I have a small bugbear with the syncing of activities from Garmin Connect to Strava and I’m sure I can’t be the only one. 
It is simply the workout title. In Garmin the type of workout recorded on your device is the default title (e.g HITT) but this is not carried over to Strava,  it is just called workout. 
it would be nice if the workout title would also sync. It can still be combined with the Strava default time of day format, e.g ‘Afternoon HIIT’ just as it already does for run, cycle, swim,  and maybe other exercises I’ve yet to do.

Thanks for sharing your idea, to clarify, the activity title isn't carried over to Strava when the Sport Types aren't supported on Strava, so in order for this to happen, we would have to add the additional ones that appear on Garmin, such as "HIIT". Currently, all unsupported Sport Types default to "workout" on Strava, as you've noticed.

Interesting. I thought it would make sense to carry over titles regardless. This would essentially save you having to support every type of workout. 
Any recognised workout would be categorised as such and anything else would be categorised generally as workout, but with a recognisable title. That way when you look back at your activities you know what the activity was.

HIIT activity is now on Strava!! But if I do a HIIT activity on my Garmin, it still appears as a generic workout when it syncs. How come?
