Hey Pacers! Have you noticed your Pacer home screen is a bit different? We’ve introduced a new iOS Pacer Home Page that puts all of our features in one place. Don’t worry – all of your favorite Pacer features are still there. We’ve streamlined the interface so that you can easily navigate between features.
Here’s a quick introduction to our new interface.
Pacer Home Page
New Home Page Layout
Our Pacer Home Page looks pretty much the same as it used to! You can still view your steps, calories burned, active time and distance.
We’ve also added a Navigation Bar to the top of the page. This allows you to easily jump between features and return home whenever you want.
You can always click “Home” to return to this Pacer Home Page and view your steps and other data.
GPS Activity Tracking
You can access GPS walk and activity tracking in 2 ways. Swipe left from the Pacer Home Page to access GPS tracking (you’ll see GPS underlined in the navigation bar). Or you can simply click “GPS” on the navigation bar directly to jump there.
You’ll notice that you’ll still see “Home” on the navigation bar even while GPS tracking is active. You can easily click “Home” to jump back to the Pacer Home Page.
You can access Pacer Workouts in 2 ways. Swipe left twice from the Pacer Home Page to access Workouts (you’ll see Workouts underlined in the navigation bar). Your first swipe takes you to GPS, and your second swipe takes you to Workouts. Or you can simply click “Workouts” on the navigation bar directly to jump there.
You’ll notice that you’ll still see “Home” on the navigation bar even while Workouts are active. You can easily click “Home” to jump back to the Pacer Home Page.
Pacer’s Treadmill Mode is now located at the top of the Workout page. Tap the “start” button on “Treadmill Session” to record workouts on a treadmill. Make sure to use Treadmill mode and not GPS activity tracking on a treadmill, as your location won’t change and GPS will not track correctly. Make sure to carry your phone in your pocket or on an armband so that Pacer can register your steps!
Health Data, Check-ins & Walking Plans
We’ve also made it easier to input your exercise, weight, blood pressure and more from the Pacer Home Page. “Input Exercise”, “Add Weight” and “Add Blood Pressure” are now under “Log My Health Data.” You can also Check-in on a goal from this interface as well!
Simply swipe up on your phone (scroll down) from the Pacer Home Page to get to the “Log My Health Data” bar. This contains all of the inputs listed above.
Input Exercise, Weight, Blood Pressure
Under “Log My Health Data,” you can click to log your weight, blood pressure or activity (manually input exercise). Simply tap the appropriate button to log this information. You can swipe down again to get back to the top of the screen.
Click the “Check-Ins” icon to see your current goals and check-in on goals you completed.
Continue to swipe up on your phone (scroll down on the page) and you will see “Walking Plans.” You can click here to view and join Pacer’s walking plans that can help you lose weight, get more fit and more.
Our new design is easier to use and lets you access your favorite Pacer features even faster. We hope that you like it and that you’ll take a few minutes to get familiar with the new button locations.
