New metric: max. Heart rate drop as recovery metric
We've introduced a new metric that will be calculated for all upcoming activities (with heart rate data): The heart rate drop describes how fast your heart rate drops after high intensity. The idea behind this is that a faster drop means better recovery. This drop is determined within an activity as the largest drop within 60 seconds.
Marathon shape for other distances
With 100 up-votes it was one of the most requested features, now we followed your request and implemented it: The marathon shape is now also available for other distances. Read more in our blog.

Updates to our (automatic) translation
As you may have noticed, we use automatic translations in some places. Especially in languages that are not fully translated, you will notice this more clearly.
Now, automatic translations also take into account a glossary, which translates certain terms correctly. (To our translators: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you notice that certain terms in the automatic translations (e.g. in help articles) are not correct, so that we can add them to the glossary.
New settings: Custom date ranges
You can now define your own custom date ranges with a specific start/end date or relative to now as the last X days/weeks/months/years.

Fit files from Suunto: some data series (dev fields) were missing
Suunto does not specify whether those developer fields are for 'record' entries or 'session' entries and we missed to map them to the 'record' entries as well. For activities uploaded after this fix the series will be there.
Polar sync: Forced sync to download fit file
You can now use the force sync/download original fit file for Polar (linked at https://runalyze.com/activity/sync).
Only activities uploaded to Polar in the last 30 days and only activities that have been uploaded to Flow after you connected Polar Flow with Runalyze are shown.
Training partner details
There's a new details view for training partner, similar to what has been added for equipment.
Dropbox Import (for everyone) and Export (at least Runalyze Supporter) available.
Dropbox Import (for everyone) and Export (at least Runalyze Supporter) available. With the Dropbox connection you can on the one hand import activities (and later also health data) and if you are at least a Runalyze Supporter you can export activities automatically and get monthly the different health data exported as CSV.
Since Dropbox unfortunately only allows either complete access to the account (writing/reading) or only to the app folder, we have implemented two connections to Runalyze to reassure those who are a bit "worried" when we could theoretically have access to the complete content. (Dropbox Connections are currently in Beta and will be available for everyone in some weeks)
Read more at: https://runalyze.com/help/article/dropbox

Wrong Polar Nightly date was synced
Will be correct now for all new sleep/hrv data
Polars API broke - Changed the way getting activities
Polars "old" notification system for new exercises seems to be broken. We switched to the new one now and figured out the missing activities by looking into our logs. Most of the missing activities should be there by now.
You cannot switch the Polar file format anymore. It's now always fit format.
Nightly Recharge data synced from Polar (added to sleep/hrv)
Coros Sync - Added Resting Heart Rate/Sleep Sync
We added the sync of Coros Health data (sleep and resting heart rate data). We will not provide a historical sync for Coros health data at the moment.
Important: The REM/Deep/Light/awake duration is not provided via that API at the moment. We already requested that at Coros.
Default Equipment(s) per Sport
Really often requested: Default Equipment (per Sport) can now be set in the Equipment (Category) settings and is taken into account when automatically importing new activities. Go to https://runalyze.com/my/equipment/overview and edit your equipment categories.

Multiple internal updates
Internal upgrades on the framework & oAuth API Server
Sign in via Apple
Sign in via Apple is possible now
Added a bunch of new (internal) sports + sport icons
We have added today a bunch of new sports (>40) and icons into Runalyze to improve the automatic mapping of the synchronized activities.
Due to the fact that many of these sports have already been created in many accounts via custom sports, we have tried to adapt these created sports accordingly so that it maps to the "internal" sports.
However, due to the different naming and languages, it is not possible for us to do this for all custom sports. Therefore, it may be necessary to do this manually.
For this there is this help article: https://runalyze.com/help/article/adjust-sport-mapping
Health section: Track body temperature
adidas Running History Import (beta)
Added a history import function for adidas Running. Important: As we are not able to do many requests to the API this process can take a bit longer.
New activity value: Peak EPOC estimate
We do now estimate the Peak EPOC for every activity based on your heart rate data.
New expert editing tool: Calculate distance by gps
Removed map layers Wikimedia and HikeBikeMap
The maps were dropped by the provider.
