  • Love Hate Relationship with Strava

    I am getting injured more trying to get crowns. I’m hiking things and doing things that I wouldn’t normally do for extra Vert. I’m hitting zone five heart rate regularly now and almost dying of heart attack.
    Highly recommend

  • Strava is the best.

    Since joining Strava I’ve been able to accurately track my runs, run with friends who aren’t near me, and overall increase my health and fitness. It doesn’t run the miles for me, no. But it does hold me accountable.

  • Mostly great but…

    I have had Strava stop working in the middle of my walk a couple of times which is very frustrating. I am part of a challenge and every step counts, so when I get home and find my walk wasn’t recorded properly it is very discouraging. I’m going to look for another tracking app.

  • On point for certain activities.

    Sailing would be a nice icon sport to add.
    Also what if you’re doing multi activities at ones.; swim, bike, kayak?? . Just a suggestion…

      Strava needs to figure out how to put triathlons as 1 entry and not 5 entries.

    • Greedy Company - Inaccurate Pace Calculation - No turn by turn navigation

      I deleted this app and won’t be using anymore. Their costs haven’t gone up, so why increase the price? Guess us runners who are leaders in our communities should start our own app. 🙋‍♂️Bye Strava. Btw… Strava’s navigation and appearance is not easy to use. Complicated navigating the app, basic features hard to find. The average pace per mile calculation for miles is off by about 10-15 seconds vs all other apps and metrics. Strava needs to focus on metric accuracy if they are going to charge $80 to use this app. Runmeter is free and has better metrics, plus you don’t need to upgrade to the $9/year price to access basic information. Strava also doesn’t have turn by turn voice navigation for routes… such a basic feature, but they don’t offer it.

    • Strava

      I’ve used many apps to track my fitness. Strava does it best with the right mix of being able to share…or not. I spend more time scrolling Strava than Instagram and TikTok combined.

    • Been using for years.

      This app is great for folks that want to keep track of their activities. I really like the data that it keeps for heart rate and stuff. If I had to give one piece of advice is the fitness score doesn't seem to be accurate. I am not sure how it is measured but you don't really get a lot of credit for short workouts no matter how hard they are. I recommend this app to everyone I ride, run when I did or without with.

    • Strava

      Definitely one of my top rated workout apps. And will continue using. Could add a few more updates like dark mode and other sports. Would recommend strava just needs to get with the times a little bit on updates and be willing to change the overall look and add different challenges. I also think strava premium is kinda pointless yea you get some cool maps that nobody else gets but that’s really it.

    • Nice app, too far on the esg front

      Sorry I don’t care to see how my bike ride in a park pretends to save emissions. Can we stop with the meaningless virtue signaling? Good app if you can get past all the lefty stuff.

    • Apple Watch

      My only issue has been the emergency contact beacon. I have 3 contacts, my two boys and my wife. The boys get my beacon and my wife doesn’t. I have asked Strava and they just ignore me. Considering my wife would be the only one that would actually check up on me…I’ll probably be stranded in the woods somewhere for days.

    • Strava is so beast

      Why is strava so beast? I can see what all my friends are doing, track my running, biking, lifting, swimming, disc golf all in one place. This is my favorite app on my entire phone, and for good reason. If you asked me to rate all my apps on a beast scale strava would be rancor status because the rancor is one of the biggest and baddest beasts out there. Only negative thing I have to say about strava is they didn’t respond to my Instagram DM about being a strava influencer. Otherwise, all love 🫶🏼

      Woke update to show how your saving the earth on your human powered activity. Keep paying for these work companies. Will you also show how all these politicians are polluting the environment in their private jets.

    • Strava is woke

      Strava deleted my comments that spoke out against “transgender”women competing against and beating actual women in women's sports. Everyone who uses Strava are athletes, and athletes of all people should be against this. They sent me emails threatening to ban my account. So I’m boycotting Strava. And I encourage everyone else to boycott them too. Don’t download this app.

    • Virtually useless without a sub

      I used to absolutely love this app. My friends and I had a running group, we used to compete, I used this app to compare times and to look up trails but no more.

      Everything they made this app useful is beyond a pay wall now and their prices are absurd for what we’d get back in return.
