Popular running and fitness app MapMyRun from Under Armour is gearing up to introduce some much-anticipated features for Apple Watch users.
2020 was an interesting year for UnderArmour as the company had to navigate several challenges. They decided to sunset their Endomondo fitness platform but keep MapMyFitness.
MapMyRun now has 1 million connected Under Armour shoes and the company appears to be investing in this popular app. Furthermore, Under Armour decided to sell MyFitnessPal to Francisco Partners for $345 million last year. Going forward, MapMyFitness and Under Armour’s connected footwear will lead its digital strategy.
It appears that MapMyRun is now seeing new investments from UnderArmour.
We have found that the MapMyRun app is introducing new Apple Watch complications in its upcoming watchOS release
As per the software code specs discovered by our friend, @SteveMoser,
“You can now add a MapMy complication to your Apple Watch face. Choose from Weekly Distance, Weekly Duration, Activity Launcher, or Last Workout to quickly access your workout data.”
Based on this documentation, users will be able to use the new complications providing them with easy access to various workout stats right from the watch face.
The popular third-party app allows users to track runs directly from their Apple Watch app and get visual, haptic, and audio progress updates in real-time.
This set of new complications, when available, will make it even easier for users to keep a tab on their workout statistics.
Many third-party Apple Watch apps have recently started to bolster up their complication offerings
In the health space, HeartAnalyzer has done a wonderful job in integrating new complications into the Apple Watch.
As of writing, the MapMyRun app on the app store does not yet have these new complications. We will update this post when the app developer introduces the new changes.
If you are a MapMyRun user, you will be happy to know that the company is working to update the app and make it more Apple Watch friendly.
