Check how you're performing on your favorite segments from your GPS device or smartphone.
How often do you finish a tough climb or lung-bursting effort only to find out you missed your PR by less than a second? Or could have moved up one more spot on the leaderboard but didn't realize the finish line was a just a tiny bit farther? Live Segments gives you real-time feedback so you can see exactly how you're stacking up while you’re running or riding – no more nasty surprises!
Live Segments work on a wide range of devices (check compatibility here), and Strava athletes can access it with a subscription. Your starred segments are synced automatically to your device, and then you'll be notified when you approach one of them during an activity. Once you reach the start, it's game on with a motivating visualization as you ride or run.
You'll get instantaneous data – not just of your time in the moment, but also how it compares to your PR, nearest Strava friend or the current KOM, QOM or CR. Results are calculated and displayed instantly when the segment ends.
For Garmin Edge 1030 users, Live Segments will also show how you’re stacking up in the moment against your last effort, the best time from your previous five attempts, and the friend that sits just behind you in the leaderboard – so whether your PR days are long behind you or you want to keep moving up the leaderboard, Live Segments gives you that extra bit of motivation. In addition, the segment-explore feature includes on-device navigation as well as showing top segments nearby, so no matter where you are, you can find the best places to ride.
When you leave your device at home, athletes recording with a smartphone can still take advantage of Live Segments and see both starred and popular segments during an activity.
