Apple Workout triggering STRAVA Beacon

Is there a way to have a STRAVA Beacon started when starting an apple activity? My Garmin Felix automatically sends a STRAVA beacon when beginning a run, so I was hoping this can work with an Apple workout as well.

Hi @anthonymunoz 

I understand.  Thanks for clarifying that. 

Strava Beacon isn't compatible with the Apple Watch Workout App.   Since you have the Garmin Fenix device which supports the Garmin LiveTrack feature, one workaround would be to record with both the Garmin device and the Apple Watch App.  Activate Livetrack on Garmin to give you the tracking functionality but then delete the duplicate upload from Strava.

Hi @anthonymunoz 

Thanks for posting.  Are you using an Apple Watch to record your workouts?  Check out these instructions for using Beacon on Apple Watch.

You can also use Beacon with the Strava IOS App and your Garmin device.  Full instructions are here.

I hope that's helpful!

Hi Jane,

Thank you for the reply. I am not using the Strava app to record my activities. I am using the Apple Workouts app because it is more in depth and customizable. When I was using my Garmin Fenix , the Gartmin app as the ability to automatically trigger the Strava Beacon (without using the Strava app), so I was hoping Apple Workout has the ability to do this.
