If you record Strava activities with WHOOP, you can automatically upload your activities by connecting your accounts. Once connected to Strava, cardio-based activities logged on WHOOP will automatically upload. Please note that this does exclude Strength Trainer and Recovery Activities. Data that will be included in the upload is your heart rate data, WHOOP metrics, and GPS route data, if available.
Connect WHOOP to Strava
- Make sure your WHOOP app is up-to-date.
- Open the WHOOP app and go to the More icon on the bottom-right of the screen.
- On iOS: scroll down and select App Settings > Integrations. On Android: under Account & Settings, select Integrations.
- Select Strava.
- Select Connect and authorize the connection to Strava. If you don't have the Strava app installed, you will be prompted to log in through the Strava web app.
- Toggle Allow All or select which categories you would like to share between WHOOP and Strava.
- Heart Rate Graph view
- Strain view
- Training State view
After connecting Strava, you will see a green check box on the Integrations page, and Strava will appear in the connected section. Your WHOOP activities will now automatically be posted to Strava.
Connecting the WHOOP Band as a Heart Rate Monitor
The Whoop band can be used as a Bluetooth monitor to broadcast heart rate while recording with the Strava mobile app.
On the home screen, tap the WHOOP strap icon in the upper-right corner of your screen. Then, toggle on broadcast Heart Rate at the bottom of the screen
- From the Strava App, select Record from the bottom navigation menu > settings (gear icon). Learn more about Pairing Sensors with the Strava app.
Double-check that your Whoop is in broadcast mode if you see the WHOOP connected, but your heart rate isn't being recorded.
My WHOOP band is not sending consistent heart rate data to Strava.
This may be due to an issue with your WHOOP device broadcasting heart rate data. Please try removing the band from your wrist and letting it go to sleep for 30 seconds until you see no more flashing lights. After waking the band back up, pair it again through the WHOOP app on your mobile device.
What data is exported?
WHOOP will share the following data from all activities:
- Activity Type
- Elapsed Time
- Heart rate
- Day Strain
- Recovery score
- GPS data (only sent if "Track Route” in Strain Target was enabled or if GPS-enabled activity was imported into WHOOP via Apple Health)
- Metrics calculated from GPS data, such as distance and pace, are calculated by Strava based on the GPS data uploaded
How do I disable automatic activity uploads from WHOOP to Strava?
To disable automatic uploads, open the WHOOP app and navigate to the menu. Next, open the Integrations menu and select Strava. From there, tap the Disconnect button to stop sharing data. If you want to stop the uploads without disconnecting from Strava, you have the option to toggle off the integration, as well as select which activity types you would like to be shared.
Why do I get a 404 error when trying to integrate with Strava?
You won't be able to access the Strava integration until you've finished the initial 4-day calibration period and unlocked Strain Target on day 5. If you try to integrate before this period is up, you may receive a '404' error. After unlocking Strain Target, you can enable the Strava integration.
