Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have to log in using Strava?

Rather than make you create and remember another username and password (and trust us to safely store it) we let Strava handle everything since you already need a Strava account to use ActivityFix.

ActivityFix does not have access to your username or password. When you click "Connect with Strava" and authorize ActivityFix, Strava provides a token which can be used to read and update your activity data according to your rules. You are free to revoke this access at any time (see below for how to delete your account).

What Strava permissions do you request and why?

The permissions requested are required for ActivityFix to function properly

  • View your complete Strava profile - Allows ActivityFix to get a list of your bikes so you can create rules which update the bike used
  • View data about your private activities - This permission is optional. If you allow it, ActivityFix can run rules on your private activities in addition to your public ones.
  • Upload your activities from ActivityFix to Strava - Allows ActivityFix to update your activities. Without this permission your rule updates cannot be applied
How much does ActivityFix cost?

ActivityFix is completely free! If you're happy with what I've created and find it useful you can buy me a beer :)

Can I make a rule based on the sensors used in my activity?

Yes! If you are a Garmin or Wahoo user, you can connect your Garmin or Wahoo Cloud account to ActivityFix using the connected services button on the main menu. Once your account is connected, you will be able to save a set of sensors you care about and use those to create rules.

When you upload a new activity through Garmin Connect or Wahoo Cloud, ActivityFix will be able to retrieve ANT+ sensor information for that activity and compare it to any rules which use your saved sensors.

How can I make a rule for my trainer bike?

This depends on what software or device you use with your trainer. Most smart trainer software (e.g. Zwift, TrainerRoad) will upload the activity with type set to Virtual Ride. If this is the case, you can create a rule which sets the bike ridden when the activity type is Virtual Ride.

Your activity may also be uploaded to Strava as an indoor cycling activity instead of a virtual ride. If this is the case, you can create a rule which sets the bike ridden when is trainer ride is set

If you are unsure, you can always test your rule with a known activity using the Test Rule button on the rule creation page to ensure it will match your target activities

Can I apply a rule to past activities?

At the moment, no, though if enough people request this functionality I will work on implementing it. All of the framework is already in place with the test rule functionality, it just needs a bit more work to get your past activities from Strava.

Strava does place limits on how many activities you can retrieve in a certain period of time so there would need to be a limit on how many activities can be processed this way.

How do I make a rule with a OR condition

To keep rule creation simple, it is not possible to create a rule with an OR condition. Instead, it is recommended that you make multiple rules for each of the separate conditions.

How do I unlink my Garmin Connect account?

Garmin keeps this option hidden quite well.

  1. Go to and log in to your account
  2. Click on your profile picture (top right), and select "Account Settings"
  3. On the left side click "Account Information"
  4. Scroll down to the "Connected Apps" section and click the disconnect button next to ActivityFix
How do I delete my ActivityFix account?

This isn't actually a frequently asked question, but if you decide ActivityFix isn't for you, you can revoke access from your Strava Account. Go to My Apps on Strava and click the "Revoke Access" button next to ActivityFix

Strava will immediately stop sending ActivityFix information about your activities. After 30 days, your account, rules, and activity processing history will be permanently deleted from ActivityFix. If you change your mind within that 30 day period you can reactivate your account by logging in to ActivityFix using the "Connect with Strava" button on the main page.

Any connected services you have enabled (Garmin or Wahoo) will be automatically disconnected when your account is deleted.
