Best sprint interval apps?

#1
So I know runkeeper is good for long distance stuff.

But I am looking for apps for the following niches:
- interval training
- city running (apps that factor in time spent at traffic lights etc)

Any good apps for this?

Hi @sureshsGOAT,

I haven't used an app for intervals. Typically, I'll use a Garmin (or GPS watch) for my interval training. In the past, I had used just a standard watch with specifically measured distances (or timed effort).

I will use the Strava app here and there. That is usually because I forgot to charge my GPS. I took a look in the Strava app settings. It does have an Auto pause feature & distance notification for mile or half mile. I don't know if that would work for what you are thinking.

Regarding city running, The entry level Garmin 45 does have an auto pause feature. To be honest, I typically don't rely on my watches auto pause. I know some people that do, but I'm in the habit of starting and stopping my watch by hand.

What kind of intervals are you running?

I use an app called intervals, if you upgrade to the pro version I believe it is at most $10 a one time charge you can create interval workouts based on time and distance. You can also set up a goal pace so it will let you know to speed up, slow down or in range. It does have an auto pause feature.
