Have a Garmin forerunner 45 S

Problem: gives an alarm repeatedly "stegräknare och pedometer". Annoying, how do I turn this off?

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!
So your Garmin watch vibrates and displays a notification as you take steps, right?

Do you use the Garmin Connect app?


Customer Replay

I can return to the main display but again it in a while does the same
Yes I use the garmin connect app

On your iPhone or android phone?

Let's try this:

  1. Open the Garmin Connect app.
  2. Select Black box with three blue horizontal lines all notifications are now disabled

Do I return to you if the problem is still re-occuring? As of now I have to wait and see
what about push notifications?
shall I disable that too?

Let's try without disabling push notifications, but if the problem continues to exist, you can also disable it.

Customer Replay

as I do not push notifications, why not disable that too?

You can save this chat as a bookmark in your browser, or copy the link in your address bar, paste it to any place you'd like, and come back if needed.
If you don't use it, then why not? :) Sure, you can also disable it.

Customer Replay

Many Thanks I hope this fix made it. I will return if not

Okay, sure :)
Is there anything else I can do for you today?
