Before the measurements from these Garmin devices can be uploaded and analyzed in Sports, they need to be set to record heart rate variability data (R-R data). You can see the instructions how to set that up from here. Only the measurements recorded with a heart rate strap can be uploaded to a Firstbeat software. Data recorded with the optical sensor can't be uploded. 

Note that newer Garmin devices, such as, Fenix5, Forerunner 935 and Edge 1030, has a "Log HRV" feature already in the device, so there is no need for any additional settings. Just turn on the feature in the device and it starts to record HRV data.

**Garmin Edge 820 with the firmware version 8 or above does not allow measurement upload to Firstbeat software.
