SyncMyTracks, synchronizes activities between sports applications


Cambiar idioma

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.


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.

After downloading the application and opening it, this is the screen that appears



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

I've been surrounded by electronic devices of all kinds for more than 25 years. Using them, testing them, taking them apart and dissecting them. Long distance triathlete: I swim, run and cycle for a long time. Maybe too much.

  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. ok thank you very much Eduardo. it's a shame. Of course I understand that commercially they want us to separate the Smart Coaching function from the use of devices of their brand Polar, but well podthey would decide otherwise and thus give more versatility to their product. Since 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.

    1. Only once I had problems synchronizing a file with Polar (specifically, on Friday to prepare the mountain route on Saturday). I had three or four unsuccessful attempts, but after 10 minutes I tried again by entering the password again, in case I had made a mistake, and I was able to synchronize without problems.

      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...

    I just bought a watch adidas my coach smart run of segundamano, the watch is perfect and I have come out very well priced, the problem is that apparently adidas no longer gives application support to that tlf, or at least I do not find it. And of course, I have no place to save data, only the watch itself.

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

    I don't know if you could tell me if this is the case or if there is any program or app that I can use to download data from the watch.

    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
