    In tonight's 5.1 app update it has lots of bug fixes and finally Apple Music integration with the weekly Nike Run Club playlists. These are great!

    Hopefully it performs well with all the Nike+ watches releasing on Friday!

    Here's the direct link to the Nike playlists: https://itunes.apple.com/us/curator/nike/id1151621339

    Nice - did the app run smoothly on the Watch, any bugs? So hoping they fixed them; the last version was virtually unusable...

    I noticed a few bugs in the app, such as splits not working, etc. But I'm sure quick updates will fix that. App loads faster than it did previously as well. As far as the watch is concerned, i was very impressed with the app on the watch during my run.
    The digital crown allows you to cycle through your data while you're running.

    Just got back from a lunchtime walk using the updated NRC app, which i broke into 2 sections, 1 with phone bluetooth off (so to use the watch GPS) and one with bluetooth on.
    Both walks were brisk at about 9:30 per km and each lasted slightly over 1km distance.

    For whatever reason, i cannot see these walks anywhere.
    When i saved the activity, it showed me a yellow squiggly line of what i presume to be the route taken (minus the maps data) and then gave me some boosting cheers.

    Any reason why i still cannot see these activities on the iphone NRC+ app? I'm wondering if its due to a server overload as people are downloading the update or something...

    I imagine they will release one or two updates by the weekend to squash the bugs.

    Wish it would add the Map to the iPhone Activity app the way the Workout app does.

    Is anyone getting a stopwatch lag? Watch sleeps with timer showing 1:00. You wake it 1:00 later and watch briefly shows 1:00 briefly before showing 2:00.

    exactly my sentiments. i'm looking to pick up the nike+ just after christmas, so they've got 2 months to sort that out, but otherwise i'll be using the stock workout app.

    did my first run with the updated app today... huge improvement over the prior version, actually adds to the running experience rather than hugely detracting from it as it did before. but I couldn't get my heart rate to show at all despite toggling through the other metrics using the digital crown. the function was definitely working as the Apple heart rate app was measuring it.

    I will say that I still can't understand why they can't have one screen on the Watch that shows (i) time, (ii) distance, and (iii) heart rate. current pace would be great too but i would take the first three.

    Yes, I ran with it today as well. Liked the clear voice updates every km.

    Never looked at the screen while running but HR data was definitely captured and I managed to export it to Strava

    What did you use to export it? Strava is where I have years worth of data and would like to be able to export it

    FWIW thanks to another thread I figured out the HR and other data can be seen on one screen by activating "Advanced Mode" by scrolling down on the start screen of the app on the watch.

    Hm went for quick run this morning after gym and then used Rungap to export to Runkeeper, but it didn't take the map only time, distance etc.

    Is this just for running or does it have other activities to select from?

    I used RunGap, from the AppStore. Free app to collect data into RunGap, then small sub via IAP to export.
    Don't like the IAP sub, would rather just buy the export function, but seems the dev wants to milk a regular income.

    This app is so unbelievably filled with bugs. I did a 12k run and yet again no map of where I ran. I tried using apple health to record another run- no problems this time. The Nike running app keeps restarting as well...

    The NRC app should have a map in the Nike app. However it doesn't add one to the Activity app. Also you mean you used the Workout app to record your run.

    If you didn't get a map in the Nike app are you using a S2 or carrying your iPhone with you?

    there are definitely issues with the GPS on the Apple Watch... I have been running the same route for years and suddenly my Apple Watch is telling me I am running it 30 seconds a mile slower than my iPhone told me; think I trust my iPhone GPS a lot more.

    does anyone know, assuming you run with both the iPhone and Series 2 Apple Watch but start your run on the NRC App on the iPhone, will the iPhone GPS override the Apple Watch GPS?

    I am using my S2 with my iPhone 7+ in airplane mode and Bluetooth switched off. About 50% of the time I get no track in the Nike app whatsoever.

    No such issues when using Apple health.

    RunGap exported the map to Strava, so not sure why it wouldn't go to Runkeeper

    Anyone experiencing lag with the data on the screen when it wakes?

    Anyone? Bueller?

    i'll repeat what @Julien said - you aren't using Apple Health, you're using the Workout app. The watch has no Health app.

    when you put your iphone in airplane mode, does the watch also enter airplane mode? airplane mode on the iphone disables the GPS, so logically if your watch is in airplane mode there'll be no access there. it could be that the workout app can override this where third parties can't.

    this was a huge issue with the prior version of the app, but since the update the lag has totally disappeared for me

    Yes - I noticed that on my long run Saturday ... it would display the same value from the last 'wake point' for a few seconds until catching up. Annoying.

    Also, in the NRC app I get no 'elevation gain' data, and also just get a pretty useless 'heart rate' as a single number. How is THAT helpful? Was hoping that a run-specific app & watch would actually give me more data.
