Watch This App: Strava Running and Cycling GPS

strava_g_watch

Biking, jogging, and running gets even better now that Strava offers support for Android Wear. Users can now start and stop activities using their voice, keeping smartphones tucked away neatly and securely. No more worrying about dropping your handset as you pull it out to check your stats.

A wonderful app for those who spend a lot of time getting their fitness on, we love the simple and inviting interface of Strava. Users can explore places to bike and hike, share images and tips with others, and much more.Climb the leaderboards and challenge yourself to better your times and achievements. While the free app might suffice for most, the premium experience adds in real-time details for yourself and friends, access to videos, and immediate performance results.

The Watch This App column is designed to help educate readers in the various apps available for the platform and highlight the best of the bunch. Some are updated apps that have been around for a while; others are brand new and are designed specifically for the Android Wear platform.
