    Enable LIVE tracking to let your followers know that you’re going out for a run.

    • Toggle LIVE Tracking on

    On this screen, you will also find additional settings for the LIVE Tracking. Choose whether to allow cheering and/or sharing to Facebook.

     

    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

    Enable the toggle next to “Allow Cheering” to get cheered on during a run. This will allow your followers to 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.

  • View My History

    To activate the synchronization with Apple Health, tap “Profile” followed by the gear icon to reach the settings of the adidas Running app. Select “Partner Accounts” and enable Apple Health. To select the data to be synchronized, open your Apple Health App and open “Sources”.

  • Setup & Activity Setup Screen

    To change the Activity Type, tap the Activity Setup icon next to the “Start” button (the current Activity Type will be displayed).

    You will reach the Activity Setup screen, which allows you to choose all aspects of your next activity in one place.

    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.
