    Whether you are just starting a cycling class or have enjoyed the popular workout for years, this app can be very useful. It is one of the most advanced apps out there for cycling or mountain biking. It transforms your phone into a useful fitness calculator, complete with maps, intervals, maps and advancements. Keep track of your distance as you travel 5 to 10 miles more with this useful app.

  • Great app, great support Aug 13, 2019

    I had been using the app for a few months when I got a set of power meter pedals (favero assioma). At first I could not get them so show all the info I wanted and Cyclemeter did not seem to be receiving the l/r balance data at all. A few email back and forth solved most of these issues but still couldn’t figure out the l/r balance issue. My emails were escalated to one of the software developers and we were pretty quickly able to figure it out. Great service. Basically the pedals are set to send all the data (for a Bluetooth connection) through the left pedal. They can also be set to send data individually and this is what Cyclemeter needs. Once I had paired them with the default setting I could no see the right pedal until I had removed the left pedal both from Cyclemeter AND from the iOS Bluetooth settings. Then I could go into Cyclemeter’s device settings and connect to each pedal and I was able to record all the data.

    I cannot believe the wealth of features this app provides for only $9.99! I’m saying goodbye to my MVP account with MapMyRide and switching to Cyclemeter. Not only does this app offer more insight into my rides and unlimited flexibility, but it also costs a quarter of what I was paying. I’ve only used this app for two rides so far but it has won me over! I have recently purchased a set of speed+cadence sensors that I’m excited to try out with this app. I also LOVE the Apple Watch integration that allows me to remotely control the app and view my stats. I am just in awe of how well this app is designed and thought out! The only thing I noticed that didn’t seem right is that the Elevation Gain or ‘Ascent’ I believe it is termed in Cyclemeter, is not showing the feet of elevation I climbed over the course of my ride. Perhaps I don’t have it set up correctly. Would love some input from Abvio on this. Thank you for making such an incredible resource for cyclists!

    I've used Cyclemeter for three seasons and am looking forward to my fourth. It captures far more data than you could want - I can't imagine wanting any more. Exporting to a spreadsheet, if you keep a log is straight forward. I use Apple Numbers and add my blood sugars to the spreadsheet so I can better manage my diabetes. I really like this app. Although I never used the others on my phone, I find this to be very complete and packed with great features. I have the Elite version, which was so much more reasonably priced than the competitors. I especially like the auto email feature so my wife knows where I am on my solo rides in case of an emergency. New addition to this review: I now use the Wahoo RFLK & speed sensor with Cyclemeter. Both work very well with Cyclemeter, giving me even more data and versatility. I still highly recommend this app! Third review: after another year with Cyclemeter, I am still very satisfied. I once used a Garmin, but now Cyclemeter has totally replaced it. I also want to add that the tech support is very responsive. - Email them with a question and you get a timely response. I am extremely satisfied with this app. Fourth review: I still consider this a fantastic app. I used it for all of last riding season and look forward to using it this year. I use the Elite version, which is very economical and so packed with features. I highly recommend this app.

    This is a great cycling app as long as you train & retrain yourself on exactly how to use it. It’s served me well quite a few times, and I appreciate the detailed summary at the end. Unfortunately, it is far too easy to screw things up without realizing it. Case in point, this morning I created a new route, hit start, stopped when I was done, only to find out I was still apparently modifying a ride I had done weeks ago. This means it’s impossible for me to see how many miles I just rode, and even the splits are done on 5 mile segments and have nothing to do with where you may have made stops, or even turned off the app for some days. What did I miss? It’s imperative that you press “done” after stopping your ride. Even opening the app weeks later and creating a new route does not automatically stop the previous ride. So whenever opening the app, be sure to look for a “done” button and press it before starting your ride.

