SMART­PHONE FIT

HWM (Singapore) - - Learn -

Not ev­ery­one wants to fork out money for a fit­ness track­ing ac­ces­sory, and one of the best al­ter­na­tives is your smart­phone. In fact, be­fore fit­ness track­ing ac­ces­sories caught on with the gen­eral pub­lic, most re­lied on their smart­phones and some fit­ness apps. The fit­ness apps track your speed and move­ment but the prob­lem is, not many want to bring along their smart­phone when they go for a run (es­pe­cially if their phone is a large Note 3). Oth­ers may find in­com­ing texts, calls and emails a dis­trac­tion to their work­out. Here are two pop­u­lar apps.

RunKeeper

One of the very first run­ning apps to ap­pear on a smart­phone, RunKeeper is a GPS-based app that has been re­fined since its re­lease. It pro­vides in­for­ma­tion about your pace, dis­tance cov­ered as well as calo­ries burned within a sim­ple and fuss-free in­ter­face.

Zom­bies, Run!

If you're bored of the usual run­ning app, Zom­bies, Run! of­fers a more unique ex­pe­ri­ence by cast­ing you as a zom­bie apoc­a­lypse sur­vivor who has to run away from zom­bies while col­lect­ing sup­plies for your base.
