As announced already at WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference, Runtastic will be among the very first companies to launch app updates for iOS 10 and watchOS 3. You only have to wait a few more days to check out new Runtastic features on iOS 10. Here’s a sneak peek of what we’ve prepared for you:

Start your fitness activities with Siri now
Siri is your personal assistant on your iPhone. As of now, you’ll be able to control your fitness activities with Siri: “Hello Siri, start a run!” starts a running activity with your Runtastic app. Want to pause, stop or resume it? Just tell Siri. “We’re especially proud to be part of such an awesome project right from the start,” said Florian Gschwandtner, Runtastic CEO and co-founder.
