Moving time calculation for indoor Activities

Currently "moving time" is calculated from GPS data which means that indoor activities recorded on devices such as Garmin Edge with external cadence and speed sensors connected do not correctly show moving time. This could easily be ascertained by the times where speed is 0 or below 0.5km/h or some other appropriate threshold (my Garmin does auto-pause the activity which I am sure could be used).

This would mean more accurate calculation of Average Speed and Suffer Score for activities.

It would also be nice to have a separate classification of activity type "Track Cycling" so that we could view/filter our dashboard or Training Log to see these activities.

  • Same problem with Apple Watch Series 2! 

    I made my indoor cycle and then the time will be set to 0 and all data are lost included heart rate ! -.-

    Please fix this!

  • I agree - I like to track indoor running, cycle, and squash - disabling autopause helps but it would be great to have in indoor setting

  • Agree- there needs to be indoor setting. I road a stationary in a class last weekend, and thought it was nice to not have to bring my Garmin anymore with the Strava app on the Apple Watch 2, only to learn my data did not record (auto pause off). Frustrating as premium member, you want that data fed into fitness/freshness etc..

  • is there now a way to fix this?

    I'd like to have at least the time I rode on the stationary bike and my heart rate.

    I'd like to stop the gps. so the app from my iPhone or the Apple Watch does concentrate on the time and the heart rate.

  • Still does not work. Strava do not use the moving time from the .FIT file they try to calculate it from the GPS data. With no GPS data being present they fall back to matching the moving time to the elapsed time. Very irritating as I do lots of cycling at my local Velodrome and it looks like I pootle around at basically 0mph.

  • Issue dating back to 2016 that can't be resolved or at least justified. Which is why I would never pay for this as a training tool. Training Peaks gets it.

  • I am very frustrated by this too! I stopped and stretched my quads a couple times on the treadmill, and my pace went from Garmin: 7:36 to Strava: 8:47 !! Moving and elapsed time is parsed out on Garmin Connect and on Training Peaks. Why not Strava, hello????

    I have a 910XT. Does anyone know if this DOESN'T happen with later models?

  • The Garmin foot pod tracks moving time and sends it to your watch.

  • Steve, while it does track pace and time, Strava doesn't take pausing into account when using it. It counts paused time toward your overall time while indoors. Outside, it  counts overall time and moving time differently.
