    App Review: Polar Beat

    Fourth on my list for the App review was Polar Beat. I have a polar loop activity tracker and thought it would be interesting to see how they integrate. I tested the app for 31 days and ran a total of 212km with the app – well some of my races and runs I did with Strava as well – just because the app bombed out a few times. The app was ok. The GPS Tracking is accurate but has failed me a number of times. I have attempted to review this app before, it also failed me a few times and it’s quite sensitive – I got into contact…

    Running App Review: Runkeeper

    Second on my list for the App review was Runkeeper. I have never heard of the app before starting to review it but saw that it was used quite often. I tested the app for 31 days and ran a total of 103km with the app – well maybe even more because it had some issues and didn’t track all my kilometers. I was impressed with the app. The GPS Tracking is accurate but has failed me 3 times. I was presently surprised of the fact that it does not only track roads, but also continued tracking me as I go off road. This is not something I expected from…

    Running App Review: Strava

    So I started the App review with Strava. I chose to use Strava Specifically for Feb knowing that Feb has less days than other months. I knew that it would be a good reliable app, so using it for less days would not alter that outcome, whereas some of the apps might need more days to test. I downloaded it from the Google app store for free. It works on android and IOS Phones. I was very impressed with the app. I love the GPS Tracking, it is very accurate and has not failed me at all. I also love the fact that it does not only track roads, but…