Storing the developer session fields from FIT files
From now on, we also store developer session fields from FIT files, which were not mapped to native fields internally before. The field names coming from the files are sometimes a bit cryptic, so you have the possibility to configure the field names and units for the activity view. For historical activities imported in FIT format after 10/13/2019, the information will also be available in the future. The process for this should start in Feburary and will take a while to process the files again.
Update device list
Updated the device detection list (including some version of the Garmin Fenix 7)
New config option: Prefer ascent/descent from file
All following fit file imports will import the original values for ascent/descent. You can choose to display those values instead of the ones calculated by Runalyze. Still, when looking at segments of a route (e.g. for climb score or when analyzing laps) calculated values will be used/shown.
We show the ascent/descent values in the moment for all files imported since today. For historical activities imported in FIT format after 10/13/2019 these information will be available in the near future too.
CSV export for rr intervals on DFA a1 thresholds view
[Premium] Dataset fields for hrv values
Poster tool: fixed translations on poster

Sync with Concept2 Logbook
Synchronization with Concept2 Logbook is now available for everyone (as beta)
Synchronisation with Strava
As you may have noticed, Garmin no longer syncs third-party activities (e.g. Zwift) to us. As Zwift and other manufacturers do not yet have an API or do not want to connect us, we have now connected Strava as an option.
By default, only activities that are not already covered by direct connections are synchronized.
Direct upload of *.gz compressed activity files.
For example, Strava always exports the original activities in the data backup compressed in *(tcx|fit).gz format.
Fix Hr percentage in activity view for Hr reserve
Improved location detection
We have deployed a cleary improved location name detection. There will always be edge cases where the name doesn't fit perfectly.

FIT details: trimp added
Runalyze is now able to import vendor-specific trimp values stored in *.fit files.
Changes regarding defaults after registration
We changed some defaults after registration. We removed the activity type for 'Warm-up' (which motivated people to split workouts into three activities), renamed 'Jogging' to 'Eas run' and 'Long Slow Distance' to 'Long Run' and removed default clothes. Nevertheless, this does only apply for upcoming registrations and as usual every user can define his own activity types and equipment categories (and rename the existing ones).
Duplicate detection improved
We have improved the duplicate detection during activity import.
Detection of Zwift locations
Missing data in Zone distribution/Poster Tool/Performance Curves
It took a while until we have found why some data is missing. This has been fixed now and some activities are reprocessing. You should see all data until tomorrow evening.

Since 1st December, the initial trimp calculation may have been off. This has been fixed now.
Poster generation: option to generate heatmap for a single month
There's a new feature (for supporters only): The poster tool has a new option to generate the heatmap (or grid layout) for a single month.
Weather data: request data for the middle of the activity
Up to now the weather data was always queried for the beginning of the activity. This has now changed and we now request the weather at the middle of the activity.
New configuration option: import lap times with tenths of a second
We have added a new configuration option Round laps to full seconds which defaults to true. Unchecking this option will give you lap times with tenths of a second for future imports.

Our "PrivacyGuard" had a bug which caused the graphs/raw data to be missing for some activities. If you are affected by such an activity, you have to import this activity again.
Extended our API (Health metrics)
We have extended our API for our partners.
Respect all privacy settings from dataset for shared activities
Two months ago we started respecting the 'main' privacy settings from your dataset. Now, almost all privacy settings are respected. For example, if you set your average heart rate to private, the heart rate data series for other people will also be hidden.
New metric: VAM
VAM is the average ascent speed in meters per hour, calculated based on all classified climbs in Runalyze. This value is now available for all upcoming activities (with at least one classified climb).
Shortcuts to set all activities public/private
You can now set all your activities public or private with one click from your privacy settings.
Fix gradient calculation in case of bad gps data
Activity view: plot for flight time
The activity view now includes a plot for flight time (assuming cadence and ground contact time are available).

Our ANOVA tool can now group values additionally by month (and year), weekday and daytime.
Internal version upgrades
We have upgraded several internal dependencies of Runalyze.
Polar Health Sync
Due to a bug no weight or rest heart rate data was received. This should work again for future entries.
Option to switch off power calculation
Runalyze can automatically calculate power for running and cycling activities. Previously, this was always done when no recorded data was available. From now on you can choose for each sport whether Runalyze should calculate power always, never or only when empty.

