Garmin Connect is down for many users, a month after a big outage was caused by a ransomware attack.
Garmin is trending on Twitter as users take to the platform to complain about being unable to access services. And it’s happening alongside similar outages at eBay, Visa and Cloudflare.
At Wareable, we were initially able to access the service, but our services are now offline too.
Many of the complaints on Twitter are from Europe, but like last month, thereâs been no word from Gamin.
However, Garminâs consumer facing pages are still available, so it doesnât seem to be the same wipeout that left users unable to access services, sync runs or even contact customer support.
In last month’s cyber attack the company took days to communicate to users, so itâs understandable that some people are sceptical.
And the timing is spooky too, with the big ransomware attack happening ahead of the weekend, where people are spending more time working out and syncing runs and cycles.
Down Detector shows a surge of reports around 2PM UK, 3PM Central European Time, and while that number has dropped off, thereâs evidence of on-going problems.
If youâre frantically trying to sync a run, the only advice we can give is go and have a recovery drink and check back later. The last outage sparked all manner of workarounds, but itâs much easier to just wait for Garmin to get stuff online.
Weâll update if we get word from Garmin, or when thereâs evidence the problems are resolved.
