How Do I Enable or Disable Sharing With Apple Health?

Official Garmin docs: 🔗 https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=lK5FPB9iPF5PXFkIpFlFPA

To enable or disable sharing data from Garmin Connect to Apple Health, follow the instructions below.

  1. Open the Apple Health app.

  2. Select Summary (bottom left).

  3. Select your Profile Picture (top right).

  4. Select Apps under Privacy.

  5. Select the Connect app.

  6. Toggle Categories on or off.

Once sharing is enabled, the Health app will only display previously recorded data from up to two weeks prior to the sharing being enabled.

Setting Garmin Connect and Apple Health to communicate is not very difficult. The steps are as follows.

  1. Open up the Apple Health app and navigate to settings

  2. Choose Apps

  3. Select Garmin Connect

    You’ll recognise it by the Garmin logo next to it.

  4. Follow the instructions to establish a link

    You’ll be asked to approve the connection.

  5. The Apple Health app allows you to choose which data to sync

  6. You can check that you are connected in the Garmin app

    Do this by opening settings in Garmin Connect, navigating to Connected Apps. You should see Apple Health in the list. Tap on this and you’ll see a confirmation that you are, indeed, connected.

A few important things should be mentioned at this stage.

The data sync is only in one direction. So Apple Health data cannot find its way into the Garmin app. Also, the type of data that can be synced from Garmin Connect depends on the device that you own. Not all options from the screenshot above may be available.

Finally, the sync is done whenever you connect your watch to the Garmin Connect app. The info will not be ported over if Garmin Connect is closed or in the background. The Garmin software needs to be open – and in the foreground – in order for the data sync to complete fully with Apple Health.
