Garmin Frequently asked Sync/Offload Questions
What do you mean by “syncing my data”?
All of your activity data is held within the Garmin device and can be stored here for up to 28 days. In order to see your data within actilife, you need to “sync / offload” this data. This means you are transferring your activity data from your device to a platform such as actilife. You, nor the Coach, can see your activity data until you sync.
How do I sync my Garmin device to the actilife platform?
The actilife platforms receives data when you sync your Garmin device via the Garmin Connect Mobile on your smart phone OR when you walk within a 10 metre range of a designated vivohub / sync hub.
Make sure you have Bluetooth turned on and internet connection. Open the Garmin Connect app and tap your device 2-3 times to illuminate the green lights and pull down the screen to refresh. This initiates the device to offload its data.
How long does it take to sync my data to the actilife platform?
Typically, once you have synced your data, your activity data should appear in the actilife dashboard within 1-2 minutes.
I have synced my data but it still hasn’t appeared in my actilife platform?
If using the Garmin Connect app, open the app and check the time of “last sync”. This should reflect the same time when you tried to offload your data.
If this doesn't show the most recent time, then sync your Garmin device again. If using your mobile, open the Garmin Connect app, tap the Garmin Vivoki gently 2-3 times and then pull down the STEPS screen (as shown left) to refresh.
Time of last sync should be as current as possible
If your data still doesn’t appear after 1-2 minutes, go to your actilife dashboard and select the Garmin logo.
If no logo appears on your actilife dashboard, then your Garmin device may not be connected to the actilife platform. Please contact your provider for more information.
Check that “connected” appears on the screen and then select “refresh” to manually pull your data from Garmin. Check your actilife dashboard in 1-2 minutes.
How long do I need to be within range of the Vivohub (sync hub) to offload my data?
Sync times vary depending on the strength of the internet connection and how many days of data needs to be offloaded. Below are the average sync times for the Garmin Vivoki
Number of days since last offload
Average time required to be within range of the Vivohub/ sync hub
I can’t seem to offload/ sync my device?
Please check the following
- You have the most recent software installed on your mobile. This can usually be checked under “settings” on your mobile device.
- You have the most recent software updates for Garmin Connect installed. To check this, go to Google Play Store or App Store and select “updates”. If an update is required from Garmin, then please select.
- You have Bluetooth switched on and have internet connection to your mobile device. Data cannot be offloaded without this.
