April 2021: Support was added for the changes to the Huawei data format.
– October 2020: Huawei enforced a password on the requested ZIP data. The web app will not work with these encrypted ZIP files. The conversion procedure has been adapted to manually extract the activities data from the ZIP file for now.

Hitrava Web converts your health activities registered using a Honor or Huawei activity tracker or smart watch in the Huawei Health app into a file format that can be directly uploaded to Strava.
