    .

  14. 14
    We may want to select "Calories Burned" and "Split Pace." Tap on which ever ones we like but we have to have at least one selected because we want "Cues."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15

    .

    This is depending on if we are going to listen to music as well
    .
    "Medium" is recommended but we can choose "High" or "Low" as well. Again, the checkmark moves on the right-hand side to tell us which one we have selected.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    We have the option to listen to "Preview Voice Cues." When the Cues play, the option becomes grey

  22. 22
    Press "Back" if we are happy with everything
    .

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    We can see that it starts the time
    .
    The app will not take pace or kilometers traveled because the demonstrator isn't running. The minutes are ticking and if we were running, the pace and kilometers would be changing as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Swipe to the left to get back to the map
    .

    We can hold down the "FINISH" button when we have finished the run
    .

  35. 35
    Because the demonstrator did not partake in an activity the application could not provide accurate information, but if there is movement there should not be any problems
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    We can see that it has edited our "calories burned" for today because we told the app that we ran
    .
