Now we can use Runkeeper but your iPhone interjection to Apple Watch Series 2 upgrade

December 5, 2016 - running watch

The best reason to buy an Apple Watch Series 2 is so we can lane workouts though carrying on iPhone. The watch’s local Workout app logs runs, swims, and bike rides with assistance from built-in GPS, though if you’ve been tracking practice with a third-party app for years, switching is a pain. Runkeeper only updated a watch app with support for a Series 2 so we can record your runs, no iPhone required.

Runkeeper’s Apple Watch app was already one of our favorite aptness apps. I’ve been regulating a beta chronicle of Runkeeper’s Series 2 app for a past few days, and it’s improved than ever. The app lets we select to use it though a phone (in that box it taps into a watch’s GPS) or with in a settings. If you’re using sans iPhone, a app shows we how clever a GPS vigilance is so you’ll know how accurate a track calculation will be. we run outward on Brooklyn sidewalks and by Brooklyn parks and found Runkeeper’s information to be spot-on. If we go for a run though your phone, a app syncs a track to a iOS app after you’re done.

The upgraded app also displays your information in a new way, with a heart rate graph plotting your beat over a 5-minute camber to uncover we how heated your examination is. There’s also a aim gait graph so we can see your tangible gait plotted opposite where your gait should be. The watch app vibrates with haptic feedback when we strike any mile.

Runkeeper’s app is HealthKit-compatible, and workouts finished with a watch app count toward your activity goals. If you’re already a Runkeeper user, upgrading is a no-brainer. If you’ve never used Runkeeper before, this chronicle could convince we to desert a watch’s local Workout app.
