Strava is a free online and mobile platform that helps you track your training, upload your runs, follow other athletes, hand out kudos as well as join clubs and challenges!
Before you can use Strava you need to sign up and make an account. It is really easy to use and is best used as an activity tracker after your run on your NoblePro E8i or E8.0.
More details can be found here on Strava’s features.
Please note: Users can upgrade to the more advanced features for a monthly fee.
How does Strava and NoblePro treadmills work together?
Our Elite E8i treadmill allows you to upload your sessions directly from the treadmill using the Sidekick app by NoblePro directly to your Strava account. To do this connect your Strava account to the Sidekick app. Once connected you can simply upload the session.
The treadmill will send the following data to Strava via a FIT file:
- Pace per split/average pace in (min/miles or min/km)
- HR per split/Average HR (if HRM connected)
- Elapsed time/moving time
- Elevation (if connected to Zwift – this is not incline % or level)
- Cadence/average cadence
TrainingPeaks vs Strava
TrainingPeaks has many more features than Strava such as finding a coach to help set goals, buying a training plan, creating your own workouts, setting thresholds and zones and performance management charts.
If you don’t need all of these features Strava is great as it can still track your activities and progress as well as plenty of engagement with followers and friends.
What can Strava control and why?
Strava cannot control your treadmill. It is mainly an activity tracker. Strava combines interactive social features such as leaving comments and kudos for your friends with activity tracking technology like MapMyRun or RunKeeper.
If you have a NoblePro Elite E8i, you can log in to your Strava account from the treadmill screen and view your runs and progress. However, it is not currently possible to record indoor runs on Strava’s mobile platform.
Please note: If you have a Strava Apple Watch App you can use your watch’s pedometer so you can measure distance. Strava have created a support page to help explain this.
