Poor apps, not fully test before rollout. 1) Pop up "please provide vaild time zone" 2) when issue 1 fixed, but the track is poor why i ran 3 hours already abd show me less than 2 mile? I'm not a tortoise. Finally, i use my garmin watch to show my running track.
It's totally death. Can't start. Can't upload my time.
Same problem! Android mobile phone. Redownload the apps and try to set the time zone in London instead of Hong Kong. Have tried 2 hours! Not able to set properly! Would use Garmin watch instead!
very late release the apps before marathon, no practice for users, but time zone error for Hong Kong users when start running. No instruction how to solve it in the apps. Use my watch instead finally.
Very bad app, not user friendly and the run tracking is wrong, 3 miles behind my Garmin watch. How comes?!
