Why cant I listen to my Spotify music playlist without it being on repeat! FIXTHIS! 2/5
Update broke this app 1/5
After newest update NRC app no longer syncs with Apple Watch 4.
This app is horrible! I just ran 4.5 miles and wasn’t able to pause the run on my Apple Watch! After several attempts I finally paused it losing at least 20 seconds or more being added to my time. Then I saved it received the congrats from Kevin Heart on how awesome I was! Only to go to my phone and no Run was ever recorded! This is terrible and it’s the only app that you can use with the Apple Watch that you don’t have to bring your phone with! It’s horrible ! All that running and no way to see it! Disgusted wit this app!
Latest update 1/5
By Tom in Phienix
Since the update a week ago my Apple Watch stopped talking to the Nike Run app on my phone and I have tried everything including deleting the app and reinstalling it. Very frustrating as I have used the Nike Run app for a long time. Will start looking for alternatives after this update.
Love it! 4/5
I’m loving this app so far!!! I’ve started doing the “My Coach” section. The only thing I’m disliking is whenever I’m doing a speed run. The app doesn’t tell you when you’ve hit the distance and when to rest. I have to constantly look at my phone to stop where I’m suppose to and get my “rest” in.
Otherwise, great App!!
Great resource 4/5
This is such a great app, it has encouraged me to start running. The only comments are that sometimes starting the run on the iPhone fails to start the run on the watch. It’s kind of finicky. I have to tap my watch awake and while awake, start the run on my phone..and that doesn’t always work. When it doesn’t work, sometimes apple activity will auto detect that you are running, but then you don’t get the watch face associated with NRC. It would also be nice if you could save guided runs in a favorites tab.
Awful On Watch 3/5
Love the app, but if you run it on your watch alone it tends to stop mid-run or just not record a run at all. Has happened to me on different Apple watches, so it must be an app glitch. If you’re picky, you’re going to need your phone with you on runs.
This is awesome!!!! 5/5
I never thought I would enjoy running but I’m doing it! It’s really helped at a very tough time for me because of my mom dealing with cancer. It’s been a way to help relieve stress and get the frustration out. Thank you Nike for creating such an amazing experience that has helped me.
fine, but doesn’t really work with apple watch 3/5
By Mot Lau
it works similarly to other running apps. and like other running apps, it never syncs during runs with my apple watch.
Not a fan 1/5
Starts new run in the middle of current run.
Very slow announcements of time/distance/pace etc.
Excellent except for music 3/5
I like everything about this app except I can't properly sync Spotify. Whenever I try to play music through Spotify, it either loops one song over and over again or doesn't play music at all. Having easy access to my music is very important to me when I run so I wish that this issue wouldn't exist.
Does not sync with Spotify 1/5
Does not sync with you Spotify Playlist.
Good but flawed 3/5
This would be the best running app ever if it didn’t crash at the end of every run, resulting in loss of the whole recorded workout.
Calories and exercise time are still counted by the watch, so that’s something.
Slow response time 2/5
1) The app features are great. My only issue is with how slow it runs. Moving thru menus isn’t as responsive as other apps. Also I use the NRC on Apple Watch for my run and my activity/history usually pushes to the iPhone app 24hrs later. This should happen in the cloud within minutes. 2) Stopping NRC on Apple Watch can take more than a simple touch. Select Pause workout and sometimes a minute before the Stop button appears. Push Stop and response is iffy.
Apple Watch 4
Will lose your data, if using Apple Watch 2/5
I’ll first say that I like the app itself, especially the guided runs. But, for years it seems the app on your phone has failed to sync properly with Apple Watch. When I’ve gone for a run with my watch alone, tracking the run with NRC on the watch, it never syncs back to the data in the app on my phone and then eventually my phone overwrites the data on my watch... all those runs lost. Incredibly frustrating. Seems like a simple issue that Apple and Nike would be more than capable of fixing quickly.
Does not work for treadmill 1/5
I live in a very cold climate, I got an Apple Watch so that I could train for a half marathon. You cannot do coached runs on the watch. This means you also cannot do benchmark runs inside because you’re phone (unsurprisingly) will say you’ve gone absolutely nowhere. This means your plan will never update, you’ll be stuck with it asking you to run a 12 min mile and is useless. Cool.
