Runners, cyclists, walkers, and hikers can all now take advantage of the fact that Trackometer and the iPhone have converged the three devices.
Edmonton (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
Spin Technologies Inc. announced today the release of RunningMap Trackometer, an iPhone application for runners and outdoor enthusiasts to track and measure their activities.
Beautifully designed and with a rich feature set, RunningMap.com is a best-in-class route mapping site for runners, cyclists, or walkers, allowing users to plan their training routes ahead of time or record them after the fact. RunningMap's new companion application Trackometer utilizes the GPS feature of the iPhone to enable users to record time, distance and routes real-time during workouts.
"When I make my training schedule for the week, my workouts are set by distance or by time," comments Matt Dance, an avid runner and Trackometer beta tester. "I might plan a longer run to build endurance, or set a distance goal such a 10km and work on pace. Trackometer's simple and intuitive interface makes it easy for me to track both in real time and keep a log of the routes that I've completed. "
Taking advantage of the iPhone data connectivity, completed routes can be uploaded to RunningMap.com from anywhere, anytime, and with no cables to connect. The portable GPS feature in the iPhone records all the details of each workout including the elevation profile. Uploaded routes are stored on RunningMap.com so they can be reviewed for future reference or shared with friends. Planning for hilly or flat workouts has never been easier.
"I used to take my iPod, stopwatch, and phone when I'd head outside for activities," notes RunningMap founder Randy Troppmann. "Runners, cyclists, walkers, and hikers can all now take advantage of the fact that Trackometer and the iPhone have converged the three devices."
Trackometer is available now on the iPhone App Store.
