The techy runner ,

Replaced my beloved Garmin!

I have been using a Garmin 910XT for years and love it. However, the lack of LTE capabilities meant that I had to either carry a phone while running, or be unable to communicate during long runs.

The stock fitness App on the Apple watch was insufficient for me, but this ismoothrun app on the Apple watch has the features that I need for marathon training and racing.

1) Start / pause (or lap) by pressing the crown and button on the Apple watch. (Garmin has more hardware buttons, but one hardware button feature is enough for me.)

2) Download complex interval workouts to the watch (even easier than Garmin Connect workouts)

3) Accurate GPS (as good or better than Garmin during my tests)

4) Easy export to Garmin Connect

5) Good enough battery life, more than 50% battery remaining after a 3 hour workout.

I was ok with the Garmin interval beeps and vibrations, but I do prefer the voice commands from ismoothrun.

If not for this ismoothrun app, I would have bought the new Garmin LTE watch. But with ismoothrun, the Apple watch becomes about as good as a Garmin for a marathoner, and a much more capable device overall.

The only reason I would use a Garmin now would be for ultra running training or races that require more than 5 hours of battery life. For everything else, I am using the Apple watch and that's
because ismoothrun is so good.

I rarely write reviews, but this app is so useful for me that I wanted to share my positive feedback.

Not Flawless, But Still the Greatest

Lost ability to upload to Nike+, but it seems to be because Nike wants to be exclusive, in the bad way.

I love that I can leave my phone at home and just use my watch, that I can integrate a Wahoo Tickr Run with the iSmoothRun app on my watch, and that I can use my Bluetooth headphones all at the same time. I also love that I can create custom workouts to follow as I go.

It may be my misuse, but sometimes the Tickr Run syncing to the watch makes the iSmoothRun app not show distance, which makes it basically useless until I sync with my phone again to see how far I ran. Sometimes it seems to work and sometimes it doesn’t. I’m still troubleshooting.

I WANT to love this app!

But right now it’s just barely cutting it. The watch + iPhone setting just does NOT work. The watch app in watch only mode works as expected. Any time I try to start the watch + iPhone (from the watch) it just displays no info on the watch and the iPhone app sits at the start run screen. Don’t cut and paste your standard check your settings faq either. I’ve checked them all. Smashrun... I love your website but you might want to consider a “ymmv” statement when recommending this app right now.

Update: I got the watch and iPhone app working together by starting the outside runs from the phone NOT the watch as shown in the faq. However, treadmill plus this app = fail. It constantly repeats stats, goes to auto pause when auto pause is disabled and doesn’t record the pace or distance correctly on a treadmill. The watch is recording the correct info and can be seen in the watch records. It’s the app.. right now it’s working ok for outside runs and that’s it. I’ll still use it over Nike’s nightmare though. It sad that the Apple Watch is such a running tool failure.
