 Nike+ Run Club
 Runkeeper

ūüĎČ I do not use any sports apps:¬†Download¬†Strava.¬†This easy-to-use app allows you to record all your outputs. Then connect it by following the procedure indicated by here.

I practise  swimming.
To add your lengths in the pool, you must use and connect a water-resistant watch or wristband model that allows you to register the swim. A sports app that only uses your phone to record your activities is therefore not enough. Here are the compatible brands for the moment:  TomTom,  Polar,  Health Mate,  Fitbit,  Garmin or  Suunto. Please connect it by following the procedure indicated by here. However, not all their models allow swimming to be recorded.

You don't use a water-resistant sports watch or wristband? Good news: you will soon be able to manually add your session to our platform.

I practise ūüŹč other activities.
On United Heroes, we now take into account the distanceless activities that you can record on your sports app (boxing, yoga, weight training, rowing, etc.). Good news: you will soon be able to manually add your session to our platform.
