Garmin accepting 3rd apps now?

YouTube clip here from GP lama. Garmin Training Effect: Now Calculated Directly From 3rd Parties (Zwift/TrainerRoad/etc) - YouTube

Reporting garmin now accepts 3rd party data, hopefully now when I complete a xert workout, I should be able have that data on garmin connect, along with sleep, step, stress and nutrition. Allowing for much bigger picture.

Is this right, or am I getting over excited?


You’re getting over excited. They’ve already been accepting 3rd party data uploaded directly from a SELECT few services. That list hasn’t changed in ages, and they don’t seem to be accepting any new ones.

What the video was referring to is just that for those select few services training effect is now being calculated Garmin Connect side. No change to the services that can actually upload.
