Voice Feedback is a feature to help you stay informed on your activity without needing you to look at the screen. It consists of audio cues and workout stats from our app through your device's speaker or headphones and is enabled by default.
To enable/disable voice feedback visit the app settings or "Workout Setup" screen by tapping the Settings icon in the upper right corner. The volume of the Voice Feedback mirrors the volume setting currently set on your phone. Intervals for voice feedback can be based on either time (30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes and 20 minutes) or distance (.1, .25, .5, 1, 2, 5, 10, and 25 miles or kilometers).
You may need to readjust the volume when switching from the device speaker, headphones, or Bluetooth audio.
The volume of the Voice Feedback setting is controlled by your Android device. To change the voice on your device, go to your device's Settings > Language & Input > Text-to-speech output. You may want to search the Google Play Store for a new Text-to-speech voice in your preferred language or that suits you better.
Android users please note: voice feedback will not work with "Do Not Disturb" mode enabled. In addition, if you are using Bluetooth headphones, you will need to disable the "in-call" volume feature in order to hear Voice Feedback.
A note about Pace / Speed Current, Average and Split definitions:
Average - The average pace / speed of your entire activity
Current - The estimated pace / speed that you are currently moving. This can take moments to reflect changes in speed and may not be instantaneous speed as GPS based tracking uses the most recent data points to calculate your rate of movement and may not reflect your momentary pace / speed. Simply put, this metric can take a moment to reflect any change in your pace / speed.
Split - The pace / speed of your last interval, such as a kilometer or mile. If you covered your last mile in 10 minutes, this would be your split pace. Please note that your Split pace and Average pace can sometimes match, but will not always, and is dependent on the length of your workout and the changing of your pace during the workout.
MVP Users will have additional Voice Feedback benefits and options from their Coaching settings and be able to select additional metrics to hear during their workout. For more information on this, see here: Coaching
Distance-based voice feedback is dependent on which system of distance measurement units (imperial or metric) is selected in the general app settings, and on outdoor recordings having a good GPS signal. If it does not produce accurate voice feedback you'll need to follow our GPS troubleshooting steps.
If you are using a watch such as an Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy watch to record your workouts and would like voice feedback, please see below for more information on your specific device.
