in Health and Fitness (E)

[prMac.com] Oak Lawn, Illinois - Viaden Mobile's Pedometer PRO GPS + app has been chosen by a teaching hospital of the Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), to be a part of its Walking Club. Pedometer PRO GPS + uses both accelerometer and GPS for tracking running, jogging and walking statistics in a more reliable and precise way.

Combining high accuracy of activity monitoring with strong motivation benefits, Pedometer PRO GPS + is fun to explore and easy to use. Distance tracking and shape monitoring features make it an unparalleled gadget for the health and fitness conscious. The best proof of the app's professional quality and high reliability is BIDMC's decision to use it as the official application of its Walking Club.

Given the instability of GPS signal the developers of Pedometer PRO GPS + tried their best to develop a reliable app without full dependence on GPS. This is why Pedometer PRO GPS + combines the built-in accelerometer and GPS. The accelerometer replaces GPS when the signal is not available, and GPS overrides the accelerometer data and corrects it if necessary, thus ensuring even more precision. This algorithm allows Pedometer PRO GPS + makes sure there are no blanks in activity statistics and all data is as correct as possible.

Another perk of the GPS technology is that it allows Pedometer PRO GPS + to run in the background mode, a mission impossible for accelerometer-only pedometers.

Pedometer PRO GPS + counts steps, monitors burned calories, measures distance, speed and pace, which is essential for those who adhere to a healthy lifestyle. Apart from these, it boasts a number of extra features, such as the ability to set a variety of daily goals, easy tracking of the user's progress, simple conversion of data to CSV and its forwarding to the user's email for further reference and the sharing feature.
