Great for what I need
I've only been using this app for a couple of weeks, but it has been working wonders for me. I am not a vivid runner by any means. I started using this app to track my progress in my weight loss journey. My runs are only a mile and a half each day, for the time being, so I haven't experienced any issues that the other reviews have pointed out concerning crashes. I love the achievement section and how you are able to log miles on the sneakers you are running in. There are only two things that keep me from giving this a 5 star rating. First has to do with the music. I have plenty of music on my iTunes, but I prefer to listen to Pandora. Maybe I haven't fidgeted with the app enough, but I haven't found any way to set Pandora as my music preference. It would be nice to be able to do that. Secondly, I use the timer on my phone to track my time because I time myself running run way. Once that time is up, I turn around and run back. The problem is when my timer goes off, my workout pauses. Again, I haven't fidgeted with the app too much, so I don't know if a workout like that is available. I just don't like that my workout pauses just because my timer that isn't even part of the app goes off. Both of those are small issues that I have adjusted to, but the app would have five stars from me if those issues were not there.
Long Distance Runners Beware: Watch App On S2 Is Useless
I suppose if you’re a casual runner of shorter distances this app is serviceable. If you’re even slightly more serious, read on.
I have an Apple Watch Nike+ S2 and the Watch app is absolutely horrible. Laggy all around. Every swipe takes a second to register, every tap happens a second later. Tapping to start a run takes seconds to actually begin. If you have a run countdown and the countdown does not complete before you drop your wrist the workout will not actually begin. Double tapping the screen during a run is supposed to pause your workout but you have to raise your wrist to wake the screen and then give it a few seconds to update the display before you can do so. Even then it can take a couple of attempts. And last but certainly not least if you finish a long workout (double digit miles) and attempt to save the workout the app crashes. If you restart the app it resumes the workout forcing you to pause the workout (adding time to your workout in the process) and try again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it terminates and saves nothing. Yesterday I lost a 19 mile run. Gone. It’s far from the first time and I’m not going to go through it anymore.
I have given this app too many chances over years of it getting worse. I’m embarrassed to have pre-ordered the Apple Watch Nike+ S3. Even when it comes I will absolutely not be giving this app another chance. If you’ve read this far, consider yourself warned.
Great app for rec runner, needs better HR support
I think this is a great app for the average runner but if you are serious about your running you want an app that is going to at least give you the option to focus on your heart rate with regards to what zone you are in and using the audio coaching cues to tell the runner what zone they should be in on recovery runs or tempo runs or whatever. I like how on the “first run” and “next run” the coach keeps telling the runner to slow down and take it easy but doesn’t explain the why behind it. The why is to keep you in zone 2 because most runners are in zone 3 or 4 even as an “easy run” and they don’t even know it.
I love this app and would use it exclusively but because it doesn’t have an option to focus on heart rate for training I would rather use the Pear app.
Also, when using the wrist monitoring on my watch it shows my bpm but at the end of the run doesn’t give a graph of my heart rate. When I use my chest strap paired to my Apple Watch the nike app shows “—“ in the bpm section but when the run is finished does show a graph for my run. If this was fixed, especially the chest strap issue I would be more likely to use the app as my main because I know where I need to keep my heart rate to stay in zone.. but if it isn’t showing me it does no good.
