Using An Android Cell Phone To Track Calories Burned
Members Were Sparked
I recently upgraded my phone to the HTC EVO phone which is an android based phone. If anyone else has an android based cell phone, you can download for free, programs to help track your workouts. I've been using Runstar. There are others out there, like CardioTrainer or SportsTracker.
It doesn't have to be an Android based phone, you might have an iPhone or a Palm Pre/Centro. There are applications for those phones too but I don't know if they are FREE.
Using Runstar & the GPS in my phone, I track my workouts, time, distance, average speed, and a google map of my route.

No Pedometer - There's an App for That: Cardio Tracker
I had my Omron pedometer stolen (sniffle) so I was on the fence about buying a new one or a BodyBugg and then I searched on my Droid Cell Phone Market and found "CARDIO TRACKER". This App uses GPS to track your route whether your walking/running & tracks miles, time, calories burned, & it's FREE!!!
Many of us have phones that can access the web and or apps that connect us to spark people. USE THEM! i've found that i can track my food more efficiently when i have an easy portable way to do so. it's helped me to break off my plateau by tracking my food. 2 birds with 1 stone.
the 'best' phones for this are Android or Iphone as they have app capability, but other internet ready/able phones can do it too.
