Prague, Czech Republic / January 18, 2022 - ROUVY, an indoor cycling platform, and Garmin® International, Inc., a global leader of GPS-enabled products, today announced API integration support between ROUVY and Garmin Connect™. The integration enables users to seamlessly sync their activities created in the ROUVY app directly to their Garmin Connect account.
With interactive fitness booming over the last few years, the cycling season does not finish with the summer, but seamlessly moves indoors in winter. This new API integration will allow hundreds of thousands of rouvy-ing athletes to seamlessly access year-round training data, making it easier for them to monitor their performance and receive training recommendations.
ROUVY enables anyone to travel the world from home, simulating the outdoor environment indoors via the unique mixed-augmented reality technology. The combination of animated avatars with stunning, real videos provide unprecedented levels of immersiveness and fun to what was once a mundane form of training.
Petr Samek, CEO of ROUVY states,“For ROUVY, it is the end of the wait of our global community requesting this integration. We are honored and proud to work with Garmin on this new integration. Until now, our athletes have been exporting and importing their activities manually. Now, things have become easier and faster, allowing them to focus on training results and not on managing data.” When logged into their ROUVY accounts, users can now opt to link their Garmin Connect account to automatically import workout activities from ROUVY, where they will be viewable in the categories of “virtual cycling” and/or “virtual running”. More details and instructions on how to set it up can be found here.
The final integration of all imported .fit metrics from ROUVY to advanced performance analytics of Garmin Connect (like ‘recovery time’ or ‘intensity minutes’) is to be completed by Garmin later in February.
Engineered on the inside for life on the outside, Garmin products have revolutionized the aviation, automotive, fitness, marine and outdoor lifestyles. Dedicated to helping people make the most of the time they spend pursuing their passions, Garmin believes every day is an opportunity to innovate and a chance to beat yesterday.
