REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest update for popular fitness app Pacer Pedometer is now available on the App Store. The update brings three brand-new features designed to make getting the recommended amount of daily activity more fun and more convenient.
Unique Team-based Challenges Inspire Friendly Competition
With the latest update, Pacer has added a new team-based component to its popular online step challenges. Teams can compete on Pacer's global leaderboard for badges and bragging rights."We wanted to find a way to further increase motivation and engagement by letting users compete toward a common goal together. Many users are already familiar with Pacer's group functionality, so this was a natural addition to the app," explained co-founder Mike Caldwell. "As far as I know, Pacer is the only step-tracking app to provide this kind of functionality."
New Workouts with Audio and Video Guidance
Pacer's new "Burn Fat At Home" workout program offers Premium users video tutorials and detailed audio guidance to help get the most possible out of every workout. All workouts are kept at under 12 minutes and require no special equipment, so users can workout literally any time and anywhere with just their phone. Pacer also plans to continue adding new exercise programs with each release.
Indoor/Treadmill Mode Makes Every Step Count
Bad weather no longer needs to be a stumbling block for users looking to get in a good walk or run. Pacer users can now record treadmill sessions the same way they currently record outdoor sessions. From the home screen of the app, just swipe right, then choose indoor mode and tap start. Pacer will make sure every step, every mile and every calorie burned gets recorded.
Pacer Pedometer is the world's most downloaded daily activity tracking app for iOS and Android. Unlike other apps that require pairing with a wearable device, Pacer runs directly on any smart phone with no need for expensive hardware or extra hassle. It currently has a 5-star rating on the iOS App Store and a 4.5-star rating on the Google Play Store.
