Question: Are these features going to come to other sports watches?
Apple Watch: Right now, the Stryd Apple Watch app is already capable of executing run power-based structured workouts. You can find a tutorial on that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyrT0s5f2S0&list=PLhxodaVHsU5JEyulKcEBfEaG6MfnjHwud&index=4&t=0s
Previous generation Garmin watches: Due to the advanced and full featured nature of this app, we can only bring it to Connect IQ 3.0+ watches right now. However, we would like to bring a slimmed down version of this app to previous generation Garmin watches in the future.
For other sports watches: The development platforms offered by Apple & Garmin allow us to create custom applications for these watches to provide structured workout capability. We hope the new Stryd app sets the stage and creates a proof-of-concept so that run power-based structured training can be adopted by other sports watch manufacturers in the future!
Question: Can I import my workout from Stryd, TrainingPeaks, FinalSurge, or another training platform?
Right now, you can only create workouts inside of the app. That means you will have to recreate your workout from these platforms inside of the Stryd app.In an upcoming update, you will be able to import workouts from your Stryd account into the watch
Question: When should I use this app? Should I still use Stryd Zones or Stryd PowerRace?
This app is most beneficial when executing a complex structured workout.
For easy runs, long runs, and simple workouts, you should continue to use the Stryd Zones data field inside of the Run mode on your watch.
For races, you should continue to use PowerRace or your Stryd Zones data field.
