Nike revealed its plans to rebrand its popular Nike+ Running app. The app’s update comes with a number of performance, feature, visual, and stability enhancements.
In addition to the rebrand, the app was redesigned visually, bringing faster access for users to such info like run time, distance, and location. Moreover, the update adds some personal post-run sharing options with friends, which are expected to increase the motivation of people to workout in the first place.
Nike pays a lot of attention to the Apple Watch integration of its Run Club app. The Cupertino company is planning to refresh the Watch lineup later this year with a built-in GPS, which is expected to allow users to go on runs without their devices and still track location.
Nike’s update also brings a number of new personalized coaching plans. “Whatever your goal, your Nike+ Coach has a plan for you. One that STARTS with your goals and fitness LEVEL, and ADAPTS as you progress,” the company says.
Here is the full changelog of the update:
