Introducing Garmin Connect™ Insights – smart coaching from Garmin®


We’re excited to today announce Garmin Connect Insights, smart wellness insights to help Garmin Connect users beat yesterday and achieve their goals. Leveraging millions of hours of sleep and billions of steps logged every day, Garmin Connect Insights provide cues to help users reach health and wellness goals and shout-outs when milestones have been met. The smart insights also provide relevant healthy tips from experts and show users how they are doing in comparison to people like them for extra motivation. Garmin Connect Insights is being announced in conjunction with the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and will be showcased at the Garmin booth, #35811.

“We’re excited to introduce Garmin Connect Insights to support, motivate, and connect with our users more than ever,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Insights enhances users’ experience tracking and analyzing data with personalized recommendations and motivation specifically for them.”


Garmin Connect Insights’ personalized recommendations are pushed to users based on their Garmin Connect data. Wellness insights at launch include sleep analysis and goal prediction, which features analysis of users’ daily step trends, predicted step total and cues reminding them to get up and move if they aren’t on track to meet their daily step goal. Insights also features suggested supporting videos or news articles to provide users with smart coaching, and congratulatory messages when milestones are reached, providing a virtual high-five to users for extra encouragement to beat yesterday in their pursuit of fitness goals. Utilizing data collected from the Garmin Connect community for over a decade, Insights is able to show users how their data stacks up against the average person their age and gender. At launch this will include benchmarks for step totals with more comparisons coming soon.


Garmin Connect Insights will be available in January with additional Insight wellness features rolling out through 2016.
