News Google is finally catching up to Apple and Garmin on fitness-tracking data

This sounds promising, for those of us who gambled on the Pixel Watch/Fitbit setup and have been left wanting more professional tools without having a second sports watch. Three things I'd like to see them fix though...
1. When I record a pool swim the summary calls it an outdoor swim. Small, but annoying.
2. The 'auto detect' for activities is fine, but if you say yes to recording it only starts at that very moment, and not back at the start of your walk/run etc - even though it knows when that was in order to give you the prompt.
3. Better activity sharing with Strava - weights, elliptical and no doubt many others don't auto calibrate and need a third-party solution to share with Strava