Getting worse with each update 2/5
I have logged over 12,000 miles with this app. It used to be excellent, but has gotten worse and worse with each recent update. The most recent update has made it so my Apple Watch won’t share the run with the app, making it so I have to manually input each and every run. Very frustrating. Also, the app crashes on longer runs. I will give Nike a little bit of time to fix these issues, but I’m getting close to switching to Garmin.
Marketed for AW series 2, but... 1/5
...The app crashes on Apple Watch series 2. The app and even the watch were branded to work together but they just don’t!
I’ve given up on this every working right on Watch. Now I just use the Apple Workout app for tracking runs. I use the NRC app on my phone to manually enter runs for keeping records on shoe mileage.
Disappointing for sure
Best running app 5/5
By Apple lover 110789
Use this for long and short distances, works extremely well on Apple Watch
Not accurate on longer runs 3/5
I have been using NRC for the past 2 years and loved it. I have used it on both my Apple Watch 4 (cell and GPS) and the iPhone 8. Everything was great for outdoor runs and although it was inaccurate on the treadmill, that didn’t bother me too much as those runs were usually short. The problem I have now is for runs over 10 miles it does not track accurately. The app will stop tracking and restart the run when I lift the watch. The weird thing is that it does not start a new run but will continue from whatever distance it decided to stop at. This is a big pain when trying to get accurate splits and pace while training. I can tell you that if you are a serious runner who wants in depth metrics, go with a garmin and their app. I have buddy who uses the Fenix 3 and the stats and data he gets back post run are amazing. I will be switching to a forerunner soon.
Love the app 5/5
But please add a feature to easily find and delete guided run downloads. Thanks.
Major music issues 2/5
By Mickey Hands
I have been using this app for years but within the past few days I have been having all kinds of trouble getting my music to play through the app. It will no longer allow me to select a playlist through Spotify premium, when I gave up and selected an artist instead, it kept playing one single song over and over, and when I gave up on that and selected Apple Music, nothing played at all. I ran in silence. I am using an iPhone 8.
So long, Nike 1/5
I loved Nike Run. I had 1367 miles on it and was hoping to hit 1500. But. It’s been crashing about every 3rd run. I see many other people complaining about the same issue and Nike’s lack of response. The name Nike can only carry you so far. I’m using Strava now and liking it more each use. Nike, I’ll miss you but you aren’t worth the frustration.
Motion and fitness is not an option to turn on 1/5
It wants me to turn on motion and fitness so it kicks me to a settings menu where THAT IS NOT AN OPTION. So I google Around and find out where that option is located in settings. But it’s either on or off for the entire phone. I have it turned on so whats the issue? Guess I can’t use your broken app.
Nike Run App. 5/5
By Blake Mosley
I love it. It’s extremely accurate and it doesn’t lag or skip a step. It helps keep my motivation high.
This is it! 5/5
By Rebekah Jansen
THANK YOU!! This is exactly what I never even knew I was missing! I wanted to fall back in love with running (we broke-up a long time ago) so I set a goal to run a 1/2 marathon with my sister-in-law. I’m “in shape” ...but not “running shape” & I was having the absolute hardest time finding my motivation to start training again. I just couldn’t connect with my body.. my strides were heavy, my head was heavy, my heart was heavy & every run was torture. Then my sister-in-law introduced me to NRC & my running world has never been the same! The coaching & perfect playlists are exactly what I needed to help me center my energy and focus on my run. The joy is back! I’m thankful :)
Love it but.... 2/5
I love this app and have been using it for awhile but now am having all sorts of issues playing my music through the app and also syncing it through Facebook to get cheers. Big disappointment
Inaccurate recording of time and distance is consistent for my treadmill runs
Tracked time not miles 4/5
By Easton Higley
Today on my lovely run I was running and guess what the app tracked my time not my miles. I care more about the miles than the time so please fix this
Apple Watch 2 1/5
Won’t shut down after run has stopped. Very frustrating after running 11 miles.
