Written Android App Review
This is the review I’ve been waiting for! Let me just tell you how excited I am to get the chance to tell you about the SportsTracker Pro Android App! I know, I know…..it’s just another Android app. But really it’s so much more.
Let me explain. About 3 weeks ago my husband and I, along with a few friends, signed up to do a 5k. I was super excited, but also terrified. I would be one of only two girls on the team and everyone else was an avid runner. It became really obvious that if I didn’t want to hold my team back then it was time for me to kick it into high gear.
Enter the SportsTracker Pro Android app. Read on for a detailed Android app review.
This Android app has revolutionized the way I work out. Now, instead of just going out for a run, I can track my entire course and stay on top of exactly what I am doing and where I can improve. Then, I can “watch” my run later and see the areas where I am struggling.
And results? Well, its been 3 weeks now and I have cut almost 20 minutes off of my 4 mile time! (I started out pretty dang slow!) Can you see why I am excited about this Android app? Let me show you what else SportsTracker Pro has to offer and I think that you might just get excited too!
First, the features! Now, this Android app is packed! Seriously packed with more features than we could ever hope to cover in the span of a single review. So let’s just hit the high points to give you and idea of the scope you are looking at.
My favorite feature of SportsTracker Pro is that it offers you real time feedback during your workout. Start by setting the type of workout that you are about to do, i.e. walking, running, biking, sailing, skiing things like that, then hit go. SportsTracker Pro will instantly begin tracking your movement and letting you know exactly what it going on during your workout.
When I run I love that I always have a read out on current speed, average speed, duration and distance. This allows me to push myself and always try to be just one step ahead of the previous day’s run.
My next favorite feature of SportsTracker Pro is the maps. Once you finish your workout you can go back and look at an actual Google Earth type shot of exactly where you were working out. You will see your track highlighted on the screen and can even have it replayed for you while SportsTracker Pro shows you your pace for each segment.
As I said, I’ve been using the SportsTracker Pro Android app for 3 weeks now and have not had a single issue with functionality. The Android app has not frozen a single time and it does not seem to drain my battery during use.
The only slight, and I mean very slight, issue that I have found is that there is a small delay between when your pace changes and when the readout on your Android changes. Maybe 10 seconds. But, since I really don’t understand how SportsTracker Pro tracks my speed in the first place, I think I can forgive them that much.
SportsTracker Pro costs $9.82, and I’ll be the first to admit that is a high number for an Android app. For me? It was more than worth it. I actually started with the free version and then upgraded because I wanted to be able to use several of the pro features. Why is it worth it? Because this Android app has really helped me to challenge myself and I have seen amazing results because of it. I am excited to get out and run and I am excited to get the chance to beat my time day after day. I love looking at how far I have come and I can’t wait to see how far I can go.
So if you are looking for a great workout Android app to give you that little extra push? Then SportsTracker Pro is definitely the way to go!
