Project description

Download Garmin Connect Data

Travis CI Build Status

This software downloads TCX files and accompanying activity metadata files from the Garmin Connect website. Since Garmin has discontinued its API to download your data this software was written to take its place. It is the opinion of the author that this data generated by the athlete should be accessible via an automated method and not constrained to a Web GUI interface.

Features:

  • Download Garmin activity data.
  • Track data in an SQLite database (avoid re-downloading).
  • Sync duration statistics with GoogleSheets.
  • Print basic information and statistics on previous activities.
  • Convenient importing in your favorite analysis tool (i.e. GoldenCheetah).

Obtaining

The easist way to install the command line program is via the pip installer:

pip install zensols.garmdown

Binaries are also available on pypi.

Data Life Cycle

  1. Download activities. These are independent blocks of data that provide information used to later download the respective TCX file.
  2. Download the TCX file. The TCX file has all the information needed by workout analysis applications like GoldenCheetah.
  3. Import TCX file. This step simply copies downloaded files to a directory that's easy to access by the workout analysis application.
  4. Ingest TCX files. Import all files in the import folder to your data workout analysis application. After this step you delete the folder as subsequent invocations of step 3 will regenerate it.
  5. Backup the activities database. In the rare case the binary database file (see below) might be corrupted, a backup is made every N days (where N is specified in a configuration file).

All state between all of these steps are recorded in an SQLite database, which is a binary file stored on the file system. If this doesn't make sense to you, it means that you shouldn't need to install anything special and it lives on your disk.

History

The activity download module was inspired by Shannon's original project, which was used to navigate the convoluted Garmin client API.

Usage

The easiest way to use the program is to use the sync action repeatedly until the program doesn't do anything, example:

$ garmdown sync

This invokes all data life cycle steps, meaning it imports activities in to the database, downloads the TCX files and creates a handy import directory (by default in your desktop directory ~/Desktop/to-import).
