  • The fitness score erodes after one day of inactivity, this is not reflective of how fitness really works. I would like to see the algo to be adjusted so that if you on consectutive days of activity and take a rest day or recovery day, the fitness score will remain for at least 2 days - as we don't lose fitness immediately.

    This would allow me to take rest days without the guilt of losing fitness (yes, I am a bit of a slave to strava). 

    The rate at which the fitness score is reduced also needs to be adjusted, as the depletion is way faster than it would be in reality. One point for every 2 days for one week, AFTER the first two days of no depletion seems about right. 

    Further, you could decrease the effort point at which one can lose fitness even while being active. We should lose fitness while active. If the effort is minimal for x# days then the depletion can start.

  • A section for gear improvements....and i shouldnt have to vote up a topic. If the feature is on your platform it should be a topic for support questions or improvements.

    It's not popularity contest for f sake.

  • IMPROVING DATA (for swimming)

    if swimming is 1 of the 3 most important sports (like your site/app) suggests, make it so we can define the style of swimming too, so we can compare results fairly; breaststroke, backstroke, freestyle.

     

    ROWING:

    we need more than 4 digits in order to record data well.

    eg:

    Time-wise rowing; more than 40min, could result in more than 4 digits for distance.

    So; every time 'we' train on time, we can't use the data precisely, due to the max of 4 digits.

  • We should be able to post videos in our activities. I understand this would take up server space, so limit it. Limit to subscribers, and limit the duration of video upload by total seconds per day, or number of videos, whatever - but we should be able to post videos.

  • Could strava please make main road numbers more obvious in strava routes?

    When trying to plot a route it would be easier to know for example instead of the road name Watling street add in BOLD that its actually the A5 and it would be easier to not accidentally use that road.

    Or colour code roads, Motorways outlined blue, 'A' roads outlined red etc such as on OS maps.

  • I would like to be able to pin photos taken on a route into specific points on the route where they were taken (maybe there could be a little camera icon visible at each point). I don't know how to search for this in other posts so I'm sorry if this has been requested before! I guess it would be like pinned photos in Google Maps 🤷🏻‍♂️.

  • Jason Lamoreaux, it should be easy to solve the problem and separate the cycling disciplines between road, mtb, gravel, ..., and ther e-* variants as Marcelo Araújo and countless others have suggested here.

    First about the history of data, they should do absolutely nothing. Each cycling discipline should be setup as subset of the "cycling" we have today and only be allowed to be picked by the user after he creates a compatible equipment indicating that it wants do record some of its activities as a specific cycling discipline. That should deal with the users that don't known how/want to do that as they would keep counting only for the general cycling like today.

    Each subset of cycling should have their own leader board and stats, but every activity should update the general cycling leader boards and stats as well. That way we could for example keep count miles/km for cycling as whole while having different kom/qom for each cycling discipline. It is up to the user to what data is more interesting.

  • Hi there! I would like to propose adding scuba diving to the sports list. I switched to Strava so i wouldn’t need a separate logging-app for every sport. Even tho there are some scuba logging apps out there, they’re often not very user friendly (UI/UX). So I think it would be great if I could start logging my dives in Strava and centralise all my sport-data

  • Sure, my idea is Not the best, but we need a solution for that. I am open for every good idea 👍🏻😁

  • Super easy idea: allow 'zooming' in vertically on speed graphs in the mobile app; when a swim/row/run (where speed is measured in time per 100/500/1000m) contains one or more rests, the scale of the graph becomes so large that is is completely useless. It would also help if long-pressing on a point of the graph would display the numerical value on that point of the graph.

  • Anton V. thanks for your comment. We expanded the progress chart on the Mobile App to include all activity types, including walks and more. There is no longer a 3 sport limit. The order is based on how much time you’ve spent doing each sport type over the last 12 weeks, not the overall number of activities for each of them. So the sports you spend the most time doing will be shown first. We recommend you check out your walking and hiking stats on the Mobile App if you haven't yet. You can read more about this update here.

  • I would like an activity option of "run/walk." I've been walking a lot more in the last few years, and I've done several activities where I was both walking and running, especially on trails where I walk the uphills and run the downhills. Minor point, but it probably wouldn't be that hard to add.

