Expanded functionality adds personalised coaching and motivational feedback

Staying fit and healthy, and maintaining motivation, can be challenging at this time of year. Garmin’s newly launched Connect Insights, a new feature for its Android and iOS apps, will display personalised coaching feedback and insights based on the data you upload. It reckons this will help you achieve your fitness goals.


“We’re excited to introduce Garmin Connect Insights to support, motivate, and connect with our users more than ever,” says Andrew Silver, EMEA Product Manager Fitness. “Insights enhances users’ experience tracking and analysing data with personalised recommendations and motivation specifically for them.”

The Insights are personalised recommendations based on data from activities uploaded to Garmin Connect. At launch the new functionality will include sleep analysis and goal prediction, predicted step total (aimed at people using its fitness trackers) and daily goals.

There will also be smart coaching and videos to offer encouragement, and to boost flagging motivation levels, milestones and even “virtual high-fives”.

Insights will be available on the Connect app, free of charge, this month. There will be more features throughout the year.

He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes
