Sports tracker in a mobile phone

Nokia Sports Tracker is a mobile application to Nokia mobile phones which have internal gps-unit. You can track different activies (likecycling,running, skiing etc…) with it and it gives you information such as speed, distance, and time (even hearth rate if you have necessary equipment).

But the best part of it is that you can upload your workouts to Nokia’s online service where you can see the route you ran in a map, music you listened or the pictures you took along the way. The workouts can also be shared in social networks like Facebook  and you can invite friends to join the training.

It’s still in a beta stage but it has all the functionalities to make it a great motivator to go out and do some workouts. Nokia Sports Tracker also won the Best Mobile Internet Service award in GSMA Global Mobile Awards 2009!


Endomondo is similar service and I’ve tried it also, but it doesn’t give so much information in the mobile’s screen as Nokia’s app does. Endomondo only gives you information about the time and distance as you do the workout when Nokia gives you all kind of different graphs about your workout. You can also send pictures to Nokia’s service but Endomondo does not have that ability. Endomondo’s pro in the other hand is that it  is supported in wide variety of different mobile brands.
