Bibrave Product Review: Weav App

Disclaimer: The WEAV Run app is currently free but I will be receiving a lifetime subscription in January 2018 as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro(ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

If you’ve been in a situation where you’ve been trying to adjust your tempo while running, here’s something new for you. Weav Run is an app that’s fairly new on the market that was developed to adapt songs to your cadence or whenever your foot hits the ground to match the beat to your step. Pretty fancy huh?

Weav itself has beats ranging from 100-240 beats/minute, which works out to be perfect for remixing music. Within the app, you can either have the app detect your tempo and adjust the music based on your tempo or you can adjust the tempo yourself depending on how you feel. Being a few days post marathon, I’m in the adjust your own tempo ballpark.

Indoor vs Outdoor runs: initially, the app was only programed for outdoor recorded runs. Within the past week, magic has been done and there’s now an option for indoor runs on the treadmill…or dreadmill! This is a win for the people of the Inland NW!

Music Availability: currently, 25 songs are available with more in the works. Part of what’s being worked on is comprehensive licensing for more songs. What would be awesome if there was some way for the app to read your own playlists to remix songs already downloaded

iPhone vs Android: currently only available on the iPhone, sorry Android users! The hope is to get the iPhone app ironed out and have an Android app down the line

Recorded RunsI haven’t tried this part out yet, but it definitely works. You also can connect your runs to Strava. Like they say, if it’s not on Strava, it didn’t happen 😉

Subscription: Currently free, though after the new year, will be subscription based

I’ve tried the app a few times on the road and a few times on the treadmill. Be sure to try outside first so the app can detect your tempo. They have some catchy songs already on board, but I think it’d be fun to be able to use the app the mix up your own songs on the app. I feel like it can drain the battery a little bit on my phone, which can limit how far I run with it, but that’s a minor detail. The app can be running and you can be answering phone calls or getting directions, etc pulled up on your phone. I also feel like I have to set the tempo faster to get the speed effect I want, but I’m all for that. Overall, It’s a fun app to have. I’m hoping I can use it for shorter runs and come up with my own interval type thing for the app. There’s also some fun stuff for the app coming down the pipe, that’s currently getting the kinks worked out.

Sound interesting? Join us for Bibchat with Weav on Dec 26, 2017 at 9 EST/6 PST! Also see how they come up with their music here
