At work, I was recently introduced to Endomondo in the Android Marketplace. It’s claim to fame is being able to track people as they walk/run. In case you’re not familiar with these type of apps, you click a start button in the app, do your thing with your phone attached to your belt, or in your pocket or otherwise on your body, then when you’re done you click end and it draws your path out on a map and tells you how far you went. This is much more reliable than pedometers that can’t accurately account for differences in stride etc.
Funny thing is, with as much as I’m loving Fitocracy, I’ve found most of my co-workers are already on Endomondo. You can sign up at Endomondo.com. I like the auto-sync and the calorie calculations based on weight etc. Now if only it integrated with Fitocracy.
Endomondo and Fitocracy each have their benefits. I love Fitocracy’s level-ups, encouragement of doing small things like taking stairs instead of elevators and their points system. Endomondo does everything but the points system, and has more than enough extra functionality to make up for it. So I’m going to just learn their clunky interface and be there instead of Fitocracy, which it seems no one else in my social circles is using.
