Add better support for Swim data to Strava

I am thinking about buying a Garmin Swim, but it is pretty useful if it cannot upload it's data to Strava. Is there a possibility that Garmin Swim will be supported?

edit: THANKS TO ALL THE SPORTERS REPLYING IN THE THREAD AND OF COURSE THE TEAM OF STRAVA!!! SWIM UPLOAD IS POSSIBLE FROM NOW ON!!!!

 

Strava Support edit: Although Strava currently accepts Swim data from Garmin devices, this forum can still be used to collect feedback on improvements we can make to allow swim data to be more useful and better displayed on Strava, for both swim metrics and swim activity data. Thanks for your feedback!

  • Hi. I think the best idea is to look at garmin connect for their swimming data. If we could read the same stats in strava that would be great. Of course I can always look in garmin but I tend to use strava all the time.
    Things like average strokes per length - even seeing the
    Swim in metres not yards. I couldn't see anywhere in account settings you can change that. Swolf is useful as well.
    Just be nice to have it all in one place. Ideally just load up whatever is reflected in garmin connect - they got ahead of you
    On the swim :-)

  • How you are not "meeting my needs" Strava is by not caring about me as a customer.

    Despite paying for premium for years, my Garmin Fenix 2 doesn't sync properly. It works fine with Garmin, training peaks and Sportracks. A number of tickets have been raised and closed telling me it's a known issue, but nothing changes. A decent programmer (of which you have loads) could probably fix the issue in less time than it's taken me to write this.

    So, as this is a swim thread.

    To anyone reading, use Sportracks. Awesome swim data, better than training peaks and Garmin. It costs about the same as strava, but their support is brilliant. Not that you'll need it as they support every device I've owned. It will also pull down all your history in one hit.

    Use strava for segments, it's what it is good at. Plus it's free.

  • I have a Garmin Swim, when I upload my swim information via Garmin Connect and Sync with Strava it displays the wrong date. It displays the date back in 1980 ! How can I make sure the correct dates are uploaded ?

  • Hi

    I would like to see, first of all monthly swimming challenges. Also as Garmin connect shows graphs on how fast each length is done, how many strokes etc, that would be a great addition. I use Strava for my cycling so would like to see all the info in one place. Being able to define which stroke would also be an advantage when calculating calories etc.

  • i think it is necessary to add a label with flippers, paddles and other stuff, and maybe other acuatic activites like scuva diving.

    thank you!

  • Please add the ability to mark a swim 'Race' just like you can with run or ride. Triathletes would find this useful. Thanks

  • Could we add the ability to tag swims as races?  It'd help for triathlons..

  • We might be able to manually add Swims to Strava but the fields and lack of data tracking is abysmal.  We need the level and caliber that we get in tracking cycling rides on Strava, for swimming.  I have uploaded from Wahoo Tickr X, and for Apple Watch, which has awesome tracking data, there is not even an option to upload (from Health App) to Strava.  I contacted Strava support and they just said currently the Strava iOS app only writes to HealthKit and does not read from it.  I really hope that will change in the near future.  Have a look at these screen shots of a single swim from Health app on iOS - we should be able to get all this data on Strava and see some nice charting the way we do for cycling.

  • As a swimmer (primarily), there are a few updates that would be fantastic additions to the Strava app.

    1. When calculating the distance, swimmers don't keep track of miles or kilometers, which means I typically use Siri to convert my yards or meters (meters is obviously easy to convert to km).  It would be great if you could select the number of yards for the distance.
    2. With the new Apple Watch Series 2, it would be awesome if the Strava app could integrate swimming as an option for tracking.

  • I have a very specific suggestion re: a missing feature for openwater swim data

     

    If you look at a run or a ride, you can scan along the graph, and at any point read of the key numbers (Time, distance, pace and elevation). This is great, as it makes it easy to check what your time was at a specific distance (or place on the map, by following the dot)), or vice versa. I use this all the time.

    Obviously, elevation isn't relevant for a swim, but pace, distance and time are.

    So why does that hover window not appear when you mouse over the swim graph?

