As the title says. Anyone else having this issue? Am I over looking something?
Workout app calculates speed and distance from your step/stride length doesn't it? Gps just calibrates it?
I believe so. I had my phone with me as well running strava during the ride.
I went several miles and my distance shows 0 and my workout time shows that it was only 26 minutes when it was actually 40 minutes.
It worked for me, with all sorts running.
Preloaded strava on my phone and loaded up co-rider for navigation
Set workout for outdoor cycle open distance and started strava on the watch via glances and left this as my watch screen during ride.
Watch and Strava calculated same distance travelled, calorie discrepancy between the 2 apps was about 200 calories over 40 miles so not bad, workout used the watch HRM strava used its own algorithm without sensors.
so this works with GPS? the Nike+ app doesn't record were you ran! I like looking at my map just like the iPhone app! this really sucks if you can't do that!
Same issue with mine too!
Same issue here too. Currently on the phone to Apple Support
I hope they figure this out
Let us know what they say please.
After 5 minutes on hold whilst the Apple rep spoke to an "expert" the best they came up with was to unpair, then pair my watch again with my iPhone . I didn't do this but did try using the Workout app again on my bike, and this time it worked
Okay so I found the fix for this after calling Apple yesterday. You have to have motion calibration and distance on your iPhone . It's under settings-privacy-system services-toggle the motion calibration and distance switch.
WeatherRun app does
WeatherRun app shows distance, speed and duration.
So you have to run both Strava and Workout app every time? Strava doesn't just port your ride info to the activity app? I know Strava cannot monitor your heart rate unless you use something with it but will it record at least the distance and speed?
I've had this issue with my watch as well - and I also had the Settings/Privacy/Location Services/System Services/"Motion Calibration & Distance" set to off
I just changed it, but I don't think I'll be back on my bike for a few days. I'll post an update when I do.
This makes sense to be the cause. It also makes me see how running would overstate my distance by about 10%, even when I was running with the phone.
I wonder if this will have an effect on phone battery life.
