Hoping the Garmin option comes through. Would like to see this on my profile page:
You can find the Garmin integration discussion here: Interested in direct Garmin integration?
And also vote on it!
It’s also mentioned in CityStrides Roadmap (updated 2020-04-13), if you want to see it officially!
I wonder that too, but based on my observation, Strava never has a problem getting my Garmin data. Activities appear on my phone (Android with Garmin Connect & Strava apps) almost simultaneously after GC syncs with my FR235. And I suspect Strava, all it’s supported devices, is pulling a lot more data from Garmin than CS will!
@edsheldon, which watch do you have? I like that system of yours. I’m going to see if the direct Garmin interface comes to fruition, but if it doesn’t, will look into what you are doing. It will be good for CityStrides to use less Strava API call, but I don’t want to “loose” Strava data here, so maybe there needs to be a way to keep the Strava data CS already has, but not ask for more (suspend Strava sync). I think I read that if you remove Strava, or revoke access, then CS also “looses” the data. I don’t want that to happen.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out. Oh, James did say, “I’m going to need some [Garmin] test accounts”, and I will be willing to do that too!