I’m either leaving Nike or getting a new watch. Hate because I love my new Vomero’s.
Awesome little app 5/5
I’m very happy with this app, the achievements are fun! The ability to create challenges between my wife (or others) and myself is really fun too.
Apple Watch 2 Crashes 1/5
Have tried to restore Apple
watch and update app but it still crashes when I go to pause and finish work out. When using Bose wireless buds, playing music, and using the running app is when the app quits working correctly. Using those features together is why I bought the watch. Will be looking for a new running app.
Unreliable with Apple Watch 1/5
It started great, then it was having trouble syncing and then it finally stopped syncing my data! It is not that the NRC app in watch is not working, I can see the data in the Activity app and Health app. But the NRC app on watch and iPhone just wont talk to each other. This morning it completely lost my run data. Now to look for another app and I guess I won’t be updating to the new watch.
The perfect way to track progress 5/5
I can definitely say this app has changed my lifestyle. It motivates me to get outside everyday and it shows me how much stronger, faster, and more fit I become with each run. It has guided runs, and it enables you to play music right inside of the app. Running isn’t such a nightmare anymore.
This app is helpful!! 5/5
By Aye Yung Mike
I was running with this app and it told me my speed and how long I’ve lasted and how much distance I covered. Overall, if you’re looking for an app that will help you reach your goals... this one’s for you!!!!
Great app. Great challenges and goals. Love it
Awesome Potential 2/5
I bought my Apple Watch for the NRC app. Two huge flaws. 1. If I launch the app from my phone the guided runs are at a super low volume in my AirPods and it’s useless. I have to launch the app from my phone to hear it clearly. 2. Spotify playlists don’t work in NRC app. I click to select a playlist and the screen bounces. I need to open Spotify separately on my phone or watch to get a full playlist.
I’ve called Nike and Apple to help troubleshoot the app issue on my watch but neither seemed concerned or had workarounds. Hugely disappointing as I love the app wish it worked better.
App freezes on watch 1/5
I can only pause my runs. I can’t end it at all. I deleted from my watch. Please fix.
Want Facebook Cheers back 4/5
By Christian Newton
I understand most people may not want the app to post for them, but for those of us that do, give us the option to post it PAAAHLEEEESE!
Good job👍🏼, thank you ✌🏽😊
برنامج قوي 5/5
منذ 5 سنوات و انا استخدم هذا البرنامج ساعدني في عشق الركض و نزول الوزن و حب الرياضة فعناصر التحدي و التحفيز موجودة في هذا البرنامج
Good app, but annoying feedback requests 2/5
Just stop prompting for feedback ALL THE TIME.
We get it. You want positive feedback and your prompting is 100% geared to accept the positive feedback in much less intrusive way.
Good training plans, mileage tracking not accurate. 3/5
Tracks below actual mileage.
Crashes all the time 1/5
Used to love this app, but ditching it for something else. Constantly crashes, isn’t accurate, and pairing my Spotify to the app has become a mess.
Everyone writing reviews with complaints and gripes regarding the functionality of tHis app are being way to over dramatic. I have used this app forA long time now and have no complaints. The app works just fine, is well designed, and is easily the best running app out there. Also it is FREE and requires no subscription or like most other apps.
Nike Running App 4/5
Great app but needs improvement with connecting to Spotify premium
Not accurate in treadmill 3/5
The app is good if running outside, but if you’re on a treadmill it’s way off. For example, when the app says I have ran 3 miles, the treadmill says I’m at 3.42 miles. So just be aware that your times and distance will be off. I always have to change my run to correct distance.
Workout tracker 2/5
I want to give 5 stars and maybe it’s my error but unless I have my armband on its not tracking my workout. I wish there was a way to start the work out on my phone and have my watch track it. My headphones are plugged in to my phone and it rests on the treadmill so it doesn’t get logged with my info besides the time. Doing a guided run (which I love to do) is hard on my watch because I can’t hear it. Now I could be a total idiot and I’m just doing something wrong lol but that’s my only complaint!
Fix Apple Watch Sync 3/5
I love the app, but with the latest update the sync from my Apple Watch stopped working. Please fix!
