When in 2017 my acquaintance with running began, the first thing I did before my first training was to install a mobile application for running on my smartphone.
As a child, when I ran, I often wanted to have a device at hand that showed basic data in real-time during training. The advent of smartphones and mobile applications has made this a reality for them when during training you can easily find out your speed or mileage.
Now, any of my jogging starts with the fact that the phone includes a running app that allows you to monitor various indicators during the run and collect analytics after training. Therefore, in this article, I decided to share interesting applications for running that I met.
Mobile application from Asics, which is quite simple and easy to use. RunKeeper allows you to track distance, monitor speed and pace, count calories burned, and help track progress with analytics: graphs and data that the app collects over time. If you have a fitness bracelet, the app will display your heart rate during your workout. The program also sends messages about personal records, which can be shared on social networks.
Runtastic mobile application from Adidas, which has everything you need to track running progress: real-time GPS tracking, goal setting, training diary with analytics, integrated music player. For each run, you can choose the goal and distance, as well as set up a playlist directly in the application. You can publish your results and achievements on social networks. During the run, the voice assistant gives hints and reports on successes.
Nike + is packed with all the features that are present in every running application: GPS tracking, statistics (pace, mileage — and total, and for each workout, the number of calories burned, etc.), but offers some completely unique bonuses. The application offers audio guides that will guide your pace, tell a story. You can also receive motivational quotes from Nike top coaches and cheers from friends right during the run.
