Export workouts to Garmin
How do I export a workout as a .fit file?
There are two ways to export a workout as a .fit file.
- Through the workout detail: Open the workout and in the "Planned workout" block, click the "Export" button on the right.
- Through the calendar: Right-click on a workout, and in the contextual menu the option "Export" will be available.
Then in the window that opened, click on the .fit option to download the file.
Note: If these buttons are not available, the workout was not formatted as an exportable workout or the content of the exportable workout is invalid (e.g., if no blocks were added yet)
How do I automatically send a .fit file to my Garmin?
To send an exportable workout to your Garmin device quickly and easily, you only need to click on the Garmin Connect icon at the top of the workout detail. This workout will now be automatically forwarded to your Garmin Connect and will be available on your Garmin device within the planned workouts.
