Strava Apple Series 2 watch app and watch GPS; running with iPhone also

Team, if I use the Series 2 watch Strava app while also carrying the iPhone (streaming music), will Strave still use the WATCH GPS, or does it default to the phone GPS like the stock Apple activity app? Watch GPS, for me, more accurate than the iPhone app. Yes, I have the saeries 2 watch.

    Hi Rich,

    The Apple Watch Series 2 can and most often will use the phones GPS if the they are connected. Unfortunately, we can't determine when the watch is using the phone's GPS. To prevent the watch from using the phone's GPS, you can consider turning on airplane mode or disabling bluetooth on the phone to accomplish this.

  • Ok, thanks.  Interesting though.  I run a lot.  When I use the stock AW2 app and the iPhone GPS (no airplane mode on watch) on one wrist and my Garmin on the other, the AW2 with iPhone GPS varies usually from 3 to 6 percent compared to my Garmin.  With the AW2 in airplane mode, the watch and GArmin are within .01 each mile lap.  The same experiment with the Strava app and no airplane mode ... each mile lap is also within .01 of the Garmin.  That accuracy lead me to believe the Strave AW2 is using the watch GPS.  MY sample size is small though, just 4 runs .... about 20 miles.  I like to carry my phone connected to both stream music from iPhone (iHeart) and receive notifications while running on my watch.  Heck, otherwise I can just keep using both watches.

  • Also, just to add.... "Runkeeper" AW2 app allows me to chose between AW2 GPS and iPhone GPS WITHOUT having to go into airplane mode.  There AW watch screen is very customizable, as I am sure you know... but does not have the option for mile splits on the watch, so I am sticking with Strava for now.
