It does!

I've got a new Garmin that can get notifications from my phone. I wanted to see if the notification of having a new post on my AP log would send a notification to my phone. I tested it and it worked.

Oh, maybe I should try that too - I just got a Garmin FR235 with that same feature...

So this will make your watch buzz?

No, his watch only buzzes when his weekly total drops below yours.

Yes, a post on my log makes my watch buzz (as long as it is connected to my phone by bluetooth).

I used IFFT.com to set up a notification. The the notification gets sent to my phone from the Garmin Connect app to my Forerunner 35.

It would be pretty slick to have a way to have my watch warm me that Cristina had more time that me.

ok, I wrote a script that checks our weekly training totals each hour and sends you an email when the lead changes. If your phone is fetching email and getting notifications for them then your watch will warn you when you fall behind, giving you a significant motivational boost.

(I hope it works)

My phone buzzed and I check what was up here on AP. Then I checked my email inbox and found a message. Your script worked. I especially like:

''' Generate email message to send to annoy spike. '''

I could (but haven't) set things up so that my watch buzzed when the message arrives at my email.