  • Great app for data junkies! May 6, 2021

    By tymxposure
    I’ve been using Cyclemeter for going on two years and am still finding new ways to sort and display information. I’m a little worried my head might explode if I added power meter pedals! I’ve found one irritating quirk when using auto stop on rides. It might affect other activities , as well. The situation where I noticed it was a day I rode to do errands; I had several stops – a couple of them over an hour in length. At the end of the day, I ended the ride (done) and Cyclemeter reported what seemed like an accurate amount of time for the time I was actually riding. All good. BUT when the app synced with the Apple fitness app, I noticed I was credited with 577 exercise minutes - the total elapsed time from when I left the house until my return. I’m not a programmer, but I would thing this should be a pretty easy fix. I’d have to ride a century to log 577 minutes of actual ‘exercise!’
  • Good app but bugs and lacking features. Mar 21, 2019

    By awer25
    There are 1,001 reasons to use this app, and it really is good. I just want to point out a few issues and requests. 1. lately when I open the app on my watch, it shows no connection to the phone, even if the app is running on the phone. Only fix I know of is to uninstall and reinstall app which is not really a solution. For diagnostic purposes I’m using an iPhone X and Apple Watch S4 LTE. 2. It does not work in standalone mode on LTE Apple Watches like some other apps, and needs the phone in range. This defeats the purpose of the LTE watch since I can’t bike with just my watch if I want to use Cyclemeter. 3. Feature request - can we have a way to show team members on the map? I’m part of a 6-person team and would really love to be able to see each other on the map as people can get lost in races and you don’t always know if they are just ahead or trailing behind. This feature would be amazing. Overall thanks for making a great app. Cyclemeter has been my go-to cycling app for years.

    Guys rethink your charging policy, a feature like ' automatic stop detection' is free in Strava/Komoot/Openrunner many more - nobody dares to ask a premium subscription for that ! Honestly: added value for your app is all the sensor support - just ask for that a premium subscription pls. Further the choice of an output storage folder is missing - for Android that's not practical most users would use their memory card. Why asking a birth date in settings - isn't age good enough ?

    5-Stars on my previous iPhone. Simply a fail since I bought an Android. I know it is the OnePlus 5 phone's fault. It has agressive power management and shuts down my background apps around 20-30 min into my ride. I LOVE cyclemeter and their tech support tried to help. If you have an iPhone you will love it. If you have an Android, beware. Apparently some Androids work, many don't... depending on the OS mods made by the manufacturer. I bought a Leyzne Super gps and love it!
  • Ruined Their Product UPDATE: DO NOT BUY Jul 22, 2020

    By Law reviewer
    NOW A TOTAL PIECE OF CRAP. ENDLESS ADS TOSS YOUR INFO WHILE BIKING AND AT FINISH. LESS THAN ONE RIDE IN THREE NOW GETS SAVED. EMAIL STOPPED WORKING. OTHER BUGS MAKE NO LONGER RELIABLE AND NO LONGER USABLE. Not loyal to their early customers. Was nice a few years ago — then stripped features I had once paid for. But, app is no longer reliable. About half of my cycle workouts are lost due to poor GPS — which is not the case as the blue dot constantly shows where I am. Not used to be until after “upgrade”. Their coding for GPS is really, really bad — it erases the entire workout instead of dashed lines between good GPS locations. This means my monthly distance and calorie reports are useless. Oh, even though I once bought their premium — now I have popup ads every few seconds. I think they interfere with the GPS tracking. Bottom line: this app not worth the trouble, let alone subscribing for it!
  • Big Battery Drain! Not accurate. Stalker app! Apr 24, 2020

    By Sea-Bow
    I decided to give this app a try but it did not perform as accurately as I was hoping it would. The speedometer was no where near accurate. To test, I used my tractor that has an absolute constant speed necessary for crop farming. I set my rpm and gearing for precisely 4 mph. This app never read nor stayed near 4 mph. It read waves of fluctuations from 1.77 mph to 7.26 mph. Not good. During this time, the phone’s battery drains very quickly. So I deleted the app. Even after deleting, the phone’s charge drops quickly with no apps running. This is a new iPhone, only 2 weeks old. It did not behave like this before installing this app. I am suspicious that they have installed tracking factors that do not get removed when deleting the app. This feels like an ex-boyfriend stalking you and draining the life out of you. Beware! I feel it is best to stay away from this app.
  • 3-stars to 1-star Jun 20, 2020

    By Jelly o the month
    My previous review was three stars. Since then, my elite membership has got me an app that doesn’t even provide data—other than an estimated calorie burn. No mileage, route, time enroute. Nothing. I would really like an app that I can just start at the beginning of my ride and know that it’s working. I really don’t want to spend my time off the bike troubleshooting. Even the basic Apple activity app provides at least SOME data. Original review: I like the amount of info and for the most part, the Apple Watch functionality. However, heart rate info is off from what my Apple Watch heart rate app shows. Seems to overestimate calories burned, as well. The info is very hard to read in the sun, especially the dark blue. I do like the auto start/stop feature. I just don’t think this is worth the subscription price.
  • Doesn’t support Apple Watch stand alone Aug 5, 2018

