What’s New

Version 12.0.3

Now Runmeter can record workouts on your Apple Watch!

Two modes are supported, which are available in the settings of our Apple Watch app:

• Record on Apple Watch - your workouts are recorded on Apple Watch, and automatically transfered to your workout history when you open our iOS app. You do not need to take your iPhone with you. If your Apple Watch has cell access or your iPhone is nearby, you can live track using Friends, send Email Updates, use Siri to control workouts, and much more.

• Record on iPhone - same as before, you can use your Apple Watch to control recording on your iPhone. You need to take your iPhone with you on your workouts in this mode.

Our Apple Watch app is built using the same code that records workouts on iPhone, so it supports everything our iPhone app does, including announcements, target alerts, splits, intervals, laps, stop detection, and more. It does not yet support speed sensors, cadence sensors, power meters, or external heart rate monitors, but will in a future update.

Best I’ve used

I live in an area of limited cell service. Literally none in my driveway. Unlike others this running app does not require me to have cell signal to at least start and finish my run. Yes I do pay the optional small annual subscription $9.99 currently so I don’t have to wait for it to load advertisements, which it can’t do without a signal. The subscription also provides extra features such as automatically detecting a pause when I am waiting to cross a busy street or such. Unfortunately the indoor step detection is never even reasonably accurate despite advice on how to make it more so. But I only run indoors in a blizzard or squall so not that big of a deal.

Developer Response ,

We appreciate your feedback and glad the app is working well for you without a cell signal. Just so you know, the step counting detection is actually coming directly from your phone. It provides your step count to the app. You might want to make sure that your step length measure is accurate for best results.

Lots of potential

First, they get 5 stars for support. I couldn’t get my Polar heart rate strap to work and I emailed them. Got a reply in less than 30 minutes, on a weekend, with a fix that worked. Pair it to the phone, not the watch.

Unfortunately the heart rate does not update very often on the watch app. It seems to only work when the phone is unlocked. Beyond that, the app has tons of potential. Great stats for running and walking. However, the interface really needs some help. All the right info is there, but it’s not pleasant to look at or use. On the watch screens you have to scroll to see all the info. I also enjoyed the running plans, the interval training features, and the emailing of runs to let others know where I am.

If the heart rate screen worked better on the watch I maybe would have paid the yearly fee. If it had that plus a better interface, it would be easy to pay for it. I’ll check back later to see how it develops.

Developer Response ,

Glad to hear that our support team was able to help you to get your Polar HRM working with the app. Not sure what problem you encountered, but displaying heart rate will be constantly updated on your watch even when your iPhone is locked. We do appreciate your feedback on the app design. And just FYI, you can customize all of the watch screens in the app to display your own choices for statistics and pages.

Terrific App

I’m getting back into running after many years off. I’ve tried all of the current crop of apps. Nothing is as flexible and configurable as this. Although the Apple Watch app is not “stand-alone” (bummer since I have an Apple Watch 3), the screens are beautiful and customizable. Audio cues are customizable.

In addition, the training plan is infinitely customizable. To be fair, it’s generic for say a 5k/10k and doesn’t have a “dynamic” component (where it’s modified every week) With others (mapmyrun, Runkeeper,) it’s surprisingly difficult to modify plans, switch a run from one day to another, etc....

I don’t know why this app isn’t more popular. As someone who has spent a bunch of time comparing the options ( including the premium versions) this was the best fit for me. Please pay the modest fee for the Elite version and continue to support it!
