Sync Your Garmin Device With Cronometer

updated may 2023

Many of our users know that we’ve been supporting a Garmin integration for a long time now – almost a decade! Garmin supporters have long had the option to import their weight, body fat percentage, sleep, activity, heart rate and heart rate time series data into their Cronometer accounts.

In our latest app update, we’ve introduced support for a few new metrics – blood pressure, heart rate variability (HRV), oxygen saturation (SpO2) and respiration rate.

Even better, HRV, SpO2 and respiration rate are being imported as a time series, so you can click on the entry in your Diary to view a chart of how the metric has been changing over the day.

If you’re interested in having these import into your Cronometer account and already have your Garmin device connected, head to your Settings > Connect Apps & Devices >Devices and click on Garmin to select your desired metrics.

How To Sync Your Garmin Device

Sync your Garmin data with your Cronometer account by navigating to the Settings section of the app. On mobile, make sure you’re on the latest version of the app, then click on Connect Apps & Devices > Devices. Select Garmin from the list of available devices and follow the prompts to link with your Garmin account. 

On the web browser, click Settings > Devices. Select Garmin from the list of available devices and follow the prompts to link with your Garmin account. 

Once connected, select which metrics you’d like to sync into Cronometer and the app will automatically pull the data into your Diary.
