5.0.0 Release Notes:
Introducing Tempo 5, with Custom Workouts & Training Planner!
This is a significant update with a bunch of under-the-hood changes to support iOS 17 & watchOS 10. While a lot more is in the works and will happen incrementally, I wanted to get this huge feature launched for the fall racing season. :)

Here's a quick summary of the feature,
• Create and manage custom workouts from simple time, distance, or pace-based goals to complex multi-block intervals.
• Upload your custom workouts to the Workout app on your Apple Watch and use them just like the standard pre-installed workouts.

• View your entire schedule of past and upcoming workouts in Tempo.
• Send your friends a copy of your favorite workout routine for them to try it on their Apple Watch.

Ratings and Reviews
One of the best apps I’ve ever used
As someone who is getting back into running (trained for a half marathon and over 300 miles logged in the past year), this app is MADE for runners. You are able to get so many helpful insights and stats from an individual run. And even when you want to look at cumulative stats for a given week or month, the cumulative graph and intensity calendar are awesome. You aren’t gonna find these stats in any other app, and that includes Apple’s fitness app. I also LOVE the share feature. Apple’s fitness app lets you share a completed workout, but it presents pretty barebone stats that are non customizable. Tempo lets you share your stats in the form of a customizable image (you decide what stats to show). This feature alone for me is worth it, cause it makes it so easy to share with my friends my runs without having to take a screenshot and manually crop or create something on my own. The yearly subscription is less than the cost of running socks, so if you even consider yourself a casual runner who just wants more insight GET THIS APP. Seriously you won’t regret it. As an iOS developer myself, I just wanna say kudos to the app developer. Such an unbelievably useful and well crafted app that many others could learn from. Hoping in the future that maybe we could see an iPad version but otherwise absolutely stellar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Well worth the subscription cost! I'm impressed 🤓
First, I will mention the subscription part because it seems like that is where a lot of people are leaving negative reviews. Yes, you do need to pay the subscription fee to see all of the functions, charts, goalsetting, widgets, etc. within the app but the creator gives you a seven day trial to see what it has before you have to pay for it. I’d also like to mention the fact that I tried to download a lot of Apple health data to generate a spreadsheet to analyze my runs and suffice to say I spent 2+ days trying to get a handle on all of the data, and in the end excel was not really able to process several gigabytes of data. This app connects directly to Apple health and gives you all of the run data and statistics that you could possibly imagine so fantastic work on the creators part. Thank you for making a wonderful app.
Splits are broken, devs unresponsive
I like the idea of this app. I was really enjoying using it for a while until my new entries suddenly had broken splits. There would only be 2 splits for a run. The 1st mile and then the rest of the run would be lumped together as one big split. Completely useless data at that point. The splits are correct in the data source and correct in Apple Fitness, only in Tempo are they broken. I reached out to the devs at their published support email and got no response. I had paid for a year of premium but I cancelled after realizing the data is suspect and the devs won't troubleshoot issues. I would look very carefully before spending any money and ensure that the data is correct for your workouts.
update: after tweeting at the developer I did receive a response. The developer tried hard to solve the problem but unfortunately a solution was never found. I really wish I could use this app as I quite like it, but I just can't get around this issue.
Developer Response ,
Hi, apologies for not responding to your email. This issue can happen when you record your workouts with an app other than the Workout app on your Apple Watch. Tempo reads the data from the Health app, but third-party apps' data could be in a non-standard format, sparse, or completely missing. The recent update (Tempo 3.9.0) made a few changes to support one of such third-party app's data (slightly) better. If you are still up for it, please give it a try. You can reach me directly on email@example.com. Thank you.
