How to Run with Your UA Connected Footwear + MapMy App
To start a run using the shoes and app, open your MapMy app, and make sure the Track Workout screen has a red bar across the top and check mark next to the shoe icon.
If your Track Workout screen is missing either of those indicators, that means your shoes are not connected. Follow the tips outlined here to reconnect your shoes to the app.
Make sure that the correct activity type is selected prior to beginning your workout. The shoes are meant to record any type of run (indoor or outdoor); however, you'll need to select "Treadmill Run," for example, in order for indoor workouts to be recorded properly.
To change activity types, tap the gear icon in the upper right > tap "See More Activities" > tap "All" > tap the search bar > type your desired activity type and tap to select it. Note that this will remain your activity type for future workouts until changed by you.
You can view a list of your workouts on our mobile application by opening the MapMy app and accessing your Training Dashboard or Activity Feed.
On iOS, tap the "Training" icon in the bottom navigation bar. On Android, open the app's Menu by tapping the icon with three horizontal bars in the upper left corner of the app, then select "Dashboard" from the list.
From the Dashboard, tab over to your Workouts list. All workouts recorded with your smart shoes will have a red shoe icon. Tap on a workout to view details.
Scroll down to see the full workout details.
Tap the "Show All Data" button to view additional data, such as elevation, pace vs. elevation, and cadence vs. elevation graphs. Heart rate graphs will also appear here, if recorded with the use of an external heart rate monitor.
What is cadence and what does it measure?
Cadence measures steps per minute, or how often your feet hit the ground. There is no one right cadence, but generally less experienced runners have a cadence that's too low. For more information about cadence, please read our blog article found here.
What is stride length and what does it measure?
Your stride length is the distance between two consecutive steps of the same foot. Tracing your stride length can keep you from "overstriding," which is often linked to injury. Most beginner runners have a stride length that's too long.
Can I run without my phone?
Yes, but the workout will not have a map of your route or any cadence data. To learn more about how to run untethered, check out our Help Center article on Running Without Your Phone.
