Apple Watch 3 live features

Now that the Apple Watch 3 is with us and has LTE support, I'm thinking of replacing my old Garmin and buying one.

Questions I'd like answered are :

1. Is there any way to have live segments on the Apple watch 3? If not, is this being actively developed?

2. Is there any way to get audio prompts from the Strava app on apple watch 3, so that I can pre-load a route and the watch will prompt me where to go?

3. Are there audio prompts on the current apple watch app that gives you feedback on anything?

Thanks in advance.

    Audio announcements (for splits only) are in the works for all Apple Watches, not just the 3. We don't have plans to support route navigation. 

    Live segment notifications are not currently planned, but we're definitely considering support for this in the future. 

    Thanks and stay tuned.

  • Hi George,

    No, no, and no, unfortunately. And while I don't represent Strava, I can share what the last year has been like for me, as an Apple Watch 2 owner. 

    First off, I'm a very regular and avid runner and cyclist. I love tracking all my rides and runs. However, I wouldn't say I'm 'serious' about the accuracy. To clarify, the apple watch isn't comparable to a Garmin. If you want accuracy to 2 decimal points, multi-sport, Triathlon, ultra marathons, voice prompts, beacon, wayfinding, or any kind of customization at all, then you will be disappointed. 

    That said, I love my apple watch. For me, it was a trade off from my old Garmin. I miss many of the Garmin features, but I also like all the other apple watch features. And as I said, I'm not too fussy. Best would be to own both, but that would be a pricy option. 

    Lastly, do not expect Strava to devote much time in developing or updating their app for the Apple watch. Over the last year, there has been little to celebrate, as they only have released incremental updates (even though they use whole version numbers, currently at 19.0.0) and bug fixes are super slow. So if you think you'll buy it and hope for voice prompts, my suggestion is don't. The Nike running app has voice feedback, I believe, but they won't let you export your data to Strava. 

    Hope this helps. As I say, I love my Apple watch, but it's no Garmin Replacement, and Strava has no intention of making it so.

  • I have the Apple 3 watch.. .first apple watch... and have used Garmin for a long time thinking this will be a great transition along with everything else this watch is able to do.  Well.....  All I can get is the notification on the watch telling me to sign in to Strava on my iPhone and set up the watch... here is the problem... it is asking for permission for my Motion and Fitness but won't give any option.  When clicked on my phone it takes me to the strava settings and I have tried ever combo to get it to accept my choices.   But nothing.  I know tech and usually can get around these little issues but nothing so far.   I have reached out to Strava and so far have just got the ... uninstall and reinstall... etc etc...   Tried but no success so far.   If there is someone out there that has this working I would sure be interested how and see what I'm missing.   

     

    Once they update or I get it working I'll report back!  Till then ... nothing to report yet.   Garmin still works as I expect!

  • Hi Elle, thanks for the response. I am experiencing the same issue as the gentlemen above:

    “.....

  • After going here and enabling this a full restart of the iphone strava is now working beautifully on apple watch 3,
    seems to require a kick:

    1. Go to your phone’s settings
    2. Tap “Privacy”
    3. Tap “Motion Activity”

  • Just got Apple Watch 3.  Used to record a ride segment this morning.  I was thinking when completed it would sync with the iOS app, and the segment would appear in my results on Strava.  It tells me it's syncing and then I get a pop up on the IPhone Strava telling me to open the app as the upload is complete.  I've resynced and restarted the watch and iOS app on the phone several times.

    I don't see the segment itself, only the total miles have been added to my weekly total.  That's it.

    So those of you that use Strava on the Apple Watch, shouldn't I at least see the segment and the segment details in the app once it syncs?  I'm a little confused how this is supposed to work.  The segment is saved in the history on the Apple Watch, and obviously uploaded something if the mileage total shows up, but nothing else.

    Appreciate any help or advice.

  • My apple watch 3 doesn't show my heartrate while I'm running. The line of the symbol moves though. I checked the Healthapp on my iPhone and it looks like everything is okay according to some sources on the web. Is there a solution?

    Update: After uninstalling and re-installing Strava app on my iPhone and Watch a few times heartrate display still don't work. 

    Iphone 7 IOS11, WatchOS4 

     

    Issue is solved. The trick was to set the watch back to factory settings.

  • I just got my series 3 yesterday but haven’t used it yet to post a ride. It sounds like I won’t be able to leave my phone at home until an appropriate update comes out. I definitely need to track elevation gain and have the route upload too. I really hope something is planned because I was counting on it

  • I have also recently got the Apple Watch 3. Used it on Friday and it worked perfectly, as well as Monday morning. On Monday afternoon I received a message on the watch app telling me 'to sync your activity, make sure Apple Watch is connected to your phone'. I've restarted both devices and they're definitely connected as I'm receiving text messages etc. I pressed sync again just now and the ride seems to have now disappeared from my history, so I'm guess I pressed the delete button by mistake for some reason, so I'm a couple of rides down on the watch now. I don't suppose there's any back up?

    I do have both rides as I also used iPhone app at the same time, but the main point of using the watch for it is for the heart rate. It would be great if these issues could be looked at and perhaps offering an 'are you sure' option when the delete button is pressed.

  • Everything is working now. I played with the motion activity settings of my iPhone. And tried on the watch again. And sometime while playing I could select the last feature in the Strava app to connect the watch. Don't know what really did the trick.

