    Please adapt this app to be able to function in airplane mode (AM)! Winter is coming and our phone battery energy gets zapped within a few short minutes because of the cold. Also, for the fact that people forget or don't have time to charge their phone before or after they go out to run, allowing the gps to effectively work on AM would be a huge convenience. I love this app BUT since the Nike running app uses this feature, I'll be using that app until this app gets up to date. :)

    First, they get 5 stars for support. I couldn’t get my Polar heart rate strap to work and I emailed them. Got a reply in less than 30 minutes, on a weekend, with a fix that worked. Pair it to the phone, not the watch. Unfortunately the heart rate does not update very often on the watch app. It seems to only work when the phone is unlocked. Beyond that, the app has tons of potential. Great stats for running and walking. However, the interface really needs some help. All the right info is there, but it’s not pleasant to look at or use. On the watch screens you have to scroll to see all the info. I also enjoyed the running plans, the interval training features, and the emailing of runs to let others know where I am. If the heart rate screen worked better on the watch I maybe would have paid the yearly fee. If it had that plus a better interface, it would be easy to pay for it. I’ll check back later to see how it develops.

    I used Runmeter for 7 years on my iPhone and expected to lose all of that history when I moved to a Galaxy. Runmeter's Support team is so professional and helpful that I was completely blown away. I'm used to never hearing back when I contact an app's support, but Runmeter provided clear and concise instructions that actually worked, and all of my data came with me. I'm happy to pay the annual fee to upgrade to Elite for a product that I've personally road tested for 3000 miles. (That sounds really impressive until you divide it by 7 years!) Keep up the good work!
  • Terrific App Jun 24, 2018

    By Raypdx
    I’m getting back into running after many years off. I’ve tried all of the current crop of apps. Nothing is as flexible and configurable as this. Although the Apple Watch app is not “stand-alone” (bummer since I have an Apple Watch 3), the screens are beautiful and customizable. Audio cues are customizable. In addition, the training plan is infinitely customizable. To be fair, it’s generic for say a 5k/10k and doesn’t have a “dynamic” component (where it’s modified every week) With others (mapmyrun, Runkeeper,) it’s surprisingly difficult to modify plans, switch a run from one day to another, etc.... I don’t know why this app isn’t more popular. As someone who has spent a bunch of time comparing the options ( including the premium versions) this was the best fit for me. Please pay the modest fee for the Elite version and continue to support it!

    The elite version is the way to go with this app! I love the notifications it gives me while I'm running so I know how far I've gone or how long I've been running. It also allows me to listen to my music and still receive calls while I'm running. The design is intuitive, complete, and easy to look at. I love being able to see my path on the map. I appreciate being able to share my run with my husband so he knows where I am. Being able to keep a history of all of my runs helps me track my progress and inspires me to improve. Runmeter is fully customizable and the customer service from the developers is top notch!

  • Best running app out there May 8, 2020

    By Dry Bones70
    I’ve been a Garmin guy for the past 15+ years but decided to see if I could switch to my Apple watch and be as happy. I tried a bunch of apps but didn’t find one that I liked better than my Garmin until this one. It does EVERYTHING and then some. My favorite feature is one that surprisingly few apps offer, the ability to compete against your previous times on a rout (ghost runner feature). This is something Garmin has always had and I’m glad to see in incorporated into this app. The only thing lacking is the ability to use it as a stand alone. Currently you have to take your phone along for the ride. I don’t have a problem with this, it fits nicely into my running belt, but I know others do.

    I run in an area where google maps and my hunting apps have no problem tracking me via GPS. Runmeter however is basically just a stop watch because it says my GPS signal is so poor. I was trying the free version, maybe that $9.99 a month they keep shoving down my throat for the premium version would somehow boost the signal. I can guarantee I'll never find out.
  • Useless without Elite Upgrade Mar 25, 2018

    By Scott
    I've been a runmeter user since 2013 or earlier. I upgraded to Elite in 2014 when it was a reasonable $ 4.99. Then, in 2017 I STILL upgraded to Elite when the priced doubled to $9.99. It's actually a great app, but without the Elite upgrade, it's pretty useless (to me, anyway). Here's why. I went for my first outside run in 2018 and didn't notice my Elite upgrade expired last week. I spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong with my heart rate chest strap. It turns out you need ELITE to measure your heart rate. You're kidding right..? Nope. How about just measure your steps..? Still need Elite. I didn't take the time to detail everything you lose without ELITE but for me, if a running app can't track my heart rate or at least steps, I'll just switch back to my fitness band or use a HR watch with my chest strap.

