    literally just got series 4 yesterday for my birthday. I want to figure out what I need to do to set it up for my style of workouts, and how well does it link to my mapmyrun, myfitnesspal, etc. or do i even need those with internal apps.

    From YouTubing and Googling, I’ve found out the AW4 has the most accurate wrist optical sensor for heart rate on the market. Beating even Garmin. The AW4 is almost as accurate as wearing a chest strap. Sure, the top end Garmin have better dedicated fitness apps especially for serious amateurs and up, but you need a chest strap to get as accurate as AW4 on HR. Plus the AW4 can of course also be used with a chest strap if you want. Plus AW4 is cheaper. PS. The AW3 as in this vid has the old sensor and is not as accurate as the AW4. Probably the best reason to upgrade.

    You tested it disconnected from iPhone? That’s not right! Meaning connected to iPhone would last even less so it’s not accurate

    How about the battery wear? Was the Series 3 brand new? Because after a year of usage, battery life can be degraded a bit, so it could affect the result.

    Next time try having your heart rate as a target to watch during the run and not the pace. Better health wise, since you're running anyways.

    MO Nike Run Club is great app too. I like design, especially I like coaches, like audio coach. And the best part is training program with goals, it is interactive, every single day you know what to do, and also you are able to see your progress.
    Strava has nothing from that. AW app can't notify you about segments, training plan is just sending you emails. And there is no checking your progress, no checking how did you run… Every run seems like free run / with no goals.

    iSmoothRun is amazing. You can costum every single workout, you can set every parameter of fartlek or interval running …
    And you can export that data 🙂

    56% at 3hrs I mean that is just bad. I would want at least 3-day/2-day battery at full use, why can they not just make a good battery. Nothing mentioned about the accuracy though????