  • same issue here. starting/stopping activities on the series 3 watch apparently records them just fine on the watch, but they don't sync to the phone. guessing Strava needs to update the app for series 3 compatibility.

  • Got my AW3 over the weekend and did my first run with it at lunch today. All seemed to work easily enough. Tracked my run, gave me a ping with split time each mile and then showed me stats and save option after I stopped and clicked finish. When I saved it said it couldn’t upload the run until I was connected to the phone (not sorted out cellular yet). When I got near the phone I got a message on the watch and phone saying the activity had been uploaded and there it is. Only 2 complaints. No average pace on the watch when running apart from when it’s shown with split times and no history of runs on watch.

  • Strava support had me do this (lost my data on watch obviously in the process which sucked), and it now works.

     

    Please try the following steps: 

    1. Use the Watch app located on your iPhone to force an uninstall of the Strava Watch app. Note that it may take some time for the app to be fully uninstalled from the Watch face.
    2. Confirm the app has been uninstalled from the Watch.
    3. Uninstall the Strava app from your iPhone.
    4. Force close all apps on the iPhone.
    5. Restart the Watch and iPhone.
    6. Download and install the Strava app on the iPhone.
    7. Confirm you are logged into the Strava app.
    8. Confirm the Strava app has been installed on the Apple Watch.
    9. Unlock the display on the iPhone and load the Strava Apple Watch app.
    10. Watch for and approve prompts on both devices.

  • haha. And I thought Garmin had software problems. What I finding interesting is that with Strava (and perhaps all running logs for Apple Watch), the watch app and the online running log are integrated. In order to use Strava as the running log for the Apple Watch, you need to live with Strava's very limited options for the Watch display.

    For me, I have configured Garmin watches for years to display time, miles, average pace and either split pace or current pace. Having an running watch that does not display average pace for the entire run is a deal breaker.

    For you serious runners out there, let me know if I am getting this wrong. I would like to buy and Apple Watch and use Find my Friends (so my wife knows that I am safe), but I don't see how to make the Watch/Strava combo work,

    Thanks!

  • I got a new iPhone and the Watch 3 would not connect to it. Was hung up on a prompt to log in or sign up on the iPhone. I had to completely remove the app from the watch and phone, then force close all apps and restart both devices per Jud's comments (Strava support steps) above.

    It's back and working now on both iPhone and Watch.

  • Tried all of this and my Apple Watch 3 is still not syncing. I keep getting the error message on my watch “On your phone, log in or sign up using the Strava app.”

    I am logged in. I’ve tried checking the motion settings, I’ve tried uninstalling, restarting and reinstalling. 😞 Anyone have any other suggestions?

  • I love the apple watch.  But when it comes down to it, there are too many areas for the watch, watch app, data sync, phone app, or random other gremlin to cause data-capturing failure, even unrelated to Strava.  I drove myself completely insane trying to "use apple watch only."  And you know, everyone wants to at least track their competitive events- and it failed for me on two separate marathon occasions before I had enough. That's when I made the decision to use a Garmin for tracking.  Do I still use strava? You betcha, but not with my apple watch.

  • Hi folks,

    yesterday i want to try out my Apple watch series 3 for running with the Strava App. Works pretty fine just the heart rate will not be shown. I see the red heart symbol flashing and the Watch heart rate sensors are working as well, but the HR will not be shown on the watch.

    I already deinstalled / installed App on Iphone and Apple watch, set the watch back to factory settings and ensured that Strava is allowed to measure the heart rate in the Apple Health App.

    I´m a bit baffled and would love to run with the Apple Watch in combination with Strava.

    Using Apple Watch 3 with Watch OS 4.2 and Iphone 7 with 11.2.1.

    Appreciate your help!

  • So after a little research, I found this.  I hate giving up my Garmin Connect data, since I have almost 10 years of running data on there and I love Strava because it has other features that I like.  So, this might be a good fix.  It suggests using the Apple Watch Workout and then using a third party app (RunGap) to upload to Strava, Garmin, and others.  Seems like it sends pretty much everything.  I have not tried it yet, but I am in the process of setting up and trying it. 

    Crossing fingers.

  • I tried my RunGap fix and it works great.  I have all of the data, etc that I would want and it uploaded here to Strava and to Garmin Connect so I can keep adding to my 10 years of running data.  Yay!

  • Absolutelly mandatory IMO for Strava to develop its app so that one can follow routes using the apple watch.
    Much more relevant that audio.

  • Thanks so much, Carol!! I’ve tried and it works freat with syncing my workouts between apps. And $1.99 every 3 months isn’t much at all!

  • Would love to see an option to force touch to start a new split.  Right now, I am only aware of using the default splits: 1 km or 1 mile.  When doing fartlek runs/interval training, it would be great to able to define new splits on the fly by using force touch.  We already have an option to "switch sports".  I guarantee your users would prefer manual splits over switch sports.  Thanks.

  • I have exactly the same issue like Marcel Laquer post 21.12.17

    Did uninstall, restart watch and Iphone, but nothing helped

    Strange that there are no comments from Strava Support

  • @ Marcel Laquer (don't know how to reply to a post)

    See my post above, had the same problem and did "everything".

    Now it works ... under "Settings _ Privacy _ Motion & Fitness" I had to activate the 2 apps shown. (e.g. Health and Strava)

    Now it works !!!
