Wahoo to Garmin Connect

KevinAKevinA Posts: 492
Is this possible?

My rides aren't being synced to Garmin connect from Strava so I was going to manually upload but the file isn't compatible


Is there a way to transfer my rides that I have used my wahoo over to Garmin connect or is there an alternative app

    As far as I'm aware there is no converting as Wahoo and Garmin hate each other. Personally I use Strava as it allows pretty much everyone's rides to upload.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I use Strava as well but was looking for power data as I have dual pedals now so wanting to see the difference in right and left power

    Does Strava do that?

    Edit, just misread the post, if you use training peaks you can upload automatically from your wahoo and then the file can be exported to Garmin connect ( you may need to export file to desktop and then manually load in to Garmin connect).

    Just save the wahoo .fit file and upload manually to Garmin connect (I haven't used Garmin connect for ages but assume you can still manually upload files)

    Tried that and the file isn’t compatible

    Strava doesn’t sync with garmin connect either for some reason

    Paired and Unpaired several times and nothing syncs

    Contact Garmin as there is no reason it shouldn't work.

    From Garmin website:
    Garmin Connect supports .FIT, .GPX, and .TCX files. For a GPX file to successfully upload to Garmin Connect, the file must include time information.

    I’ll just use the wahoo app as garmin connect has always been frustrating

    The wahoo app has just been updated and is now much better if using android than it was.

    Still, there should be no reason why your files can't be uploaded to Garmin connect.
