Visualize running, walking, cycling or swimming workouts from your Apple Watch on your iPhone, upload them to your favorite online fitness tracking community, and share a summary on social media.
Wear your Apple Watch, leave your iPhone at home. After calibrating your stride, your watch is surprisingly accurate in keeping track of your pace and heart rate, even without the GPS in newer models. Save your workouts on your watch so they end up in the Health app on your iPhone.
For each individual workout, the Workouts app will visualize heart rate and pace over time (with average, minimum and maximum values). You can also see the distance, duration, burned energy, and split times for individual laps. A handy list view allows to compare runs at a glance.
Workouts can be exported (through iTunes, Dropbox, email) as .tcx files (a standard exchange format supported by most online fitness tracking communities), so you can upload them for further analysis. Alternatively, you can quickly share a summary of your workout on social media.
The Workouts app needs your permission to read data from the Health app in order to visualize your workouts. It also allows to save workouts to local files which can be exported through iTunes.
Because health data can be sensitive, we made a deliberate decision not to include any logging or analytics functionality and not to integrate any 3rd party code. This way you can be sure that the Workouts app does not track your behavior or data in any way.
Why is there no GPS route in the exported data?
Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to access location data that has been recorded by another app during a workout. Apple engineers have confirmed that there is no supported way to achieve the desired functionality given the currently shipping system configurations. An enhancement request has been submitted.
