• GPS Troubleshooting Guide for Android Devices

    If you’re having difficulties tracking distance with your Runtastic app, it is likely that your device is experiencing GPS issues. Due to the different built-in GPS receivers in each smartphone we can’t always guarantee exact tracking results. However, if your GPS results appear to be inaccurate or you are unable to get a GPS signal, please use our Step by Step Troubleshooting Guide below:

    Step 1  Install the latest version of the Runtastic app from the Google Play Store if your app is not yet updated

     Step 2 Set the timezone correctly in your device

    1. Go to your phone’s settings
    2. Select the "Date and time" item and ensure the "Automatic date and time" and "Automatic time zone" checkboxes are checked. GPS and the Runtastic app rely heavily on an accurate time and time zone.

     Step 3 Ensure that GPS is enabled on your device

    1. Go to your phone’s settings
    2. Select “Location Settings”
    3. It may be that your phone has three different modes for location services, “High Accuracy” , “Power Saving,” or “Device Only”.  If this is the case, always select “High accuracy” to enable your phone to use the GPS and your phone’s network to retrieve the location points.

     Step 4 Give the Runtastic app permission to access your location:

    1. Go to your phone’s settings
    2. Select “Apps”
    3. Find Runtastic in the list and ensure “Location” is enabled

    (Note: the location of the app permissions can vary on different Android devices)

     Step 5 Deactivate the power saver on your device

    Many new smartphones use a “Smart Manager” or similar kind of power saver, which might cause your app to crash, or interfere with the GPS tracking. For detailed information on deactivating the power saver on popular devices, see here.

    Step 6 Disable optimization if it is enabled (for devices running Android 6 or higher)

    Optimization might block some of the functionality of your app so we recommend all our users to disable it if is enabled. For guidance on how to disable optimization for popular devices, see here.

    Step 7 Ensure that the GPS signal indicator is green before you hit start. Try to avoid starting your activity in areas where there may be a weaker GPS signal, i.e. near high buildings, deep forests, or near huge amounts of water like lakes or the ocean.

  • Time to fadeout the Routes Feature!

    We want to let you know that we’ve decided to say goodbye to the Routes feature within the adidas Running app. 

    Our priority is providing an awesome app experience, no matter which of our apps you use. That’s why we are focusing our energy on the features where we see the greatest potential. 

    We’ve now partnered up with route provider app Komoot to provide you with an exciting way to stay active outdoors.

    What does the fadeout mean for you?

    Don’t worry, you can still download your routes in the adidas Running app by following the steps below, until 6th of April, 2021:

    Android:

    • Open the adidas Running app
    • Go to your activity screen and click on settings (gear icon) next to “Start”
    • Now click on “Select Your Route” 
    • Here you can choose between your marked, created or completed routes
    • Once you click on “Start exploring” in the respective category, you’ll be able to see all created routes
    • To start the export click on your preferred route
    • Click on “Export as .gpx file” 
    • Select where you want to export the GPX file to.

    Please, note that you can only export one route at a time. After you export your routes as a GPX file, you can import the routes to other route provider apps. 

    While you might still see the Routes feature available in your setup activity screen, you are no longer able to explore, use or create a new route within the adidas Running app after April 6th, 2021. If this is the case for you, please simply update your app to the latest version and the Routes feature should disappear from the activity setup screen completely.

    After the fadeout date your completed routes will also no longer be linked to your past activities. 

    What does this partnership mean for you?

    We know that you might miss this feature, which is why we made sure to have an alternative ready for you. We are excited to let you know that we partnered up with Komoot, an app that lets you discover, plan, and share routes for different sports. 

    Driven by a desire to explore, and powered by the outdoor community’s recommendations, it’s Komoot’s mission to inspire great adventures making them accessible to all. 

    • Connect with other athletes and explore the great outdoors 
    • Get inspired by tapping into an online community and get recommendations
    • Bring your adventures to life with the easy route planner.

    We sent our recent Routes users a code for a Region Bundle from Komoot via email and also in your notification inbox in the adidas Running app. Make sure to also check your spam folder for our email.

    With the Region Bundle you can unlock routes for multiple regions, use voice navigation, offline maps and receive weekly updates for your route activities. If you want to navigate and upload your exported GPx files directly to Komoot, make sure to follow the steps described in this article. There is also a Komoot support article for export and import here.

    If you would like to see your new Komoot activities in the adidas Running app, make sure to connect your Komoot account to your Garmin, Polar or Suunto device (Komoot available devices) and your adidas Running account to the same Garmin, Polar, or Suunto device (adidas Running Partner Accounts). 

    As soon as you connect your Komoot and adidas Running accounts to the same smartwatch device, every activity that you do with the Komoot app will be synced to your adidas Running app. This means the activities you do with Komoot still count towards Virtual Races, Challenges, to your training plan and Goals that you have set in the adidas Running app. If you are a Creators Club member, you will also receive your Creators Club points. *

    We don’t just want to stop here, so be on the lookout for more partners to come in the future to even further improve your route experience in connection with adidas Running.

    If you face any difficulties with redeeming your Komoot Regional bundle code, please reach out to our Customer Happiness team by submitting a ticket below. 

    *Only in countries where Creators Club is available.

  • Troubleshooting Heart Rate Monitor And Bluetooth Issues

    TROUBLESHOOTING HEART RATE MONITOR AND BLUETOOTH ISSUES

    If you own a heart rate monitor (HRM) with Bluetooth 4.0 (Smart) capacity, you can use it to record your heart rate while tracking with the adidas Running app. Instructions on how to connect your device can be found here. 

