Swimming support with Apple Watch

Hi I have been given an apple watch for Christmas and I was wondering if there is every going to be able to either  upload swims straight from the apple watch activity app or have the swim feature in the watch addition app

  • @David,

    I'm voting up for your proposed feature list:

    "Swim workout tracking (Premium)
    Swim import from Apple fitness (Free)
    Multisport mode (change activities during workout)
    Triathlon mode (similar to multisport, but with the option to add transitions between activities)"

    Biiiiig thumb up!

  • @Daivd - Well put. I also agree!

    I tried tracking my open water Swim as s run and then editing it afterwards to change it to a swim, but strava did a terrible job tracking my movement and as a result I'd say it overestimated my distance by about 50%. Sure made my pace time look lighting fast though.

    For now I remain disappointed in Strava and will start using the Swim.com app.

  • Agreed. Integration with Apple Watch for swimming should be a priority. :-)

  • Any update on this? iwatch's new update is coming in the fall and that should have improvements that can maybe help this integration smoother even.

  • Strava.... put it on your roadmap! You'll offer the full suite of exercises with Apple users if you add swim! Your iOS guys I bet have already looked into it, just let them be free and push it to production!

  • Why no support for swimming on the Apple Watch yet? It's available on Garmin? Apple's activity app does a good job at it.

     

    Please add support! Even if it was just for premium users I'd buy a subscription!

  • I've just opened a ticket at Strava asking this.

    They are offering support for premium users so I hope I'll get an answer there.

    Here, everybody seems to be ignored.

    Another vote for integration of Swim data from Apple Watch 2 into Strava.

    Why? Well, we all have our preferred tracking  ‘ecosystems’ ( Strava, Apple Workout, MapMyRide etc) but the once you have chosen and are using one, you kinda want everything in one place. Strava is clearly out there with Run and Cycle. But I am forced to stick with the Apple Workout app ( very limited) as swimming is important to me.

    I am ready to switch fully to Strava only  and willing to pay a premium, but no point until Swim is in there. It seems many triathletes with the budget for  bikes and Apple Watch 2  feel the same.

  • Adding my list to a very long of people asking for swimming support.

    Priority 1 - swim support
    Priority 2 - triathlon with T1 and T2 support.

  • Well by no means a perfect solution, I start off my swims in the Strava run function. Then when I'm done I go to Edit and change run to swim. Sometimes the distances can be funky and the map shows probably more zigzags and the reality but it's at least one way to keep track of the swims in the Strava app

  • Swimming for apple watch 2 is a must have.  Not a complete triathlete app without it.  Please develop this!

  • For those looking for a pool swim tracker and Apple Watch, I have 205,000+ yards logged on swim.com since January 2017 with very few issues. Almost flawless. Two button presses, start and stop, and swim.com tracks my intervals, SWOLF, etc. even does a pretty good job of identifying different strokes. The only thing that really tricks it is kicking which I can just add manually after the fact.

    I'd love the capability to have swim.com upload all the stats into Strava like Garmin Connect!!!

  • I’ve just raised a new support ticket on this asking about the new Apple Watch 3. Total madness that this isn’t possible yet. I’ll post my response when I get it. In the mean time I have downloaded swim exporter and initial response is it looks great although strava should really be supporting this!!

  • Here's another vote in support of adding the swim feature.  I just bought a series 3 watch and was disappointed to discover that the strava app only supports run or bike.  I'm not really interested in manually uploading my swims so sadly I'll have to record my swim activity in the apple health eco system
