Product Summary

Under Armour’s MapMyRun is a run-tracking app that also tracks a variety of other activities like hiking, cycling, and walking. MapMyRun is available as both a free app and an upgraded subscription program called MVP. 

The free version of MapMyRun allows you to track runs and other types of workouts. You can also log your strength training routines within the app to keep all your exercise information in one place. While running, the app will provide updates on your run; you can customize which information (splits, calories burned, pace/speed, current, etc.) you are given and how often it happens. You can also turn the audio updates completely off. 

The app has a few suggested strength training and mobility workouts and drills to help your running. Many people’s favorite feature is the Routes feature. The app will save routes you frequently use. Additionally, you can also search for routes on your computer and send them to your phone if you’re searching for somewhere new to run. 

The upgraded MVP plan offers customized training plans for a variety of goals such as Learn Running Basics, Complete a 5K, half-marathon, and marathon. You can also create your own plan based on your own specific goals. MVP also has a Live Tracking features where friends and family can follow your route in real time to help you stay safe. 

MapMyRun is compatible with over 400 different devices like Garmin and Fitbit. If you have Under Armour HOVR shoes, you can get detailed information on your running form such as stride length, foot strike angle, and ground contact time. Premium members will also gain the ability to look at your training data in-depth. You can analyze your runs broken down in custom splits, get detailed heart rate analysis, and utilize more detailed audio coaching. 

MapMyRun has mixed reviews. Most customers used it to track a wide variety of activities and not as a dedicated running tracker. They did wish they could filter their stats by activity type. Apple Watch users complained of some difficulty getting the app to sync with their watch and that it drained their watch battery. Some MVP users also found the app to be glitchy and that some of their workout data would change after a run was completed.
