The STRYD CIQ app on the Garmin site is now up to 11,200 downloads. Maybe not all of those people have bought STRYD but there are certainly other STRYD users who partner it with the Apple Watch, Polar and Suunto devices. So let’s say they are up to 11,000 customers!! Cool. Sounds good.
NB: I’ve no idea what the actual number of customers are.
STRYD seem to have finalised their distribution and pricing models. Whilst STRYD do seem to sell globally from stryd.com in some GEOs they also fulfill locally and so help non-US customers with unwanted import duties.
In the EU STRYD’s main distributor is New Running Gear, although some STRYD units do occasionally seem to find their way onto Amazon from other sources.
Discounts have now stopped. So, unfortunately for you, it should be hard to find discounted STRYD or STRYD Live models anywhere, perhaps they may be reinstigated in 2019 if there is an upated model in the offing??
I found this recently. Version 3 of the STRYD manual. It’s not super-big and has embedded links to interesting sources of further info: stryd-power-manual-v3
Talking with STRYD (I don’t get any confidential insights per se) they have been building up the supporting infrastructure around the products this year (post STRYD-Live) so I’d imagine that would continue. But I don’t particularly have a steer as to whether or not they will be expanding the product offering with new hardware or new platforms like WearOS (remember MilestonePOD worked on a WearOS app although their product targets different segments of runner types in general)
Availability & Potential Seasonal Discounts
I partner directly with STRYD in the USA and their distributor New Running Gear in the EU. Clicking on the images below takes you through to whatever current deal on STRYD there is at any given time in the USA/Canada. Thank you! Sometimes STRYD is sold on Amazon.