Gradients above 40% (or below -40%) were incorrectly evaluated when calculating the Grade Adjusted Pace.
Device detection: Updated list of devices and vendors
We have updated our device list and are now able to detect a lot of new devices and vendors.
New beta feature: Withing Sync
Synchronization of health data from Withings is now enabled for Runalyze Supporters.
Garmin History Import: Limitation removed & history health sync added
The Garmin history import can now be used again without any limitation by Garmin. Requesting more than 1000 days of history is possible again.
Body composition, sleep data and resting heart rate are now available for syncing too. Duplicates can occur for health data if entries already exist for requested time period.
Recovery heart rate in activity view
The recovery heart rate (2 minutes after stopping) had been available as dataset value and is now shown in the activity view as well.
Edit activity: 'Save and close' button
Relative TRIMP has been added to dataset and ANOVA and trend analysis
Relative TRIMP is simply TRIMP per hour. It can be used as an intensity metric, similar to average heart rate, but taking into account the changing workloads during the activity.
Respect privacy settings for shared activities
The 'main' privacy settings from your dataset are now respected for your shared activities (daytime, title, notes, route name, training partners, tags and equipment). You may want to set those fields to private in your dataset settings.
FIT files: Fix for files from FORM smart swim goggles
Polar Sync: Resting heart rate and weight
Resting heart rate and weight should now also be automatically synchronized from Polar to Runalyze. Sleep data cannot yet be synchronized due to a problem with Polar.
Garmin Sync: Duplicates with weight and resting heart rate
Due to a misunderstanding of sleep and resting heart rate synchronization with Garmin, there were many duplicates. A fix was applied. Most duplicates for Resting Heart Rate and sleeps have been removed.
Full tables for all health data
All kind of health data like weight, sleep, mental state, blood pressure, maxium heart rate and resting heart rate have their own tables now where you can edit and delete all entries.
Garmin History Import is back again (with limitation)
The Garmin history import is available again. But as we are limited temporarily by Garmin with 1000 days/minute the tool maybe shows an information that you need to wait a minute.
Sync for Garmin weight, sleep and resting heart rate.
Weight and sleep data is now synced automatically from Garmin to Runalyze. Resting heart rate should be synced automatically too.
Refactored health section
New health section: We have migrated all data to the new health section.
A blog post with all changes will be available in the end of the next week.
Track mental state
Mood, fatigue and stress can have quite an impact on everyday training. Both positive and negative. Looking at these values over a longer period of time is therefore not only important for training, but also to be able to counteract in everyday life if the fatigue and stress continues for too long.
Track blood pressure
You can track your blood pressure. Automatic sync with e.g. Withings is in work
FIT files: Update for internal fit parser module
New Metrics: GAP, xGAP, xPace, Variability Index, Aerobic Efficiency, Aerobic Decoupling and Uphill/Downhill Efficiency
We will explain to you in detail what the values mean in detail soon. But you can already find the values for all future (!) activities in the activity view, in the dataset (must be activated) and in the usual tools (trend analysis, ANOVA, sorting by search). - And you can find a short info about the values in our glossary.
We know that you would like to see the values for all past activities - so would we. But this requires the re-processing of many millions of activities. We have this on our radar and will let you know as soon as this is possible or available.
Rebuild of database infrastructure
We have rebuilt, updated and extended our database infrastructure.
Grade adjusted pace for running
After a long time in beta status, the Grade Adjusted Pace (GAP) is finally here. We have made some adjustments to the calculation parameters and from now on we will show you the GAP for the running activities, for single laps and for climbs.
Facebook Login fixed
Streak view shows total distance
We have added the total distance to the shown streak (statistics 'plugin' below calendar view).
Equipment table: last use
The full equipment table has a new column for the last use of each object.
Show climbs in activity view and dataset
Climbs are now available in the activity view. In addition, you can activate the number of climbs (and their categories) in your dataset for the calendar view.
Fix weather mapping
Some weather conditions were wrongly assigned for data of the service provider darksky with us.
From now on you can view the progress chart for the different sports and time periods on Runalyze.
Compare your distance, duration, ascending altitude, TRIMP or number of activities in the current period (year/month/week) with a previous one (up to the beginning of last year at the most), and keep track of where you will end up.
