click the "Send to Garmin" button. Wait for a response and the button will turn green. You can then use the green button to resend or remove the workouts from the Garmin calendar.
