Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter Version 7.0 Now Include Training Plans, Stopwatch Pages and iCloud Support(April 19, 2012)
San Francisco, CA, April 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iPhone fitness app developer Abvio Inc. has released version 7.0
of its top-rated apps, Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter. This major update
includes new features that serve a wide range of users, from
beginning runners to avid walkers to expert cyclists.
Version 7.0 now includes 5K, 10K, half-marathon and marathon
training plans. The 5K training plan is designed for
beginning runners, training them to run their first 5K race using a
carefully designed program that starts with run and walk intervals
of just a few minutes, building up to a full 5K race in 10
weeks. The 10K, half marathon and marathon plans build from
this base to support running their race distances.
Training plans can be built using the app to serve other goals,
including walking and cycling plans. Training plans and
workouts are viewable within the app's Calendar view, and can be
synchronized to the iPhone calendar and to online calendars such as
Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar.
The new Stopwatch Pages feature allows for easy access to all
your workout data, accessible with a simple swipe across the
screen. The stopwatch is highly configurable to include any of 150
statistics, and dozens of graphs, maps, splits, intervals and
zones' displays. Among other additions to Stopwatch Pages is an
integrated music player as well as color-coded statistics for
better data visualization.
"We're very excited about all of the new features in this
version, but Stopwatch Pages are our favorite," said Steve Kusmer,
CEO of Abvio. "Previous versions did a great job of recording and
announcing workout data, but Stopwatch Pages in 7.0 expands this
ability to allow you to see all your data easily, exactly the way
you want to see it. Cyclists using iPhone bike mounts should be
thrilled that they can now just swipe with a thumb rather than
hitting buttons to view stats, maps, and graphs while riding."
This update also includes a new History Tab that provides
powerful reporting. The revamped History gives you a view of recent
workouts and can include summaries of performance by week, month,
years, routes, activities, competitors and training plans.
First iPhone Fitness Apps to Support iCloud
Runmeter, Cyclemeter and Walkmeter 7.0 are the first GPS fitness
apps for iPhone to support iCloud for data backup and restore (iOS
5.0 and later). Workout data can be scheduled for automatic backup
daily, weekly, or any specified interval. The data can be loaded
from iCloud onto an iPad for review and analysis, and then loaded
back to an iPhone. In addition, a new iTunes file sharing feature
(iOS 4.0 or later) allows customers to save and restore the
application database using iTunes.
