Tempo is self-funded and maintained by a solo developer. Hi, that's me! I love running as much as building quality software. With no outside funding, no ads, no grow at any cost by selling your data, Tempo's only source of revenue is when you subscribe to premium features. Please check it out. Runners find these features truly effective in training well.


Built for runners, by a runner, Tempo started as a simple, 1-screen, side-project and has evolved into a powerful app to become a favorite of many runners.


I can't emphasize this enough: Tempo is built with privacy first as a core principle. Your data is yours. I do not have or want access to it. I will never sell it or share it with anyone. No ads, no creepy tracking.


Tempo's pro features are only available with Tempo Premium subscription. If you purchase Tempo Premium, a subscription payment will be charged to your App Store account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the App Store after purchase. Any unused portion of the free trial period will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription. Subscription prices may vary from country to country.


Tempo primarily works with the Health data stored by the Workout app from Apple Watch. While it may be able to process workouts stored in the Health app by other 3rd-party apps, depending on how those apps store the data, some details may vary.

What’s New

Version 4.2.1

Hello. This build has a few minor bug fixes that have been around but limited to very few folks and hence were not easily discoverable and fixable. You will notice the following improvements if you are one of those folks,

• Latest workout widget will work correctly now instead of showing a very old workout.
• Watch app should show the correct latest workout.
• Workouts imported into the Health app might show better splits info when available.

My thanks to the runners who helped troubleshoot these seemingly random and not very straightforward bugs.

In addition, there is more UI polish, new motivational quotes, and some work for yet-to-be-released features.

Enjoy & Stay Active!


Tempo 4.2.0 brought updated Annual Highlights with more fun stats and visualizations to celebrate 2022 and get inspired for 2023. Here's a summary of it,

• Cumulative Heart Rate Zones:
Tempo aggregates heart rate zones from every workout during the year for a single year-long heart rate zones pie chart.

• Calendar of Active Days:
A simple and unified calendar highlighting every active day. Makes a fun and unique visual of training history.

• Averages:
We already had totals for key stats, and now we also have totals averaged per workout for the year.

All of the above also works for the past years. So while you can check your year-in-review for 2022, you can also relive the past training years.

Great Reporting for the Privacy Focused

Last year I started using Strava to track all my runs. I enjoyed the system but ultimately ended up disliking it for similar reasons I dislike most social networks (run-envy, anyone?).
I found Tempo to be a good solution for this as it has no social aspects but does a lot of the reporting Strava does.
The subscription fee for this is nominal and unlocks a lot of the features I need so I gladly pay for this. It’s reliance on Apple Health means all my data has been pulled in with no effort from me.

A fantastic app with one annoyance

First off, this app is just what I have been looking for. It shows all the data I need in a really clean and user friendly way. The only issue I have is around personal best times. All my imported data would have PBs that ignore the paused time when I am waiting at traffic lights etc but the app includes these in which makes it really difficult to ever measure my times like for like. It would be really good to have a button in settings to allow you to remove pauses if you wish (unless I am missing something). Other than that a fantastic app that I would recommend for all runners.

Awesome stats app

I started running this year for the first time, and after a few months I wanted to see what I’d managed to accomplish. I was pretty bemused and disheartened by the absence of useful analytics in the Health and Fitness apps, so went searching for something to scratch my stats itch.

Someone mentioned Tempo on a forum, and I gave it a quick test - and was very pleased to see that it covered everything I wanted, and even included a goal tracker! Lovely. I am now a happy Premium user.
