Lafayette, CO (PRWEB) July 6, 2010
Lafayette, CO, July 6, 2010 -- Peaksware, LLC and Digifit announce improved fitness and health data upload capability enabled by Digifit™ Ecosystem, Digifit's new universal app suite for iPod® touch, iPhone® and iPad™. Winner of the best consumer app in the MobileApp Challenge, the Digifit Ecosystem’s growing app family includes iCardio™, iRunner™, iBiker™, iSpinner™, iPower™ all of which feature TrainingPeaks mobile inside.
Digifit’s apps for iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad are the only apps that integrate heart rate monitoring with other fitness and health sensor tracking in one central repository. For example, iRunner works with ANT+ foot pods and heart rate monitors to track pace, distance, speed and heart rate while running indoors or out. Garmin and Adidas are two leading brands that sell ANT+ foot pods and heart rate straps. For a complete list of compatible devices see Digifit interoperable ANT+ sensors at the ANT+ website.
“Tracking fitness and training on TrainingPeaks is easier than ever with the simplicity and convenience of Digifit’s apps,” said Donavon Guyot, CEO of Peaksware. “Now members can track their fitness and health data on their iPod touch, iPhone and even iPad, then upload their data to their TrainingPeaks account with little more than the tap of a button.”
With TrainingPeaks mobile included in all of the Digifit apps, members can upload workout and health data and access TrainingPeaks’ mobile site from within the app. The mobile site, available to all members for free, was designed to allow a member to view their scheduled workouts and meals and record their workouts, meals and daily metrics. It is not intended to be a full replacement of TrainingPeaks.com, but rather a “just enough” tool that gives you access to your account and lets you keep schedules and updates while on the go.
The enabling technology for Digifit to work with ANT+ sensors is Digifit™ Connect, an accessory for iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad that receives signals from up to eight ANT+ sensors simultaneously. Like the popular Nike+ iPod receiver in the Nike+ iPod Sport Kit, Digifit Connect is a receiver that uses the dock connector to connect and transmit data. In contrast with iTMP’s first-generation wireless bridge known as SMHEART LINK™, a Wi-Fi device that needed recharging, Digifit Connect is exclusively ANT+ and pulls power directly from the iPod touch, iPhone or iPad. Because ANT+ is ultra-low power wireless, drain on the battery with proper power management is negligible so users can ride a century and still have plenty of talk time left over at the end of the ride.
“We are honored to be working with TrainingPeaks, the industry leading software for workout data recording and analysis,” added Michael Williams, CEO of iTMP, makers of the Digifit Ecosystem. “By providing the easiest and fastest upload of a wide variety of training and fitness data, with Digifit, TrainingPeaks is more readily accessible to everyone.”
