  • This app is awesome and I know what I'm talking about. I was using wristbands by Xiaomi and Fitbit for almost a year each. The connection between the Mi band and my phone was horrible, but I loved its fitness program and managed to lose a few pounds. Fitbit was okay too, but it has erased all my data once. I bought Garmin vivosport a month ago and everything seemed to be okay until I lost one. Okay, I got a new one and now I want to ask how to download activities from Garmin Connect to watch? I know there should be an option for this but can't find it anywhere.
