Heart Rate Announcements/Feedback during recording (mobile)

Dear STRAVA decision maker

In the past I've used a  Polar watch that was set to my Low & High heart rate zones (by setting my age), then during any activity (run/bike ride) I got announcement/warning when I was below/above these values. 
As you've already have the distance Audio announcement I'd like to suggest you אם add
1. Announcement of the heart rate value together with the regular pace announcement that available today. 
2. Warning announcement when the runner exceed this range ( below/above) as by using an old Polar watch. 

Thank you very much for this great App & Best regards 
Itay

  • Seriously guys, just use the Wahoo fitness app (at least until Strava add it - IF they ever do, its been 2 years now!). You can upload your session directly to Strava from within the Wahoo app.

    The audio cues are very customisable and it uses much less battery than Strava does, especially on the iphone with new low power mode.

  • Seriously Chris, my HRM is not recognized by Wahoo fitness. Right now I use Endomondo and I export and upload to Strava to have the data there. Shouldn't be as complicated.

    Not sure why you need to troll here if you don't have this issue. We're all really happy that you're happy with other apps and wish you the best.

  • Endre, I do have the same issue, but Strava don't seem to want to add this functionality right now so just sharing a workaround that works for me and anybody with a Bluetooth HRM. Sorry if it doesn't work for you and apologies if I was getting repetitive!

  • I also find this insane that they don't have this, particularly because this thread is years old. Not to mention they're working on features like comparing year of year performances and PRs? 

    Sure, that's cool, but why would you not focus on the every day need of HR announcements. I love Strava, but without this it makes it hard to use it exclusively, and makes me really doubt whether I need the premium subscription anymore.

  • Bought a HR monitor (Wahoo Tickr per Strava's recommendation) and am only now realizing the limits of this application.

    - My first problem was with storing HR data during a treadmill workout.

    - Apparently the 2nd issue is with real-time HR announcements.

    I'm no guru but this seems like fairly basic functionality. Will try using Wahoo app per other commenter's recommendation. At this point the only thing truly keeping me attached to Strava is the social networking aspect of it.

  • I'm going to go ahead and +1 this.  I just signed up for premium and got a heart rate monitor because I thought it would make HR training easier.  Looks like I got skunked.  I feel like 10 years ago I bought a basic HRM with a watch that handled HR alarms.  If it was basic enough for a watch why can't strava do it?

  • I'd like to see this too. Either audio announcement or a vibration when I change zones. Wahoo Fitness has this in its app, but only for iOS. It's not available for Android which is what I use.

  • I'll add my name to the list of people that signed up for premium assuming this would work. Instead, I'm running MotiFit with Strava just to get real time HR audio feedback. Canceling premium since I need a different app to track HR anyway.

  • I can't begin to tell you how happy I would be if Strava had this functionality of announcing when I went above/below a HR zone. This would allow me to train using my HR zones more effectively. As it currently stands, I attempt to train in my zone, but inevitably over the course of hours my attention frequently drifts. When it does, I stop watching my display, and that's when I fail to notice that my effort has dropped and thus my heartrate with it. If I just had an alert then I might only lose 5bps  instead of drifting down another 10 bps before noticing (and then having to huff back up 15 bps to get back in my zone). That would represent more time in the right zone and better outcomes for my training.

  • I've been following this thread for a while, and yes it would be great, but I'm not holding my breath.  Strava seems to be all about social competitiveness rather than a serious training tool. Even if it is implemented, the way it works probably won't suit everybody.  Different apps and devices deal with heart rate data differently.  I personally don't like a synthesised voice in my phone  talking to me, and often can't hear it anyway with wind or background noise.  A simple beep at  user programmable heart rates would be great.

    The most useful thing I've learnt from this thread is tapiriik.com.  This is a service that will synchronize data between different apps.  Have a look at the list of apps, try some, find one you like, use that app, and use tapiriik to sync the data back to Strava.  I personally like Endomondo.  It works well with my pebble smartwatch.  With Endomondo the fields on the watch are customizable from lots of options, including heart rate (but I do have to glance at the pebble rather than getting audible cues)  Endomondo supports my Zephyr HxM BT heart rate monitor, which Strava no longer does.  (I got this monitor at Strava's recommendation, but last time I looked they have changed things and now they seem to only support BT low energy monitors.)

  • So many +1 for this feature request. I will add mine as well. I use the polar beat app, paired with my H7, but polar does not recognize my foodpod, so I get a choice, voice feedback of heart rate or cadence. 

    Why can we not have both using Strava. Make a good app better.

  • The ALARM indication of the heartbeat threshold limit is not only useful, it is a SAFETY indication, especially for athletes that are not very young.

    All the gears like POLAR and other heart monitors have this feature implemented, including Strava's strongest competitor app (Runtastic), so frankly I don't understand all of this resistance to implement this simple function.

    Strava is great, but because of this feature lack, I'll revert to Runtastic.

    Sorry guys

  • How is this thread still a thing? I love everything about strava except the really uncustomizable audio cues. Hr being the most troublesome, but i also preferred my other cues at. 25 MI or 5 mins or both depending on my workout.

    Can I code this for you? Lol

  • Crazy isn't it.  How long has this been ignored?  I can only think that Strava knows that most people only use their phones for a bit before 'upgrading' to a dedicated GPS device, which would do alerts, and then still shares the data on Strava.

  • Feels kind of stupid to run two apps at the same time, Strava for actually tracking the activity and Runkeeper for HR voice feedback.

  • I really like most the features of Strava and even signed up for the Pro (60 day trail), but looks like I'll need to cancel and go back to Runtastic.  :(

  • Yep.  +1.

    I simply won't use your app for running if it doesn't have this feature, which now takes me out of the entire Strava ecosystem. 

    I had gotten in to it when I was trying Zwift and just got an iphone I now run with. I'll look elsewhere for my tracking app of choice because of this.

    This was feature was on my ratty polar watch a decade ago.  Spend an afternoon coding it in there and build your userbase.

  • Add useful HR notifications, alerts, customization and I'll go for the premium account. Without it, no way.

    This is a necessary feature for good HR training. I'd upgrade to Premium if this was made available. Until then it looks like I have to use something else.
