Discussion: Wahoo Kickr to Garmin but not to AP

I just started using Zwift which transfers its workouts to Garmin (and Strava). Activities I use my Forerunner for are still transferring but none of the Wahoo Kickr rides transfer.

Is there a filter on the data transfer..? Is it possible to automate this transfer?

I have the same issue, have to download the files from Garmin then re-upload to AP. Why was in demand sync from Garmin removed?

Garmin doesn't forward activities that have been pushed into Garmin Connect from other services. I am looking at whether there is another way we can at least pull these activities.

The old sync method is not supported or allowed by Garmin.

I use the Tacx app with my trainer. Tacx was purchased by Garmin in 2019 and the Tacx data imports directly to Garmin and Attackpoint.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I missed out on a couple nice features with Tacx ( also trying to figure out simulated course from gps without buying anything else).

Maybe a Strava sync to AP would help?

I didn't realize Tacx only works with Tacx trainers. I would think Garmin might eventually upgrade it so that it can be used with other trainers. I'm benefitting from a fully integrated system I guess.

I have a garmin 235 and a tacx flux s trainer. Workouts appear on AP directly from the watch using the auto sync feature, on garmin connect from the watch, on Strava directly from Zwift and are also duplicated on Strava (with less info) from the watch, which I then delete.

I’ve had no disruptions and adding the transfer from Zwift was easy. And strangely I don't find any of this redundant. They’re all good at something that the others are not.

Thanks, Super. I just used my Garmin Forerunner 920XT to read in the Wahoo data at the same time as Zwift.. power, heart rate, distance, cadence.

That transferred to AP and Garmin Connect but did not transfer to Strava (at least so far) which is perfect. I was thinking I would get duplicate on Strava.
