Apple Watch Series 2

Hi, 

Have to ask the question, as Apple hinted that the GPS in the new watch will allow access to developers. Will Strava look at a native Apple Watch app which uses the GPS on the watch?

    Just for you, we've released the updated Apple Watch app early, before officially announcing it. Go ahead and give it a try, and if you have feedback for us please leave it here

  • Same question here .. when can we expect the Strava Apple Watch app updated to utilize the integrated GPS in the Series 2 watches.  Sounds like the Nike app will support it immediately.

  • Ditto here, Strava!  Went for first run this morning with new Series 2 Apple Watch and launched Strava, only to realize that it won't work without iPhone.  I rarely run with my phone and don't plan to start.  I suspect its a matter of time before Strava updates the watch app to allow independent runs with the watch only. 

    Any plans in the pipeline?

  • From what I've read, there's still no way to export workouts from Apple's Health app into Strava, so you basically have to use the Strava app (or another 3rd party app) to record your workout if you want to be able to export it anywhere else.

    Is that something that can be addressed now that iOS 10 and watchOS 3 are out or is it an issue of Apple not granting the necessary permissions to access the data?

  • For those of you who have requested access to our beta app: We are releasing the new version of Strava for Apple Watch so soon that it's easier for us if all of you wait for the public version. However, we appreciate the offers and interest on this thread to help us test the new app.

  • Would be really useful to be able to leave that phone @ home during the run.

  • Strava, love your app and love being a premium member but hate that this hasn't already been addressed.  Can you please update the app on the Apple Watch Series 2 to enable us to use the app without the phone?

  • I am interested in this as well. I'm picking up the iWatch Series 2 on Friday (3 days from now). Would be a nifty device to support.

  • I was expecting this to be ready shortly after the Apple Watch 2 release. Either this or Strava being able to automatically take a feed from an Apple Watch activity - exactly as it does from Garmin GPS enabled watches.  Any news or ideas very welcome

  • I'm super interested in the Swim functionality with the new Apple Watch. Will I be able to record my swims on Strava? Thx.

  • Actually, you can use both Nike NRC and Strava. Got my Nike+ Watch yesterday and confirmed the following with a quick run this morning.

    1. Use the Nike NRC watch app for the run. It records GPS location and heart rate data from the watch.
    2. The NRC watch app syncs with the iPhone and then uploads to the Nike service. Here's my run this morning, but I don't see any way to mark it as public, so it may not be viewable by others: https://www.nike.com/us/en_us/p/myactivity/activity/1dc3aa1b-6cf6-4229-aaf5-5bfa82323122
    3. Use the RunGap app on the iPhone to export from Nike+ and then upload to Strava. This step is at least semi-manual. You can configure RunGap to automatically download from Nike+ on launch, but uploading to Strava is manual. Here's info on RunGap: http://www.rungap.com
    4. Here's the run after syncing to Strava: https://www.strava.com/activities/759269411

    This seems like a reasonable process to me, though I wish the syncing could be fully automatic (e.g. via tapiriik.com).

    The NRC app is quite usable; I like it slightly better than the stock Workouts app (which I also think is pretty good.) The display is much more readable during the run, and I like the audible splits every mile. (I can hear the Apple watch speaker fine even in traffic, so there's no need to bother with headphones.) The disadvantage of the NRC is, as far as I can tell, there's no way to take a manual lap (i.e. double tap on the display with the Workouts app), but maybe there's a gesture I haven't found yet. On the other hand, NRC can do guided workouts (e.g. intervals) with voice guidance, but, as far as I can tell, you're limited to the workouts that the NRC training program defines; you can't create your own intervals.

    Other differences between the NRC app and the Workouts app:

    1. GPS data from the NRC run isn't stored in Apple Health. It is stored in the NRC iPhone app, so you can view it there, but if you're hoping for some future iPhone app (like maybe even Strava's own app!) being able to read GPS data from Apple Health, you'd have to use the Workouts app and not NRC. (Note that NRC does store other info about the run in Apple Health, just not the GPS track.)
    2. The Workouts app makes an attempt at recording cadence from the watch accelerometer. The accuracy seems questionable in my experience, but the data is there. The NRC app doesn't record any cadence information.

