Pocket Trainer: 5 Healthy Lifestyle Apps

 

Nike training club

App Store reviews are unanimous: "Please make a version for men!" And they are right: Nike Training Club is designed primarily for girls. It is enough to choose a goal - harmony, strength, tone and so on - and the user gets access to a really huge number of exercises, each of which is accompanied by high-quality photographs or videos. As a reward for completing tasks, the application gives not only a variety of badges (almost like in Foursquare), but also access to exclusive exercises from famous athletes like Serena Williams and stars.

Runkeeper

One of the oldest mobile applications of this kind, RunKeeper is able to energize even novice runners: everything is very convenient and attractively done here. The user only needs to indicate what exactly he is going to do (running, snowboarding, biking, skiing), and click the Start button. Based on the data obtained from the phone’s accelerometer and GPS module, the application captures all training details: route, distance, average speed, time passed, etc. The user can choose goals - for example, run a total of 50 kilometers - and monitor their implementation. And share the results with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or on the RunKeeper website. The application itself is free, but you need to pay to gain access to additional functionality: for example, to display routes on a map or analyze your progress in detail.

A good alternative is the slightly less functional, but convenient Nike + Running app. Just be careful: some users complain that the program does not correctly process data from GPS and underestimates the distance traveled.

Cardiio

Cardiio’s description is very much like drawing apps like “turn your iPhone into a real X-ray scanner”: a non-contact cardiomonitor that uses the image from the front camera of the smartphone to determine a person’s heart rate. In fact, the basis is the scientific development of the Massachusetts University of Technology: since blood flows to the head with every heartbeat, the application monitors subtle changes in complexion. Based on the data received, Cardiio not only determines the pulse, but also gives comparative information and calculates the estimated life expectancy. True, the most accurate result is obtained only in conditions of maximum illumination.

Owners of Android smartphones can be advised by the Instant Heart Rate application - although the principle of operation is simpler there (the user must press a finger to the device’s camera), but the measurement error is lower.

Lose It!

Not the most attractive aesthetically, but a functional application for accounting for absorbed food. Lose It! allows you to clearly plan your diet by setting daily limits on the number of calories you receive. Each meal should be entered in the diary: the application kindly calculates the calorie content of the dishes eaten. As a result, the user receives motivating messages in capital letters in the spirit of "This week I exceeded the set limit of 364 calories."

Endomondo sports tracker

A universal sports application for windsurfers, runners, cyclists, swimmers and other lovers of all kinds of outdoor activities. Endomondo can import data from various sports accessories, for example, the popular Fitbit pedometer, which clings to clothes and records data about your movements. The basic version is free, but many options like graphing or running the application with a low battery charge will still require an additional couple of dollars.
