Apple Watch

Coaching on your wrist

View key metrics on your wrist, and track your workout your way. Leave your phone behind and go!

Power

A ground-breaking new metric in running, power is a measure of the work you are doing, measured in watts. It factors in gradient too, so you can get a better idea of your effort on any kind of terrain. Track your power on the Watch app as you run, and pace yourself over the race distance. PODIUM has the only accurate non-device running power in the world.

Step Rate

Improving your step rate can make you a faster runner, slower to tire out and ultimately make running more comfortable. In PODIUM, expert coaching helps you find the optimal step rate.

Training Zones

Make your training as effective as possible. Once calibrated with personalized training zones, you can use the power gauge on the Watch to ensure you’re always exercising at the correct effort.

Pace & Distance

Important metrics like average pace and distance are still there, so you can always swipe to stay on track of your run.

Performance Peaks

Every workout you do is analyzed based on 5 components, represented by a different Performance Peak: Technique, Endurance, Strength, Speed, and Execution. After a workout, tap anywhere on the Peaks to dive into detail on that metric. This is also where you will receive detailed post-workout analysis and coaching.

Technique

Without good basics, everything else is irrelevant! An optimal technical score indicates minimal difference between your step rate on the flat and your step rate when you’re climbing.

Endurance

Your endurance capability is your workout to workout physical ability, i.e. your performance score on the Fitness Trend graph. An increasing score shows fitness improvement.

Strength

Your workout strength score is based on the volume of climbing you do in a workout. For example, if you have a lot of hills in your workout, you’ll get a greater strength score for that run.

Speed

Your speed score is based on our calibration engine, and tracks your Anaerobic Threshold. As this improves, so will your speed score.

Execution

Execution is based on how much your speed varies over the course of the workout. Keeping your speed consistent over the entire run will help you achieve a higher execution score.

Fitness Trend

Track your overall fitness status

Know when you are ready to perform at your best. The graph has two measures: Readiness (the solid triangles) and Fitness (the line).

Readiness Score

This indicates your workout to workout physical ability. You’ll get a solid triangle every time you run. In general, your triangles should trend upward. If your post-workout triangle is lower than the previous one, it may be an indication that you need some rest!

Training Mix

Use the histogram to get a visual of how many minutes of easy, climbing and speed training you’ve done per week or per day as a stacked column. Changes in the volume or the type of training will impact your Fitness and Readiness scores, as reflected in the Fitness Trend graph above. PODIUM programs are designed to help you achieve the optimal training mix.

Fitness Trend

Fitness is a longer term measure of the consistency of your physical ability. Watch for the trend –up is good, plateauing or going down, might be an indication of overtraining and poor exercise management.

Frequently asked questions

  • I don’t have an Apple Watch, can I still use PODIUM?

    We use the Apple Watch (series 3 or 4) to gather data about your running performance. The Watch app is also where you see key metrics like step rate, power and pace as you run. Then once your workout is synced you will receive coaching feedback on the iPhone. If you only have an iPhone, you will be able to generate a training program, but your performance will not be tracked anywhere. We currently support iOS 12 and higher.

  • Is there an Android app?

    At this stage there is no Android version of PODIUM.

  • Does PODIUM have in-workout or audio coaching?

    Currently, you will receive specific post-workout coaching in the iPhone app, based on your performance. In-workout and audio coaching is coming very soon! Keep an eye on Facebook to stay up to date.

  • Can I extend my free trial?

    In some circumstances we may be able to extend your 4 week trial. Get in touch with our support team here.

  • How do I upgrade to premium?

    You can upgrade at any time. Check out our pricing plans to find an option that suits you.

  • How do I set my training zones?

    If you know your 5km race pace, you can set your zones in the app, under Profile > Pace & Stride Targets, otherwise we will prompt you with a tailored recommendation based on your running physiology.

  • I’m not sure how to navigate the Apple Watch!

    Look for the PODIUM icon on the Apple Watch and tap to open the app. You will be prompted to choose a workout type – if you have a training program make sure you select the workout type that matches (e.g. “Easy” or “Long”). In the Watch app you can swipe left to navigate to different screens, which have a hero metric such as Power, Distance, Step Rate and more. The next time you open the app, it will open on the screen you left it on.

  • My workout hasn’t synced – what should I do?

    Check your phone is connected to the internet or pull to refresh.

  • The app has frozen on ‘allow permissions’ screen – what do I do?

    You need to go into ‘Settings’ on your phone, find PODIUM in your apps, and make sure the “Never” option is not ticked under “Allow Location Access.”

  • How do I enable ‘Health Activity’/‘Motion Activity’/‘Location’?

    You will be prompted to provide PODIUM with these permissions when you first download the app. If you skip this step initially you can enable them at any time. Go into ‘Settings’ on your phone and find PODIUM in your app list. Ensure both ‘Motion & Fitness’ and ‘Location’ permissions are enabled. These permissions are required for use of the Apple Watch component, so you may encounter a block here if these have not been enabled.

  • What happens if I miss a workout in my program?

    Our plans are designed to accommodate life! We know unforeseen things can sometimes get in the way of training, that’s where our skip workout feature with automatic optimization of workouts is invaluable. You can skip workouts in your program if you miss them, and your program will adjust.

  • Why does my long day keep moving when I try to skip it?

    Your long training day is the most important of the week, therefore the automatic optimization of the program will try to help you fit in your long day if it is possible to still allow enough recovery time between other workouts.
