For this method, you'll need to have a Garmin Connect account as well as both Garmin Express and Garmin Communicator Plug-In installed on your computer before beginning the steps below. The downloadable files for Express and Communicator can be found here.
1. On your web browser, open https://www.swim.com/devices.
2. Choose the Garmin Connect method by clicking on the blue "connect" button.
3. A new window will pop up instructing you to put in your Garmin Connect credentials.
4. Once you've put in your credentials, you will get confirmation that you're connected. You can now use either the Garmin Express software on your computer or the Garmin Connect app on your phone to sync workouts to Garmin's database. Upon upload to Garmin, the workouts should also appear on your Swim.com account within moments*.
*We have had some users experience delays of up to 72 hours for workouts to appear on Swim.com after uploading to Garmin. Typically this happens after linking a Garmin Connect and Swim.com account for the first time. This is due to the load placed on Garmin servers and is unfortunately out of our control. If a week goes by and your workouts are still not appearing, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your first workout from Garmin populates on Swim.com, all subsequent workouts uploaded should appear almost instantaneously on both sites.
**NOTE** Upon linking your Garmin Connect and Swim.com accounts, Garmin will send only the last 30 days of workouts that were previously recorded on your Garmin Connect account to your Swim.com workout log.
