Garmin Integration
With Terra's Garmin web API integration, you will enable your Garmin users to sync fitness data with your app. The Terra Garmin API Integration will send detailed fitness data captured by user's Garmin smartwatches, such as intra-workout heart rate, distance covered, detailed speed throughout a user's workout, and more. You will also receive data pushed to your app throughout the day, whenever new data is available, with health metrics like steps, heart rate, and sleep information. This can include the duration spent in each sleep stage, and even detailed hypnogram information throughout the night.

Data Format

All data is sent to your webhook in JSON format in the form of 5 different types of payloads: Activity, Body, Daily, Menstruation, Sleep. Depending on your needs, you may select a subset of the aforementioned, and request less data from your users.

Examples of data payloads can be found here. If you would only like to receive specific fields out of the ones available, you may also select only the ones relevant to your needs and omit the rest. The following is an example of the data payload you may expect from an activity coming from Terra.

Receiving data for your Garmin integration - WEBHOOKS

Whenever data become available from a Garmin device, they will be streamed to you, via our webhooks. When setting up your Terra account, you will be prompted to provide a callback URL, to which Terra may send PUSH data using POST requests.

Your Garmin integration with Terra supports instant delivery of data without needing to periodically request it yourself. Garmin notifies Terra whenever new data is available, following which we POST the normalized data to your webhook.

Historical data from HTTP requests

You may also use HTTP requests with your Garmin integration in case you wish to request historical data or data over extended periods of time.

Most HTTP endpoints can take additional parameters start_date and end_date which allow you to request data over a specific period for the given user.
