YOUR PRIVACY MATTERS TO GARMIN

Our goal is to make sure you know how we collect, use, share and store your personal data when you use the Garmin Dive mobile app and compatible Garmin devices.

What Does Garmin Collect?

The Garmin Dive app was created to help you track your dives and improve your diving experiences. We ask you for dive data — such as dive type, water type and temperature, depth, heart rate, pulse oximetry, ascent and descent time, and more — to help you get the most out of your dives and provide you with personalized insights and stats.

Account Information

We collect a name and email address when you create a Garmin account. The name you associate with your account doesn’t even have to be your full name. It could just be your first name or a nickname. We use it personalize your experience and help you interact with the dive community. We collect your email address so you can actually sign in to your account and get all the helpful dive data you’ve built up.

Device Information

When you add a Garmin device to your Garmin account, we ask for your preferred display settings and dive preferences — such as your favorite dive spots — so you can have the experience you want.

Device Sync Data

When you sync your device, we collect data such as your IP address, sync time and date, and battery level to help identify and resolve syncing issues and to provide better customer support. We also collect usage and trend data to help us improve our features and apps.

Contact Information

We know you want to stay off the grid, but we may collect things such as your name, email address and phone number during support calls to ensure you get the help you need.

Location-based Services

GPS services you use on your device during a dive — such as entry and exit points and surface interval — require that Garmin collect your location at that time. When you sync dive activities containing GPS data to the app, you have control over who sees them.

Cookies

We use cookies and other technologies on our websites and apps to help us improve customer experiences.

Do You Have to Upload Dive Activity Information to Garmin?

Nope. You can use your device for all your dives without uploading dive data from your device to the app. However, you won’t be able to use some Garmin Dive features such as interacting with the dive community or getting dive insights and trends.

Why Does Garmin Ask for Your Personal Data?

From providing product support to analyzing your dive performance, the information we ask for is used to improve your Garmin Dive experiences.

To Help You Track and Analyze Your Dives

If you choose to upload dive data from your Garmin device to the Garmin Dive app, we collect recorded data from those activities so you can log your dives and get dive analysis information. If you want to, you can even share your data with other divers in the dive community. Plus, you can withdraw your consent and delete activities at any time.

If you’re opted in to product improvement, we internally process dive data to help us improve our products and services. Again, you can withdraw your consent at any time.

To Contact You

We use your contact information to send you notifications and, if you opt in, to inform you about new products, apps and features.

Does Garmin Sell Your Personal Data?

No! We don’t sell your data to anyone. And we only share it with others in specific situations.
