Garmin Syncs everything?

I just realized that my new Garmin sportswatch syncs EVERY activity to Runalyze, including yoga, strength training, random walks and everything else. Is there a way to choose what gets synchronized? For example my Yoga practice was uploaded and considered by Runalyze as a 0km Running session...

Re: Garmin Syncs everything?

Yes, Garmin syncs everything (except third party activities like from Zwift) and no it is not possible to choose whats get synchronized.

Please check -> Configuration -> General Settings -> Import "Synchronisation Fallback Sport". Set it to others or whatever you want so that Running is not the fallback sport.

Re: Garmin Syncs everything?

Thanks, that worked.

Is it possible to create a sport in Runalyze under the same name in Garmin to make it automatically go into the correct category?..

Re: Garmin Syncs everything?

No, but there are some internal sport types in Runalyze. If they have been added as a sport they should map automatically. (Configuration -> Sport types).

This automapping of different sports is a topic that we will work on again in the future. In the beginning we wanted to give the users a lot of flexibility. We (Hannes and I) have already discussed internally how we can improve it, but we don't have a final plan yet.

So there will be some manual work for you here and there when you record many different sports.

Re: Garmin Syncs everything?

Indeed, just like the author after initial sync I've got a total mess of sports and didn't know what to do with them, I had to delete a good bunch and later re-assign them to corresponding sports. Now it looks better but having a way to associate particular recording e.g. by title would be pretty helpful.

There will be some changes in the future to the sport system to provide better mappings for more sports
