Current speed, cadence, heart rate, and power via Live Stats (Premium)

When recording, Premium members will see speed, cadence, heart rate, and power as real-time values instead of averages. Runs will still use average pace.

  • How do I change the app so it uses my Wahoo speed sensor to track speed instead of GPS? GPS is the less preferred option when I ride on the road, but for obvious reason doesn't work at all when I use my indoor trainer during the winter. Would really like to use the Strava app during my indoor training rides, but if I can't do this the premium membership isn't worth it.

  • Elle, would you have an answer to the question raised by Doug? I'm also interested to learn how a Wahoo speed sensor can be used to track - or actually only show the speed in Strava Live based on wheel revolutions instead of GPS?

  • I have a third to that request. I find that the GPS speed sensor can tell I'm stationary on by bike while on a trainer so it goes into auto pause. Cadence still works but it won't record speed data from the speed sensor.

  • Is current heart rate announced with a voice, or just displayed on a screen for premium users?

  • so I'm confused , so we will need a power meter and heart rate monitor right?
