How to do a Structured Workout

Stryd Power-Based Workouts.

Updated over a week ago

Structured workouts on the watch can only be performed on Garmin Connect IQ 3.0 watches, and Apple Watch series 2 and above.

Even if your watch is not compatible, you can still perform Stryd Workouts with other watches. You will just need to memorize the workout or manually enter the Stryd Workout into your compatible platform.

Garmin Watch Users

If you have a newer Garmin watch, please make sure that you either update your Stryd Zones Data Fields or install the Stryd Garmin Workout app.
