App DescriptionForget everything you know about running and listen to the music.
Cruise Control powers your running through music. Weâ€™ve teamed up with the worldâ€™s leaders in Kinesiology (thatâ€™s the study of running!) at Simon Fraser University to leverage state-of-the-art, patented math and science to bring you one seriously fun running experience. Just go for a run with it and youâ€™ll know what weâ€™re talking about. Here are the basics:
1. Choose how you want to run (pace, heart rate, cadence, or free run mode).
2. Choose your favorite running music.
3. Go for a run. Cruise Control will adjust your music to control your running and keep you on track to hit your goal pace, heart rate, or cadence. Itâ€™s magic.
Want more info about the different running modes?
A good place to start! Just go for a run and the rhythm of the music will adjust to match your running rhythm. Automatically. What kind of wizardry is this?
Pick a target speed and go! As long as you match your steps to the rhythm of the music, the music will get you to your target speed and keep you there. (Powered by some serious, serious science.)
Pick a target heart rate and go! Just like Pace Mode, as long as you match your steps to the rhythm of the music, the music will drive you to your heart rate goal. (Yes, you need a Heart Rate Monitor)
Special order for the 90 spm junkies! Pick a target stride rate and Cruise Control will adjust all your songs to play at the same tempo. (Also great for showing off how the App works.)
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
