Technology Matters

    “Pacer” shows your step count for the day, along with active time and estimated calories burned.  You can see how active you’ve been during the day and the progress you’ve made toward your goals.

      If you’re going for a long walk or run, simply start a session for that specific activity.  You can even see the route you took on a map.  The app is free for iOS and Android with premium features available for purchase.

      “Map My Walk” refers to what you do on your walk or run as “workout details.”  It shows you where you were and allows you to log your food choices, even integrate music. 

      It includes essentials you’d expect, such as distance, duration, etcetera.  Map My Walk also has a social element so you can share your progress, or perhaps compete with friends using the app.  Its free for iOS and Android with premium features available to buy.

    “Sweatcoin” is perfect for those needing a little motivation to get moving.  Users actually earn a digital coin for every one-thousand steps taken when walking or running.  Get enough coins and trade them for products and services, such as yoga classes and tech gadgets.  Coins also can be sent to friends or donated to buy items for charity.  The app is free for iOS and Android.
