You can edit an activity at any time to update the sport type. You may not have had the option to record the correct activity type or recorded the wrong type accidentally. Keep in mind you may see some changes to your activity analysis based on the new sport type, including which segments you're matched to. Athletes are no longer able to change manual activities to virtual ones. Virtual sport activities must be recorded initially as a virtual activity using a supported virtual trainer or treadmill.

- Navigate to the activity you wish to edit.
