For Immediate Release

Potsdam 5th May 2022 - The new komoot app for Apple Watch merges komoot’s world-leading route planning tools with a best-in-class navigational experience on your wrist. Once synced through the komoot app, routes planned in komoot display directly on the watch interface ready to be navigated.

The komoot app for Apple Watch: Navigation and Stats

Using komoot with Apple Watch

The komoot app for Apple Watch homescreen makes it easy to navigate komoot Tours. The watch interface displays options to view planned Tours, record a Tour or visit the app settings. In a nutshell, here is the full range of functionality users can expect from the komoot app for Apple Watch:


Find planned Tours

Users can find their 20 most recently planned komoot Tours directly from the Apple Watch face. The Tour list displays sport type, planned distance and the offline maps status of each Tour. Within each Tour, the route summary is displayed by means of a static mini-map and users can click to display the static full-screen map. 

Navigate Tours to stay on track

Users can easily activate navigation mode to enable turn-by-turn voice instructions, as well as adjusting the visible stats. If exploring somewhere without signal, it is possible to save the route offline directly from the watch before starting the Tour. 

Seamless Tour syncing

The komoot app allows users to waterlock their watch, as well as pause, resume, or finish their Tour. And each time they do, the information will automatically be updated in the komoot app itself.

Record the adventure

Users may wish to record an activity that doesn’t have a planned route. In this case the komoot app offers a selection of supported sports and a customizable stats view. When Tours are completed, users will see a summary of their Tour stats and benefit from Apple Health integration via the iPhone app.
