Garmin Connect fit file import

(Patrick Guenther) #1

I am not sure if this is a known bug. But since few days i have no elevation value (always zero) and title information like “Watopia Indoor Cycling”, if i import the fit file to garmin connect. Please fix the bug.

All the best

Hi Patrick,

This is not a bug on our end - this is an issue with Watopia being a fictitious place with Zwift-generated elevation and Garmin only recognizing the island as kind of a flat pancake.

Since Watopia is not a REAL place, none of the elevation data is real. Garmin overrides our elevation data with the actual GPS data instead.

We have talked to Garmin about this but they have to allow this on their end.

Hi Eric,

thanks for your response.

That explains why the Richmond rides have elevation data. However, it’s strange that I have a November 20th Watopia ride with elevation data but none since then.
