heart rate connection & display is hit or miss. Provide 2/5
The Nike+ Run Club app is hit or miss even after re-following the connection process, closing and re-opening the app and repeating.
All my other apps with a heart rate functions have zero issues.
When offering only the basics functions (speed, distance, heart rate), Nike may want to be better than hit or miss.
Please also provide an email address (accessible within the app) for customer service. I would have rather emailed this tech problem than put it in a review.
Not what it used to be 2/5
I’ve been using Nike+ tracking since 2007 when it used a shoe pod tracker and a dongle on your iPod. Then came native iPhone integration so no dongle was needed anymore. Then came full GPS support with no pod needed! Then came the Nike+ watch which didn’t require a phone to run but still required a USB sync. Now it’s integration into the Apple Watch with no phone required to run!
Along the way, Nike has found a way to mess everything up, especially with the Apple Watch. The older Nike+ Watch would take minutes to find the GPS signal which sometimes meant standing around outside in the freezing cold before you could run! Now the Apple Watch lags just as badly! While waiting for the app to respond on the Apple Watch, it times out and I have to start all over again! Ending your run is just as bad as the Watch takes forever to acknowledge your tap! Music selection is non existent from the Watch app and you have to go to the music app to change your songs, all while on the run!
I suppose I can avoid all this by just taking my phone with me on the run but I hate wearing it on my arm or waist since it’s so big, and then moisture ends up getting on the phone from sweat.
Nike made a lot of people mad by removing the badges and achievements awhile back but finally put them back but it will take more than that to keep me interested in the app. I flirted with MapMyRun for a running season and I will go back to them now that they have worked out a few other bugs. I hear Strava is a great alternative too. Nike needs to quit breaking what isn’t broken.
Maybe this app is great on the phone, but it absolutely stinks on the Apple Watch.
Could be improved 3/5
Plenty of bugs in the system. 1) Locks out “podcasts” on the iphone 7. 2) “Speed runs” under “My coach” give you a 3-2-1 countoff and then nothing, so you have to hold your phone in your hand while you race down the asphalt, watching your phone to see when you complete 200 meters, and then watch the clock to see when your recovery is done. 3) No way to delete runs (I had a ‘run’ engaged while riding on the bullet train so it registered me doing a 20-second kilometer). 4) Guided runs need a little more guidance in “how to run” (e.g. stay relaxed, alignment and form, breathing, reducing shoulder or hand tension, watch the shoulder girdle, etc.) and less chatter with guests. 5) Difficulty level choices in the NTC workout, especially yoga. 6) The layout is not especially user-friendly. Takes a long time to figure out how to navigate through the app, which is a pain when all you want to do is hit the trail. Too much screen real estate is given to pictures of people running and not enough instruction or links for “next” move. I’m always “going back” through the feed to find what I want.
Keeps crashing 1/5
By Brittany from Sacramento
Nike, please fix this. Crashes 2-3 times during a run. Doesn’t match my Apple Watch and logs multiple runs in my health app. Super annoyed and sad.
By ed on the hill
The app gets worse with each update no longer tracks run course only reason I keep using is my several years of accumulated miles
By 4 things
I gave this an one star because someone mentioned how good this app is. So I downloaded it. I clicked sign up and filled in my information. Then it won’t let me put in my birthday. I kept refreshing the app but nothing is working.
Not a fan of the latest updates 2/5
By Nikki Pepp
New updates have a nice aesthetic but are not user friendly -- ive been using Nike running for over 4 years ~~ but now may be switching to another app because this one is pretty finicky now
Nike Athlete 5/5
This keeps me on track and allows me to stay motivated because I see my progression. Thank you Nike!
Made the switch. 5/5
I had only 5,000 miles logged with Runkeeper and I have experimented this app after hearing about it from so many running friends. There is simply no comparison. If you’re an avid runner or just a beginner, there is no better app out there.
Awesome App 4/5
I’ve had this app since 2015 and I think it’s great. Keep 🏃!!
Keep crushing 1/5
I don’t know whether is the IOS update causing the problem or not
Great App - but when It works! 2/5
By Atlantian PR
Great app its great to have when it works. App crashes while trying to edit Camera Roll picture with running data and then try to upload it to social media.
