The benefits of connecting Strava to Apple Health
If you’re an iPhone user and a Strava addict, connecting the two can have some advantages. Here’s what happens when you connect Strava to Apple Health.
When you allow Strava to read and write data to Apple Health, you give it access to all of the health and fitness data that the Health app collects. That includes data from your iPhone’s sensors, as well as data from any third-party apps that you’ve connected to Apple Health.
The benefit of connecting Strava to Apple Health is that it gives Strava a more complete picture of your activity. When it has access to your health data, it can better track things like your heart rate and calorie burn. And if you have an Apple Watch, connecting the two will allow Strava to use the watch’s GPS to track your runs and rides more accurately.
If you value privacy, though, you may want to think twice before connecting the two apps. When you allow Strava access to your health data, you’re also giving it access to sensitive information like your weight and body fat percentage. So if privacy is a concern, you may want to stick with using the iPhone’s built-in fitness tracker.
