How It Works

  • We provide data in JSON format, which summarizes the individual user data uploaded to Garmin Connect from supported devices. Data includes heart rate, steps, calories, sleep, respiration, body composition as well as detailed stress, pulse-ox, and epoch summaries for all-day activities.
  • 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 Health API.
