Sync from Strava to Garmin Connect

I  can only seem to push from Garmin to Strava. What I want is to use the app to record runs when I have no Garmin device and push to Garmin Connect. Then I can have my data in both platforms. Is that possible?

In my Garmin Connect account settings I see that Strava can only read. Is that correct?

Application - Strava
Permission - Read

  • So Elle Anderson just how many people need to ask for this feature before it's fixed? Looks like you have about five pages of your users, including PAYING users like me who want to be able to push a workout fromStrava to Garmin Connect.

  • RE 

    "Sync from Strava to Garmin Connect."

    I want to reiterate that I mean Auto sync.

    I'm aware of how to get an activity from Strava to Connect manually.

     

    Can someone from STRAVA please comment on whether this feature is under consideration or not?

    Thanks.

  • Strava - not sure how many users you're waiting for before enabling users to send workouts / activities from Strava to Garmin Connect, but hopefully it's getting close.

    I would love this ability.  At the moment I'm having issues as Strava won't pull rock climbing activities from Garmin so I've been entering them here on Strava.  But as Strava doesn't sync back to Garmin I'm needing to enter the activities in both locations.  Sure would be nice if I only had to enter my activities in once and it would show up on both sites.

    Thanks!

  • Add me to the list as well. Actually I will concider not renewing membership as this is annoying as hell. Tapiriik has stopped working, so if I cant have both I will stick with Garmin.

  • Zwift now offers Garmin Connect uploads. One less reason to keep Strava.

  • So from them saying were looking at it and it's on our radar a year ago, to them basically saying now that it's complicated and isn't going to happen now or any time soon.

  • I hope the title of this thread serves as a wake-up call to Strava HQ.

    Not to create the the functionality..., but to ask WHY people now want this functionality.

    If I have to explain further then all hope is gone...

  • Having Strava sync to Garmin as well makes it the complete package.  Honestly, I am not sure what I am paying for with Strava as I don't use other premium features.  They got me on the auto renew for trial period.  I would actually want to pay though it it had better sync functionality with Garmin.

    Use case yesterday.  I wore my Garmin watch on a Peloton.  Strava connected with Peloton, and Garmin also recorded the activity, but now I have two activities on Strava, one from Peloton, one from Garmin.  I want Strava to connect directly as it captures more information that my Garmin will for an indoor bike ride.  I want my Garmin to be the source of truth for all activities (sorry Strava) and that would work if Strava would push to Garmin.  Doing manual exports and updating activities seems pretty primitive in our day of technology.

    Thanks for listening Strava, I am looking forward to my first year of paid membership!

  • Richard, I think you are missing the point of this requirement. Most of us already have Garmin devices and use those for training. The issue here is that because we already use Garmin Connect, it is useful to have all the workouts in Garmin Connect irrespective of source. Im my case (and I can't speak for everyone), I need to sync my trainer workouts (non-garmin) with my garmin account. Whether you use Zwift or Bkool or most other trainer software, these do not sync with Garmin (and if they do, only from and not to Garmin) but all sync with Strava. So this requested function merely would enable the pushing of other, non-garmin workouts to Garmin through the Strava sync process already available. I don't see non-Garmin users needing this, but we (Garmin-users) do need this. So it makes good business sense for Garmin to do this as I (a Garmin user) will remain using Garmin Connect to track ALL activities and not just the Germin ones. If this is not done, then I pretty much only need Strava. In my case, I do however need Germin Connect as my Medical Aid syncs with my Garmin profile to track my fitness to award me tangible benefits.

    I agree that the challange may be on the Germin side too, but hence the request to get the good people form Strava and Garmin to discuss this and action this request. Only they can do this, not us.

  • Simply unacceptable behavior. Given the 3rd party apps that can accomplish this, we know it's not rocket science. 

    While Strava and Garmin have some overlap, I don't view them as direct competitors. I think it would benefit then to play nice together. Here's how I use these applications, plus a 3rd: 

    1) Strava - social media platform for aerobic fitness activities, some analysis of data 

    2) Garmin - provides the hardware for most of my activity tracking; Garmin Connect acts as a bridge to Training Peaks 

    3) Training Peaks - planning and analysis number crunching 

    Here's an example where the lack of this feature really frustrates me. A couple times a week I run to/from the pool. Since I need the Garmin for swim tracking in the middle of this workout, I use my phone to track the running. Swim syncs from Garmin Connect to Strava perfectly, but the run does not sync from Strava to Garmin Connect. If I manually sync, it misses the "moving time" and thus can't classify the activity as running since it's too slow. 

    This is simply ridiculous. Keep this up and another application will come along and obsolete one or both...

    Yet another upset premium Strava user.

  • This is an issue for me when I ride my peloton which syncs automatically with Strava.  I want strava then to automatically sync the ride with my Garmin Connect.

  • Tapiriik works great, and syncs seamlessly over most fitness sites.  I've been using it for 3 years now.  Simple set-up, with automatic syncing, and all for a massive $2/year.

    But since this was raised not months, but years ago, I suspect Strava are not, on this occasion, listening to their users.
    Shame, unhappy users have a tendency to become ex-users, which would be sad all round.

  • Jeff, tapiriik still works, I just did a Strava run today and it updated both Garmin and Runkeeper. It's the only solution to this issues that I know of. Cheers!
