Garmin Fit also maps and automatically uploads workouts to Garmin Connect. Garmin also introduces its ANT+ adapter for iPhone allowing users to use their Garmin ANT+ accessories with their iPhone.

“Garmin Fit is the ideal solution for users who are new to the fitness tracking landscape and for those looking to stay totally connected,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “To be able to utilize Garmin’s powerful fitness accessories with the same device that plays music, makes calls and uploads workouts automatically to share and analyse, makes Garmin Fit a must have app.”

Whether running on a local trail, cycling around the neighbourhood or traveling for business Garmin Fit makes it easier than ever to see how far, how fast and where users have been. Garmin Fit ensures users will never be stuck without a way to track their workouts even when they forget to charge their Forerunner GPS enabled watch or fail to pack it for a trip.

With the tap of a button Garmin Fit displays time, distance, pace and calories and even allows users to control their music from within the app. Never miss that important call – during a workout users will also be able to view and answer incoming calls and text messages without interrupting Garmin Fit.
