3. Connect to wearable sensors

RunSocial on Apple devices can also connect to wearable tracking sensors that send "RSC" run data using Bluetooth Smart (also known as Bluetooth Low Energy or BLE).

RSC is a Bluetooth standard for "Running Speed and Cadence" data. Examples include Polar's Stride Sensor Bluetooth Smart ( and the MilestonePod ( which are both pod sensors you attach to your shoe.

4. Manual if you need it

For manual we don't track you. You set the speed. It's easy to use - once in the video, just swipe the screen. You can also tap the + / - buttons.

You can use your iPad screen

If your fitness machine console cannot support your iPad or your iPad tends to bounce around as you exercise, our unique PadGrip iPad holder can help.

However, if you are using your phone or just want a bigger image

RunSocial is designed for it. This means when you connect your Apple device to a TV screen, the screens are not just duplicated; the TV will display your video route and your device will become a control panel.

It's awesome - try it!

Ways to Connect to TV

  1. Connect via HDMI; you’ll need Apple’s HDMI adaptor.
  2. Connect via Apple TV. Please note that performance will depend on the WiFi router
    you use. We recommend Apple’s Airport Extreme.
