Pause announcements on phone calls please!!!

Please have the app pause announcements on phone calls!! Please ! Please! Thanks, TC Calvo

Need O2 Monitor

Need the ability to add Oxygen Level info from iHealth Oximeter or other Oximeter. Helps monitor O2 while walking for those challenged. Like Emphysema. Otherwise outstanding app.

Keeps stopping on its own

I've used this for over a year but now it can't seem to stay running for the entire walk. Hard to keep mileage and other data when it stops before you get going. Probably stops because I don't have the pro version.


I am discussed with having to read all that information and not being able to load the program and get on with my bike ride or walk. I liked it better when it was easy to go from wake, bike or hiking. I would like to go back to the original it is not worth a upgrade that want let me access the program.



Last upgrade deleted al my data

I'm not training for anything so it's not critical, and maybe I missed the fine print, but the latest upgrade erased my history and all my routes. Just a note of something to beware. Other than that it had been a great, easy to use little tracker app.

Good all-around Walking App...

By the name you would surmise that it would be all about walking, but the interface can overwhelm you with too much information...some of which was not desired, therefore just taking up space. Case in point, and the split data, and comparisons to historical splits, etc. is overkill when you just want to use it for non-competitive purposes. I suppose it's fine that it's capable of doing all that, but don't lead with it as a default. Start with a slimmed down Home screen, and offer alternative Home views, if you want certain other features. Also, I've never used an app that was sooo in your face about upgrading to the Elite subscription service. I can get most of what a want without Elite, which is great. I just don't want to pushy nature of what they've done. With regard to the Elite version, I would go for it at $3.99-4.99, but $9.99 seems excessive for what is delivered. I would suggest trying $4.99 or $3.99, and see if the adoption of the upgrade increases overall revenues. More Users * Lower Cost = Greater Total Revenue. They should blast that offer to users and see what happens.

I loved and easy for me

I'm really happy is amazing


It's not easy to use. It's Complicated

Working with a couple issues

Update 4-1-2017 So I have been able to get each of three apps to work but there are a couple things to making it work. First I have two series 2 watches and always would leave the three apps in the dock. This will not work. It has worked up till the latest version of IOS and WatchOS. Also finding that if I change watch shortly after using and app I need to reboot to get it to work again. Again this has worked till now. I could ride for 3+ hours with watch one, get off the bike change watch for fresh battery and jog. This now requires a reboot of the phone or the apps will lock up. Not a huge issue other than it slows the transition in training. I do recognize that a high end Garmin good do all this but I have been happy doing this with Apple Watch and these apps since series 0. Original review For the first time in about 6 years that I have been using the three apps from Abvio I am leaving less then 5 stars. There was 7 betas of IOS 10.3, how could not one of the three apps be ready and stable? I would be fine if you all communicate with your elite members but you don't. I am an elite subscriber to all three apps and all are broke and unstable on 10.3. Maybe send and email out to not update or here is a idea get a Facebook page and put up and update. Since I jog 3 days a week, cycle 3 days a week and walk on my recovery day I am hoping for a quick resolution. What I have done to try and fix the problem. Uninstalled all three apps from my phone and watch. Rebooted both phone and watch. There does not seem to be any way to make the apps stable. I get dropped heart rate, dropped distance even though it tracks on the map. Also the apps on the watch will crash and restart for no reason. I will add my weightlifting software works fine and tracks heart rate perfectly under 10.3 on my phone and watch. I downloaded and tried another running app and it tracks fine.

Now totally useless-

- Except as a stopwatch. Sometimes. App stopped on its own the last 5 times I used it. Today, the timer works but it no longer records any distance. Map seems to be working fine.

Wonderful support

I'm so impressed with this app, and with the personal, prompt, and intelligent response I received when I emailed the help desk.

Great Hiking App

I have been hiking trails throughout the US and Europe for over 20 years. This app is excellent for tracking my progress and I have used it for 2 to 3 years and love it. I would recommend it highly.

Subscription Based

When looking at activity tracking apps with Apple Watch functionality I came across this one. The screens looked interesting (both watch and iPhone) too. Once I loaded it, it seemed as all the functions I was interested in were ONLY available if you paid the $9.99/yr subscription fee. I'm not against paying for software as I have paid for a number of apps. Including ones with annual subscriptions. But none of those were so severely crippled unless you went with the subscription. So, I deleted the app. I gave this app 2 stars because it may work in its crippled state. And it does have a watch "app" in that crippled state that shows you three things. Woo.

