  4. Tap on Health under Services.

Similar to Apple Watch, you can sync your workout and fitness data with Strava using other devices as well. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, Amazfit Bip supports Strava workout data sync, just like Apple Watch.

Hope this helps to sync the Strava app with your Apple Health and Fitness app. We see that the permission to the health app is not completing when an exiting user trying to give access. In that case, the best solution will be to reinstall the Strava app and give permission again to Apple Health.

  1. Thank you! This has been driving me crazy since the first of June when my watch quilt listing my strava activity, even though I use my watch to record my activity.

  2. As others have mentioned- thank you! The suggestion to open the Strava settings was not even something I considered or found anywhere else in my attempts to troubleshoot this issue. I found an old thread from Apple that suggested there was a way from iPhone to manually sync, but I found no such option. It makes sense, now that I’ve read this, that Strava allows manual syncing in its settings!
