I use this on combination with strava and Apple to get a much deeper level of understanding, analysis and detail on my effort and hart rate and aerobic zones. Data is taken in from my device and from strava and then analyzed. I don’t use zones to measure my activity. The analysis is excellent and really useful to monitor my improvement and effort. I can see how much time I spend in each zone and where I put my effort. I have used this to stay in a specific zone to burn fat or improve endurance. I bought the premium which gives even more detail and stats on how I’ve performed. I’m very useful stuff and if you like our data this app is very good. Basically I haven’t seen any other mainstream app go to the lengths this one does. If you’re training for any sort of event or are trying to just get better in performance this gives you a great insight to how you’re doing.

I am a user of this app who had upgraded to Pro. I do HIIT training about 4-5 times a week, and often have to restart in the middle of the my workout for freezing up and not registering my heart rate correctly. Then recently, it stopped transferring data from my watch to the phone. After restarting both iWatch and iPhone, I tried to delete the app and re-install. It lost all of my data. I contacted customer service and they referred me to an online faqs page of what’s supposed to happen when one tries to delete the app (2 prompts are supposed to show up, the second allowing you to keep your health data). However the second prompt never showed up for me and the app deleted after the first prompt. I tried deleting again as a sanity check since I absolutely do not remember that second prompt, and again it deleted the app after the first prompt. Now my last 6 months of workout data is gone. I guess not the end of the world in the greater scheme of things, but still frustrating that the glitches in the app keeps it from working as it’s supposed to. Will be utilizing a different app, as this one is obviously not trustworthy. 2 stars because it’s great when it actually works.

The app is ok. I’d give it 3 stars because it freezes and twice randomly shut down in the middle of a run in the first week I used it. One star because I’m unhappy that it says it’s shareable (through family sharing) on the app page and I paid for the upgraded version. But any app that forces you to pay for the upgraded version through the app is not truly shareable (it will charge each individual in the family share account for the upgraded version through the app). Apple and the developers should be more forthcoming with this feature (ie all upgraded apps should be able to be purchased directly through the App Store and not in app purchases which won’t allow family sharing features). Really dishonest.

I hate the apple exercise app on the watch because it shows your heart rate but doesn’t tell you what zone you are in but this app’s watch app does and even alerts you when you change zones! I love it! I also love you can also, for the most part, edit the data. When I run on a treadmill it does a pretty good job estimating distance but it’s not accurate so I like for the most part it allows me to edit it. However sometimes it doesn’t. I also would like if I could delete activities. Because I use different apps for recording different activities but also use the zones watch app it duplicates my activity and I can’t delete it. Being able to delete activities would help and would warrant a five star!

The app works as advertised. I have actually worn this at Orange Theory and the results are similar on both devices, the OT Beat tracker and my apple watch. My only gripe is the mandatory vibrate at each zone change. As an IT guy by day, my watch vibrating is a reminder of another email or meeting I have to get to. When I workout, I put my watch in quiet mode so I cannot be interrupted. But it’s like a pavolvian response every time a zone changes to think a new work email has arrived. It may seem small, but when you’re doing cardio and you are constantly bouncing between zone 3 and 4, you’ll want to find a way to stop the vibrate. Seems like a simple fix / enhancement. I emailed the developer, no response. If they added that option, not only would the rating be higher, but I’d shell out for the paid version.
