Kills my phone battery

It uses up battery life so fast it’s not even worth it. And if I’m trying to use a music app like Spotify at the same time it causes my phone to crash every single time. It’s not very user friendly, which I could live with. But not the battery thing. I just downloaded Walking for weight loss and it’s super easy and doesn’t kill my battery.

Fatal Flaw

I downloaded the app and signed up for the subscription. While I like the app, the lack of a viable Apple Watch app is a deal killer. My walks are in the cold and my phone is buried in layers. I have to have the watch. I’m deaf, so Siri is useless. Ever get a workable watch app and I’ll reinstall this app in a heartbeat


I have used this app for years, and suddenly it starts with warming up and then running and then walking and then running etc. All I want is to measure the distance and the time of my walk or hike. How do I get this back?

Very Pleased

My experience with Walkmeter has been excellent. I had a little challenge figuring out how to get the music controls onto the stopwatch page however a VERY prompt answer to my email guestion by Fran Taylor resolved the issue. Great tracking and excellent data display .

Don’t waste your money

This app has a ton of features that may make it worth the cost (for Elite), but all I wanted to know was how fast I was walking - i.e., my pace. This app consistently records incorrect mileage and pace. I’ve walked a route that is 4.1 miles for the last 6 months. Walkmeter Elite has recorded the distance as 3.6 to 4.5 and everything in between. It tells me my fastest pace is 8 minute mile when I know that there is no way that is true. I never sprint, jog or run on my walks. My knee won’t allow it. So I will be ditching Walkmeter Elite and going with Garmin.

My main watch app

I love this app before I got a watch. Since the watch, it has become my most cherished monitor of my life and travels. Every where I go I try to find a long walk to take with this app following me. Afterwards I reflect on the walk with the map and can vividly recall bay to breakers in San Francisco, canal walks in London and the north of England, a beach in Dubai and so many more. The watch part help me monitor progress while the phone records the map and detail. Great fun and lovely reflections

Heart Rate Problem

I’ve used this app for several years, but I upgraded to Elite when I saw the heart rate feature within the app, and display on my iWatch. This worked wonderfully for a week... now the heart rate isn’t captured at all. I know that the HR still works on the iWatch, but not within the app. I’m very disappointed. I love walking, listen to music, and getting my pace updates from the Walkmeter app. I’ve tried everything to fix it. After a couple weeks I got it to work for one day. I love the app, but I won’t keep the Elite, if the HR doesn’t work.

Apple Watch

Still no Apple Watch complication?

No heart rate tracking?

What I want is essentially the Apple Watch exercise track plus decent elevation tracking, because I mostly hike on bluffs for my workout. This does decent elevation tracking! But while it has a screen for tracking heart rate, it stays at “—“ the whole time. Looking at the recording afterwards my heart rate shows as a flat 100 the whole time, and my calories burned is like 18. Without that heart rate, this offers less than the free app and isn’t worth the price. I’ve gone over the Health settings a dozen times and can’t find a permission I’ve missed. Am I crazy or does this really not track heart rate?

Very inaccurate

There are a lot of things I like about this app, but it’s complete lack of accuracy isn’t one of them. It’s very inconsistent. My wife and I each had it installed on our phones, and for a recent walk we took together, it recorded 1.13 miles for her and 3.21 miles for me. Unusable.

Great app and Support

Walkmeter gives me more information than I can possibly use and is very easy to configure. Uploads data to ActivityTracker and Strava if you choose. Had a problem of my own doing, Fran in Abvio Support almost immediately walked me through solutions, and followed up to the end over several days. Can’t praise enough.

Nice but woefully inaccurate

First, this app is amazing. Love the different walks and all the metrics you can view. It is fast to launch and looks beautiful. I have this on my iPhone XSMax and the distance is off by up to .5 miles and the same route is different by .2-.4 miles. I also have a Garmin Fenix 5X that I am comparing and the Garmin is always the same distance. I have also used other fitness apps on this phone and they agree with my Garmin. At this point, I would recommend a different app if you want true metrics and distance . I will not be upgrading to the pro version.

Thank you!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the latest update. I listen to audiobooks on my walks and always hated it when the announcements were spoken “over” the book narration. I got a pleasant surprise on my walk this morning when the book narration paused for the announcement!! Perfect!! Love this app!!

