How do I run with the Stryd app? Use my phone to record a run.

Updated over a week ago

You can record your first run with Stryd on your iPhone or Android using the Stryd Mobile app. Before you start a run, please ensure the correct weight and height settings are saved for the Stryd pod.

You are ready to start your first run with Stryd and the Stryd Mobile app! You must ensure you have downloaded your iPhone or Android with the Stryd app. Check to make sure that the Stryd is paired to the mobile app (the Stryd logo in the top left corner of the app should show a green circle next to the pod icon)

First Run with the Stryd App Instructions:

  1. Click on the Calendar icon on the bottom left of the Summary screen.

  2. Click on the blue “+” button on the top right corner of the Calendar screen.

  3. Select “Start Run”.

  4. From here, you can choose an Indoor or Outdoor activity.

  5. Then select the start button. The button in the bottom left is shaped like the “play” icon.

  6. Once you start running, you will realize that there are Power Zone estimates based on your weight. These zone estimates may feel off until you get a Critical Power, especially in your first run. This is expected.

  7. If you want to see other Stryd metrics, pull up on the Run Time tab.

  8. The other metrics available are Cadence, Pace, and Distance.

  9. Once you are finished, you can select the stop button on the bottom right of the screen.
