Unlock your Run with the Android Smart Lock feature

Supported OS: Android 5.0+
Set up complexity: Easy
Instructions link:
Requirements: BT paired device you can run with

Tired of unlocking your phone during a run to check your stats, change music or podcasts? Setup Smart Lock with your Bluetooth (BT) heart rate monitor/BT headphones or similar device so when you pair it you're unlocked for your run.  Don't forget to turn the BT device off when you're finished so the phone's security is restored.  I use this with my BT heart rate monitor which works really well, clip it on to the chest strap and it's activated which auto-unlocks my phone, un-clip and it's deactivated and my phones security preferences return to normal (PIN lock).  Give it a go!
