Facts

Endomondo is a social sports and fitness network with community tools that enable people worldwide to engage around their passions for living vital, healthy lives. It centers on activities and sports that unify physically active individuals and promote exercise for recreational and serious athletes alike. The mission is to make fitness fun and engaging.

THE MOBILE APP: A SOCIAL MOTIVATOR ON TOP OF A FULL-FLEDGED PERSONAL TRAINER

Endomondo Sports Tracker turns your mobile into both a personal trainer and a social motivator. Bring your mobile whenever you run, walk, bike or do any other outdoor sport across a distance. While you are out there, your route is automatically tracked together with your distance, duration, average speed, split time, calories burned, and more. The audio coach will inform you about your pace for each kilometer or mile. The app keeps a full history of your workouts.

The social dimension is what really makes Endomondo engaging and sets it apart from other fitness apps. Your friends can follow your workout live and if they think you need their help to give it a little extra, they can send you peptalks that are read aloud to you in real time – a popular feature used for both encouragement and harassment! The app also allows you to race against a friend’s previous workout with help from the audio coach.

Endomondo Sports Tracker is connected with Endomondo.com where users can keep a full training diary, dive into more detailed analyses, connect with friends and challenge them. Users can integrate with Twitter and Facebook to share their activities further.

The app is the highest rated fitness tracking app across major app stores.

TIMELINE: FROM 0 TO 15 MILLON USERS AND GROWING

In addition, data can be imported from Garmin sports devices and from certain data formats and the app is integrated with heart rate monitors from Polar, Zephyr and Garmin. ANT+ supported devices like bike speed and cadence sensors will also work on ANT+ enabled Android phones.

THE NAME: A WORLD OF ENDORPHINS

Endo is short for endorphins, which are released in the brain during sports. Mondo means world in Esperanto. In sum, Endomondo is a world of endorphins!

    Love to see HR max min per kilometer, lap, minute etc. Manual or via, Garmin, Polar, ANT+.
    On/in the graphs would be perfect! Is it in the pipeline?
    Also: connection to a free food-app.

    is it possible to improve the GPS system in the new version for android? After I installed the new version the tracker keeps stopping, and makes it hard to concentrate on running, because I have to check it every kilometer or so to make sure it’s still running. Today this meant my rute of approximatily 7,5 kilometers was tracked in three intervals adding up to 5,9 km. This almost never happened with the old version.

    Thanks a lot to the app developers!! You guys have truly made our (referring to all sports enthusiasts) life easier.. tracking our workouts to a fair level of accuracy is motivating.

    Could you please share how the hydration is calculated? The app in my mobile is showing a different value than the one which appears on this site “Training Page”.

    Hey, Really enjoying using Endomondo to track my cycling. One thing that would be a huge help is for the GPS to include satellite navigation with a map and turn by turn directions that update automatically. Having this would put it in good competition with Garmin Edge type cycling computers, and I’m sure that many (like me) would be happy to pay a premium for this type of service. Thanks and keep up the good work!

  24. Does Endomondo publish statistics about running paces of users as a reference for other users? For instance, what percentage of runners train under 10 min/km…

    I take pride of been one of the first Endomondo users in Puerto Rico and use it almost every morning. I also recommended as often as I can. Their is one thing that maybe can make it more robust, nutritional facts. It could be a menu entered buy the user with a two digit code. Ect, ect ect.

  26. Attention PPC Mac users (all five of you ):

    Here’s a workaround for Endomondo’s pointless version check of Garmin Communicator (which renders the service useless for PPC users (thanks!)):

    I. In Finder pres []+[SHIFT]+G to navigate to the folder: “/Library/Internet Plug-ins/GarminGpsControl.plugin/Contents”.

    II. Right-click the file “info.plist” and choose “Open in” and “Other”; find Text Edit …and click “Open”.

    Now you’ll see the contents of the plist (property list).

    III. Simply do a search-and-replace ([]+F) of “4.0.1.0” with “4.0.4.0” (there sould be four entries).
    Save and exit.

    If you can’t save it, copy “info.plist” to your desktop and edit it form there and copy it back to the “/Library/Internet Plug-ins/GarminGpsControl.plugin/Contents” folder (choose replace).

