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

    I personally have bougth the Halth Fit app https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/healthfit/id1202650514 and the developer was Stephane Lizeray https://www.facebook.com/HealthFitApp/ was very helpful.

  • Please support Apple Watch Swim ASAP.  You already support Garmin swim with their Forerunner watch, so why don’t you support Apple Swim ?

  • Adding another voice to the choir – please add support for swimming that does not require using a 3rd party App. Thanks.

  • Until Strava solves this, I need to wear two watches in the pool, the Garmin forerunner on one hand, which Strava supports and the Apple Watch on the other hand (to record to the health app) which Strava doesn’t support.

    How rediculous...

  • Bugger. That answered my question then. Thanks Elle for your official response. Waiting patiently (kind of) for a Strava swim function on my new toy.

  • So, update from earlier post about swim.com app on AW2. Did the traditional holiday 100 x 100s (10,000 yards) in a 25 yard pool last week and swim.com tracked 100% accurate, 400 25 yard splits. In addition, exporting as a .fit file out of swim.com then importing gets splits, HR, etc. into Strava. Know it’s a bit cumbersome, but it’s only a few extra clicks. I do like swim.com, can’t beat it for free IMHO.qq

  • Hello Strava,

    Is there any update on when the integration between Strava and Apple Health will be available?

    I'm having an issue trying to upload swims (Apple Watch 3) to Strava so being able to log a swim with the Apple Watch Strava App or Strava reading the data from Apple Health would be great.

  • Do we have an update on this? Don’t like the idea of another app for exporting mostly at cost.

  • Whats the story here now? It doesn‘t make sense that I can choose a swim training in my strava App on my phone when the phone won‘t be in the water with me!
    Please finally let me choose swimming on the Apple Watch. I can switch to sports like cross-Country-skiing (no offense) and not choose swimming?!

  • Just fixing the ability for strava to import swim data from health kit would do for me....is it really that hard to read data from HealthKit? A explaination of some sort is required and pronto ignoring us is not helpful.

  • It‘s misleading that Strava supports swimming, it doesn‘t. I have to find another app

  • The title of this thread needs to be updated to “Swimming support with Apple Watch 4”. Lost for words...

  • If you are here, you must be really disappointed to find not response at all. I suggest start taking out stars on apple App Store to see if the attention changes.

  • The ask is for a solution, using another app is a workaround at best and not a solution.

  • Having just brought an Apple Watch 4 after my previous multi sport watch broke, I’m aghast that Strava don’t include a swim function.  The ability to do this is obviously there as other workarounds prove, but since Strava want you to be the one platform for logging activities, why don’t they listen to their users, especially paying Summit members. Though given the lack of responses to the Zwift community for similar simple requests, I’m not surprised.

  • It's amazing how many people are requesting the Swim be added to the app for the Apple Watch. With all these comments in here, I would think that the developers of Strava would make this a priority rather than reply that it is not in the pipeline for now!!

    Someone knock on their door and wake them up!!
