[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Santa and his reindeer can breath a sigh of relief and in fact this announcement may help Santa get ready for his annual squeeze down the chimney for the jolly fellows at Appnoose have announced the release of their newest and most advanced ratio based interval timer, ITGO CALORIE. Interval Trainer GO CALORIE, the full name for ITGO CALORIE, is the world's first iOS Interval Trainer to feature dual music playlists and Calorie information based on your exercise, in addition to the standard ITGO features of visual, beep, and vibration interval change alerts and automatic fast and slow iPod music playlists switching.
With ITGO CALORIE's Active Calorie Monitor(TM) feature, users can set up their workout to burn a specific number of calories based on their weight and chosen exercise. ITGO CALORIE will then set their total session length automatically. Alternatively, users may set their session time, including warm up and cool down time, enter their weight and choose an exercise and ITGO CALORIE will display the approximate calories to be burned in that session. There is also a real time display of calories burned during the exercise.
"ITGO's suite of interval timer training apps have been leading the iOS field in terms of design aesthetics and features being not only the most distinguishable of interval trainers with its dual concentric timers but also ITGO was the first to introduce dual automated playlists", states ITGO inventor Owen Hunte. "Now we've upped the ante by adding Active Calorie Monitor(TM) algorithms which will allow users to use ITGO in new inspiring ways. And with Christmas coming up that can only be a good thing", concludes Hunte.
The original Interval Trainer, ITGO sports dual concentric dial timers and separate numerical progress indicators while ITGO Matrix again boasts another world first with programmable 'pods' that store interval times with distinguishable fast and slow pods coded by color. In addition to the original features, ITGO CALORIE adds programmable warm up and cool down phases, superior ratio control, improved numerical entry operation, upgraded graphics and of course Active Calorie Monitor(TM) algorithms.
"There are many conclusive studies by leading medical research facilities that emphatically prove that interval training is the most effective form of cardiovascular exercise and as nearly 60% of adults in most countries are overweight or obese what could be a more practical, cheap but beneficial gift from the App store for a loved one or oneself concludes", concludes Hunte.
ITGO CALORIE instructions are available in 9 languages from the Appnoose website including English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Korean.
