Apple Watch: Enabling Permissions

Whether you wish to use the Standalone app (Watch Only) or the Second Screen function (Watch + Phone), there are some permissions you need to enable first on your iPhone. 

To enable the permissions and set up your adidas Running app on the Apple Watch, follow the steps below:

  • Open the adidas Running app on your iPhone
  • Tap the “Profile” tab
  • Tap the gear icon in the top right corner
  • Select “Apple Watch”
  • Follow the on-screen instructions

When you reach the Permissions screen, GPS Location, Motion & Fitness* and Apple Health** must be toggled on.

*If you are not able to toggle on Motion & Fitness, please navigate to “Privacy” in the Settings of your iPhone, tap “Motion & Fitness” and ensure that “Fitness Tracking” and “adidas Running” are activated. 

**All categories must be turned on for the adidas Running app in Apple Health.
