    Same issue

    I'm experiencing the same issue. All the swimming scheduled activities appear as notes and cannot be viewed on Connect iPhone.
    They correctly synced with my 910xt but not the iphone.

    Anyone can help?

      Still nothing with this scheduling issue? I have a Fenix 3 and the swim workouts do not show up on device nor on my iPhone. Any work arounds?

        Hi Folks

        I'm new to the forum using the watch for triathlon (did my first 2 weeks ago!). Has this issue really not yet been sorted?!?!?!? C'mon Garmin!

        It is a right pain to have to go to a desktop to see swims (even have to print them out sometimes when my goldfish brain can't cope with the complex ones!) and a travesty that they aren't on the watch when it is clearly triathlon-ready. Why not just have swims work the same way as run/ cycle workouts do?

        Also, just in the last week - is anyone else having problems seeing workouts that you've done? Now when I click on the workout it just shows the headline of the box but no details??? Anybody have any tricks there?

        Regards and thanks

          Hi,
          same issue with a 735xt. The swimming workouts don't appear in the calendar...

          has someone found a way around? Creating the workouts individual manually?!
          Has Garmin done something since the first post in 2014?

          cheers

            I have Fenxi3 with same problem. Swimming (as part of Traithlong training plans for example) will be shown as a note on desktop calendar. Not shoen in calendar of the app and are not transferred to the watch as workouts.
            As a work around until garmin fixes it (it has been reported for 4 5 years now), to go on top right of calendar on desktop and publish the workout as a URL and add it to your calendar. What I do , I copy paste the link into a brower which downloads a file and upload that file into a distinctively coloured "workout" calendar on my Google calendar. So when i go swim , i have my phone in my waterproof bag by the pool to remember the next setp/laps.

            GARMIN PLEASE HELP

              Just wanted to bring this thread into 2018 - still broken.

              It does work if you publish the calendar into your google calendar, which is an ok workaround, but the notes dont show up in my GC App on my iphone, which is really stupid.

              Garmin.... come on now.

              How do I remedy this?
              Thanks

                Just tried this on iPhone X and GC on the interweb. Was able to add an activity in both locations. Just to clarify, I was manually adding an activity that had been completed, not adding a workout for the future.

                  If I add a workout to my schedule with notes in via gc on my phone on android I can then see the notes afterwards if I go into the scheduled workout from the calendar

                    Still not got an answer to this thread anyone ?

                    I tried to sort this out with Garmin support starting 22 March. after numerous emails back and forth where i got the feeling that nobody understood the problem, i had a response on 4 May from garmin support :

                    'As this is by design, it doesn't need sorting'.

                    Exasperated to say the least i am.

                    To re-iterate i had downloaded an Olympic triathlon training plan to Garmin Connect on my iphone.

                    The running and cycling activities from the training plan show on the Garmin connect Calendar.

                    But the swimming activity from the training plan is not in the calendar.

                    Which is very annoying because when i'm running or cycling i can follow the plans on my 735xt.

                      That's BS- the ability to build swim workouts is relatively recent, and I think they just haven't gone back in and updated the triathlon plans by making them actual workouts instead of notes. They were notes when they originally made the training plans available because there simply wasn't a swimming workout type to use.
                      You can manually take the notes and build a workout, which is a little bit of work but the end result will be fine. But ideally Garmin will just tell somebody to spend 2 hours fixing the triathlon plans.
