Please can you provide options/links to Shortcuts to start, pause, resume and finish activities, with the options to pick which type.

This will be very useful to include Strava in longer shortcuts, or even deeper integration with the Apple Watch and complications, and also the Apple Watch Ultra Action Button (which can be used to launch a shortcut).

If considering these Shortcuts, can you also include starting an activity (and maybe other controls) on the Apple Watch, not just the iPhone. I much prefer using the Apple Watch to record Strava as it has heart rate tracking.

Shortcut actions I’d really like to see available:

  • Start activity
  • Pause activity
  • Stop activity 
  • Get current activity (check if one is running to use If statements)

Preferably with the options to choose which type of activity - or at least your favourite one.

And that they work on whichever device runs the shortcut - so either iPhone or Apple Watch.


Yes, please add support for the Apple Watch Ultra action button, that would be great!
