If you don’t know, when Garmin’s internal memory space gets full (Well, mine and hers (I have a Forerunner 305))) will cycle off old runs as new runs are recorded.
For me, I trust in that process and it hasn’t failed me yet. (Looking for genuine wood to knock on.) And to be honest, it seems to keep a bundle of data on there. I had an issue the “other day” and had to delete my entire Garmin Connect history. When I slapped my Forerunner back on the computer, I was resigned to not getting all my history back. But to my surprise, it still had all my runs in memory.
But the wife wants what the wife wants. And with that…

How To Delete Your Garmin Run History
On the Garmin 110, there are a few Official Methods for deleting runs.
For Individual Runs:
Press and hold page/menu button until menu appears
Select OK on History
Press up or down button to locate activity to be deleted
Press start/stop and lap/reset simultaneously
Release on buttons once Delete Activity message appears
Press OK on Yes
Wait for activity to be deleted
More drastic is a master reset (BUT THIS resets EVERYTHING):
To perform the master reset:
Power off watch (press and hold Light, Yes on prompt)†
Press and hold Start/Stop and Lap/Reset
Press and hold Light (three buttons should now be pressed in)
After first beep, release Start/Stop
After second beep, release Lap/Reset
But if you don’t like either of the above or they don’t fit the need you are looking for, this method seems easiest to accomplish:
With your Garmin device connected to your computer, (it mounts as its own drive).
- Open that drive window up (if it didn’t do it automatically) and
- Navigate to the “Garmin\Activities” folder.
- Delete all the files (runs) (For me these were files with the “.fit” extension.)
And it not being my watch, I easily smite (deleted) the files I found. (Well, don’t tell my wife, but I copied them over to a backup folder, just in case.)
And that’s how I delete activity history from my Garmin 110.
