I recently picked up an injury preventing me from running or cycling so I took to the pool for regular swims. My idea here is twofold:

1) Having stats for fastest swim for different distances like 400m, 800m, 1km, 1mile, 1,2mile(half Ironman) and 2,4mile (full Ironman). This feature exists for running: Estimated Best Efforts. So I suggest the same for swimming, regardless if its open water or pool.

2) It's always great to see a trophy after a run or cycle or most other sports, but sadly none exist for pool swimming. My suggestion is to award trophies for pool swims, each time you break a personal record for a certain distance and those distances are mentioned in idea one. Would love to see some trophies/achievements for a pool swim.

Note: I know that segments exist but that is for open water swimming. My suggestion on idea two in only for pool swim. Thanks!

Thanks for submitting your idea on adding achievements and more stats for swimming. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.

I would really love this to be implemented. It would allow you to track how you are doing on certain events (eg 100m freestyle short course). And also compete with your teammates.

The information is already provided by most smart watches that know the pool length and (most of the time) can detect the stroke that one's swimming.

So all we need is your magic to keep track of the segments :⁠-⁠)

Do we know if this is going to be implemented? I think it's such a good idea, it makes total sense. I would definitely sign up for Strava after my free trial expires if this feature was incorporated! 

25m/50m/100m/200m/400m/500m/1,000m/1,500m and so on...

Please Strava team 😍

Fully agree, pool swimming should be added to personal bests

This would be Excellent! Strava is severely lacking in it's props to swimming for some reason... Between these best efforts and no laurel crowns for swim segments. What's the reason Strava?? @Soren it would be really great if we could be supplied with a reason if there is one? 

Best wishes,

Hi team at Strava!

Can we please have an update on this? My training has ramped up and I really do think this feature would benefit me massively...

Is something in the pipeline?

 

Many thanks,
