  1. Garmin, We need to be able to earn badges from other Countries and/or new badges for certain Holidays that you do not have badges for. If you care and value your loyal Garmin customers. Make earning badges fun again. These badges are getting old and boring. 😥

    1. Change location in your Garmin account and you can get those badges.

    2. Thank You, E7andy! I meant to say for other Cities, not Countries. Still Garmin needs to up their game. When it comes to keeping clients/customers motivated. Garmin might lose clientele if this keeps up.

  2. Thnx for the monthly update. I always look forward to see what is up for the coming month

  3. More virtual runs would be appreciated in parallel with live events elsewhere! Also surprised no Olympics inspired events in gotta be more creative!

  4. How do you get the virtual climb badge? I tried stair climbing by climbing stairs in my house but it didn’t seem to work.

    1. The important thing is to use the right activity type. It must be logged as "Floor Climbing". You can change to that activity type afterwards in Garmin Connect.

  5. Not the most exciting list of challenges, but I’m really enjoying the consistency required for the strength and yoga five yours. Good to have the walking and cycling month targets back too.

    Here are some of my ideas I’d like to see:

    * Record X intensity minutes in August. (1500 maybe?)

    * Record X different kinds of activities in August (maybe 10?). Would encourage more variety of activities.

    * Get X hours of sleep in August (not too ridiculous, but maybe 7x31=227?) Would reward consistency.

    And perhaps building on the “beat yesterday” mantra, challenges where you have to beat your running/walking/cycling mileage from the previous month.

  6. I cannot see National Day of Singapore badge in available bedges. Is it OK? I set Singapore as my location.

    1. I don't think it is public yet. I don't see it either.

    2. Just did an activity in Singapore and no badge is showing up

    3. Same here - am in Singapore and no badge

    4. just did a little activity in London (country set to Singapore). Definitely no badge available and no badge awarded.

    5. Got an alert 10 minutes ago that the badge had been awarded. It’s now 11am the day after National Day here!

    6. Great! I got it now as well. I guess Garmin discovered that they had forgot to enable the badge and pushed it out a bit late.

  7. Hey guys, did somebody get Be a hero badge this year? I do not have this one and I have not got it yesterday. Country was Philippines and activities yoga, strength training and walking twice. Even when I change country to Philippines now and try to edit the activity, no badge. Pls help :)

    1. There are users that got the Be a Hero badge on August 30 so it should work.
      Did you get the Merdeka badge today?

    2. Yes, it seems it took longer than usual but I have checked it after few hours and I got the badge :)
