Hello I just received my watch and I'm happy. I'm creating this discussion to find out if it would be possible to create a sports application (like the one already available) to send data to the strava application.
Thanks for your responses
I am also very interested in this topic
Regarding the interoperability among bangle.js apps and other apps like Strava, Bangle apps(GPS recorder or Bangle.run) write data in files in a csv format.
Whereas Strava app/web uses and import from XML formats ( .tcx and .gpx ) and a binary format ( .fit)
It would be great to add the xml as an output format in bangle.js apps but I am not sure about impact on performance.
There are several ways to generate an XML from with CSV data, but it requires mapping a some manual work.
Bangle run format:
GPS recorder format:
Hi - I did have a look at adding this directly to the App Loader, but unfortunately the Strava API requires some server-side stuff to work nicely (I can't just host it).
However as @dapgo notes you can import GPX files into Strava - so you'd just have to go into the App Loader, export the data to a GPX file and then import that file to Strava.
You can do that right now with the GPS Recorder app: https://banglejs.com/apps/#gpsrec however it doesn't record heart rate or steps - it's just the GPS trace.
It should be pretty easy to just copy the interfacing file from GPS Recorder (https://github.com/espruino/BangleApps/blob/master/apps/gpsrec/interface.html) to BangleRun and extend it to add heartrate/step fields though.
There is now the ability to export from BangleRun to Strava: http://forum.espruino.com/conversations/358435/
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
