Garmin or Strava

Garmin Connect:
– has some personal best records
– has weekly goals
– can download courses directly to the garmin
– not very social

Strava:
– no personal records
– no weekly goals without Premium
– no download of gpx file without Premium
– more social

I want Strava to let me have more records (best 5km, 10km, 20km etc, elevation, segments). Their social aspect beats Garmin but Garmin’s records beat Strava. When I’m biking I’m trying to beat me. He’s the target but he can only be that target if he has a time. Numbers motivate me. The day Strava let me have some personal records is the day I will upgrade.

Current goal: 1000km in August. Have done 568 so far so it’s very doable.
