Strava killed Relive’s API Access

They broke up and both sides blame the other.

2 sides of the story. Both sides pointing at the other side.

Relive Side


So, this sucks… Strava decided to no longer work with us and shut down our access to your activities. This means you can no longer create Relive videos based on your Strava activities.

We thought we had a thing. Until last week. After launching our first social features, we received a very unexpected message threatening to pull the plug. Given our long-term partnership, we immediately rolled back the changes like they requested.

We then tried to call, email, and talk this out with Strava. No response, except for new ultimatums and threats about our existing features they’ve applauded for years.

It’s sad to see them suddenly go and we’re bummed about this, just like you. We like Strava’s product and we’ve been working with them for more than 3 years.

Nothing has changed about how Relive uses and protects your data or how we use their API. We’re working to make sure you can keep your current and past activities on Relive. We believe this is your data and you should decide how it’s used. After all, it’s your legs doing all the work!

Can I still create those epic videos, you wonder? Hell yeah 🤘

  • If you use a Garmin, Suunto, or Polar device (or one of our other partners), just connect it to Relive and everything will work the same as before.
  • Record your activities directly with the Relive app.
  • Or import your activity files here.
