Part coach and part dance partner, Cruise Control produces magical running experiences. It adjusts your music in real-time to control your running and keep you on track to hit your target pace, heart rate, or cadence. We call it Cruise Control because it works a lot like cruise control in your car - you set your target, and the music will keep adjusting its rhythm, just like the car adjusts its throttle, to get you to your target and keep you there.
But Cruise Control is way more fun than pushing a button in your car! Imagine flying down the trail at exactly the speed you want, with every beat of every playlist song synchronized to your footfalls. It feels like your favorite band is right there with you, timing their kick drum to drive you faster and further. When we use it, we always get "Cruise Control Moments" - irrepressible smiles that stretch from ear to ear, outbursts of singing, and even some high-fiving of random dog walkers. Yeah, you can look a little goofy, but it sure feels great.
Cruise Control uses your music to control your running in four different ways.
Pick a target heart rate and go! As long as you match your steps to the rhythm of the music, the music will drive you to your heart rate goal.
Cruise Control scans your iPhone’s music library and analyzes each song's tempo (in beats per minute or "bpm"). Only the songs with the right beat are used to transform your running experience.
Cruise Control uses its patented algorithms to speed up or slow down each song in real-time. Don't worry - as the tempo increases and decreases, the music’s sound and pitch remain unchanged - no Chipmunks here!
Cruise Control continually logs your time, location, distance, calories and speed so you can train and track your improvement. Post workout analysis shows each stat plus a map of your run.
Cruise Control accurately measures running pace and cadence using the iPhone’s built-in sensors. You can also pair with ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitors and stride sensors for even more running data.
