We’re very excited to bring you an update on our new release! We have entered the iOS market and have a Beta version that will be ready for testing by current active Metron Users who have enrolled into one of our Running Programs. You will be notified via intra-platform messaging if you fit the criteria when the build is deployed. We are currently in development of an Android App for our Running Programs as well.
I know some are probably disappointed that this current update is not for our Gym Type programming, but please read below to see what new features you will get to have when each one of these experiences becomes available on iOS, Android, and our very own wearable, in the near future.