Nike Run for walking 3/5
By Christopher Cooper
I really like this app but don’t understand why it take so long to start up in the house. I use it for mostly walking in my house. Also having issues synching with Fit-Bit.
¡Mente sana en cuerpo sano! 5/5
Gracias a Nike he empezado a recuperar mi salud. ✍🏻🙋🏻♀️
Guided Runs Crash iPhoneX 1/5
By Matthew Keefer
Pretty bad experience the past few times I have tried running with one of your headspace guided runs, it takes a minute to load, then proceeds to not track miles or distance, then crashes, and then I have had to delete the app and reinstall to get back to home screen. Please spend some time trying to reproduce this and put a bug fix out.
Best running app! 5/5
I’ve been using the Nike+ run app for several years now. I really enjoy it simplicity and how they have have now integrated into the Apple Watch. I recommend it to any one who is a basic runner.
Steaming pile of horse crap 1/5
If you think the iPhone app is slow and laggy, then the watch app might seem so slow as to actually move backwards. If I didn’t like the running plans, I would chuck this. Awful. Miserable app
Doesn’t work 2/5
So I got an Apple Watch Nike edition and tried to set up my Nike Run Club app but whenever I try to sign in I fill in all the information, but when I click on “date of birth” it doesn’t pull up a keyboard or anything to allow me to type. I assume this isn’t a problem that is happening to everybody, but I would like it to be fixed either way.
Guided Runs 4/5
The “ don’t want to run run” is brilliant!
Questionable design decisions 3/5
By Fluffy Zaleski
Nike Run Club is one of the best apps, but it’s not good for sharing or saving running routes. Still better than Strava, tho.
Excelente, mas com um bug com o Spotfy 5/5
O aplicativo é muito bom! Nada a reclamar em relação ao acompanhamento das corridas. O único problema dele é que a integração com o Spotfy para de funcionar no meio da corrida (com frequencia), e para quem não abre mão de correr ouvindo música isso é um problema. Espero que as próximas atualizações corrija isso.
Great App, Needs 1 Adjustment 4/5
By Scooda Dooda
Use this app for every run, but for some reason, my early morning runs are dated as the night before. Please fix. Thanks.
Stop with the training schedules 1/5
Stop pushing retail in your workout app
Stop stop the social crap, it’s loading up the bottom taskbar with crapola 💩
Follow up review (map display fixed) 5/5
By Dustin Diaz
I was running into issues where my 3-5 mile runs were not being logged onto the map (I love seeing where I ran, including the splits). Glad to say it’s been working great now.
One suggestion (I also left on the NikeRun Twitter account)...
It would be awesome if I can adjust the “split alerts” to (also) speak out the “last” split.
Eg: “Time: 32 min. 30 sec. Dist 4 Mi. Avg Pace 8:07... your last mile was 7:22”
Other than that, keep up the great work
Great app 5/5
By Amber's feedback
Nrc is a great app to track your progress and stay motivated
Use it. 5/5
It's February 20th,2018. I've used the app on an iPhone 4S for the last 6 months. It's changed and helped me in so many ways... Imagine when I update.
Not compatible with Spotify 3/5
By Tommy Shanahan
Great app for running and stats, but syncing it with Spotify never works, and using both apps simultaneously leads to volume issues — Nike announcements permanently lower music volume (even after the announcement has ended), and then you have to restart your Spotify app.
Too bad. Would be great if it worked.
No Bluetooth HRM support 4/5
HRM doesn’t work
My Virtual Running Coach 5/5
Keeps me moving, one foot in front of the other, with the cues I need to give me the fire right when I NEED IT !
Great app 5/5
Let’s you post your mileage on social media and you see your progress
Another update, another failure 1/5
Continues to crash on iPhone 6, iOS 11.2.5. I do not belive for one second that this app is still rated a 4.
I enjoy it
Constantly Crashes 1/5
I start a run and stick in my pocket only to pull it out later to realize it had crashed and didn't track my workout. Otherwise the app has great features and potential but seems I'll have to use a backup tracker so I can still log my progress.
