Newest update now restarts constantly. Force stop program and a little while later, it restarts again. Latest update is too glitchy to keep on my phone, messages don't work, miles are inaccurate, challenges gone and now it's killing my battery. Update: the above review was of a version downloaded mid Jan 2018. I've just downloaded the newest version (v2.13.2) and notice that challenges are back so will test and update my review after I've tested but for now my review stands with the Jan 2018 version.
The Coach part of it still has many glitches which makes me sad. After 5 weeks it's telling me my longest run is still only a 1.75 mile run in a half marathon training! Going to finish my training with this and then find training else where.
This was once a amazing ap by Nike. Especially when they had the foot pods for the shoe inserts. Run tracking was spot on, especially on indoor treadmill runs. Now after reading several reviews I see im not the only one with this issue. must be something wrong with the coding or program.
Coaching features are incredibly buggy. My getting started plan got off by a workout somehow, audio coaching didn't match what the run was supposed to be (time, distance, etc). Now I can't start a new plan, I just get a connection error every time.
I really like the app I just wish it would record my miles better. I really think it's the building causing interference but still.... Very aggravating when you've ran a mile and it says you only ran .29! 🙄🙄 But still I do enjoy using it
Coach function is BROKEN. Coached run doesn't align with audio! Very distracting. Simple just to ignore. Motivation aspect is half of what it should be. There is no way of resetting your best times. This often comes in handy if you are recovering from injury and you are having to set yourself new goals. This should be relatively easy to do by tagging previous times with a symbol so the database doesn't include them.
