Popular running apps Strava and Runkeeper are now available for Android Wear 2.0 watches. You'll be able to use both apps untethered from your phone (as long as your watch has GPS) to record activities and view real-time stats on time, pace, distance, laps, split times and heart rate.

"This platform introduces many features that benefit Strava athletes, such as the option to record and upload activities independent of their phone."
