Garmin released its first fitness app onto the Android Market the other day and while it’s been reported to have a few bugs, it looks to be a promising addition to your fitness repertoire. Garmin Fit uses your phone’s GPS to track your movements and provides you with your current speed, distance traveled, elapsed time and calories burned. A key advantage of Garmin’s fitness app is its automatic upload of your daily workout data to Garmin Connect. Garmin Connect is a website that allows you to view your route on a map, easily track your progress, share your workouts with others and much more. Garmin Connect veterans will appreciate the convenience of having an additional training tool readily accessible via their everyday handheld device. You can even listen to music while enjoying your favorite workout routine thanks to Garmin Fit’s built-in music feature. Since Garmin Fit uses your phone’s GPS, it is ideal for outdoor activity where a steady GPS signal is available.
The app is only $.99 in the Android Market and is compatible with devices running Android 2.1 and above. To download Garmin Fit for your Android device, simply follow the link below and get started logging in those miles.
