Strava Premium - yay or nay

20 Dec 2016 21:47

Whats the biggest benefits? I kinda wanna support Strava, but the price is rather spicy. I don't have a power meter, but I have a HRM and I very much like the idea behind having that data on Strava, the different zones, suffer score etc.

Who are you are using it and who are thinking about signing up for the coming season?

I'm a premium Strava user Like Strava a lot, like to donate some money for al their work, and I'm happy with the extra features for premium users. And I do (not yet) have a powermeter.

I use premium. It's the only software/hardware I use. It has the heart rate and Power data features. It also has a speedometer. The free version shows your average speed but not your current speed. I like that since I don't have any other bike computer. It's only something like $60 for the year. Don't do month to month.

Did you sign up? I've had a premium account for a couple of years and do like the extra features but like others have said I don't mind donating a little extra for what is a fun little app, I've made some good cycling/real world buddies thanks to Strava being around

Curious if you signed up. I believe they have a 30 day free demo, no?

I don't have a power meter either, but am on Premium. I'm mostly on it as a "donation" to Strava for putting out such a good, useful app.

I've been using Premium a couple of years.Happy enough and it's only £40pa which works out at £3.33 a month.I also use Veloviwer(£10pa) which links to Strava and gives even more detailed stats.It's not a lot of money for both really :cool:

I'm on my 2nd year of premium and think the extra info is worth it. I went premium when I put a Garmin Edge 520 on. You get live Strava segments on climbs as well. Considering the costs of cycling it's not a big investment.

I probably will when I start going for serious rides outside which means the opening week in Belgium. What a good day Saturday will be.

I just have one question: Can I connect my heartrate monitor? Its Sigma, don't know exactly what model.

I don't know that heart rate monitor brand, but it should. I have a wahoo heart rate monitor that hooks up perfectly with Strava. It uses bluetooth. Strava should also sync up with most power meters.
