Sync Structured Swim and Strength Workouts to Garmin
Currently, I build my run and bike workouts in TP but I have to build my swim and strength workouts in Garmin Connect because the swim workouts that I build in TP will not sync to my garmin watch. This is very frustrating. This is probably the biggest reason I have not bought a triathlon training plan.
agreed with everyone, this is super frustrating
Adding my vote here as well. I like the TP platform but have held off on buying an annual premium because of this issue.
My understanding is that the limiter here is TP, not GC (please correct me if I'm wrong). Please prioritize this feature as it's currently very frustrating to recreate my workouts using Garmin's workout builder.
I would like to add my voice to the chorus of disappointment surrounding the inability to transfer swim (and brick!) workouts from Training Peaks to Garmin Connect. Had I known of this problem, I wouldn't have bought a triathlon programme, and I won't buy one again unless the problem is fixed.

Please, make Structured Workouts Builder to work with swimming workouts and export them to Garmin Connect.
Adding automatic sync of swim and strength units between TP and Garmin would be amazing and is a huge gap currently compared with other platforms (like Todays Plan) where feature is available. I am really surprised that TP has not implemented this yet.
Yes that would be amazing!!
I'm requesting this feature both as an athlete and a coach. My swim workout library is painful to manage without a workout builder feature that can sync to Garmin. While I can use the builder I'm very concerned that if I build the workouts there they will not work once the sync feature is available (the parameters are different for rests from the Garmin site).
Right now, I have static swim workouts that I either have to adjust the times for manually (takes a lot of time) or just give ranges of effort (which is not as valuable to the athlete).
I know https://peaksware.uservoice.com/forums/106657-trainingpeaks-customer-feedback/suggestions/42031669-sync-structured-swim-and-strength-workouts-to-garm request is out there, but wanted to add this as SWIM priority... I use TrainHeroic for strength, which meets my needs.
At the risk of sounding salty I see a lot of features being added that don't seem to add a bunch of value as a coach. Adding this feature would be a MASSIVE enhancement that would improve workflow. Please consider.
