Runtastic PRO is by far one of the most sought-after running and fitness tracker app for that athlete in you, and being an iOS or Android user, you can now grab the title free of cost to track your athletic outings from now on.
For those who are unaware of the prowess of this app, the title lets you keep track of your running, cycling, walking distances and consequently computes your speed, calories burned, elevation changes, and packs a host of other features as well. All of this is obviously done through the use of location services, and more precisely, involves GPS tracking for accurate tracking during a run or a walk.
Runtastic PRO presents all your runs in a mapped out history, and even includes a feature called ‘Voice Coach’, which aims at providing audio feedback and suggestions based on your activity and is fully user customizable. Another neat feature packed in the PRO version of this tracker, is ‘Auto Pause’, which automatically puts your running session to a standstill when no movement is detected.
To augment your effort and activities, Runtastic PRO makes sure you know what the weather, temperature, and sunrise / sunset timings are before you head out for a run or if you are trying to schedule one.
With iOS 8 introducing the Health app, Runtastic PRO can dump all its tracked data into Apple’s offering which allows for a more centralized access to all your health and fitness trackers compatible with iOS.
