When recording a run, allow display of the live run pace (min/km or min/mile) and average run pace across the whole activity. 

As a Strava Subscriber, I can only see the average pace within a split (mile or km). This is very strange because:

  • Free athletes can view the total average pace while Strava Subscribers cannot. This is actually much more useful to know if you are on track to meet a target time in a race.
  • You can view speed in km/h or mph by recording as a ride first show here ( which is easy to convert into running pace from a programming perspective, but very difficult to convert to the more common running pace during a race.
  • You cannot gauge your pace during intervals shorter than a single split - live run pace would allow me to see how fast I am for 200m, 300m, 400m intense intervals for example.

These features are used in other apps (e.g Withings Health Mate), and would be easy to implement, and very useful here.

Thanks for submitting your idea to display both the live pace and the average pace on the activity recording screen. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.

I don't use the Strava App when running because the Apple fitness App does a better job. It's like Strava developers hate Apple. My guess is they own garmin


It would be very useful to see the live average speed while recording a ride on the mobile and Apple watch apps. 

The average speed is currently only displayed while the live ride is paused or at the end of the ride. 

I often use the Apple activity app to record rides because it shows my average speed at all times.
