    Hi all,

    Anyone know of a good Couch to 5k Running app for the Apple Watch S2? Most of them seem to want you to keep the phone with you. I'm looking for one which will utilise the Watch and let me leave the phone at home.

    Thanks,

    I don't think any 3rd party app is updated yet to take advantage of the gps in series 2. Might not be for a couple months. Until then you have to use the Apple workout app or take phone with you.

    Disappointing but sort of what I expected. Really didn't want to have to find away to take my 7 Plus out with me :(

    If your trail or road running I found it real easy to just hold my 7 plus, makes it quick and easy to skip songs and keep an eye on the timer that the couch to 5K uses for your training.

    Or just get running shorts as that should be no issue in holding the phone. Plus no risk of dropping it.
