FIT or Flexible and Interoperable Data Transfer is a file format used for GPS tracks and routes. It is used by newer Garmin fitness GPS devices, including the Edge and Forerunner.

For using with OSM, it will probably have to be converted to GPX format.

GPSBabel version 1.4.4 and later can convert from FIT to GPX. In the GUI it is listed as "Flexible and Interoperable Data Transfer (FIT) Activity filefit".
From the command line:

gpsbabel -i garmin_fit -f -o gpx -F YYYY-MM-DD-HH-mm-SS.gpx

Or you can download into Garmin BaseCamp, Garmin Training Center or Garmin Connect, then export as GPX. Or you can use the online converter on

JOSM won't load FIT files directly although the idea has been discussed
