Android walk tracking

Functionality between smart watches and fitness trackers increasingly overlaps these days. If you have a watch with the various sensors to pick up your step counts and Bluetooth to send the data to a phone, it is not that far of a leap to blow things out to a full smart watch suite. With the advent of the Android Wear ecosystem, that has definitely become a lot easier to accomplish. The latest entry for that would be the just-announced Polar M600. I'm definitely not in the camp of everyday (or even casual) smart watch users, but the fitness spin on the Polar M600 speaks to me.

While I would not go so far as to say that workout gear and gadgets motivate me to get to the gym, they certainly can make things more interesting. The big thing in that regard that the Polar M600 brings to the table - at least for how I use things - is the heart rate, right on the wrist. Currently, I've got a watch and chest strap setup that I use. Now, this is accurate and it works; trying out something that is all-in-one, though, that has some appeal, for sure.

Unlike my current workout partner, the Polar M600 is using the Android Wear operating system, as I mentioned before. This means that there is a whole world of apps to interact with on the touchscreen of the device, as well as the ability build on how the device talks to your phone (an Android-based one, in my case). I have been paying more attention to these lately, and there seems to be quite a few clever apps that would augment and automate some things at the gym.

Chrometa captures your time for you as you work on your PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android. No need to start or stop timers. That's all done for you.

It's like having your very own personal timekeeper. Every email you write, every minute you work gets recorded and "automatically" put on your timesheet.

A good product that does what it says and helps to identify what I do in a day, specifically. It would be nice if the phone data uploaded automatically and/or in real time. It would be nice if you could get reports on the phone. Alerts? Generally the best product like this I have seen. […]
