Syncing workouts with other services

Sync your workouts with other websites like Strava and Garmin Connect

iOS devices

Footpath saves all of your raw GPS data right to Apple Health, so you can sync and upload your GPS recordings to third-party websites like Strava and Garmin Connect.

  1. Download the HealthFit app ($3.99)
  2. Save your workout to Apple Health, if you haven’t already
  3. Open HealthFit and select the service you want to upload to, such as Strava or Garmin Connect.

You can configure HealthFit to automatically sync your workouts from Footpath to your website of choice.

Android devices

You can use a third-party app to sync the GPX tracks from your Footpath workouts to the fitness website of your choice, such as Strava, Garmin Connect, etc.

You can also use Footpath for audio navigation while simultaneously recording your workout with another GPS tracking app.

If you’d like to sync your Footpath workouts to another service:

  1. Download the SyncMyTracks Free app (free)
  2. Open your track in Footpath > Export button in the upper right > Select GPX Track > Save to Files…
  3. Choose a destination on your device to save the GPX file. (We’d recommend creating a new folder, such as “Footpath workouts” that you can use just for your Footpath workout exports).

To manually sync activities:

  1. Open SyncMyTracks and select “Export & import”
  2. Select “Export from” > “Files Directory” and select the folder you created earlier. Select “Store data” if you’d like to save this setting for quick access later
  3. Select “Import to” and select your fitness service
  4. Enter your account credentials and select “Store data” if you’d like to save the credentials for quick access later
  5. Select “Start” at the top to sync the GPX files from your device to your workout service
  6. Some services, like Strava, will automatically prevent duplicate activities from being uploaded, so you can reuse the same folder to sync multiple GPX tracks over time

To automatically sync activities on a regular schedule:

You’ll need to upgrade to the paid version of SyncMyTracks ($3.49) in order to use the automatic sync feature.

  1. Open SyncMyTracks and select “Account Sync”
  2. Add the gpx folder as a sync source:
    1. Tap the “+” button
    2. Select “Tracker” > “Files Directory” and select the folder you created earlier
    3. Change the file type to “gpx”
    4. Tap “Synchronize” at the top to save this sync source
  3. Add your fitness service as another sync source:
    1. Tap the “+” button
    2. Select Tracker and select your fitness service
    3. Enter your account credentials
    4. In the “Direction sync” section, select the left checkbox to automatically sync your workouts from the files directory to the fitness service. Select the right checkbox if you’d like to sync your workouts from the fitness service to your device or another fitness service.
    5. Tap “Synchronize” at the top to save this sync source
  4. Tap the Settings icon at the top to update the synchronization interval settings. The default is to automatically sync every 8 hours over Wifi.
  5. Tap the Sync icon at the top to manually start the sync process
  6. Any time you completed a workout in Footpath, just export it to the folder you selected and it will automatically be uploaded to your fitness service

Manually uploading activities (without a third-party app):

If you don’t want to use a third party app, you can also manually upload your activities to a number of fitness services.

Just save a GPX track of your Footpath workout to your files, and from there you can manually upload the GPX track to your service of choice using your web browser.