    By weaverjs23
    The app has a lot of great features. I used to be a user of Runmeter and thought this would be a nice addition to my workout tracking. Unfortunately I read about all the great feature for this app in the App Store but I missed the one line that stated that the app works with Apple Watch but you must have your iPhone with you. I paid the $10 subscription, took my bike on a trip and then found that my watch wasn’t tracking even though I have cellular and GPS on my watch. I’m Impress with the features but can’t believe the app developers haven’t integrated the app with the Apple Watch without a phone tethered to it. I bought the watch to ditch the need for a phone. I guess I’ll have to search for a new app.
  • TERRIBLE UPDATES!!!!! Aug 5, 2018

    By JayPriddy
    Let me start by saying I’ve had this app for almost a year now without any issues. It was awesome, I told everyone how much I enjoyed using it. Now there’s this new “update” that has made this app absolutely horrible. My last four rides the app has just stopped tracking randomly. It makes the app pretty much useless. I’ve used free apps that track better than this. I’m going to give it another week and if nothing changes I am going to switch apps. It makes no sense at all to have a app that is supposed to track just stop tracking especially when you’re paying for it. I don’t even know why this makes me so angry but good lord please fix whatever you guys did to make it so crappy.
  • Inconsistent sync with Apple Watch Aug 19, 2020

    By uscbob
    After getting an Apple Watch, I tried out three watch apps for recording my rides. Strava was never accurate, Apple never would pause for stops, and Garmin had inflated calories. When I found Cyclemeter, I thought I found the perfect app for iPhone and Apple Watch. Then early in 2020, the Apple Watch would stop communicating with the phone. About half of my rides, an icon of a red circle around a phone with a line through it would appear in the upper left hand corner of my watch. The iPhone app would still record my ride and get heart rate data from the watch. Finishing rides would result in a notification that said I had to wait for data from the watch. I learned that I could delete and reinstall the app on my watch, but that workaround stopped working. Recently the watch got stuck at less than a mile for a 20 mile ride, while my iPhone recorded the ride but said I burned 0 calories. I would give this five stars from the first few months, but must lower to two until the apps (watch and iPhone) start doing what I paid them to do.
  • Runs like hot garbage on Series 0 Oct 3, 2017

    By mhlkjhdf
    Used to run awesome on my Series 0, now it takes me three or four tries to get it to sync with the phone, it absolutely refuses to resume after pausing, and whenever I’m done with a route it asks me five or six times if I want to share with Strava (yes! I always do you stupid app), makes me hit “Done” again (even though I already told you I was done when I hit the big Done button on the first screen), which it then just dumps me back to the beginning. I have to do this over and over again before I finally get the reset button. UX disaster and runs like Crysis on a 486. Terrible. Might as well go back to Strava, the only reason I stopped using their app was that it again started to run like Crysis on a 486 after months of working fine.

  • Excellent App for all kinds of Workouts! ## 1 Wish Feb 16, 2020

    By Subs accounts
    This app has by far has every data aspect that could possibly be squeezed out of a workout, and puts all that into a very intuitive assembly. I have used trackers for a long time, and use this app on my Apple Watch to start and stop workouts, in my opinion the best - BUT PLEASE make the Watch App independent of the phone, very hard to run with a iPhone XS Max in your front pocket for any distance. And I have just tested 4 of the other most popular phone independent Apps out there, and either they are filled with adds (even with the payed version), not very accurate or so focused on social data sharing i believe they forgot what the app was for in the first place. For reference I have paid for the Elite version of Cyclemeter for two years now, using on watch 4 but have had it on a 3 and no issues ever with crashes or sync to the health app and other apps.

