I went badge hunting in Zwift today and knocked out 8 different routes. Because of the way Zwift works, that means 8 different activities sent to Strava and TrainerRoad, but for some reason Garmin Connect is only showing 3 rides. I tried to manually upload the ones not showing (after downloading the fit files from Strava), but they failed.
Is there a daily limit on the number of activities you can upload to GC? (In retrospect, I could have solved this by running my head unit side by side. Live and learn). I can shrug it off, but it’s 2.5 hours worth of rides, so I’d like it to apply to my Body Battery, etc.
If there is a limit, I would think this would suck for Triatheles, who would have 5 activities if they record transitions.
Thanks. I was thinking you would record a swim, then a transition, then a ride, then transition, then a run, for a total of 5 activities. I’m not a triathlete, so I’ve never done it myself on the Fenix. I see you’re saying there’s actually an activity called “Triathlon” so that wouldn’t apply.
I’m not saying I think there are a lot of people who would record more than 3 activities a day, but if this is indeed a limit in GC, it’s a +1 for Strava over GC, and I don’t give Strava many +1s!
Only to confirm (because I haven’t seen it explicitly stated): Garmin Connect shows that you didn’t do as much total activity (duration in time) as the other platforms, right? In other words, just checking that the files that did upload didn’t somehow contain the activity records of the files that wouldn’t upload, right?
If that’s not the case, I think it’s probably an issue with a munged file format coming from Zwift, but I had one other idea:
Any chance there could be something wrong with the timestamps on the activities? Maybe Garmin Connect is seeing them as overlapping, and won’t upload because of the time conflict?
