Download on Garmin watches

Running.COACH is constantly developing. All owners of a Garmin watch can now profit from a direct download of our trainings onto their watch. 

Up to know, the trainings could be transferred from the watches to running.COACH. This data is important for the analysis of the trainings done by running.COACH (dynamic updates). You can now even transfer planned sessions in the future directly to your watch by only a few clicks. You can find the download button in the detailed view of the training.

Tie your shoes, press the start button and go

You can see the pace and distance settings directly on your watch. If you are too fast or too slow, the watch tells you. The watch even lets you know when the interval is finished.
