We have created this service to facilitate the portability of sports data from our DECATHLON products to Strava, for example, but also to be able to group sports activities from other manufacturers (Garmin, Polar, Fitbit...) within your DECATHLON applications.

Which services are uni-directional ?

No - even if you tracked the same activity on multiple devices, or with multiple apps, Hub by DECATHLON will see that and won't create any duplicate activities.
What data gets synchronized?
As much as possible: in addition to your path, Hub by DECATHLON will also sync distance, speed, heart rate, cadence, power, calories burned and even temperature between all services which support them.
The activity statistics changed after a sync!
Discrepancies in activity statistics, like elevation gained/lost or calories burned, appear when services use different algorithms to calculate the same values. Hub by DECATHLON does not calculate these during synchronization.

No. Simple as that.
