Pull other workouts from Apple watch fitness app
For cardio workouts, I use the Apple Watch fitness app. It would be great if workouts completed outside Trainerize would sync to its dashboard. Thanks

It’s a pain to have to record workouts twice. Especially since Apple fitness has all of the details that are needed to record the workout with out having to manually update a workout in the app, it should be automatically recorded.

My client expected this behavior when he started syncing with Trainerize and was disappointed
Really surprised that this is not a feature yet, it’s been frustrating to have to manually enter these workouts

Currently syncing with Apple Watch/Health is apparently one way. One can do a Trainerize workout using Trainerize iOS app or Apple watch app, and the data is recorded both in Trainerize and Apple Health.
However, if one does an Apple Fitness+ workout, the data does not sync with Trainerize. This was confirmed with Trainerize support, who responded "any workouts completed outside of the Trainerize Apple Watch App or from the Trainerize Phone App (ie. Peleton workouts, Apple Fitness workouts, etc..) will need to be inputted manually." Support suggested adding this to the idea page for future consideration.
There is an easy workaround for the Peloton workout by starting an indoor cycling workout in Trainerize, but not for the Apple Fitness as well as others that might be outside Trainerize.
Please: 1. Improve syncing by making it 2 way as described above.
2. Improve data import from Apple watch by including heart rate graphs; currently only maximum and average heart rates are displayed in Trainerize, while Apple Fitness displays those as well as graphical information. Thank you.
