Are you ready to enhance your workout experience? Find some fit friends? Take on some segments? Read on to learn how to connect your Withings tracker to the #1 multi-sport app.
Withings is thrilled to announce the compatibility of its Steel HR, Steel HR Sport and Pulse HR watches with Strava, the world’s largest sports participation platform. The rollout begins today and requires that you update your tracker’s firmware when prompted in the app. Also, go ahead and make sure you have the latest version of the app as well.
With Strava linked to Health Mate, you can easily sync all workouts from your hybrid smartwatch to your Strava feed, where you can review them alongside your rides and runs, enjoy virtual challenges, and see a more accurate picture of the time you spend being active.
Our integration also offers an exclusive Strava watch screen, so you can stay on top of your weekly distance and never miss a kudos. Once you’ve linked Strava (see instructions below), you’ll find this screen option by opening the Health Mate app and going to Devices > Screens customization.> Strava – weekly distance.
And if you want to truly run, bike and swim with the pack, join the official Withings Strava Club, where we inspire each other to go the extra mile/kilometer for our health.
