Garmin Physio TrueUp

What is Garmin's Physio TrueUp?

Physio TrueUp is a Garmin Connect feature that keeps physiological data in sync between multiple devices.

What Type of Data Is Kept In Sync?

The following data can be shared across compatible products and are kept in sync with Physio TrueUp:

  • VO2 max
  • FTP and Power Zones
  • Recovery Time
    • Recovery Time will only update when Physio TrueUp is enabled on all devices.
  • Training Load
    • For accounts with Edge devices and wearables, the 7-Day Training Load value will only be able to be kept in sync between Edges and compatible wearables if the Edge is synced before every activity. If this fails to take place, the 7-Day Training Load will no longer match between the Edge and wearable devices, or on the 7-Day Training Load graph in the Connect Training Status page.

What Is the Difference Between TrueUp and Physio TrueUp? TrueUp keeps activity tracking data such as steps, calories, etc. in sync. To learn more, see - What Is the Garmin Connect TrueUp Feature and How Does It Work? Will My Older Device Share Data With a Device That Is Compatible With Physio TrueUp? Information from incompatible devices will still be shared with your Physio TrueUp compatible device. What Happens If I Have Duplicate Activities in My Account? Physio TrueUp will only download one of the two activity files to your device. If there is a preference in which file is downloaded during Physio TrueUp, review the activities in Garmin Connect and remove the activity file that you do not want to be synced to your device.