It tracks everything I need and more! I definitely recommend it!
  • Great workout app May 25, 2018

    By Mattelfesso
    I’ve used cyclemeter for 5 years and it keeps getting better. I use it mostly for cycling, but it allows you to choose other activities such as running or hiking, so I have no need for other workout apps. I briefly used a Wahoo heart rate monitor with it, but wearing a chest strap was annoying. Now with an Apple watch, it is easy to control without reaching in my pocket for my phone, and it does a great job of recording my heart rate from the watch. It does not have social media functions, but will post to Strava if you want. (Overall, it’s a much more useful app than Strava). It will also post my workout results to my iCal, email or facebook. There are links to their website which integrates the route map with plots of speed, heart rate, and altitude, gives splits, etc. Overall the data is well presented, and it’s hard to imagine what else one might want.

  • Setup can be frustrating. Oct 9, 2018

    By mmaguire
    The iPhone app works great once you figure out how to set it up. There are so many different configurations and calculations that you get lost in the maze of options. Once you turn something on you wish you hadn’t it can take a while to go back through all the options to turn it off again. However once set up, it works great. Lots of good info. I’m planning to get my first Apple Watch (S4 cellular) and was thinking I’d use this app on the watch to track all my info but according to the support pages it must be connected to the phone to function. The entire point of the watch for working out it to ditch the phone when running/biking so you don’t have to carry it. What’s the point of the APP if it can’t function autonomously and then upload the info back to the phone when you’re finished? Seems like a pointless app for the watch.

    Trully a great app with all the riding data necessary for an amature to a serious cyclist . One feature that is greatly missed is the ability to select a safety contact and that that particular person cannot follow you on your ride. This is a great safety feature for both road riders and MTB riders. Accidents can happen - and this feature could save ones life. Other competitive apps carry this feature however not the detailed metrics of cyclemeter. Please take this under consideration on your next update.

    Great app and had everything I'm looking for but a few things are totally off. I just cycled and in the splits screen my highest speed was 70mph, which just wasn't possible. But in the Laps/intervals screen my highest speed was 38mph. In the stopwatch my highest speed was 45mph. So, I have absolutely no idea what my speed were. Also, the stop detection doesn't seem to stop the clock when you stop. I have no idea how to set timers for interval training. Love it but needs a bit of work.
  • A strong cycling app Aug 19, 2017

    By William W. Snelling
    I've used this app for years and it has served me quite well. All of the data one would want from such an app is available and it is generally user friendly. My only cons are that 1) it tends to shortchange the climbing numbers by a significant margin (when compared to every other app and device of my riding partners) and 2) it would be great if it automatically detected when I stopped and it paused the stopwatch until I resumed. As it currently operates, I have to manually stop and restart and occasionally I forget to restart! Other than those issues, it is a good product.
  • Bait & Charge Jul 26, 2017

    By 1madgreek
    I recently started using app & keep getting pop ups to upgrade, which is fine I'm usually good at closing them! But today as I'm done w/ my ride, I try to reset the info & get the pop-up, while trying to close it (isn't easy to find little x) I'm tapping the edges in bright outdoors & get a message 'Thanks for your purchase'. I don't mind paying for it when I'm ready but the way the app developers try to get you is reprehensible!! It used to be two way authentication to verify purchases but nowadays it's automatic one tap & you're done! NO Thanks!
  • Almost great Feb 19, 2019

    By TravisB.
    This app almost does it all. The killer feature for me was being able to use my Apple Watch as my HR monitor while cycling. I’m shocked other apps don’t provide this. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is not being able to adjust the font size for all my pages. On my main page I want a couple of metrics big so I can glance down and see them similar to how Strava and Bike Computer display, however it seems I am limited to only changing the color.
  • Interface could use work but a bargain just the same Oct 28, 2017

    By Navin R. Johnson
    This app gives a ton of information and is a relative bargain at $9.99/yr for the Elite version. However, the interface could use some polishing as things are hard to find and even confusing at times. I’ve also had issues recently with recording stopping during a run because another app opened. This didn’t start happening until I had used the app for four months or so.
  • Good app but bugs and lacking features. Mar 21, 2019

    By awer25
    There are 1,001 reasons to use this app, and it really is good. I just want to point out a few issues and requests. 1. lately when I open the app on my watch, it shows no connection to the phone, even if the app is running on the phone. Only fix I know of is to uninstall and reinstall app which is not really a solution. For diagnostic purposes I’m using an iPhone X and Apple Watch S4 LTE. 2. It does not work in standalone mode on LTE Apple Watches like some other apps, and needs the phone in range. This defeats the purpose of the LTE watch since I can’t bike with just my watch if I want to use Cyclemeter. 3. Feature request - can we have a way to show team members on the map? I’m part of a 6-person team and would really love to be able to see each other on the map as people can get lost in races and you don’t always know if they are just ahead or trailing behind. This feature would be amazing. Overall thanks for making a great app. Cyclemeter has been my go-to cycling app for years.

