Samsung announces Nike+ Running app for Gear S


Samsung and Nike this week announced a new Nike+ Running app for the recently introduced Gear S smartwatch. Using the 3G connection in conjunction with the built-in GPS, the app provides wearers with real-time statistics, mapping, progress, and more. If you’re looking for an app to track pace, distance, and other variables this is the one. What’s more, you’ll also be able to share your run via Facebook and other social media.

In the midst of a workout, runners are able to easily view running metrics including distance, pace, heart rate, NikeFuel earned, and time, by simply raising their wrists. The app is also equipped with a built-in music player, allowing runners to select music in a playlist with a quick tap.

The Nike+ Running app will be pre-installed on the Gear S when it ships later this year.
