Cyclists can equipped with an iPhone can take advantage of Cyclemeter GPS Bike Computer for Road & Mountain Biking to keep an accurate record of their workout, monitoring time, location, distance, speed and much more. Mount your iPhone on the handlebars of your bike and you can make use of the visual maps and graphs, but if this is not possible, audio alerts are also available to notify you of time and distance.
The app can be used to conduct races against yourself or you have the option of importing a virtual competitor or route using GPX or KML files. While the app has been designed with cycling in mind, it can also be used for walking, jogging, running, skiing and much more.
Cyclemeter can automatically detect when you are not moving so that any time you are static will be removed from your overall time. The fact that the timers can be controlled using the button on your iPhoen earphones means that there is no need to fumble around for your phone when you stop to record your current time.
You have the option of sharing your route and progress with friends via Facebook and Twitter, and an in-app purchase is available that can read Twitter responses to you as you travel. The detailed data stored by the app makes it possible to track your fitness regime and see how you are progressing and improving over time, and also makes it easy to set yourself new goals and push yourself that little bit harder.
Even if used solely as a stopwatch, Cyclemeter is a great app, but add the route planning, ghost racing and other features, and this is a must have for any serious cyclist.
