Steps on Strava

Strava users can see the number of steps they take during walking activities. This means that in addition to tracking your distance, pace, and route on walk activities, you'll also be able to see your step count.

At this time, steps are only available on walk activities. If your activity wasn’t recorded or synced as a walk initially you can change the sport type by following these instructions.

Compatible Devices

Step data will be available for all walk activities recorded on the Strava mobile app and Apple Watch app. If you sync your walk activities from Apple Health, you’ll need to ensure you’ve allowed Strava to read step data by following these steps: 

    • From the Strava mobile app: Settings > Applications, Services, and Devices > Health > Toggle Steps on
    • From your phone settings: Health > Data Access & Devices > Strava > Toggle Steps on

If you're using a third-party device to record your walk, Strava will still be able to track your steps as long as the device sends step count data to Strava. Supported devices include:

    • Garmin
    • Coros Apex, Pace, and Vertix
    • Zwift Run
    • Suunto 9 Baro

Please note that, at this time, step data will not sync from Wahoo.
