Garmin: I was not a ‘frequent runner’
In 2017, the Garmin GPS unit was one of the best selling products on the market.
Since then, it has been plagued with several software updates that have made it harder to keep track of running distances, and its app is constantly struggling to adapt to the changing world of running.
Now, Garmin has unveiled an app that will help people better understand the data and help them plan their workouts.
The new Garmin Running App is called Garmin Navigator and it is being launched today by the company to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
The app will be a collaboration between the company and Garmin, and will help users track distance, calories burned, time to completion, and more.
While Garmin isn’t going to be releasing an official app for its GPS units, the company has confirmed that it is working on one.
“In addition to the Garmin Navigators new Garmin Navigatons data platform, we are working to bring a new, Garmin-exclusive GPS running experience to the masses,” a spokesperson for the company said.
“This new Garmin running experience will be optimized for the modern day user, with GPS running performance in mind.”
As part of this effort, Garmin is launching a special launch event, where it is inviting Garmin owners to take part in a beta version of the new Garmin app, which is set to launch in early 2018.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Garmin to bring our users the best running experience available in the marketplace, and we can’t wait to see what we can do with the new app,” said Rob Sperry, chief marketing officer for Garmin, in a statement.
