Recent Releases
Over 50 updates in 2020 so far
May 13, 2020

Notice something new? We’ve changed our ways of working to deliver the new features, small tweaks and bug fixes that you - our athletes - have been asking for.

So far this year, we’ve made 52 improvements, including 4 updates for discovering new routes and 12 improvements to the ways you can analyze activities. We’ve heard your feedback (you’re a passionate bunch) and we’ve finally taken action on 10 of the most requested items in our support forums, including a new algorithm that automatically flags suspicious segment efforts, a tool for cropping activities on mobile and a chronological feed sorting option.

We’ve deepened our commitment to creating an awesome experience for athletes on Strava and letting your feedback guide the way. All of this is just the beginning – in the next couple of months we’ll be releasing a whole new look for Routes on the web and some exciting new ways to compete on segments.

You've got the (functional threshold) power
April 25, 2020

A ride you did a year ago might not feel the same as if you did it right now. (Hopefully it would feel easier!) For cyclists who train with power, that's another way of saying your FTP changes over time, and to help you track it, you can now set date ranges for your FTP numbers.

So if your FTP a year ago was 200 watts and now it's 220 watts, this means your old workouts can retain the zones and stats for your fitness at the time instead of updating to match your current output. You'll also see your past numbers reflected in your Fitness graph.

You can add date ranges for your FTP in your "My Performance" settings on the web. Check it out, and we hope your power numbers keep improving!

A Power-Up for Your Analysis
April 17, 2020

We've made a couple additions to the analysis screen in the app recently. If you haven't come across them yet, here's the scoop:

If you have a running watch or cycling computer that records cadence, you'll see a line graph for steps or pedal strokes per minute, as well as your average and max cadence during your activity. Now there'll be no question if you found your groove or not.

And for riders, rowers and runners that train with power, there's a new line graph for your watts, giving you a sense of your output at any given time during your workout. This will show up for any activity you record with power, including compatible indoor trainers and erg machines.

You can see these updates on both your new and old activities. We hope you'll check them out!

Double time: See elapsed and moving time on your activities
April 10, 2020

Most activities in your feed show "moving time", which captures how long you were running, riding or working out, and not the time you spent between watch pauses or waiting at stoplights. But the total time from start to save can be important too, so we've added "elapsed time" into the app as a new stat on your activity analysis.

If you want to see your activity duration door-to-door, including flat tires, shoe tying, bathroom breaks and selfie poses, you can now do that from your phone.

One other update for treadmill runs and trainer rides recorded with a watch or cycling computer: We used to show only elapsed time for these activities as it was difficult to get an accurate moving time indoors. If your device has an "indoor" setting or other non-GPS mode, you'll now be able to see both moving and elapsed time – the same as your normal runs and rides.

Check your splits for every sport (even when they’re indoors)
April 3, 2020

Runners might already be familiar with the Workout Analysis feature for recapping your intervals or mile splits, and now we've updated this subscription feature so you can dive deep on any sport. All you gotta do is hit the lap button on your watch or cycling computer to create your splits, and you'll get an interactive bar chart in the app after you upload.

Cyclists, see your watts from your hill repeats, or view heart rate if you don't have a power meter. Swimmers, check out your interval pace, and for everyone, Workout Analysis also shows up for indoor activities if you're using heart rate or power data. Right now, many of us are training inside more than ever, so give it a look after your next treadmill or trainer session.

You can see Workout Analysis in the app for any activity where you used the lap button on your device.

Find new routes right from your door
March 26, 2020

We know that COVID-19 makes getting outside, let alone exploring, challenging if not impossible right now. But we, like you, have been dreaming of our next adventure. We've released our new Routes feature early for anyone who's able to enjoy it, and so we can learn from your feedback and make Routes better for when these difficult times are behind us.

Our community knows the best places to ride and run, and with 50 million of you in total, that's a whole lot of routes – not just the world's must-do roads and trails, but also the easiest ways to get around town and the most bang-for-the-buck workouts from almost anywhere.

Routes is designed to help you unlock that knowledge and make exploring easy, even from your front door. Tell us where, how far, hilly or flat, paved or dirt, and we'll create personalized route suggestions based on where other Strava athletes have gone before.

Check it out by tapping the Explore tab in the app, and if you don’t already have a subscription to Strava, you can start a free trial from there to dive in. We'll be improving this feature every chance we get, so let us know what you think. And if you decide to head out, please follow your local regulations and put the health and safety of yourself and others first.

Activity Cropping on Mobile
February 21, 2020

Kept recording on the drive home? Now you can crop your activity right from the mobile app. Just tap into any activity you need to crop and then hit the three dots icon (ie. [...]) in the upper right corner to find the new crop tool. From there, you’ll be able to precisely adjust the start and end times. Clean up those 65 mph KOMs or post-marathon 32-minute mile splits and showcase your activity exactly as it was meant to be.

Apple Watch – make the connection
February 14, 2020

Lots of you have been wanting to get your Apple Watch workouts directly onto Strava, and now, the first version of connecting to Apple Health is ready to go. See your last 30 days of activities, choose which ones you want to sync to Strava, and then title, add photos and edit them as usual.

The connection works both ways too, so when you record on Strava, you can automatically send your workout to Apple Health.

What if your hilly run was flat?
February 7, 2020

We can't take the sting out of running uphill, but we can give you more credit for your effort with Grade Adjusted Pace (GAP).

GAP is a subscription feature that converts your uphill or downhill pace to an equivalent pace on flat land, and if you've already been using it on the web, you'll be happy to know you can now see it in the app as well.

Use it to check if you were keeping steady over rolling terrain, or compare your uphill intervals to flat ones. These are just a couple ways you can use GAP to analyze your next run. Time to hit the hills!

Fresh tracks for skiers and snowboarders
January 31, 2020

If you've swapped out your shoes and pedals for boots and boards, you'll be keen on a couple tweaks we made in our latest round of map updates. These new maps support ski resorts around the world so you can see chairlifts and popular runs, giving you a clearer sense of where you were slashing turns during those storm days. And subscribers can access a new white color scheme to highlight the terrain and add some snowy style to your activities.

Give it a look, and try it out next time you're in the mountains.

Your Training Progress, at a Glance
