Fitbit App Update Lets Users Track Real-Time Run, Hike and Workout Stats


GPS-enabled ‘MobileRun’ shows pace, splits, time, distance and route maps to elevate training

AUCKLAND – July 1, 2014 – Fitbit, Inc., (https://www.fitbit.com/nz) the leader in the fast-growing Connected Health and Fitness category, today introduces MobileRun, a new feature that brings more power and convenience to Fitbit’s top-downloaded, free app. MobileRun uses GPS on a smartphone to accurately track, log and compare runs, walks and hikes efficiently and easily.

The newest version of the Fitbit app with MobileRun can be downloaded now from the iTunes store (Android version coming soon) and works with all Fitbit award-winning activity and sleep trackers: Flex, One and Zip – as well as with the MobileTrack function on the iPhone 5s version of the Fitbit app.

MobileRun – Run Stats, Route Maps & Beyond

Through GPS integration, MobileRun allows users to track and elevate training or workouts with real-time updates and key stats from individual runs, walks and hikes, including exact route, pace per mile (splits), distance and time.

MobileRun is packed with features to help users make the most of their workouts:

• Route history, spoken distance and mile markers while on a run, allowing users to monitor improvement or push themselves further in the moment

• Stats tracked integrate seamlessly with the main Fitbit dashboard, giving credit for steps taken, calories burned and active minutes during routes

• New Exercise Frequency calendar keeps users on track towards their workout goals – it automatically displays the days they have worked out by pulling in the frequency of MobileRun routes and logged exercises

• Users can now conveniently play and switch songs from their iTunes playlists without leaving the Fitbit app, keeping the focus on their workout.
