Health App and Strava

Upload activities recorded with the Apple Workout App to Strava and automatically sync activities from Strava to the Health app.

Connecting Strava and the Apple Health App

  • From your profile, open Settings (gear icon) > Applications, Services, and Devices > Health > Select the plus sign icon.
  • Tap Connect on the next screen.
  • You'll be taken to the Health Access page where you can enable the sharing of data from Strava to Health. You can control which types of information Strava will read and write to Health. You must enable Workouts for the sharing of any data (cycling, running, calories, etc.) to work.
    • After the initial set up, you can modify Strava's Health Access by going into the Health app and clicking on Sources > Strava.

Syncing from Strava to Health

  • Navigate to Settings (gear icon) > Applications, Services, and Devices > Health and toggle Send to Health ON.
  • Strava will send data to Health such as route information, activity type, distance, time, and calories automatically. Please be aware that route information from third-party activities (Garmin, Zwift, etc.) will not sync to Health.

Syncing from Health to Strava

Please be aware that only activities recorded with the Apple Watch Workout app are able to sync to Strava. Activities uploaded to the Health from a third-party will not sync to Strava.

  • Navigate to Settings (gear icon) > Applications, Services, and Devices > Health > toggle Upload from Health ON.
  • Select the option to Import next to any activities you’d like to sync to your Strava account. 
  • If you see a warning that the workout does not have route information, and the activity is an indoor workout, select Import. If the activity is an outdoor workout select Maybe Later and try uploading again later.

  • If you’d like to be notified when there’s a workout ready to be uploaded, navigate to Settings (gear icon) > Applications, Services, and Devices > Health and toggle Notifications for new workouts ON.
  • Each time you open Strava, you’ll see an in-app notification (bell icon) if there’s a Health workout ready to be uploaded.

You can try forcing the activities to sync by force closing the Health app and then scrolling through the "You" feed in the Strava app.
