Weav Music: Music Evolved
Weav Music, a music tech startup, released the running music app Weav Run. This app seamlessly adapts a song’s tempo from 100-240 BPM to match a runner’s steps in real time – without losing the integrity of the song. Running in sync with music helps athletes of all levels run faster and farther, and it can also help prevent injury by improving form.
