Galaxy Watch and Strava

Frustrated to say the least. 

Why can't all these apps just play nice together 🙄

I'll be cancelling my Strava subscription I think, cheaper than a Garmin 😏

Shame though. 

Thanks for replying so fast

If you can get it to sync to anything (I couldn't) - then your data is held hostage at Samsung. If you can get it to sync anywhere, you can probably get it to Strava using a service like tapiriik

I'll give that a try, thanks again x

I guess I'll have to be the bringer of good news....

 

Strava and Samsung just launced the native Strava App for their watches!!

I was holding out for this news before I placed my order for two galaxy watches for me and my wife!

 

A friend of mine is already running the native app on his gear S3 since yesterday.

 

Apparently live segments will also work.

And in future will be able to connect to external HRM strap. 

I hope these two will come true, but nontheless, so happy that we finally get a native Strava App on Samsung watches!!

That's good news. However, I could already get my data to Strava by using Endomondo... 

 

I just want the ***** HR-monitor to work - Not using a HR-strap

Awesome! Thanks for updating the thread.

Tried it out today, and it works pretty well. The GPS coordinates seem good, and uploading to Strava takes 10-20 seconds top. Don't know how accurate the HRM is, but that's not as important for me to be honest.

How did you get to work?  We have loaded the Strava app and connected using the 4 number code and although it records the run on the wat h and syncs to Samsung health app it’s not syncing to the Strava app.

I'm having the very same issue ... Any suggestions would be great.

Also having the same issue which is so frustrating as it's the reason I went for this watch

Mine worked fine up until a week or two ago.. Since then I cannot get my watch strava to sync any of my activities with my phone Strava!! This is getting ridiculous seeing so many people having the same issue! To top it all, when I tap the activity on my phone to sync manually, it doesn't work, plus it drains my watch battery within minutes from full charge to zero. Then I also get a warning that watch is overheating.. I've checked that Strava is the only app running when this happens. And it happens EVERYTIME I try to manually sync an activity..without any success! Samsung and Strava needs to bring an update to this issue ASAP..
