    "Strava for better"


    Runners and cyclists are massive fans of the the Strava app, and it’s clear to see why. Whether you're competing with yourself for a new personal best, or vying against strangers who are quicker than you, Strava brings the competition home. A great interface and strong community make this app truly worth it.


    Strava has a truly simple interface. Example: if you want to switch between running or cycling, tap on the bicycle or shoe icon at the top and you’re there. It really is that easy.

    GPS and mapping are super accurate, and Strava easily records your running and cycling data, comparing you with others hassle free. This community of other users is one of the app’s strongest assets, and a great motivator for competitive types.

    It also supports Bluetooth and ANT devices, such as heart rate monitors. All-in-all, a thoroughly ‘freemium’ app.


    Privacy could be a little better explained and protected: in-app privacy controls are limited. Goal tracking is also restricted to Premium members.

    It works great when my phone is in my back pocket for a 5.4 mile ride but not for a 3 mile and something ride when I used an arm holster since I had no pockets. It auto-paused so my ride was only 20 seconds long and not 40 minutes. I tried this multiple times and every time I checked, it was 10 or 20 seconds. Not nice, Strava.

    This app doesn't track my running speed properly, terrible!

    The pedometor aspect of sport watches is hands down the most common use. If it synced steps from Movescount it would be pretty close to perfect.

    Fine if you use a separate dedicated gps device ie Garmin 520 and just use app to view results. Segment logging is great to see how you have done. I have 7 years worth of history now.
