MyFitnessPal is very happy to announce a new partnership with Google Editor's Choice app Endomondo. The Endomondo Sports Tracker app turns your mobile phone into one part personal trainer and one part social motivator while you are running, cycling, walking, skiing, kayaking… heck, even roller skating!
Whatever your sport, Endomondo makes your experience even more exciting and lets you track your data and monitor your performance over time. Now with the MyFitnessPal partnership, exercises logged on the Endomondo app will sync to your MyFitnessPal account so the calories you burn and the duration of the activity will automatically be logged to your Exercise Diary.
What sets Endomondo apart from other fitness apps is the live audio coaching and motivation feedback it provides as you workout. This feature also allows you to add a social aspect your routine. One example is the beat-a-friend feature – when competing with a friend, the Endomondo audio coach will provide up-to-date feedback on how you’re performing against them.
Another feature from Endomondo that makes your workout more fun and social is peptalk. When your friends see that you are exercising, they can send a short message to you through the Endomondo platform. These messages are then read aloud to you as peptalks a few seconds later. Both the beat-a-friend and peptalk features help keep you motivated to complete your fitness goals.
Endomondo strives to make your workout more fun by adding a social and motivational dimension easily through your phone. And now that the exercises you record through Endomondo automatically sync to your MyFitnessPal Exercise Diary, enjoying yourself while getting fit is even easier!
Endomondo comes in a free and a PRO version ($4.99). The PRO version includes extra features like Interactive graphs, interval training, beat yourself, time & calorie goal and more.
