Strava has announced that the live segment feature it first rolled out for Garmin computer users will now be available on Android and iOS smartphones. Live segments offer real-time audio cues and visuals of an athlete’s current effort on a segment, along with their personal record, and proximity to the person at the top of the leaderboard.

Strava live segments provides a variety of visual components, allowing riders to view their second-by-second performance during starred segments and popular local segments. Audio cues enable athletes to hear their progress on a segment.

To use Strava live segments, athletes simply begin by recording a ride or run. As athletes approach a starred segment or a popular segment, the screen automatically changes to live segments mode. Athletes will see a map of the upcoming segment including a notification bar with segment name and start location. As they get closer to the start of the segment, the notification bar turns from black to orange.

Once the segment starts, premium Strava subscribers will see their current effort in the center of the screen, their personal record on the left, and the KOM or QOM on the right. Color coding makes it easy to view progress and effort during a segment. Upon completing, the screen summarizes results and then returns to live stats mode.