Great App

Love it keeps me walking !!!

Like this app a lot!

I have used it nearly every day for over a year. Has a lot of features and is very accurate. I like the history and being able to access my data on a PC. My one support issue was answered promptly. Only drawback is indoor distances are inaccurate. as GPS access is blocked by the building steel, etc.

Quits without reason or warning

I used this app for almost a year and each version got better at serving up obnoxious loud ads and worse at working. The past few weeks it started just stopping without warning. I'd get back from a 60 minute walk and find it stopped 30 minutes into it. Time to find something that works. DELETED

Great App. This has been my favorite app to keep track of my daily walk

This has been ideal. I travel extensively and this keeps track effortlessly. I particularly like the ability to compete against earlier runs on the same course Update: still our goto walking app, but now I learn that customer service is top notch. We had the issue that was solved by the 13 March 17 update. Last week we notified them of the problem by email. The next day I received an email with a temporary work around and a follow up email indicating that found the problem and would update the app

Update broke Functionality

Since the last update, this App stops frequently in the middle of hikes. Notice says I pushed a button or started another App. If this is going to happen every time I get a text or email, it's worthless to me.

Bad update

I've been using Walkmeter regularly since 2012. 4 years and no problems until the recent updates! I've always listened to music through Apple Music or Spotify but now Walkmeter stops in the middle of my runs and bike rides, stops tracking my time and location and says that another app opened or I hit the home button. Uhhh...no I didn't. It always seems to stop after an announcement. App good. Update bad.

Houston, you have a problem

I used to love this app. I am another user for whom the app is quitting unexpectedly. The error message says that I have opened another app or have pressed the home button. Nonsense. It's a bug that seems to have been introduced with a recent update. I've had extensive email correspondence with Abvio tech support but they refuse to admit they have a problem. It's not as though they're not responsive. They are. But they can't fix something until they admit it's broken.

Great app!!

Updated review – dropped to three stars. Walkmeter has developed a problem. Are you aware of it? When I am ready to start out on my walk, I start the app; sometimes it works as intended, and sometimes it quits. The message I get is that I have started another app and they are not compatible, or words to that effect, so Walkmeter has been stopped. But I am not doing that. It is really annoying to do a whole walk and then find out that it has not been tracked or recorded. Could you please fix this? Earlier review - 5 stars I love this app - it's easy to use and very intuitive, and gives me the info I want when I walk.


When I first download this app, it was free. Then after filling up my account info, it asked me to go elite. Then I clicked it. I was just surprised receiving a receipt of my bill for $9.99. What??? Really?!!! This is just too much of an app. When I clicked go elite, it did not tell me the amount of the upgrade. Really? You should be ashamed for asking $9.99. You're ripping off your customer's pocket. This is way too expensive than my medical app for my studies. Hilarious! This app is NOT USER-FRIENDLY !!!!


I started using this app, because it was the only one I could find that gave me an accurate reading of distance, which is my only interest. The other apps that used to give me accurate readings went haywire after a recent update to iOS and started giving readings that showed a fourth or much less of the accurate distance. Now Walkmeter has also gone haywire. Currently I can't find a way to persuade it to give distance readings at all. It wil show nothing but heartbeat. Does anyone know how to change this?

Shuts down

I purchased this app two times both times I end up losing all my data works great when it works they need to get the bugs out of it worth half of what they charge you for it. Because it only works right half the time.

Still figuring it out but pretty good app

I'm still figuring out how to work this app but it's turning out to be a pretty good app, the steps matches what my iPhone's built-in Health Data pedometer says, but I'm still trying to figure how out how to get it to display the same mileage count my iPhone's Health Data pedometer shows, but overall a pretty good app that deserves 04 to 04.50 stars.

Great app

I have been using this app for several weeks. Very accurate and the GPS and mapping are fantastic. I would advise you to try Walkmeter Elite as it is well worth the money

Love this app!

I've been using this app for years and still love it. It is easy to use and highly motivating. I would give it five stars if it would learn to feed/share data with the Weight Watchers mobile app.

Good app

Excellent features. Would have given 5 stars if it would have been easier to install. Would like to use it on my Apple Watch.

