Now that it’s about a year since Strava moved many features that were formerly free into the paid version, is there any consensus if it’s worth the subscription price?
My own opinion is that there’s enough value in the access to the leaderboards alone to justify the (fairly low) price. I think they’re moving in the right direction with some other changes - eg reinstating the HR monitor connection through phone and the introduction of fitness, fatigue and freshness metrics - that I can see that there’s some development & it’s not just paying for something that used to be free. Personally I’m not a big fan of all the kudos etc as it’s just a waste of time in my opinion.
I do think that the overall value proposition is finely balanced though and any price increase might cause a reevaluation.
Interested to hear other’s opinions.