    Bottom line is that, for me, I'm okay with using NRC for now. Presumably Strava will eventually get around to updating their iOS app to read workout data from Apple Health, at which point I'll probably switch back to using the stock Workouts app. Honestly, I don't see a whole lot of utility in Strava continuing to develop/support their own Apple Watch app. The stock Workouts app seems perfectly acceptable to me, and if you don't like that app there are already alternatives (e.g. NRC, Pear, and, soon, iSmoothRun; presumably others too.)

  • +1 for an update for the Strava Watch app!

    I will be switching from my Garmin 235 once Strava allows using GPS in the new watch.

  • I think it's pretty safe to assume that, if the GPS functionality is open for third-party developers to use, it is 100% in Strava's interest to provide support for it in their Watch app. I am keenly interested to see this integration come to fruition, and won't be upgrading to a Series 2 watch without it. Hopefully then, I will be able to ditch my Garmin watch in favor of wearing the Apple Watch full time. Between the recent updates to both watchOS and the Strava app, it's getting pretty close.

  • Sorry folks, you know the deal. When we are ready to release news about Strava and the Apple Watch 2 standalone GPS app, you'll be first to hear about it. In the meantime, we're making progress on this topic at Strava HQ, so thanks for your patience.

  • Today is January 6th.
    It's "early 2017" ! :-)

    I'm wondering what calendars at Strava's define as "early 2017".

    Can't wait! Greetings!

  • I'm also keen to see this functionality expanded and use my new watch with Strava directly.

  • Where's Strava's response to this?  Did I miss something?

  • Let's make this happen! I picked up the Watch 2 Series for the Built in GPS. Found out day one that Apple Activity Tracker does NOT export to strava which is a major weakness. I would also like to see Swimming Added to the "Switch Sports" feature on the Watch itself. Strava your # 1 and we know you can do this!

  • I'd be happy to participate as an Alpha or Beta tester. Got the Series 2 in the hopes that you'd have your app updated quickly. Upgraded to premium and everything to be prepared!!

  • Is there any update here?

    Kind of disappointed there hasn't been more open communications from the company about their plans with this feature. If you are keeping quiet hoping for some big reveal that will delight users I'm sorry to tell you that ship has sailed. There is no excited mounting anticipation, only growing frustration with every passing day without an announcement of some sort (or a timeline, or the actual feature release).

  • Honestly, at this point, if @Strava just enabled the ability to read Apple Health's Workouts (same as MFP, Garmin, etc.), I'd be happy as a temporary fix. If we could sync between @Garmin and @Strava apps before, I don't see why this would be difficult. Right now, when using my new Apple Watch though, the @Strava app is worthless to me. I'm not going to run with my phone. 

    If @Strava doesn't update soon, I'll be cancelling my @Strava subscription and moving along to something like Runkeeper, who has already updated their app...

  • @ Matthew S

    I was having the same issue with RunGap not exporting GPS data from my Nike+ runs and found the problem.

    In RunGap, you need to make sure that import is DISABLED for Apple's Health app. Otherwise, what happens is that RunGap uses the activity data from Health instead of the activity data from Nike+ and when you export you won't get the GPS data.

    If you click on an activity in RunGap and scroll all the way down, there should be a field called "Source" and that should say "Nike+" and not "Health".

     

    Also, I found that exporting as a TCX file from RunGap and then importing into Strava gave me more accurate data than exporting as a GPX file...I am not sure why, but the TCX file matched the activity duration and pace from Nike+ and provided more accurate elevation data. Not sure if others have had the same experience.

  • For those of you who have asked about activities recorded with the Health app (as a native Apple Watch activity tracker) syncing to Strava: 

    Currently, we sync some Strava metrics to the Health app. However, we do not currently sync any data the other way, like activities, from Health to Strava. We could - and it is up for discussion, in the early stages.

    If you support this development, I recommend starting a new thread to be more effective in adding your support to that specific discussion. Thanks!
