Garmin Connect/Zwift activities

Post by LicciardelloE »

Hi,

don't know if it's just me, but while the new Garmin Connect sync works great (and faster than ever) it seems to disregard activities that are "fed" to GC from third party apps like Zwift. Is it correct? Do I have to manually export and import them from GC every time?

Thanks,

Edoardo

Hi,

Zwift activities are not available for syncing at this point. According to Garmin, the reason are copyright issues, Zwift apparently does not allow activities to become available via API.

You may want to ask Zwift why that is.

Best Regards
Markus

Thanks Markus,

not a problem, I'll just use the workaround until something changes since the situation changes somewhat.

On a side note, I find that pretty funny, since Garmin themselves a few months ago integrated third-party apps into their training load calculations and so on. Oh well.
