Did you get a new GPS watch over the holidays and wonder how you could automatically link your data to your Strava account without having to manually enter it? Are you tired of importing and exporting GPX, TCX, and FIT files? Did you even know that it was possible to automatically upload your data to Strava?
Strava is a great tool for tracking your activities, but most people won’t use it regularly if some manual effort is involved. Fortunately, Strava and the GPS watch manufacturers have been working hard to automatically link their platforms together so that it’s no longer necessary to manually upload your activities to Strava from your watch and platform of choice.
Here is a list of the popular GPS watch brands and how to link them to your existing (or new) Strava account. Click the appropriate link below, follow the steps, and go for a run. Your data will automatically upload to Strava before you can finish off that first post-run pint!
- Garmin Connect
- Suunto Movescount
- TomTom mySports
- Polar Flow
- Microsoft Health
- Epson Runsense View
- Jawbone UP
