On my weekly activity list, swim workouts do not calculate activity points. Is this an error?

    Sadly you do not get activity points during swimming.
    Only activities that have the heart rate enabled give you Activity Points

    Activity points are based on calculated VO2Max, which is only available with HR data. Since swimming has no HR data (the sensor is unreliable in the water and BT straps do not transmit through water) there is no way to get activity points. Only running and cycling activities produce activity points.

    I hope this helps answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
