Bit of Exercise - A New GPS Exercise App for iPhone Reaches App Store
September 20, 2012 in Health and Fitness
[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - With Bit of Exercise 1.0, Bit of Mind AB enters the competition for active iPhone users, by introducing a new exercise app for the iPhone with the focus on improving the usability without removing advanced features. Bit of Exercise takes the user's outdoor activities, such as running, cycling and walking, to a new level. No longer do users have to manually keep a record over their exercise data. Instead Bit of Exercise will handle the recording of the user's exercises for them, using their iPhone's built in GPS's. After completing an exercise the user will be able to review it in detail, compare it with a reference and share it with friends without leaving their iPhone.
As the users are advancing, they will soon start to appreciate how Bit of Exercise allows them to combine their activities into multi-segment activity programs. This allows a user to set up more complex exercises, such as interval and hill training programs. Combine this with the use of start and end criteria, and the guidance from spoken announcements, and the user will have an amazing exercise coach in their iPhone.

* Detailed examination of exercise data along routes
* Powerful hierarchical organization of settings and exercises
* Start and end criteria for more automated recording
* Combine activities into arbitrary complex exercise programs
Intuitive Recording And Reviewing:

Even though Bit of Exercise might not be the first app of its kind, Bit of Mind believes it has the potential to become the best. Bit of Exercise would not come to be if Bit of Mind did not feel that the current offerings in the App Store are either too simplistic and limiting or too feature bloated and complex to use. Hence, Bit of Exercise has been carefully designed to achieve a better balance between ease of use and powerful features. On top of that, Bit of Exercise also introduces many new and powerful features.
Easy To Use:
The interface of Bit of Exercise is surprisingly simple considering the amount of features that it contains. Bit of Mind have worked hard to keep the interface clean and easy to use, both for new users and more advanced users. As soon as the user grasps the basic hierarchal organization of their exercises and settings they will be amazed how powerful it is. This will be especially evident when the user is starting to use many different kinds of activities, all with their special requirements.
As for the more advanced features, a lot of effort has been put into allowing activity segments to be combined into multi-segment activity programs. When this is combined with the setup up of different start and end criteria, many of the typically manual operations, such as start, stop and stepping between activity segments, can be elegantly automated. Bit of Exercise also contains an advanced auto pause detection algorithm, that helps removing non active parts from the user's exercises.
Detailed Reviewing On The User's iPhone:
With Bit of Exercise the user don't have to upload their exercise data to a website to be able to properly analyze it. Neither do they have to setup any accounts or pay any monthly fees. Instead Bit of Exercise has been designed to make the experience of reviewing your exercises within the app both fun and extensive. From the dashboard the user can review most aspects of their exercises in detail. Graphs and maps can be zoomed, and the user can easily navigate to any location along an exercise's route. All the user's exercise results are also easily compared against a reference of choice.
