ROUVY AR IS OUT OF BETA AND FREE DURING APRIL

YURIY RYASHKO - 02.04.2020

ROUVY apps are temporarily splitting into ROUVY AR and ROUVY WORKOUTS.

Dear Rouviers, 

It has been one heck of a period of time. Hasn’t it? While you were enjoying new AR routes and recently arrived REAL SPRING CLASSICS, the ROUVY’s quickly-growing team behind the scenes was working from dawn till dusk like little warrior ants to make this all run smoothly.  

 

PLATFORM GROWTH

There was no time for a full report like we did last year, but hopefully, later in the spring, we will get that done. Nevertheless, please have a glimpse of what has happened over the winter.  

 

# of available as of March, 24, 2020:

  • video films: 4,000 (!)
  • Workouts: 6,000 (!)

 

# of Indoor activities: 

  • Year 2019:  1,122,007
  • January, 2019 (1-month):  136,002
  • January, 2020 (1-month):  200,253

 

Total distance, km. (ridden on the trainers):

  • Year 2019:  19,522,617
  • January, 2019 (1-month):  2,337,737  
  • January, 2020 (1-month):  3,271,766

 

In the last weeks, we have noticed the extreme increase of interest for ROUVY. We are very happy, on another hand we are sorry for the delayed uploads. We do our best to ensure the great experience and optimize all processes for the infrastructure to be ready for the future!   

 

Thank you for putting up these incredible numbers and making it happen! Without you, ROUVY would not have been able to get to the point where the platform is now. 

 

DIGITAL RACE EVENTS 

For those of you who did not have a chance to see or ride in real-time - first ROUVY Classics were a blast!

You can still watch all of the races on ROUVY’s Youtube Channel: 

 

APP UPDATES AND RELEASES 

On April 1, ROUVY Apps were divided into 2 versions (iOS 5.0.0, Android 5.0.0. and Windows 7.0.0.):

 
ROUVY AR (all platforms:  Win, iOS, Android, Mac, Apple TV, but via BLUETOOTH ONLY)
  • AR Virtual Rides (available in 2K for download)
  • AR/Online Races with the official race branding
  • More than 4,000 filmed routes
  • Unlimited # of Virtual Partners
  • Spectator Mode (yep, now you can find the most crowded route quickly)
  • Custom-fit Avatars
  • Simple UI and improved sensor connect 

 

 

ROUVY AR is the best for Digital Races, Group Rides, immersive experience and enjoyment of the 1:1 branded official race courses. 

 

ROUVY WORKOUTS (Win, iOS, Android with the old UI - just like all in the feature descriptions on rouvy.com)
  • TrainingPeaks Workouts and integration
  • All 6,000 workouts in the catalog
  • Virtual Routes, but:

   - only 3 virtual partners in AR

   - limited experience in Online Races (it’s not optimized for the on-line races with a big number of participants)

 

*Challenges and Career are cross-platform, and will be available in both. 

 

Unfortunately breaking into 2 versions is necessary, as it will take time to move the structured training part and ANT+ support onto the newer apps. We are probably talking about a 5-month period to unite everything into one ROUVY app. Please be patient.  

 

PRICING

  • ROUVY AR was released out of beta today (April, 1, 2020), but will stay FREE during APRIL, 2020.
  • The Standard Plan is set to be removed as of May 1, 2020. So, ROUVY will be from $10/month only from that date. ROUVY WORKOUTS are to stay paid through April and later on, until the apps are united in UI and features.
  • Payments through Itunes and GooglePlay as of April 1, 2020 have been removed. Payments from April 1, 2020 will be available only via www.rouvy.com.
  • All subscriptions acquired earlier via the app stores are to stay valid till expiration. 

 

CLOSEST ON ROADMAP: 

As there were well-deserved complaints about the rider’s avatar and its movement, we have worked hard to improve it and get it right. The plan is to release that in April. ANT+ support and the support for classics trainers in ROUVY AR will be available in May.  In the meantime, an ANT+->BLE adapter can be used.

 

MIDTERM ON ROADMAP: 

Due to the multi-year partnership with IRONMAN ROUVY will work on significant improvements for triathletes. 

 

OFFICIAL RACE PARTNERSHIPS

(signed for 2020 and beyond): 

Tour de Suisse (Switzerland), TORTOUR (Switzerland), KOLO PRO ŽIVOT (Czech Republic), Mallorca Triathlon 140.6 (Spain), XTERRA (Czech Republic, limited partnership) and IRONMAN - \0/\0/\0/ Yes! - and many more race courses and events are in the pipeline. 

 

 

DIGITAL RACES UPCOMING:

  • IRONMAN VR (to be streamed on IRONMAN Facebook Watch)
  • THE SWISS DIGITAL 5 by Tour de Suisse (to be streamed on Swiss Television)
  • Community versions of the above

 

Enjoy your rides, and we’ll see you on the virtual-but-real roads!

 

Sincerely yours,

The ROUVY TEAM

    Will the AR app be updated to allow downloaded videos to be stored on external stoage like the older workouts app?
    • yuriy888 - 16.09.2020
      Yes, it is on the product map but no ETA yet.
  • mdelargy - 13.09.2020
    hi there, yes same question - many videos have disappeared. What happened please?
    Thanks
    • yuriy888 - 15.09.2020
      For the most part, nothing changed, there was just the re-arrangement of categories. Some of the small number "stream-only" videos were removed. If you can't locate or missing any specific one, pls let know our help desk. However, the catalog is extending daily and we are sure you will probably never find time to ride all of the newly uploaded ones.
  • SheldonZA - 12.09.2020
    Some route videos have disappeared!!! What is going on?
    I chose Rouvy for the route videos. After I've paid for a year route videos start disappearing. With all the other app issues, this is disappointing.
    • yuriy888 - 15.09.2020
      There was a re-arrangement of video categories for the highlighting of the best quality ones https://support.rouvy.com/s/article/ROUVY-AR-Catalogue-of-virtual-routes?language=en_US
      • SheldonZA - 15.09.2020
        The routes I was referring to were already downloaded onto my tablet. Is it only "stream only" videos that are affected?
        • yuriy888 - 16.09.2020
          Yes, so your saved routes should not be affected.
          • SheldonZA - 16.09.2020
            Saved routes are affected. I can select the route but when I start the ride, video is not available.
            • yuriy888 - 17.09.2020
              "Saved routes" (for example when saved as "my favorites") may not equal to "downloaded videos", so pls better check your situation with the help desk.
  • Franborrego - 11.09.2020
    Hi, I connect with the speed sensor but it is very slow. Going up it is almost stopped. I think the calculation to reduce the upload speed is wrong. Lost reality. Can you check tus? Thanks
    • yuriy888 - 15.09.2020
      Hi, pls drop a message to our help desk for the check.
  • laurens - 24.08.2020
    Hi, I just signed up for a year and find the two apps quite confusing. A video downloaded in one has to be downloaded again in the other etc. From this blog post I understand they will be combined into one app. When will this be?
    • yuriy888 - 24.08.2020
      Hi, the unification is scheduled for this winter. But if you use different devices you will have to download for each be separately anyway.
  • EstebanR - 20.08.2020
    Hola, para cuando compatibilidad con el bkool smart pro 2?
    • yuriy888 - 20.08.2020
      Hi, it works with some ROUVY apps via BLE. Pls turn to our help desk with the details of your setup. With ROUVY AR 1.0.1 you are also welcome to try to connect it via ANT+.
