Good news for Apple Watch wearers - Strava have announced today they now offer complete integration with Apple, meaning you can sync your runs to your Strava account without needing a third-party app.

The same applies to all activities recorded through the Apple Workouts app.

This feature adds to the wide range of integration options offered by Strava, which also announced its recent growth milestone this week. The Strava global sports community now has 50 million registered athletes and over three billion activities recorded on the app.

“We founded Strava to connect athletes, through our technology, to the feeling of camaraderie that comes from being on a team,” says Michael Horvath, CEO and co-founder of Strava. “I’m grateful to the millions of athletes around the world who have joined the Strava community and have now uploaded over 3 billion runs, rides, swims, hikes and other activities. Our employees wake up every day obsessing over our athletes, eager to keep building the innovative experiences that connect them to what motivates them and fuel their active lives.”

Strava celebrated its 1 billionth uploaded activity in May 2017, eight years after its founding, and then saw its 2 billionth activity uploaded just 18 months later, in December 2018. Cycling and running are the most popular activities athletes share, but Strava supports over 30 activity types.
