    Hello all,

    Does anyone know if there is a 3rd party running app which utilizes the GPS in the AW Series 2 ?
    The apps I have tried so far relies on the GPS inside the iPhone.

    I am also trying to find an app with voice feedback during your run.

    Thanks.

    Those third party apps haven't yet been updated to take advantage of the Series 2 built in GPS. Hopefully the wait won't be too much longer.

    None that I've heard of, but I haven't been keeping close watch on them either. All I know for sure is that that Runmeter doesn't.

    Strava for Apple Watch can work without a phone, and
    Nike Running Club does too.

    That wasn’t the case a year ago when the thread was started. Back then, the developers hadn’t had time to update their apps to take advantage of the series 2 built in GPS.

    Though it is good to know that they’ve been updated. Not that I’d expect less from either of those apps.
