In my previous post I outlined how I’m using a Garmin Forerunner 245 and an Apple Watch with relevant data saved into Apple Health. In one section I mentioned that I’ve chosen to manually add data to Apple Health for 3 data points because Garmin sucks at syncing data reliably to Apple Health. In this post, I want to go into that detail a little more.
Prerequisites to setup Apple Health
Total Distance: 226.7 miles (+27.5 miles) Total Time: 31:15:56 (8:17/mile average) After the hip injury discomfort in July I fell off of 2000 mile pace for the year. I righted the ship in August and was able to blow past the pace rabbit after a monster September.
I topped 200 miles in the month for only the 4th time. A last day 10+ miler put me over my previous best of 225.
I’ve been an exclusive Apple Watch and Apple Health user for the last 2 years. Though recently I moved to a dual-watch setup between the Apple Watch and a Garmin Forerunner 245. In this post I’ll go through why I made this change. I’ll also cover things to consider with your Apple Health data.
I love Apple Health. Its function as a data repository for your apps and devices is simplicity at its finest.
