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...

June 3, 2017 | Version 1.9.2

I always found the Stava suffer score data field to differ from the www, Strava have been useless to sort it, I have an open case that is 7 months old! Now like everyone else this data field has stopped working since changing HR zones. Logged the problem with Strava, they have just blamed Garmin.....

May 24, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Used to work but now I am having the same problem as a lot of other reviewers in that it crashes after editing HR zones

May 8, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Stopped working after updating HR zones on my Fenix 5X

April 25, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Updated zones on my Fenix 5x and now it doesn't work at all.

April 21, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Updated zones on my Edge 520 and now it doesn't work at all.

April 16, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Updated zones on my FR630 and now it doesn't work at all.

April 7, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

I just downloaded & added data screen to my FR235. Do I need a premium membership with strava to use the suffer score?

April 4, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

I've just bought a Garmin Forerunner 935. This watch has the same functionality as the Fenix 5, but it does not appear on this list of compatible devices? Please confirm if this App is compatible with the Forerunner 935?

March 29, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Great idea, but crashes if you edit the HR zones on an Edge 820, which makes it unusable.

March 21, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

This is pointless. Like so many others here, the score on my edge 520 is half that on Strava. Zones identical, Garmin synced and it's still pants. Shame as it seemed a nice feature. To the developers - Don't use us a Beta testers. Get your act together.

March 10, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Once you discover that you have to add the widget as another data screen it works perfectly. However take note of your score before you stop your activity. It does not save to your stats unless you have Strava Premium.

March 5, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Nice touch to see the Suffer Score live but, despite double checking my HR zones on the Garmin and Strava match, it still underestimates for me. The good news is that it consistently does so which means I know I have to add roughly 15% to the score on my Garmin to get an approximation. It's especially useful if you're looking to put in a certain effort ride with a view on your fitness and freshness.

March 2, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

a funzionare a che serve?!?! Che c'è bisogno di qualcuno che ci dica quanto stiamo soffrendo?

February 26, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Version 1.9.1 finally works! Score on Garmin 520 and Strava Score is identical. Thanks a lot, Garmin! Now I can plan my training with live scoring!

February 25, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

It's kind of cool to get this data point in real time rather than waiting until the upload to Strava. However the suffer score shown on the Edge 520 is nowhere close to the Suffer Score shown on Strava after I upload the workout. The live Suffer Score shown on the Edge is about double what is shown on the Strava App. So, 2 stars because the data is, well, wrong.

February 7, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

To get the suffer score in Strava you needed a premium account ??

February 7, 2017 | Version 1.9.1

Please Fix the Issues with Fenix 3 HR Error screen after editing the HR zones

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..

December 26, 2016 | Version 1.7

November 21, 2016 | Version 1.7

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