January 2023 - A new year with new badges and staged challenges!


Join the January challenges now in Garmin Connect.

We got the new staged challenges for 2023. Nothing new about them. Same as last year.
The Tour challenges continue with yet another 400 km per month.
What is more interesting are the new badges for events in Garmin Connect and three challenges in the Tacx app.

Three month challenges - Stage 1

The challenges are exactly the same as in 2022 so no surprises there.

  2. It looks like the January badges are already online and can be connected in the app, but I don't see the new ones related to events in Garmin Connect yet.

  4. Hallo Andy, sind die Abzeichen für den 21.1 und 22.1 schon sichtbar? Chinesisches Neujahr und Jahr des Hasen. Die anderen 2 neuen sind ja glaube Standard, Datum festlegen und Mission erfüllt

    1. Nothing yet. Badges are usually released in the evening (for Europeans) and not on the weekends. I usually check every morning.

  5. Hi, I use Connect in a language other than English and the name of the challenge "January Tour" is not translated into my native language? Do you have the same?

    1. I use English. If it is a translation error you should report it to Garmin Support.

    2. Thank you. Yes, I contacted them and let them know some time ago that there is such an error according to me. But nothing has changed.

  6. Does anyone know how to earn the Mission Accomplished badge? I created a calendar event and completed it, but no badge...

    1. View the event and connect the activity to get the badge.

  7. Hallo Andy, sind die Abzeichen für Februar schon frei, bzw dürfte ja sicherlich bestimmt wieder das gleiche Programm sein wie der Januar oder gibt's da wieder etwas neues. Garmin ist doch bestimmt für Überraschungen gut.

    1. The February challenges are not known yet. I believe they will come later today.

  8. We want the February badges! Que fait Garmin ! Plus sérieusement, so many thanks Andy, you're doing such an amayzing job here! I discovered the blog few weeks ago and you're a damn great programmer. Looks like you're a damn great human being too :). Danke beaucoup

  10. Zumindest diese 2 Valentinstag Abzeichen sind für Februar plötzlich weg, gibt's wohl auch neue mit dem Jahr 2023, na dann lassen wir uns überraschen was für Aufgaben morgen früh erscheinen.

    1. Still no news. The Valentine's badges have been removed and we will likely see a Valentines 2023 badge.

      Delete
  11. Heute immer noch keine Angaben welche Challenge kommen wird, da wird das Plakate drucken schwer, wenn die sich soviel Zeit lassen.

  12. Feb challenges are up in Connect in the UK. No Valentines badges as yet. Usual sort of thing but cycling tour only gets 1point and it is the hardest cycling challenge.
