  • I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. The app starts recording okay, but at the end of the activity it keeps resetting to 0:00 before I can tap finish. It's quite frustrating. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • Jerry - you're probably not doing too much wrong ! the watch app really doesn't work well with the iPhone app at the minute. Only thing i could recommend is to have the app on phone screen when you start the activity on the watch, to make sure that they're running in sync, before you put the phone away in your pocket.

    seems to me that the watch, when it's screen is in sleep mode, is not keeping contact with the iPhone app.

    hoping that these problems are ironed out in the next release; for now i've switched back to runkeeper, as it's a bit less buggy - although still seems to not start an activity quick enough - unless the phone and watch have both been awake a short time before starting.

  • Won't use Apple Watch with Strava right now. Tried it once and found out the hard way that if you happen to stop and check a message or something on the watch, it basically stops Strava and no longer records. Lost data on part of a ride because of that. Not critical, but annoying nonetheless. So I'm back to just using the phone to start and stop. Would have been nice if the Apple Watch App would have worked correctly with the phone app so that if I change apps on the watch, Strava continues to function normally on the phone and then when I jump back into the watch app it resyncs and defaults to the phone app for current data. Hope this is something that can be accomplished. Would love to be able to use both together effectively.

  • I really like the activity app on apple watch, so it would be great if Strava could enter data into that.

    It would also be great if it could make use of the heart rate monitor in the watch.

  • Can't get the app to download to the watch. Have most current version of Strava on the iPhone but it doesn't show up within the Apple Watch app. Any other watch compatible app shows up just fine.

  • I used my new apple watch with Strava for the first time today - twice actually, for a run and a ride. Other than stale data displays (more on that later), it worked with no problems. On the iPhone, I first ran the Strava app, had it ready to start, left it running in the foreground, and then put the iPhone to sleep and tucked it away for the duration of the activity.

    I then opened the Strava app on the watch, and started, paused, and stopped the activity with no problems. I had auto-pause turned off (no need for that anymore when I can easily pause the activity from the watch). I also turned on audio cues for my ride, for "Start, Stop, Pause", had my iPhone volume turned to max, and I could audibly hear the iPhone announce the verification that the actions taken on the watch, to start, pause, and stop the ride, actually were received by the app running on the iPhone. Nice reassurance that it was actually recording, paused, and stopped when I wanted it to.

    Like others have described in this thread, my display was not always current, showing stale data. I found that most of the time when I raised the watch and looked, the data was stale, but if I lowered my arm, and a few seconds later raised and looked again, the display was up-to-date and showed all current data correctly. This may not be a Strava issue or mistake, but an issue that Apple needs to solve, if the notification sent to the app to update the view takes several seconds such that you don't get a current display.

    There has been some discussion whether a simple tap to pause is too easily done by accident, and whether a force tap should be used instead, which I presume would then give a selection to: Resume, Switch Sport, or Stop Activity. I have mixed feelings about this. The current interface, with a simple tap, allows the display to continue showing the time, distance, and average speed while the activity is paused. This is useful to see if you've stopped your ride for a bit, before resuming. So this is an advantage to leaving it as a simple tap.

    And one other comment - I think it is important to show all real-time display information as large, as bold, and as bright as possible. It's sometimes hard to read in bright sunlight and while in the middle of the ride. The time in the upper right corner is too dim, and the coloring of the Recording and Stopped indicators (red) is extremely hard to read in bright conditions. Please consider tweeking the display to enhance its readability.

    Overall, this was a positive experience for me. I look forward to updates to improve any issues that exist.

  • Thanks for all your continued feedback - it's been incredibly helpful going forward. We're working hard on an update to the Strava app for Apple Watch and look forward to releasing it when it's ready. We hope to address many of the issues brought up in this thread, including the "stuck" distance display on the watch face and improvements to how the watch communicates with the app in real time, as well as some others. I'll post again here when I have more concrete details about the update. Thanks!

  • I couldn't get the Strava Watch app to work, so I gave up and removed it from the Watch.

    I have been starting Strava on the iPhone and Workout on the Watch, then riding; when I stop I pause or End & Save both. This is quite annoying.

    Strava should have an option to start/stop the Workout app automatically, or to be started/stopped by it. The Watch Workout app is much easier to check while riding. Checking/controlling Strava on the iPhone requires leaving the iPhone unlocked and the screen chewing battery.

    The iPhone Notification Center widget is useful but difficult to access. Recently I have found that the widget tells me to unlock the iPhone to start or stop.

    I believe I have seen the Widget show up with a start or stop button, then update with the correct state. This is confusing.

  • I use Strava daily for my commute... Never had an issue. I love the app.
    I tried with the apple watch for the second time today, after it hadn't worked at all yesterday.
    I followed the advise to start it on the phone and watch... It tracked nothing.
    very disappointed.

    Infact the watch version actually stopped the phone app from tracking.
    So the good segment times I hit this morning will be lost :( Gutted!

    CONSTRUCTIVE...
    What would I like from Strava on the watch?

