Apple Watch is theoretically a few hours old now, and the stream of apps for it is being announced already.
We have just heard from Strava that their sport-specific platform will be available for athletes via the Apple Watch. This will provide an active display on the wrist, giving real time user feedback, weekly preview, as well as making full use of Apple Watch’s sensors.
Following is the full release from them:
Apple Watch Harnesses Power of Strava’s Intuitive, Sport-specific Platform for Athletes
“Apple has shaped the space it operates in by pushing the boundaries of technology and design. Strava has been on a similar journey, connecting a global community of athletes through its innovative products and experience,” said Erik Joule, Strava’s chief marketing and commerce officer. “The redesigned app will extend the breadth of Strava’s product portfolio from web (strava.com) and mobile (iOS and Android apps) to the most anticipated wearable device of our time, Apple Watch.”
“Strava is committed to enhancing the experience for the athlete before, during and after each of his or her activities,” said Kyle Yugawa, design lead at Strava. “Strava for Apple Watch fulfills a big part of this commitment by delivering an optimum ‘live’ experience that leverages Apple’s beautiful design and Strava’s interface.”
