Open NRC on iPhoneX, Apple Watch, start run on phone!
On Oct 31, I ran 8.1 miles to reach the 100 km goal for the month. As usual, I started the run on my Apple watch 3, so I could monitor heart rate and pace. I wear my iPhone X in a Nike armband for GPS. At the end of the run, it never synced back to my phone: usually just a few minutes after I finish a run on my watch with my iPhone with me, the run will show up in the NRC app on my phone so I can apply it to my running plan, and enter my effort, where, and notes. It never showed up in my iPhone NRC app, so it looks like I did not complete the October 100km challenge. I called them about it, and they said it was a known bug, they were working on it, and would be in touch with me in a few days. Today, I held the phone in a hand strap case so I could use the phone screen easily. I did a QuickStart Run (warmup), then a Speed Run (6x400m), and then ran home with another QuickStart run. For all 3, I had NRC open on my watch and phone, but _started_ the run on my phone, which in turn started the run on my watch! This way, I could see ongoing heart rate on both devices, and could push the Lap button on my phone at the end of the 400m reps. I do prefer being able to simply Start a run from my watch and Apply it to the Plan later on my phone, but for now, this is a work-around.
Long Distance Runners Beware: Watch App On S2 Is Useless
I suppose if you’re a casual runner of shorter distances this app is serviceable. If you’re even slightly more serious, read on.
I have an Apple Watch Nike+ S2 and the Watch app is absolutely horrible. Laggy all around. Every swipe takes a second to register, every tap happens a second later. Tapping to start a run takes seconds to actually begin. If you have a run countdown and the countdown does not complete before you drop your wrist the workout will not actually begin. Double tapping the screen during a run is supposed to pause your workout but you have to raise your wrist to wake the screen and then give it a few seconds to update the display before you can do so. Even then it can take a couple of attempts. And last but certainly not least if you finish a long workout (double digit miles) and attempt to save the workout the app crashes. If you restart the app it resumes the workout forcing you to pause the workout (adding time to your workout in the process) and try again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it terminates and saves nothing. Yesterday I lost a 19 mile run. Gone. It’s far from the first time and I’m not going to go through it anymore.
I have given this app too many chances over years of it getting worse. I’m embarrassed to have pre-ordered the Apple Watch Nike+ S3. Even when it comes I will absolutely not be giving this app another chance. If you’ve read this far, consider yourself warned.