    Elite version . Does everything it said but too clunky. It's a right faff around to import a route. I don't know why you would hide this behind loads of menus. (It's under advanced for some reason). V Good for displaying information but on the whole I found it too confusing with 'path' and 'track' etc. meaning different things and the map needs to zoom in towards junctions. Was hoping after spending ages working out how to import a route it would follow it and do something if you went wrong but to be fair it doesn't advertise turn by turn route following. Or maybe I just couldn't work it out. After ages messing about with it I'm giving up.
  • Good, but... Oct 23, 2018

    By Aaauuuggghhh
    I like a lot about this app, but it quits working too often. About 1 in 5 rides I get to a stop point and check it only to see it stopped working many miles ago. No I usually don’t have other apps running. Sometimes I run Google maps in parallel, but the drop outs don’t correspond to whether that is on or not. I turn off the screen while riding to not drain the battery and to not get distracted, so I never see it drop out. In all fairness I had the same problem with RoadBikePro, which is not as good when it’s working. It’s a bit disappointing, as logging my rides is important to me. I may have to buy a dedicated Garmin bike computer I guess. Sure wish these guys could fix the problem. Note that a couple rides when this quit were with Google maps running, and that doesn’t quit at the same time. So it’s not the phone GPS chip or connection.
  • Needs to add some features May 21, 2019

    By cesjr
    I’ve been using this for years but would switch to a dedicated bike computer if I had the money. It’s missing a few features that they should have added by now. One, the ability to trim a recorded ride. I can’t count how many times I’ve forgotten to stop the ride after driving half way home. They tell you to export to Strava to trim and then re-import. I did this like once then never bothered again. Also some kind of optional auto start or stop feature can’t be that hard to implement. Maybe when the bike is moving for more than a few minutes and there’s a cadence reading, it could auto start? Doesn’t seem like rocket science. Also better integration with route sources like MTB project or trailforks like some bike computers are implementing.

    By Vishal Naik
    I used to 😍 this app, but now that it's taken the features I loved and packaged them into a subscription service I'm less than thrilled. Nevertheless, if the app works flawlessly and streamlines an aspect of my fitness routine, I can make a case that it's worth the 10 bucks/year But it isn't doing that. I had hoped the fitness activity would automatically with MyfitnessPal, and just generally be better than when I used it in 2013-2015, but it isn't. And I keep getting an API ERROR ALERT.
  • Sometimes I like the app Mar 9, 2020

    By Kbrtzlf
    The app is good when it’s it’s working, the other day it was on and running but didn’t record anything IDK 😐 There’s a Ton if options none of them make any sense as to what they do and they don’t exactly work the way I had hoped they would. Like the competitive part I really was hoping it would tell you verbally that your behind your old pace but I have yet to get it to do anything like that. As much as I like this app there’s a reason to hate it. Such as the Bicycle I add the wheel size but it doesn’t actually record the information. Guess I’ll go back to using road bike app it does keep me on pace even it it’s only by time and distance.
  • Great app, watch app crashes though Jul 6, 2019

    By VZX-CO
    I have been using this app for about four years. Generally love functionality, data, history, etc. I pay for the elite subscription. Seems cheap for amount I get out of it. The one things that is incredibly irksome is to find out Apple Watch portion of app crashes or closed mid ride and you lose all heart rate data...grrrrrr! I’m on latest Apple Watch, OS, etc. Figured out last year how to set watch so pressing crown doesn’t switch apps. Today, 1/2 way point of 26 mile ride watch app froze or crashes. Didn’t see it until mile 25. Overall though amazing app if you pay for it.
  • It’s okay but..... Apr 4, 2018

    By Don't know
    Tons of settings on the elite but the only thing I do not like is that you cannot increase the fonts. When out in the sun they get washed out with the background. You can increase the numbers but not the font. If this is not improved by next year when I’m up for renewal I’ll cancel it. It can eat up your battery a little. Went out on three and half hour ride and I was down to 25%. I have a battery pack case though. So this app is great because of all the settings and features but should improve on the fonts.
  • Ads in this app Aug 13, 2018

