Add better support for Swim data to Strava

I am thinking about buying a Garmin Swim, but it is pretty useful if it cannot upload it's data to Strava. Is there a possibility that Garmin Swim will be supported?

edit: THANKS TO ALL THE SPORTERS REPLYING IN THE THREAD AND OF COURSE THE TEAM OF STRAVA!!! SWIM UPLOAD IS POSSIBLE FROM NOW ON!!!!

 

Strava Support edit: Although Strava currently accepts Swim data from Garmin devices, this forum can still be used to collect feedback on improvements we can make to allow swim data to be more useful and better displayed on Strava, for both swim metrics and swim activity data. Thanks for your feedback!

  • Yes my local pool use Swimtag too, I swim a lot and being able to upload to Strava would be really useful.

  • Hi, the official comment is now 3 ys old https://support.strava.com/hc/fr/community/posts/208834877/comments/211865267 , but the Strava doesn't provide good support for swimming activities. :( Seems this thread is dead.

  • Swim data support (pool swimming) still sucks.  I guess no one at Strava is working on this at all.  Does no one at working at Strava own a Garmin and swim? Are you happy with what you see in the app / web page?

     

    On the app (iOS and Android) I get some crappy looking pace graphs that I can´t make head nor tail of. It just looks bad.  Maybe it´s the graphing option used, I don´t know, but it´s so poorly displayed that I ignore it.  Garmin provides much more info and better displayed.

    In the web page, I get a list of splits and nothing more - not even a "stroke used" column.  (I don´t pay for summit, etc.)  So, kinda pointless.  Why not rename to Strava Bike & Run inc.?

  • My Strava data comes from my Garmin watch which collates great analytics on my swim however occasionally Garmin gets the stroke wrong, or splits lap counts that need to be retrospectively merged to short the accurate number of laps. I can edit the data using third party tools to show the correct number of laps in Garmin however the Strava data remains inaccurate as I cant edit/merge/split the incorrectly imported data when it comes across.  Would be great if we could resync from other apps or edit to fix errors post import.
