Workout FIT file

Is there anyway to download scheduled workout in .fit format?

Thanks

No, a fit file contains all the data from during your ride and it doesn’t contain workout / training plan data.

Fit files can also contain workout data. Meaning the workout parameters for you to follow. There are hundreds of things the fit protocol supports. I’m assuming the OP was asking if there is a way to export a TR workout to fit file. That I don’t know. You could try the garmin outside workout functionality and see if you can download the fit from garmin connect.

Doesn’t necessarily have to be rude file. Just a empty workout file with interval info.

We do not have a way to export uncompleted workout’s in .fit file format interval info. This is intentional and it helps us to defend our intellectual property :+1:

Thank you @Bryce.

But completed ones are downloadable, you are aware right? I mean in .fit file

Sorry, that was my mistake. Completed workouts can be downloaded as .fit files, but we do not allow you to download the blank interval information.

To my knowledge, FIT files don’t capture the interval structure or the original workout intention. Rather, they simply record the data from all of your sensors. In other words, to download a fit file with no workout data on it would just be a blank file.

If you just want the interval info/workout structure, you would download an ERG or MRC file. These files can then be plugged into any applications that support these standard file formats (which is why we don’t allow you to export in this way).

I hope that clears things up :+1:

The fit protocol does support workout interval steps. Which means fit files can contain nothing but the interval steps. This is the type of fit file that you would put on your garmin to follow a workout outside. Then when you complete this workout, the actual data is put into it’s own fit file. The fit protocol actually supports a wide range of things. They basically made it so any settings or data you want on your device, it gets put there with a fit file.

Ah interesting, thanks for the clear explanation :+1:. Sorry for the confusion.

As we work to support more and more devices, we may expand our capabilities in this arena, but for now, we only allow direct export to Garmin head units.
