Add running cadence data from smartphones

I see some of my friends who use those fancy Garmin watches get cadence data for their runs.  I am sure that with all the accelerometers in these smartphones (and smartwatches) we could easily get cadence data that way.  I'd imagine this would be a reasonably easy feature to add and would be another great insight to our runs.

 

What do ya say guys?!

  • I would have expected that the motion sensor can be used in order to measure ones pedal rpm. i use my phone in my side pocket and counts the steps each time i workout. Could you please add this to the features so we have rpm without an extra sensor?

    Thanks for your time!

  • Yes think this could be add quite easily and not for just running, would probably work with other sports cycling, rowing etc.

  • On my Android device under Sensors > Internal Sensors I see an option for Running Cadence, which I presume is being provided by Google Fit. Anyone know what this is about? I don't see it documented anywhere. I just began using the app but haven't seen any cadence data so far.

  • Sports Tracker also has a free running cadence feature for iOS and Android devices. Runkeeper's average cadence for an activity seems rather accurate but the cadence chart is usually junk. I run those other apps at the same time as Strava in my phone mainly because Stava doesn't have cadence feature but by doing so I'm probably draining the battery of my phone significantly faster (what could be particularly a bad thing for long activities).
