Exercise, Music, Data and the Awesome Combination of the Three

Got an Apple Watch? This One’s For You

Apple Watch users rejoice! RockMyRun is now compatible with your favorite smartwatch.

If you’re anything like us, exercising with a phone in hand feels like running in untied shoes. Something’s gonna fall, you just hope it isn’t you.

That’s why, when it comes to controlling your music, we say, “Be greedy. Be REALLY greedy.” We want you to have access to all the music and stats your heart desires – always. If we could tie your shoes for you, too, better believe we’d do it.

That’s why, from one control freak to another, we present RockMyRun for Apple Watch.

RockMyRun Apple Watch Screens

Pause, Skip, and Adjust

You can now play, pause, skip, and adjust the music tempo of any RockMyRun station directly from your Apple Watch (Note: tempo adjustment is only available to Rockstar members). Get the music you want, how you want it, when you want it and watch those PRs roll in. Even more: You can view a recap of each workout on our brand new finish screen built specifically for Apple Watch.

Get Stats Instantly

With RockMyRun for Apple Watch, you can now access an abundance of new data as you exercise. Want to check your heart rate? No problem. Want to take a quick peek at your pace or total steps? Go for it. We make it easy to shift between screens so you can get all the stats you need in a quick and easy swipe.

RockMyRun Apple Watch Heart Rate

Listen to Your Heart Rate

Ever run up a hill while listening to a song that feels slower than a sloth on a hot summer day? Or maybe you’re lifting at the gym, just to hear the tempo drop when you were ready to hit that last set? By syncing RockMyRun music to your heart rate, say sayonara to mid-workout tempo busters. We listen to your body to play the music it craves.

  1. Will the runs get logged as a workout in the activity app? I love the heart rate and pace info, but without the run counting as a workout, it’s hard for me to go all in and get a premium account.

    Great work, otherwise!! I love the app!

    • Hi Erik,

      Great question and we’re so glad to hear you’re enjoying the app! Your runs should be logged as workouts in HealthKit. All you have to do is make sure you’ve enabled HealthKit permissions in the app (you can check to make sure this is done by going to “Settings” > “Profile” from the menu and tapping “Sync with HealthKit”).

      You’ll also want to make sure you either hit Pause or Finish each time you complete a workout to ensure your data sent to HealthKit.

      Let us know if you run into any problems with this! You can get a hold of us at any time by emailing support@rockmyrun.com.

    Can a playlist be downloaded to your apple watch so that your phone can be left behind or do you have to have the phone and can simply manage the play on your watch?
