smartracks athlete - the smart running app

Get it on Android! Get it on iOS!

Do you want to get serious with your running?

You train smart, you train well. Tracking your step count, step frequency, distance, speed, and time allows you to see where improvements can be made and when you should be careful to prevent injury.

The SmarTracks Athlete app gives you the accurate running data you need. Whether you need it for every 5K or every 5 meters.

Connect with your track

SmarTracks Athlete is a running app for short-, medium- and long-distance running.

You can easily think “This is just another running app”. You would be mistaken.

Yes, this app does provide the usual GPS-based tracking. But that is not all. This app allows you to connect with your track. The app has unique timing technology when using it on a SmarTracks Location. All over the world, tracks are being built with the timing technology of the future. With this app, you can use that timing technology for free.

Try it on iOS or Android!


How does it work?

You can use the SmarTracks Athlete app anywhere you want to run, whether it is on your club’s running track or on the streets.

For long-distance free running the SmarTracks Athlete app uses GPS-tracking.

For on-track running on a SmarTracks Location, SmarTracks Athlete communicates with the track’s invisible, built-in Timing Gates to give you an unseen timing precision. This makes it uniquely suitable for training short- and medium distance running.

Simply put the smartphone at the height of the lower back, and the app will measure all information you need to perfect your training. After your run, you see your results immediately.