    IV: Do a check by navigating to the the folder “/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/”, click “GarminGpsControl.plugin” and press []+I to see the file info.
    Under “version” it should now say 4.0.4.0

    V: Enjoy

    Hello,
    I love Endomondo app (using it on Android for a while now)!

    I miss one workout possibility: I train using Jeff Galloways method of running with walking breaks. I would like to have the possibility to set distance goal for the training (let’s say 10km) with intervals of walking/running in minutes (or low/medium intensity) repeating continously during the whole distance. Right now you can set either distance or interval training but not combination of these.

    First of all: Endomondo is a great application, I have enjoyed almost from its beginning. I have tried other similar applications, but Endomondo is absolutely my preferred.

    In the beginning it existed as a free version, then came the Pro version at a one time fee. I don’t remember the price, but it was in the typical span around few dollars. The Pro version had all the features I needed, and consquently I bought it – also to support the good project.

    Then suddenly the Pro version became the free version, which could be upgraded to Premium version, and then lately features are gradually removed from the Pro version, presumably to motivate people to move to the Premium version.

    This means first of all, that what I once payed for is no longer delivered, which by itself is absolutely not OK.

    Typically the more expensive apps are around 10-12 dollars as one time fee, but the price for Endomondo Premium is 20 dollars PER YEAR.

    Well, I could afford it, but I feel that Endomondo is squeezing the lemon at great bit too far by the price combined with the policy of gradually reducing features of the free version. This is of course the liberty of Endomondo to do so, if they wish, but at the same time I really feel they cheat by first making people pay for the Pro version, then making i free and finally reducing features.

    What do other users think of this policy, and what is Endomondo’s comment to it?

    (I wander if this article suddenly disappears from this page??)

    I always use the GPS function when I am running. Sometimes it happens that the route shown on the maps have small errors in actual running distance. Could there be a function in the web version that you can manually correct the route?
    The biggest problem is that all best times are wrong because sometimes the shown route is a few 100 meters off then the actual route. Other option already available is to delete the training but i won’t like that.

    Good day, endomondo.
    I use the android app for an year, and I can tell, that this is very good app.I am very glad that you are constantly improving the application. I do not know where to write, so I’ll write here.
    I would like to suggest a small upgrade. it would be useful to introduce a best season notification. Endomondo should to track not only the best result in the history, but also the best result within the season. and it will be written in site, like a “SB: 5 km by 20:04″. I think it would be good motivation for users :)

    I use endomondo for iPhone every day and love it. However, is there a way to stop the click automatically at a specified distance? If I run say 4 miles, It is kind of inconvenient to have to press stop and then the distance ends up @ like 4.1 and the time is a couple seconds longer.

    Hi.Could be the GPS tracking improved,please? Lately it’s been shutting the tracking down after the first mile (either Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 or Huawei G6 plus doesn’t matter if I restarted before the work out) if it feels like it. Doesn’t stop the time or pauses the workout,just shuts the tracking.
    Anything could be done?

    Been an Endo user for about 5 years. Recently Bluetooth audio randomly mutes and requires volume keypress on headphones to unmute. Very annoying when riding. Never had the problem previously. I know it is endo app as it does not do this if only playing music and have tried with other music players and other apps without problem. Please investigate and fix. BTW, I am using Jaybird BluebudX.

    I disagree that the real attraction to Endomondo is the social aspect. I think that it is the detail in the workout analysis that it allows. I use the premium version. I need indoor rowing and a running metronome added, though. Someone promised us the metronome over a year ago. Any idea on an ETA? Or will I have to swap to ismoothrun?

    Hi! Could you please improve the workout comparison? It would be fine if we could compare similar workouts (same routes) in a map overview.

    Another ideia: Now we could select until 3 workouts to get comparison stats. If we could select one main workout between that 3 workouts, the stats could be given in a diference format, something like that:

    Example 1: Máx speed stat
    Main workout: “x min/km”
    Workout 2: “y min/km (-0:03 min/km*)
    Workout 3: “z min/km (+0:01 min/km*)

    Example 2: Bars with time of each km
    Main workout: 5:12
    Workout 2: 5:27 (+0:15*)
    Workout 3: 4:45 (-0:27*)

    * in comparison with the main workout.

    Thank you!
