You will need to long press the screen of the Apple Watch Stryd App for the Run Control Screen to appear in order to end or pause the run. Once you long press the screen, you will be presented with options on how to finish or pause the run.
Alternatively, after updating to v7.3.2 or later, If you are unable to long press the screen, you can scroll to the top of the screen for the Run Control Screen to appear to finish or pause the run.
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!
The scroll down option to enter the screen where you can stop or pause the run only works if you scroll exactly from the middle of the Apple Watch screen. If you scroll from the top or bottom screen you get into Apple’s system screen (messages or Apple setup), very annoying when you are in the middle of a run and want to stay focussed. It would be much better to swipe from the left ( like NRC or the built in Apple Health).
The hard pressing of the screen to stop a run works only from the middle of the screen AND if you are not in swiping mode (what can happen very easily when you are tired, sweating and have your watch under your running clothes/gloves). Stryd can improve here and should take a look at the interface of Apple Health, Strava, NRC and Adidas, who never have these problems as far as I’m concerned. Every run with failing technique is a disappointment and reason to move to another platform. As Stryd is used by more professional runners every lost second counts, so the user interface should be superior to the concurrents.
