I started with MFP before buying the Fitbit because it helped me keep track of the food I was eating and I was able to find a larger variety of foods listed under MFP also with the new updates, it shows how much protein, fat and carbs you have consumed for the day. I can also share information with my trainer because he can link into My Fitness Pal through his account. See More
Main activity screen of the application has full-width advertisements for irrelevant products mixed with ads for Premium features, as well as links to assorted fitness and health articles. See More
Endomondo used to be a singular priced upfront paid app with no subscription fee, twice. During the first restructuring, the app was changed on the store, leaving out the people who had paid originally, to then require them to pay again for the new app. After this happened, the app changed again to be free-to-play, dropping features that paying customers had paid for and locking them behind a monthly pay wall. So not only did long time users who paid for the app get ripped off once, if they had paid for the newer paid app, they got ripped off again when the app went free-to-play. This is not a great track record for the service, leaving to question, when is the next restructuring going to happen that may potentially take the money of paying customers without delivering the service promised.

Many features of the app are locked behind a monthly or yearly paywall. A single month subscription is $5.99, while the yearly subscription is $29.99. This may be prohibiting for those that want to track exercise, but do not want to commit to the cost. See More
Endomondo displays your route using Google Maps and tracks distance, duration, avg. speed, avg. pace, calories burned and hydration. It even tracks what music you listen to while exercising (can be viewed on their website). See More
Wahoo offers several apps and in one case this can be confusing. This review is about the Wahoo Fitness app, but they also offer a similar one which is the Wahoo RunFit app and this does not track half of the stuff. I don't see why it even exists as it can only do less the the Fitness app. They offer several other apps as well which I have not looked at so far, but they do other things entirely as far as I could tell and thus do not create more confusion.

The app will also show you an overview of all your trainings telling you how many calories you have burned in your workouts, how many trainings you have logged, how many Kilometers (or miles) you have ran and how many hours you have spent working out. It is, of course, also possible to go into all your previous workouts and look at all the exact details of every single one of them, if you would like. See More
As I believe you need a Wahoo product to use the app, the buy in to get the app is relatively high starting at about USD 50 and going up very much higher depending on what equipment from them you choose. For me it was well worth the investment of USD 100 for the Tickr X, but it is surely not for every one! See More
The app syncs well with apple health and you get all your logged activities and data transferred. It will even track the Nike Fuel points, but those will not sync over to Apple's health app because in there the Wahoo app can not be selected as a source. See More
I once had on my Wahoo Tickr X and a Basis Peek smartwatch and it gave me the option which of the HR-motiros I wanted to take the heart rate from. I never attempted to use the Basis as the Tickr is much more accurate, but I would assume it lets you use any BT HR-tracker that is around to connect. This may mean the app could also work without a Wahoo device, but I am not sure and it would certainly loose you a lot of the other PROs See More
The app does not only work for running or cycling outdoors, but also for running on a treadmill where it will also measure your distance and pace based on calculations it makes after you set it up and for indoor cycling (or spinning) where it will measure your cadence (but not distance) quite accurately. It will also let you track a weight lifting session and will then tell you about how many calories you burned. This is another feature not many other trackers have. Most of the functions will only work with their top of the line Tickr X for about USD 100, but the basics are also available with the base model. See More
