Interestingly enough, I looked again today and the .FIT files now have the correct timezone. Not sure when they fixed it and it's not automatic, but at least now I can manually transfer .FIT files over to Garmin Connect and they'll appear as Indoor Rowing workouts.

Unfortunately, I notice that if I manually upload .FIT files to Garmin Connect, everything comes out fine, and it's marked as an indoor rowing activity type. But Garmin Connect for some stupid reason expects a total number of strokes, which apparently isn't included in the .FIT file since it's 0.

Anyway for C2 to include the Stroke Count into the .FIT file?

FRiC, I notified concept2 support about this and they have fixed their fit file. All workouts going forward should provide an accurate total stroke count in Garmin Connect.

Thanks, just tried and works as expected. I guess this is the next best thing to automatic integration. :?

It's all we have right now. I learned from a software developer who partners with Garmin that they don't allow anyone to put data into Garmin Connect automatically, you can only do it with a Garmin device. We should still keep pushing for it though. Maybe they could have "Garmin certified" non Garmin devices.

From reading this thread I imagine all those sites/apps that sync data into Garmin Connect must be against Garmin's terms of service. I wonder how hard it is to write one myself... :shock:

Define "all of those". I don't know of any that put data into Garmin Connect, only copy activities out. To write your own you would need to pay Garmin $5, 000 and they would give you access to the API. From what I understand if they catch you automatically copying data in from outside sources they would cut your access off.

Tapiriik? Syncmytracks? I remember using Syncmytracks to sync my rowing workouts from Strava into Garmin Connect, but probably due to a bug or feature they all imported as running workouts, then they got automatically synced back into Strava as running workouts so I ended up with duplicates all over the place.

Tapiirik stopped syncing to Garmin a couple years ago after Garmin rolled out autosync. Syncmytracks uses a sketchy workaround of logging in as you (vs using a programming API) and they also don't support fit files which is the preferred file type these days. Here is an interesting article about Garmin autosync: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2014/06/cou ... c-api.html
