Yards and meters for manual swim activities in Strava app

Thanks for adding the swim distance yearly goal.  That's a great add!

I'd love it if you could enable the iOS app to manually input swim data in yards (Now I have to choose between miles and kilometers).   On your website, I can choose between yards, meters, km, or miles - can you extend this functionality to the app too?

Thanks!

    We now allow manual swim entry in yards or meters in the Strava mobile app.

    The saved activity will still display units according to your profile settings. If you have your account set to "kilometers", you can enter a swim in yards but the saved activity will display in meters. To continue this discussion, see this related post.

  • Yes, We need this. I should have the same options in the mobile app as I do on the website.

  • So....now I can set a weekly goal in yards for swimming (great!)  But still can't enter my swim distances in yards on my phone (WTF!!!).   

    Please, please make this very minor/easy change with the next rev.

  • Agreed. 

    Decent lap pools are measured either in yards or meters so we should be able to manually enter a swim workout this way, rather than by miles or km? Much is lost in the conversion if we have to input as miles or km.

    For example, yesterday I swam a 4,000 yd Masters workout. To input it, I had to convert to km (3.6576 km) and then when I rounded it in order to in-put it, it showed up as 3,937 yds...sorta silly because all pool workouts should end in 00, 25, 50 or 75.

  • Yes, we have many cyclists who are also triathletes who do a fair amount of swimming and running too. We're always logging it on our phones so it helps to have the same options available. Thank you!!

    Swimmers input distance in yards or meters, sometimes miles or km for open water swims. Give us the option.

  • Adding my name to this request too. Because I didn't really swim 1584 yards this morning, but that's what the closest "mile" marker converts too. It seems funny that you display the distance in yards, but don't let us enter it as such. Thanks!

  • Definitely. Hope it's not a big deal. 

    Usually my watch enters it for me. But, I forgot the watch this AM. Aha! 

    Had to go to the desktop to enter. (Which is less convenient.)

    Thanks.

  • Adding another vote, I want to enter YARDS for a swim USING THE APP, not the website.

  • Totally agree.  Need to be able to choose yards or meters in app when manually inputting a workout

  • I would estimate developer time to complete this request at somewhere between 1 and 3 hours, including testing. Why not knock this one out quickly? I don't own an Apple Watch, and don't really care what videos and training tips elite athletes post on Strava, but apparently someone does, because those things are getting all the developers attention. Please fix this. Considering it works correctly on your website, I would actually classify this as a bug in your mobile app. Would that get it fixed any faster?

  • It's a bit crazy that this hasn't been addressed yet. The app and desktop interface really doesn't seem to take swimming seriously at all.

  • Please add the Yards and Meters input options. As is I cannot accurately document my swim distances.

  • Just echoing this request to include yards and meters on the mobile app for swimming distance. Trying to find an app that works for me to track all of my activities in an easy way, and this would certainly help.

  • Not only does the app not include yards, I can't even edit "Details" on the desktop version to add in the yards later.  Please STRAVA fix!

  • +1 . As an engineer and triathlete, this is a quick fix that will boost user numbers and demonstrate a commitment to the future of Strava as a great training tool.

  • It makes no sense to not have it in yards and meters. They don't translate. When I swim 1000 yards, the closest option is .9 km, which translates to 984 yards. This should have been day 1, yet they don't even have it on the priorities list.

  • I've given up hope Strava will ever add this feature. Now I just wish I could unsubscribe from this thread so I stop getting emails every time another wayward soul chimes in with a sad, fruitless, "me too!"

  • Adding my voice to the masses asking to add swim data by yards or meters.  Can't believe this is not yet available.

  • @Ellie Anderson, it would be helpful to know whether this is in the product development pipeline and when the estimated release is. As everyone on this comment chain has said, swimmers enter distances by yards or meters, and forcing people to do the conversion outside of the app (through Google or a calculator or only on the desktop view) signifies a pretty severe hole in the app experience. if this feature is not going to be added, seems like the most respectful thing to let your users know so they can choose an app experience that supports their needs. I love Strava and I love the Strava community, but if the app doesn't support my needs as a user (a need that is clearly felt by others users too), then it's not the right app for me.

  • This seems like the most simple update ever and I'm surprised (disappointed) that it still hasn't happened. As everyone else has said, pool swims are in meters and yards. As someone who currently does not have a watch that tracks swims, I have to go into the website (not the app) on my phone to accurately load my workout. This is incredibly frustrating especially for something that seems so simple to enable.

  • Adding another request to include both yards and meters for manual swimming entries on the mobile app. Given Strava's attempt to make its social media accounts inclusive (bringing together people from different sports), time to be inclusive of swimmers!
