Some of you may recall a yellow pedometer that was released a few years ago and that was the rage. Yes, we're talking about the official Pikachu step counter and although it was far from being anything similar to Pokémon GO, it already urged kids and teenagers to get up from the sofa and start training their Pokémons by working out themselves. But nowadays, this kind of gadgets have become outdated as we can download similar tools to our phone, including more serious and boring versions that we can find in the official stores. And Pacer for iPhone is one of the options we can get hold of from the iTunes App Store.
Become more active, lose weight, reduce your blood pressure, and start living a healthier life.
How does it work?
The first thing to do is to create a profile. And you had better not lie. You'll have to introduce your age, your weight, your height, and your gender, as well as your main goal: lose weight, lose fat, get fitter, eat healthier... And that's it. Provided that you always carry around your iPhone or wear your Apple Watch, it will count the steps you take, whilst the app also indicates how many more to take to reach your goal and how much you've walked during the day.
But that's not all. You can choose to download videos of different workouts and do them yourself, or monitor your walks, running sessions or biking tours with its GPS functions.
A complete and accurate system to measure your physical activity (count steps, calories, and the amount of time you're active).
The tool comes along with a digital trainer that will send you messages, a history, and a calendar to keep track of your progress and the targets you meet. Furthermore, it incorporates its own social network where you can meet other fitness geeks like yourself and share your concerns and pictures of your protein shakes. Pacer: Pedometer & Walking App doesn't do any exercise for you but it encourages you to do so to become healthier. However, to be able to access the best options (such as the magic spell to lose weight 2.5 times faster) you'll have to pay a subscription.
