Whether you are an experienced coach training for the race, or just starting your jog ride,
($ 345 at the Amazon Marketplace) can help you get there.
Although there is no particular running watch, Apple Watch is packed with features that help you log miles and keep you motivated while driving. You just need to know how to find them.
Here are some tips to make Apple Watch a better running buddy.
Update your stats
First thing first: Make sure Apple Watch knows who you are. This means gender, weight, height, age – basically all indicators like the clock must accurately measure distance and calories burned.
You may have set this up in the health program when you first set up Apple Watch, but if you do not have it or your weight has changed since then, make sure your profile has all the correct information.
Go to the Watch app on your phone and select the My Watch tab at the bottom, go to Health and press Edit in the upper right to make the changes.
Calibrate the Clock
Another important part of the "Getting To Know" phase isand steps to get a more accurate distance when leaving the phone behind or GPS is not reliable.
If you have never done this before, you can only start with a clean slate. In the Watch app on your phone, go to the My Clock tab and click Privacy and select Reset training calibration data.
To calibrate, Apple recommends that you get rid of a jog in a flat open area where you get a good reception. Serie 1 users must bring a phone together on this first race. Then you have to start an outdoor run or go to the exercise program on Apple Watch, and do it for at least 20 minutes. If you do not have 20 minutes to save, you can also do this in 5- or 10-minute intervals, just know that you must reach a total of 20 minutes to accurately calibrate.
After signing in the first 20 minutes, you can dive the phone and resume your regular routes. The clock will continue to learn about your step and calibrate over time.
Tighten the band
Once you've reached the distance and find out, make sure you & # 39; to get accurate reading of the heart rate. Apple Watch uses heart rate (along with other calculations) to calculate burned calories, and the gadget can be used to stay in control during training or during the course. However, the heart rate sensor must be in direct contact with your skin for accurate reading, which means that you need to tighten the band before jogging to ensure that Apple Watch stays in place when you swing your sweat arm upside down. Just do not overdo it and cut the circulation to your hand – and loose it again when you're done.
It is also designed to work best on top of your wrist so it's actually counterproductive to put the sensor on the bottom of your wrist (where you usually take the pulse). I used it on the wrong side for several months before I finally figured out this, so save some driving time and learn from my mistake. To get even more accurate with your reading, you can.
Customize Your Calculations for Success
On outdoor driving, Apple Watch can hold tabs with eight different metrics, ranging from average pace to height increase, but that does not mean you have to see all the information on the screen while driving. Find out the numbers that make you pump, and then customize the fitness interface from the Watch app on your phone.
Scroll down to the training option on the My Time tab on
($ 1000 on Cricket Wireless) and when you're in, click Training View at the top. Then select the Outdoor (or Indoor) option, click Edit in the upper right and add, delete, or rearrange as needed. You can only view five calculations at a time.
You can also set goals before each race from the Apple Watch training program. Click the three points next to the type of race you choose and set your goals based on distance, calories or time.
Enable auto pause
This feature is important for surviving city runs without having to adjust the clock at each stoplight. You can enable Auto Pause from the Watch app from your phone or directly on the Apple Watch device, and select.
At the time, go to Settings / General / Exercise, and change auto pause. If you are on the Watch app on iPhone, select the My Watch tab, Workout, and toggle Running Auto tab. This works for outdoor running and treadmill, so stoplight or water pause will not reduce your time and pace during a race.
Maximize Battery Life
As you've probably learned the hard way, driving is not good at battery life. And if you're a night hunter like me, you can find yourself running on the plot. Or worse, the battery can die before you finish your drive – that is, the drive does not appear in the activity log!
If you drive dangerously low on juice, try turning on power save mode before starting. This is different from the Power Reserve option you get when you are 10 percent, which basically turns off all other functions than time. Power save mode is a pre-emptive step that will help extend battery life while retaining most of the basic tracking features.
To enable power saver mode from Apple Watch, go to Settings / General / Exercise and switch the Power Saver Mode option. You can also do this from the Watch app on iPhone and disable after you complete the run.
You can see a small variation in calories burned because this mode also turns off the heart rate sensor, but it will still give you an accurate reading of your drive.
5 will give even more running skills
Runners will also get a new set of tools in WatchOS 5 to revive training. The update expected to roll out in September will add the cadence (step per minute) and rolling slow pace (how fast you ran the previous mile) to the list of metrics to be traced eventually. It will also provide custom tempo alerts (via haptic feedback) when falling or rising over your target time.you might want to preview while waiting for the official WatchOS 5 update.
