OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, today announced updates to Garmin
Connect Mobile, an intuitive application where Garmin users can easily
find the information, data and features that are important to them. With
this update, the app now has a modern and colorful design, with a new
graphical interface that can be tailored to the user based on individual
interests. Whether users are training for a marathon, trying to fit in
more steps throughout the day or working to improve their golf game,
Garmin Connect Mobile will show the most important and relevant data to
meet their needs.
“We’re excited to bring a new look and feel to the Garmin Connect Mobile
app,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “The
new interface and customization options make it easy for users to focus
on their personal wellness goals and milestones, no matter what Garmin
device they’re using or where they are on their journey to a healthier
and more active lifestyle. With the revamped Garmin Connect Mobile,
results have never looked better.”
Helping keep users on track with their health and wellness goals daily
and over time, the new and easy-to-navigate look and feel will include

an upcoming race. At a glance, Garmin Connect Mobile users are able to
track their progress and get valuable insight into their activities with
metrics that matter.

users that average the same amount of weekly steps. With compatible
devices, users can wirelessly upload their data directly from the device
