Frequently Asked Questions

The Basics

How does Radar Pace work?

With smart technology and an app, Radar Pace collects and analyzes personal performance data and delivers real-time feedback, instruction and motivation based on performance. Radar Pace responds to user questions, allowing athletes to communicate with the system in a live, natural way during workouts

How does Radar Pace track performance?

Internal sensors, including an integrated gyroscope, accelerometer, and barometer/pressure sensor monitor what you’re doing and how you move.

Although Radar Pace does not require external sensors to coach, ANT+™ or Bluetooth® Low Energy enabled sensors can enhance the coaching experience by providing heart rate, cycling power, cycling cadence and other metrics

How does Radar Pace coach me?

Helping you improve your technique and build endurance, strength and speed, Radar Pace tracks your compliance to the workout plan and adapts to your performance in real time. It tells you what to do next and holds you accountable by automatically adjusting to make up for missed workouts.

  • Dynamic training program: Tell Radar Pace about your training goals and it will assess and develop a custom running or cycling program for you no matter your level – beginner, intermediate or advanced.
  • Real-time coaching: Using internal and external sensors that gauge your environment, Radar Pace calibrates to you and gives personalized coaching feedback so you can adjust your effort as needed. By giving you reminders from time to time, it can also help you achieve the most efficient technique.
  • Personalized approach: Going beyond just age and weight, Radar Pace calibrates training based on your performance – it learns about you over time and uses that knowledge to provide dynamic, custom training that continually adapts to help you improve. The coach will monitor your running/riding for about 120 minutes before customizing the training zones of your effort level. This customization will guide you during subsequent sessions.

Training Programs

Can I create a single program that lets me train for both running and cycling?

Radar Pace offers a training program focused on just one sport at a time, but you can supplement your training program with freeform rides and runs. These “freeform” workouts can be performed whenever you choose, and are not part of a training program.

How can I use Radar Pace for both running and cycling?

Decide which sport you want to focus on the most for improvement, and create a training program for that sport. Then use Radar Pace’s customized features, such as the freeform runs/rides program, for an all-encompassing training regime. (At any time during a training run/ride, you can choose to do a freeform run/ride. Launch it through voice command or by clicking the app.)

No, Radar Pace creates custom training workouts that dynamically adjust to your performance. It uses knowledge from decades of sports science, combined with the insights of world-class coaches and athletes.

Can I integrate with other apps like Strava?

Yes, you can upload and share Radar Pace data with other web interfaces such as Strava, Garmin Connect, etc. (File Formats: CSV, FIT, GPX, TCX)

Is it possible to get a custom workout on the app?

Not currently. However, you can use the freeform run/ride feature to track a workout of your choice, and get answers from the coach about your metrics.

How can I change the workout days in my training program schedule?

Once you create a training program, you will not be able to change your workout days. Doing so would require you to start over by creating a new training program. However, changing your workout days might not be necessary – if you miss particular workouts, Radar Pace will dynamically adjust your future workouts by prioritizing the most important ones needed to achieve your goals.

If I cancel my program, will I lose all my workout data?

No, Radar Pace will save all your previous workouts.

What happens if I miss a run or a ride?

Radar Pace will dynamically adjust your training program to make up for missed runs or rides, and keep you on track.

What happens if I miss too many workouts?

If you miss too many workouts, Radar Pace will notify you and ask you to create a new training program.

What if I need to move my race date?
