Awesome and getting even better!

Disney Runner

Edit: I've now used this app for at least 6 years. It is my go-to app for events and love the Apple Watch integration. One key trick (for me) is to start and stop the event on the watch (for a long time I tried to start on the phone and ended up having two events go off when I switched to the watch). I happily recommend iSmoothRun to all my friends.

I just finished the Hershey Half Marathon with iSmoothRun, and it was wonderful! For a little background, I have run halves and fills for 4 years, and have tried RunMeter (a nice second place to iSmoothRun), RunTracker, Kinetic, and MapMyRun+. iSmoothRun is clearly developed by runners who saw what was missing, added those features, and topped it off with some nice polish.

For events in cities, sky scrapers totally mess up the GPS, so the combination of GPS with accelerometer is brilliant (the accelerometer kicks in when GPS is lost). Counting step rate allowed me to keep my rate much more consistent at mile 11-13. Auto-pause after 10 seconds works very well (I am very slow pressing stop on my arm after a half).

I hope this app takes off for a very selfish reason: I can't wait to see what other features they pack into this thing. Right now, you need to turn on the metronome after you start the run, which is my only complaint. And yes, I have absolutely no affiliation with them (I do computer development for a small DC firm).

Still not iWatch user Friendly 🙁

Read some reviews and ended up buying this app to enable recording HR from my iWatch. Spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out the settings, but still to no avail. Finally reached out to their support - I believe, the session should be started from the iWatch and not from iPhone in order to record HR. The app doesn’t not have any start /stop /resume/end screen - it is supposed to come up by force. After multiple times got it start a session but was not able to end the session, had to turn off the iWatch in order to end the session.
Reached out to the App support with making the app more easy to use.

I was assured that they are working on those enhancements and will be included in their next update. I hope they release the update soon, until then my two star stands.

A Great App, Can Use  Watch 3 Alone Without iPhone


I recently started using iSmoothRun after many years using another app. My reason for switching to iSmoothRun was for the great Apple Watch only tracking of runs with my  Watch 3 with LTE.

It’s great to leave my iPhone at home and use all the robust features of the app on the Apple Watch 3. The developer is devoted to updating the app and is testing and adding a number of features for the Apple Watch only usage such as Run/Walk intervals among other features.

This is a great app with robust features and customization! A must use app for runners using the iPhone and those looking to use only the Apple Watch too.
