Updated over a week ago

You can automatically sync your run data from other platforms into PowerCenter. If the sync between Stryd and another platform did not automatically sync you can still manually upload your run to PowerCenter. You can import FIT and TCX files into PowerCenter. This can be helpful when using a Polar V800 watch, or when manipulating FIT files. TCX files exported from Garmin Connect cannot be imported as they lack power data. Please follow the steps below from your preferred platform to manually export activity data to upload to PowerCenter.
