Show heart rate data on swim activities

Currently the swim data from the HRM-Swim doesn't display. It would be good to get it on there for suffer score etc.



  • update from yesterday - the TCX export from garmin and imported into Strava worked ok again today to bring through heart rate data - the update to my previous comment is that it isn't just the relative effort score that is available - you can also see the average heart rate for each lap (as pressed on my garmin watch)

  • Tried the "delete and import TCX file" from Garmin workaround...and it works (in that the heart rate data comes over), but two big caveats: 1) like others have noted, the full heart rate data only appears in the app (not the web view), and 2) it then screws up the distance of the swim.

    Add me to the list of non-renewers when the time comes. The vast majority (if not all) of the "Summit" services, and Strava generally, seem geared toward making Strava "Facebook for Exercise."  I don't mind some of the sillier social parts of it, but not at the expense of what I originally started using the platform for (actually recording training, getting interesting data insights out of it, etc.).  

    3+ years of this issue persisting with no real attempt at a solution is ridiculous.  

  • Garmin HRM Swim heart rate data works with TrainingPeaks on open water swims.

    I would guess that most committed triathletes don’t look to the fitness and freshness data in Strava but rather use another platform like TrainingPeaks, WKO4, Today’s Plan, or other platform. Strava seems to be more about the social connection.

    Side note, in June I ran into someone that works for Strava and mentioned this thread and he said, “Oh, those swimmers!”

  • We are on middle 2019 and do not have this functionality :(
