Huge difference between Pool Swimming and Garmin Connect

Hi!

I am experiencing huge differences between the pool swimming plugin and Garmin Connect.
Garmin Connect is near perfect - it shows the right stroke type and right distances and pauses.
Here the example: http://connect.garmin.com/activity/440180040
The first interval looks funny, which was entirely my mistake.

When looking at the same data in ST, it starts by showing a pause and then an ever increasing mess...
Stroke type is wrong, distances are off, there are 37 intervals instead of 20, etcetera. Funny enough, total distance is correct and even corrected the faulty first interval. So there is hope!

Has anybody else seen this happen and found a solution for it?

I have attached a screenshot and the original FIT file.
Upload to ST was done using ST import.

It would be great if I could actually get this to work properly, what I have seen from the functionality so far looks very good.

Zip the affected .FIT file and attach it to your post, please.
I'll have a look then.

Cheers,

FIT file and some screen shots are attached to my original post.
I can reproduce the issue - all my Garmin Swim imports look the same, they all start with a pause...

Kind regards

I've imported your .FIT file with Garmin FIT Devices plugin and it looks fine - just like in GC.
When I import it with ST's standard .FIT file importer, it looks strange. I've exported this activity to .FITLOG format and inspected that. It's strange as well. So obviously it's a glitch in ST's .FIT file importer.

Cheers,

Thank you for investigating this issue - sorry for barking up the wrong tree :oops:
I installed the Garmin FIT devices plugin and re-imported the file. Looks perfect! One small issue remains though, the replacement of the pauses by rest lengths. As this is is already discussed in another thread, I will add my 2 cents there :D

Oh, and I intend to report a bug concerning the ST FIT import function.

Kind regards