  • On the issue of iPhone. I find more duplication of workouts among my iPhone friends than any other. Those duplications also seem to count in everything including local legend. It seems like an extrememly easy adjustment for strava to identify identical efforts and delete one.

  • I think you need a post about segments. After all, that's the defining feature of Strava.

    In addition to the average gradient statistic for segments, I would like to see the maximum gradient. Now, to find the max gradient I scrub the graph provided when you analyze your performance on a segment, and that's not guaranteed to find the maximum value.

  • I think offering segment leaderboards by comparing simple watts would be be a great motivational tool for larger riders who can never get a KOM but clearly are working.

    It would also help be a great training tool when focusing on power.

  • Hola,
    La configuración de las zonas cardiacas por pulsaciones no es practica. La barra con botones impide en algunos casos introducir las pulsaciones correctas ya que los botones quedan demasiado juntos (por ejemplo Z4 y Z5).
    Sería más práctico poder definir las zonas introduciendo las pulsaciones en número.
    Gracias.

  • Good for me, something important is missing, which is that it tells you each KM you do in an activity on the watch 4 and if it were by voice better than with a beep, with that and the improvements they have made in the latest updates it would be 10.

  • Bonjour
    Je vois écris pour savoir si vous comptez changer en 2022 le fait que les sorties de vélo virtuel apparaissent dans le compteur du vélo normal.
    Je vous avais déjà écrit l’année dernière là dessus.
    Selon moi c’est tellement différent que cela n’a aucun sens. La température, la circulation, la qualité de la route, le vent, les fous du volent qui vous dépassent, la luminosité, la qualité de gonflage des roues, les crevaisons etc etc…
    Bien sûr c’est un super moyen de se dépenser aussi et de travailler les intermittents.
    Mais il fait vraiment que lorsque la catégorie vélo virtuel est sélectionné, que ça alimente un compteur dans le profil de vélo virtuel.
    Merci d’avance pour votre retour et surtout cette modification sur l’application ;)

  • Not really a question but a request. Your list of activities does not include uphill skinning, which would be defined as within ski area boundaries to differentiate it from backcountry skiing. Any way you could add this activity? Quite popular here in Colorado. This would allow me to track specific parameters such as heart rate, pace, elevation gain, time elapsed. Currently none of your activities fit this workout. Thanks

  • Please add Splitboarding as an activity. Identical to ski touring in functionality :)

  • PLEASE consider adding "Motocross" as an activity option.  E-Bikes are not equivalent to a gas-powered motorcycle.  Many of us MXers train on mountain bikes, but it would be nice to use Strava for our motos as well. Thanks.

  • New Activity Type Request:   Add Electric Skateboarding as an activity type.   

    I use this app. to track routes, distances, elevation change, speeds, time in motion stats of my sessions riding my electric skateboard.   A typical session for me is between 20-40 miles with thousands of feet of elevation gain/climbs.  Total time in motion for each ride is between 90 and 210 minutes....hours of carving up city streets and windy mountain roads.      

    E Skaters already use the app to track and share rides.  There is a Bay Area Eskate group on the app that tracks activities under the E-Biking activity type.  I'm sure there are similar groups in many cities doing the same thing.  I think most anyone tracking their elec skateboarding rides on Strava chooses the E-Biking activity as it's the closest type of activity, or at least the only other motor-assisted activity type available to choose on Strava currently. 

    I understand that because motors are involved with electric skateboarding and e biking those activities are fundamentally different in nature than the other activity types most everyone uses Strava to track. Nonetheless,  there is a steadily growing community of folk that ride electric skateboards who want to track and share their activities/sessions, routes, top speeds and durations with their fellow skaters and their friends on Strava tracking & sharing their activities... whatever activity type that may be.

    It would be wonderful if electric skateboarding was listed in the activity types.

  • rope jumping

    Hi, I would love to have an option to select rope jumping to the activity list.

    I had my hip replaced 8 months ago, so I cannot run, but I can do sipping, It's the closest I have to running now,  and it would allow me to record my progress much better and even better if I could add this as a group challenge

  • I would like to recommend once a segment has been created. It can't be modified or deleted. Too often I've personally seen and or know of others who had achieved a KOM or trophy and soon after the segment is notified by the creator again to change the results in their favor. Why not have it when a segment is created, it's created. Or maybe 24 hours before it locks down. Just a thought.
