Strava Relative Effort

Description

Get street cred for your sweat. The Strava real-time Relative Effort app analyzes your heart rate during a workout and ranks your total activity effort. The deeper you dig and the longer you hold, the higher your Relative Effort.</p><p></p><p>Relative Effort requires a built-in optical heart rate sensor or a paired heart rate monitor. Be sure your Garmin and Strava heart rate zones are the same.</p>

Used once. The result produced by the app was about three time larger than on the web. Hr zones matches. Good idea but now is useless. I will try next versions when they arrive.

Won’t let me uninstall. Useless app

It gives me a number, but is never anywhere near what is shown in strava web or app - generally it is about 30% of the web number. Are the configured hr numbers meant to be the top of the zones (eg. from z5 = max hr and down) or are they meant to be the bottom of each zone (the same as shown in strava web) ???

The concept is great - track your Strava Relative Effort in real time. Downloaded to my Garmin Edge 520 and data field setup worked well. The app's data display was too large to fit in the data field display. That is, the top quarter of the value display was clipped at the top. On long rides, I stop to rest for long enough that the Garmin powers down. When I power it up and resume the ride, this data field has reset to 0. In this case, I can't track the entire ride. I couldn't find any way to view the value after the ride, so I couldn't compare the final value provided by this app to the effort value displayed on the Strava website after the activity is uploaded to Strava. Based on the values I checked on the app's data field late in rides, the app overestimates effort by 30% to 100% compared to Strava's website calculation, depending on the length and intensity of the ride. This inaccuracy drops the rating from 3 stars to 1 star. Uninstall seemed to work ok.

I'd got it. But result is always zero. Why?

Alan Clucas

It always gives a significantly higher number than Strava itself, so useless.

Ben

Good idea, but as the numbers are totally wrong it is useless

Still. Not. Working.

Extremely confusing to configure the heart rate zones, and looking at other reviews other people have the same problem.

The data with Strava do not match although I have set the same heart rates. The relative effort of the application corresponds exactly to double that Strava...

Jorge Luis Reyes

El problema es que no te dejan habilitada la opción para hacer ajustes de tus zonas, de nada sirve tener bien configurado el Garmin y Strava, si la app tiene sus propios números preestablecidos y no los puedes cambiar de acuerdo a tus zonas reales.

Nils Dahl
May 9, 2020 | Version 2.0.6

Grossly underestimates Realtive Effort real time. End result after syncing with Strava is often 3-5 times higher effort. Not sure what the issue is.

Ángeles
May 6, 2020 | Version 2.0.6

Completely useless to me. No clue where to find this, or if it's "set up" properly. I expect some kind of instructions when I use something new. As far as I'm concerned, if you make something and don't tell anyone how to use it, then what you've made is a pile of useless crap.

Héctor Solano

No es tan complicado instalarlo, lo realmente malo es que los datos no son exactos, aun cuando las zonas de frecuencia cardíaca tanto de Garmin como de Strava sean las mismas.

jimiC
April 26, 2020 | Version 2.0.6

Highly inaccurate. Despite setting the zones EXACTLY to the same as GC and Strava the over-estimation is downright unbelievable. Previous session, app = 235, Strava = 85. Latest session, app = 49, Strava = 15.

Tamas

Great to have my relative effort in real time during my activity. It's data field so you need to add it under activity -> settings -> data screens
