The app shows the current power, average power, HR and distance plus a black dot that moves across the screen as you run, it words well if that's all you want to see. There is no way I would use this to try and get a PR (as suggested) as no where does it show the time or a prediction of a finishing time. You can change the target power by using the up/down buttons (which is good) but you then have to press the start/stop button to get off the screen I thought this should be automatic.

I used this app with around the bay and it performed amazing. Since I have used it for 5K and 10K trials and it keeps me focused on what’s important. And cuts out the rest.
May 25, 2020 | Version February 4, 2020
Could be amazing, however for me:
The fields are oversized, on the fenix 6s screen, meaning the you can't see some of the numbers.
The most annoying thing is the vibrate out of zone. It's distracting, and unable to be turned off. 1/2 way through a half marathon I realised that it was really annoying me and I couldn't stop it! Won't be using again until this is fixed.
Love the pod, the software need to catch up, please!

Only request, smaller power range please?

I know it's called Racing IQ, but I'd like to see the possibility to set interval ranges like Garmin has.

I have both stryd zones and stryd power race app on my forerunner 235,stryd zones works great on my watch,but stryd power race is not usable.It will automatically turn down my watch after run a few(about 3~5km) km,and restart my watch,automatically swtich my stryd zones page.Cant find any solution about it.

Recent updates (user selection of fields and power averaging) greatly appreciated. Could the app remember the last power target value used and distance i.e. have a 'quick start' mode as the default and the user has to press 'up' if they want to deviate from their default values - i.e. just want to rock up to my weekly Park Run 5K and press the start button and it retrieves my default values. i.e. keep it simple. Apart from that its a very useful app.
May 26, 2019 | Version May 2, 2019
Does what it should do. The only thing that is really nagging: if Stryd loses connection with the watch, there's no warning, just the last value is shown.

I used STRYD PowerRace, in a 30k race for the first time. I did very well and the app worked well.
I think that the top main number should be user set to either instant,1,3,5,10 sec power. I personally use 3sec in normal training and it works awesome.
The top number is locked to instant power and I found it a little tricky to dial in the perfect pace at times. But average pace in the lower right corner helps keep you on track as well.
I have conflicting thoughts about a timer. On one hand I say it need one, if you are trying to clear a time goal, having a timer allows you try to clear a time goal, or that final push to clear whatever time goal you are going for.
On the other hand not having it lets the race go the way it is supposed to go & possibly keeps you from over reaching for a time goal.
Power race did work great, with the power alerts and minimilist design and data fields.
Would I use Stryd power race for my next race! YES! But I really want 3 second power option instead of instant power for the main number!!
Love my STRYD! STRYD support and community is amazing.

Please add "remember last target power and distans" so we don't need to fibble too much before running. Thanks great app, keep powering

Dear developer of the Stryd PowerRace,
I have a Garmin 920XT.
On the screen, I can see the actual power, the lap power and the average power.
And the number of km's.
How can I change the fields? For example, how could I get elapsed time on the screen?
I would welcome your answer!
February 25, 2019 | Version June 26, 2018
- Bigger font for distance
- Make it more useful in intervals. Or add power target/alarms to the Stryd Running app instead.
Regarding displaying current pace, I actually enjoy it being missing. That is the whole point: we run with target power and we get pace as an outcome. If I had pace displayed, I'd be tempted to "correct" it by burning excess energy on slight uphills or otherwise running slower where I could run at my target power. It messes up with the whole idea of sticking to constant power throughout the race. Lap alerts provide enough pace data, IMHO. Feeling fresh, think your last mile was a bit slow? Press Up and Enter.

I like my Stryd footpod and I think Stryd are a great company, but these IQ apps are terrible. The PowerRace app in particular isn't up to the clean aesthetics of a Garmin UI, and part way through my run my power just flatlined for the rest of the workout! You definitely can't depend on it and I would be pretty bummed out if it screwed up a race I'd been training for. In future I'll just use the power data field along with Pace and Average Pace, as I've been doing up till now.
February 5, 2019 | Version June 26, 2018
In race i want to see power but not only...i want to see pace also..and distance of course....i don't care about heart rate when i race...so this app must be rebuilt the screen with bigger font and another display with watts, pace, distance.
I suppose the developer should "respect" garmins button function and should correct the up - down button, (when pressed there is no way to return to the main screen since the return button marks the lap..really strange button behavior)
September 3, 2018 | Version June 26, 2018
Good to have dedicated app for Stryd though it doesn't look as well on a square watchface. But on my VAHR, "enter" is mapped to touch screen. This is really a bad idea! Please use the hardware buttons. Also increasing/decreasing power is mapped to "scroll left/right" on touch screen. Would be nice to be fixed in the next release. The distance measure would be good to be in metrics unit and half steps.

Other stride apps are working great but when I try to start this one it resets my watch. Unusable on fenix3.
March 2, 2018 | Version October 3, 2017-upd2
Great job! It works perfectly with my Fenix 5x. But would it be possible to add a bigger font for distance data or an additional field with distance? I can hardly see the distance while I run. Please!!
October 9, 2017 | Version October 3, 2017
I miss fields of pace and elapsed time.
October 3, 2017 | Version October 3, 2017
Looks nice. But you should add default targets like half-marathon / marathon. Also the touch display isn't a good idea. Looking forward to see a new version.
August 5, 2017 | Version Launch-v3-upd
Hello, in Europe we use by default metric. On settings it will be useful to have lap (1k) and total distance in km, thanks! Continue the good work
August 4, 2017 | Version Launch-v3-upd
Great app. But giving 1 star for the simple reason that it starts/stops by touching the screen (vivoactive HR) making it too easy to screw up your run. Would be perfect if it used the buttons to start/stop
July 5, 2017 | Version Launch-v3
The Idea is interesting, but the numbers (HR, AP and Power) are misplaced on Fenix 5S. They should be a few pixels down the screen.
June 13, 2017 | Version Launch-v3
Causes a reset on watch when I try to start the app. Garmin Fenix 3 HR with firmware 4.30. Firmware on stryd is 1.12.
June 12, 2017 | Version Launch-v3
Great app,....plenty of "space" for improvment:
- AVG pwr LAP;
- NP LAP;
- implementation for workout/intervall
June 6, 2017 | Version Launch-v3
I love Stryd's other apps everytime I try to start this one it causes my watch to restart and wont work.

Please email me at [email protected] and we can get this fixed very quickly.
Thanks for running with Stryd.
