How to sync runs between android apps more effortlessly

Now, in the last couple of years, the number of training apps has exploded and there are hundreds of different options depending on what equipment you have and OS (Windows, Apple, Android, and so on). I mostly use Android and because of that this post will focus on that and how I use it.

Now, there is no reason to sync these many apps with each other if you are just looking for an app to track your training. I do this because I want to compare my training with my friends and almost none of them use the same app. The second reason is that I want to take advantage of advanced functions in the different apps. I will specify each app below and why I use it.


MapMyRun

Created by UnderArmour and can be connected to all their other apps and UAs HOVR technology connected shoes to more accurately track your progress and improve your running technique. The shoes are using sensors in the shoes that you connect to the app. I use this app because it has the best Samsung Gear S3 frontier app that can track the running (that is not Samsung health) and sync to the phone after a run is completed. Thanks to this app, I don't have to have my phone with me when I'm out running, this is great when I want to take a quick run, I only put on running shorts and shoes and then I'm out, I don't have any pockets on my shorts. Functionality: It has the same functions that most of them have, track your distance, pace, stride length (with connected shoes), calories, and HR (with HR monitor). You also have the option to save your course and run courses created by other users and compare results.

Runkeeper

Runkeeper is the running app I have used the most, it is the first app I used to track my progress when I started to run seriously. I have used the training programs several times to improve my running. This is the app most of my friends are using and we can compare our progress. Like most apps, you can set up your own goals that you want to achieve.

Garmin Connect

I don't have any Garmin gear and because of that this is the app I only use to sync my training to another app, this is the only app that can sync to the app PaceUp. From what I have seen, it has the same basic functions as the others, tracking progress, distance, pace, HR.

PaceUp

This app I use to track some virtual competitions that I sometimes try to complete. This one has been especially good to use during the Covid19 pandemic that has affected us all during the last year. This app only syncs with Garmin Connect for some reason and is the only reason I Use the Garmin app.

SyncMyTracks

To try and keep all these apps synced, I use an app called "SyncMyTracks", this is an excellent app for syncing training apps (focused on outdoor training like running, biking, walking, and more. You can configure it so that data comes in from several apps and is imported in one single app or record in one single app and import to the other apps.
For example, I only use MapMyRun for running because I can use the app in my clock to track distance and HR, after the run is completed and recorded in the app, SyncMyTrack exports the data from MapMyRun (including GPS data) and after that import it to the other apps.
