Let’s dive into the features.
New: Your Power Is Easier to View with New Customization Options
New: High Contrast Mode
High contrast mode makes it easy to view your real-time power output! The main power averaging value color will match the target indicator color you see in the workout target bar to add contrast to the background.
The colored text also doubles as a target indicator. Your power value will be blue if you are under target, green if you are in the target range, and red if you are above target.
New: Power Averaging Option
Now, you can change the power averaging that you see on the main display.
Choose from the following options:
- Real time power
- 3-second power
- 10-second power
- 30-second power
- Lap power
- Overall power
You will want to choose the value that makes the most sense for your workout for the best experience. Steady-state workouts can benefit from a longer average and interval sessions can benefit from a shorter average.
View More Data With A Secondary Metric
Do you need more than a power value to guide your run? Now, you have the ability to enable a secondary metric to show on the workout screen underneath your power value. You can choose between any of the metrics that we have available in the ‘free run’ mode. Some popular options are pace, distance, and heart rate!
Plus, a New Font
The update includes a new font which makes it easier to view your power output. The font is bigger and bolder, especially for numerical values, to make it easier than ever to quickly see power and the rest of your data!
New: Improved Audio Cues.
Improved Speech Annunciation and Pacing
Have you been enjoying the audio cues in the Stryd Apple Watch app? We made the cues even better with improved speed annunciation and pacing. It is easier than ever to execute an “eye-free” power-based workout by purely listening to the Stryd app to guide your run!
New Lap Summary Cue
Just going for a run? We have a new feature for you too! We added a lap summary speech cue for the ‘free run’ mode. You get periodic updates on how you are doing to keep your run on track.
Please update to the latest version of the Stryd iOS app (>7.11.0) in order to get started with this new update.