Fix reading developer fields for multisession files
Fix gps parser for non-defined namespace extensions
Support for data series developer fields from FIT files
Runalyze does now import and store all developer fields from FIT files. Read more at our blog.
Fix default privacy for all sports
Due to a bug in the new account setup guide we had to reset the privacy settings for all users in the sports to private. If you want to have the activities automatically set to public when importing, you have to reconfigure that setting for each sport.
Easy account setup
Athletes can now easily set up their account to provide all the data necessary for specific calculations. Read more at our blog.
Fix best sub segments for non-equidistant data
There was a bug resulting in wrong best sub segments for power data in case of non-equidistant data. This behavior has been fixed.
Fix false duplicates for short transitions
Multisport sessions (e.g. Triathlon) with short transitions (less than one minute) led to false duplicates.
Fix time zone issue for sports panel
The sports panel did ignore the user's time zone when showing e.g. current week.
Out of beta: improved views for marathon shape and running performance status
Our two new views for the current marathon shape and for the running performance status are now available for all users. Read more on marathon shape view and running performance status at our blog.
Fix imperial units in plot tooltip
Plot tooltips in activity view did not respect imperial units.
Option to recalculate a single activity
It is now possible to recalculate TRIMP, VO2max and altitude for an individual activity.
Activity view: dynamically show inactive laps
History import for Decathlon
You can now take over your complete history via Decathlon sync.
Support for treadmill incline from Runn sensor
We have added support for incline data from Runn™ Smart Treadmill Sensor from North Pole Engineering.
New beta features: improved views for marathon shape and running performance status
For users with supporter status there are two new views for the current marathon shape and for the running performance status. We explain the new Marathon Shape View in detail on our blog and an article on the running performance status view will follow. After a few weeks those features will be freely available for every user.
Various minor improvements for activity view
We have internally refactored the activity view (to get rid of some legacy code) and added a few improvements. Heart rate and pace zone tables as well as computed laps do now show average power and power zone table does now show average pace.
Fix Google login for some users
The Google login did not work for everyone lately. We have fixed the issue by updating a third-party library.
Decathlon: automatic synchronization
Direct synchronization with Decathlon & Domyos E-Connected is now possible. Read more at our blog.
Glossary: running dynamics
We have added various new entries in our glossary for running dynamics (cadence, stride length, ground contact time/balance, vertical oscillation/ratio, flight time/ratio).
Climb score: show avg. power
Average power was added to the Climb Score view. You can switch between pace and power now.
Increased max length of equipment notes
NEW: Become a RUNALYZE SUPPORTER
To be able to invest more time in RUNALYZE in the long term, we are now launching a subscription model. You can become a RUNALYZE supporter. Read more at our blog.
Special event: Easter Run 2020
In view of the current situation and numerous cancelled events, we have organised a virtual Easter run. Read more at our blog.
Fix map for poster tool
Coros added export to RUNALYZE
Read more at our blog.
Internal refactoring for account activation/deletion and password recovery
TCX export of activities without datapoints
Revert using fit files for Polar sync
Polar sync now uses *.fit-files by default
Polar sync now uses *.fit-files by default. The option to switch formats has been removed.
New elevation correction config option
The user can switch between "Never correct", "Only if device has no barometer" or "Always". The new option "Always" is intended for cases when the barometer of a device is broken or provides useless data.
Do not correct elevation for devices with barometer
If a device that has a barometer is detected during import, no automatic altitude correction is performed, even if it is activated in the configuration. Barometric altitude data is usually much more accurate than data corrected by satellite data. A manual correction is still possible afterwards.
Fix altitude data from barometer
Elevation data from a device with a barometer was erroneously stored as 'corrected' data. Affected are activities between 13 and 17 March. In this case the data was not corrected, only the displayed message is incorrect.
Glossary: rest days and calculated power
Due to some recurring questions, we have added new glossary entries for rest days and calculated power.
Automatic device detection
When importing fit files, the device is now automatically detected in almost all cases.
Suunto: Force sync of individual activities
Sometimes Suunto only informs us with a significant time delay if a new activity is available. If in doubt, you can now directly trigger a sync of individual activities.
Fix invalid vo2max correction factors
In rare cases an invalid vo2max correction factor was calculated.
