There are two ways to log Workouts in MySwimPro with your Garmin watch. You can be guided through Workouts with the MySwimPro Connect IQ app, or just track your Swims using the Garmin Sync feature! Both features are available on iOS & Android.

iOS

Setting Up Garmin Sync

Garmin Sync is the best way to automatically log Garmin Workouts to MySwimPro. After setting it up, all Workouts logged with your Garmin watch will appear in MySwimPro!

To set up Garmin Sync:

  1. Make sure you have bluetooth enabled on your phone and the Garmin watch

  2. In the MySwimPro app, go to Settings > Account Settings

  3. Toggle Garmin Sync

  4. A web page will appear and prompt you to authorize MySwimPro to read your Garmin workout information. Sign in to your Garmin account and tap Allow.

  5. Reopen the MySwimPro app if not automatically directed. The next time you swim with your Garmin device and sync with Garmin Connect, your Swims should log to the MySwimPro app. You'll be able to see your Garmin swims in the MySwimPro feed.

Setting Up The Garmin Connect IQ App

To get started:

  1. Install the MySwimPro app on your Garmin watch from the Garmin Connect IQ Store.

  2. In the MySwimPro app, head to Settings > Account Settings > Add Garmin Connect IQ Device

  3. A pop-up will prompt you to choose the Garmin device you'd like to connect. Select the device and choose "Pair".

  4. Reopen the MySwimPro watch app if it is not already open.

You're all set! Follow instructions here to use the app.

Loading A Guided Workout

On your phone, you can write your own Custom Workout or select a premade workout from a Training Plan, Workout of the Day, or the Workout Library.

To load a Workout onto your watch:

  1. Open the MySwimPro app on your watch

  2. Select Load Workout. The watch will prompt you to open a Workout on your phone

  3. In the MySwimPro phone app, open the Workout you'd like to load onto your Garmin watch

  4. The Workout will appear on your watch (if it does not appear, try pressing the back button and selecting Load Workout again). Once the Workout has loaded onto your watch, you can exit out of the Workout on your phone.

  5. Select Start. There will be a short countdown and then the watch will start running through the Workout.

  6. Your watch will guide you Set-by-Set and record your analytics as you swim. To pause or skip to the next rep, click the menu button to open the menu. This may vary depending on the Garmin model you own.

  7. After you finish the Workout, there will be an option to Save or Discard the Workout. Select Save to automatically log the Workout to the MySwimPro app.

  8. Open MySwimPro on your phone to see your performance!

Navigating A Guided Workout

  • During a Guided Workout on your Garmin Watch the watch displays the current Set info, the current and total time for the Set, and the current and total repetitions.

    Press any button to access the Workout menu. From the menu, you can:

    • Pause - Workout is paused while in the menu

    • Resume - resumes the Workout and tracking

    • Next Rep - end current rep and begins the next rep or Set in the Workout

    • Prev Pre - goes back and restarts the most recent rep or Set

    • End Workout - Ends the current Workout with the option to save or discard

  2. Choose your Preferred Pool Distance (skip this step if open water)

  3. Swim your Workout

  4. Save activity

Once your watch has re-synced with your phone, your Workout will automatically transfer to your Feed in MySwimPro. From there, you can view your Workout data!
