Can I do a workout indoors?

You can execute the workout indoors or outdoors. You just need to make sure that your device is set to Indoor Mode or that you are using the built-in Treadmill feature.

Stryd Workout App Troubleshooting

If you are using the Stryd Workout app these tips may help you. If you are using Stryd Zones, these tips will not help.

Why is my workout not showing up on my Garmin watch?

If your workout isn't showing up in the Stryd Workout App but it does appear in your Stryd calendar, we recommend manually loading your workout:

1. Open up the Garmin Connect Mobile app

2. Make sure your watch is connected with the Garmin Connect Mobile app

3. Open the Stryd Workout App on the watch

4. Select 'Workouts'

5. Select 'Fetch Workouts' (Note: You will need to enter your Stryd username before you can load workouts. Be sure that your username is entered before this step. See this article for help >>)

6. The Stryd Workout App will fetch the structured workouts from your Stryd calendar for the next 2 - 5 days

Please note that the Stryd Workout app only fetches runs up to five days out. If workouts are not showing up in the app, check to make sure that you have training scheduled in your Stryd calendar five days from now.

I am receiving an error when trying to sync in my workout!

If you receive an error when trying to sync planned workouts to the Stryd Workout App on your Garmin watch, this means that your watch does not currently have a connection to your mobile phone.

Here is what we recommend to do:

1. Open up the Garmin Connect Mobile or Garmin Connect IQ app on your phone
2. Ensure that a connection is available between your watch and your phone by looking for an active connection inside of the Garmin app
3. Once a connection has been established, open up the Stryd Workout App on the watch and sync workouts again.

This should resolve any errors you are seeing.

If your workouts still have not synced, please ensure that you have entered your correct username into the settings of the Stryd Workout App.

What do the colored blocks represent on the post-run graph?

When a structured workout is completed, it merges with the workout and will present planned vs actual visualizations.


The colored blocks represent the four different ways that your running can be classified: warmup, run (the workout section of a run), recover (usually after a 'run' section), and cool-down.

Those different sections correlate to the information below in the 'splits' section of the post-run screen.


The interval analysis does not match the intervals planned

If you pair a completed run with a planned workout in PowerCenter, it is possible the splits (or laps) will not align with the workout blocks. The result looks something like this:


Note that the actual workout executed matches up with the original workout that was planned. You may have done the workout exactly as it was assigned.

This is the result of auto-lapping on the watch. The auto-lap marker in the file is used to determine the shift between segments of the workout when the run is paired with that planned workout. This can be mitigated by disabling auto-lapping features during structured workouts. Instead, you can manually split (lap button press) the watch when you intend to move into another segment of the workout, or you can utilize Stryd's software designed for executing structured power-based workouts on the Apple Watch and Garmin devices.

There currently is no way to edit the alignment of a workout affected by mistimed splits as this image demonstrates. This editing capability may become available in the future.

Can I do a structured workout in the Stryd mobile app?

Structured workouts can now be executed directly in the Stryd mobile app.

You will start by selecting a workout from the workout library.

The mobile app will then guide you with workout details such as the power targets for your current workout step, the power targets for your next workout step, and a full-screen power gauge to help you visualize whether you are on the right track.

You can even swipe up on the screen to see additional run data like pace and cadence in real-time.

Plus, if you are a Stryd Membership subscriber, you can create your very own power-based workouts and immediately execute them on the Stryd mobile app.
