If you’re thinking of getting a fitness device like Fitbit or the Mi Band but just don’t want to drop so much cash for yet another device to add to your ever growing collection, we have a totally budget-friendly alternative for you! Apps like Samsung’s S Health and Under Armour’s MapMyWalk have been around for a while, and we love that they serve the same purpose for no cost at all! From a basic daily step counter to monitoring your diet, there’s plenty these apps can do for you.
The free version of this app is a basic pedometer that we found highly efficient. Its light interface didn’t drain our batteries, and it got the job done as well as we could hope for something free! The paid version, we hear, comes with a fitness coach that gives you various workouts to do and compare if you’re looking for something more than walking.
Running is basically fast walking, right? Amp your walking routine with some cardio using the Nike+ Run Club app. Whether you’re new to the brutal world of running or a seasoned veteran, this app can help create a workout that works for your level. Compare and compete with your friends, join challenges and even customise your own running music playlist! This app also syncs with Apple Watch.
