Change country setting


  1. There seems to be some problem with the calendar. I added both in April and I see all the April events, but even now, at least 24 hours after you posted about the May badges I still don't see any of the May events in Google Calendar

    1. May are not in the database yet. Garmin need to publish them first. My post is just a sneak peek of what to come. I think they will go live today.

    2. They are now live. Note that you must join the challenges and then upload your data to my site before you will get your challenges in the calendar.

  2. Thanks Andy. Are you aware of any free methods of changing your file's device to be these Star Wars themed watches?

    I tried using the methods mentioned on Reddit e.g. gotoes but you need to pay. Also noticed your page about this last year

    Is this still the only way other than buying these watches still?


    1. You can try the device changer at Fitfiletools
      It is just $10 for Gotoes.
      I haven't tested doing this in a long time. Maybe I should test it again and write a new post about it with all now available options.

    2. Fitfiletools now works for these watches

    3. Thanks Andy and dmmac. Worked a treat

  3. Ho un problema con le sfide di maggio non mi da la sfida di forza ma due sfide identiche di 20 attività

    1. Use the web and see what it looks like there. If it looks ok in the web then everything is ok and the app will sort it self out eventually.

    2. Si sul web è tutto in ordine sarà un problema dell'appartamento che risolveranno grazie andy

  4. Bonjour ! Is there a way to know how many yoga or walking activities we did?

    1. Yes. Use the Progress Summary Report in Garmin Connect Web:
      Select start date 2020-04-28 (start date for those badges) and the activity type you want to see the count for.

    2. I set a goal for the Zen master yoga badge and then I can see the progress

    3. Using goals are great, but the duration can only be 1 year at most so it can only count the activities for one year back in time. The badges started 2020-04-28 which is over 3 years ago.
      I use goals but you must use the Progress Summary report to see all activities from the start date. Then create a goal starting from that count. That is how I do it.

  5. I finished the May challenge for the vivofit jr, but when I go to redeem the reward, the discount isn't being applied.

    1. Hi e7andy, where did you find the code? I can't see it in the app nor online. It just mentions that the discount will be automatically activated, but it doesn't for me, similar like Becky's case.

    2. Use Garmin Connect Web. Go to the challenge:
      Click the button "Get your reward". You will end up on a Garmin page. Look in the URL. The last parameter (named pc) is the code that you can enter at discount.

    3. Found it! Thanks a lot! 😍
