Are you recording your outdoor workouts?
You might think that fitness tracking is just for the gym and fitness classes, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Whether you’re hiking, cycling or just taking walks tracking your outdoor workouts can give you insight into your health and progress.
When you track your GPS route you can get additional workout information. Regular workouts only give you information about your heart rate and calories burned. GPS-tracked workouts, on the other hand, give information about your speed, route and elevation.
FITIV Pulse gives you all of this information and more.
GPS-tracked workout include lots of custom mapping options to explore.
There are multiple options for your map topography. You can also select to include mile markers or not. Once you’ve got things configured between your topography and mile markers you can change your route map to show more information on the map itself.
To see the different topography options go into your WORKOUTS list inside the FITIV Pulse iPhone app and tap on a GPS-tracked workout. Scroll down and tap on the map. You will see a globe icon and a mile marker icon. Tap the globe to scroll through different topography options. Tap on the mile marker icon to add or remove mile or kilometer markers from your GPS route.
You can choose to display your route or your speed/pace.
These will be overlaid over your workout route.
You can alternate between the three different mapping overlay options: normal, speed/pace or heart rate. Normal will give you a standard blue line depicting your workout route alone. The other two options will add colours to this route.
The colours are used like the FITIV heart rate zones. Red indicates either a period of time when you reached your highest heart rate zone or your fastest speed/pace for the workout. The colours descend to orange, yellow, green or blue according to the intensity of that segment of the route.
