Runkeeper App Tip: Track Treadmill Runs with Stopwatch Mode

Stopwatch Mode in the Runkeeper app is a great way to track treadmill activities and more.

We know bad weather conditions can prevent you from getting outside for a workout, or maybe you prefer to run on a treadmill, either way, the ASICS Runkeeper app has got your back. While we’re best known for our GPS-tracking functionality for outdoor activities, our Stopwatch Mode feature allows you to keep tabs on your activity on the elliptical, treadmill, in the weight room, and more. Stopwatch Mode is a great way to track your progress over time and still get credit for all the mileage and time you’re putting in indoors. Because if you didn’t track it in the Runkeeper app, it didn’t happen, right?

Fun fact: Some of the Guided Workouts in the app can be done using the Stopwatch Mode.
