Plug-and-play solution to collect any data recorded on a Garmin wearable. It cannot be easier.

Fitrockr is a plug-and-play research solution to collect any data recorded on a Garmin wearable. Participants simply wear the Garmin device and regularly synchronize it wirelessly through Bluetooth on their smartphone or via a central tablet. Large data amounts can also be uploaded via usb if needed.  

Step 1 - Select Garmin device most suitable for the study

Garmin offers a wide range of device models covering all possible research use cases. Decide based on supported data types, storage and battery duration. We help you to find the most suitable device whether you purchase through us or directly at Garmin. 

Fitrockr is a corporate solution partner of Garmin since 2018. Fitrockr is one of the Garmin deepest integrated solutions on the market.

Step 2 - Set data sampling rate

Customize the sampling rate for recorded data flexibly by research group or individual user level. 

Totals for each day such as average heart rate, maximum/minimum stress levels, total steps, calories burned, etc.

Sampling rate: Daily

Details for each recorded activity such as GPS information, distance, speed heart rate, temperature, steps per minute, etc. 

Sampling rate: 1-5s

Daily totals split into 15 minute epochs with information on steps, distance, met value, stress, heart rate, motion intensity, etc. 

Sampling rate: 15 minutes

Break down of sleep duration and sleep phases.

Sampling rate: Seconds

Heart rate variability (HRV/BBI) is the time between each individual heartbeat.

Sampling rate: Millisconds

Heart rate data based on each individual heart beat.

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Stress level and body battery.

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Pulse oxygen measured by night or 24/7. 

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Breathing rate.

Sampling rate: 1-3600s

Number of times the signal crosses the zero axis. The acceleration signal measures movement frequency. 

Sampling rate: 30-3600s

Accelerometer measures linear acceleration. 

Sampling rate: 25hz

Gyroscope helps indicate orientation.

Sampling rate: 32hz

Step 3 - Connect and sync Garmin device

Choose from a variety of synchronization use cases, either via the participant’s smartphone or via a central tablet. This covers all current and future research project demands. 

Smartphone Sync

Participants have access to a smartphone with Internet connection. Garmin device is regularly synced by the participants via their smartphone.

Operator Sync

Participants do not have access to a smartphone. Garmin device is regularly synced by an operator with a tablet that pulls the data from the Garmin device when the participant is met or visited. 

Mass Sync

Participants do not have access to a smartphone. Garmin devices are regularly synced by an operator with a tablet that pulls the data from the Garmin device when the participant is met or visited. 

Live Streaming

Garmin device data is streamed in real time to a tablet as long as there is an active Bluetooth connection. Data is only streamed but not stored as raw data elements.


Effective monitoring to prevent data gaps during data collection

Fitrockr provides effective and automated monitoring tools to ensure that your participants adhere to the data collection process. No more data gaps due to empty batteries or wearables forgotten to wear.

Setup questionnaires and ask your participants to provide feedback. Questionnaires are automatically displayed in the Fitrockr mobile participant app.  Answers can be analyzed and combined with the physiological data collected via the wearables.  

  • Create free text, multiple choice and single choice questions. 
  • Set dates when each questionnaire should be answered.
  • Schedule notifications to remind participants to provide feedback.
  • Analyze questionnaires on screen or download data in Excel. 
  • Combine feedback with the physiological data collected via the wearables.
