Nice video. Thanks for sharing.
Nice video buddy
Thanks for that - looks great.
But it is an Apple Watch not an iwatch
I recently uploaded a series of 3 videos about the new Nike edition Apple Watch...
''How to" - Setting up the Watch for music and running without your iPhone
I really hope these videos answer some questions for you about the new watch and help you decide if its worth your money! If there is any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. I can take pictures of the Watch and help with any technical difficulties.
Very informative! Thanks for taking the time to post!
OP - Ok I understand the NCR app thing, but how important is calibration on s2 running 3.1 to track Activity(steps) accurately? And whats the best way to calibrate besides what apple says about the 20min walk and run. How many times? What if more than 20 mins? Same route or try different routes?
Steps do not require any calibration. Steps are a simple count. Calibration is in relation to your stride length and is used for determining distance covered (cadence [steps] x stride length = distance).
Your stride length needs at least 20 minutes of use to average out and make a calibration. Anytime after that you use your iPhone it will continue to dynamically calibrate to your current average stride length.
Running and walking must each be calibrated independently (minimum of a 20 minute walk and a 20 minute run).
OP, Are you running with that Red Beats headphone?
Thanks for the info.
One more thing, can i calibrate a 20 min outdoor walk and run more than once? As in, did a 20 outdoor walk and a run(separately) today, now again i plan to do it day after. Will this help in more accuracy or just 1 of each is enough?
You could do it a dozen times and let it keep refining its calibration. Not necessary to get too specific about it.
The stride length calibration matters for those of us who are on the older "Series 0" and new Series 1 watches since they don't have onboard GPS. Once calibrated, it's supposed to be better at gauging distance without using GPS.
For Series 2, which is what the Nike AW is, the GPS takes care of getting accurate distance for you.
Why would you need to calibrate an S2 Watch with an onboard GPS?
Edit: As BarracksSI pointed out, there is no reason to calibrate an S2.
For INDOOR running/walking.
Sorry, I never think about running and walking indoors.
We aren't allowed to correct people on that.
Good point. When I run indoors I use the mileage from the treadmill I am running on.
If you were walking in an indoor venue, the overall distance would be useful.
