    Hi, i wanna run with my new AW2, but with no iPhone ;).
    Is the Fitness App the only choice?

    For now, the workout app is the only app on the watch that uses its internal GPS. I would expect the Nike app to be the next one to use local GPS. Then, Runkeeper, Strava, MapMyFitness, iSmoothRun, and the others should all have updated apps soon.

    Unless your just running around the track at some high school, carrying your iPhone with you is the safest thing you can do. I learned the hard way and never run without it now. Even using the iPhone for my music only uses 1% of the battery for an hour of music.

    The Pear App works with GPS, but has it's flaws.

    Did you get hurt or did you get robbed? Is that why you say carrying the iPhone is the safest thing?
