GA reported ransomware attack took armin Connect and Express offline, preventing runners, cyclists, hikers, and others from synchronizing their activity with Strava. But don’t worry – there is a manual way to upload your activity to Strava while Garmin is unreachable. Here’s how:
Your Garmin watch or bike computer.
The included USB charging cable.
A computer with a USB port (practically any computer is sufficient).
An internet connection.
Connect your Garmin device to your computer using the USB cable and wait for it to be recognized like a standard flash drive or memory stick.
The cable for Garmin watches is either plugged into the back as above or attached to the side. Garmin bike computers usually accept micro-USB cables in a slot on the back.
Open the drive assigned to the Garmin device and navigate to the “Activities” folder.
For non-music devices under the Garmin> Activity folders.
For music devices, this is located under the Primary> Garmin> Activity folders
You will see a collection of .FIT files. Each of these files contains your individually recorded activities.
Find the latest sorted or labeled by date.
Log in to the Strava website and navigate to strava.com/upload/select to manually upload a file.
Click “Choose Files” and navigate to your Garmin device. Find the latest .FIT file in the “Activities” folder as described above and click “Open”.
Check your activity. Here you can rename it, change your equipment, e.g. B. your shoes or your bike, and call it training. When you’re satisfied, click “Save and View.” That’s it. The activity will now appear in your feed.
