Using Garmin to update your Nike+ runs….

Miss a run by not wearing your Nike+ sensor?  Or has your Nike+ sensor stopped part way through a run??  Or is your Nike+ reading for your run way out compared to your more accurate Garmin reading for that activity?

If you have a Garmin, you can upload your activity from the Garmin file it’s saved as, onto your nike plus account.

All you do is go here:

Then enter the Garmin Activity ID:

For this one below, the ID is 75102901

And enter your Nike + login details, then click Convert & Upload

If you use Nike + to log your totals, you might agree this is pretty clever.  It just transfers the file onto your Nike+ account.

You can also delete the sometimes inaccurate Nike+ activities on Nike+ once you’ve replaced them with the more accurate Garmin activities.

    Hello there,
    I wonder if this software still works?

      Hi, it still works yep. It works for my 405 and my 610 I recently got. The site says it *should* work for all Garmin GPS devices (although it’s only been tested on a few models) so you should be ok. Sometimes it does come up with errors as there can be an issue with Nike+, but if you just perservere it works brilliantly. 🙂

      Hi cori. I’m not sure if it works now as I don’t use it anymore buoy could maybe email the developer and ask him? His email address should be on his website b

    Hi Lorn,
    I’ve been using your app for 4 years and I would like to say thank you. For last couple days I cannot convert my Garmin data to Nike+ – getting the following error:

    Error message: There was a problem uploading to nike+. Please try again later, if the problem persists contact me with details of the activity-id or tcx file..
    I tried different options – Activity ID, GPS and TCX file, but the error message is the same.
    My last activity ID is 665389888.
    Can you please check?