    By rymc1950
    I have used this app for about 4 years. It’s always been a great app for keeping your exercising information. This year they decided to send me ads even though I pay to use the app. I always put my phone in my bike bag while I’m cycling don’t want to be distracted by it while cycling. I just opened my bag after a 2 hour ride to find my phone blazing hot because it’s been displaying an ad for who knows how long. I hope I don’t need to get rid of the app to save my phone because I really like the app but I really hate the ads.
  • Incessantly Incomplete Aug 17, 2020

    By mtbikerf1
    This could be the perfect app, but it misses one key feature that’s available in most other cycling apps. Their map does not show bike paths. How does an “obsessively complete” cycling app neglect that feature? This app has the choice to use either Apple Maps or google maps. Google maps already has a cycling path overlay, but it’s not available through this app. I’ve reached out over the years about this. Always got a standard response that they’ll pass it onto development. The app is rich in other features. And it’s no slouch otherwise. But if you like to explore different paths. It is quite annoying to have to switch back and forth to another map program. Which is a shame because I love all the other features this app has to offer. But this one missing feature has kept me from using the app and/or subscribing to elite.

    5-Stars on my previous iPhone. Simply a fail since I bought an Android. I know it is the OnePlus 5 phone's fault. It has agressive power management and shuts down my background apps around 20-30 min into my ride. I LOVE cyclemeter and their tech support tried to help. If you have an iPhone you will love it. If you have an Android, beware. Apparently some Androids work, many don't... depending on the OS mods made by the manufacturer. I bought a Leyzne Super gps and love it!
  • Doesn’t support Apple Watch stand alone Aug 5, 2018

    By weaverjs23
    The app has a lot of great features. I used to be a user of Runmeter and thought this would be a nice addition to my workout tracking. Unfortunately I read about all the great feature for this app in the App Store but I missed the one line that stated that the app works with Apple Watch but you must have your iPhone with you. I paid the $10 subscription, took my bike on a trip and then found that my watch wasn’t tracking even though I have cellular and GPS on my watch. I’m Impress with the features but can’t believe the app developers haven’t integrated the app with the Apple Watch without a phone tethered to it. I bought the watch to ditch the need for a phone. I guess I’ll have to search for a new app.
  • TERRIBLE UPDATES!!!!! Aug 5, 2018

    By JayPriddy
    Let me start by saying I’ve had this app for almost a year now without any issues. It was awesome, I told everyone how much I enjoyed using it. Now there’s this new “update” that has made this app absolutely horrible. My last four rides the app has just stopped tracking randomly. It makes the app pretty much useless. I’ve used free apps that track better than this. I’m going to give it another week and if nothing changes I am going to switch apps. It makes no sense at all to have a app that is supposed to track just stop tracking especially when you’re paying for it. I don’t even know why this makes me so angry but good lord please fix whatever you guys did to make it so crappy.
  • Inconsistent sync with Apple Watch Aug 19, 2020

    By uscbob
    After getting an Apple Watch, I tried out three watch apps for recording my rides. Strava was never accurate, Apple never would pause for stops, and Garmin had inflated calories. When I found Cyclemeter, I thought I found the perfect app for iPhone and Apple Watch. Then early in 2020, the Apple Watch would stop communicating with the phone. About half of my rides, an icon of a red circle around a phone with a line through it would appear in the upper left hand corner of my watch. The iPhone app would still record my ride and get heart rate data from the watch. Finishing rides would result in a notification that said I had to wait for data from the watch. I learned that I could delete and reinstall the app on my watch, but that workaround stopped working. Recently the watch got stuck at less than a mile for a 20 mile ride, while my iPhone recorded the ride but said I burned 0 calories. I would give this five stars from the first few months, but must lower to two until the apps (watch and iPhone) start doing what I paid them to do.
  • Nice app, but does not work as advertised Oct 17, 2020

    By StillNotWorking
    The app has some great functions. However, I will not be renewing the subscription. It claims very clearly that it will automatically upload your data to Starva. It simply does not. I have worked with their customer service, and the rep was quite nice. That still does not change the fact that after logging in and, granting permission and other steps it still doesn’t work. Until the developer addresses this issue with a real fix, I could mot possible give it more that two stars. Nice try, good functions, but you set the expectations too high. I give up.
  • Apple Watch App not syncing with iPhone App Oct 11, 2020

