proper metrics for swimmers and swim challenges

There is a lack details in Strava imported swim activities. Essential metrics such as length spits, heart rate, stroke type, PRs, CRs, etc, etc are all missing. The current swim data shown from a swim is very basic, it needs updating

also swim challenges, it's unfair that there are running and cycling challenges but nothing for swimmers

  • One year on and nothing. STRAVA is a waste of time for swimmers.

  • Cannot change the distance either because it requires the altitude... which makes no sense at all while swimming!

     

    I love Strava but there are a lot of metrics that could be added to really demarcate them from the others websites.

  • I implemented a simple application which lets you see your swims compared to other people. 

    https://swimstrava.herokuapp.com/

    Once you authorize the app, you can click the "fetch activities" to sync with your account. Then you should see how you stand in comparison with others.

  • I do open water swimming , and the metrics and measurements are horribly executed! A 45 minute swim will come up as 10 minutes active time, yet if I change the activity to kayaking it all reads accurately. WHY?!? I love strava for other activities, but can’t figure out why swimming is so badly built out in their app.
