July 2020 Badge Challenges

The Badge Challenges for July are almost identical to the ones in June. I was hoping for some new stuff and not just a repetition. They switched out the 40 km biking and added two new: 4 hours of biking and 4 hours of walking (none must be done in single activity). Note that you can't join them just yet, but they will for sure be available July 1. July 1-31: Run 100 miles 3-5: Walk 3 miles in a single activity (4.83 km) 6-12: Bike 100 km (62.1 miles) in 7 days 10-12: Run 10 km in a single activity 13-26: Record 150.000 steps in 14 days 24-26: 40 km of cycling in a single activity 25-31: 4 Hours of Cycling 25-31: 4 Hours of Walking Update 2020-07-08 Garmin is slowly rolling out the badges one at a time so you will have to check the challenges page before the starting dates for each challenge to join all challenges.

20 new badges - cycling, treadmill, yoga, breathwork, walking and strength

Garmin just added twenty new badges! All are available in Garmin Connect now. I will not add all images to this post. Just the Zen Master 5 which you will be awarded with after 200 yoga activities. There are two new for indoor cycling probably due to Corona and that they now own Tacx. Bike for 4 hours and do a 50 miles ride on your trainer which is a nice addition to the previous 10 miles, 20 miles and 50 km indoor cycling badges. I also discovered that they fixed the "problem" with that you could get all those indoor cycling badges if you just did a 50 km ride. Now these badges work as they should. The big news is that they added badges for completing an activity a specific number of times.To get the last badge you have to do the activity 100-200 times. There is no time limit so no need to stress. The activity types are: Treadmill, yoga, breathwork, walking and strength training.

Limited time badges between start and end date are now marked with a green icon

Badges that got a limited time are now marked with a green clock icon if current time is between the start and end date. NOTE! A limitation is that the server time is used for the calculation. The server is using Swedish time zone which currently is Central European Summer Time (UTC+2) and in the winter it is Central European Time (UTC+1). Update 2020-06-01 If the start date is 7 days or less from the current time the clock icon will be orange. I changed the color to green for the badges that are up for grabs. Outdated badges will have the red color. Garmin Badge Database Garmin Connect Change country setting