    By Todd Foxx
    I have been using this app for a while now and it’s always worked for me well. Not sure what happened but in the last four cycle and exercises I have done my Apple Watch app is not connecting with the iPhone app. I am getting an icon of a phone with a red circle and line through it. Tried everything I could think of including uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Nothing is working. Once this work like it should, then it would definitely be a 5 star app. Please help me with this!
  • Doesn’t support landscape mode Sep 29, 2018

    By jonathomp
    This app looked really outdated but I decided to give it a try against my better judgement because of the high ratings. The app has a lot of functionality, but it’s clunky. For instance, within the settings pane you can’t go back to the parent menu without switching to a different tab and starting over. I was about to start my ride when I realized the app wouldn’t switch to landscape mode. I’m not entirely sure how other users got by cycling in portrait mode, but that was a deal breaker for me.
  • App is ok, expensive Mar 2, 2019

    By StylesC45
    That app itself is ok, I like all the options and charts but it might be a little advanced for your average cyclist. $10 a year is too expensive for me to continue to use the app, I live in Michigan so I can only cycle a few months a year..I realize this won’t affect everyone but for me $10 is too expensive for just a few months of use when there are other options for free that have the same features. I’d gladly pay a one time fee of $10 to buy the app.
  • Still have to bring your iPhone on every workout Apr 29, 2021

    By Petrolero
    I bought an Apple Watch so I could leave my phone at home. This app is great as long as you don't mind bringing your iPhone along on every hike, run, or ride. Apple Watch users have requested that this app work in at least some fashion with the Apple watch without iPhone present but the developers still haven't implemented this. It's literally the first paragraph on Abvio's web page. Why won't the developers listen?
  • Cycling app with running plans Mar 21, 2019

    By tontobikermd
    There’s no cycling plans. Purchasing from training peaks or strava or another site can be done like TROAD but there’s no importing. Creating individual workouts on the daily has been a complete failure and hassle. To top it off, the app still turns off even if in the advanced I’ve asked it to stay on for 2 hours. Contacted support and she said told me where to enable it. wrote back, I know, still doesn’t work😂. Still waiting for a response.
  • Mar 8, 2021

    By frank adelhardt
    Guys rethink your charging policy, a feature like ' automatic stop detection' is free in Strava/Komoot/Openrunner many more - nobody dares to ask a premium subscription for that ! Honestly: added value for your app is all the sensor support - just ask for that a premium subscription pls. Further the choice of an output storage folder is missing - for Android that's not practical most users would use their memory card. Why asking a birth date in settings - isn't age good enough ?

  • Ruined Their Product UPDATE: DO NOT BUY Jul 22, 2020

    By Law reviewer
    NOW A TOTAL PIECE OF CRAP. ENDLESS ADS TOSS YOUR INFO WHILE BIKING AND AT FINISH. LESS THAN ONE RIDE IN THREE NOW GETS SAVED. EMAIL STOPPED WORKING. OTHER BUGS MAKE NO LONGER RELIABLE AND NO LONGER USABLE. Not loyal to their early customers. Was nice a few years ago — then stripped features I had once paid for. But, app is no longer reliable. About half of my cycle workouts are lost due to poor GPS — which is not the case as the blue dot constantly shows where I am. Not used to be until after “upgrade”. Their coding for GPS is really, really bad — it erases the entire workout instead of dashed lines between good GPS locations. This means my monthly distance and calorie reports are useless. Oh, even though I once bought their premium — now I have popup ads every few seconds. I think they interfere with the GPS tracking. Bottom line: this app not worth the trouble, let alone subscribing for it!
  • Big Battery Drain! Not accurate. Stalker app! Apr 24, 2020

    By Sea-Bow
    I decided to give this app a try but it did not perform as accurately as I was hoping it would. The speedometer was no where near accurate. To test, I used my tractor that has an absolute constant speed necessary for crop farming. I set my rpm and gearing for precisely 4 mph. This app never read nor stayed near 4 mph. It read waves of fluctuations from 1.77 mph to 7.26 mph. Not good. During this time, the phone’s battery drains very quickly. So I deleted the app. Even after deleting, the phone’s charge drops quickly with no apps running. This is a new iPhone, only 2 weeks old. It did not behave like this before installing this app. I am suspicious that they have installed tracking factors that do not get removed when deleting the app. This feels like an ex-boyfriend stalking you and draining the life out of you. Beware! I feel it is best to stay away from this app.
  • 3-stars to 1-star Jun 20, 2020

