New Strava app for Apple Watch to support Series 2+

We are excited to release an updated Strava app which supports standalone recording using the built-in GPS of the Apple Watch Series 2+. 

Please note: To support the GPS in the Apple Watch Series 2+, we redesigned the app to work separately from the phone. Even if your watch still connects to the GPS from your phone, the app functions independently on the watch.

If you're experiencing technical troubles installing, recording, or syncing Apple Watch activities, please contact us directly by submitting a ticket at the bottom of this post.

  • Elle, why won't Strava listen to us and simply give us the ability to use the old app on our watches again?

    There has been no technical explanation given as to why it cannot get the heartbeat from the watch and display a summary of data on it. Your customers feel ignored. There are 30 pages of this here!!!!!

  • It has been a year since Strava launched its standalone app. I suspect that the lack of improvement in the app is due to them realising that they need to go back to the drawing board and start from the ground up. The communication from the company during this period has been woeful. For cyclists in particular, the app has been a spectacular fail and what we're left with is a basic running app with little customisability and for most users the only selling point is the simple Strava integration.

    • No customisation so cyclists have to put up with the near useless actual speed display rather than average speed and runners only have pace (which seems to be all over the place most of the time);
    • No swim activity type (there are pages requesting this);
    • No ability to switch off gps for indoor workouts;
    • No integration with phone so that phone can display activity stats in real time;
    • No ability to "hand off" to the phone if the watch runs out of battery on long rides (the original app did this, presumably because the phone was doing the work);
    • No ability to structure workouts (e.g. set haptics or audio cues for every kilometre).

    In short, in order to make the app independent of the phone Strava lost much of what was good about the original app without gaining much at all. Every cyclist I know would still carry their phone, most runners going on long runs would carry their phone. I'm hoping Strava have taken on board the pages and pages of criticism (most of it very constructive because we all love Strava) and launch a shiny new Apple Watch app that addresses these issues. Currently we have an app that is good for lunchtime office runs and commutes to work - which is possibly how Strava employees test it.

  • @Kazys, I’m on the AW2 and I get heart rate data just fine. I’ve tried both with an external HR strap and from the watch itself. 

     

    @John Sutton - agree with your points, but they MUST keep the option to go with just the AW and leave your phone at home. I could never imagine carrying my phone with me on a run - it’s such a hassle! Which is why I oove that I can get Apple Music on the watch now.

  • I have used the new Apple Watch app many times now and it works great for me. With the single exception of **beacons**. I became a premium member for the ability to send beacons, so my wife could know where I was while out running trails alone. But this has never been available while tracking from my watch.

    I always run with my phone so I can listen to my audio books on the trail. There must be a way to make beacons available as long as your Apple Watch 1 or 2 is connected to your phone or if you are standalone on a Apple Watch v3. Or if I start an activity on my watch that the app on the phone will detect that it is running and let me track my stats/send a beacon from the phone...

    Thanks for your hard work, I love most everything about the app... just want that Beacon :)

  • Could you explain why Strava AW app uses pedometer's data to calculate distance for outdoor runs and hikes and not GPS data which it records anyway?

  • Just got an AW3 and went for my first run tonight with Strava app. Worked great and mileage and split times seemed to be accurate. As a few other users have posted would love to see a couple items in future releases:

    - capability to configure metrics on the strava tracking screen (want mileage as my “big” metric)
    - voice announcements giving progress overview of last split upon split/mile completion. This is a great feature on phone app.
    - nice to have- capability to setup custom activities and custom metric tracking. This is a great feature available with the suuntos and moves count.

    Keep up the great work team Strava!

  • Daniel V., 

     

    How do you get heart rate data from the AW2? My iPhone no longer sees it under sensors.

  • Trying to comment on a comment from Matt Browning but I think this comments to all. Did the recent update this week

    stop allowing the cues for the Splits and also the starts and stops?

