  • Transfer activity pages and custom multi-sport activity

    Hi!

    I've upgraded from a FR735XT to a FR935. I now want to transfer two settings:
    * activity pages, i.e., all pages shown during cycling, and the individual fields I have arranged there,
    * two custom multi-sport activities, i.e., activities where I've combined different other activities

    I don't want to enter all the adjustments again in my new FR935, because the whole setup was very tedious and time consuming.

    I already tried to copy two .fit files with promising names from the "multisport" directory on the virtual "USB stick" when plugged in the devices. However, these two .fit files were ignored and even magically removed by the FR935.

    What is the correct way to transfer these two settings to my new watch?

    Thanks
    Hansi

    The only correct way is to do it manually. Given that those watches have slightly different datafield sets and activity type sets, the corresponding fit files might be incompatible between different watch models.

      I think just manually

        Yes, as mentioned, the only correct way to do it is to do it manually. If you had two devices of the same model (or similar devices such as Fenix 5 and 935) you could copy the contents of SPORTS and MLTSPORT from the old watch to NEWFILES on the watch. (Copying things to NEWFILES is the proper way to transfer most, but not all,settings).

        You can still try it if you want, but you may have to reset your watch (or your individual activities) if it doesn't work. I guess you have nothing to lose except for your time (and whatever information you've accumulated on your new watch since then.) Although you can definitely back up and restore most of the stuff on your new watch.
