Q

What is Weav Run?

A

A new running music app that applies a groundbreaking technology that re-engineers music to adapt to your movement. 

Weav Run is powered by Weav Music, a technology that allows artists to specify how a track should evolve as the tempo of someones movement increases or decreases; a single song can be now become a completely different listening experience every time, based on your movement.

Running in sync with music is proven to release more endorphins (the happiness molecule), and decrease fatigue and pain.

Q

Can I use my own music?

A

Not really - We completely re-engineer each song to make it fully adaptable to your movements. But have no fear! We're developing curated playlists including world-class artists that are specifically designed to improve your running experience!

Can I run on a treadmill?

Yeppers! Just add your distance manually, as we track distance via GPS.

 

Q

Can I use Weav Run and other running apps simultaneously?

A

Surefire thing! We have a full Strava integration (if you're linked up, your saved runs will automatically post), and Weav won't interfere with any other running apps you might run simultaneously.

 

Q

What's the difference between Weav and Spotify Run, or other similar apps?

A

While those apps rank songs in terms of their basic BPM range, and try to group songs of a similar BPM to match the pace you want to achieve, none of these apps will change the BPM of the song dynamically to adapt to your movements in REAL TIME. We've created a way to re-engineer songs so they still maintain the artistic vision of the artist, while sounding amazing at any pace, from a fast walk up to a full sprint.

Q

A

No, you don't, but you must set up the app and download the songs while connected to wifi or lte (we strongly suggest downloading songs via wifi, not data). 

 

Q

What's the difference between cadence and pace?

A

Cadence (stride rate) is the number of steps a runner takes per minute. 

Pace is the number of minutes it takes to run a mile or kilometer. 

Additionally, stride is the length of a step or manner of taking steps in walking or running.
