Currently, it is necessary to tell Stryd the incline you are running on by recording your activity with either the Stryd mobile app (Android or iOS), our Apple Watch app, or the Stryd Workout App on Garmin (available for Stryd devices using 2.1.16 firmware or higher). This will adjust the reported power appropriately and factor in the incline into the power value. You can make multiple incline changes during a workout. Once an incline change is applied your power will adjust accordingly.
If you sync your Stryd to the Stryd app (Offline Sync) you will not see any of the incline adjustments that you made during the run. This is because the Stryd pod never knows what the incline is. The power values are adjusted in the app in real time.
Note: If you are running at a 0% or 1% incline indoors, you can record your activity with the device you typically use such as your Garmin watch or other sportswatch. There is no need to record using our app or tell Stryd the incline.
Why is this?
Stryd uses a combination of motion and environmental data to determine your running power.
When running indoors on a treadmill incline, the external running environment does not change as you run. You are essentially climbing in place when running on a treadmill incline. Therefore, it is necessary to tell Stryd the incline you are running at to receive an an appropriate power value when running on the treadmill.
