Given the large number of sports applications used in the most diverse activities, Apple tries to centralize all health and sport information in a single application. However, the various tools also want to collect data from sports activities. In that sense, Strava brought a good news.
Now, Apple Watch users can directly synchronize their workouts automatically with Strava without a third-party workaround. This thanks to a new update of the HealthKit launched this week.
Apple Watch and Strava …
Previously, users of the Strava app had to download a paid third-party application to synchronize their training data. Now, with the HealthKit update released this week, the user can now transfer their recorded training with the Apple Watch Training app directly to the Starva record.
How to activate the feature:
- Open the Strava app and select Profile;
- In the upper right corner click on the gear wheel (the Settings);
- Go to Applications, services and devices and select Health;
- If not, associate your Apple Watch. Click the Health option.
- Within Health Settings click on the + (plus) sign to associate Health
- Now within Health activate all categories;
- You will now see more options and your training in the last 30 days.
So, as the pictures show, the process is simple and will allow you to automatically import activities from Apple Watch to Strava from now on. In addition, as was already possible, you will then have to send Strava to the Health app.
As you may already know, within this app there is a lot of information related to your physical activity and beyond.