    Stops Tracking intermittently. I went with this program after seeing a friend use it on a walk. I thought the output it created was nicer that what i was using. However, the program i used worked flawlessly and this one kept dropping position so the data us obviously worthless. She was using a iPhone and myself an Android. I will probably ask for a refund.
  • Inaccurate to a fault May 30, 2018

    By Mpschmitt
    I don’t know why no one else has mentioned this yet, but the pace measurements are all over the map (literally and figuratively) in this app. I’ve been using this for a while and I’ve observed the following behaviors on a number of occasions: 1. It often stalls out and stops registering any change in time or distance 2. When it is working it often reports inaccurate information. For example, on a slight downgrade of a hill it reported that I was running a 5:30 pace, then on an equally slight upgrade it reported I was running a 10:00 pace. My pace was actually about the same on both hills. I’m not that fast, and I’m not that slow. At one point during my run it reported that my pace was 0:00 for about a quarter of a mile, at which point I turned it off and uninstalled it.
  • Downgraded to 1 star May 20, 2020

    By Duecel
    I still love this app on the iPhone for the customizations but hate that it’s still not stand alone on the watch. It also, for whatever reason, has a problem with consistency on connectivity with the iPhone. I have my iPhone in my arm band on my left side and the watch on my right wrist and I get the no connectivity symbol often when running. Sometimes it just stops working completely with the app. Got to get with the program on stand alone with the watch. Until then I’m switching to Runkeeper who actually has a stand alone app for the watch. Also, the notifications on the Apple Watch don’t work. It doesn’t even announce start or stop but the have them there available. Stupid. Cancelled my subscription.
  • Watch App That Wont Work With Out The Phone Along For The Ride. Nov 3, 2017

    By Weeezzzzy24
    I had high hopes for this App as I have used a version of it various times through the years. That being said I got this App and upgraded to the elite. I thought it was going to be great until I went on my first run and was dumbfounded as to why my stats would not appear on my watch. I then quickly realized that like before in the past you had to find some way to lug your phone around with you to make this App work. Needless to say I was very disappointed. What is the point of making this App for the Apple Watch if it can't work independently??? Can the developers please get on untethering this App because it has some super legit features I just don't want to carry my phone.

    GPS tracking is not accurate. I've a Mate 20 Pro, and the free Google Fit app tracks perfectly while this paid app tracks the same route, but about 10 meters off to the left. Pls work on your tracking. One star because I've used the iOS version and it was perfect.

  • Meh-support nonexistent Mar 19, 2019

    By ReneeRoxie
    Update: I have tried twice to contact support and the emails have bounced back. Very frustrating. It has a ton of features that it’s impossible to know them all and a bit complicated to figure out. One of the biggest features that I liked no longer works. It used to post to Facebook when I was on a run and then read me all the likes and comments during the run. This helped get me through half marathon training and my first race in 2017. Now, I’m 2019, I’m training again and it no longer works. Might have to go find some other app.

    Very good app . Just configure runs you want to do and only takes a moment to change the settings from race to race. Watch out for phone going into battery saver as this switches off gps. If going for a run switch on battery saver first then switch on Gps this solves the problem if going on a really long run.
  • Incredible application May 30, 2018

    By Mike Bradshaw (bmike)
    The combination of superb engineering and refined software is incredible for this app. Well worth every penny and more. The power features are kindly enabled with a subscription so the initial cost can be kept low. The level of customization and flexibility to customize this app is far greater than i could ever use as a hiker, runner and cyclist. It complements Apple’s native apps and works incredible well with the watch. The developer and user support is also exceptionally good.
  • Seriously the best Sep 19, 2017

    By Mom32013
    For an iPhone user there is nothing better (can't speak to Watch usage). The UI is very intuitive but also highly customizable. Lots of data if you want it, and easy to analyze your race visually or share with friends via online explorer. Distance measurement appears to be dead-on whether I compare to Google Maps or an officially-measured road race course. Uploads to Strava are seamless. Love that you can track the mileage on your shoes!

