We hope you've had a good summer of fitness tracking in which ever sport you pursue. For many of us the days are getting shorter as we head into the colder months and the beach weather is over. As the summer finally says farewell we have a half price sale on SportsTracker PRO and FitCloud apps on Google Play to help you keep moving.
The sale will last until October 1st, if you don't have pro already consider upgrading to SportsTracker PRO now.
With colder days coming you may want to try indoor workouts using the app Sensor Only mode. There are a choice of Bluetooth, Bluetooth SMART, ANT+ and Android Wear devices that are compatible with the app and may be used in Sensor Only mode. These sensors can also be used when using the app in GPS mode. An alternative to using a sensor for indoor workouts is to simply log your workout as a manual activity on the website or in the app.
