Track your running sessions and improve your workouts

Join the quantify-self movement and smartify your workouts. It's easy with Runtastic.

Making the most of the motion sensors and GPS technology built in your smartphone, Runtastic tracks different parameters of your workout sessions and give you some insights to make you more efficient. Runtastic is your personal coach in these DIY times we are living.

It's really intuitive. Choose the activity you are going to practice (running is the default) and tap the green button to start tracking the workout. All the parameters are displayed in the tracking screen: duration, pace (min/km), distance, speed and calories burned. In addition, your route is mapped using Google Maps.

Those are the basics of Runtastic, but there's much more. You can select the workout type you are going to practice (basic, HIIT) or customize your own workout setting the distance, time, duration or calories goal. When you are done, you can add more detailed info to the workout: surface type, weather, temperature, how you felt and heart rate (requires a compatible Heart Rate Monitor device) and even hydration.

Sessions are stored in your history. You can check them any time and share through your social media to challenge your friends beat your records.

One of the most interesting features of Runtastic is the "Story Running" which are preset podcast you can listen to while running to get extra motivation. From settings you can enable/disable a bunch of additional options: voice feedback, powersong, heart rate zones... Most of them are only available in the Pro version of Runtastic.

Runtastic features an intuitive and user-friendly interface. It runs smoothly and it's pretty kind with your battery despite of the amount of built-in sensors it turns on during the session.

Only one catch worth to mention: You can share records through your social media but I'm missing a global leaderboard to compete against player from all around the world.

Regardless, Runtastic is one of the most intuitive and accurate workout tracker on the store.

    Extrem eingeschränkter Funktionsumfang und viel Werbung. Kostenlose Version In der Praxis nicht brauchbar. Bevorzuge Sportractive.

    After the recent update (May 27th) it does not pick up my heart rate monitor any more, was working fine yesterday.

    Used the app to measure the distances in the forest preserve trail. It was a perfect match to the information booths and mile markers. I love using this app. I don't have to worry about tracking time, distance or location and it plays my music as well! I LOVE IT!

    I haven't tried this one yet I've been using Ride and it's really but it sometimes sticks.