    ➕One of the few apps that can do 1️⃣400m laps/intervals and 2️⃣400m custom announcements. Wahoo does both but lap announces pace only. Runkeeper does 1 only. Endomondo does 2 only. NRC can only do 1 manually. ➖Can set custom lap distance but not for splits. Selectable splits are {¼ ⅓ ½ 1 2 5}km and so on. Would like to have 100m, 200m and 400m splits too or fully custom if implementation details allow. ➖Request: Selectable graphs like Runkeeper, where u can trace your finger along the plot.

    This app is perfect on iOS, but the GPS is inaccurate on Android. I love Runmeter because there is no other tracking app that allows this much customization. Unfortunately, due to the GPS inaccuracy, I usually use MapMyRun instead.
  • Great overall, needs stand alone use for Apple Watch Jan 7, 2020

    I started jogging and running again after recovering from a previous running injury. LOVE this app overall, just wish it had stand alone functionality for Apple Watch. I like to leave my phone behind when I run, but I’ve been taking it because it gives great statistics. The pacing feature has helped me improve my 5k times and currently using to train for half marathons.

    I love this app on my iPhone. I just wish I could use it on my Apple Watch 3 without carryover no my phone along. I would love an app that allows me to set up a workout on my phone, upload the planned workout to my watch, then run the workout with just the watch, leaving the phone at home and sync the data back to the phone when I’m done. When you can give me that I’ll have 5 stars waiting😁.
  • Great app with one flaw Jan 29, 2021

    By freeman123
    Have been using Runmeter for 5 years, very good tracker and love the easy to use history over time. Only flaw - it should be able to be used without the iPhone on the iWatch. It would be great to go on a run with the watch only, then sync up that run with the phone later. Not sure why this functionality isn’t available. Would love the developer to work on this.
  • Love it but needs stand alone watch app Mar 21, 2019

    By GRoot9923
    I have used Runmeter for several years now and it is by far the best iPhone based running app. Now it just needs a stand alone watch app so you don’t have to lug around your phone on every run. Other running apps have this so despite my admiration for Runmeter, I may have to switch over to an alternative so I can run without my phone.
  • Lots of potential Jun 24, 2020

    First, they get 5 stars for support. I couldn’t get my Polar heart rate strap to work and I emailed them. Got a reply in less than 30 minutes, on a weekend, with a fix that worked. Pair it to the phone, not the watch. Unfortunately the heart rate does not update very often on the watch app. It seems to only work when the phone is unlocked. Beyond that, the app has tons of potential. Great stats for running and walking. However, the interface really needs some help. All the right info is there, but it’s not pleasant to look at or use. On the watch screens you have to scroll to see all the info. I also enjoyed the running plans, the interval training features, and the emailing of runs to let others know where I am. If the heart rate screen worked better on the watch I maybe would have paid the yearly fee. If it had that plus a better interface, it would be easy to pay for it. I’ll check back later to see how it develops.

  • Good app, but persistent issue with Music Dec 1, 2017

    By Irrate Buyer
    I’ve used the app for years, and while I really enjoy it, it seems to have a persistent issue with the iphone music app. The Runmeter will usually stop working correctly if one starts fiddling around with the music app during a run. I have, in the past, notified the developer of the issue. They did respond quickly and request data from my phone to help them identify the issue. The did acknowledge an issue after reviewing that data. However, they requested further data/access from my phone that I was not comfortable sharing, nor did I have the incentive to get into a project with them. So the problem persists. Having said that, everything else about Runmeter is pretty good

    So, I have had this app for years. It is the beat value running app and has a bucketload of features, especially the elite. Unfortunately, I have had problems recently on that i can'tget into plans, which is really annoying.
  • Problems constantly Mar 11, 2018

    By randallstone
    Runmeter is the most advanced running app. But if you do anything with your phone or watch other than Runmeter you’ll have some problems. If you like music on your runs, fahgetaboutit. It just doesn’t work as intended nor ever consistently. Simply put, I’ve been working with Runmeter for 6 years now. Two years ago I gave up exclusive use and stopped depending on my running mates to forward me their workouts for correction. It just never really worked. Since growing up and getting a Garmin device, I can at least use that and still use Runmeter to compare. I like that Elite will log weather data. But when your running app doesn’t do anything but the tertiary Wx logs, it isn’t really a “run meter” at all. I’d say 4 years of hard work to make this thing work is enough. If you just run and just use your phone to run Runmeter, *maybe* your mileage will vary. Good luck. You’ve been warned.
  • Mileage is off Mar 24, 2018

