Both Nike Run Club and Slopes offer the ability to start a workout on your Apple Watch and for the data the be viewable live on your iPhone (and vice versa). This would be fantastic for those of us who want a larger screen to look at stats during a workout. To on even further, Live Activities would be a great addition. Here is how Slopes implements it with their live workout data from an Apple Watch.
You start an outdoor cycling workout on your Apple Watch but want to use your iPhone to navigate on your handlebars. Would be great to have the data live and viewable on both screens in order to see speed, distance, etc.
As of now, I have to start 2 simultaneous workouts, one on my watch for capturing HR and one on my phone for live speed on my handlebars, and then delete one after. No bueno.
Thanks for submitting your idea. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.
It seems odd that I need to start recording on my watch manually if I have already started recording on my phone and vice versa.
I have my phone, an iPhone 13 on a quad lock mount in front of me on my bike, which I can now use to see my progress against PRs, speed, time, and if I follow a set route, have the map open in front of me. To have all this I obviously have to select to follow a route, or start recording if it is my commute. This does not start recording on the watch, and does not collect any data after the fact. The same is true on the watch, if I record a ride, it will do nothing on the phone app, so I have to start that manually.
What would be better, as a QoL change, is if I start recording on my watch, then it shows the data on the phone, and if I start recording from my phone, then it starts collecting data from the watch.
Agree, pretty much all the watch gives me compared to the phone is heart rate but that’s a crucial piece of info it would be good to have on my phone screen as I ride.
Thanks for your post about using Apple Watch and the Strava IOS App simultaneously. I have merged your suggestion with an existing similar/overlapping suggestion and you can view it here.
