Runtastic GPS Coach is a workout tracker which uses geolocation and calories counter
Runtastic is a professional coach tool for those who want to track their workout. It allows you to set routes, track the distance and the time it took to you, as well as the heart rate (if you're logged in and if you have the specific item for it: Wearlink+Bluetooth). It uses GPS to track your route in the map. In this regard, it should be said that it's quite accurate, more than other we've tried (it's full integrated with Google Maps).
What's more, you can add sessions manually: that's it, set your workout to your liking. You can set what kind of activity, distance (km), duration, time and calories goal. Likewise, you can let the app ask you what kind of sport you're going to practice every time you start a new activity: jogging, biking, nordic walking, skating, snowboarding...
It keeps a history of your workouts in order to monitor your progresses.
When you have finished your session you can save it and, after that set the bpm average, notes, what was your feeling, what surface you were practising it through, how was the weather and temperature. All this stuff will help you to know if you're progressing given the same conditions.
This is the free version with the basic features. If you want to get social sharing, more sports in the list, extra statistics, cheering during the activity with friends and many other extra features, you will need to upgrade to the pro version (€4.99).
Runtastic GPS Coach has been developed by runtastic, an emerging developer who has just launched this app on the market with remarkably success though.
If you're trying to get fit, this could be a reasonably option to motivate yourself. Recommendable.
Runtastic uses GPS to map and track your sports & fitness activities, such as: running, jogging, biking or walking. The Runtastic app tracks your cardio workout progress (time, distance, elevation change, speed, calories & more) to help you reach training goals. Join us and become part of a global fitness community that is fun & motivational, whether you're looking to improve your health, build up cardio endurance, or train for a marathon!

WHO’S TALKING ABOUT RUNTASTIC?
MASHABLE: “... people are choosing instead to download Runtastic, since the company just announced it's hit 25 million mobile users. That's as much as Nike+ (11 million as of February) and runner favorite RunKeeper (14 million) combined.”
TECHCRUNCH: “Thanks to MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, Nike and many more, apps that keep track of your exercise and push you to drop those extra pounds are by no means novel. Nonetheless, bootstrapped European startup Runtastic is still managing to carve out a name for itself in a crowded space by offering a simple user experience, while still offering the deeper functionality of higher-end products.”

Records the runs great
Most most recommended aps..
I reconsidered running after using this self-measuring tool. Tons of features for free; in-App purchase features are interesting but I can easily live without them.
Love it! Like how it tells you your distance and calories a you're still working out!!!
Love the app, but the Sony Smartwatch 2 side really needs 'low power mode so it does't revert to the watch face in a few seconds
I think I'll probably step up to pro.
