Reviews on Strava Training: Track Running, Cycling & Swimming
no landscape mode? I am just about to begin using this to log/track rides, my phone mount for my bike works best in landscape and I'd like my phone to be landscape. the app does not appear to rotate into landscape mode, which is unfortunate because if I want my phone mounted to my stem it can ONLY be in landscape. this app also looks to be very conducive to landscape mode, and from recent Google searches it looks like people have been asking for this for years. please???
Frustrated. Even with FINISH, if you don't save immediately it adds your 50 mile drive? So you're exhausted just want to go home but you're forced to put information in or you corrupt it since Strava doesn't work. That is BS. And there's apparently no way to fix this. All you can do is enter information in manually with zero information 0 miles. If somebody knows of a functional bicycling application please let me know.
I paid for the training plans for a year thinking that they would be at least as good as the free Nike ones. But I am disappointed and regret buying them. There is no guided coaching or guided runs. So now having to use the Nike app to find out how to run a fartlek run. Also I can't rearrange my training days as there is no schedule on the app. You just get an email to tell you what to do the next day.
I record my running activities and during my running activity the app sort of shuts itself down without telling me and I have to start the app back up again. When I do this I have to press start as if I am starting a new workout and then it just continues my current workout if that makes sense however I don't think it has caculated the distance correctly as it is sort of guessing from when it lost signal and stopped the workout. I find this R annoying and makes it basically pointless app.
This application is not working with oneplus6 mobile. It is stopped working after 2/3minutes. Same issue after reinstalling multiple time. as on 5th April 2019, still it is not working with oneplus6 phone.
Excellent way to track outdoor exercise and also indoor stuff. Trying to hold onto those QOMs or steal someone else's is always fun. Also a great way to follow others and what they do and the analysis at the end of the month/year is great to look at!
I use Strava constantly and even pay for Summit. I don't typically pay for apps but I like the premium features and additional stats tracking. The information around recovery and output are some of the most helpful stats to me and I also like being able to keep tabs on my friends and competitors.
All I wanted was something to display my current heart rate (using the CooSpo brand Bluetooth chest strap). I tried the following apps first: UA Record, RunTastic, Strava, and Endomondo. Endomondo is the only one that displays my current heart rate right up front when I want it to.
Not perfect yet, but I appreciate ANYONE making android watch apps at the moment. I am enjoying using strava for the first time (finding challenges in my normal ride adds entertainment to my exercise it's fun to see how I compare to others even though I'm no athlete) but I still can't decide if it's worth taking up RAM when SHealth apps do good enough for me and they upload directly to Strava on my phone after anyway. Faultless from SHealth, but I lost some data using Strava.
So for some reason Strava is not tracking my runs properly. tonight (28.03.19) I ran 5.06km but strava says I've only done 0.11km. I don't know what the issue is I've been running with my GPS on but for some reason it is not picking it up. I have uninstalled and installed it again but it's still not fixed. Would somebody please be able to help. I need it to work properly before my half marathon, until then I'm only giving one star!
ive been using strava for almost 2months now the app is great the only negative comment i have is the gps tracking. i run with my wife and both use strava but once were done our run my distance results are cut short compared to hers ( ex: we would run 4m and my results would show up as 3.2 and today..1.7m ) ... if this problem can be fixed i really dont mind revising my review
Competition among friends definitely helps get me out the door and work/play hard. Free version doesn't have great functionality but still allows you to see your progress month to month and compared to friends.
I've been using Strava for 11 months now. And I just love everything about until it stop display my pace. Now it just display elevation for a flat run. I prefer the old version of Strava, the pace and time is the most important for a run. This is very frustrating that I can't edit how the appears cause I love keep track of my pace and how fast my intervals are and it keeps coming up with elevation/just time.Why elevation is prioritized over pace in the dashboard feeds. Please bring back pace.
I have constantly updated, but there is a problem when I turn on Strava to record my cycle activities and put it in the background and browse through other windows, when i come back, the message "Strava has recovery from an unexpected problem..." is always there, and looks like that it does not count precisioously the kilometres. My mobile is Oneplus 5S. Cheers!
really enjoying using Strava . find it to be accurate and easy to use. route building is the trickiest bit. great app for runners and cyclists. "if it's not on strava it didn't happen" - perfect for accountability
great motivation and tracking! I wish it would just not have ads if you were not using a paid version. just take out the stuff that is not paid for.
I am using the basic version amd so far it's good. But the basic information like personal records etc are not available on Ui but only on the website. What extra effort will it take to get it on the app too?
