Striiv Smart Pedometer

By  | 

So you want to get fit just for the holiday season? Maybe you are tired of carrying the extra weight you have been carrying for a while. Moving your body each and every day while sticking with your diet plan could help. Striiv Smart Pedometer is an exciting application that gets you up and running. This pedometer tracks your progress and brings you games to help you become more active.

Striiv is all about getting you up and moving. It does not require you to get any additional hardware. The app uses activity-based games to get you fit. You can compete with your friends on Facebook all over the world. Users can personalize challenges to make sure they hit their workout target. As you move your body, you earn trophies.

Striiv has a good looking interface. It tracks your steps, distance, calories, and other relevant information. It also shows how many friends you are competing against. The charts available within this app are useful as well. The developers have teamed up with MyFitnessPal, so users get to track nutrition in addition to their activities.

Striiv for iPhone does use GPS to track your activities. That means you need to watch out your phone’s battery at all times to make sure you don’t go overboard. That aside, the idea behind Striiv is quite solid. It could prove useful for those who need some encouragement to get more active.