Gone bad

It no longer maps my walks or shows a distance it wants me to link it to Facebook which is why I ditched the UnderArmour app I am a private person and do not care to share this data

Pedometer not working

****** UPDATE - switched from four stars to five stars because of the excellent customer service which not only responded to my question, but also made a suggestion which fixed my problem. This has to be the best customer service I’ve ever experienced. Thank you so much. ***** I’ve been a faithful user of this app for years so I decided to pay to upgrade. The pedometer (the main reason I wanted to upgrade) has never worked. Seeing the great developer response on here along with a support website, I wrote to that hoping for help. No response. Maybe I’ll receive one on here. I’d really like to be able to use it.

Too many updates

Why is it so difficult to beta before releasing?

Great for Tracking Progress

I hate walking the same route every day, so this app keeps both distance and time so I can chart my progress and better know how long my hikes should take before reaching my campsite.

50-50 chance it will work

App crashes and doesn’t work consistently. Frustrating when trying to get a gage of distance and activity.

Not a standalone app.

If you buy an Apple Watch, you’ll still need to lug your iPhone around to use this app. If you’re going to make an Apple Watch version, guys, make it standalone ... otherwise, what’s the point?

The Best work out app

I have had several walk/run apps over the years but I just came across Walkmeter and it’s fabulous! It’s crisp and clear with bright numbers and easy to follow directions. But what I found was amazing is their customer support. I’m a left brained person who needs to know all the nuances of an item. When I had a few questions I emailed the company and within an hour or less I got an answer. Since then I “bothered “ them a few times but now I’m a pro at the App and by the way it works without a hitch. I totally recommend the App

Distance is inaccurate

Have had this App for years without a problem, now it is underestimating distances by a much as a half mile and has different ascent and descent levels even when I walk the exact same route up and back. I don’t see any access to customer support. Please respond.

It does everything I need

I have been using Walkmeter for a couple of years now and I’m very happy with what it does. It provides a great deal of information for walks, runs, and hikes, even in the free mode. I’m happy to pay the additional (and small) annual fee for all of the additional abilities provided. I have never had a problem with this app and I really enjoy using it.

Paid for app and now!

I paid for the app and now is asking for a subscription? Greedy developers, don’t waste your money on this scam

Great when it works

I have been using this app to document my daily walks for a couple of years. I have NEVER had a perfect Activity month due to either an app crash or the Activity app doesn’t update when I hit the end button. I have already contacted the app people who, of course, blamed the Activity app that came with the iPhone. That still doesn’t explain the crashes. It seems just stopping to take a picture is enough to do it. It’s frustrating knowing you did the walk, but not getting credit for it. Therefore, I am switching to another means of recording my walks until these issues are resolved. Review update: after corresponding with Ronni from support we figured out the issue. I was trying to do too many things at one time so now I only have the app open that I am currently using. Presto, no more issues. The app has been working flawlessly since.

Use to be great

So I’ve used this app for years. I even signed up and still am. But that will all be ending with the hijacking of another great app by Google. Now even with premium you now get to deal with google ads. So sad to see this happen

Not for 9.99

Ok app but $10/ year really does not get you much. Most people will do fine with free version. Having a fee renew yearly and app doesn’t really get any better. What’s the point ??? I noticed the increase of ads in free version. Good yearly fee would be $4.99 definitely not $9.99 worth.

Way too many ads.

This was a pretty good app to use, however it’s now inundated with ads that can’t be closed unless quitting out of the app, which has ruined the experience. It’s a shame, but not worth $$ annual fee to upgrade.

Worked Okay

I used this app in a corn maze (it was a large corn maze) and it worked out pretty well except it kept trying to correct the paths while we were walking. Like, it refused to accept the possibility of a curved trail, or that we walked in a large circle. Sadly, we did not get the chance to see how accurate this app could draw out the Alice in Wonderland maze the owners of the farm made, but the satellite imaging did help get us out of the maze with the sleeping toddler, which we did appreciate. Imma keep this app and test its accuracy another day... I wanna complete the maze... I’m seventeen, I get to be a child.

