I use Strava on my Pixel Watch, but miss some improvements:

1) The ability to lock the screen from the Strava app, hindring accidental taps on screen or crown.

2) When I open the watch app, it would be nice to get the most frequently used activity types on top. Not having to scroll all the way to get right activity each time.

3) Should be good to see a summary of the latest activity also on the watch.

Hoppe to see some improvements soon 👍💪

Agreed,poor integration..you are better off using the Fitbit app and syncing to Strava

on the wear os tile on my galaxy watch 5 I can start running cycling and walking from the tile directly. all other sports I need to scroll through an alphabetically sorted menu.

As I use strava to record primarily cycling and weight training (almost at the very bottom of the list) I would love an option to define my default sports on the tile.

this improves the user experience for many people letting them decide themselves what their three most used sports are.

Great idea, I too would like be able to access 'workout' withought having to scroll through the whole list of activities.

I really wish WearOS would offload one of their button functionality into the app so we could use a physical button to pause/resume a run with gloves on etc.

Yes! Workout and hiking, I hate having to stand around awkward scrolling to get my watch setup before I can start. This should be customizable.

I bought the Pixel Watch 2, thinking I would replace my Garmin devices, but nope! The data is somewhat meaningless without being able to pause the activity. Definitely not going to run with this, which really blows, because I never run with a phone and bought the LTE watch. You would think Google would have hired someone who actually runs and bikes when they designed the second generation of their flagship watch!

Bpie. 

I run with my pixel watch 2 and I can pause the runs just fine. Since the watch Strava app sucks, I just use the native Fitbit app for my activities, which is linked to my Strava. Haven't gone back to my Garmin watches since.

Yeah, I use my watch for kayaking and it's a pain to have sit around in gear scrolling through all the other sports to find it

Scroll down the list to find your activity is a pain. Being able to pin favourites to the top of the list would make using the wear app much more convenient.

Right now it's easier just to start the activity on my phone.

Yes please add this. Can't be very hard to implement.

This is really important. My old previous watch used to show real time pace in strava app. But the new one doesn't have this option.

it should be very usefull (on SMARTWATCH) to customize the list of sports to choose from, when we start a new activity. When I want to select a sport on my watch, I see a whole bunch of sports I don't practice... I would like to see only the ones I practice (3 or 4) and hide the others...thanks
