How To Use Weav Run

 

New to Weav Run? Here’s our guide to get you started!

 

Q

How do I get going?

A

You can choose between two modes: Match My Stride and Fixed Tempo

Match My Stride mode will start at 100 beats per minute (bpm). Just take off and the music will follow you!

Fixed Tempo mode will let you set your desired beats per minutes (bpm). Set the dial where you want to start, and then press "Start.” You can adjust the dial at any point during the run.
 

Q

Can I play songs from my own playlist?

A

No. We reengineer each song from the ground up to make it adaptable; therefore, we can’t simply link to your Spotify or iTunes. We’re currently working hard to license and reengineer more tunes for you, though!

 

Q

I've downloaded the Apple Watch app, can I run just with my watch?

A 

For now, you need to have your iPhone and watch on you to use Weav Run. This is because we’ve completely reengineered each song to be adaptive, and the songs are housed on your iPhone.

But you can simply put your phone in your pocket, and don’t have to worry about it for the rest of the run. You can change songs, start and stop, and save your run all from your watch. 

 

Q

My coach keeps telling me that I should be running at a certain steps per minute (SPM or cadence), can you help me do that?

A

WE SURE CAN! Put the app on Fixed Tempo mode, enter your desired SPM, and let it rip! If you don't know your cadence, you can use Match My Stride mode, or simply look at the "Sessions" tab to see your average. 

 
 

Q

Can I skip songs?

A 

Yes. To skip a song, tap "..." then "Do not play.” To listen again, just tap the song, and it will return to your queue.

 

Q

Can I shuffle/repeat?

A 

Yes. Simply toggle the shuffle repeat button to the right of the track. Not while in repeat mode, this will repeat a single song as playlists will automatically repeat upon completion.

 

Q

Can I run indoors?

A

Yes, you can! Just be mindful that we can't track your distance when you’re inside on your iPhone (the Apple Watch can though). But you can enter your distance manually on the app after each indoor run, and we’ll calculate your pace for you.

 

Q

How can I find out my baseline cadence?

A

Weav measures your cadence automatically. If you run for at least one mile, you'll have a great sense for your average cadence. If you run for many miles, check the "Sessions" tab of the app to see your average cadence over the course of those runs.

 

Q

I don’t run, can I use Weav Run during my walks?

A

Absolutely! The music will adjust to your tempo, just like it does with running. Speed walk and the music speeds up. Slow down and the music follows you. Just make sure you're walking at a tempo of at least 100 steps per minute; any slower than that, and we're afraid our music may run away from you.

 

Q

Where should I put my phone?

A

Keep your phone in your hand, on your runner’s belt, on your arm/armband, or in a tight pocket while running. Since the app uses your phone’s accelerometer (that’s a real word; we’ll wait while you google it...), to detect your up and down movements to calculate your cadence, it’s necessary that your phone is secure. Avoid loose bouncy places!

 

Q

How do I stop?

Q

Click '“Stop.” Then, “Save.” Don’t forget to share your run on social media!

 
 

Q

I want to listen this without having to go for a dang run!

A

No problem! Choose Match My Stride mode, hold your phone and pretend run (move hands up and down as if running). See? EUREKA! Adaptive running is upon us!

 
 

That’s it! You’re a certified Weaver!
