If you are a jogger and you are trying to be in the best shape possible, Strava is a perfect app for you. This app will help you in achieving your goals and in making progress.
In essence, this app let you:
- Monitor your progress,
- Create goals
- See additional details related to your physical health.
Strava also measures:
- Calories you burned
- Heart rate
You can share these information and your goals on:
and follow your friends and comment their achievements. You can share Instagram photos as well, via your profile on Strava.
Strava also helps you in choosing the right route for running or cycling. These maps were created by other users. This means that you can create your own route as well. If you live in an area where a lot of people use Strava, this feature is more than welcomed.
The user interface is functional and highly informative. However, it is a bit more complicated to use, when you use this app for the first time. This means that you are going to need a few days to get used to the interface. In addition, all values this pap shows to you, like speed, pace and etc. are displayed on a single screen, so it may be confusing. As aforementioned, after a few days, this won’t be a problem for you.
The best side of this app is the price. It is free. However, there is a premium version available. It brings more tools and features. For example, you can monitor your heart rate, set milestones and filter leaderboards. Premium version is definitely a better choice, but the free version is enough for most users. It has all what you need and even more.
