Zwift and Garmin Connect Activity Type


(Josh Larsen) #1

When Zwift syncs with Garmin Connect it sets the activity type to “virtual ride”.  This causes it to not show up as a separate activity when pushed to some apps like MyFitnessPal, which do not have a virtual ride category, and is instead calculated as steps.

If it were instead to set the activity to “indoor cycling” like other apps (TrainerRoad does this for example) it wouldn’t be a problem.   

Will you please consider making this change or to allow the user to select which one they would like?

I believe this would need to be done on Garmin’s end, not Zwift’s.
