Strava now available for Apple Watch Series 2

, the social network for athletes, has introduced a newly developed app for the Apple Watch Series 2.

Strava athletes can now take full advantage of the watch’s GPS capabilities by recording their time, pace, distance, speed and heart rate without having to use their iOS device.

Athletes already running Strava on their Apple Watch will see the App update automatically when they update it on their iOS device. Athletes can install Strava by visiting the App Store on their iOS device.

Says Mateo Ortega, Head of Integration for Strava:
“Research and athlete feedback often drives new Strava features and integrations. We’re excited to add to our growing list of compatible devices, and see this as the first step in providing our athletes an excellent Strava experience on the Apple Watch Series 2. Our athletes can look forward to continued updates as we strive to provide the best Watch experience possible.”

The Apple Watch Series 2 joins more than 100 other GPS devices that already work seamlessly with Strava.

Earlier this month, Strava announced its Android Wear 2.0 app, which also allows athletes to take full advantage of an enhanced, untethered experience all from their wrist.

You can download Strava for iOS or Android and upgrade to Strava Premium to access the latest features such as Beacon and Live Segments. To learn more visit
