Strava for iOS Gains HealthKit Integration for Importing Apple Watch Workouts

Strava for iOS was today updated with improved HealthKit integration, allowing users to import Apple Watch workouts into the Strava app.


Prior to today's update, Strava users had to rely on third-party solutions like the Healthfit app to share workouts between the Apple's Health records and Strava. Now they can import workouts recorded on iPhone or ‌Apple Watch‌ directly into the app.

To enable the Apple Health import feature, users should go to the Settings in the Strava app and select Applications, Services, and Devices. Then choose the Health app and any workouts recorded through Apple's native app should be available to upload to Strava.

In addition, today's update adds the ability to crop user activity recorded on ‌iPhone‌, which is useful if GPS tracking has been left running for too long. Summit members can also now see their heart rate, power, and Grade Adjusted Pace on Segments.

Strava: Run, Ride, Swim is a free download for ‌iPhone‌ and iPad available on the App Store. A premium Strava membership costs $7.99 per month.

Seems crazy that you have to get and pay for a third party app to sync your data from one Apple product to another.


Indeed it sounds crazy. Thankfully that has never been the case. This news is about Apple framework support in the Strava iOS app, hth. The paid apps you're talking about sync Healthkit data to various 3rdparty apps, not from the Watch to the iPhone.

Healthfit is not free but it's very cheap, one time purchase, the developer does a great job.
It's my best app purchase with workoutdoors.
When you can pay for a watch+iphone, you can pay 5$ for a great app

Exactly the same for me : WorkOutDoors and HealthFit are my 2 preferred apps.
