Splits and Interval training with Cycling Audio Announcements

Hey Guys I love the app and UI but it would great if you could at voice coached interval training similar to what runkeeper has.. even if it is a paid add on.  I prefer Strava to Runkeeper but for intervals i have to turn to Runkeeper. I would rather have only one app to deal with.

  • BIG +1 for this!

    I've switched over from Runkeeper to Strava recently, and I really miss the audio announcements! I would like to have it configurable (like in Runkeeper), so that I can choose when and what I'm hearing. Example:

    • time
    • distance
    • current and/or average speed
    • current and/or average time per kilometer
    • current and/or average heart rate
    • current and/or average cadence
    • current and/or average power

    Cheers!

  • Come on Strava, as a premium member I feel quite happy to tell you to pull your finger out... This feature is key to good interval training regardless of your focus on segments.

     

    SportsTracker is calling me back (and I'm sure would happily welcome my premium subscription...)

  • Hello Strava,

    I can't stress enough how valuable voice feedback during runs/rides are!!!  With mapmyrun or mapmyride you can choose the interval (# of miles or # of km) for receiving the voice updates for the following options, but I want to use Strava exclusively, can we throw these in the app?

    -Total Distance
    -Total Time
    -Average Pace/Speed
    -Current Pace/Speed
    -Split Pace/Speed
    -Heart Rate
    -Time of Day

    And volume control for the voice feedback.

    I've tried running/recording rides using both Strava and MapMyRide (so I can get the best of both worlds), but with the GPS, Strava will lose me and end up generating a straight path here and there once it finds me again, making for a throwaway record of my ride.

    Thank you in advance!

    (PS how will we ever know if they plan on implementing this Voice Feedback feature???)

  • The ability to hear your splits should not be a tough feature to implement. While I think it would be annoying and unnecessary for cycling. where I can have all this information on the cyclocomputer. While running last thing I want to do is to look at my phone.  Audio feed back to current pace and time would really help.

  • I also use Endomondo for interval training with the audio coach and absolutely do not understand why Strava does not have it. Hope they will add it soon...but it is very bad they still not support it..

  • This is one reason why I'm sticking with Runkeeper. What's the point of tracking my workout if I'm not getting announcements for interval training?

  • funny i am getting updates from other people complaining about a lack of this feature yet nobody from strava is in this thread updating us on this future feature...yet based on the interaction from strava product management this might never happen :)

    This is a sad statement about how strava cares for its athletes. I would assume strava gets updated monthly with new functions and someone from strava  is looking at these comments

  • Another user that has to go elsewhere for the run/walk.  Strava is awesome, but lacking in this one area.  Please add!

  • Same here - I use Endomondo for intervals twice a week (running). Its the one thing keeping me from upgrading.

  • Thanks for all the feedback! Besides announcing basic cycling splits, what do folks want to have in regard to interval training voice announcements? What about and when do you want hear announcements? For splits, what distances/times are the best split announcements?

  • Hi Elle, We indeed must have the possibility to create intervals we all like so make them personal and not only standard. Please check how Endomondo does this. There it is great. See also information in this link: http://blog.endomondo.com/tag/audio-coach/ I hope you really add it soon because it is bad a company as Strava still does not have this ..

  • @Elle Anderson : " For splits, what distances/times are the best split announcements? "

    My answer would be CUSTOM ones, and available for both time and distance in the same workout.

    One would hope that you take a look at the what the competition is doing once in a while. Here's a link to the RunKeeper one:

    https://support.runkeeper.com/hc/en-us/articles/201827433-Creating-One-Off-Workouts

    Download the app and give it a try.

     

    This thread is about splits and interval training, but some people have mentioned audio cues as well so here's the link for RunKeeper: https://support.runkeeper.com/hc/en-us/articles/201109396-The-Audio-Cue-Guide

    Personally, the only thing preventing me from getting a Strava premium account is the lack of interval workouts. I'll stick with RunKeeper as my default app in the meantime.

    For those who are using a different app than Strava but want to keep their activities synched give this a try: https://tapiriik.com/

  • Is this dead? Having audio announcement for intervals would be great, you don't even need to look down at your computer to know what you need to do.

