As a consequence, syncing with Strava will be limited to paid intervals.icu users only (just to get below the limit again). Note that being a Strava subscriber or not doesn’t matter at all here.
While syncing from Garmin still works, Garmin does not forward workouts externally to its platform. So while TR workouts show up in Garmin, they will not sync to intervals.icu. This means that for 95% of the people, TrainerRoad will not work with intervals.icu any more.
Uhm, any chance that TR will consider supporting intervals.icu directly?
You can sync your workouts/rides with any of these services directly to intervals.icu. Since I got my Garmin Fenix I cut Strava out of the equation and will do TR workouts on my phone/tablet and simultaneously record the indoor workout with my watch. I’m sure there are better workarounds to not include Strava, but that’s how I do it.
Unfortunately I think Strava have decided to quietly drop the API by not giving out rate limits without all the bad press turning it off would generate.
My god, you’d think it would be so mind-bogglingly stupid for them to kill off their thriving third-party ecosystem like this, but based on what we’ve seen in the past few weeks it wouldn’t surprise me one bit. It’s like they’re looking at the dumpster fire over at Twitter and went “oh yeah, that’s the stuff.” It’d be great if Garmin opened up their API some more so developers didn’t have to rely on Strava to build tools like intervals.icu or VeloViewer.
After reading both threads, I’m still not sure what the most streamlined syncing solution is (I’m a paid intervals.icu subscriber so technically I don’t need to do anything but I’d definitely want to reduce my reliance on Strava anyway.) Sounds like:
Garmin Connect for activities recorded on my watch & head unit
TrainerRoad via Dropbox
Zwift… download FIT file manually, and either upload it manually to intervals or move it to Dropbox?
