    Best walking/running tracker App?

    MapMyWalk is crud.

    Freezes, doesn't measure correctly. Can do minutes of walking and the distance remains as 0. Then crashes.





    Actual distance is 4km, so lost .8 Km along the way, which screws up the other data.


    What's a good Android App for tracking walking/running?

    Cheers.

    Strava. Free download for OiS and Android, plus PC and Mac. What device are you using to record?

    Zombie's Run is good, also there is one called the Walk.
    the trackings the same old shit but they give you a storyline that makes it mildly interesting

    I've tried many.
    My Tracks by Google was he best one I ever had but they discontinued it.
    (and I got a new phone so, couldn't get it)
    My problem with most of the others is when i go into the jungle, they lose reception under tree cover.
    (MyTracks didn't)

    Lately Strava seems to work the best for me.
    But once they let me down, i go look for another one.
    Probably have tried 6 or 7 since google stopped MyTracks.

    If it's not on Strava it didn't happen.

    Thought everyone knew that.

    Not sure an old blokey with a manky hoof should be jogging vertically, try to find a playmate and stick to the horizontal plane, who knows it may feel as good as posting yourself.

    If you have a newer Samsung just use their App called Samsung Health. I have used it in the past and it works good .

    Fuc that off, Lu, and get yourself one of these.

    Training to heart rate is the way forward - it lets you know how much of a ponce you are, or aren't.

    Installed Endomondo, Strava, and MapMyWalk. Will try to run all 3 simultaneously tomorrow during a quick 4km stretch to see if that crashes me Samsung.

    For a fit man like Slap, that's probably only about 75% of his maximum heart rate. Not too strenuous for him.

    Interesting results.

    Turned on the GPS/Location and opened all the apps about 30 minutes before, so they'd all be up and running by the time I started.


    Even with that, none.... bladdy none, started measuring any distance for the first 400-500 meters.


    Total 6km with 3 stops for upperbody workout.


    Endomondo was the best, recording 5.36km, and slo some nice extra info.






    2nd place was MapMyWalk, which was not too far off with 5.24km measured.




    By far the worst performing was Strava, with only 3.3 km measured. Little over half the total distance.

    That's weird.

    What do you put that down to?

    Surely a phone issue?

    Guess would be possible poor GPS coverage due to trees. GPS worked fine on Google Maps, but none of the apps were picking up any distance. 2-3 minutes of walking and distance 0.0 meters. Kicks in around 400-500 meters.

    Both GPS and Apps were turned on about 30 mins before starting.

    The Apps obviously have some sort of separate connection to the GPS, strava only measured 3.3km out of 6.

    Google Maps was following the GPS no problem.

    My mistake with Strava. It's set to miles instead of Km.

    So:

    Endomondo: 5.36km
    Strava: 5.31Km
    MapMyWalk: 5.24

    Do you have some kind of privacy setting that stops you being tracked near your neighbour's houses, for some reason?

    Lol.

    Not that I know of.


    Digging deeper and Strava seems the best.

    Changed to Km and lists the 'active time', so when stopping every 2km to do upperbody stuff it doesn't track that time. And easy to use history stats.



    That'll do.


    Cheers chaps.
