Garmin 310XT sync w/ Linux
Thanks to pyusb, Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor and GcpUploader, I am finally able to sync my Garmin 310XT watch with Garmin connect on my Linux box.
Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor downloads all the activity files from the watch, then calls callback scripts under $XDG_CONFIG_HOME(usually ~/.config)/garmin-extractor/scripts. In this case, it calls a script that uses gcpuploader to upload to Garmin Connect.
Don’t be fooled by the name, Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor actually supports a lot of Garmin devices that use ANT+:
- Garmin Forerunner 60
- Garmin Forerunner 405CX
- Garmin Forerunner 310XT
- Garmin Forerunner 610
- Garmin Forerunner 910XT
- Garmin FR70
- Garmin Swim
Here is what I did (on Archlinux, other distro should be similar):
sudo pacman -S python2-pip #install pip for python2 sudo pip2 install pyusb --pre #need version newer than 1.0a2 sudo pip2 install GcpUploader #install GcpUploader git clone [email protected]:Tigge/Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor.git cd Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor # since we run as root, so the config needs to be under /root sudo cp scripts/40-upload_to_garmin_connect.py /root/.config/garmin-extractor/scripts sudo chmod a+x /root/.config/garmin-extractor/scripts/40-upload_to_garmin_connect.py
Also needs to change the path to gupload in the script:
# CHANGE ME: gupload = "/usr/bin/gupload.py"
Add garmin connect credentials in /root/.guploadrc
[Credentials] username=yourgarminuser password=yourgarminpass
Finally, run garmin.py to sync!
sudo python2 garmin.py
Bonus: I also find trapiriik.com can sync between Garmin connect, Runkeeper, Strava, endomondo activities. One button push, sync all of them. Or for $2 a year, it can auto sync between accounts. Pretty good deal 🙂