The best get's better

Been using this app for about 3 years and it gets better with every upgrade. No sneaky $5 fees (like the app I switched from

Misleading garbage

Why can't we just be honest and upfront about pricing? This is an Apple Watch app but you have to pay a subscription of $9.99 a year in order for it to work with the Watch. That's ridiculous and they should be ashamed. A Spotify subscription is the same price!


Does what it says it will, plus more! Very happy.

Love it

It helps me keep up with time. Mileage. Calories and my choice of paths

Good Stuff

I have been pleased with the progress that this app has made. It is more user-friendly and can easily change modes where before it was not as easy. Keep up good work


Works great!!

Great app.

This is one of the few apps I've given five stars. It has lots of functions, and is highly configurable. The UI is very pleasant and effective.

Great App.

This is a great app for the iPhone. I use it every day. Being able to trace my history is a nice feature.

Use it everyday!

Love this app! Does what it says it will do. Great for walkers/runners foe setting courses.

Great So Far!

I have only been using Walkmeter a few weeks, but have found it close to perfect for my needs. I was at first intimidated by the wealth of information and screens available in the app, but quickly learned to focus on the information that I need. I have also begun to expand my use of the app, and am finding myself using some of the information that I at first thought that I would not. Another reviewer complained of the app being too complicated, but it isn't. It can scale from very a very basic level to a scale that I can't at this time use. It's good to feel that there is more than I can use, than it is to feel like there are things missing. If you walk, run or cycle, I would definitely recommend trying Walk/Run/Cycle -meter.

Too complicated for daily use

Used it in free and elite modes then put it down for a while. Now I find current version 'way too hard to navigate for simple walks. I do not need to do a space shuttle preflight before starting my walk. It has hundreds of features, but you can be lost in them, and since ios10 it does not appear you can get out of many, or reset, or simply start. The ad interruptions do not help. Trying something else

Great App, Fundamental defect

This app calculates about every imaginable statistic about your runs/walks. Elevation profiles, ground track, pace along the entire route, splits, you name it, this app has it. However, unless you go in a straight line, the distance measured and anything derived therefrom will be in accurate. Curved paths, sharp turns, or any deviation from a straight line will result in an underestimate of distance traveled. Distance out can be as much as 3% different from distance back. When the path traveled is overlaid on the ground cultural features(a very nice feature of this app), one can clearly see where the calculated path traveled differs from your actual path. The differences are much greater than expected GPS location uncertainty. The app under samples GPS or over smoothes the readings or both. There must be better choices out there. You also get plagued by ads unless you pay extra.

Very Reliable and Complete ★★★★★

Using this app daily, more than 2 years. Walking, hiking, running, HIIT, and cycling. 97% satisfied 👏🏼 very reliable and complete. Only one problem, does not seem to work with Mio Fuse heart rate monitor. Very Reliable and Complete ★★★★★

Credit where credit is due -- big improvement

With the release of iOS 10 and WatchOS 3, I saw a huge improvement in the performance of the watch app. The synchronization still isn't as silky smooth as Apple's own exercise app, but I doubt any third party app will ever be able to match something written by developers with "inside knowledge".

Walk meter

Use for all my walks. Worksgreat!

App for delivery of ads

If you LOVE ads, and like an app that won't let you get out of the ads, then this is for you. Oh, so you'd like to purchase the app, and get rid of the ads. Well, maybe they will remove them, but, for $10......per YEAR!!!! Lol, Yeah, right!

A exercising partner

Very good application for your walking activity. Save your score for different routes. Beat yourself or your friends. Great.

Does not work on iWatch series 2

Got this app for my iWatch series 2 and it does nothing. When you open the app on the iWatch it just freezes. O. Iron or swipe works. It's completely frozen. Piece of junk app.

Best App I use

Great app. Easy to use....

Doesn't work with Apple Watch

The app seems fine used with the phone although it has been wildly inconsistent with calorie counts. Before IOS 10, would only connect half the time with Apple Watch. Seemed to connect better with Apple Watch after IOS 10 although today, halfway through my bike ride, it shut itself off indicating another app interfered or I pressed the home button (which I didn't). For cycling, best to find a more reliable app.

Nice interface but lacking

Nice when it works which seems to be about half the time. Fails to get gps signal but won't tell you that until you quit. Thanks a lot. The timer starts but it won't record any, or very little, distance. Slow to get a signal when it's successful. Definitely needs some tweaking. Should only be used outdoors with a clear view of the sky.
