Swimming support with Apple Watch

Hi I have been given an apple watch for Christmas and I was wondering if there is every going to be able to either  upload swims straight from the apple watch activity app or have the swim feature in the watch addition app

  • So, update from earlier post about swim.com app on AW2. Did the traditional holiday 100 x 100s (10,000 yards) in a 25 yard pool last week and swim.com tracked 100% accurate, 400 25 yard splits. In addition, exporting as a .fit file out of swim.com then importing gets splits, HR, etc. into Strava. Know it’s a bit cumbersome, but it’s only a few extra clicks. I do like swim.com, can’t beat it for free IMHO.qq

  • I’ve been a premium member for cycling for years mainly for Fitness and Freshness, but now am swimming only and very disappointed with Strava. Pleases add swimming support or my premium is gone.

    Elle, what is the roadmap. Over the last months all of seen is the feed change for the worse and lots of social stuff. All I want is a good fitness app which I am prepared to pay for! We need swimming support!

  • Update on a previous post I made on this thread - I have been using Swim Exporter (from the App Store) to upload my pool swims from AW2, but recently saw a post here that recommends HealthFit to upload swims to Strava. So I used it and thought I'd post my findings. There is a simple difference -

    HealthFit delivered really clean lap times, separated by rest times and pretty accurate 100m splits, but no HR data.

    Swim Exporter delivers HR (which is good for Suffer Score and Fitness/Fatigue tracking), but no consistent splits. 

    Both were accurate for distance, overall time and moving time.

    So I have a dilemma now - which to use. Personally I think I'll stick with the HR data and inconsistent splits on Swim Exporter, but I sure did love the HealthFit data (I think I've missed my chance to make it to the Nationals this year, so my splits are pretty irrelevant. Well, actually I'll never make it to the Nationals...). Perhaps when Strava go there you can incorporate both - worth taking a look at both of these I think.

  • All, Strava does have Apple Watch support for swimming via the excellent App, Swim exporter.
    Simply swim with the Workout App, then open Swim Exporter. It will automatically sync your swim woht Strava including laps, heart rate and will even help Strava assign a suffer score to your swim.

  • Roadmap on Swimming please.. frustrates me cause I just paid for a year of premium and kind of regretting it. From a triathlete perspective Strava is a let down but I’m a creature of habit and I don’t want to start all over on Training Peaks.

    Oh it would be nice if I could access fitness and freshness in the app.

  • Hello Strava,

    Is there any update on when the integration between Strava and Apple Health will be available?

    I'm having an issue trying to upload swims (Apple Watch 3) to Strava so being able to log a swim with the Apple Watch Strava App or Strava reading the data from Apple Health would be great.

  • Whats the story here now? It doesn‘t make sense that I can choose a swim training in my strava App on my phone when the phone won‘t be in the water with me!
    Please finally let me choose swimming on the Apple Watch. I can switch to sports like cross-Country-skiing (no offense) and not choose swimming?!

  • Started swimming.  Scrolled through the iWatch activities in Strava and was flabbergasted that swimming wasn't available.  Thought...oh I must have to set it up on my phone first.  NOPE!  No watch support for swimming.  Unbelievable.  June 14th today.  Tomorrow marks the start of 'Late 2018'.  Any updates?