Fix generation of social images
After a recent change the generation of the images did not work anymore.
Anova and trend analysis: total strokes and swolf
We have added the swim metrics total strokes and SWOLF to our anova and trend analysis tools.
Fix account deletion link
The link to delete the account in the account settings was temporarily not available.
Limit number of zones
We have limited the maximum number of zones you can set per metric (heart rate, pace, power) to 20.
Add range for easy trimp
Instead of a single value (to reach TSB = 0) 'Easy TRIMP' now shows a range to keep an optimal workload ratio of 0.8 < A:C < 1.3.
Fix anova tool
The anova tool wasn't available after our latest internal framework update.
Internal framework update
We have updated the framework we use internally.
Fix menu on mobile devices (logout link was not reachable)
Running Effectiveness: clearify 'levels'
The levels we have shown so far for Running Effectiveness are only valid for data coming from Stryd. Running Effectiveness based on calculated power data (as done by us via GOVSS) do not have a high information content.
Fix power calculation for files with only zeros in power stream
Power values have not been calculated if the imported file contained only zeros. This behavior has been fixed now.
Fixed Polar History Import tool
Due to another uncommunicated change on Polar's side our history import for your Polar data did not work correctly.
Gravatar as profile image (optional)
You now have the option to use the gravatar as profile image (shown in the upper right corner of the dashboard and your public athlete page).
Race performance chart: date on x-axis
The Race Performance Chart has a new option to use the date as x-axis.
FIT files: support for Anaerobic Training Effect
Fix adding race result for activities with very long titles
Mapzen is the new default service for elevation correction
The elevation data from Mapzen has been set as the default elevation service. The service uses the terrain tiles dataset from AWS' open data registry.
User Backup creation failed
Backups were not working since 4th December. This has been fixed now.
Disabled Runtastic converter
Runtastic's official backup does include gpx files with heart rate and altimeter information from now on. The converter is not required anymore and has been disabled.
Ascent/Descent instead of a single elevation value
Ascent and descent can now be edited and can be entered for activities without elevation profile. So far, most sections used only a single elevation value (which was the maximum of ascent/descent). From now on, a single elevation value always shows the ascent.
New power value: xPower
xPower is a weighted average of your power output and serves as an alternative stress metric.
Read more in our glossary.
FIT files: support for description field by Suunto
From now on the developer field "description" Suunto uses in FIT files is mapped to our description field in RUNALYZE.
Fix for imports of invalid power data
Invalid power values (e.g. negative values) are now ignored when parsing a file. We discovered some tcx files that failed while importing because of those invalid values.
Export of a single activity: use correct laps
Exported activities (e.g. as tcx file) will now contain the correct laps instead of default 1k auto-lap.
Acute:Chronic workload ratio in calculations panel
The Acute:Chronic workload ratio (ACWR), which is simply the ratio of ATL and CTL, is now shown in the calculations panel. It can be used to determine injury risk.
Read more in our glossary.
RSS Feed for this changelog
You can now also subscribe to the changelog as an RSS feed.
Fix for poincaré plots
Until now, poincaré plots of hrv data always displayed only one (the last) y-value for an x-value. This behavior has now been fixed.
FIT files: support for estimated vo2max by Suunto
From now on the estimated vo2max by Suunto is mapped to our internal "estimated vo2max field" from fit files. You can activate this value in your dataset.
We have fixed a configuration that resulted in slower page calls.
Various bugfixes and improvements in our activity importer
Fix 'remember me' for login
The "remember me" functionality has not worked correctly since our recent redesign. This bug has now been fixed so that users can stay logged in for a longer period of time.
Automatic time zone detection for file imports
The time zone detection, based on the activity's coordinates, was broken for some time. During that time, we only used the user's default time zone which may be incorrect in case of e.g. vacations.
Auto-fill route names with start location
The start location is now automatically added to the "Route" field if the activity contains gps coordinates.
New design for landing page, login, registration, ...
We have redesigned the publicly accessible pages such as the landing page, login and registration or our glossary and help pages.
Calculated power is now correctly updated when the sport or altitude profile is changed
For all running and cycling activities for which no recorded power is available, power is automatically calculated. This calculation is now correctly performed (or removed) even if the sport is changed later and updated if the elevation profile is changed (by elevation correction or removing a data series).