  • THIS IS FIXED NOW.  THANKS Strava. Strava: Gotta change the heart rate display on the watch.  It's showing average heart rate during a ride.  This is completely useless.  I need to know my current heart rate, not average.  I pretty much know that my average heart rate on a ride is going to be 145-150 bpm before I even get out of bed in the morning.  It's so annoying that I might have to dump the Strava app and go back to cyclemeter for real-time data and tracking.

  • I like the new watch interface. It reacts faster on touch, and faster to start a workout. The layout is improved as well.  Great that you added indoor workouts, about time!

    Heart rate seems to refresh faster, but is also gets stuck on the same rate for long periods of time, and I had a ride recently where it was constantly way too high.

    The biggest problem I have is that when I am done with the workout (bike workouts of no more than 1.75 hours), the watch has run out of power by early evening.  It must be the app because this only happens on days when I am using it. Is there a solution to this?

    I have a first generation Apple Watch, and an iPhone 7 Plus.

  • It would be great to mark your own splits. Especially for interval training. That's the only thing Nike Run Club does better than Strava😉

  • I don’t know if this has already been posted. Why does Strava not smooth all the gps data points post run using something like the Kalman Filter which the standard Activity App does post run. Also would be nice be be able to choose different Run metrics on the watch app, i.e Heart Rate zones, current pace, last mile split, predicted finished time etc. I’m glad Strava have continued to work on the watch app development.

  • I was able to use my Apple Watch Series 2 independantly on a run, without my watch.

    There was no problem syncing when i got back, until a recent run.

    Here's what happened.

    - recorded and completed the run on my Apple Watch

    - My watch went into powersaving mode

    - Reached home, charged my watch.

    - The run is now unable to be synced to my phone.

    I tried to press the sync button (for this particular activity) on the Apple Watch Strava App, but it doesnt work.

    I did another test run, and this new workout sync-ed fine, all except one activity that just refuses to be synced!

    I think the key problem is -  there is no way to sync an activity manually (even if the user chooses to sync the same activity multiple times) from Apple Watch to iPhone Application

     Another note:

    On my Apple Watch Strava App, the sync-ed activities are supposed to be in Grey, but none of them are.

  • The heart rate still doesn't work if you using your phone to track your activity, but still have your watch on.

  • I have recently purchased an Apple Watch ser 2 and used it with the Strava app for the first time yesterday. I went for a Cycle and everything worked as should. However when I finished my workout it did not sync to the iPhone app automatically. I have tried to sync it manually in the Apple Watch via the Settings, History but when I tap sync it just returns to the previous screen. Any ideas how to fix this issue. I’ve tried switching off the phone and watch but still no joy.

  • How about an option when running or hiking to use the gps for distance instead on the pedometer.

  • It would be helpful to be able to chance the options for recorded activities on the Apple Watch app. For example, I live in Arizona so I never nortic ski but I do Kayak! Unfortunately, kayaking is not sn option at this time, neither is swimming. Also it would be great to be able to organize the activity options so that frequent activities are at the top.

  • Any update on upcoming fix for wet fingers issues?
    A lot of progress has been made in the last couple years, but I still have issues ending a trail run when raining or in very humid conditions. Last time after a 21k trail run by 30 Celsius and with rain, I had to ask around for a dry finger. The third volunteer was able to stop it...

  • Hi. I'm having major problems with GPS recording using Apple Watch series 3. It worked well for the first few weeks after purchase, but since late June I've had problems intermittently, and since 7th July have not had a single activity record properly. On a couple of occasions, the watch app fails to pick up any change in position and doesn't record the activity at all. Have tried various things suggested in your section on GPS troubleshooting for iOS without success (but these seem to relate mostly to GPS tracking using an iPhone). Becoming really annoying. Any ideas?

  • Will Strava ever add the feature back in to have the phone and watch in sync so I can start my run with my watch but still use beacon and listening to audio cues through my phone connected headphones?
