Hi all, for those that aren’t aware, when you’re recording your distances and you go over, Garmin (and Strava and many other platforms) have the ability to “trim” your time to the desired distance. For example, if you paddle and record 5.1 km but want 5km, you can adjust your recording to the desired length. NOTE: This is especially helpful for folks on the imperial measurement wanting to find their time for 3.1 Miles (which is 5km). Check out this video below for how to do it with the Garmin device:

Suddenly, your watch is showing that you burned an absurd number of calories on your drive home. Oops.

How to edit activities within the Garmin Connect app on your iPhone:
1. Open the Garmin Connect app.
2. If you are editing your most recent activity, you can find it under “My Day,” but if it is older, you can find it by selecting More in the bottom right-hand corner.
3. Once the menu opens, select Activities, then select the activity type. In this example, it was Walking.
4. At the bottom of the screen, your activities for this type will be displayed. Select the one that applies. Use the top tabs to navigate any activities that are older than 1 week.
5. Once the activity is opened, select the Menu icon (three dots in the top right-hand corner), and then select Edit Activity.
6. Under Stat Editing, select Trim Activity. This allows you to remove sections of the activity.
7. Here, you can trim the total activity time, trim start, or trim end. For this example, I am going to trim the end.
8. Select into the activity graph. You should be able to see details about your pace during the activity. In this example, I started driving before ending my activity, so the significant increase in my pace is shown visibly on the graph.
9. Once you have selected the activity graph, long-press the graph and drag your finger to the area where your pace began to change. You should see the exact time of the pace change.
10. Go back to Trim Activity and select Trim End. Insert a time as close the pace change as you can get, then select Done.
11. Select Save and Save again. Your activity should now be updated to reflect your actual times.
12. If you need to undo your changes, select the Menu (three dots icon) in the top right, while you are inside your activity, and then select Restore Original.
