If you’re a runner or a cyclist, you’re probably familiar with Strava, as it lets you track your workouts with ease. Some of the best features are behind a subscription, but the company has just announced that its Beacon live location tracking feature is available completely free.
A subscription to Strava goes for $59.99 annually or $7.99 per month, and it comes with all sorts of features that are worthwhile for people who enjoy getting out there in the world and exercising. Now, Strava has decided to make its Beacon live location tracking feature available to all users, whether they pay for the service or not.
Basically, you can enable the feature for safety purposes or just as a fun motivator to keep you moving. You can use Beacon to share your live location with up to three people who can track you as you move throughout the world. The people you’re sharing with will get a unique URL that lets them see your location updated every 15 seconds.