  • I wonder if they'll pay more attention on here if we start swearing... STRAVA, WHY ARE YOU NOT TREATING THE PEOPLE WHO ARE COMMENTING HERE AS THE PEOPLE YOU ARE ABOUT TO LOSE AS VALUED CUSTOMERS???!

  • :-( .. I thought there was a problem with my phone, spent hours trying to fix it..

    I just changed from runkeeper to strava premium hoping somehow this feature would become available. too bad..

    Guys, seriously, make it CLEAR that strava does not support announcements when cycling. If i knew it, I would not giving up on runkeeper premium.
    *******One year later and no update?********

    Honestly, the feature list is misleading. Let the route plan give the impression of support to (turn by turn) navigation and is not clear that it lacks such a basic feature as cycling announcements.

    Getting back to the quest on finding a better cycling app.

  • Map my ride - free - announcements

    Strava - free - no announcements - premium - no announcements

    It didn't work for me under the free part of the app so upgraded to premium to fix this issue because the app clearly states "Real-time segment announcements - premium only". What an absolute load of BS!

  • Strava has informed me that they currently have NO plans on adding real time voice feedback/segment announcements, it's crazy to me that they don't want to add this feature so many of us want.  Spread the word, ask others to request this feature, if enough of us rally behind it, then maybe they will choose to start developing/integrating this into the app.

  • Based on Carl Voss's comment, have tried Wahoo App for first time today, and absolutely love the customisable audio announcements!!!  It also uploads the ride back to Strava, so I only need the Strava app on my phone now to view my segments after the ride. 

    If Starva ever get their finger out wrt split announcements, then I may switch back to their app - but I can't see them doing a better job than Wahoo.

  • What a shite app. No split time announcements for cyclists. But it's ok to have them as a runner. I like the segments, but won't pay to go premium just to get announcements. Map My Ride, and Endemondo offer them for free. I use their apps now. Pull your finger out Strava, and keep up with the competition at least.

  • adding another voice to this request.  

    i've been so impressed with your app in so many ways.  this, to me, is the only lacking feature.  i'm just starting to get into cycling and having audio cues every half mile to inform me on my pace would be extremely useful.  i get caught up in the excitement of riding and forget to maintain my desired pace.  it would be a huge help if strava had just some basic cues every mile or half mile for cycling.

  • Started using strava for cycling after years of using RunKeeper. If it had the audio cue versatility that RunKeeper has, I would switch over 100% for running as well, but my robot coach is too important to me. I can't go it alone.

  • Love the Screen, BIG Speed display. 

    Beyond Stupid NOT to have the Audio Cue's Biking, where somebody could have an external PowerPack to power all the GPS/Audio etc...  

    They collect all sorts of data for Indoor Virtual Bike Trainers. 

    I'd pay for an app that compared my best ride WHILE I was riding.

    No motivation looking at the comparison AFTER the ride.

    Customer Support says they are a small company and the extra code it would take is too much.  ????  

    Yes, they think very small.

    Off to try endomondo...   Bye Strava.

  • I have used adidas micoach in the past and was great for planning and setting out interval training and blue voice coach you to the right speed or heart rate zone - you could choose from your favourite sports star voices too. It was extremely useful.

  • Hi Elle,
    It's mostly about being able to set and follow some intervals work (say 10 x 1 min hard / 2 min, or 20 minutes inside a certain pace window) and have an audio signal at the start and end of each interval. An update of pace and time during the interval would be nice as well as a visual breakdown of the intervals/pace/time afterwards. I'm happy with the way endomondo do it, but there is plenty of room to improve that as well.

    Lots of your competition have this feature and I often train with both strava and endomondo running so that I can do interval training effectively. Putting this in place would mean strava performs all the functions I routinely use.

    Thanks for looking at this...

  • Hi if I could get announcements of Current Distance, Overall Average speed, Last Split Time & Average Speed, that would be great!

  • I want to hear:

    • Current distance
    • Split speed (km/h)
    • Split time 
    • Average speed
    • Current real time

    I use my morning commute for training and so the current real time is useful. I currently use MapMyRide which is working well for me, and experimented with Strava but with this feature missing I am not going to switch over.