    I'd like strava to show-

    time riding/running

    miles covered

    and actual time. I also think strava should also over-ride the watch face when in use,

    so you can see it at a glance (rather than having to open the app mid ride) to check data.


    Really disappointed it doesn't work, and looking forward to bug fix updates.

  • I would love for my Apple Watch glance to show my Running Goal, as opposed to my Cycling Goal, or if there was some way to show both.

  • I'm unfortunately having to run with two watches on at the moment, because the Strava watch app doesn't upload activities to the Watch's Activity app - so I run with Apple's workout app on one wrist and my Garmin on the other, so my Garmin activity (which is more accurate than the Apple watch's, which still measures short even after the 1.0.1 update) goes via Connect to Strava and there Watch's workout goes into Activity.  Same for cycling - Edge plus Apple watch.  It would be great if they allowed Strava data to be uploaded to Activity as well.

  • I have just got from a ride and noticed that although I have updated the app I am still experiencing the resetting part way through a ride issue. It worked fine on Saturday but when I looked down 7 miles in it flickered and then reset to 0.00 and started again. This is getting increasingly annoying. I only bought the watch for Strava use.

  • Just did my first ride with the Apple Watch and Strava and I was shocked to find two major issues: - No heart rate recording. Just read that this is a limitation by Apple, so I can't fault Strava. Just hope Apple opens this up soon. - When waking the display on the watch from sleep, it goes to the watch face and not Strava. During a ride, this just seems absurd to me. I like to look at my overall distance, time and speed during a ride and with how the app currently works this is impossible. I have to click the crown to get back to the app. I almost killed myself a few times on my ride today trying to do this. Not sure if this is a limitation of the Watch, but this is a deal breaker for me. When I flick my wrist, and the watch screen turns on, the a Strava app screen should be the first thing I see. Hope this can be fixed soon. Other than that, the app worked great. I started and stopped the ride recording from the watch and it capture my entire ride without any issues. It's so close to being perfect.

  • I am strongly against the "1 tap to pause/stop your workout" function. The app is slow to update. Blame it on BLE, blame it on Apple, whatever. It's a fact, we have to deal with it. What it brings is:

    1. Run
    2. Open the Strava app
    3. It will load for several seconds - likely your watch's screen will shut back down
    4. You will tap on the screen to get the screen back on.
    5. Then you'll realize that this tap is actually stopping your activity.
    6. On this laggy interface, you will then proceed to tap again and see if - slowly but steadily - the interface updates and shows that your activity is resumed.

    This is HELL in the middle of an activity. This makes me stop. A tap on the screen cannot have such a function! Strong tap, or "two tap workflow" is something that should be used for something as drastic as stopping your activity. A simple tap should switch view and show you other types of data. We're running / biking while we access the app. We can't fiddle on this forever for it to work :)

    You probably don't want to hear this but I really think you need to: I am now only using Strava on the Apple Watch to END my workout. I don't trust it to start it properly, and I certainly don't trust accessing it mid workout for fear of it killing my workout. During the workout, Apple's own app does the job. Surprise surprise: they decided a force touch was how you should go and end your workout.

  • An enhancement request:
    When I start an activity for which I intend on following a route that I created in Strava, I would like the watch to show me turn by turn directions so I know where to go as I go along.

    Ideally, you also do what Apple does with left and right specific vibration types so I know when I'm supposed to turn.

  • Antonio C.: For issue #2: On your watch or on the iPhone Watch app.

    1. Settings> General> Activate on Wrist Raise
    2. Set to "Resume previous activity"

  • I forgot my Ambit 3 today so I gave the apple watch a 2nd chance (after the first didn´t work). This time it actually worked and I didn´t dare to touch anything to get a full file. Saved it after the ride and it seemed to have gone. Downloaded the file from my PolarV650 (wich I nomally don´t like using, since Polar ist still (unlike Suunto) unable to automatically sync to Strava) and uploaded that file manually to strava. Now Strava says I rode with somebody else (who is my second self). :-) If I klick on my alter ego I see, that the apple watch saved the file to a wrong date (2 weeks ago). Ruined my statistics but got me to 6000meters climb. :-) Needless to say I won´t be using the app again. This is just ridicolous.

  • hopefully this means better things are to come for fitness on apple watch:
    https://recode.net/2015/05/27/apple-to-preview-watch-developer-kit-next-month/


    'Apple confirmed Wednesday that it will soon release a software development kit that will allow programmers to write apps natively for the Apple Watch.

    Until now, developers have been able to customize their iPhone app to allow some actions to be taken on the watch, but haven’t been able to directly program on the phone.

    Speaking at Code Conference, Apple operations chief Jeff Williams said the new development would allow games to run on the watch and would permit direct access to the sensors built into the watch.

    “I’m a cyclist who uses Strava, so it will have access to the sensor,” Williams said. Apple has its main conference for developers coming up in two weeks’ time in San Francisco.'

  • Would like to hear from Strava: what's the optimal setup for using a BTLE HR sensor (eg Wahoo Tickr) with the Watch: pair to phone only or to watch only? Is it possible to work wit hboth?

