We working on a resolution for this with Edge devices and compatible wearables.
I own an Edge 830 and just got also the new Fenix 6.
It's very annoying that Garmin connect does not know to sync the information between the devices.
+1 for this issue, this is the only reason I don’t buy a new fenix 6 yet. Please fix it Garmin! Thanks!
I second this. I need this functionality big time. I have a Forerunner 935 and an Edge 1030. I use my 1030 for my cycling activities which is 70% of my workouts and the 935 for everything else. The recovery time and training analysis is just garbage for me now. Connect only uses the 935's activities to calculate my training status. Connect says I'm being unproductive but my 1030 says to rest 3 days since I've been riding mostly this week.
You’ll see more/better integration of FirstBeat going into Q1 2018, mostly on the backend for things like cross-device sync between multiple devices (Edge/Vivo/Fenix/Forerunner), as well as site/app surfacing of that information.
You’re starting to slowly see things. Garmin is keenly aware of the gap here and looking to remedy. As they themselves noted ‘it’s impacting our best customers’. It won’t be a switch overnight, but you’ll just start seeing the individual gaps be filled one at a time.