    By disappointed_runner
    I have used and loved this app for YEARS and recently, my mileage is off for every run. The shorter run, I don’t really notice. For my recent half, it was over by 1/2 mile. It then impacts your average pace that it’s telling you in your ear which for this same race, it was off by 30 seconds - which is a lot. Today I ran 6.5 miles and again, it was off. So disappointing Bc it’s been my go to running app for so long :( I only gave it 3 stars bc of how long I’ve been using it.
  • Run meter Jul 3, 2019

    By #1 RoadRunner-
    Works great, keeps track of everything. It was connected to face book so when you are running and someone sees you on Facebook, they could make a comment and you could hear the comment while you were running and your friends could see where you were on the run. That doesn’t work anymore. Not sure how to get around it. Probably for safety reasons, but that goes both ways.
  • No standalone watch app Oct 15, 2019

    By wlh2
    This was the best for me past 5 years and well worth the premium subscription. I’ve stopped using it, unfortunately, and didn’t renew, due to the poor watch app that requires a phone to be carried along. 5 star app if you run with phone, zero star app if you want to use just Apple watch.
  • Requires You to Carry Your Phone May 27, 2019

    By MarthaJaneB
    Despite cellular and other capabilities of the Apple Watch, this app requires you to have your phone with you. I bought the app thinking it was standalone with the Watch...so beware before buying. Great app if you have your phone.
  • Useless without Elite Upgrade Mar 25, 2018

    By Scott
    I've been a runmeter user since 2013 or earlier. I upgraded to Elite in 2014 when it was a reasonable $ 4.99. Then, in 2017 I STILL upgraded to Elite when the priced doubled to $9.99. It's actually a great app, but without the Elite upgrade, it's pretty useless (to me, anyway). Here's why. I went for my first outside run in 2018 and didn't notice my Elite upgrade expired last week. I spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out what was wrong with my heart rate chest strap. It turns out you need ELITE to measure your heart rate. You're kidding right..? Nope. How about just measure your steps..? Still need Elite. I didn't take the time to detail everything you lose without ELITE but for me, if a running app can't track my heart rate or at least steps, I'll just switch back to my fitness band or use a HR watch with my chest strap.
  • Inaccurate to a fault May 30, 2018

    By Mpschmitt
    I don’t know why no one else has mentioned this yet, but the pace measurements are all over the map (literally and figuratively) in this app. I’ve been using this for a while and I’ve observed the following behaviors on a number of occasions: 1. It often stalls out and stops registering any change in time or distance 2. When it is working it often reports inaccurate information. For example, on a slight downgrade of a hill it reported that I was running a 5:30 pace, then on an equally slight upgrade it reported I was running a 10:00 pace. My pace was actually about the same on both hills. I’m not that fast, and I’m not that slow. At one point during my run it reported that my pace was 0:00 for about a quarter of a mile, at which point I turned it off and uninstalled it.

  • Meh-support nonexistent Mar 19, 2019

    By ReneeRoxie
    Update: I have tried twice to contact support and the emails have bounced back. Very frustrating. It has a ton of features that it’s impossible to know them all and a bit complicated to figure out. One of the biggest features that I liked no longer works. It used to post to Facebook when I was on a run and then read me all the likes and comments during the run. This helped get me through half marathon training and my first race in 2017. Now, I’m 2019, I’m training again and it no longer works. Might have to go find some other app.
  • Keeps Crashing Apr 7, 2020

    By runningcrash
    Why does the app keep crashing in the middle of my runs? It’s updated, and I’ve started closing down all other windows to no avail. It is very frustrating trying to map and time a run when it crashes every half mile and stops. This used to be a wonderful way to track my runs-now it’s just frustrating. Yes I’ve emailed support.
  • GPS won't track after update Jul 25, 2017

    By Bald is Beautiful
    The app has worked well in the past but I updated the app and now it won't track my runs with GPS. The timer runs but nothing else works. The app says I have full GPS coverage but it won't track. I've tried several times today.
  • Poor Apple Watch support Apr 11, 2019

    By thomatically
    Great app for tracking progress, staying motivated and the training routines are a nice addition. Useless if you want to go running without your phone. The developer will not invest in standalone Apple Watch support. If you want to go running without your phone, find another app.
  • Was 5 now 2 Apr 26, 2020

