    I use my phone to record my runs. Since the update to Nougat I'Ve a problem that the apps close automaticly after a while. When I was on MM there was never such a problem. On 31 dec I ran for about 2h and it worked great. Then on 4 january the app stopped during a run after about 20min. The next run I tried another app, but the same result, it stopped after a while.
    The options in battery managment are both off.
    Anyone having such a problem?

    Having this exact same issue on the latest Nougat update with Endomondo to track exercise with a bluetooth LE heart rate monitor (Polar H7).

    Often it will run for 30 mins often it will run for 5-10 mins and then automatically close out.

    To bad that I'm injured at the moment so I can't try out because I've heard there is a solution.
    Open yor running app, go into the recent screen and then lock your app (close the lock at the sign) . That should to the thing. Maybe you can try it and let me know because I can"t run for a few weeks with my runners knee :(

    Also want to note that I've tried clearing cache from recovery, deleting app data and cache, deleting device cache. All failed as well. Also, have tried uninstalling and re-installing the app in question and it also failed.

    Does it stop when the phone is "idle" for 20 minutes or it doesn't matter? I currently can't run due to some health issues, but I took a couple of walks with Runkeeper and it worked fine. Walks being walks, I played with the phone occasionally, skipped songs and checked notifications, so that's why I'm asking if it makes a difference.

    I'm gonna be so pissed off if this starts happening when I'll be able to finally run again. Here's to updates!

    Same problem here with my OnePlus3, official Nougat update OxygenOs 4.0.2.
    Using RunKeeper to track my half-hour run, no other apps actively running.
    When run is complete and I check my phone, in 1 out of 2 cases RunKeeper is not running anymore, even when battery is more than half full after the run. Very annoying !

    Extra info:
    - battery management is disabled
    - already tried a cache clearing from recovery menu
