Competed over 50 treadmill activities and didn’t receive a badge, started after April 2020 all with my Garmin watch.
Then I lose all my credit for walking, I used the treadmill activity on the watch but when I completed my activity on the treadmill I edited from running to speedwalking and I’m assuming that’s what there not counting. On the badge it says 50 “treadmill activity” I was assuming that as long as you’re on the treadmill whether you are walking or running it was going to still count nonetheless I appreciate all the information
Well, you can't have your cake and eat it too. You have to decide which of the badges you want. If it worked as you'd like, then you could change to one activity type after the other, collecting so all possible badges witht the same activity (or a group of activities) - walking, running, treadmill, cycling, swimming, and who knows what more. That's realy not the puprose of the badges, and it is not supposed to work in that way. I would not tell it sucks, it would suck if it worked that way
Garmin can't know if you are on the treadmill unless you tell them and the only way to do that is to use treadmill run. If there was an activity for treadmill walk then that could be used.
These badges are pretty silly since they only count the number of activities of a certain type and don't care about the distance or time. That means that it works with 1 second long activities. It is up to you to decide the rules for time and distance.