Suunto Sync: Fixing laps
When syncing Suunto activities there were problems with the laps. We only support flat laps. This if fixed for all future activities.
TCX files: Fix empty altitude values
Missing altitude values were wrongly imported as "0", which leads to different problems. These values are now imported correctly as unknown.
Power calculation for running: Fix for potentially negative values
Illegally high speeds (e.g. due to errors in data recording) may have led to negative power values. This behavior is now suppressed.
Automatic translation of help articles
Help articles will be automatically translated into German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Italian, Polish or Russian if we have not translated them yet manually.
Activity data: New data series for Air Power from Stryd
Air Power data streams by Stryd will be imported for all upcoming activities. Still, we don't show the data in the activity view yet.
Storing original FIT files
From now on we are storing all uploaded fit files. You can download them from every individual activity.
Show/Add equipment categories in sport settings
In the sports configuration, the individual equipment categories of a sport can now be viewed, assigned and removed.
GOVSS/Running power for everyone
The automatic estimation of power data, if no recorded data is available, was previously only available for cycling. We now have such an estimate for running activities as well.
Read more in our blog post Running Power for everyone.
Workaround for activity upload from mobile devices
Mobile browsers like Safari do not support the list of supported file extensions. We added a temporary workaround until all mobile browsers fix that issue.
Fix stats view for some rare cases
Fix table headers in statistics plugin for year on year view
Added a changelog
We work on RUNALYZE day in and day out. To give you a better idea of all the changes, bugfixes and new features we're releasing, we've added a public changelog.
Centralized logging for the growing infrastructure
Fix trimp calculation after removing heart rate series
Fix for calculated training paces
The calculation of the paces in the section "Training paces" contained a small error. Speeds below 100% were a bit too fast, above 100% a bit too slow.
Design: Adjust colors to match logo
Fix fit parser for swimming heart rate in multisport files
Problem was caused by swimming heart rate, which is at the end of the file but belongs to the second session.
Show dataset labels in statistics
Elevation calculation: Correctly respect pauses
Tracked pauses must cause elevation calculation to split trackdata into different segments and add ascent/descent values of all segments separately to total ascent/descent.
Single queue for activity import
As a preparation for scaling the activity import, activities from history import, API import and normal sync now end up in the same queue.
New service for elevation data: Mapzen
We are evaluating new data sources for elevation data and added Mapzen as a new elevation service. The service uses the terrain tiles dataset from AWS' open data registry.
Sport type can be guessed by title
Activity titles (as provided in some file types) will be used to guess the user's correct sport type.
New tool: Convert Runtastic backup to gpx files
Runtastic has decided to discontinue its web platform. Downloading all your data from Runtastic is easy, but the data is stored in a non-usual format. We made a converter written by Glenn Reyes available to let you get your activity files in a standard gpx format. You can find our converter at runalyze.com/runtastic-converter.
Fix social image download
Internal framework update
We have updated the framework we use internally by some versions.
Refresh Suunto API Tokens automatically
Fitbit sync: Ignore duplicate notifications
Garmin sync: Check content type
Garmin's new API provides information about the file type. Unfortunately, for older activities, this is always mistakenly FIT, whether or not the file type is actually GPX. Garmin knows the bug but will not fix it. We now check the file content so that the import works accordingly.
Single fields for ascent/descent in tools and dataset
FIT files: Recovery heart rate 2 Minutes after end of activity
Removed dataset style option
Remove old Garmin api
The outdated Garmin api has been removed. Users that have not switched to the new api will not have any activities synchronized until they have connected to the new api.
FIT files: Update for internal fit parser module
Fix multisession files from Suunto
Activity data: Added Peak EPOC and support for recovery time from Suunto
Activity data: New data series for Respiratory Rate from Garmin devices
FIT files: Support for Power by IQ app Running Power Estimator
Power by Garmin Connect IQ app Running Power Estimator does not use the standard power field to store power data. This is now mapped to the power field in Runalyze.
Full Garmin import via new api
We are now able to provide a full history import (except third party activities and manual activities) from Garmin.
Subjective feeling in activity
Gradient distribution in climb score
Polar Sync: Option to choose between fit and tcx format
