iOS app calculates incorrect running stats

As part of a Couch to 5K group I’ve seen a lot of results from iPhone and Android users. The iPhone stats are always incorrect.

In the early weeks, the iPhone version seemed to count the walking intervals (ie. not the 5 minutes at the start & end) as part of the running distance. The Android app did not.

Tonight, on week 5 day 3 (5 min. walk/20 min. run/5 min. walk):
The Android app correctly recorded 10 minutes of walking & 20 minutes of running.
The iPhone app recorded 5 minutes of walking and 25 minutes of running!

Let me know if you’d like some screenshots - I can currently get anything up to the end of week 5.


The Android platform and the ios platform have ample of smart applications and the fitness gadget developers are doing good in their ecosystem. For more details go to https://netgears.support/netgear-genie-support
