How does RunSocial track my speed?
RunSocial can track you in a number of ways. No special hardware is required although we do have hardware tracking solutions. Currently, there are three ways your speed can be adjusted in the app:
- Control your RunSocial speed manually swiping the video screen side to side.
- RunSocial has developed the TreadTracker, a unique treadmill sensor that accurately measures the speed of any treadmill. You just put it on the floor underneath the treadmill and the TreadTracker will measure and stream your speed in real time to the RunSocial app via Bluetooth. TreadTracker FAQ »
- RunSocial can connect directly via Bluetooth to a number of high quality manufacturers including Life Fitness (Discover and Track Connect consoles), Landice (all treadmills with Cardio or Executive consoles), Nautilus (T616, E616, T618 & E618 models) and Woodway (4Front). Life Fitness Track+ consoles can connect via the inbuilt connector.
Once connected, which you do from within the RunSocial app, you get real time speed data directly from the treadmill and, in some instances, RunSocial also controls the incline of the treadmill to ensure it matches inclines of the video route.
Can RunSocial control incline?
In settings RunSocial does have an incline option. Where RunSocial can connect to the treadmill as it does with Life Fitness and Landice, then RunSocial can control the incline to match the video. For other tracking solutions where we do not connect to the treadmill, we display the incline on the video screen so the runner can choose to manually adjust the treadmill incline to match.
How do I see it?
You can see it on your mobile device – the iPad screen looks great. If you want a bigger screen experience, the RunSocial app is specially built for it. See here for more info »