I'm hoping I just haven't found the option yet but I am using for my rides to and from work and have my phone locked in my bag, this stops the app from functionally tracking properly (tonight I did 14.2km in 9 minutes over buildings and water). Is this a feature that I've missed or is it not available?! Please help
best training app. Could do with a search athlete feature? if follow a few people, if you just want to check with 1, have to scroll through.
I love the Strava app. Not only does it provide a means to track my own progress and training, but it also provides a forum to engage with other athletes both locally and globally. Among my friends, the clubs drive accountability and performance. My only criticism centers on the occasional outages that delay the ability to upload activities.
AVOID!!! Without my consent or permission this app started accessing contacts I have never knowingly or willingly shared, it is absolutely disgusting that this app has no regard for privacy and has shared my details without permission. In 2019 this is an outrageous breach of trust.
Love the flybys, pity can't be viewed on phone. Love that you can share run with others to be added to your run. Excellent tool for beginner, intermediate and advanced athletes.
The time is all wrong. it says i biked 24km in 18 minutes. :0 The path was mostly correct but there was a long stretch where it just drew a straight line from one point to the next.
I've been using this for a few years now. It measures your runs okay and stops timing if you don't move. There are plenty of statistics to obsess about and you've got the chance to see how others are doing. I would give five stars if it didn't keep crashing after about an hour. I started using another tracker if I planned to be out for more than an hour.
for a long time i used map my run, but the bugs and ads were killing me. Strava is very simple. Hit record, and select the type of workout and your set. it even keeps track of month, year, and all time stats like PRs and totals. its very smooth.
Great app. It would be nice if the display background could be inverted to black (or some other dark color), while having white or light colored letters. This would prevent bright glare when checking during night activities.
top app really gets you motivated to go out and perform and pit yourself against fellow runners/cyclists.Also a fantastic base to link up with other athletes and learn new routes and see how their training plans might benefit you, and also to partake in a bit of friendly banter too;)
Worthless app Today it was just the second time and it failed to record my entire running for almost half hour. It recorded for 22 seconds and then stopped. Can't edit or update manually as well. Totally useless app. Look for something else.
Strava shows different pace, distance & time compared to my watch while other apps shows exactly the same. Really stupid & frustrating to see you run 10km but strava only shows 9.5km!!😤😤
I get a straight line on the map every time.. i have reported this several times but no action has been taken. please fix this issue ASAP... if you really care about your app users/ customers.
it's a great app to keep a track of your workouts and connect with running/cycling community. The data from a Garmin watch are transferred seamlessly to Strava where they are analyzed. Awesome community features from clubs to challenges to leaderboards. Great safety features from invizibility cloud over your home when showing your track to beacon (optional w/Premium). I took one star off as I wish the Premium analysis didn't rely exclusively on HR data and there were more privacy level options.
Enjoy every moment of using Strava! Keeps you posted, up to date, motivated and excited to ride your bike / run that distance / walk that part and swim as you can. But please Strava, add Horse riding as an activity 🐴🐎 Thanks.
since the day I install the app its not recording activity. Distance nd time both incorrect. it even stop recording just after few seconds. when I press start, time and Gps start but after finishing my cycling when I check i found it record nothing
just had a fantastic run, it was a PB, i know this because i looked at my phones clock, not from the strava app tracking because it is useless. when i left i hit start, saw the timer going so i put my phone away until i finished and saw there was zero recorded data. still asked if i wanted to save though. Finding a new tracking app to use ASAP.
Doesnt Track Accurately,Stops In Between, doesn't have an option to notify after each km with your pace and distance details, for other running app its a basic feature. This is the mlst important feature missed. Why do I have to open the each time snd track the distance covered ?Also Strava doesn't support mi band 3 . Which is one of the most popular band.
the app and the tracking is very good. But the only problem i had was inspite of the run announcement turned ON, it doesnt really announce at the end of every km.
Excellent app. The free version is all you really need, but the premium addons are a plus if you desire live tracking and in depth data analysis The social aspect is extremely motivating.
lots of GPS issues on android, it lost track of me on iPhone sporadically, but on Android it's so often! I've tried everything in the help section, and it sort it until either the app or Android OS changes, and round the bowl we go again!!! frustrating
Really impressed this app has a wheelchair option. Something I haven't found in other apps before and something I've been wanting forever! Great GPS tracker and very accurate.
an ideal elaborative app for all the atheletes to monitor the daily progress, make comparisons with the other athletes around the globe and to incorporate the changes required in the workout plans so as to achieve the goals....
