Apple Watch Learns About Your Stride, Can Be Use to Track Runs Without the iPhone

Christy Turlington Burns reveals that after running a few times with both your iPhone and Apple Watch, the watch learns about your stride and can be used to track runs without the iPhone.

Turlington Burns is writing a series of blog posts for Apple about using the watch to train for the Virgin Money London Marathon.

After you run with Apple Watch and your iPhone a few times, the Workout app knows more about your stride. So you can run on a treadmill or outside without your phone and still get a really accurate workout summary. By midweek I had to get a long run in, but even 14 miles was challenging in one shot. So instead of one long run, I broke it into two 7-mile runs (morning and evening). In the morning, I ran the first 3 miles outdoors and the next 4 miles indoors.

Notably, Turlington Burns also shares a picture of her installing a new band on the Apple Watch. "Went for the pink band. Wanted something more fun for the Caribbean."

"After you run with Apple Watch and your iPhone a few times, the Workout app knows more about your stride." You still have to workout/run with your apple watch AND iphone couple of times for apps to remember your workout patterns. Then pedometer on apple watch will give health apps to "assume" hoe much you work out. Basically its an expensive pedometer on your wrist. Sigh
