We understand that you might be using other fitness devices to track your activity. That’s why we created our GPX/TXC import feature! It’s designed for people with activity data saved on other devices or systems who want want to import those activities into their ASICS Runkeeper app account. 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 the Runkeeper app 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.
