Targeted at fitness buffs, the all new Sportablet is an Android app that allows users to connect most Garmin devices to the Android tablets, giving users the ability to post to Garmin Connect or Facebook and more.

While Sportablet currently only allows one-way data transfer from the Garmin device to the Android tablet, there looks to be a roadmap for the further development of this app to allow two-way transfer.

Garmin users and loyal supporters can look forward to Sportablet support on the Edge series first.
