    Just wanted to post this for the few folks on here that use iSR in combination with Garmin (mostly to get their data onto Nike).

    Apparently Garmin changed something last week that broke iSR's ability to upload data onto Garmin. Their FB page is indicating a fix sometime this week.

    That is all.

    I use RunGap to move/share workout data between several sites, and last week RunGap stated that Garmin changed the way their logon worked, and killed RunGap. They (RunGap) had a fix out the next day, so it's back working now with the new fix. Not sure if ISR is one of the accounts listed that you can move data to/from, but might want to check it out.

    I'm interested in what you mean by "mostly to get their data onto Nike". Is there a way to upload workout run info from another app on to Nike Run Club?

    RunGap will do this, but you would need the $1.99/Quarter Premium version I believe. Check out RunGap, awesome for moving data around.

    That's good to hear it's a know issue and will be fixed. I was wondering if it was a problem on my end. Thanks for the info.

    There are no apps that can directly export data into Nike. Nike closed their publicAPI a while ago and then killed off the unofficial API soon after.

    Neither iSR or RunGap can export into NikeRunClub.

    The workaround is to use GarminConnect. There is an official "partnership" between Nike and Garmin where you can link your Nike and Garmin accounts. Anything that gets posted to Garmin, will transfer over to Nike.

    Garmin has kept their publicAPI's open, so 3rd party apps can still export data into Garmin Connect. iSR (and apparently RunGap) can export into Garmin, although iSR hasn't issued a fix for whatever Garmin did last week to break the API.

    So what I do is to record my runs with iSR. After the run, I export the data to Garmin. Garmin then auto-transfers the run to Nike.

    Oops, my bad. I did not know this, I don't use either Nike Run Club, or I Smooth Run, I was just going by the list of "accounts" in RunGap.

    UPDATE - Apparently iSR posted an app update yesterday. Just downloaded and was able to export my last 3 runs into Garmin, which then transferred to Nike.