    By Jelly o the month
    My previous review was three stars. Since then, my elite membership has got me an app that doesn’t even provide data—other than an estimated calorie burn. No mileage, route, time enroute. Nothing. I would really like an app that I can just start at the beginning of my ride and know that it’s working. I really don’t want to spend my time off the bike troubleshooting. Even the basic Apple activity app provides at least SOME data. Original review: I like the amount of info and for the most part, the Apple Watch functionality. However, heart rate info is off from what my Apple Watch heart rate app shows. Seems to overestimate calories burned, as well. The info is very hard to read in the sun, especially the dark blue. I do like the auto start/stop feature. I just don’t think this is worth the subscription price.
  • Runs like hot garbage on Series 0 Oct 3, 2017

    By mhlkjhdf
    Used to run awesome on my Series 0, now it takes me three or four tries to get it to sync with the phone, it absolutely refuses to resume after pausing, and whenever I’m done with a route it asks me five or six times if I want to share with Strava (yes! I always do you stupid app), makes me hit “Done” again (even though I already told you I was done when I hit the big Done button on the first screen), which it then just dumps me back to the beginning. I have to do this over and over again before I finally get the reset button. UX disaster and runs like Crysis on a 486. Terrible. Might as well go back to Strava, the only reason I stopped using their app was that it again started to run like Crysis on a 486 after months of working fine.
  • One star for the price Jul 30, 2017

    By dustin harrison
    Over all I like the app, but the price kills it. It was acceptable when they used to charge a few bucks a year. I was totally fine with supporting the app with an annual fee of $4-5, but $10 is ridiculous. So it will cost me $100 for ten years? Sorry, not worth it. App developers don't understand that people may have multiple apps on their devices they might pay an annual subscription for. If they all charged $10, now I'm paying $200/yr for 20 different apps that I use? With a world wide market, app developers would make actually make more money charging less because more people would be willing to pay a few bucks compared to $10.
  • App has lots of option but has some major flaws Sep 30, 2019

    By Tbobtx
    The app has major flaw that needs addressing before I can even think about subscribing. 1). GPS tracking falls short literally. It is at least 10% off from Apple Watch tracking and a friend’s Strava app which was within 0.1mi of my Apple workout. Now I understand GPS is based on signal strength, etc but when have two apps using same gps and you have a known distance marker and the other app is almost dead on, there is an issue. 2). Mountain biking and road riding over same distance were almost the same in terms of calorie burn. As all know 10mi on mountain bike on moderate trails burns more calories than 10mi on road bike unless your road bike is constantly going up a hill. 3). Cannot start new ride from the iwatch easily. Can only start and stop. Clicking done seems to do nothing unless hit it a few times. Then Have to wait for reset to pop up but why do I need to do that if I already ended my activity on phone?
  • GPS functionality problem with most recent update Aug 15, 2020

    By Mr. Meltz
    I’ve been using Cyclemeter for 3 years without problems. Since the last update my SPEED and CALORIES remain at 0 when I start my ride. I have to go to general - privacy - location services - and uncheck Cyclemeter and then recheck it back on. Sometimes this works other times it doesn’t. I’ve also tried to go into the settings on the app itself and uncheck internet access and recheck it back on. Again sometimes it works right away and sometimes it takes a few minutes to work. I’m not sure where the problem lies nor how to resolve it.
  • Complete Apple Watch support not available May 7, 2018

    By Rocket2Me
    I have a Gen 4 Apple Watch with GPS & cellular. Although Abvio advertises support for Apple Watch, it will NOT work to track your route if you leave your iPhone at home. I do more running than cycling, and it’s really a pain in the summer to have to carry my iPhone in my running shorts pocket or in an armband. Keep in mind that I have a watch that is in many respects a miniature iPhone (with GPS, bluetooth, and cellular capabilities). I emailed a Abvio support about the issue, and I was told that it wan’t a priority for their developers at this time to make a cellular Apple Watch work standalone with Cyclemeter.
