Strava Live Suffer Score


Live Suffer Score gives you a second-by-second answer to a tricky question: How hard are you trying? Strava analyzes how much time you spend in different heart rate zones and measures total activity effort with a simple rating: The deeper you dig, the longer you can hold on, the higher your Suffer Score. </p><p></p><p>Live Suffer Score is pre-installed on the Forerunner 735XT and works with all...

February 7, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

February 4, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Works as described on my vivoactive hr

January 29, 2017 | Version 1.9

I can not remove this app from my edge 520 though Garmin express, and this still could found on my 520 even i reset my 520 later. does any one know how to remove it?

January 23, 2017 | Version 1.9

Keine Funktion auf vivoactive! Nach der Installation startet die App, zeigt aber keine Daten an. Sobald man die HF-Zonen einstellt zeigt das Datenfeld nur noch einen Fehler an.

January 21, 2017 | Version 1.9

In Edge 1000 and Fenix 3, when i set up my heart rate zones the app crashes showing the IQ error icon. Not usable

January 20, 2017 | Version 1.9

Does nothing on fenix 3HR..

January 7, 2017 | Version 1.9

Doesn't work on the fenix 3 HR - it's telling me that it needs a heart rate monitor. :/

December 26, 2016 | Version 1.7

Nothing different... I prefer all the other data filelds using "heart rate zones"

November 21, 2016 | Version 1.7

Not read HR zones from profile
November 20, 2016 | Version 1.7

Don't work on forrunner235

November 18, 2016 | Version 1.7

4zones? useless

November 13, 2016 | Version 1.6-upd

Does not work on vivoactive hr

November 13, 2016 | Version 1.6-upd

Garmin Edge 520. Doesn't work. I have matched my HR-zones, have the speed sensor installed and it's never the same as the Strava score. About 50%, but not exactly, Also you cannot see the information afterwards on the Garmin device. Sorry: Useless

November 3, 2016 | Version 1.6-upd

I am not sure that it counts points in red correctly from Strava - on Strava these are doubled. I have only had non matching reads when I have a lot of points in the red.

October 26, 2016 | Version 1.6-upd

Works great on Edge 520 once you've typed in your HR zones. Pretty much matches strava website sufferscore for continuous ride. However if you take a café stop the app sufferscore ends up lower than the strava website.

October 23, 2016 | Version 1.6-upd

With application the Strava suffer score is 82 and on the Strava web site is 127 :-(

October 20, 2016 | Version 1.6-upd

October 9, 2016 | Version 1.6

This is a pain to work with it. I am not sure how the premium version works, but definitely this is not luring me into that. At the minimum, I expect the publisher provide some instruction on adding this to data screen and it does not appear normally!

October 7, 2016 | Version 1.6

The heart rate zone input fields do not match my strava account. This app allows you to input 4 zones fields but strava has 5 zones. i've tried putting in the zones assuming the zone 1 is the beginning and then tried again assuming zone 5 is the end to try and match the missing zone... the suffer score never matches. It doesn't work.

October 7, 2016 | Version 1.6

great widget. I use it everyday

October 2, 2016 | Version 1.6

Worked the first time I set up my Run data screens but if I switched activity profiles then came back to Run it would disappear with "Timer" in its place. It also disappears when rebooting the device. Could you please fix this issue? It's very annoying to set up my data screens before going for a run.

September 28, 2016 | Version 1.6

Installed fine on Garmin 520 but Suffer Score on device crazy ie 520 shows score of 29 vs Strava website score of 99...HR settings on both are synced...looking for better option & will try TeunMo per comment above

September 26, 2016 | Version 1.6

Only for Premium members!! I thought at the very least we could try it out for a month, but alas!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