Totally incorrect location tracking

An app does NOT need Background App Refresh to track location in the background, and they are not doing continuous background location updates correctly either as the blue status bar reveals by appearing at the wrong times. I don’t know what they want Background App Refresh for but it’s very suspicious. I’ve deleted the app.


This is a great app I don’t leave home without it.


I love it. It keeps me on track

Decent except for heavy map averaging

I first tried another app, but it insisted that you start the “free” 7 day trial of the paid version first. At least this app does not do that. The free version offers quite a bit including speed, map, keeping historical data, weekly monthly, etc running sums. My one beef with this app is that it does an overly heavy averaging of the gps location. As I am walking, the dot on the map keeps spot on. There is a blue trail that jumps up to the dot every 4-6 seconds, so that is the frequency of the position stored. When I go around a corner or turn around and head back, the blue line starts shifting for the next 4 or 5 “updates”. So it is averaging the points and overwriting data. The path ends up cutting through yards and even houses. There are a couple of settings affecting smoothing of the path, but no way to turn off the averaging. Since my current spot on the map is exactly right, I really don’t understand why the app needs to do any averaging. (I’m glad my car’s guidance app doesn’t or I would be driving across a lot of parking lots.) I would much appreciate a choice to turn off the averaging and a choice of a higher position data record rate (1-2 seconds)


This app is broken after the 13.1.1 update. Pace and miles are off.

No longer works with Apple Watch

I just upgraded to the iPhone 11 and now for some reason the app on my Apple Watch no longer connects to the iPhone app. Thinking I may have to ditch this app.

Not accurate

I’ve been using the free app for several years and felt good about its accuracy. It now gives me different readings in distance for the same route. It is no longer smooth on its updates on mileage. I may walk nearly a whole block before it changes and I know from the past it is wrong. It is as if it loses the satellite. I thought maybe it was not accurate anymore because they want me to upgrade to the pay version. It is having the opposite effect. At one time, I loved this app


Thais app is trash


Walk meter is the best I’ve used it for years I highly recommend it. It has helped me loose 77 lb. in the last 6 months and my doctor could not be more happy. He said this has reversed my type 2 diabetes. Now I will still use the app for maintenance. Love this app !

Great App

It’ll do everything except wash the socks of the anal retentive.

My Best Walking Buddy

I have been using this app for over a year and I am very happy with the way it works, walk it has to offer and most importantly on how accurate it is.

Distance not working

After positive experiences, the distance suddenly stopped working even after I reinstalled. What’s up with that?

hate this app

hate this app, it charges and doesnt allow you to delete it

Very accurate

I read the negative review a decided to review it with my stand along GPS and all features are accurate. Five stars.

Mr. Swartz

I find walkmeter to be a double edge sword. In early stages of training the systems is too difficult to understand all the option available. Then, once you get familiar you find out how useless this technology can be. In order for a runner or athlete to improve they need reliable and dependable data. Walkmeter provides neither. Without alerting user Walkmeter just expired. So, tracking data is interrupted. This confirms the company just wants your money. Plus, no one to talk to. I’ve had Walkmeter for several years. Conclusion: not accurate, no training, sensitive and affected but power lines, etc. bottom line is: a marathon runner explained to me. A runner knows and don’t need to be told they’re doing right or wrong.

HATE the new layout and color scheme.

I have been using this app since 2015. It is t the most accurate, but close enough. I HATE the new color scheme. I can’t see it when I’m walking. Everything’s is so cluttered. It looks like a 5 year old put it together. Can you still make the cleaner, but older ... easier to read, older layout available?

There are better apps

This app takes longer to load than most other apps with similar features. I've had it for a few hours, and it has crashed twice, ironically asking me if I want to sign up for the elite version on reboot. The ”lap” feature seems to even be not available in the free version.

Wrong mileage

I walk the same path and the mileage varies depending on how fast I am walking.


Sorry, I just can’t recommend this app. I e lost count of the time when using it that it stopped tracking my walk. Hard to enjoy you walk when you have to constantly keep your eye this app.


Used to be good but now way too many ads, some of which will not close unless you exit ap. Too expensive for no ads.

Great app but...

This app is great - it tracks your distance and speed, and shows where you’ve gone on the map. The only frustrating thing is that when you open the app it takes forever to start as you have have to wait for the advertisement to load.
