A letter from our CEO about the future of the Milestone app:
Hello MilestonePod app users,
As you probably know, Zwift teamed up with Milestone Sports and the MilestonePod technology just over a year ago. We did so to support our mission of getting more people, more active, more often. In short, the MilestonePod technology offered a low-cost and easy way to connect to the Zwift Run platform.
Over the past year, we’ve rebranded the MilestonePod as the Zwift RunPod and optimized the technology for the Zwift Run platform. We’re pleased to see so many runners using our Pod running in Watopia. As we continue to evolve our business, we’ve decided to focus our resources on the core Zwift run and cycling platforms—and the products that enable you to connect to both with ease.
To this end, Zwift will discontinue support and development of the Milestone app as of August 31, 2019. The app will continue to function as it does currently, but we will no longer dedicate resources to further development. Someday, it will no longer function as it does today. You’ll still be able to sync runs beyond this date, but given the ever-evolving technology landscape, we can’t possibly say how long that’s going to last. To be clear, this is the same inevitability whether you’re syncing a MilestonePod or Zwift RunPod to the Milestone app.
The MilestonePod and Zwift RunPod will continue to connect to the Zwift platform as they do today. If you currently use the MilestonePod or the Zwift RunPod to run on Zwift, rest assured you won’t have any issues related to this change. If you have not tried Zwift, we invite you to download the game and go for a run. Zwift Run is currently free and has proven to be an effective, fun, and social way to train. The game delivers training tools for runners of all levels that complement your outdoor training and an active community for support. You can learn more about running on Zwift here.
If you are interested in downloading your MilestonePod app run history you can do so by clicking on the Main Menu -> Settings-> Export Run Log to Excel. An email will be sent with a .csv file that contains summaries of every run you have synced to the MilestonePod app.
Thank you for your use of the Milestone app. We hope to see you on Zwift soon!
