Nokia Sports Tracker Rejuvenated, Appears in Ovi StoreFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications
It’s been a while since the Sports tracker appeared in the Nokia Beta Labs, where it was a huge success. Such was the popularity of this app that it won the Best Mobile Internet Service Award in last year’s GSMA Global Mobile Awards. No wonder the app not only graduated from Nokia Beta Labs, Jussi Kaasinen and Ykä Huhtala, the developers of the app now head the Sports Tracking Technologies (STT), a spin-off company working on the award winning service.
Coming to Sports Tracker, it’s an amazing logger app for fitness aficionados which not only logs your fitness routine but also helps you evaluate and share (presently not working but should be working in a matter of time) your fitness regime with the rest of the world. With tight integration with GPS module onboard our 5800s, this app converts your 5800 to an effective pedometer and with interactive maps, this is one killer combo, you don’t wanna miss. Catch some screenshots and brief review after the break.
That should set you on a fitness regime if you don’t already have one! Seriously we are so awed by this app that we feel working out has never been this cool. Okay, may be went a bit overboard with our previous exclamation but seriously this is one of the coolest fitness app we have seen on symbian or any mobile platform for that matter.
If you compare it with the previous version, there are some noticeable differences in the UI and the overall features within the app. Starting a fitness activity is now takes just two taps and during the activity handy info including distance, time and speed is displayed on screen, while location is being tracked on a map (courtesy-OpenStreetMap) all along.
What we like?
- Streamlined UI and ease-of-use
- An exhaustive training diary
What we don’t like?
- Heart Rate Monitor belt is presently not available
Sports Tracker is no doubt one of the best apps that we have got our hands on in the last couple of years. It boasts of an exhaustive feature set which should satisfy even the most diligent fitness activity logger. Though there are a few glitches with the online share not working along with the absence of “Polar for Nokia” range of Heart Rate monitoring belts, which we are assuming is due to the transition of the service from Nokia Beta Labs to Sports Tracker Technologies, the app is definitely a must have for your 5800s.
