Garmin fitness devices are now available for use with corporate wellness programs through the use of the Garmin Connect API. This allows corporate wellness programs to engage employees who are already using Garmin fitness devices, because now they can validate their activities through the free online community, Garmin Connect— where users have logged over 4 billion miles to date.

"Integrating with the Garmin Connect API was an essential part of our fitness device integration strategy,” said Russell Benaroya, EveryMove CEO. “Garmin Connect was one of the most requested services by our users and Garmin has been a great partner to work with."

Garmin has been providing fitness monitoring devices for over a decade, and today, offers a broad range of fitness monitors for active people. With the Garmin Connect API, these trusted products can be used within a company’s corporate wellness program, providing motivation for the efforts of participants.

Garmin users have access to Garmin Connect™, a free online community where members can review their workouts, share activities, consult training plans and explore new places to run or ride.

Wellness members, in participating plans, can choose to share their fitness data from Connect with their wellness program — a simple, one-time process. Then, every time a user uploads an activity from their device, participating wellness companies automatically receive a summary of the workout, providing objective information to recognize the member's active lifestyle.

“It’s been great working with the Garmin team to create a seamless experience for our members that provides them with all the benefits of Garmin Connect and Vitality incentives in recognition of their efforts,” said Stephen Mitchley, The Vitality Group Chief Operating Officer.

Today, program participants are able to share fitness data from a growing list of wellness companies, including EveryMove, Redbrick Health and The Vitality Group.
