I mainly use the running app and 7 Minute+ app, but I have used all of them and give a little bit about each app here. I hope this helps!
If I could suggest an improvement to the makers of Moov, it would be to beef up the supporting apps to allow users to program workouts more individually. As it works now, users must manually change the levels during the workout. I'd like to be able to set up a workout at the outset, so, for example, I could walk at level 3 for two intervals, then move up to level 5 for three intervals, then up to level 6 or 7 and then back down to end my walk at a slower pace. It's no big deal to do this manually, but it is a bit distracting and should be easy to implement as a function of the app. Given the nature of the device and the extant features of the app, I wouldn't be surprised if this individualization feature doesn't appear sometime in the near future.
So first, the PRO'S - Moov as a 'running coach' works EXTREMELY WELL when it works (more on that later). I have been trying "free run", "efficient runner", "push your limit" and other running programs on the My Moov app and they all deliver. It's amazing how Moov can tell so much about my form from just a single Moov sensor around my ankle. Within weeks i've managed to increase my cadence, run faster, run farther, more efficiently, run with a better form and reduce the impact on my knee just from wearing Moov when I do my regular runs. In fact, even when I run without Moov, subconsciously I keep thinking of the Moov running tips and reminders - it's that good!
Now on to the CONS - First, the most frustrating part is, Moov continues to disconnect during runs. I don't know if this is an Android specific problem or if it affects iPhone too, but I use Android HTC One M8 phone, and I never had any BT issues before Moov. When using Moov during my runs, it would continue to disconnect with BT, and on average during a say, 30 min run, it would disconnect 4-5 times. There's nothing more annoying when you are running and you are trying to pay attention to your form and it tells you "Moov is disconnected, press Moov to re-connect". The thing is on my ankle, so I gotta stop running, press the button, keep running again only to hear it still isn't connected and I gotta stop and press the darn button again. This happens when I'm using my BT headset, or even when I'm on a wired headset. This is really, really frustrating,
On top of Moov run, I have also tried the Moov 7+ min toner for some cardio / strength training exercise, and that is even MORE frustrating. In between exercises the app would actually freeze. So I may be holding a position to start some pushup's, and waiting for Moov to tell me to start and it freezes. This keeps happening after SW upgrade too. Also, no matter what I do, it tells me I fail at Plank when I am already holding my body completely still ... unless I am to believe I can't even do plank for 5 sec's now I don't see why it would fail me.
All in all, despite its flaws, I see Moov as a worthwhile purchase because it is a great coach for running dynamics. I just wish Moov can fix its problems in its app and BT connectivity.
