APP ofthe WEEK

VOLT (IOS and Android, free with in-app pur­chases)

Gloucestershire Echo - - TECH NOW -

ANY­ONE us­ing a smart­phone or tablet to pur­sue a health­ier life­style is hardly short of help­ful apps.

So, what makes Volt any dif­fer­ent? It looks and feels like a reg­u­lar work­out app, but the unique sell­ing point is un­der the bon­net – a so­phis­ti­cated AI sys­tem that tracks and mon­i­tors your ac­tiv­ity, and al­ters your train­ing plan ac­cord­ingly.

You just tell it what you want to get fit for – whether it’s just gen­eral train­ing or a spe­cific sport or ac­tiv­ity, and it’ll de­vise the per­fect train­ing rou­tine, which con­stantly evolves based on your progress.

It’ll even make sure you max­imise per­for­mance for a given day – to be at your best for the big game. And there’s more. Volt can de­vise train­ing plans for teams, which will get a group to be at their best in one of more than 40 sports. A seven-day free trial is avail­able. Af­ter that you’ll need a sub­scrip­tion to carry on and that will cost £8.99-a-month. You can save if you sign up for longer.
