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

  • OK Elle Anderson, please explain what the official Strava number is that constitutes enough critical mass to actually FIX an issue that a couple of hundred of your CUSTOMERS who pay for your product are experiencing. Pretty please? I mean if Strava isn't going to actually resolve the issue, can we at least know why we are being ignored? Thank you.

    Dear Strava support team,

    my query relates to an existing request for a feature to be added to Strava. The requested feature is to:

    enable automatic synchronisation from Strava to Garmin Connect, not the other way around.

    I keep getting notification emails every time someone else makes the same request; see the email narrative below and the screenshot included

    "You are receiving this notification because you subscribed to updates to the post "Sync from Strava to Garmin Connect".

    Please do not reply to this message. Email replies will not update Help Center content."

    I appreciate that you get many requests for features. It seems to me that this is a particularly useful feature and seems popular.
    My medical aid rewards me for being active. My medical aid does not currently support Strava as a data source, but it does support Garmin Connect, hence my request.

    My question to you today is to find out if you are going to create the feature that syncs from Strava to Garmin Connect or not?
    Thank you in anticipation.

  • Please give us this functionality. I got my Garmin VivoActive HR after I'd been riding my bike for months. I would love to get the data synched up.

  • Hi:

    I've tried to import to Garmin from Strava, seems easy enough. Has pretty much most of the data except for power which is a bummer.

    2-way sync would be important to my wife and me and save us about 2-4x exports and imports a day (rowing and riding). Please add sync Strava -> Garmin!

  • I have a Garmin Vivofit, which does not use GPS to measure exercise. While it's good for running and keeping track of steps, it's useless as a ride tracker. I use Strava to keep track of my rides, using my phone. This feature would be a great convenience to your users. I see Garmin not supporting this in order to sell more expensive fitness trackers with GPS, which is probably why they don't offer GPS tracking from the Connect app itself.

  • Come on Strava! Get this sync feature, there are several hundreds asking for this. How about you make it an option or activity, so that after the connection is set up, we can sync to Garmin connect from the Strava App pr. activity we want synced. Just in case we don’t want all synced?

    Please address this officially & place the most recent answer at the top of this thread. For me this is mainly for Zwift sessions as they never make it to Garmin connect, yet I would like it there as I have a Forerunner on my arm which tells me about recovery, fitness & training status. If Garmin connect can’t see the whole picture then it is off. Which is the case when the Zwift sessions is never synced to Garmin connect.

    Please, needed it yesterday !

  • Hi has there been any movement on adding this feature for syncing strava activity back to Garmin connect automatically without any of the clunky work arounds? This would be ideal for recording activity on an iPhone or apple watch on the strava app so that I don't have to carry my Garmin Edge around

  • Yes! Then I can use the Strava app on my Apple Watch to run, still use my Garmin device for cycling and have it all synced in Connect.  I’d be fine syncing it all to strava but you lack some of the functionality and have some interface things going on I find less useful than Connect.

  • Add me to the list. Just changed from Garmin to Wahoo but still want to keep my stats on both Strava and Garmin Connect. Wahoo syncs straight to Strava but doesn't look like same for Garmin Connect. At moment doing it the long way around my manually importing the gpx file from Strava to Connect.

    Here's hoping.
