Synce to garmin watch

Hi all,

I finished my first Zwift session tonight since receiving my Garmin Epix. I didn’t connect my watch to the turbo trainer but Zwift is connected to Garmin Connect, so the activity shows up in the Garmin Connect application but not on my watch.

Any ideas how I can sync from the app to my watch?

I don’t think you can. It’s normal to sync your activities from your watch to Garmin Connect, not the other way round.

I have a Garmin Fenix 7. Stats from activities I complete on Zwift which are synced to Garmin Connects are available to view in the “Last Activity” widget on my watch

Where are you expecting to see data on you phone? Garmin Connect doesn’t actually store any data on your phone, it’s all on Garmin servers.

That’s not working for me Kev. I don’t get the activty that has been synced to the connect app from Zwift to my phone.

I’m not sure I’m following you on this one. If you are seeing the Zwift activity on ‘Garmin Connect’, where aren’t you seeing it in your phone? The Garmin Connect web app and the Garmin Connect mobile app should be showing the same activities, provided you are logged in to the same account.

Is it somehow possible he has two accounts and the watch is using a different account / isn’t actually sync’d to whatever @Jamie_Hancock 's phone is using?

That’s all I can think.

I can open up my Companion app after a ride and I’ll see everything; both my Garmin recorded “ride”, and the individual Zwift rides; they all show up as green blocks with the route shape that I rode.

One thing I don’t see that Kev mentioned though is the ability to see Zwift rides on my watch; I only see the ones I record (this is on my Fenix 5s). Not that I care; but an interesting note.

I’ve edited the post because I wrote it incorrectly, apologies for that. It should make more sense now.
