Strava is adding dog step counts and fitness rankings to its app

February 23, 2024

Strava has partnered with Fi, a smart dog collar maker that uses GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO simultaneously — similar to a Garmin watch — to track your dog’s accurate real-time location, broadcasting it via LTE-M cellular. The collar’s main purpose is to ensure you can find your dog at all times, but a secondary purpose is to track its daily step count during walks.

The Strava x Fi integration will let the smart collar automatically upload walk data to the app. As soon as you finish a Strava activity, Fi will also share your dog’s step account and append it to the same activity, including a leaderboard rank for how its step count compares to other dogs’ counts worldwide.