    As there are many devices on the market from various manufacturers with different specifications, we cannot always guarantee that your device will work flawlessly with the app. However, the following tips will resolve many of the most common connection issues:

    Minimum Requirements (Android):

    • Your phone: Android 8.0
    • Your heart rate monitor:  Bluetooth 4.0 capability (Smart) 
    • Your adidas Running app: Latest version installed from the Google Play Store

    Configure the following settings in your phone:

    • Make sure that bluetooth is turned on and that your phone screen is on
    • Close any background apps that may be using the sensor before connecting to the adidas Running app 
    • Do not connect the HRM directly in your phone’s bluetooth settings. If it already is connected there, be sure to disconnect it:

    Settings > Bluetooth > tap the gear icon next to your HRM, and tap FORGET. 

    Make sure that the HRM itself is in good condition:

    • Check whether the battery of the device needs replacing
    • Make sure the device’s firmware is up-to-date
    • Wipe the sensor with a damp cloth and hand wash the belt well with soap and water as dirt can often cause connection errors.
    • Make sure the HRM is tight but comfortable around the chest to ensure a good connection; if the monitor moves or slips it may disrupt readings
    • Close the adidas Running app and remove the heart rate sensor from the strap. Wait 30 seconds, place the sensor back on the strap then reopen the app.
    • If this does not help, remove the battery and touch and hold both sensor points for at least 10 seconds. Wait 5 minutes then put the battery back in. 

    If your connection issues persist and the device’s LEDs are still working, it is possible that you’re experiencing a signal interference from a nearby app or device. In this case, please unpair your HRM from any previously paired apps or devices. Keep in mind that certain devices that transmit wireless signals could also be interfering with the connection, such as wireless headphones, wireless routers, or fitness machines, e.g. treadmills. You may need to move to a new environment away from any potential interferences.  

    Note: You can also track your heart rate using wireless headphones with integrated HRM (Bluetooth Smart Technology). Use these same troubleshooting steps if you have any difficulties with the connection. 

    Still having trouble with the connection? Please submit a request below and include details of the phone and device you are using.

  • Shoe Tracking

    Do you know the last time you changed your running shoes? We recommend that you change your running shoes, depending on the model, about every 500 kilometers to reduce the risk of injury.

    The Shoe Tracking feature automatically assigns your kilometers to your running shoe.

    Add a Shoe

    Follow these simple steps to add a shoe for the first time:

    • Tap the “Profile” tab
    • Scroll to “My Shoes”
    • Tap “Add Your First Shoe” 
    • Select the brand of your shoe from the list or enter the brand in the search field

    • Set a limit for your shoe** and tap “Done”

    * Shoe Tracking is available for Running, Walking, Nordic Walking, Hiking and Running (Treadmill).

    ** We recommend retiring your shoes after 500 km. At this point, the cushioning capability of your shoes decreases, exposing your joints to greater shock and force.

    Note: If you cannot find the brand or model of your shoe, select “Other” and enter the model name in the Nickname field.

    Here, you have the possibility to retire your shoe by tapping “Retire”.

    Note: Currently, you cannot reactivate a shoe. If you have already retired it, you cannot restore it.

    • Toggle LIVE Tracking on

    Shortly after you tap “START LIVE,” the link to your LIVE activity will be sent via push notification to your followers (those who have enabled push notifications for LIVE tracking). Those who do not have push notifications activated can find the link to your LIVE activity in the Notification Inbox.

    How will my followers be notified that I am LIVE tracking?

    Shortly after you tap “START LIVE,” the link to your LIVE activity will be sent via push notification to your followers (those who have enabled push notifications for LIVE tracking). Those who do not have push notifications activated can find the link to your LIVE activity either in the Notification Inbox or at the top of the News Feed under “Now LIVE.” 

    Cheering

    Your followers can cheer you on directly in the app and you will hear the cheer they send played through your headphones. 

    My settings are private, why can users who are not my followers still see my LIVE activities and send me LIVE Cheers?

    If you don’t want your activity to be public, don’t go LIVE. When you enable LIVE Tracking, it’s similar to running a “public race” you’ve signed up for. You can’t control who is watching you run or who is on the sidelines cheering you on – the same goes for LIVE Tracking.

    Runtastic Heart Rate Combo Monitor

    To connect the Runtastic Heart Rate Combo Monitor, make sure that the Bluetooth of your device is switched on and then put on the Monitor like you would when going for a run.

    This option allows you to connect other Heart Rate Monitors. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your HR monitor will work as each device can have different specifications.

    • Activity Type: Select the type of your activity, eg Running, Walking etc
    • Music & Story Running: Select if you want to listen to music while exercising or try one of our Story Runs
    • Workout Type: Select how you want to work out

    At the bottom of the screen, you can activate or deactivate a few more functions:

    • Customize displayed values: Take a look at this article for more information about this function
    • Heart Rate Monitor: If you own a compatible Heart Rate Monitor, you can connect it with the app right here
    • Voice Coach: Here you can find all the settings relating to the Voice Coach feature
    • LIVE Tracking: Here you can find all the settings relating to LIVE Tracking
    • Auto Pause: Here you can find all the settings relating to the Auto Pause feature
    • Countdown: Enable/Disable a 15-second countdown before the start of your session. This option comes in handy when you need some time to put your phone away and get ready

    Tap “Done” in the top right hand corner to save any changes you have made. 

    Once configured, you can simply hit “Start” on the main screen to start your activity. You don’t need to repeat this setup each time before you work out because the adidas Running app will remember your settings.

    * This feature is available to you in the adidas Running app as a Premium Member.
