Video Walkthrough

#1: Pinpoint past runs quickly with new beautiful & instantly identifiable mapping

New mapping ensures that you quickly find the activity you want to view.

#2: View months of training in a flash with new heatmap calendar view

The heatmap view of your calendar shows a month's worth of training variety in a single glance.

Larger dots indicate your more significant runs, as filtered by stress, time, and distance. And, multiple dots indicate multiple activities on a single day.

#3: Jump from profile to calendar to device management quicker with new tab-based navigation

New tab-based menu requires less taps to get around, compared to the previous pop-out menu.

#4: Favorite breakthrough workouts for future admiration

You can begin to tag your favorite workouts now. More filtering-based options are coming in the next Android release which will allow you to instantly find 'favorited' activities.
