I started using Strava last summer for the social features, within our local parkrun group and other local running friends. Then in December I got an Apple Watch. Syncing was so easy - it just worked, and afterwards you could see your activities in the Exercise app and on your phone. It even tracked cross-country skiing - cool! (Try that, Nike Run.) BUT THEN IN FEBRUARY STRAVA BROKE IT!! Why? It no longer works. Activities recorded with the Strava complication don't show up in Exercise, don't show up as a workout, sometimes you don't even get the activity credit. PLEASE RESTORE THE OLD FUNCTIONALITY!
Not the most bug-free app/platform in the world. However, if there is an issue, their support team will get it fixed in no time given the proper diagnosis information. Pleased to see such tech support in an era where many platforms are simply released and never maintained. See it, say it, sorted!
This is such an amazing tool. Met many people on strava from rides. Thanks so much for an awesome product
Been running for more than three years now and can’t do it without Strava. Staying connected with other runners is huge. I hope the GPS would improve though
With the most recent update, Strava no longer works well with the Apple Health app. Also, they bully smaller companies/apps like Relive.
Newest update broke syncing to health. App is now worthless in my case.
I am still getting used to the Strava’s novelty as I am pretty old school when it comes to tracking fitness levels. It seems to me that the Strava app and Strava Insights should be merged into one app. I rated this three stars because there is no iPad version that will allow you to read Strava in landscape mode with a keyboard. I have to login via Safari/Chrome to use Strava with an iPad.
The app is missing heart-rate functions with the Apple Watch and iPhone. I only use it for sharing. For that it’s fine but I’m canceling premium.
Strava used to be my favorite application to track all of my exercises. However, with their v137 update, the HealthKit activity sync function of the app completely broke. An update getting with such glaring issue defies all logic. Shows no attempt at even doing reasonable testing before release. Since that update, Strava has been completely silent on the issue. A scan of their support account on FB, Twitter shows how many of their paying users are frustrated with the issues created by the v137 release. In return, we get the canned response to contact support, just to get automated responses that are not relevant. With the latest v138 release, the problem persists and still no announcement/explanation from Strava. If breaking a core function on iOS app such as HealthKit synchronization that was working before is not a priority for repair, what are we paying our hard-earned money to them for?
I would love this app if we could correct time/distance for activities. I use a garmin, which does not track treadmill workouts accurately, or sometimes forget to stop my watch after run. I can edit the entry in Connect to match treadmill but the corrected data does not import to Strava. Not worth paying for upgrade and probably won’t even keep the free version. Too bad because I like their other features.
