FitFileExplorer is a simple open source utility to open Fit files on your mac.

The goal of the utility is to show all the information in the fit file as is. This is intended to be a tool to explore all the information available in a fit file generically rather than a user friendly way to show some summary information. The target audience is likely developers or people that like to explore raw files.

For fields that contains many entries (record, laps, etc) it will also display graphs of the data from the last column the user clicked on.

If the data contains gps coordinate, the track on a map will also be displayed.

For convenience, you can also from the file menu access a 'Download' functionality to directly download and open a fit file from a garmin account.

You can as well export either a table of data from a fit files or from multiple files as csv files.

This utility is open source on GitHub.

Pro version would be welcome

I bought a Garmin watch for fitness tracking because I don't want to feed such intimate information through my phone. I don't want Samsung and Google (or Apple) to know about potential health problems before I do! But I also want to be able to download maps of my workout. Sadly, Garmin forces users to run watch data through the phone app in order to download usable data. This app is wonderful for at least being able to visualize the workout without having to use Garmin's privacy-invading software. I would pay money if I could also export tracks as GPX.

As the title suggests

It's as simple as that, and it's what I needed. Developer: if you want to monetize this, you could offer a pro version that lets us modify, copy, join, etc.

not what I was expecting, but as the title says

the data on my gps watch was slightly off so i was hoping to find an app that would let me edit and correct the data, but unfortanetly this only lets you veiw the file in a user-friendly way, but not edit it.
it works well, just not what I was looking for, although I hope they update it so you can edit the fit file.
