Secrets of Success

Using An Android Cell Phone To Track Calories Burned



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.

More Information:

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.

  • just downloaded it and its great!!! a little confusing but its awesome
  • EVO battery life depends on how much you play with it during the day. I plug mine in overnight. Use it to record notes for my night classes & then use the GPS/Runstar app to run after class for about an hour. GPS drains the battery within an hour.

    Compared with my previous phone, the battery life doesn't bother me so much but your own results may be different. - by MEZZED
  • I am considering the EVO, but heard not so good reports about the battery life...what is your experience? Also, is there an app for running cues that can be used over your own music tracks? - by LOGOULD
  • I have spark food and exercise on my Droid. It makes it easier when out to dinner or anywhere to see what is better for me to eat. - by KBROCHE5
