Top 5 Free Pedometer Apps for iPhone

5 Pedometer Apps to Get Fit

Pedometer apps can help us to efficiently fight sedentary behavior by providing the necessary motivation to stay active.

Taking advantage of the built-in motion processor, they provide us with a useful set of data regarding our physical activity, are super easy to use, work indoors as well and are quite gentle with our battery life. In comparison, if you want to use GPS-based apps to track your daily activity, you can expect a significant impact on your battery and not so accurate results when used indoors.

You can use any of the following apps to measure your daily movement without worrying that they’ll drain your iPhone’s battery:

ActivityTracker

ActivityTracker is a pedometer app for iPhone created to keep track of your all-day activity. Since it uses the motion processor instead of GPS, it will allow you to measure your movement without draining your battery.

The app can monitor the steps taken, flights of stairs climbed, distance covered, the total active time and the calorie consumption. It enables you to set fitness goals for yourself, such as burning a 1.000 calories or walking 10.000 steps, and displays your progress on a monthly, weekly, daily or hourly basis. A nice feature of the app is the Today widget which shows at a glance all the relevant information regarding your activity.
