This one goes to you, dear BlackBerry 10 users…we are excited to announce that our Endomondo app is now available for download from BlackBerry World.
The app currently works on BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 and we plan to support future BlackBerry 10 phones as they become available.
The free version of Endomondo contains all the most popular features: real-time GPS tracking for multiple physical activities, a history of workouts, route mapping, ability to deliver peptalks to friends exercising, access to the growing Endomondo social community, challenges and much more. A full BlackBerry 10 feature list is available here.
The app is a ported version and on par with Endomondo for iOS and Android. We know that some of you had hoped for a native BlackBerry 10 app. But as we have spent several years on developing our Android and iPhone apps, we decided to go with a ported Android version for BlackBerry 10 in order to offer you a full Endomondo experience instead of starting just with a basic tracker for BlackBerry 10.
BlackBerry 10 users wishing to access more advanced functionality have the option of upgrading to Endomondo Premium which is a subscription solution based on monthly or yearly payments. Premium offers more than 10 additional features that include: interval training, workout graphs within the mobile app, beat yourself challenges, weather information, and a great deal more. The current Endomondo Premium subscription rate is only $2.99/month or $19.99/yr. Please note that heart rate features are currently not supported by BlackBerry 10 app.
All Android users can now test their fitness level with the new release 8.7.0.
The fitness test is available for running and the testing distance is either 3 km or 2 miles, depending on what units you are using.
How does it work?
When you open the workout screen and press on a workout type (basic, follow a route, interval training, etc.), there will be a new type – Running Test 3km. Select it and your choice of a sport will be automatically changed to running. Please note that if you change the sport from running while the Distance Test is selected, the workout type will be changed to Basic.
You need to complete the full distance to get a fitness score and a fitness level. So, who is up for it? Kick it into high gear and test yourself! Our iPhone users can explore this feature in the next release.
We are excited to announce our new integration partnership with EveryMove. You can now start earning points toward great rewards. How? Just by doing what you’ve already been doing – by tracking with Endomondo. Read more

More data is displayed in workout summary in the newest Android version 8.5.0, specifically min./max. altitude, total ascent and total descent.

Going forward Premium membership will give access to all the website features – including the Pro app as part of the full package. See the list of Premium features below:

Besides Heart Rate Zones and Weather Information, our newest iPhone release offers the following new features:
Notifications when friends comment on and like your workouts
You’ll see a push notification in the Notification Center on the phone, and in the app a small envelope will appear in the top right corner on the workout screen. The number will indicate that one or more liked or commented on your workouts.
New tab with likes, peptalks & comments
Another feature which should make social interaction easier is that workout summary now includes new tab with likes, peptalks & comments.
8 new sports: circuit training, climbing, treadmill running, treadmill walking, skateboarding, surfing, snowshoeing & wheelchair
You may have noticed that we added these sports to the website a few weeks ago and with the latest release you can enjoy using them directly in the app as well.
Total duration/distance/calories for days with multiple workouts
A lot of our users are very active and there are days when you do more than one workout. That’s why we included total duration/distance/calories in a workout history for days with multiple workouts. Toggle between the stats by pressing the number.

We want to give you a heads up on some of the upcoming releases.
Right now we’re working on making the Premium website features available in the Android and iPhone app. As a Premium member, soon you’ll be able to check heart rate zones and weather info in your workout summary directly from the app. And, you’ll be able to upgrade to Premium right from the app as well. Going forward, you’ll see more and more Premium features available in the app. Read more
Those of you using our Routes feature on a regular basis know that it hasn’t always been a walk in the park to search for a route or draw a new one.
Well, the long-awaited makeover of the Routes page is here and we’re making it easier for you to indulge your inner explorer. Everybody knows recommendations from locals are priceless when it comes to travelling and discovering new places, so let Routes guide you to the best outdoor spots for working out all around the world.
We encourage you to go to the Routes page and play around with the new functionality, but first, read through our short guide below on the new features and updated look.
The first Endomondo release in 2013 aspires to please our iPhone users as version 7.2.0 contains two of the most requested features in our community:
Audio Coach Customization (PRO feature)
All iPhone PRO app users can now customize the audio coach based on time or distance intervals and choose what parameters to get feedback on. You can choose whether the Audio Coach should be time-based (e.g. every 3 minutes) or distance-based (e.g. every 500 m). Distance can be set from 200 m to 10 km and time can be set from 15 sec to 20 min. You can also specify what you want to hear specifically, toggling on/off the following options: Distance, Duration, Lap Time, Lap Speed, Heart Rate, Avg Heart Rate, Avg Speed, Calories, and Goal. The order can’t be changed. Goal means “expected finish time” when selecting a time goal. The Audio Coach is per default on, and set up the same way as it has worked in previous versions. Go to Settings to change the Audio Coach.
View Friends’ Workouts
The details of your Endomondo friends’ workouts (the workout summary, lap overview and map) are now visible when you click on a workout in the News Feed. It currently works for finished workouts of your friends – not live workouts.
Download the app from iTunes
We released a NEW update of the Android app – version 8.4.2. The new Audio Coach customization accommodates the two most requested features on our forum. We’re also bringing multiple languages and voices to the Audio Coach, a Step Counter, and the ability to view friends’ workouts and cadence directly in the app. Read more
We have now introduced a discount on Premium annual plan for PRO users. It has taken us a bit longer than we expected due to technical difficulties but it’s ready now. Users that have a PRO app associated with their account will get $4.99 in discount the first year when upgrading to the annual plan.
How to apply a discount?
You just need to be logged in at Endomondo.com with the same account you use for the PRO app and when you hit ‘Upgrade’ in Subscription Settings, the $4.99 discount will appear automatically, as shown in the picture.
PRO users that upgraded to the annual plan before this change will get 6 months extra added to their subscription free of charge. PRO users that upgraded to the monthly plan before this change will get 2 months added for free. The date when your subscription will renew next time is visible under your Subscription Settings on Endomondo.com.
Update: December 19
Here are more detailed terms for the discount and “extra months”:
The discount can be applied by all PRO app users signing up for an Annual Premium plan only – the discount will only apply the first time you sign up for Premium.
The extra months for existing Premium members do not apply to users who signed up to Premium using a coupon code, such as the Earndit 3 month free trial coupon. However, you can cancel your subscription during the trial and when you free trial ends, you can sign up for the Annual plan and apply the PRO app discount.
