Garmin Connect

You can now connect your Runtastic Account to your Garmin Connect account. This means that you are able to import activities that you track with your Garmin device into your Runtastic account.


To connect your Garmin Connect account to your Runtastic account, please follow the steps below:

  • Make sure you have installed the latest version of the Runtastic app on your phone
  • Tap “Profile” followed by the “gear icon” in the top right corner
  • Choose “Partner Accounts”
  • Select the “Connect” button next to “Garmin Connect”
  • Click on “authorise” to enable Garmin to share data with Runtastic
  • Enter your Garmin log in details

Once your account is connected, any sports activities that you undertake with your Garmin device, once synced to your Garmin Connect account, will also be imported to your Runtastic account.* A push notification will inform you when your activity is available.

Garmin activities tracked prior to linking your Runtastic account to Garmin Connect will not be imported.

Garmin Supported Devices

This feature supports all GPS-enabled Garmin devices.

Which Data gets imported to Runtastic?

The following data will be imported into Runtastic: Distance, Duration, Pace, Split Times, Elevation*, Calories and Heart Rate. As Garmin Connect is designed differently, certain data such as Heart Rate Zones, Power, Cadence, Steps, Active Minutes and Sleep will not be synced.

Note: a “multisport session” is synced to Runtastic as separate activities. For example, if you track a Triathlon activity, it will be imported to Runtastic as three separate sessions. (Swimming, Cycling, Running).

* Once imported into Runtastic, you may notice a difference in the Elevation Values. It is, however, possible to edit these values using the instructions linked here.


To disconnect your Runtastic account from your Garmin Connect account, please follow the steps below:

  • Tap “Profile” followed by the “gear icon” in the top right corner
  • Choose “Partner Accounts”
  • Select the “Connect” button next to “Garmin Connect”

Although it will still show as “connected to Runtastic” in Garmin Connect, the connection will no longer be active. If you would like to change this display in your Garmin Connect account, log in with your account details on and click Profile > Settings > Account Information.