Freezes my $400 Nike+ Apple Watch 1/5
I'm a longtime, fiercely loyal Nike+ user. I’ve logged 27,000 Nike+ miles since 2006. So I eagerly bought the Nike+ Apple Watch. This app doesn't work on the Watch. It routinely crashes on anything longer than a 5-mile run. Tried the new version released today, and it still malfunctions. Very frustrating.
Weight resets every time, so annoying 2/5
This has never happened before but every time you quit the app and restart it, the weight and height that you had set up for the app previously resets, so each time it says I’m 392 pounds and calibrates my calories burned according to that if I forget to reset it before I start my run. I even downloaded the update but still happening. About to switch back to MyFitnessPal for my run tracking
Serious runners look elsewhere 3/5
So when I run, I have to bring my giant iPhone 6s (it’s huge) and wear an even bigger belt to hold it. No ones fault but my own, but I don’t have the luxury of a smart watch. I’ve been using Nike+ since it first came out, so I don’t want to ditch all of my miles and info. Anyway! If I try to set the phone down in a loose cup holder in my jogging stroller, it immediately goes “PAUSING WORKOUT” and I can’t get it to work.
I understand that people could work the system, if you will, and just set it somewhere and log phantom miles, but that has to be on the runner. That person can live with being a lazy bum recording miles they never ran, but when I’m using my data with GPS, running at an 11:00 pace with a double stroller, give me a little break: can there be a stroller setting of some kind? I know I’m not the only stroller runner out there!
By Cafés have
I love the app. However your latest update causes my Apple watch to disconnect constantly and then takes several attempts to reconnect.
The same issue 1/5
I have wrote two reviews and sent a message on Twitter about the “new achievements” not going away after they have been viewed. Even after the updates this issue still happens.
Super inaccurate 2/5
When running on a military installation, it does not stick true to the distance, it recorded my 3 mile run as a 2 mile run.
No longer tracking my distance 1/5
By Island Girl 15
With this new update the app is no longer tracking my distance or route. Please fix ASAP or I’m going to have to find a new app. I’ve been a user for years but this is super annoying.
Nike Run App 1/5
By Muscles 72
This used to be a really good app. I like the old system better, ever since they started with this new one I lost half of my achievements. The storm proof, sneaker head, beach bum, and many others. Are used to like to go on to my friends profile so I can see their fastest run longest run etc., it doesn’t allow you to do that anymore. This used to be a very good app. I’m really considering switching to another.
What happened to this? 1/5
I used to use this app all the time, the old logo one. My only complaint is that it doesn’t gps my whole route. Three days ago it tracked half my route, yesterday and today about 3/4 my route. I just go out for 30 minutes but when I want to look at my data afterwards, it tracks time but not all my miles cause of the missing route.
Developers tell me to delete the app and log back in but today proved that it doesn’t work.
Apple Watch fails!! 1/5
By Daddy Ohh
I tried this new update several times on Apple Watch series 2, and each time it just went through a couple screens with ‘loading’ type circles, then crashed-back to watch face. Finally gave up and used apples fitness/workout app.
Went for a run and just after the 4 mike Mark it froze and crashed. Luckily, the app came back to life, if not only for my persistence and 7-10 attempts, and I was able to get the run completed. But, there was extra time and slower average time, since I was busy screwing around with the app while it was still crash-running. This has been an ongoing problem, so I will no longer use the app.
I love it 5/5
I love this app it’s been helpful for me to stay in shape and get fitter
I have the Apple Watch 3 and the NRC app is hit and miss for me. Some days it tracks my runs just fine but most days it is very inaccurate.
Love the app. I love being able to look at my splits and it keeps track of my records. Always fun to see improvement.
Could use some improvement. 2/5
Would like to see all running shoes except just Nike. I would like to see customizable running plans. Something like run 1.5 miles then some 2 minutes repeats at a certain pace then a cool down. This will help not having to keep looking at the watch to see what pace I am running.
Just remember to press stop when you are all the way done it will continue to count your exhausted stroll as your pace other wise
Inspiration + Accountability 5/5
Nike Run App allows me to keep track and keep myself accountable. It allows you the opportunity to connect with other runners and communities.
