  • Goodbye calorie ring!

    By Landthief 1972
    Would give this app 5 stars, but didn’t realize it calculates kcal on gps, not steps. I completed my calorie and exercise rings on my iPhone as I was doing a run on my treadmill. As soon as the run was over, this app calculated my kcal as TWO, yes 2. Then it overwrote my HealthKit data, pushed it to my watch, and boom, my calorie ring dropped over 200 points. Did I mention I had already told the app to not use HealthKit? Finally figured out I had to go into HealthKit and block kcal tracking from this app. This is a bug! Your app’s data should never overwrite the watch’s data!

    For five years, 5K has been my running buddy... always ready to Go, no complaints, any kind of weather... always encouraging and tracking it all..just perfect!!
  • Very disappointed!

    By ZY-6265-2701
    I bought this app in a fitness bundle. I should have known it would be a dud because the bundle was only a dollar or two more than the app alone. Consistently crashes when I try to play music through the app, will not stay open on my Apple Watch when music is even playing, fails to update itself as I’m running thereby causing lag on the Watch and the iPhone, and it can’t even be used without the iPhone nearby! The whole point of having GPS on the watch is to track movement and receive app prompts (not texts or anything) without needing the phone attached to your hip. Don’t waste your money.

  • Question

    By JennT2612
    I am looking into the Apple Watch Series 3 Nike edition and wanted to know if this app works independent of the phone without adding the cellular (would like to run hands free/without my phone). Thanks!

  • Nice app!

    Starts at the right level to prevent injury. Voicing is also encouraging and not annoying. Enjoyable interface and allows Spotify to play in the background (would love integration...).
