No. You don’t need a wearable device to play RunBet. All you need (for tracking runs outside) is a phone with GPS and one of the following free running apps which are available for iOS and Android: Runkeeper or Strava (in the future we’ll support other running apps). Once you have Runkeeper or Strava connected to RunBet, we “see” your runs and can automatically credit you. You just need to make sure the app is properly tracking your runs.
Note that if you run indoors on treadmills, you don’t need a run tracker – in that case, you can send photos of your treadmill along with sweaty selfies to our Referees to get credit for your runs.
