Strava Integration

WHOOP members can enable a one-way integration to upload WHOOP activities to Strava. 

Once you connect your WHOOP account to Strava, all of your activities going forward will be uploaded with corresponding heart rate data, WHOOP metrics, and GPS route (if activity is tracked in Strain Coach).


To connect your WHOOP account to Strava:

From within the WHOOP app, tap Menu > Settings > Integrations > Strava:

Connect and authorize the connection to Strava. If you don't have the Strava app installed, you will be prompted to log in through the Strava web app:

Once connected, choose which WHOOP data you would like to have included on your activity in the Strava app:

You are now connected! Activities you log in WHOOP going forward will get pushed to Strava automatically, and look something like the following:




How do I upload my Heart Rate data to Strava?

In order to upload your Heart Rate data, you must first enable Health-Related Data in the Strava app (click HERE, or open the Strava app > Profile > Settings > "Data Permissions" > "Health-Related Data", as shown below). Once this is enabled, Heart Rate data will upload automatically with your activities.

How do I upload my GPS route to Strava?

In order to track and upload your GPS route, track your activities in Strain Coach with "Track Route" toggled ON. When you press "Start Activity", you will see your route reflected within Strain Coach using your phone's GPS signal. For a list of WHOOP GPS trackable activities, please tap HERE. For more information on tracking your route with WHOOP, tap HERE.


Do I need to pay for Strava?

No, you can use a free account. 


Can I edit an activity once it's been uploaded to Strava?

Yes, you can edit or delete activities as you normally would within the Strava app. To refresh heart rate or GPS data, you'll need to re-trigger the upload from within the WHOOP app. To do this, delete the activity from both Strava and WHOOP, and then add it manually again in WHOOP.


Can I pull Strava activities into WHOOP?

No, the integration is currently just one-way. Strava cannot push information to the WHOOP app.


I see a 404 error after authorizing the connection on Android - How can I fix this?

If prompted, ensure that you open the link back from Strava with the WHOOP app.

If you aren't prompted, hold down on the WHOOP app icon from your home screen -> App info -> Scroll down to "Set as default" -> Ensure "Go to supported URLs" is set to either "In this app" or "Always Ask" -> Try authorizing again. This setting will ensure that you can open the link back from Strava with the WHOOP app.


I see a "something went wrong" error after authorizing the connection on Android - How can I fix this?

Some members have reported issues authorizing from Strava's beta app from Google Play. If you're signed up as a beta tester of Strava, you can either:

i) Authorize through Strava's web portal, by opening authorization link with your web browser, or

ii) Leave the beta group (Google Play -> Strava -> Leave), reinstall the Strava app to get the previous version, then try connecting to Strava again. Once connected, you should be able to rejoin the beta tester group without issues.


How do I fix incorrect activity start times in Strava?

If the activity time shown in Strava is incorrect for an activity without GPS, you may need to update your default location in Strava (link HERE). 


My max and average Heart Rate are different in Strava and WHOOP - why?

While the underlying heart rate date used for both is the same, Strava does some additional processing that can result in slight differences. In particular, Strava will filter out GPS and associated HR data for times when you're not moving, which can result in different average and max heart rates than shown in WHOOP.


How does this work with another device I have linked up to Strava? (Garmin, Apple Watch, Wahoo, bike computer)

Duplicate activities should not be displayed if multiple devices are connected to Strava, though every device will work differently. We don't have any control over what other services post. For example, though, if you have both WHOOP and a Garmin 735XT synced to Strava, Strava will pull Garmin's data over WHOOP and only one activity will be posted so this will not cause duplication of activities and skew weekly mileage. 


How do I disable automatic uploads?

If you'd like to disable automatic uploads, turn off the "Share Activity" toggle in the WHOOP app > Menu > Settings > Integrations > Strava. You can also disconnect from Strava completely on this screen.
