I’ve been using my wife’s old 2014 iPad to run workouts and it’s just not cutting it. I don’t really want to spend $400 just to do workouts and I use my phone for entertainment and messaging so that’s not an option. What alternatives do you recommend?
How is the iPad not working for just running the TR iOS app?
If you aren’t willing to use your phone, and don’t want to spend $$ to buy a new device, then your only options sound like using something you already have. Do you have a computer you could use? Or for ~$200 you could buy a renewed (used) iPad / iPad mini.
With the recent holiday sales, I picked up an iPad Gen 9 (2021) for $269 at Best Buy and I got a $55 trade-in for my older iPad mini (gen 4) that it replaced. I like having the larger screen from the iPad vs. the mini. That’s working well for me.
I was seeing TR be more sluggish to load on the older mini. Since going to the full iPad, it’s been very responsive.
It’s completely wiped and reformatted but at 8 years old it runs super slow. Like a minute to open up TR. A minute to load a workout. Then when you increase intensity of workout on the +- 100% there’s a five second lag on each per cent. It also will occasionally shut down.
