How to set a goal on Garmin Connect

The motivation for any physical activity almost always has a goal at the end of it. From achieving Olympic gold for the elite athletes to losing a bit of weight for those getting started, there will always be an end target.

If you are using a Garmin device – which many more now are with the rise of fitness trackers such as the Garmin Vicosmart – then you will be able to track your health and activity on your device and Garmin Connect. This can easily be done by setting up a goal or target for yourself to aim towards on Garmin’s online website, Garmin Connect.

What are Goals?

Goals are targets you set to help you achieve a short term objective. For example, if you set a target to run for 10 hours over the next week, your Garmin device will keep track of how much you actually ran. And you can see your performance against your goal on Garmin Connect or your Garmin device.

There are different ways in which you can access the goals on Garmin Connect. On the new modern version, there are individual widgets which are on your dashboard. On the preset layout, there will be the ‘Goal’ widget already available. If you have removed this at any point, the page where your goals can be seen, past and present, can be found on the sidebar (where you can also add this widget back to your dashboard).

  3. Fill in the options to meet your needs on whether you want to hit a certain number of miles for that month or just try and go out 3 times per week. Once these have been filled in, press save. Available goal types: Time, Distance, Calories, Frequency

  4. Once the goal has been created, you can view it in the ‘Active Goals’ section on the same page or on the Goals widget on he dashboard. This new goal which has been created won’t always show on the widget if a previous goal is still showing. Therefore, by clicking on the setting button on the top right of the widget you can choose to ‘Switch Goal’ to any of your current active goals.

Hopefully this has been useful and you can be successful in creating and hitting your goals.

  1. How do we edit end date of each goal. Currently it auto set to the distance of that activity. For instance i have a virtual run for 300km for 6mth period , instead it sets to a yr period.
    Hope you can assist me on this.

    • On the top right hand corner of the Goal ‘widget’ on the dashboard there is a settings wheel option. Click on this which will give a drop down menu; from here there is a ‘Edit Goal’ option which will take you to a page to edit the Goal parameters. I hope this helps you.

  2. OK then, i have been setting training time goals for each week, eg 5 hours, 6 hours etc. all working until i tried setting a 3.5 hour (or 6.5 hour goal) are we limited to whole hours? is there a way to set increments of an hour? ive tried entering (and saving) 3.5 hours, but it reverts to 3. ive tried 3:30 but the colon wont appear in the field. ideas please?

  3. Think the one drawback with this feature, and to my mind it is a big one, is that you cannot view your goals within the Garmin Connect app. This forces you to use the website version to see your progress. To me this defeats the purpose of the goals panel because of the inconvenience of having to find a laptop to see how you’re doing.
