Device and Data Compatibility

    • Device Support and Integration for Lumo Run

      iOS

      Lumo Run is compatible with iPhones 5s and above, running iOS 9 or later. The Lumo Run App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and is free of charge, but requires a Lumo Run sensor to function. 

      Android

      We currently do not support Android devices.

      GPS watches and 3rd party devices and software

      3rd party hardware (e.g. GPS watches) and other running applications will be supported in the future. This will allow runners to sync their GPS data with their Lumo Run data so that runners can record their pace, distance and route even when they run without their phone.

    • How accurate is the Lumo Run data?

      For GPS data, which is your location data, Lumo Run is only as accurate as the data provided by your mobile device. The Lumo Run sensor does not track GPS, it uses the GPS data provided by your phone.

       

      GPS data is used to create the map of your run, your distance and your pace. The accuracy of all these metrics will depend on your mobile device. Your Lumo Form metrics are independent of your GPS data accuracy. Therefore if your pace and distance seem off (e.g when you are running on a treadmill or indoors where GPS is often inaccurate) your form metrics will remain unaffected.

      For more info on how we track running form metrics, check out our Lumo Science page: https://www.lumobodytech.com/science-of-lumo-run/.

    • Can I use the Lumo Run on a treadmill?

      Lumo Run can be used on a treadmill, however the GPS function will display as a single point on your map because you appear stationary. Therefore your route, distance and pace will therefore not be as complete.

      Your Lumo Run form metrics will remain unaffected by a change in your GPS function and therefore you will still be able to get information on your running form:

       

      Cadence, Bounce, Braking, Drop and Rotation.

      Please ensure your "auto-pause" within the settings is turned "off" while running on your treadmill, to ensure the "App" doesn't think you are stationary and therefore "pause".

    • Can I listen to music while I’m using Lumo Run?

      Yes, you can listen to music, podcasts, or any other audio files that you may want to access while running. If Lumo Run audio coaching is on, the audio tips and updates will be delivered by dimming the audio of your primary audio source (e.g. music, podcast) and resuming previous volume once the Lumo audio message is complete.


      You can also choose to turn off Lumo Run audio coaching at any point before or during your run (see how to Turning Auto Pause On and Off).
