Hi @giuseppe_rossi1

welcome to the forum.

That sound like Garmin connect does not take virtual rides in to account.

Garmin takes virtual rides into account but the activity has to be recorded on a Garmin. I get around this by exporting the fit file from Garmin Connect into www, changing the device to a Garmin, and then importing it back to Connect

It does, for some totals and few metrics, but Garmin Challenges are to be recorded on a Garmin device. That’s why there is the need to always modifiy a fit file or double record or merge fit files…

As I wrote above, using fitfiletools to change the device type to a Garmin WILL generate data for the challenges.

Yes that’s why I wrote the need to always modify a fit file or double record or merge :slight_smile: I wasn’t contradicting you…

I personnally prefer to merge files so I get the Zwift distance and elevation into the Garmin fit file with the rest of the ride activity data…
