Youll have to do two things before Garmin Connect will fully connect your computer to your watch, at least that was my experience.
1. Plug the watch into the computer, follow onscreen instructions. It should have you dload and install a package from Garmin’s website and open a little dialogue box showing what watch you have and that it’s plugged into your computer.
2. This is the one I missed the first time. Get Garmin Connect Device plugin for your browser. I couldn’t send workouts to my profile until I got this.Although I could register workouts.
Step 3 would involve connecting your phone to your watch, but the booklet that comes with the watch gets that pretty clear.
Let me know if this helps.
Ps. You should follow me!
