Import Your Activities to Your Fitdigits Account

Many times we want to share activities and workouts between health and fitness sites. If you are using a Garmin device, Strava or a variety of other popular upload sites, you can easily export your activities and import to our platform (Workout>Import) using the industry standard file formats .tcx or .gpx. GPX files are traditionally a GPS based file, while TCX is an enhanced version of .gpx, potentially including heart rate and other meta-information.

We do not support all .tcx/.gpx files, because even though there are industry standards, that does not mean all sites adhere to them strictly. We currently support Garmin (GPX/TCX), Runtastic (GPX/TCX), Strava (GPX), Cyclemeter (GPX), or GPSies (GPX/TCX) files.Your best bet is to give it a try if not from one of those sites, see if it works. We don’t currently support MapMyFitness GPX/TCX imports but hope to shortly.

The files to import should ideally be under 10Mb – over 15Mb may experience some issues.

Exporting from a Partner Site

On the partner site, look for where you can export your activity to a .gpx or .tcx file format. Usually it is and option when in the details of the workout itself. See below for Garmin Connect and Strava.

Garmin Connect

On Garmin Connect, you would go to the Menu, and choose Activities. Click on the activity you want to share. In the activity detail, click on the small gear icon in the top right, and then Export to TCX from the menu (or GPX). That will download a file for the activity to your local hard drive.

Strava

On Strava, go to Training>My Activities. Click on the activity you want to share. In the activity detail, click on the small wrench icon on the left, and then Export to GPX from the menu (or TCX if available). That will download a file for the activity to your local hard drive.

Importing to Fitdigits

Once you have your .gpx or .tcx file, on my.fitdigits.com, go to Workouts > Import Export, and in the Import section click Browse, select the file you had previously downloaded, then click Import.

You should see your activity show up in the list below when complete – larger files take longer so after a few seconds if you don’t see it you might want to refresh the page. You can click on the View link in the listing to go right to that workout detail page in our cloud. You can delete the import file (red X icon on the right) if you want without affecting the workout that was imported. We only keep source files for 30 days max.
