Garmin disabled Zwift Rides -> Badges

Are you able to duplicate using the Fenix and Zwift updates, get the badge for the Fenix data then delete the duplicated exercise, keeping the Zift update while retaining the badge?

To be clear. Delete the Fenix recorded instance, keep Zwift connecting with Connect, and still keep the badge.

Update: No you’re not. If you delete the Garmin recorded session, your badges disappear as well.

So more evidence, that Garmin/Tacx hardware is benchmark stuff, Garmin Connect/Software is quite frankly diabolical.

Cross platform development with PARTNERS such as Zwift should be the focus, not corporate hackery at the behest of their consumers. Most of whom know how to get around such idoicy anyway.

Moves like this, just create bad feeling and work for users. Get a decent bunch of devs in Garmin!

Has this stopped working for anyone else. It worked for a while now rides i upload via the fittool dont count on my training status. Upload via zwift and it does but not for badges. Very annoying.

Hm. It’s working for me. I did my last upload yesterday (set the target to “Garmin Edge 1000plus” with fitfiletools) and it added kilometers to the actual “200km” challenge at Garmin Connect.
What exactly do you mean regarding “training status”? In fact: my rides did never appear within the “training status” (“productive / recovery…”) within Garmin Connect on iOS. Only my runs do (which I do outside using a real Garmin gadget :-)). But they have ever been added to the challenges/badges.

What device did you set at fitfiletools? Maybe it has something to do with the chosen device.
I’m using “Edge” devices for my rides and “Fenix” for my runnin activities.

[Edit]: I just mentioned that the manually uploaded ride created a VO2Max entry. That’s something new und must have been added by Garmin within the last days or week. No Zwift ride (neither automatically nor manually uploaded) was recognized for VO2Max within the past.
Conclusion: my last ride was counted for badges/challanges and was recognized for VO2max analysis. Like :slight_smile:

Seems to be working again today. Always use Edge 830.
There was a recent update with gamrin and zwift that allows training status just need to record a couple of rides a week for a couple of weeks.
