Anyone have tips for getting Strava activities to correctly show up on Google Fit?

I know it’s not directly TR related, but I’m sure many of you will be using the same things I am.

I’ve only recently started using Google Fit, and tbh I don’t really have any need for it, but since it’s there I’d like it to be accurate…!

Firstly, for anyone struggling, I’ve learnt that the only way to get it to reliably pick up a new Strava activity is for me to edit that activity on my phone. Fine, I’m ok with that.

But it rarely pulls in the right number of calories. Tonight I did Geiger +4 which is 2 hours and (for me) 1440 calories. GF correctly reports 2 hours but only gives me 577 calories for it.

Is there an easy fix, or is the integration just piss poor?
