We want to be there for every step of your fitness journey, even when you use other devices for tracking your individual workouts! That’s our GPX/TXC import feature comes in handy! It’s designed for people with activity data saved on other devices or systems but want to import those activities to Runkeeper. For example, if you have used a Garmin, Suunto or Polar device in the past or continue to use devices like these to track fitness activities, but prefer to use Runkeeper for things like community, training plans, and a comprehensive view of your progress, this GPX/TCX import feature provides you with an easy way bring those activities with you.
