Vima - GPS Bike Ride Tracker
By 30 South LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Vima is a GPS based tracking app for people who want to keep track of their biking fitness goals. It is an app aimed at simplicity that allows bikers to keep track of their runs easily without a lot of unnecessary stuff getting in the way.
Easily start, pause, resume, and save a ride without ever getting your phone out of your pocket. Check your distance, speed, time, and altitude from your Apple Watch in realtime.
STATS AND MAPS
Vima tracks speed, distance, altitude, and time. It also gives you a map showing where you have been while you are saving a ride.
When viewing saved rides your route shows up on the map color coded by speed. It shows where you went the fastest (green) and where you were slowest (red).
Don't want to look at the screen every few minutes? You can have the app tell you updates on your progress in set distance and/or time intervals.
Added splits to the history review page. Choose from 9 different distances and see how each section of your workout went.
See calories burned. Set your weight in settings and get your calories burned in real time and on the history page after your run.
Track the distance on your bike so you know when it's time to do maintenance or replace it before problems happen.
PAUSE AND RESUME
Pause the workout to catch your breath or chat with a friend and then resume when you get back to it.
FACEBOOK & TWITTER
Share your workout with your friends on Facebook or Twitter with our easy to use integration.
Vima connects with your Pebble to show you time, distance, and pace on your wrist without making you get your phone out.
The supports both standard and metric units.
If you've read this far, you should definitely give Vima a shot. We think you'll love it, and if there is anything you'd like to see for the app in the future just let us know. We love hearing from our users.
Note: Continued use of the GPS will reduce battery life.
What's New in Version 2.1.4
I like this app a lot for its simplicity and ease of use. I like it enough in fact that I subscribed to it for the year.
Up until now I have been tracking my rides with MotionX GPS (which has a very difficult interface).
There are also some drawbacks to the clean interface. There's no real "deep dive" to be able to get some statistics other apps offer easy access to. You can't even look at the limited graphs in portrait mode.
It's nice that this app is well maintained but there are some weird behaviors with regard to suddenly and inexplicably loosing its place and drawing a straight line of 0 miles over parts of the ride.
I think these bugs are a result of the app just being too judgmental and micro-managey. The problem is that if it's trying to prevent "cheating " then it fails because I've hopped in the car having forgotten to turn it off and I has no clue. This is all with the "auto detect stops" or whatever it's called setting OFF too.
So Far So Good
I just purchased this yesterday but for my first day out it performed beautifully! Only thing I see could be an issue is running my battery down. I might need to keep extra battery backup for safety.
I really appreciate not having to create an account to use. That would be a deal breaker for me.
If you need a simple no frills bike app, this is it!
ITS LIT FAM
This app is super useful. It has combinations of a gps while your riding, your time, distance, speed. When your. Done if you want to keep it hit save. This allows you to go to history and check out what you just did. Avg. speed, max speed, etc. Super useful app, definitely worth 1.99.