    By chisoxfans
    I’ve been a premium customer for years and really love the app but they are tone deaf to AppleWatch stand alone functionality. Sure you can use Apple Workout App and then import it but why? Get the stand alone watch functionality or become obsolete.
  • DO NOT UPDATE! Jan 22, 2019

    By Denalon
    This app used to have a selection to post various work out details to Facebook and hear comments read aloud. It was silly but fun. It no longer does that. = Less fun. If you update, you lose “free” features you have now. DON’T DO IT!
  • Watch App Stuck in Map Mode May 5, 2019

    By a fortiori
    Excellent app usually. I’ve used it for 6 years. Now the watch app is stuck in a map mode without stop start controls. I’ve reinstalled to no effect.

    By Dylan Forga
    I run in an area where google maps and my hunting apps have no problem tracking me via GPS. Runmeter however is basically just a stop watch because it says my GPS signal is so poor. I was trying the free version, maybe that $9.99 a month they keep shoving down my throat for the premium version would somehow boost the signal. I can guarantee I'll never find out.

    Stops Tracking intermittently. I went with this program after seeing a friend use it on a walk. I thought the output it created was nicer that what i was using. However, the program i used worked flawlessly and this one kept dropping position so the data us obviously worthless. She was using a iPhone and myself an Android. I will probably ask for a refund.
  • Downgraded to 1 star May 20, 2020

    By Duecel
    I still love this app on the iPhone for the customizations but hate that it’s still not stand alone on the watch. It also, for whatever reason, has a problem with consistency on connectivity with the iPhone. I have my iPhone in my arm band on my left side and the watch on my right wrist and I get the no connectivity symbol often when running. Sometimes it just stops working completely with the app. Got to get with the program on stand alone with the watch. Until then I’m switching to Runkeeper who actually has a stand alone app for the watch. Also, the notifications on the Apple Watch don’t work. It doesn’t even announce start or stop but the have them there available. Stupid. Cancelled my subscription.
  • Watch App That Wont Work With Out The Phone Along For The Ride. Nov 3, 2017

    By Weeezzzzy24
    I had high hopes for this App as I have used a version of it various times through the years. That being said I got this App and upgraded to the elite. I thought it was going to be great until I went on my first run and was dumbfounded as to why my stats would not appear on my watch. I then quickly realized that like before in the past you had to find some way to lug your phone around with you to make this App work. Needless to say I was very disappointed. What is the point of making this App for the Apple Watch if it can't work independently??? Can the developers please get on untethering this App because it has some super legit features I just don't want to carry my phone.

    GPS tracking is not accurate. I've a Mate 20 Pro, and the free Google Fit app tracks perfectly while this paid app tracks the same route, but about 10 meters off to the left. Pls work on your tracking. One star because I've used the iOS version and it was perfect.

    Paid version may be ok, but free version is very basic. There's no way to test sensors unless you pay subscription fee.
  • Flakey with iwatch Nov 19, 2017

    By Assfghjttu
    You will have to have some paitence to make it work with iwatch. There are sequence of operation issues. I had to uninstall three times before I got it to work and not crash my watch I have been using elite for over a year now. I have had my Iwatch replaced three times for various issues such as failed touch screen. If you want an accurate heart rate monitor look somewhere else. If you want something that every once in awhile tells you An accurate heart rate after pushing a bunch of buttons and resetting things for the first couple of miles , then this is your device!

  • If you're looking for a watch app, look elsewhere Apr 11, 2019

    By The.Big.O
    Nowhere in the description does this app explain that it is so severely restricted that you can't test even the most basic functions. Until you purchase the full app, you get nag screens for nearly all of the icons you touch. If you attempt to open the app on your watch, it just tells you to go to your phone. With so many fitness apps in the market, I'm not willing to spend ten bucks to find out what the issues are for each. It's too bad, this looked promising. Be honest in your description or give a real test capability!
  • Outdated watch options Sep 13, 2018

    By fbicking
    Have used all three apps for over 6 years so have enjoyed what they offer. I have never minded the yearly fee for the three apps. I figure a fee gets you continued development. That said hear we are with the Apple Watch 4 coming in a week and still no stand alone support for the watch. As phones have gotten bigger I have been wanting to leave it home. At this point if they do not announce stand alone support at least coming by December I will spend December testing other apps and move on for the first time in over 6 years.
