Select a default activity type

I use a general workout tracker (Garmin VIRB) and every day I have to change the Activity Type from the generic "Workout" to "Cycling" and rename the activity. According to Strava support, my activities default to "Workout" because the VIRB is considered a "general workout tracker".  It would be great if we could just select a default activity for our activities that are recorded using devices that are not specific to a type of activity.

Actually, we should be able to set default activity type regardless of recording device (say I want to use a running watch to record cycling activities).

  • Agree 1000 times with you. Same here with use of Elite my Etraining each time I have to change the activity to "virtual ride". I have enough in one month I can lose 15 mn doing that 3 hours per year.

  • How can this not be a feature? At least the app should use the last workout type used.

  • It's even better. I've recently revoked consent for health related data (i.e. heart rate) and suddenly every activity type that previously would be uploaded correctly from my forerunner (e.g. yoga as a yoga activity) suddenly becomes a run. It was working fine when I had the health data access granted.
