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.

  • So many people talked to me about Strava. How is this app great.
    And I have to say Yes - the feature that I like most is segments.

    BUT

    Neither now 2019 they are not allowed with AW4.
    So there is almost no reason to stay with strava. There are so many apps that have better interface, that let you really make your plan (not that joke with Strava premium plans, where you cant even change in what day You will run long runs. It must to be Sunday :D )

    AW4 needs segments, needs maps, ...
    than it will be really great app.

  • Hello! On my Apple watch 4, in the strava application, there is no possibility of choosing the training “swimming in the pool”. How can I change this? I need this opportunity! Thank.

  • When will I be able to see the map on my phone and ride metrics on my watch?

  • Just to add my voice to everyone else's above - it would be great to see the Strava Apple Watch app develop further.

    Specifically it would be great to have:

    - a more appealing stats screen that's shown during activity recording, ideally that's customizable

    - live segments

    - overall be less buggy

  • Is someone still waiting for a Strava official statement about the future of the apple watch App ?

    I think your latest 'partnerships' with Suunto and Garmin speak by themselves. Apple watch is clearly not a priority for you. Take their money, that's fair, but you won't get mine anymore.

    You're losing the spirit of what made Strava so special at the beginning (you built a great concept initially based on Apple products). I signed up in 2013, subscribed Premium in 2014. I know you won't miss my 50€ that much, but the way you ignore AW users requests means you don't care or simply can't build a real app on this device.

  • Hello, I have the newest Apple Watch. It stopped syncing in strava today. I have uninstalled on both my iPhone and watch. I reinstalled and followed all instructions to set up. I now cannot start an activity on the watch. Any ideas to solve? Everything online suggested I have tried.

    Thanks
    Andrew Macphail.

  • Why can’t I record a swim on the Strava app on my Apple Watch 4?

  • In the last week, I've been experiencing a new, rather permanent issue with the Watch app. It is crashing 100% of the time I open the app, dropping me back to the watch face. I've tried rebooting the watch, uninstalling/reinstalling the watch app but to no avail. I have the latest version of the app. Is there a new bug that was introduced and if so, any ETA on resolving it? Thank you!

  • Stephen - I experienced the same thing.  It turned out my watch needed to be updated, even though I hadn't gotten a notification.  If you update the watch, Strava should start working again.

  • Guys. Just dont use strava for track your activity.
    There is much more better alternatives / iSmoothrun (amazing for customised workouts) or Workoutdoors (with offline vector maps).
    Strava is great platform for connecting runners. But its not ideal for track your activity.

  • I also have terrible reliability issues with the watch app. I went for a bike ride and 30 minutes into it, I look at my watch to see how far I’ve gone and it showed 0.1 miles. Outstanding! The app will crash randomly during a workout as well. I simply use the iPhone app to record runs and rides.

    I’m equally disappointed they haven’t added swimming. I have to run the VERY reliable Apple app during the swim, then manually enter the data into Strava. That’s silly.

  • Apple watch doesn’t work if you sign in with Facebook- it just tells you to log in - rubbish

  • I have a new problem that recently appeared. When I start Strava on my Apple Watch series 2, it tells me to log into Strava on my iPhone. But, I am already logged into Strava on my phone. The only way to get past the message on my watch is to uninstall the watch app (in the Watch app on the iPhone) and then reinstall it. It then gives me the same message, but with a button at the bottom that allows the Watch app to proceed.

  • Same problem as Brian Gribb but if I log out on iPhone and then log in it shows up on my watch. A big hassle each time I want to use it.

  • When are people going to realise that Strava on the Apple Watch is just not a great option. Either buy a Garmin, use the native app or get over it 🍻👍

  • It's not about other devices being better, it's about Strava supporting the devices they claim to connect to.  I dropped my subscription because the support was lacking. I don't have any interest in buying another device.

  • Same as the last few comments, my formerly pretty reliable Apple Watch app has started asking me to set it up frequently. I’d estimate it as about once a day but I wouldn’t swear to it. As others have said, it’s a frustrating interaction when I am already logged in and the phone app says the watch is paired.

    This morning it seemed to be related to me using my phone and AirPods for a call. Once I got off the call, the watch app figured it out and showed the expected UI. Maybe this was a coincidence, but I was wondering if the AirPods and watch were fighting over the Bluetooth connection?

    It’s a strange bug that seems to have crept in with either an Apple or Strava update. I’d be happy to try to supply more info if that will help to troubleshoot. Have a good day!

  • Isn't it ridiculous that we have 30 pages of negative feedback on the Apple Watch app and not a single reply from Strava on this?  I take this as a sure sign that we can all whistle dixie on a solid app ever appearing.  This is just silly.  We are all wasting time posting our complaints on here.

  • In my case, AirPods were certainly not a contributing element; I don’t own any. 

    I wasn’t able to find how to sign out of Strava in the iPhone app, so my strategy has been to reinstall the Watch app.

  • Just thought I would pass this along for those still having problems with the Strava Apple Watch App. I had some similar and other complaints with it and finally found another app "WorkOutDoors" which allows you to customize your screens and see lots of useful data like elevation, pace, cadence, maps, routes, etc... and can also be connected to Strava so you can upload your activity after you are done. It became my favorite Apple Watch app. Hope it helps some of you.

  • I am also getting this new issue where Strava on my Watch tells me to log in on the app on my iPhone, which is already logged in.

    This has issue has been present on at least the last three releases of Strava.

  • 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.

  • My son was doing a workout this morning with Apple 5 watch on which he started from, while doing his workout and going in a defined route , I myself put my sons phone in my pocket while I walked round fields , every so often I crossed over field to pick up cones etc when he had finished an exercise

    once my son had finished he stopped and saved on Apple Watch and I took his phone out my pocket and seen notification on Strava app on his phone to edit and save 

     

    what we noticed when saved was that not only was the time considerably more than previous but graph was all over the place 

    With me having my sons phone in my pocket while I was walking all over the field could this have put my sons times and graphs all over the place ?

  • I wanted a new running watch and sadly went with the Apple Watch series 5! Despite trying numerous settings etc the distance isn’t recording correctly. On most runs around 5-6mile it’s at least half a mile out. Very frustrating as I’ve resorted to having to carry my phone and use the app on there.

    Is this an app issue or my watch?
