I have the new Google Pixel Watch and moving from a Polar Vantage V sports watch. The app seems to work fine in terms of start and stop and activity upload but isn't quite as good at getting feedback during the workout. A couple of things I miss:

- When running getting a notification (e.g. vibration) at the end of each km and telling me the time for the last km on the screen. I find that's better feedback than the instantaneous speed which is always a bit erratic on smart watches.

- When both running and cycling (even though I have the watch set to always on display) the Strava app blanks the screen until I lift the watch up. This isn't too bad when running but is a bit more of a movement than I would normally do. When cycling though (I guess because of my position) lifting my wrist up doesn't turn the screen on.

Other than that I think the GPS and heart rate tracking may actually be better than on my Polar. I haven't tried the built in FitBit app but will give it a go and see if it has the above features that I miss.

I actually posted this in 'Strava Features chat' and it got moved to 'Devices and Connections' and then to here in 'Ideas'. It's not really written as a feature request (there are two things to start). I thought I'd see what what other people thought first but ok.
