We want to provide everyone with information to be able to reduce their exposure to air pollution. As we grow we want to build more tools for which we may charge a small fee

Understanding your data

What it means

Air Aware Labs is the first step to understand how air quality affects your health and performance. Knowing your exposure will help you access strategies to take preventative action. We give you the fundamental information about the air pollution around you for your activities. This draws on high resolution data sources that will vary geographically and over time, so please keep checking in.

Optimise your workout

We are building a suite of tools that will help you on this journey. Remember that reducing your exposure to air pollution by a even a small amount on a regular basis will pay dividends with your long-term health. And we hope your improved performance levels will keep you active and exercising even more!

PM2.5 (fine particulate matter)

PM2.5 is seen to pose the biggest risk to health. While there is no safe limit, the World Health Organisation recommends a daily limit of 15 micrograms per cubic metre. Exposure to PM2.5 can affect all our organs and increases the risk of heart disease, dementia, pregnancy complications and reproductive difficulties. Even short-term exposure can reduce athletic speed and performance.

NO2 (nitrogen dioxde)

NO2 inflames our airways and we want your airways to be working optimally! Again there is no safe limit, but the World Health Organisation recommends a daily limit of 25 micrograms per cubic metre. Long-term exposure can lead to lung diseases and any exposure can exacerbate conditions such as asthma.

FAQs

Where do I see the data?

Once you connect your Strava account to Air Aware Labs and complete your first activity, the data will appear in your feed automatically. It may take a few seconds to load but it will appear! Please message support@airawarelabs.com if you’re having any issues.

What is the cost?

We are committed to keeping a free version for users as we want everyone to be able to reduce their exposure to air pollution and improve their health. As we build up a wider suite of products, some will include a small fee for users.

How do I unsubscribe?

Go to the settings page in Strava and scroll down to Air Aware Labs, and click Revoke Access.

What other features are you planning?

We have some exciting features being prepared that enable people to delve deeper into the data, get more insights and receive recommendations. But the main thing is we want to hear from you about what features you’d like! Just drop us an email at hello@airawarelabs.com Please also sign up to our mailing list to receive updates on future product launches.

Is there a club?

Yes, please visit our Air Aware Labs club on Strava where we can compare activities and build our community. It’s open to join! You can also invite your friends from Strava to join.

How do I share this with friends?

Just send them the link https://airawarelabs.com/strava and ask them to sign up! And if they follow you on Strava and see the data on your feed, they can sign up directly.

What if I'm not a Strava user?

The CEO of Air Aware Labs was not a Strava user before this launch! When you click on ‘Connect to Strava’ it will offer the option of signing up for Strava so you can do both at once!

How do I provide feedback?

Please use our club to post ideas, send anything to us directly at hello@airawarelabs.com or use the Contact form. We love to hear from you!

Why don’t you use an AQI score?

Many air quality services use an overall score (known as an Air Quality Index) to give information about current air quality. This combines nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter, ozone and sometimes other pollutants into a single number. It can be hard to get an AQI that is meaningful globally and we want to be global! We are also aware of the different impacts on health from nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter and want to help users understand these better.
That said, if our presentation of the data isn’t working for you, please tell us!

What do the Strava permissions mean and what data do you access?

When you connect the Air Aware Labs app to Strava, we need to access certain fields to be able to work properly.

Permission
Purpose
Can I deselect it?
View data about your public profile
Required to connect Air Aware Labs to Strava
No - it's not possible to deselect this option
View data about your activities
Required to work out where and when the activity took place, to calculate air quality information
No - otherwise we can't calculate the correct air quality information
View data about your private activities
As above, but for private activities
Yes - you can deselect this option, but we can't calculate air quality information for private activities. Public activities will be processed
Upload your activities from Air Aware Labs to Strava
Required for us to update the description box with air quality information
No - we can't add in air quality information to your activity without this permission

My activities are private - can you still add air quality data?

Yes - as long as you tick "View data about your private activities" when you connect your account, we can add air quality data to your activity.

I only want you to access public activities - is this ok?

Yes - if you untick "View data about your private activities" when you connect your account, we only receive information about your public activities and will only annotate those ones - we can't view or access your private activities.

Do you play nicely with other apps like Bandók?

We do! We have tested it and there are no clashes between Bandók and Air Aware Labs.

What if I want to write something else in the description box?

That's fine! We take whatever is in the description box and append air quality data information when the activity is processed. You can add additional text to the description box for each activity, whether to include more context, specify conditions, or note particular observations.
