The Stryd Workout app provides the best experience when doing a structured power-based workout. The app will guide you step-by-step through your workout. For each workout segment, the watch will show you power, target power range, time left in the segment, etc. You can get audible and vibrate notification when you exceed or fall short of your power target. The Stryd Workout app has several data screens and allows customization of which metrics are shown while running.
- Instead of the using the Garmin modes such as "Run", "Treadmill", etc., select the Stryd Workout App. The Stryd Workout App will record all data and your run will show up in Garmin Connect and other platforms after your run.
- The first time you run with the Stryd Workout App, the watch will automatically pair with your Stryd. After your first run, your watch will only grab data from your own Stryd (so no problem if you run with other Stryders).
- By default, the Stryd Workout app in in outdoor mode, and will automatically record the GPS map.
- You can customize the data screens and data fields.
Note: You will need to have a structured workout scheduled in your Stryd calendar within the next 2-5 days in order for the workouts to load to the Stryd Workout App. To add a workout to your Stryd calendar you can either import structured run workouts to your Stryd calendar from third-party platforms, add a structured workout to your calendar using the Workout Builder/ Workout Library feature, or add a Stryd training plan to your account.
