Suggested Configuration for Garmin

We recommend the below suggested configuration for Garmin users whereby only Garmin is used for tracking steps. (GoVida does have a built in steps aggregator enabling multiple devices to be used to track steps at the same time – although for Garmin we recommend just using Garmin for greater accuracy.)
