InReach satellite tech (Service Activation and Billing) and Garmin Explore (Explore site and Explore app sign) used for location sharing, Global Positioning System navigation, logistics, and tracking through the Iridium satellite network are also down.
In addition to fitness devices, the outage has affected Garmin's aviation technology.
Garmin has assured people that there is "no sign" that own information was stolen for the duration of the company's main, ongoing outage.
"We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and apologize for this inconvenience", the company said.
The company announced temporary outages on multiple platforms - including its website, user data-syncing service Garmin Connect and customer service center - on Thursday, promising to get the problems resolved as soon as possible.

ZDNet reports that apart from Garmin's consumer wearables, flyGarmin, which is the company's Web service that works with its aviation navigation devices, has also been impacted by the issue. Right now, users aren't able to sync their data to Garmin's servers-which are down for maintenance following the alleged ransomware attack.
The Garmin Pilot app also was offline during the entire day, affecting several pilots that rely on the software to schedule and plan flights. ZDNet reported on Thursday evening that the company had shut down these services to deal with a ransomware attack, but the company has not confirmed this.
Garmin's product support call centers have been unable to receive any telephone calls, e-mails or online chats, as they are also affected by the outage, Garmin said in a separate statement.