     

    All you see is a readout of pace, against a scale of distance or time. But you never actually get to see the value for distance or time. 

    This seems like a simple accidental omission that could be easily fixed - if bike and run can both dispay this, surely swim can. In fact, if I reuploaded my swim as a "run on water", no doubt it would work!

    Would be great to see this sorted.

  • Hi, what is the current scenario for updating swiming data from MOOV NOW(already have) , Or which is the best one to go for. thanks

  • YES PLEASE - do add better support for swimming to Strava, for devices such as Garmin Swim.

    The data currently displayed is very basic.  As a minimum, I think you need to add the same support as Garmin Connect, which includes the ability to break down each interval into laps, and see for each lap:

    1) Stroke type

    2) lap-by-lap pace

    3) lap-by-lap stroke count

    Furthermore, you should be able to track PBs such as 100m times, 400m time, 1000m time (or equivalent for those who work in yards) - in a similar way that you do for running.

    Leveraging the social-media aspects of Strava (where you seem to have an advantage over Garmin Connect), it would be good if you could find some innovative way to give some way for people to give kudos and up-vote particular sets, make recommendations, etc., so that swimmers can be motivated to share and try other people's training sets. 

    Please consider!  I use Strava for most of my training, except for swimming where I find Garmin Connect to be a whole lot more comprehensive.

    Thx,

    Graeme.

  • Is there any chance of adding support for the new Platysens Marlin device?  It has great swim statistics in its own smartphone App - both open water and pool lap swimming.  It would be great to bring that data into the Strava environment, so it is together with all my cycling and running data.

    Here's a video showing the stats and app visualisation for the Marlin (see 7:30min onwards, particularly 9:20min onwards):

    https://vimeo.com/221492582

    Also check out how Garmin Connect allows viewing and analysis of data from the Garmin Swim Watch.

    This is the sort of thing we want on Strava for Garmin Swim, Playsens Marlin, Apple Watch etc. etc.

  • I'm also a new Marlin GPS Swim Meter user. 

    At the moment the only way to get data to Strava is to export gpx to email and manually import it. I've not yet looked at pool mode ....

    This note is just raise awareness to Platysens and Strava that there is interest out there for integration :-)

  • Are Strava actively adding new swim features to the platform? If so, one simple request, can you please add swimming to the dropdown selection on the profile settings?

  • This thread started back in 2012 and except for importing swim activities Strava still doesn't support tagging swim as a race, tracking in the user Training Log, etc.

    WHY?!?, it don't make *NO* sense.

  • When I upload from Swimovate watch into Strava it isn't working properly...Says I've swum 25 yards when I just did 3 miles!

    Please enable the Swimovate watch to upload to Strava correctly!

  • It's great that I can upload swims now but the data is still funky. I have a garmin fr 235 and use the pool swim app from garmin IQ, but since the garmin software won't let the IQ app input the distance I have to change the activity distance manually after it uploads. So when Strava gets the file the distance is always 0, and I can't change it. I tried putting the garmin data into sporttracks and then from there downloading the .tcx file with the distance corrected and overridden and then putting it into strava. This worked for the distance but now the time is an hour longer than it should be. Either time and distance need to be editable in Strava, or Strava needs to accept the FIT2 file type. Hopefully both!

  • Garmin Swim support is still very sketchy, and certainly nothing like the data available through Garmin Connect..  The total distance is wrong, and the interval data is wrong.  Basically all it is good for is recording the fact that you went for a swim on a particular date.  It's been like this for years. Isn't it about time the data from Garmin Swim was properly integrated?

    I recently invested in a Marlin Platysens.  Proper support for this device in Strava would also be fabulous.

    As I think has been said above - Strava is great for segments on the bike and on the run, but for pretty much everything else it is lagging well behind other platforms, and I see no point in paying for the 'premium' service until it has better support for all my triathlon disciplines (vs Garmin Connect, for example).

    Thx

  • A #MeToo for both prioritizing Garmin and the Platysens Marlin integration - I also use both !

    Still odd that i can't even select that a swim was a race - not that i do that many but would be nice to easily find them again (enstead of relying og other platforms)
