Supported GPS Devices

posted this on February 2, 2012, 4:45 PM

Strava is compatible with several popular GPS devices and this list is growing all the time.


What does it mean to be compatible with Strava?

If your device can export or record your activities in GPX, TCX, or FIT format, and these files contain actual workout data, your device is compatible with Strava. 

Some devices have an easier process uploading to Strava than others. For example, some devices use an automatic upload flow from their software, some require a third party, and for some you must export the files manually and upload them to Strava. For more information on how these compatible devices upload to Strava, please see our Knowledge Base article on the topic.
