No option for indoor or outdoor swim.

Hello. I just joined Strava and I’m enjoying. I decided to do a longer swim this evening and discovered I had no option for meter/lapped swim. I only see “swim” no indoor or outdoor, also can’t see a way to input the length of the pool like it says online.

Hello @Kinglou1975 

Thanks for letting us know.  The Strava Apple Watch App doesn't have multiple swim recording options, and it only records elapsed time and heart rate data for swims.  For best results we recommend recording swims using the native Apple Workout app instead.

More information on Apple Watch and Strava

I hope that's helpful.

this is the main reason why I won't subscribe to Strava.  Makes no sense not t have these options

Thank you for the response. Will the Apple Watch then relay my swim info to strava and log it?

Hello @Kinglou1975 

Yes, you can sync that data to Strava.  Please refer to instructions here.

I am using the Strava app on my watch. Also in the iPhone app it does not display any other types of swim. It’s just labeled “swim”
