Pro is a new layer of visual analytics that will enhance your Smashrun dashboard. We could say it's revolutionary. We could say it's game changing. But we think it's better if you just watch a short preview of the Pro map and judge for yourself.
There's always been this gap. A gap between the experience of your run and the way you see your run through your data. It's like running your fastest sprint ever, but a single line graph doesn't quite capture it.
The truth is simple. With each and every run, you get better. You learn, and get smarter. Sometimes, it's hard to say how that last run mattered. What would've been the difference if you skipped it? We built Smashrun Pro to show you that difference.
Drill down to the highest level of detail for any given run. This is your GPS data in the way it was always meant to be seen. Highlight fastest segments, splits, pace buckets, cadence, elevation gain/loss, steepness/grade, heart rate zones, and SPI.
There's nothing like this. It's fast, intuitive, beautiful, and extremely powerful. You can use this route map to answer questions like "how fast was my pace if I excluded all the portions that were hills?" or "what was my average heart rate during the fastest 5k of my half marathon?" or "how fast would my overall pace have been if I excluded all the parts where I had to stop to wait across the street?"
The Pro Map is the most comprehensive view you'll ever have of any run. If you've ever been curious about the relationships and interdependencies between your pace, HR, hill grade, and cadence, this map will provide you with that insight.
Training Bands visualize every second of every run to show the total time spent running at specific pace buckets, HR zones, and steepness/grade. We take each trackpoint recorded by your tracking device and create a stacked area graph of your different training bands. Then, we plug that data into a tool that allows you to see patterns in your training.
Imagine going for a 15km run that includes a warm-up, a few pauses, a couple of fast segments in the middle, and an easy cool-down. If you did the same run 4x every month, how do you quantify how hard you're actually training? Would you log your 15km run as a generic long slow distance?
With Training Bands, you'll know when you're pushing your limits and when you need to rest. It's especially useful when looking at intervals to see how much time you're running at peak speed and how much time you're resting. Until today, it would've been impossible to ever look at your run data at this level of granularity.
Pace Trends plot your runs based on a combined measurement of your performance and efficiency. The chart then highlights your fastest runs and draws a linear regression curve over the selected time frame to fit a trend line among those runs. It will also calculate your average weekly performance change and its effects on your current 5K time!
Every runner ultimately wants to know the answer to the question, "Am I getting faster?" Part and parcel to becoming a faster runner is building up mileage, covering more distance. As you do more long runs, your average pace might appear to go down, but when your pace is normalized across various distances, you're almost always improving!
Pace Trends lets you compare every distance as equals. You can see how your fastest 400m repeat compares to your 50min 10k, or your fastest mile vs. your first ever marathon. It looks at your entire training history and essentially creates a performance curve specific to your level of fitness.
It also lets you isolate your training cycles and see your gains for a given period. It's common for runners to fall in and out of a training schedule or even take planned breaks so it's nice that you can look at your run data from when you resumed training onwards!
Progress Towards Goal calculates the most direct path to reaching your distance goals. If you're behind, it tells you how much you need to run on average, on any given day or week, in order to get back on track! So you can run when you can and rest when you need to, because Progress Towards Goal will do the math for you.
Suppose you set a goal of running 300km in 30 days. If you ran everyday, that means you would have to average 10km/day to hit your goal. Let’s say it’s the 16th of the month and you’re only at 140km. That means you’re behind by 20km from the most direct path to your goal. You’ve got 14 days to catch up.
How would you calculate the distance you would have to average between today and tomorrow, or this week, so you can catch up? What if you decide to include a day off each week? Progress Towards Goal automatically calculates every possible path you can take on a daily basis, so you can keep adapting to your changing schedule.
Getting out there isn’t always easy. Part of the challenge with running is staying motivated. Stats might hold you accountable to your training progress, but it’s badges that will keep you going. With Pro, you'll unlock 40 badges awarded for:
