Most fitness trackers have an app which allows you to see all your data and connect with friends; however, this isn’t ideal if your friends all have different brands of trackers! Apps like Stridekick and MyFitnessPal allow you to sync tracker data with friends, regardless of what tracker they have, so you can get more people to join the challenge. Most apps integrate with social media, so it’s as easy as simply adding a friend.
If you’re really up for a challenge, why not step the competition up a little – not just against friends, but against a whole global community?! These apps are also great for maintaining motivation by offering thousands of fitness goal ideas, and global leaderboards to see how you stack up against people from all over the world. Communities also allow users to suggest new exercise routes, to help you discover your local area while getting fitter!
