Extend Apple Watch battery life with better handling HR sensor when paused/stopped
I love using Strava for tracking my cycling activities. And I love the connection with Apple Watch and it's heart rate sensor. The problem is, that Strava for Apple Watch is a real battery drainer. It cannot even record 6 hrs ride - at the end, the Watch will power down and all battery is eaten.
The problem is, that even when the tracking is Auto-paused or Manually stopped, Strava still measures the heart rate. So when I want to record an uninterrupted ride with some pauses for lunch / snacks and I Stop the recording every time we don't ride, Strava is still eating battery by measuring the HR.
I would suggest to stop measuring HR when the app recording is stopped or auto-paused. This should dramatically prolong the battery life of Apple Watch.
