SyncMyTracks, synchronizes activities between sports applications

Esta página está disponible en español

The use of sports applications such as Runtastic, Endomondo or Strava is increasing every dayThey offer a lot of information for little or nothing, and in a device that we all have.

There are many of us who not only like to count our outings, but also share it with our colleagues and friends On more than one occasion you may have found that while you use one application (and have the data synchronized with it), your friend uses a totally different one, which diminishes his social skills.

It may also be that you decide to change your platform, that you are comfortable with Nike+, but a new feature of Runkeeper catches your eye, but you don't want to leave your whole history behind you've been racking up on your outings.

I don't usually go out with my phone, and I use my Garmin Forerunner 410 both for tracking during the activity, and then synchronize it with my computer and move it to the Garmin Connect application. Thanks to SyncMyTracks, once the activity is already uploaded to the Garmin panel (and edited, if there is something like the activity type to be touched up), I simply synchronize all the activities and have them in Endomondo and Runtastic, which are the platforms where I have social activity.

Not only does it synchronize times, calorie consumption or other metrics, it also downloads GPS data and will locate our workouts on a map, not only in the application where we created the route, but in all the others. In other words, it copies the workout completeand it looks like you've recorded it with that application in question. Fantastic!

Furthermore, and as a novelty since September 15th, the application is also capable of synchronizing workouts without GPS data (for example, those performed in the gym), something that it was not able to do before.

These are all the applications between which you perform synchronizations:

  • Runtastic
  • adidas miCoach
  • Strava
  • RunKeeper
  • Endomondo
  • Nike+ Running
  • Garmin Connect
  • Ride with GPS

Update February 2, 2015 - The application has been updated, adding support for Polar Flow and Sports Tracker, and now has a better design, thanks to Material Design.

Operation

The application is very simple (maybe too much, for what we are used to see). In this case, the analysis is done on the paid version (1.99 ? in Google Play), since the free version is only valid to synchronize 40 activities.

SyncMyTracks Configuration

Right now I wouldn't have any account created, so the first thing I have to do is add my accounts. Just select the tracker, enter user and password and select if I want to synchronize only the new entries, or on the contrary I want to synchronize the whole history.

Pay attention to the data consumption warning. We recommend to do it connected to WiFi if you don't want to spend your data rate, because the data is downloaded from the tracker in question to be able to synchronize it with other applications.

Once all the accounts have been added, I proceed to synchronize all the data. It takes the data from the various applications and copies it from one tracker to another quickly, and in a matter of three minutes we have all the programs up to date.

There is another option in the menu, which is "Export and Import". It downloads all the data from the tracker and uploads it to the one we choose. This is a one-time synchronization, so you will only do it once and it will not be recorded to do it regularly.

  1. Hi, I really like this post and the one you made to upload routes to the v800. Congratulations. I downloaded the full version of this app because it's very good.

    My question: can you upload the training load to Polar Flow?? I asked Polar and they said no, just wearing the HR sensor.

    but i don't resign myself... because it sounds strange to me. the training load function of polar is very good. but i don't always use the v800... for example in the water. even though i wear it, i don't use the band because it slips out when i swim.

    is there any way to add up training load like that?

    Thank you!

    1. Hello Michelangelo

      The training load can only be uploaded for workouts performed from the watch, as it is a fundamental part of the Smart Coaching options, and for this function the Polar needs to take the heart rate data for later analysis. That is why you cannot upload it through the data of other devices.

      I have all my activities synchronized and the only ones that appear with training load are those performed with the Polar.

      1. Of course I understand that commercially they want to separate the Smart Coaching function from the use of their Polar branded devices, but they may well decide otherwise and thus give more versatility to their product. Because now, as I will never use the HR sensor in the pool I can no longer see my polar as my "only" training heart rate monitor.

        Greetings and congratulations on your blog once again.

        1. It's not that they don't want to separate it, it's that it's the software of the clock that does the analysis for the Smart Coaching directly in each training, recording the fluctuations of the pulses.

          Sure, a similar procedure can be done from a training file, and maybe it's included in the Flow update for when they allow you to create activities or upload workouts, but I doubt it.

  2. Hi Eduardo, one more thing, in case the same thing happened to you... this app works very well sometimes, but other times it doesn't manage to connect to Polar Flow for many attempts, only after a few hours it connects again. sometimes it is a couple of days without getting it. I only use it with Polar Flow so I don't know if it is because of the app or because of Polar.
    Greetings,

    1. Sólo en una ocasión me dio problemas al sincronizar un archivo con Polar (concretamente, el viernes para preparar la ruta de montaña del sábado). Tuve tres o cuatro intentos fallidos, pero después de 10 minutos volví a intentarlo metiendo de nuevo la contraseña, por si me había equivocado, y pude hacer la sincronización sin problemas.

      Anyway, keep in mind that this is something that Polar doesn't support officially, and that they plan to add it (I guess soon, because the possibility is there, they just have to activate it), so those occasional failures can be due to changes they are making in Polar internally.

  3. Hi! I see it's only for android, is there anything similar for ios?
    Thanks for your blog and for sharing all this with us!

    1. I don't know of any app that does the same thing on iOS.

      The best solution is to install an Android emulator on the computer. It is easy to install and works perfectly.

  4. Hi, Eduardo,

    I wanted to ask you a question, and since I can't find a place to put it, I'll ask it here. I apologize if you think it's not appropriate or this isn't the right place.
    To the nougat...

    Acabo de comprar un reloj adidas mi coach smart run de segundamano, el reloj está perfecto y me ha salido muy bien de precio, el problema es que al parecer adidas ya no da soporte de aplicación a dicho tlf, o por lo menos yo no lo encuentro. Y claro, pues no tengo donde guardar datos, solo el reloj en si mismo.

    In fact, the watch is now discontinued and no longer appears on the adidas website.

    No se si sabrías decirme si esto es así o hay algún programa o app que pueda utilizar de soporte para descargar datos del reloj.

    Thank you very much for your time, and sorry for the inconvenience.

    A salute.

    1. If Adidas has discontinued support for your phone, you'll need an application to extract the training sessions in GPX or TCX format
