Sportstracker is back – in a new and revised version. SportsTracker is a GPS-based application that kees track of everything from calories burned while running to your average cycling speed over altitude. This freeware application turns your smartphone a full-featured GPS sports computer. On your handset you get maps, time and distance calculators, step count, and even heart rate when you use a compatible HR belt. All data is stored in a diary so you can chart your progress, find your strengths and weaknesses, and share with others. In the future you will be able to upload your tacks to the online-service as well. Sportstracker is available for the Nokia 5800, N97, N97 mini, X6, 5230, 5235 as well as for the 5530 and can be downloaded in the Ovi Store. Hence only S60 5th Edition (Symbian^1) devices are supported,no non-touch devices yet.
Nonetheless, SportsTracker is definitely a must have application, whether you are a professional runner or just eager to know the distance from your home to your work place.
