Stopwatch may catch you out.
What’s this Stopwatch thing that has just turned up?!
I’ve been using Runkeeper for a number of years in the free mode. I used to use it to record my running times and distances, plus my times and distances when walking the dogs. I now mainly use it just for walking the dogs as I have invested in a TomTom watch for running (which isn’t great, but it fits on your wrist so you don’t have to carry your iPhone). Anyway, today I’m on holiday and didn’t have my TomTom watch so went for a run using Runkeeper on my iPhone. I changed the activity from walking to running and it pops up with a new “stopwatch activity”. I’ve never seen this before, but I think it looks correct because I wand to record my time and it could be that otherwise it would do that stupid “pause” thing when you are at traffic lights. Once I got back from my run it ask me to enter the distance I had run???! I think to myself “you’ve got the GPS, not me”. So, the stupid thing hasn’t recorded the distance. Rubbish!
Also, how do you turn the volume down before it blurts out “Activity Started” at full volume when you start?
Come on Runkeeper, get the basics right before doing all the bells and whistles – it used to be a pretty good app.
Was great, but can't trust it any more
I've had Runkeeper for some time now & considered it good enough to upgrade to Runkeeper Go... However, as others have also reported, it is completely unreliable with the Apple Watch now. I've lost many activities through it randomly pausing, crashing, restarting, etc. Too many to trust it now, so I've just reverted to Apple's own watch tracking. I hope an update will be out to fix this ASAP, otherwise the subscription is useless to me.
Was working again generally with another update, but then the latest update now makes the app crash whenever I try to go into my activities. Had to go on the website to delete a test activity.
**Thought things had improved with newer updates, but still has reliability issues & no flexibility when following a ‘plan’ to assign correct workouts to the specific plan days - it will randomly assign unrelated workouts, but won’t let you pick the correct one yourself!?**
Not great for Apple Watch
I’ve been using Runkeeper for 5 years. It’s a great fitness app, and has been used from small town walks to epic hill marathons.
The phone app is near perfect, maps and data clearly laid out, and the reports and records on the website are a great insight to your activities.
Where the app fails is Apple Watch. It’s a good app for Watch, however is missing a key feature for Series 3 and 4 - elevation tracking. I tracked an activity with my new Series 4 watch, and found that it hadn’t recorded any elevation data, despite the watch have a built in altimeter. Researching further, I found that this was the case - a Runkeeper blog post from September 2017 (Series 3 launch) confirmed that the Watch app did not feature this, but it was being looked in to. Now, a year later it is disappointing to see this feature hasn’t been implemented. Strava features this on their Watch app - Runkeeper, please build this functionality in to the Watch app.
My second request for the Watch app is for it to allow users to lock the display during a workout. Again, Strava has this built in.
Building these features in to the Watch app will mean Runkeeper stays as one of my most used apps, and make a great app even better.
