Endomondo fitness tracker app updated - Bluetooth LE support and more
Popular fitness tracking app Endomondo is getting a pretty massive update today, bringing heart rate monitor via Bluetooth LE support. Although heart rate monitor support is the biggest change here, there’s also a new lock screen widget, Google+ sharing, improved maps and more.
Here’s the full change-log, for those interested:
- Bluetooth Low Energy: HR monitors.
- Improved Maps: Support for more map features, such as terrain map, rotate and tilt gestures, compass and more.
- Lock Screen Widget: View your workout data while the screen is locked with our new widget (Android 4.2 and up).
- Updated Graphs: Enjoy bigger and better graphs on the map. (Premium and Pro).
- Get Started Tutorial.
- Google+ Sharing: Share your workouts on Google+.
- ANT: New ANT+ implementation using “ANT Plugins”. Please reconnect to your sensors!
Overall, the update is a welcome one for Endomondo users. For those that have yet to try the app? Honestly, if you are already enjoying Runkeeper or any of the other popular trackers out there, the feature set is similar enough that there is probably no reason to switch now.
That said, if you are new to the world of fitness trackers, Endomondo is certainly worth trying out. It’s important to note that while there is an ad-supported free version of the app, the full experience will set you back $4.99. To grab the latest update, or learn more about the app, you’ll want to head over to Google Play.
