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!

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.

I love interval data ,

Should you buy? It depends ...

It is difficult to rate this app. I bought it due to the shameful lack of run apps that have a lap feature. In my excitement to purchase I neglected to see in the reviews - not in the description- that to use the Apple Watch you need to carry your phone. I bought the Apple Watch so I could run without a phone. So, if you are like me, this will be massively frustrating. (I’ve only used the app once because of this.)

Lots of cool screens - if you can read them. The one time I was able to use the app I found it difficult to read all but one of the screens while in motion. No doubt they are slick to look at when you are sitting on your couch. Good luck trying to see data at a glance.

This review does not cover any of the other notable features (e.g., plans) because I truly only wanted a GPS app with a lap feature I could use on my Apple Watch - again, without carrying my phone. I’ll keep looking for it.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for leaving your candid feedback about your needs. As you noted, we do not have a standalone watch app at this time, but it is something we are considering for a future update.
