Did The Wringer yesterday (almost puked…good times) and it’s been trying to save all night, spinning wheel. The ride shows as complete (see pic) but won’t save. Internet is fine. I can click back, watch other riders, even continue riding myself…but no save. Was able to jump through a bunch of hoops, fix the .fit file, not a manual upload to Garmin doesn’t contribute to training load/status, etc. Which sucks, 12 weeks into 70.3 training. Anyone have a fix to get this to save and upload? Thank you!
I only have it on my laptop & companion app. I’ve done that a bunch of times before though. Hoping to get it resolved before next ride on Wednesday, really don’t want to force quit app and lose the chance of getting this on Garmin connect.
The issue I was referring to was that if you ended an activity via Zwift Companion, the game would occasionally get stuck spinning at the “Save” screen. This was resolved in game release 1.43.0 (released June 28-30), so if you’re running that version or later, it may be an unrelated issue.
With that specific issue, one workaround was that in the game, you could click the little “back” arrow at the top of the Save dialog which would bring you back to the game (and not end the activity), and then end the activity again via the game and not via Companion - typically that would work around the issue. But again, that was likely a separate issue and that workaround may not be effective in this case.
It sounds like you’re able to press that little “back” arrow to close the spinning save dialog, is that correct? In the game, if you then open Menu and end the activity again, does it continue to spin?
The fit won’t upload to Garmin without a bunch of fixfit steps. It was missing calories, date, type of event, etc, but regardless, won’t contribute to training load, status, etc. Would love to find a solution to save automatically like I typically do (save is still spinning) or, a solution where I can force quit the app, then save the activity automatically, after a restart. Thank you!
That’s odd. I’ve checked and the .fit files I’ve uploaded to Garmin have all the metrics in them. Zwift auto saves every 10 mins so all the data should be there. I wonder if it’ll only before complete when the file is no longer being written to as it is now. Basically the file is open and being updated.
Only way you’ll find out is to terminate Zwift which is what you don’t want to do without knowing it’ll work.
