Nike+ Running, the sportswear giant’s fitness tracking app, finally offers integrated Spotify support thanks to a new update.
The software bump means you can now soundtrack your run around the park with songs directly from the music streaming service, whether it’s your own chosen albums and playlists, or something curated by Spotify itself.
The latter includes Nike+ Running Club playlists, which were first seen back in May and offer the chance to select tunes based on your speed and your goals.
On top of that, a new tool called Pace Stations lets you select the kind of music you like and the pace you’re likely to go at. It will then pick 100 tunes to match the beat of your run.
It’s a clever idea, but one which is currently restricted to the iOS version of the Nike+ app. Those looking to try it out can get a free seven day Spotify Premium subscription without inputting any credit card details.
That extends to sixty days if you hand over your card number within a week.
Nike is following in Adidas’s footsteps, with the German sports gain already offering paced playlists via its Go fitness tracking app.
The update is available to download from iTunes now.
