MacWorld Expo 2010: Abvio Fitness iPhone Apps

I thought Abvio’s Runmeter, Cyclemeter, and Walkmeter iPhone apps deserved Beatweek’s Best of Show Award at MacWorld Expo 2010 for their innovative way of motivating individuals to exercise. I simply loved the features they integrated in the 2.0 versions.

Are you a fitness enthusiast? If you enjoy running, cycling, or going for a walk, try out Abvio’s new line of fitness apps — Runmeter, Cyclemeter, and Walkmeter. These exercise apps use the iPhone’s GPS to track and visualize exercise activities as well as help improve athletic performance and health. Each of these apps are similar to one another except for the fact that they come pre-customized to suit the needs of its user — the walker, runner, or cyclist.

Some of the great features of Runmeter, Cyclemeter, and Walkmeter are:

  • An iPhone-centric approach, no Web site accounts, passwords, or ads required.
  • Ghost racing against previous runs, walks, and rides along a route.
  • On-device calendar of all runs, rides, and walks.
  • On-device graphs of pace and elevation.
  • On-device manual entry of runs, walks, and rides.
  • Exceptional battery conservation.

Some of the new features that were demonstrated to me at MacWorld were pretty innovative! The features in the 2.0 versions include:

  • The first apps to support use of the iPhone’s earphone remote to start and stop the stopwatch.
  • The first apps on the iPhone to speak Twitter replies using text-to-speech technology.
  • The first GPS apps to include a Twitter client for reading and composing tweets.
  • The first GPS apps to share runs, walks, and rides using Google Maps, with links as simple as http://j.mp/5ouyIC
  • The first GPS apps to use fuzzy logic to filter GPS locations for more accurate GPS location reporting.
  • The only apps among our competition to allow full export of all your data.

    Great article! I should get it because I'll be doing the Ragnar Relay (http://www.ragnarrelay.com). It's a 180 mile relay run from Santa Barbara to San Clemente. What better way to document the event! And I currently use FitNio, but RunMeter looks superior!
