Saves from injuries
Post-marathon, my cadence dropped significantly when I returned to running. I couldn’t figure out why, especially since I am very mindful of my step turnover when I run. I could feel injuries coming in from overstriding. This app was like a breath of fresh air: using it helped me find my cadence again and it felt like coming home. Suddenly running was easy again because I found my stride. Will keep using this to improve my turnover rate. Easy and simple to use!! One suggestion: include an option to vibrate every other step. I don’t like to use this with ear buds because I don’t want beeping in my ears for hours, but it’s also hard to hear in my running belt when running along noisy roads! Would love a vibrate option so I can feel it when I can’t hear it.
So simple, so effective
A run coach recommended using a tempo app like this to help maintain pace consistency. After much online research I landed on this and didn't really use it til today, in 95 degree 90% humidity Houston TX where pace was a STRUGGLE. And what do you know. It worked. Kept me going and the real time feedback of my feet not being in time with the beat was so effective.
I love the simple interface, minimal options, though as I say this it might be nice to add an interval option for speed drills but even if they don't change anything, I'll still love it.
Good app, a couple things could make it great!
I love this app, it works really well coupled with MapMyFitness. A couple small tweaks would make it awesome.
#1 - Add a three beat option, low/low/high so that the strong beat would alternate left/right foot strikes and help people remain balanced. (As suggested in ChiRunning.)
#2 - Set up a couple preset buttons to quickly change pace. I do walk-run for distance events and would like to quickly be able to shift the pace.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
