RunScribe automatically starts recording once you start running (140 steps per minute or 70 strides per minute), which allows you to run without a mobile phone. During a run session, RunScribe captures every step you take.
Sometimes that includes a short stop at a stoplight, a pause between intervals, or a run/walk session. On 03/29/2016 we updated the run detail view to account for these scenarios: all runs are broken into elapsed time - with a subset of running time, walking time and stationary time.
Timeout is set to 250 seconds.
