Selecting the Best Voice for your Training
Personally, my very favorite new feature in the iOS apps is our new coaching voices, and it takes just a minute to make it great! Trust me on this one, it is worth the update. Everyone can use Advanced Voice.
I just love Karen’s Australian voice, though many are big on Alex or even Samantha. There are dozens to choose from in all kinds of languages, all within a few taps:
General > Settings > Accessibility > Speech > Voices
Using the Advanced Voice Type, there are many voices available to use, even “enhanced” versions of many of them = Male, Female, you name it. Then, in your app, make sure you’ve chosen Advanced in the Voice Type section.
Activity Options (Gear) > Voice Options > Advanced
Whether you love it 10X more like we do or just appreciate the features and benefits it unlocks, we encourage you to set up a nice pleasing voice to help coach you through your workouts. It’s worth it!
You really notice the difference when you start turning on new Advanced Audio Coaching features. Get workout totals, coaching during your structured workout routines, use real heart rate zone names and more!
