As you may know, we introduced Endomondo Premium in November last year, which includes additional motivating features online like Weather Information, Workout Comparison and Heart Rate Zones. We now offer two of these features, Heart Rate Zones and Weather Information, in our app for iPhone – and next week it will be available on Android as well. 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:
Premium membership is a subscription service. You can go with an Annual membership for $19.99 or with a Monthly membership for $2.99. If you have already bought the Pro app, you will get the Annual membership for $15 for the first year. Go to our Premium page for more info.
More about vers. 8.0.0 for iPhone
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.

Big thanks to all the users who voted for us at The Next Web’s Danish Startup Awards 2013. We’re happy to share that we won in the categories: Best Mobile App and Best Design. Thanks for the support!
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
We asked our users, what’s your favorite Monday workout to fire up a new week? The results of our little survey show that many like to start a week with a solid run, just like our colleague Robert, who is gracing the picture after an 8K run – no fake sweat was added. According to the answers we got, run can come in many diverse forms:
Helin: A good run to blow away either the cobwebs or my stresses
Matt: Usually run a 5 K try to beat my time from the previous week
Steffen: It’s Half-Marathon-Monday… :>
Carlos: An airplane run… From 1A to 36E
Jacob: Relay race to the coffee brewer…
Some users take a day off from exercising instead of pushing it and indulge on food and drinks:
Matthew: 6 miles and beer!
Claudio: Steak and fries.
Michael: Opening a bottle of chokolate milk…. glurk glurk glurkkk… arrhhh
These guys are all for mixing it up, which is a great way how to prevent boredom:
Andrew: 10mile bike ride followed by a 2mile run. Laying down the foundations for my first ever triathlon later in the year.
Krzysiek : Right leg out of the bed, then back because it’s too cold outside. Lie down quietly for 5 minutes, then turn on your belly and put your left leg out of the bed. Decide if it’s got warmer, then proceed accordingly. If both legs are successfully out of the bed, try to apply the routine to your upper body.
Henrik: 2 K swimming, sauna, shave, relax
Getting fresh air and some exercise while fighting the weather is in our opinion a win-win situation:
Melissa: Today wasn’t my favorite, but I got plenty of exercise shoveling snow.
And what is your favorite way to start a new week?

Which means of transport would you choose for adventure travelling across the entire US? Planes are too ordinary, cars aren’t anything new, motorcycles might be too dangerous, perhaps a train?
Erik Kok and Remko Burger from the Netherlands know better. They rode across the United States on laid back bikes! Their journey started in March 2012 in San Francisco and ended 6 months later in New York City. We had an opportunity to ask Erik Kok a few questions about this journey. Read more
2013 is already a week old and we’re excited about what the New Year will bring! Before we look into what to expect from Endomondo in 2013, let’s first have a look at what happened in 2012. Read more
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.
