I use Garmin connect alot and find it ok.

BUT, I would like to be able to analyse the data more- for example on my interval workouts I would like to know what was the fastest 5k I did.

Anyone use or know of a more detailed program?

There is this 'ere programme, Sporttracks.

I didn't get on with it (didn't like the interface) but your mileage may vary.

You can export the Garmin Connect splits to Excel then fiddle with it to you heart's content.

Can you export into strava ? It always tells you your fastest 5k etc.

I started using sporttracks when Garmin temporarily went to Bing maps and like it a lot. I know use them both.

One thing that I like about sporttracks  is that you can display mile splits, even if you haven't set up auto lap on the watch.

Another recommend for Sport tracks - so good I keep meaning to actually pay for the full licence one day.

^but having just looked at the above website it seems they've stopped updating it.

I do like Fetch but, call me a snob, I find the design a bit Ceefax.

That's part of its charm.

Sport Tracks doesn't appear to be available for MACs, can any MAC users suggest some good software?

I am new to all this so any suggestions would be welcome - not sure what I am really looking for other than Garmin Connect doesn't quite do it for me ...

Training Peaks?

At least it is not all fur coat and no knickers.

It may not be the prettiest but I think it is the most functional

Try RubiTrack - you can download a demo to try it out before buying it from the app store or direct from the developers. I've been using it for a couple of months now and have found it really good. There are a lot of features I've still to explore, but it's very powerful and gets updated regularly. Loads better than Garmin Connect, which I still keep on my MBP as a kind of backup...just in case.
