So I have been having a bit of an issue trying to get my apple watch to record calories from my ride in TR when I upload the .fit file to Apple Health. Initially, I was able to do so without any problem for the past few months.
About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that Apple Health wasn’t logging any calories from my ride as usual. It was identifying that I had exercised a certain amount but never logging any calories. This was very odd. I chalked it up to being potentially an issue with Apple Health and made a feature request to have TR export to Apple Health directly to avoid this issue.
Upon further inspection, I realize that the .fit file from TR doesn’t actually have any calories logged in it anymore. I noticed this by exporting the same ride that I did in zwift using zwift’s .fit file (I use both alongside each other). Zwift’s fit file has both location as well as calorie data which means that Apple Health can easily incorporate both when logging activities.
I just wanted to ask, was there some fundamental change to TR that omitted calorie info? If not, is this simply a bug on my end and should I try installing and re-installing the software or wait for the big app update?
Edit: Further inspection in my local files makes it look like the recent files where I have had a problem are .fit files from TR. Traditionally, TR used .tcx files. Was this a sudden change?
