Activity API Features

The Activity API provides access to the detailed fitness data captured during an activity on the user’s wearable device or cycling computer. Fitness, training, wellness, or health tracking platforms can all benefit from leveraging the Activity API.

How It Works

  • The Activity API offers access to FIT files. If you are interested in finding out more about the FIT file, check out the FIT SDK documentation.
  • After initial consent, end-users sync their device with Garmin Connect to upload device data, at which point it is accessible via the API.
  • After approval, you will have access to an evaluation environment to test the Garmin Connect Activity API.
