Did an indoor pool swim yesterday. Chose the Indoor Swim mode in the Strava app on my Apple Watch and swam ½ a mile. The watch showed the time passing, but never any distance. When the activity was uploaded to Strava, it only uploaded heart rate, no distance, no time. What did I do wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Same thing happened to me today on an outdoor swim. My First swim with my Apple Watch 8, so somewhat disappointed. I have the Strava app on the watch and selected swim (only one swim option). Time and heart rate recorded but not distance.
From STL's comment to Mt. Kenya, Strava doesn't support "Indoor Swimming". I am using Apple Watch to record Indoor Swimming now. However, it shows "Moving Time" not "Elapsed Time" unless you click on Analysis. I'd like to show Elapsed Time but Starva only offers the "Commute" option in Type of Activity. Please add the "Race" option. Thank you.
Hi STL - I don't have an answer, I'm actually wondering if you can help me. I don't see swim as an activity choice on my apple watch. I do see it on the app on my phone, though. Did you have to change a preference in Strava...or otherwise know how I might get it to show up?
