Become a better runner.

Helium is a smart workout assistant designed to help you get the most out of your runs.

Whether you're starting a Couch-to-5K program as a beginner, or trying to improve your 10K, half-marathon or marathon times, Helium can help you ensure you're running at the correct intensity and seeing real progress in your workouts.

Effective workouts target your ideal heartrate zone. Run too hard or too easy and your fitness won’t improve.

Using your Apple Watch or Bluetooth chest strap + iPhone, Helium can help you stay in the correct zone with audio and haptic feedback during your run.

A quick tap on your wrist or tone in your ear will let you know if you're going too fast or too slow.

Comparing your runs can be tricky. Helium does the heavy lifting and intelligently groups your outdoor runs by route.

Now you can instantly see when and where you're making progress. Compare several days of runs for the same route on a single screen.

Step counts are so 2016. Get a better picture of your real fitness progress with Helium's cardio analytics.

We'll continually analyze all of your runs in the past year to give you a true picture of how your cardio performance is changing.

Leave the armband at home. Helium is the perfect companion for your Apple Watch + Airpods.

All of Helium's workout tracking and zone feedback functionality is available directly on Apple Watch.

Workouts performed with Helium Run are saved to the Apple Health app, which count towards filling your activity rings. Helium also integrates with the Health app to read your workout data and show you how your fitness is improving over time.

Master of appies ,


I looked all over the App Store to find an app that will tap/audio alert you when your heart rate goes too high. This app one ups that and does distinct tones and taps for too high and too low keeping you in your proper zone for aerobic training. It doesn’t stop there it maps out the course you run and automatically imputes your workout to complete your Apple Watch rings. Great running app!

Running further than ever

I didn't realize I was running way too fast until I started using this app. It has helped me keep my heart rate down and now I'm running further than ever. Great app. Thanks.


Data loss

Stops tracking before you can even save the data. More than angry to work hard and find it’s gone with the whim.
