    Does it link to an app to monitor your beer intake?

    No but its a nice idea

    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
    Rule #12 // The correct number of bikes to own is n+1.
    Rule #42 // A bike race shall never be preceded with a swim and/or followed by a run.
  • has anybody linked this to Strava? Do I need to be a premium member?
  • Mine is linked to Strava

    In the app on Android it is top right menu, "Settings"… "Link other services"… tick "Google Fit".

    Can't see a way to do it on desktop.

    So google want to harvest your Strava data also? Who knew?

    What's the advantage of letting them have all that data then?

    I could kinda see the point going the other way, if you somehow forget/lose your garmin data.

    Whilst a bit of a luddite I really can not see a top right menu and think I recently updated it. Does anybody else see it on an S3 mini?

    It's the three little dots to bring the settings menu - perhaps it is in a different place on smaller screen? It may be at the bottom somewhere.

    definitely not 3 dots at the top and the page stretches down indefinitely as it has my activities :D

    On a galaxy mini:
    From strava activities page, press soft menu key on bottom left of phone, to left of main home button. Select Settings. Under Account, select Link Other Services. Select Google Fit.
  • lol - was the only button I had not pressed - many thanks
  • I'm not sure it really works, half the time it fails to record my movement also it very dubious about how it calculates steps taken. Today I've only managed 15 minutes of walk according to Google Fit, although I have completed over 4000 steps....
