Start Exploring Your New Workout Page

Blogcover
 
Over the past months, we’ve been on a mission – to revamp our workout page by making it better than ever, and able to meet the needs of our growing community. A few weeks back, we started rolling out the updated workout page, and got a lot of good feedback from our community, so thanks! We took in all the feedback you sent us and got to work. Now, we’d like to invite you to be among the first to try your new workout page, so you can share your thoughts on it before we roll it out to everyone.

This was the first major redesign we’ve done on web in a long time and this means that there were a lot of adjustments to be made both to the design and to the system. Our goal is to make it easy and engaging for you to analyze your performance on every workout, and get a true sense of your achievements and progress whenever you visit your page regardless of whether you’re on mobile, tablet or desktop. With so many of you (and your friends) visiting the page from mobile and social, we wanted to make sure your achievements are always front and center.

To get a feel for what’s new, check out the highlights of the vibrant new design. Continue reading Start Exploring Your New Workout Page

Share Your Commitments With Friends

Last month, we wanted to help you stick to your resolutions by making a commitment to yourself. We got a lot of great feedback on the release of our Commitments feature, which lets you set a weekly fitness goal and follow the progress made towards it. If you missed our how-to post, you can check it out here. We’ve now added some of your suggestions to our Android 10.7 and iOS 9.7 updates to help improve how you commit to your goals, no matter what they are. Maybe your main fitness goal is to run faster or to get in better shape. Depending on where you start off from, it can seem like it will take forever to get there. That’s why breaking it down into smaller, accessible goals will help you realize the real progress you’re making. With Commitments, you can find your motivation in reaching a goal each week, and pat yourself on the back for those milestones you hit along the way towards your overall fitness goal. Speaking of which, remember to reward yourself for those fitness feats, because you’ve earned it!

Why We’re Merging Our PRO and Free Android Apps

mailtop

To make progress, there has to be change, and this belief is what ensures we keep innovating with our app. Ever since we launched our PRO version in 2010, we’ve been working hard to keep updating it, as well as our Free app and our Premium feature set. Our focus is now, and has always been, to offer you the best features and most optimized experience each time you use Endomondo. In order to to that, we are simplifying our user experience by merging our PRO and free apps on Android into one. This means that after the 10.7. release, the PRO app will no longer be updated with new features. If you are currently using our PRO app, we kindly ask that you download and use our Free app from now on. Continue reading Why We’re Merging Our PRO and Free Android Apps

It’s that time of year again where resolutions and good intentions abound. Still, we all know that without a goal to stick to, it’s hard to see those resolutions through to the end.

A bit of friendly competition never hurts, right? Speaking of your own progress, we’re giving you a sneak peek at our latest feature – Commitments.

Now on Android – Pebble and Jabra Pulse Support, and More!

Pebble
A few months ago, we announced our Pebble integration on iOS. The response was great, so we’re really excited to announce that we now also support Pebble on Android, along with some other cool features in the latest Android release – version 10.5.

Pebble on Android:
Connecting your Endomondo app with a Pebble watch is easy. Simply go to ‘Settings’ in the app , then ‘Smartwatch’ and then ‘Pebble’ to connect with your Pebble.

Our Android app for Pebble lets you start, pause or stop a workout while exercising, just like the iOS version. You’ll be able to control the app directly from your Pebble watch without having to reach for your phone. The app will also display up to three different stats on your Pebble, such as distance covered, heart rate or workout duration. Your Endomondo app sends vibrating alerts to your Pebble at a given distance or duration you’ve covered (same intervals as your audio settings), and will briefly display a performance summary. Continue reading Now on Android – Pebble and Jabra Pulse Support, and More!

A Day In The Life Of…

whats_new_life
Have you been keeping track of every step of your day? Well, if you are an iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus user, you may be doing just that with Endomondo Life. We hope that you’ve been discovering just how active you are throughout your day, and that with Life, you get inspired to move more and raise your goals as you progress. To help you get more out of Life, we’ve added more features – new visuals and personalized notifications.

Fresh features on Endomondo Life:

Your Day

Your day just got more graphic, in a good way with the “Your Day” bar chart. Check it out in the screenshot above, which shows what an action-packed day could look like. Your Day shows your level of activity spread out over the course of a 24-hour day. The activity level for each hour is calculated based on both the length of the activity, and the intensity of the activity. So, 20 minutes of high intensity, heavy activity will be shown as a higher bar than 25 minutes of light activity. Heavy activity is defined as 620 steps or more in a 5 minute period.

New notifications

A little extra encouragement never hurt anyone, and we want to support your efforts to stay active by giving you more tailored reminders and updates throughout your day. We’ve developed a new notification system to make your experience much more personal and more fun. Based on your activity level, you’ll get one of 50+ notifications which will let you know how far you are from reaching your goal, or if you’ve been busy, you’ll be notified when you reach it.

We hope these new features help you stay even more active and that you remember that every little bit counts when getting fit.

Enjoy every step of your day!

The Endomondo Team
