Ok, it’s not a big deal, but this REALLY irritates me.
Sometime earlier this month, Zwift rides stopped counting towards cycling Badges in Garmin (when Zwift is set to interface to Garmin). The activities still are recorded (thank goodness), but those activities no longer ‘count’ towards badges.
I talked to Garmin and they purposely disabled this feature - saying it was a software mistake that it EVER worked. What bull****. The ‘workaround’ is to run your Garmin cycling head unit in parallel, paired to your smart trainer, and then rides will count.
What difference should it make that non-Garmin sourced cycling activities going into Connect should be crippled versus any other activity. I ride year round, but I use a trainer/Zwift in the winter. It’s a silly thing, but I find these progress badges highly motivating, so it’s a drag that I have to do all these extra choreography to get activities recorded.
