    Force touch was deprecated on Watch OS7 and thus no longer available. I'm using Watch OS8 and went for my first run. Now I'm unable to stop the run. I've tried long pressing but to no avail...

    Quick update: I restarted my watch and now long pressing works within the Stryd app. So instead of force touch as indicated in the tip above, you'll need to long press the screen during a run to pause or end it.

    I am having a similar problem, just updated to Watch OS8.1 and using Stryd watch version 7.3.1 and neither force touch nor long press seem to be working to give me options to pause or end the run/workout. I have rebooted my watch several times, but still not working. The past 3 runs I have had to force quit the app and manually upload the run afterwards. 

    It would be great to have an additional screen to scroll to for these options, neither force touch nor long press work very well with sweaty wet fingers.

    I’m having the same problem as above. I’ve noticed that there is not a problem to reach the pause/stop screen directly after having started the run but have not been able to reach the menu after my roughly 35 min run.

    Removed the Stryd app from the Phone, thereby removing it from the AW. Reinstalled Stryd, had to re-pair the stryd with the watch and re-register the watch. Same problem after today's run of 49 minutes. Had to force shutdown the app on the watch. Upload to PowerCenter seems to work though, guess that is triggered one app is restarted on AW.

    Yay! v7.3.2 corrected the issue. All is well in the Stryd world, thanks for the quick update!
