It’s 2014! Which is exciting, but it also means that the Christmas period is officially over – and so there’s no excuse for just sitting on the sofa watching TV. It might also be a good time to get fit – so here’s our top five Android fitness apps.
If you bike, then you need Strava in your life. Set it going on your phone before you set off, and it’ll log your journey. At the end, not only will you be able to see where you went, but it will also give a fascinating breakdown of the inclines and declines - so you can figure out why you were struggling to get up that hill. Even better - it’s gamified and social… Strava has divided the world into competitive sections - so you can ‘race’ against other players, to see who can get the fastest time biking over, say, Waterloo Bridge. Plus you can add your friends, and log each journey - reviewing your cycling progress. The only downside is that it’s a bit of a drain on your phone battery - but really enhances the cycling experience.
