What is your favorite simple track/map my walk app? Is there an Apple one that automatically does it?
So far I like the Under Armour one. I tried the WorkOutDoors app and it seems great but almost too convoluted with too many options.
when i first started to walk in earnest, i began to use a step counter called Activity Tracker.
it doesn't do a lot but it does a great job of graphically showing number of steps by day, week, month, and year.
it just re-arranges the data collected by the watch and apple's health app.
important for me is also it can graphically show flights data (3 m gain in elevation) as well.
but all this app does is really chart steps. and it does that well.
i have at least tried pretty much of all of the walking apps and didn't like they had way too many features that were of no interest to me, and constantly in my face to post results to leader boards, and to map my walks. i am very leery of giving mapped daily walk data to any 3rd party app for reasons of privacy. it seems to me to be very dangerous to do this. i especially didn't like Pacer (Pro) for this reason.
when i got my apple watch i slowly got into the 3 ring Activity app approach. and, began to use the great Workout App on the watch as well.
the work out app on the watch calculates splits for each Km walked. it also keeps continual track of heart rate, can notifiy you when you reach your peak heart rate, and it also gives a great heat map of your walk showing green and yellow/orange segments to indicate pace trend. best of all is that this map info stays on yr Watch/iPhone and doesn't need to go anywhere.
the Activity app does indicate daily steps. and the its weekly summary does indicate weekly steps.
the Health app on the iPhone gets better and better to indicate long term trend data as well. very useful.
but, the Workout app that you use to track your walk (even the Outdoor Walk workout details) does not indicate number of steps.
i think from an overall fitness perspective i agree with apple's Activity 3 ring approach and focusing on pace and distance rather than steps itself.
but, i just cant delete the Activity Tracker app because it does that function very well.
