    loving my 42 Apple Watch Nike plus. But few issues/questions:

    1) on page 2 of the app on aw where you can schedule a time to run..... it says something like "run scheduled" - but nothing happens. No alert or warming? Anyone notice this?

    2) splits seen on activity app on iPhone. It not in Nike app. Annoying to have to look at two areas for complete run stats

    3) the amount of runs and distance per month (on watch page 3) takes hours to update after the run. Odd.


    4) no elevation? Bummer. Does built in apple fitness watch app have elevation?

    Anyway still easy and great to use coming from gear s2.

    Elevation is recorded if you have your phone with you since the watch gps doesn't provide elevation.
    I can't comment on the Nike Run app since I have never used it.

    Just a slight correction. The iPhone has a barometer that is used for elevation.;) GPS is used to get the basic starting elevation and the barometer for changes in altitude.

    I thought a barometer measures humidity?

    That would be a hygrometer.

    Barometer measures air pressure.

    +1. Night Spring your 8th grade science teacher would be proud! The internet continues to fascinate me. Misinformation thrives, at times.:)

    I think it was more like elementary school... :D

    I can kind of see why someone might mix it up with humidity, because low air pressure readings are one sign of approaching storms, so someone might hear something about storms and barometer readings and associate that with rain.
