Crowdfund for Garmin Connect integration (for online version)

Tue 21. Nov 2017, 15:47

Hi,

First of all - thank you for your great product.
Gave it a try and then realized that it is much easier to use compared to Training Peaks (at least Runalyze clearly states "rest days/ easy TRIMP" - really cool), although planning feature is missing.

But what kills runalyze (in my eyes) is lack of integration with online platforms - I got used that as soon as I push "save" on my Garmin, the activity goes to Strava, Endomondo and Training Peaks. And I may get Kudos in Strava and analyze my performance in Peaks with no extra effort.
(I use runalyze online).
As far as I know, Polar/ Suunto have similar integrations (that are must-haves nowerdays).

My view is that integration is really essencial. I realize that you have integration on your list (tapirik). I realize (saw somewhere on Garmin site) that they ask for money for API license (5K EUR as far as I remember).
I realize that I probably demand too much from free-to-use platform.

But I do beleive that integration is much-much more important then mobile app (that is on your list for "someday") - at least I can view runalyze website on my mobile (pretty usable), but ingegration requies actions after each activity.

I definitely willing to pay for it - so if you start crowdfunding I will be in the first line to back.
Please consider.
It changes everything in availability and user experiense.

PS: Yes, I am interested in Garmin first of all, but I think other devices will be also welcome.

So again: As we really answer these question often these days.
tapirik was an older decision - we want a direct connection to Garmin, because we need the original FIT files.
We know a sync with manufacturer portals is very essencial.
We don't start an crowdfunding for that. You are able to buy a shirt at shop.runalyze.com or just easily spend money via paypal.
We already started coding to implement a sync with TomTom (and will hopefully bring that sync online in Q1 2018) Afterwards we will add Polar. (As it's quite the same API structure)
Until then we should have enough money (if not we will thrust out our own money) to get access to the Garmin API. We will get contact Garmin when we have the first portal connected to RUNALYZE
So stay tuned and buy a shirt ;)

Ich weiß nicht ob das für euch relevant ist, aber laut DCRainmaker wird TomTom seine Sportuhren-Sparte in näherer Zukunft schließen.
