Garmin API

I don't know how new this is but somebody just pointed me to it. Garmin now has an API for their devices and a little app store. There's some interesting looking stuff there. I downloaded the API to play around with.

@mattm maybe

I love new APIs!

Using this I could write an app to inflate my TSS to monster levels that make @Ygduf doubt my training abilities. Or maybe I already have...

Really though it's cool, glad they did it.

It has been out for a while and there are indeed a few neat little apps.

THe problem is that the API is sort of limited in my eyes because it totally lacks the ability to access information about the currently running workout or the current lap on the device.

It is a cool idea, that has seen a few cool apps, but for right now they need to expand what the API has access to in order to make it more worthwhile.
