Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Digifit, developers of the original heart-rate monitoring apps featuring iCardio, iRunner, and iBiker, announced today workout-sharing partnerships with top mobile-fitness platforms including Strava, RunKeeper, DailyMile, TrainingPeaks, Lose It! and Fitbit. Digifit users can now push personal workout stats from within the app to any of these partner portals for easy access and convenient storage. Those interested in using Digifit as their workout app and heart-rate monitor of choice can use the data-sharing feature to preserve exercise history and send any new information to their legacy mobile or cloud-based storage portal.
“With thousands of fitness and health applications available these days, consumers want to explore options but feel captive to where their data is stored because complete, intact workout history is really important to them,” says Dean Hovey, CEO and President of Digifit. “Digifit’s ability to interact with other quality health and fitness platforms makes it easier for users to collect data in one place and offers flexibility in choosing which apps to use for their various exercise, health and nutrition needs.”
Running multiple fitness apps simultaneously to access desired features while maintaining a complete workout history is no longer necessary as more quality mobile and cloud-based health and fitness platforms enable data sharing. The open platform trend, as adopted by Digifit, lets consumers decide how they gather and where they store their information. They now have more flexibility to choose the best of breed for both apps and platforms--making mobile fitness tracking more personal and accessible than ever.
“I use a couple fitness applications for different needs and it seems each one offers something better than the other,” says Giovanni Masi, Digifit’s resident fitness expert and Spinning instructor. “I find Digifit’s heart-rate monitor to be far superior to any others I’ve used, but I also like using Strava’s route challenges. By enabling workout sharing, I can now get all my data from Digifit into Strava, which makes reviewing exercise history and progress overtime easier and more convenient as it’s all in one place.”
Digifit’s iCardio, iRunner and iBiker apps are available for download from the App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad or download iCardio at Google Play for Android.
Digifit offers truly engaging health and fitness solutions using sensors and wearable technology integrated with mobile devices and the cloud so users can track activities anywhere, indoors or out, with a focus on heart rate training and monitoring. Founded in Santa Barbara, Digifit was the first app developer to bring heart-rate monitoring to the iPhone, and now boasts a suite of fitness-tracking apps for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices. Dedicated to developing innovative applications, grounded in science and powered by technology, Digifit helps people develop healthy habits and lead healthier, happier and longer lives.
