The Polar historical data importer broke last month. We need to make some sizable changes on our side to remedy the issue and it’s taking longer than anticipated. That said, if you only need to import new runs you can still connect to Polar (autosync) from your Settings Sync Page. This connection will automatically push your new runs directly to Smashrun shortly after they’re available on Polar Flow. While this won’t solve everyone’s use case, for many of you this should be a convenient and easy to implement option.
We’ve made some adjustments to the import to capture race and treadmill flags and tag the runs as appropriate. We’ve also changed to combine the Strava activity title and description in the Smashrun description field. We heard from some user’s who made a case for this, but if it’s not working out for you just reach out with your ideas, and maybe we can find a better way to do it.
We identified a bug that was affecting some users which prevented runs from flowing through automatically. This was patched this morning and should put the issue to bed.
You still have a few days to take advantage of the Smashrun BOGO holiday sale. You can pickup a matching subscription for any new Smashrun Pro user by signing up for Pro or even by renewing early.
A baby girl
After working on Smashrun together for almost a decade, Jacklyn and I had a baby girl a couple of weeks ago. If we’ve both been a bit slow responding to emails lately, I know that you will understand. Thanks so much for your support over the years that’s allowed us to keep our dreams alive.
Congrats with your daughter!
Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!
Congratulations :)) Take it easy, guys!
Best wishes for your exciting new phase of life, both of you.
Congratulations on the baby girl! Awesome!
Congrats on the baby girl! Been a supporter of SmashRun for a while now and appreciate all the care and attention you give this; take a well deserved break!
Congrats on the baby girl!!!
How exciting!! Congratulations you guys.
An office romance?! What great news! Congrats to both of you!!
It definitely would have been if only we could have afforded an office.
Chris and Jacklyn, warm congrats on having a family. That is so great. Stay healthy and all the best to you and your kid.
Congratulations on the birth of your daughter, what a blessing!!!
Congratulations and happy new year.
Congrats! Let us all know when she starts running
Congratulations!!! Enjoy those baby snuggles.
Many congratulations, Happy New Year
Amazing! Congratulations to both of you 🙂
I see you now have the Strava description update. Did you used to have the description lifted from Garmin Connect or do I misremember? If not can you consider adding it, or is it a limitation of the Garmin API? If not possible then it would help if you could get the description from Strava even if the run originated in GC, was synced to Smashrun and was synced from GC to Strava later
Congratulations and Happy New Year!
Thank you for all the efforts you’ve all put into making Smashrun amazing!
Congrats on the new runner in your family! Actually, if she is anything like my daughter was at that age (many years ago) she’ll keep you running around plenty without even putting on your trainers! Time for a new badge? 😉
