We've seen a few reports of the Strava App failing to auto-pause when the phone is stationary, causing the Activity's total moving time to be more than it should be.
Keep in mind that you'll need to be completely stationary for auto-pause to activate: entering a building and walking around while taking a break from your activity can un-pause and resume the activity recording. In these situations, we recommend manually pausing your recording.
Why this happens:
If your GPS is functioning poorly, it will jump around making it seem like you are moving when you are in fact stationary. The Strava app's auto-pause requires an accurate GPS signal in order to detect stopped time. In other words, this issue is not with the Strava app's auto-pause feature, but instead with the GPS data given to the Strava app which is disrupting the feature's expected behavior.
As far as we can tell, this issue is not isolated to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and can happen with any mobile phone if the GPS signal is weak or inaccurate.
To address this unexpected behavior with Strava's auto-pause feature:
- Please consult these GPS troubleshooting recommendations.
- Consider disabling the auto-pause feature. When you save your activity to Strava, we automatically take out any resting time.
