I've been on SparkPeople forever, and had my VivoFit 2 for 2 1/2 years, and it never occurred to me that there might be a Garmin Sparkpeople group. *facepalm* I've sent a request for the challenge group and the regular Sparkpeople group. I'm "Robyn - Stroller5", feel free to add me!

I've been a Garmin user for decades, with my first Garmin product the Forerunner for my running and triathlon sports. Finally switched to the Vivoactive in various forms with the Vivoactive HR being my current watch. My husband gets all my hand-me-down. I shoot for 10,000 steps a day minimum while also doing an hour of DVDs most days (strength training and other types).

I've done the Garmin challenges before but they seem to mess up a lot (in the past) so I haven't done them in a while.

I got my vivosmart HR ten days ago and I have used it every day. On the third day I made the preset goal and fire works went off on the screen. It's so good to be up and moving again.

Hi there! Old to Spark, new to Garmin -- just got a Vivofit 2. I *think* I just joined/requested to join the Sparkpeople group on Garmin connect...

I have some physical challenges (RA/Fibromyalgia) that might always have me bringing up the rear on any challenges, but I'm dedicated to getting my butt moving in 2018, albeit a little late coming out of the gate, lol.

I'm trying for 8000 steps a day but I say I average about 4890+ steps a day. Some days I do better than others. Today is going to probably be a slow day - I have to do our taxes!

Li'l old me...I average 7K steps a day so far this year compared to 10-15K last year when I ran the marathon. During it, I ran over 52K steps. Kind of got tired. Staying with 1/2 marathons now since it is taxing on a 70 year old body. Still sprite and moving fast with a type A personality.

Hello all! I'm game for any challege. i've had my Garmin vivofit 3 for about a month (since right after Thanksgiving I think) or so, but I've been super busy with college finals and holiday stuff so I've mainly just been challenging myself. There are days when I've literally only gotten a few hundred steps. My worst was under 100. I literally sat in bed the entire day typing a paper for my English class. Now I am ready to get myself in gear! My user name on Garmin is the same as my SP username except the first letter of Garmin is capitalized (not sure it's case sensitive, but just in case): Yiskamiryam

I have the STRENGTH
to SUCCEED!

I'm a leader of the Sparkpeople garmin group. I had issues with my Garmin. Kept disconnecting, connecting. I got frustrated took a break. My husband finally fixed it and I made Terri a letter. I *WANT* to be a regular poster/contributor but I have to figure out this consistency thing.

Anyone who wants to connect, run challenges. This is my name there too.

Slenderella you can leave or switch your challenge.



There is a little circle in the upper right hand corner. Click on it and it will give you the option to leave the challenge or switch challenges. I've done it once when I was frustrated with a challenge and numbers that didn't make sense.

Garmin Connect has moved me to the 200,000 steps per week challenge. I really think 175,000/25,000 average daily is enough! Does anyone know how I would get back to the challenge I want? Thanks.

cant figure it out at all but I really hate the Garmin program. Every time I go to sync I usually have to try it 2 or 3 times. I sync to my computer because I dont have a smart phone or Ipad.
Technology is not always so great but I'm patient usually

I will get into next week's challenge if I'm lucky enough for the challenge invite to go through next time.

You're in the "waiting for response" list, so it is added. Can you check on the Garmin Connect page on the computer if it isn't showing up on your phone/watch for some reason. I can't "add" you again since it says you are invited.

I had so many problems with my Garmin today that I had to remove the program and reinstall it several times tonight before I got it to work properly. Here's hoping it will work well from here on in.
After being on vacation without it for a week, it just wasn't giving accurate information. Resetting it didn't help and I had to do a complete restore.

Please add me to next week's walking challenge when it begins. All the best to those who are in this week's challenge.

Thanks, Tami. I'll do that.

Yes, I've been wearing both watches when I have intervals with time goals or I'm coaching someone in order to have more accurate feedback for them.

That does seem like a wild discrepancy. I'd think the forerunner is closer to accurate. Are you using the two watches at the same time for comparison? I'd contact Garmin to see if they have a reason for such a wild difference in numbers, and maybe to replace the newer watch if it is inaccurate.

I got lots of steps today with a Galloway group run of 9.5 miles and a Galloway coaching run of 3.1. My Forerunner 10 counted it all as 12.86 miles. With a little walking warm up, and some zig-zagging that might be accurate. The Vivosmart HR recorded over 16 miles for that workout. I figured it might be +/- 10%, but that discrepancy seems excessive. Any suggestions?

I can see Tami (isn't that you?) and her activities in Garmin Connect, but I don't see your invite. Where do I look?

Edit: I had an e mail to connect. Is that it?
