“So ‘naked running’ apparently means no music, no watch, no GPS… Now they tell me”

A “naked run” ("naked running") means running without electronics—no iPhone, iPod, watch, etc. It does not mean running without clothes (although the context of the term should be examined).

“#nakedrunning” was posted on Twitter by coq on April 3, 2010. “Noon-time sans music. Naked ears! Maybe I should go watchless too?! I can do this. #nakedrunning” was posted on Twitter by shayla dvorak on June 11, 2010. “Naked running - no ipod, watch, garmin or anything!!” was posted on Twitter by K. Moore on July 1, 2010

“Did a naked run… meaning no electronics” was posted on Twitter by Joram on April 28, 2010. “First naked run in a while (no iPod, no GPS)” was posted on Twitter by chapmanrunner on May 29, 2010. “5 mile naked run tonight. No music no gps” was posted on Twitter by Ryan on June 4, 2010.

Of course, there are “naked running” jokes. “OK, so ‘Naked Running’ apparently means; no music, no watch, no GPS, no electronics… Would have been nice to have known that an hour ago!” was posted on Twitter by The Dad Joke Man on July 9, 2021.

Running Naked: The Effects of Watchless Running
Posted by P. Mark Taylor on August 30, 2013
(...)
Most runners feel naked without a timing device.  That is why I refer to an untimed run as a Naked Run.

It is not the watch or GPS device that we miss.  What we are missing is data, the opportunity to analyze our running and make informed decisions about our progress and the effectiveness of our workouts.
