What to Expect After Syncing Your Garmin and TrainingPeaks Accounts

Syncing Workouts From Garmin Connect to TrainingPeaks

  • Previous workouts from Garmin Connect can take up to 24 hours to sync to TrainingPeaks. Do not disconnect your accounts during this time. You will not be able to attempt the history sync again and will then need to manually import all of your previous workouts.
  • If you do not see previous workouts, try syncing a new activity
  • The next time you upload a workout to Garmin Connect from your device, it will automatically sync to your TrainingPeaks account immediately.

Syncing Workouts From TrainingPeaks to Garmin Connect

  • Once you have linked your Garmin Connect and TrainingPeaks accounts, the next 15 days of eligible structured workouts on your TrainingPeaks calendar will immediately sync to your Garmin Connect calendar. 
  • A Garmin Connect icon on the workout Quick View in TrainingPeaks indicates that the workout has been synced to Garmin Connect.
  • The next time your Garmin device syncs with Garmin Connect, your TrainingPeaks workout will be sent to your device. Depending on the model of your Garmin device, your workouts will sync by Bluetooth, WiFi, LTE, USB cable, or ANT+ Stick.
