Most runners train at the wrong intensity.
It's a simple mistake that silently hinders runners at all levels. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Learn more about the science of Stryd below.
Stryd guides you to run at your optimal intensity.
Stryd accounts for hills, wind, form and fatigue so you can train at precisely the right effort on runs of any distance on any terrain. Plus, because Stryd doesn’t rely on GPS, it works the same on a treadmill, indoors, or outside.
Execute your workouts perfectly and perform at your best on race day. Run by power.
Better training starts with precision technology.
Stryd uses motion-capture sensors and wind capturing tech to understand just how hard you are running. When you run with better precision, you improve faster.

Getting Started with Power is Easy.
We help you get started with a guided two week ‘Introduction to Power’ plan that teaches you about running with power. You'll find it easier to pace with every run.
How is running with Stryd different?
Power is your go-to guide during any moment of your run. Look at your watch (or phone) and get immediate guidance at the right intensity you should be running at.
Running uphill takes more effort. As you run uphill, your power number increases indicating you should slow down.
As you start going downhill, your effort decreases and you can speed up to maintain the same, constant power output.
And as things flatten out you can speed up, but you will still aim to maintain the same power. In the end you’ve been able to maintain your energy expenditure, never hitting the wall and perfectly pacing your run.
What does your first run with Stryd look like?
Running with power may be a new training tool but we have made it exceptionally easy to experience the full benefits with the help of your watch and smartphone.

Setting Personal Records Again
Without being able to keep an eye on my average pace and by relying solely on my goal power zone, I did:
- a personal record on my half marathon by nearly a minute; my old PR was 4 years ago.
- 26'54" Parkrun: my second fastest to date and third fastest 5k overall. Again, my previous fastest times were 4-5 years ago.
All my best times had been achieved immediately before I got pregnant. After that I had to quit running due to physical reasons and I didn't resume running seriously until this past spring.
Confidence to Trust in Myself
I’d like to share my success story. After 12 weeks of a high-volume HM training plan, I tried the PowerRace app today and ran the half marathon. I couldn’t be happier. Stryd predicted I would finish in 1:29:40, which I thought was too ambitious. I managed to finish it in 1:29:55. I improved my PR by 8 minutes! 14K into the race, I thought that I would not be able to hold the pace. But I did — and I literally finished the run on the last bit of energy I had left. This really gave me the confidence to trust in myself and trust my Stryd. And, I might add, during the power-based training plan, I had a higher weekly volume than ever before, but I never felt overtrained or something. Really spot on. Kudos to this product.
Knowing how hard to push
There are so many variables in trail ultramarathons. Knowing where I’m at & exactly how hard I can push, removes a big chunk of the guesswork & stress. Power helps me pace & train like no other metric can & my running continues to improve because of it.
Back to back PRs
I am 4 for 4! 4 racing distance PRs using Stryd (5K, 10K, 13.1 and 26.2) in the last 2 months. BQed today and PRed by 10mins in my marathon. Followed my race watts consistently and had strong legs throughout. So happy I bought STRYD!!!!
41 minute PR
I just completed the 88km Comrades Ultra using Stryd. Stryd was absolutely critical to holding back in the first half of the race so I could conserve energy for the second half.
The result? 41 minutes faster than 2017. I set PRs on all the segments in the second half. Thanks, Stryd.
4 weeks of training, really impressed
Result of a 4-week Stryd HM training plan. Really impressed, especially as I was quite dubious at all the easy running.
Faster with more energy
To my utter surprise, I did not only finish the 18K with tons of energy left (well...a good amount of energy), but I found out that my pace was more than 10s per km faster than I had achieved on the same route in the past. I honestly could not believe this! Not only was the route trickier than I usually would have chosen for an 18K run, but it turned out that I was much faster than usual yet I had more energy left! Running with power took all the mental effort out of my training as I did not have to gauge how fast to go uphill. I just ran, enjoyed the environment, stopped thinking, and I was faster. I am really liking this!
Sometimes I can’t believe how accurate Stryd can be. I went out today with the intention of a 10 mile moderate run by feel—not really paying attention to metrics, but was feeling strong early on and the weather was nice, so I pivoted to see if I could beat my half marathon PR since I’ve been training. Still continued to run mostly by feel until the last 2-3 miles or so where it was pretty much all out to maintain pace/output.. so overall a solid trial effort. Knocked 5 mins off my Half time. Now here’s the most interesting part.. avg’d 270W for a finish time of 1:39:11. Out of curiosity, I pulled up race calc in Stryd... suggested 269W with a finish time of 1:39:24. 13 seconds variance! It’s amazing how accurate Stryd is I absolutely love it.
Ready in Seconds
I’ve been doing the workouts on my Apple Watch and I love how easy it is to just open my Stryd app, sync my workout, and go!
