Ratings and Reviews
Poor service but good app for mobile devices
I have always loved the Nike app to track my runs. I recently got a new phone and tried to sync the app with my Apple Watch, previously done when I got my watch. However I was having problems with syncing the watch as my watch was displaying ‘set up Apple Watch from the Nike run app on you iPhone’ and when on the app all options in settings were ticked to sync with the watch and all applications made but the watch still read the same thing. I contacted support for the app which had no option for my issue and said for additional support I could call them. After 3 calls of ringing out I was finally spoken to by a lady that stated she did not know how to fix the issue as she only felt with the app on a mobile device. I then tried to arrange an option of ‘have Nike call you’ to which the link was not working - tried twice after reloading. I was very unimpressed with the service I received and the lack of help trying to fix it.
When using the app on the phone I love it, it tracks runs very well giving splits per mile - hence why I prefer using it to the standard run track on the watch. There are lots of guided workouts which are great for beginners of if you need some motivation on a down day or to get started.
Great app! (but some minor improvements would be great)
App is really nice that you could plan your runs according to how far or how long you want to go, or spontaneously start and it would automatically calculate everything for you. I’ve been using it to have a (free!) customized training scheme for a 10k race I will be running. HOWEVER, there are a few suggestions or changes I would like:
**1. In a training plan when running sprint intervals, it would be so much better (!) if the voiceover would tell you when you reach the distance of each interval e.g.- 200m. So when you’re sprinting madly, you don’t have to constantly keep checking your phone to see if you’ve reached 200m to stop the stopwatch.**
2. When adding additional personal runs to your training plan days, they aren’t displayed in your overall training schedule and total distance etc., so a little hard to keep in track of overall progress.
3. Would be good if you could link the Nike Training Club app to this one, so you could record what workouts you do during eg a race training plan.
Update has ruined everything
Having recently updated my iPhone, Apple Watch and the Nike app (Jan 2018) I’ve found that nothing works. More than 60% of my runs are not tracked on a map with GPS, instead just giving me an irritating circle, calories are all over the place and it never tracks elevation. Before this update I stepped out the house and tapped the Nike+ symbol on my watch and pressed start, immediately it started and tracked everything well. Now I tap on the symbol, it thinks, thinks some more and then eventually I can click start, but then it apparently doesn’t know where I am yet manages to track miles!! Checking my phone before I start all map apps, the Nike+ app and even flight tracker know exactly where I am seconds after stepping out my house, yet the watch doesn’t and even tho it starts it doesn’t track the route of my run! Also, why do I have to uncheck autopause for every single run? I hate autopause and you’d think I could just switch it off and be done with it as on the phone but no, it resets after every single run! Unbelievably poor and annoying they can’t get all these issues sorted and back to the way they were before the update. I’ve been using Nike+ for years and don’t want to change but I may look into it now.
