Map My Run update brings compatibility with new connected Under Armour shoes

Feb 29, 2016

Under Armour seems to be on a roll.

Aside from having some of its signature athletes selected as the current MVP of almost every major North American professional sport, it also increased its brand presence in the connected heath arena by acquiring some choice fitness apps.

Run with Map My Run is one of these, and the application has just been updated; one of the new features is that it works with Under Armour’s own new connected sneaker, the SpeedForm Gemini 2.

Per the changelog on Google Play, all the changes include:

Version 16.2.1:
Support for UA SpeedForm Gemini 2 Record-Equipped running shoes now in Connect Apps & Devices.
Go MVP today to access our all-new run Training Plans. Custom, dynamic, and tailored to your goals.

It looks like the continued culmination of a well-thought out connected plan.

Run with Map My Run remains free on Google Play; premium subscription options can be obtained in-app.