  • Thank you all for your continued feedback. We're working hard to gather all the feedback we can to make this the best experience possible going forward for athletes using Strava on the Apple Watch. Please keep in mind that we're very new to this device too. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work out the kinks of developing Strava on a first generation device. 

    @Axel - What is your athlete ID? I'd like to take a closer look at that Apple Watch activity if it's still there to help troubleshoot. 

    @Mark - The optimal setup for using a HRM with Strava on the Apple Watch is to pair a BLE HRM such as a Wahoo Tickr to your phone, as your phone is actually the device recording data.

  • When I open the app, it immediately starts recording. This is really annoying. I had to delete several "rides" from my feed that were nothing more than me sitting on the couch. Not only is it unclear on how to start recording, it is also unclear on how to stop. Tapping and then pressing Finish didn't seem to work. I'm still not sure how I got it to stop.

  • Once the Strava Watch App finishes loading it shows my weekly cycling summary. Why do you think this is what I want to see? How about showing me a menu? I have no idea what to do when there's nothing more than a number and a picture of a bicycle on the screen. It then immediately starts recording. This app is completely worthless and I do not see myself using it at all.

  • @Jeremy: My # is 2262397. I have deleted the workout to get my statistics right, though. On a side note: The double-workout got me past the 6000m-climbing challenge, so I got the according notification. Deleting the one workout made me fall below the 6000m again, but I can still order the Jersey for the completed challenge.

  • I did a long run today with the watch app. My experience seemed common here: some frustration accidentally stopping run, more time fiddling with watch than desired (greatly reduced when I figured out the "raise wrist, wake up in last used app" trick, and delays getting current stats to watch for display. I agree on using force touch to pause/stop/finish activity. My #1 wish at this time is heart rate integration. It would be great to fully exploit the wrist HRM, but many will want to use a BT HRM instead, and both should be supported. I tried swiping back and forth between the Strava display and the watch's HRM, but 2 issues made that impractical. First, touching the screen at all with Strava up risks an inadvertent activity stop. Second, Apple's HRM seems to take 15 seconds or so to get a reading, and I want it instantaneous. Overall, I envision an app where the watch interface is limited. Glance down, get key data, perhaps swipe to a secondary display or map with route, and a force touch option for pause/stop/switch activities/finish. On the Apple Watch app (on phone), I would have the ability to fine tune the watch display (choose what to fill the screen real estate with), choose secondary displays or maps, setup heart rate zones/alerts, and maybe a way to set goal pace/dist, etc. More advanced versions could address setting up time or distance intervals. I don't much care whether I do this in the Strava iPhone app or in the Apple Watch app, whatever is fastest and allows the most customization. A couple of weeks ago, I rode a pre-planned Strava route in an unfamiliar area. I was amazed how many times I had to stop, pull out the phone, unlock it, check my progress, next turn, etc. How cool would it have been to have my watch tap me a couple hundred meters before a turn, and a quick glance down after the tap would show the direction to turn, distance to the turn, and the new road name? This is not where I would have you put your primary effort right now, but as an end state capability--absolutely! Thanks for reading!

  • @Jeremy

    I completely understand the restrictions on the heart rate, and can also understand you feel that it's not up to your standards to use HealthKit.  But, I have to imagine there are a large number of people that would rather have the 10sec polls brought in rather than nothing.  At least averaging these 10sec readings over a certain distance would yield a valuable insight into my performance.  I mean I'm the only one really looking at the heart rate data, so it's really only me that gets 'hurt' by having slightly less accurate polling.

    Anyway, would love to see something brought in for this, as I really don't want to have to go back to the chest strap if there is a form of the data currently available.

     

    I have to imagine I'm not alone in feeling this way.  :)

  • Nico R: Thanks! Didn't know how this setting. I think Strava should either overwrite this setting when the app is in focus, or ask the user to change it when first launching on the watch.

    I used it again for the second time today, and it worked great. Once Apple opens up the heart rate sensor, the app will be golden.

  • I'd love to see Strava data sync over to the apple watch activity counter/collector. I prefer to keep all my ride/run logs with Strava, and not use the watch "workout" feature. The watch is great at encompassing a full day of activity (and more so for the year and years to come), but most of the dedicated exercise is recorded with Strava. Hopefully the team will find a way to coincide with the healthKit and activity app.

  • The most useful feature to incorporate into Strava from the Apple Watch would be the data from the HR sensor. I believe Apple will be opening access to the sensor in the next few weeks through a development kit. Jeff Williams, Apple's Operations Chief, said that he is a cyclist who uses Strava and that Strava would have access to the sensor. This would be the most beneficial feature to include so please bring this feature to a future update as soon as you are able.

  • When the Strava can show heart rate by using Apple watch's sensor?

  • Even before waiting for the new SDK for WatchOS and getting access to the watch's own sensor, Strava on Apple Watch can do much better than it does today. 

    E.g. I use a Wahoo TickrX paired to the iPhone while I run. The iPhone Strava app gets the live data from the TickrX correctly, but does *NOT* display it on the watch's Strava app! There is no justifiable reason for that. I would be perfectly happy if Strava for Apple Watch at least mimicked Apple's workout application UI, including showing BPM information.
