New Strava app for Apple Watch to support Series 2+

We are excited to release an updated Strava app which supports standalone recording using the built-in GPS of the Apple Watch Series 2+. 

Please note: To support the GPS in the Apple Watch Series 2+, we redesigned the app to work separately from the phone. Even if your watch still connects to the GPS from your phone, the app functions independently on the watch.

If you're experiencing technical troubles installing, recording, or syncing Apple Watch activities, please contact us directly by submitting a ticket at the bottom of this post.

  • The heart rate monitor is not recording - or partially recording - for outdoor runs or walks from the Apple Watch. Workouts do record completely. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the App but it hasn’t fixed the issue. Sometimes a single heartbeat is recorded and then just a straight line. How can I fix this?

  • I have exactly the same problem for months now. The heart rate monitor on my Apple watch is not recording for outdoor runs or indoor runs. It does however record for other activities such as workout. I have unintalled and reinstalled the app on both my iphone and Apple watch and restarted my phone and the watch, unpaired and repaired many times for no avail. Please let us know how to fix this problem.

  • Please allow us to use routes and segments on Apple Watch 2+. I am running a series 4 and I don't want to have to carry my phone to do this.
