FAQ

I like traX for tracking my fitness, do I need to pay for it?

No. traX is for free, no in app buys or advertising is planned. Nevertheless you will be able to donate like buy me a coffee in a future version of traX.


I did not allow location tracking on setup, can I change that somewhere?

Yes.

  • Start a cardio activity, when the activity starts the system should ask you for location access.
  • If the dialog does not show up, go to your iPhone settings, search for traX and use the Location menu to allow access.

I did not allow Apple Health access on setup, but I want traX to sync my activities to Apple Health. Can I configure that?

Yes. traX asks for read data which is your body data plus write data which are your activities.

  • Open traX profile and activate Synchronize with Apple Health. In the upcoming dialog check all access you want traX to give.
  • If the dialog does not show up, go to your iPhone settings, find Data Protection, open traX, here all access priviledges are shown, update them as desired.

  • I created a workout with several exercises, when starting it the first exercise does not start immediately, but shows the list of all exercises. How can I set immediate start?

    In Settings. Open Settings, on first tab in Activity Settings check Activity Quickstart.


    I noticed that activity start and end time difference is more than ahown in activity summary, does traX calculate this value wrong?

    No. There is a setting allowing you to either stop activvity timer between single exercises or keep timer running. Open Settings, on first tab in Activity Settings check or uncheck Auto-Pause after Exercise.
