Forcing A Sync Between Garmin & An Android Phone — When ALL Else Fails.

by Anura Guruge


This is for ALL of you who have trouble getting
Garmin watches, e.g., Vivoactive or Vivofit, to Sync.

This is ONLY for Android phones & tablets.
(It might work with Apple but I have never owned an iPhone or iPad.)

Click to ENLARGE images.


Follow these steps.

Go to ‘SETTINGS‘ and click on ‘Apps & Notifications

Select ‘ALL apps’.

Go to the 3 Vertical Dots (menu/option) icon (Ξ) on the TOP RIGHT and click on that.

Click ‘Show System’ (Apps).


Scroll down to ‘Bluetooth Share’.


Click on ‘Force stop’.

Do NOT panic. Do not fear. It will automatically restart after the stop.

Get out of ‘Apps & Notification’.


Go to Garmin Connect and do a manual Sync.

This really should work.

Worked for me 100% of the time with Vivoactive HR and Vivoactive 3.

I now have a Google Pixel 2 and a Garmin Fenix 5. They sync together pretty well.
