TreadTracker is the most accurate treadmill tracking accessory you can buy.
It streams accurate, real-time speed data to your Apple device and works with any treadmill.
RunSocial is proud to directly connects to treadmills from Life Fitness, Nautilus, Landice, Star Trac and Woodway.
With bluetooth “On” in your Apple device, select "Treadmill connect" in the RunSocial app Speed Tracking menu. Then, if you are using any of the following treadmills, simply tap on the treadmill’s bluetooth signal to connect:
If you are using Life Fitness’ Discover series tap on "Connect with QR code" and point your device camera at the Life Fitness QR code (see video for demo). You can also connect with Life Fitness’ inbuilt connector on the Discover and Track+ consoles.
All models above provide direct speed connectivity.
For Life Fitness and Landice, RunSocial can also control the treadmill incline if the video route has incline data. You can turn this off.
RunSocial 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 (www.polar.com) and the MilestonePod (www.milestonepod.com) which are both pod sensors you attach to your shoe. For the MilestonePod, you need to update the Pod's firmware which is easy to do via Milestone's app after you have send an update request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.

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!
You can easily set up new run events for you and your friends (private & public).
They can join you from their treadmill using RunSocial or by running outside using RunSocial GPS. We also host some pretty cool public events including even iconic marathons.
To create an event, tap the event icon on the home screen. Create a title and select a route.Schedule a time and date for the event. You can create a public event for anyone to join, or a private session for you and your friends.
Invite your friends using Message, Mail or social media.
Sharing a run is a wonderful way to stay connected, especially if they are hundreds or thousands of miles away. So to help you persuade them to join you, we have this wonderful function where you can run against past runs of not just yourself but also your friends.
How it works: in My Runs select one of your past runs and press Add To My Next Run (or just “Add” for iPhone). That past run will now appear as a shadow avatar in your next video run so you can run against yourself. You can add as many past runs as you like, but they appear only in the next run, not repeatedly.
You can also share this feature with your friends by selecting a past run, tapping Share and following the steps (SMS, email, etc). If your friend has RunSocial they can tap and your run is immedaitely available to them under Other Runners of My Runs. They can then “Add” your run so it appears as a shadow avatar for them the next time they hit the treadmill. If they don't yet RunSocial, we’ll guide them through an easy sign up.
Search and install the RunSocial GPS app from Apple App Store or Google Play.
Once you’ve created an account and logged in you will be able to view two screens:
More on Live Leaderboard: If someone started running before you (wherever they are in the world), they will appear ahead of you on your RunSocial GPS leaderboard screen. This is because they got a head start, just like they would be ahead of if you were running on the same track but they started before you. If they are not too far ahead and you run faster to try to catch them up.
Runners on your leaderboard that are slower than you will have a red triangle icon and runners that are faster than you will have a green triangle icon.
If you speed up you will see some green triangles (faster than you) suddenly change to red (now slower than you).
You can create or sign up to a virtual run events in both RunSocial or RunSocial GPS. If an event is created in RunSocial, those in RunSocial GPS can also sign up. And everyone will see the same countdown clock once signed up.
Everyone Together: We also enable people running indoors to appear on the leaderboard of those running outdoors. Those running outdoors can appear as avatars in the videos of those running indoors.
Please note that GPS signal used for tracking does sometimes have drift so there can be temporary moments of distortion. Also, the live leaderboard function access a live game platform which may sometimes be blocked by office WIFIs (that allow internet but not live game access). It is therefore recommended you log into a run when on your 3G/4G network rather than WIFI.
