Best Fitness App!!
I cannot workout without this app! This has been the most amazing thing I have implemented into my training program. I can see my heart rate intensity and ignore my rating of perceived exertion. I have made so many improvements with heart rate training and I get competitive with myself. I can keep track of my best sessions too. I enjoy that there is GPS tracking while I run to estimate my min/mi. My information uploads to the polar personal trainer site. I have recommended this product to many people and they too enjoy this with their workout. Make sure you heart rate monitor is compatible with the app and phone and turn your Bluetooth on. I let this sit on my arm band and I can have my music playing. This was worth every penny!!!
One of the Best Work Apps
Best work-out tracking app as long as you don't have the Pebble Smart Watch. I would given it 5 stars. I know they have there own watches but I like reading my text without pulling out my phone. Many other apps work with my Pebble.
3.5-4 star rating
I give this a 3.5-4 star rating because I cannot get it to connect to my heart rate sensor. I have tried it multiple times and it connects to my watch so I am not sure what the problem is but other than that I love this app!!
