Sync Your Runs & Rides

tapiriikI am trying tapiriik, an open source project, to automatically synchronize my fitness activities between Garmin Connect, Runkeeper, Strava and more.  Yes, I use Garmin Connect on my main machine which does Garmin and Strava, but I couldn’t resist adding Runkeeper and RideWithGPS.

CopyMySports to Link Garmin Connect and Strava

logo_100x115I want to automatically copy by Garmin Connect information to Strava.  Trying CopyMySports

Garmin Connect keeps my actual precise data and because of its method of calculating the information is more accurate than Strava.  The simple explanation is that Strava has to include phones and “non-Garmin” devices and so is slightly different.  But Strava is more fun, both with sharing, competing over segments, courses, and teams. 

A friend recommended a product called GarminSync which is now being renamed Garmin Connect.  While it is currently having issues, it looks like it could be a good solution until Garmin or Strava catch on to what they should be doing and why.
