[prMac.com] Oak Brook, Illinois - Viaden Mobile, one of the leading fitness app producers on the App Store, has released Cyclist PRO GPS , the app for iPhone/iPod that combines the ultimate bike computer with pedometer, pulse tracker and calorie counter.
Cyclist PRO GPS+ has been designed primarily for enthusiastic bike riders who want to stay on top of their ride at any time. Its dashboard mode displays the most important ride parameters such as speed, cadence, distance, time, inclination and many other. But irrespective of its name, Cyclist PRO GPS+ is good not only for bicycle riding, but also for walking, running, nordic walking, roller skating, ice skating, snowshoeing, skateboarding and more.
What makes Cyclist PRO GPS+ stand out from the crowd is that it can serve as a workout buddy or even a coach thanks to the high-quality pre-recorded announcements of distance, speed, time, elevation and about a dozen more parameters. This makes progress tracking easy and does not distract the rider.
Thanks to the use of the GPS technology, users can track their route on the map within the app. The map mode includes special advanced map markers for distance, speed, pace, elevation and heart rate. The current path is shown together with the predefined route for progress tracking and navigation. This mode also allows the users to create new routes straight on the map.
The Cyclist PRO GPS+ app provides a great ability to track heart rate stats with the help of external heart rate sensors. Users can choose what zone theyd like to stay in - warm-up/cool-down, cardio, fat burn - and monitor their heart rate on the app screen.
Hill riders will love the elevation tracking feature. Current elevation is shown on the map, and the log stores elevation gain, loss and inclination stats for every ride.
Another feature of Cyclist PRO GPS+ thats worth mentioning is daily goal. Users can set recurring distance, calorie and activity time goals and control their progress with the help of the special alarm.
And of course, as Cyclist PRO GPS+ is primarily a fitness app, theres a body tracker tool that makes it possible to log body size changes, share them on Twitter, Facebook, Dailymile or by email or SMS, and upload weight changes to RunKeeper and TrainingPeaks automatically.
Adding reliability to high technology, an important feature of the app is that all data is backed up and fully restorable.
All achievements can be easily shared on Twitter, Facebook, Dailymile, RunKeeper, TrainingPeaks or by SMS or email.
