Strava not reconciling duplicate activities

Mt. Kenya

Users are complaining that their activities are duplicated/triplicated within Strava Apps, because they seem to increasingly use multiple recording devices (for example recording a Zwift ride with a Polar watch and Garmin bike computer, or recording the same run with a Garmin watch and the Strava app).

I could try and reconcile these duplicate activities within my own app but it really is a Strava issue, as your stats and API activities will also be unnecessarily duplicated.

Maybe some API users really need to know which device created the activity, but I imagine that 99% of the time they just need to know that one single activity took place, and that its properties can be processed.

Is Strava thinking about handling this issue soonish or should I look at implementing my own fix?



If you state that this is a Strava issue then you should make some suggestions how Strava can solve this! With which rules should Strava detect that these are the same activities as they will be for sure have slightly different times, gps points and so on? Which of the multiple uploaded activities should Strava use in the end?
