UA Connected Footwear gives runners the chance to run untethered, without phones or devices. No more waiting for your watch to find a GPS signal, no more worrying about whether or not your devices are charged. Just put on your shoes and go for a run. The shoe will automatically record your workout and send the data to your MapMy app via Bluetooth (when your shoe is awake and in range of your phone).
Running Without Your Phone
If you record a run without the accompaniment of the MapMy app, you will still receive the following stats:
- Start/stop time
- Average pace
- Stride length*
*only available with HOVR shoe models.
Note: you will not receive a map of your route or elevation for any untethered workout. In order to receive these stats, you must run with your UA Connected Footwear connected to a companion MapMy app.
Please note that in order for your shoes to detect your workout on their own, you must start running at a minimum required pace. For Gemini, Europa, and Velociti shoe models, the pace threshold is 11 min/mile or faster. For all HOVR shoe models, the pace threshold is 14 min/mile or faster. Runs that start with a pace slower than the minimum pace threshold will not be recorded by your shoes and will therefore not appear in your MapMy app.
If your average pace is close to or slower than the pace threshold, we recommend that you take your phone with you and start your workout using a MapMy app. You'll still get all the benefits of having smart shoes but without the risk of losing a workout.

Syncing Runs from Shoes to App
After completing an untethered run, you may wish to view your workout stats immediately in your MapMy app. It is important to note, however, that your untethered run may not automatically sync to MapMy upon completion. You can choose to manually sync the workout, however.
To manually sync your runs, make sure your shoes are nearby. Open the MapMy app, tap the shoe icon in the upper right > tap the “Sync” icon > tap or move your right shoe to awaken the sensor. It may take a few moments, but your workout should sync from the shoe to your app and appear under "Latest Workout."
If your workout does not sync from the shoe, please let our support team know by opening the app's menu > scrolling down to select Help > Contact Support > Submit.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many runs can my shoes store without syncing to the app?
For Gemini, Europa, and Velociti shoe models, the shoe can store up to 5 runs before you need to sync your data with MapMy. The maximum limit per workout file is 47 units of measurement, which would be either 47 kilometers (metric users) or 47 miles (imperial users).
For all HOVR shoe models, the shoes will keep the last 6 hours of workouts in its memory until the shoe needs to sync with MapMy.
In both cases, if workout data exceeds storage capacity, the oldest workouts will be replaced by newer workouts until the shoe is synced with the MapMy app.
What happens if I begin a run and then stop briefly for a break?
If you’re running without your phone and stop moving or slow down significantly for several minutes before resuming your run, it's possible that 1 workout may be recorded as 2 by your shoes.
- For Gemini, Europa, and Velociti shoes, if your pace exceeds 11 min/mile for greater than 3 minutes, it's likely that your workout will end. If you begin running again, a new workout will be recorded. This means that the app may have two separate workouts, and there is unfortunately no way to merge them at this time.
- For all HOVR shoes, if your pace exceeds 14 min/mile for greater than 5 minutes, it's likely that your workout will end. If you begin running again, a new workout will be recorded. This means that the app may have two separate workouts, and there is unfortunately no way to merge them at this time.
If you’re using a companion app, such as MapMyRun or MapMyWalk, your workout will continue recording, regardless of pace, until you end the workout on the app.
