I use both Garmin Connect and Strava but haven't linked the accounts because I don't need one more thing to be a pain. I haven't had any issues uploading to Strava directly through the device.

I wear it in the office and I don't care. I want people to know that I'm a serious cyclist and I am ready to ride at ANY given moment.
