Custom Running Intervals

As a runner, I’ve had challenges finding a running timer that can manage my more involved interval combinations. Custom Running Intervals allows you to build variable activities with repeatable blocks of intervals. Intervals can be by time or by distance with 3 intensities - walk, steady, and fast. You can repeat your intervals a specific or indefinite number of times, for a defined amount of time, or for a given distance. With an upgrade, you can create as many combinations of repeatable sets in the variations you choose.

Once you’ve configured your activities, the app will guide you through your intervals with voice commands, electronic tones, or both as chosen in your preferences/settings. If you choose the voice setting, you’ll hear the intensity for your next interval, and how long (time or distance). You can pause the running timer and restart, or stop at any time. If you have more than one repeatable block of intervals, you can also choose to stop a block and skip to the next during your run. When finished, you’ll also see your results by interval type or distance segment. Additionally, your results will include your distance, time, and pace for the repeat block itself if the block was for an amount of time or distance (e.g. 5 minutes, 1 mile).

Activities and results are stored on the phone and in iCloud. If the application is uninstalled, all data (activity configurations and results) will be restored from iCloud when the app is reinstalled. Also, the same data will load to other devices shared by the same iCloud account. Results can be exported in GPX format for import into other tracker apps if the premium upgrade is purchased.

1. Configurable intervals - distance (miles, kilometers), time (hours, minutes, seconds)
2. Configurable repeat blocks of intervals - # of times (or until stopped), distance, time
3. Clone activities (use an existing activity - repeats and intervals - as a basis to create a similar activity
4. Apple Watch monitoring and control (iPhone app must be started)
5. Audio cues by voice, tone, or both (in Settings)
6. Settings for default distance type (miles, kilometers)
7. Pause, Resume, or Stop an activity
8. View current elapsed time, distance, interval progress, overall pace
9. End an in-progress repeat block (and proceed to the next)
10. Results by interval and repeat block, as well as default distance unit (each mile or kilometer)
11. Results (including time, distance, and pace) available immediately after run
12. Map view to verify GPS location prior to starting run
13. Map view of running route in results
14. Helpful on-screen guide when creating first activity and configuring

Apple Watch
If you have an Apple Watch, you can also start, pause, and stop an activity in progress from the watch. NOTE: the Apple Watch app (included with your iPhone download) communicates with the iPhone app, so the app must be started on both the watch and phone to use the watch app.

Apple Watch Features:
1. View existing activity configurations
2. Start an activity (if iPhone app is started)
3. Pause, Resume, or Stop an activity
4. View current elapsed time, distance, interval progress, overall pace
5. End an in-progress repeat block (and proceed to the next)

Available Premium Features (In App Purchase)
If you like the basic features of the app, you can choose to upgrade within the app for some additional premium features:
1. Configure an activity with multiple repeat blocks (standard version allows one repeat block)
2. Compare results by reviewing the history of any activity type including the interval detail. The activity history will include any runs recorded even prior to the upgrade.
3. Export your results (current or history) in the GPX format for importing your GPS data into your favorite tracker that supports GPX.
