Hi,

 

It would be great to have free diving and scuba diving sports into Strava, in a similar manner to what Garmin Connect allows. 

 

At the moment, I am using a Garmin Descent 1 and activated the synchronization between Garmin Connect and Strava, but every time I go Scuba Diving or Free-diving, Strava recognizes it as Swimming. Which is normal because it does not support underwater sports.

 

In summary, it would be great to have the following features in Strava:

1. Free-diving as a sport in Strava

2. Scuba Diving as a sport in Strava.

 3. Allow the interface to get the data for Free-diving or scuba-diving sessions from Garmin Connect, recognizing the session features (depth, time underwater, etc.)

 

Thanks!

Fran

Would be good to know if there is a technical reason that it hasn’t been added - is there difficulty getting the information or the maps right. With as many sources to record the diving as there is now, especially with the addition of the Apple Watch ultra, I would think the demand would warrant integration. I

Everyone needs to vote ! They will respond to posts that get votes because it indicates demand. They don’t respond to just comments.

 

i reckon if everyone commenting voted they’d get on to it 🙂

This is one of my main activities, shame they don’t think scuba diving is fitness…they devs should try it sometime

I almost gave up on this since less than 100 votes in a year are probably too little for the effort.

However, having them as workout allows at least to keep up with your activity records and perceived relative effort.. Otherwise many of us would have a huge gap during long diving holidays..  For the detailed logs, I guess we should keep relying on whatever our computer or reference diving organisation supports.. 😕

SCUBA & STRAVA. They even sound like they go together. 

Here in the Bahamas logging another 20-30 dives in the next week on my Garmin Descent and still no way to upload to Strava. Bummer, with the demand in the dive community someone will be on this quickly.
