Unlike other tracking apps, Strava also tracks your pace throughout different segments of your run and allows you to compare your time to other runners/cyclists who have covered the same route. This aspect makes the app particularly suited to competitive runners who want to compare their performance against friends or other runners within their area. It’s also known for its popular segments feature, which shows how you stack up against other runners on the same route. Premium users also get access to Beacon, a safety option that allows three designated contacts to monitor your location while you’re out running.
