Starting with app versions 2.2.0 (iOS) and 1.2.0 (Android) and 8.87 firmware, the RunScribe app will provide a notification when batteries need replacement or recharging. The app will also tell you how many hours you have run on your existing battery. RunScribe works with both a disposable CR2032 battery, which offers ~14 hours of run time, or a rechargeable battery which offers ~4 hours of run time.
* RunScribe records each footstep. If you have completed your run, remove RunScribe from the cradles when you sync. This will eliminate inadvertent recording and reduce battery drain.
* CR2032 battery quality is significantly different depending on the manufacturer. The best we’ve tested are Energizers, which provide ~14 hours of life
* Rechargeable batteries offer ~4 hours of run time. It is good practice to charge RunScribes between runs.
