The long drop down menu (Sport - *Device Upload) does not offer swim as a choice.
How can I setup my "Other Sport" activities to be added as swims?

Have you tried setting up a Garmin Connect account and syncing your BT log with it?  You can set it up so that Garmin recognized the 'other' as 'swim' and it will automatically get transferred here.

OR using the method you are trying to use, if you can get access to the file itself, you can do a 'manual upload' and that will work.

Yes I do have a garmin connect account, and it is already setup to sync automatically with my BT log.

Everything transfers well, but my swims appear as "Sport" (see image attached, the 53 min activity is a swim)


Should I choose - custom sport?

in Garmin Connect, does it come through as a swim?  I thought there is a setting to identify those workouts as they come through to Garmin Connect before it makes it's way to BT.  Let me know, if this isn't the case, I may need to do a little programming to move that sport to a swim.

On Garmin Connect it appears as an "Open Water Swim" at first, then I just go and change it for "Lap Swimming" if my workout was at the pool.
I usually change it as soon as it is uploaded to GC and before it makes its way to BT.

I will upload today's swim this evening when I get home. I won't change the workout until it transfers on BT, just to see what happens.

It still comes through as "Sports"... with no possibilities to change it to Swim.

That is a strange issue. I have the 910xt, and my swims, open and pool come through as swims. However, it doesn't ever show up as imported from Garmin Connect, whereas running and cycling do. I do have the same issue with Strength Training though. Strength profile on Garmin Connect comes through as a "Sport Activity".

Isabella and David,

We're doing some additional programming for these instances to allow you to manually move and sports imported from GC' to strength or swim.  This shouldn't take too long as we already have related fixes.
