Smartphone Sync (single-sync) with Fitrockr Hub app

Setup - Join-Code

Pre-requisite to sync with the Fitrockr Hub app is a Fitrockr user account. There are two options to create a user account:

(A) Set up user account beforehand by administrator

Create a user account and generate the personal join-code of the user that should be connected with the Garmin device. See (A) in below screenshot.

B) Set up account by user during Garmin device pairing

Generate the “Create by Join-Code” generic join-code. When this generic join-code is used, user will be asked to create an account while pairing the Garmin device with the smartphone. See (B) in below screenshot.

Share join-code with the user to connect smartphone with Garmin device.
