Newbie; how do I upload Garmin activities?

Hi, new to this and trying to get it to work. This seems like a dumb question but haven’t seen anything posted. I have Garmin Connect authorized and set the date to Jan 1st. I want to upload workouts from this year but nothing is happening. What am I doing wrong?

It looks like you only have TCX files on Garmin Connect. Unfortunately only supports FIT files. Support for TCX and GPX files is on the todo list.

Thanks for the reply. What is a fit file? All my workouts come from iSmoothRun and I moved them over to Garmin so I could use intervals. I don’t think iSmoothRun makes fit files.

Hmm. You would need to use some sort of converter to convert the TCX files to FIT format. I did a quick Google and there do seem to be quite a few ways of doing this. I will have support for TCX in “soon” but I can’t say exactly what “soon” is unfortunately.

Golden Cheetah can do this for sure, but that would mean installing a full suite only to convert TCX to FIT.
BTW FIT is a workout file format that can handle more different types of data than TCX.
