Editors' Notes

Track heart rate and distance on runs and workouts.

need iOS11 - beware


does not warn users that watch app will disappear if you update and stay on iOS10 and watchOS 3. Loads of issues with iOS11 there not updating until it is stable which means runtastic cannot be used with apple watch therefore moving to another app

update - watch app does not work with training plan, pointless!!! Developers why give all the options in the phone app and then release a useless watch app??!??!! why even make it standalone, there are better watch apps out there, e.g. strava, nike, runkeeper, endomomdo.

once my premium subscription is up I will not be renewing.

Update - glad to hear the connected app will be coming back, will wait and see if it is working as normal when released.

on another note, new update adds a bar at the bottom for menu, looks nice but have now removed the info when using plans. It use to show what intervals and live progress when doing a plan routine it is now missing since the menu change. Please bring this back

update : still no update for the connected apple watch app. It’s was meant to be put in december

Developer Response

We heard what you had to say and brought back the second screen option for Apple Watch by popular demand. You can now enable “Watch + Phone” mode to use all functions of the Runtastic mobile app together with your watch again. Try it out, and let us know what you think! Don’t worry, the standalone app is still an option for working out phone-free.

Valuable Addition


After being a user of micoach and Runkeeper with the latter being my preferred; I was somewhat reluctant to change my running app. However I decided to try out the Runtastic app and have to say it's the best change I have made and consider it a valuable addition to my running regime with features that are well developed and with an upgrade to Premium membership it provides additional support, and features important for any training activity.
