Currently I am using a very good mobile app, Nike Plus Running. This application software is free to download and works on your android smart phone or iPone. The GPS system of your phone will measure your activity. You need to keep the aap running in the background when you can use other phone features side by side. Here I am uploading my three weeks activity with Nike Plus Running Aap and it is amazing that how I am calculating my fitness!
First sign up with http://nikeplus.nike.com/ you will be taken inside your activity window. Now there are several features that will tell your story. You will also get the same data on your mobile screen. Switch the aap, complete a run, pause it, then scroll the end button to fetch the data. The details will be saved on your account.
What is Nike Fuel? How much you can earn?
Nike fuel is a calculator that will motivate you to increase the numerical fuel digit. (See picture 1) I have earned 9601 + fuel, that means my activity is better than average of my age. I feel relaxed.
Feat and trophies?
The application itself designed to motivate you to involve in regular run. It will give you notification of your fastest 1 mile, fastest 1km, farthest distance, longest workout, and how much calories you have burned. This data will keep changing on your performance. You will beat your own past achievements to create new records. Here Nike is honest and the trophies you can share with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. No fake promises.
How to set a goal on Nike Plus?
Once you have successfully logged in http://nikeplus.nike.com, go to “DASHBOARD”, here you can set your running goal. The basic goal will given by Nike but you can set the goal of your own will.
(See picture 2), The goal, I have set. I named it, “LOVE TO RUN” of 12 runs in 30 days. This is an example of average goal. You can increase and decrease the number anytime. After-all your goal is your duty to fulfill. Nike can’t make you run without your own desire.
On the DASHBOARD page you can also see the maps that the GPS system has drawn during the run. Basically three colours that notifies the pace. (See picture 2)
Green: 10 – 12 min/mi
Yellow & Orange: 12- 15 min/mi
Red: above 16 min/mi
Now once you have finished the run the running aap will automatically calculate the average pace. This part of the aap captures my attention. The aap is so smart.
How Nike Plus Running Aap Calculate Daily Activity?
There are two types of beautiful stats you will get through your daily activity. The graph view is very easy to study your overall workout. For example, (See picture 3) past week I ran everyday. Average distance I ran 3.0 miles/day. I burned 1954 calories, and I crossed 21. 34 miles in 5.43 hours.
The second view is GPS map, pins the places you had started and ended your runs. (See picture 4).
Apart from these there are more. Any question, feel free to ask me. You can also contact Nike + Support here.
