- Dozens of alert types (e.g. mile/km notifications; high heart rate; low speed; zone changes etc)

- Map-only mode for when you don't want to start a workout and just need a map

- Maps cover the whole world. No further purchases or subscriptions required for anything
- A breadcrumb trail of your whole route is displayed on the map during the workout

- Waypoints in routes are shown as icons (supports "groundspeak" geocache data)

The app also has many, many more features (far too many to list here!).  

All this is included for a single one-off payment. There are no extra in-app purchases or subscriptions. If you own an Apple Watch and do any form of exercise, then WorkOutDoors is the app for you. Give it a go!

This version of the app supports the Always on Display, which means that the metrics are visible even when your wrist is lowered (if your watch supports it).

This version also includes a tip jar to allow you to show appreciation for the app and to support future development. Tips are completely optional and will not unlock any extra features. The one-off price for the app still lasts forever and all future updates are included, just as they always have been.
