Better Your Best: Track Runner Version 3.0 Helps Runners Train Smarter with Interval Workouts and Pacer Feature. The App Cauldron, Inc. announces the latest update to its award winning running app Track Runner includes adaptive interval training and a pacer to help runners beat their personal best.
The new intervals feature offers a selection of workouts – including Pyramid Training and Marathon Speedwork Boost – that adapt to the user’s training level and progress. In addition, the custom intervals option allows users to design fully individualized workouts with a few taps.
The pacer feature lets users set a goal – such as running 10K in 40 minutes – and then coaches the runner through the run. For ambitious runners, Track Runner provides the option to enable negative splits, an effective strategy to improve race times.
To make these new features work, the company’s engineering team has spent six months developing pace analytics, a statistical algorithm designed to cancel GPS noise to accurately estimate the runner’s pace without a step sensor. This approach allows Track Runner to monitor the runner in real time and react to changes in his performance with audio and visual guidance.
“With this update we really wanted to push the boundaries of what runners should expect from a running app. Sure, most activity trackers record basic data such as distance and time, but over and over runners told us they finally want a running app that enhances their training instead of just recording it. With our new interval trainer and pacer we have achieved just that,” explains Sarah Fegert, Co-Founder of The App Cauldron.
The update further includes an improved user interface and support for Windows Phone 8.1.
To help runners learn about Track Runner, Microsoft will feature the app on Windows Phone Stores worldwide. This includes a weeklong promotion in June that will see Track Runner being displayed on the Windows Phone Store’s prime promotional slots.
