Wearable technology is all the rage these days, from the UP band, to the Fitbit, to the Nike+ FuelBand. Furthermore, there’s the Pebble watch, Apple is rumored to release the “iWatch,” Samsung IS releasing a smartwatch (so they say), and Google is rumored to be working on a watch as well. But all these gadgets will no doubt set you back a good few bucks. Enter “Moves.”
Moves is a free iPhone app that allows you to track your walks, your runs, your bike rides and any mode of transportation you may take. The algorithms aren’t perfect – sometimes it will mistake your car or bus ride for cycling – but the app very easily allows you to make corrections to any errors. You can then view a summary of your daily activity in a timeline.
With Foursquare integration, you can also make note of all the locations you stopped at throughout the day, and if you’ve been to that location before, the app automatically recognizes and labels your the location in your timeline.
Considering your phone is appended to your body for most of the day, if not the entire day, this app easily transforms it into an activity tracking device at zero cost.
