iWalk, the fully customizable pedometer system for the iPhone or iPod Touch. You can set it for whatever situation you prefer, walking, running, wearing it on your hip, or even holding it in your hand. If you want, craft what is best for you, or go with our walking based defaults.
Some of the information the iWalk can provide you with is:
-Time of session
-Bonus information on the configuration screen
-Caloric expenditure ranges
-Can change from US standard to Metric standard
-Can change stride from walking to running to sprinting
On top of necessary information (height, weight, age, gender) check out some of the other configurations the iWalk opens up to you.
-The Stride is the distance in feet from the heel of one foot to the heel of the other when a step is taken. This is calculated for you from your height with the assumption of a walking stride. You may need to double this number if running or sprinting.
-Sensitivity can range from 1.01 to 2.90 with a lower sensitivity allowing iWalk to count more steps with less movement. Lower this number if you keep your device in your pocket, or raise it if you strap it to your arm or hold it as you jog.
-Dynamic sensitivity is our algorithm that adjusts sensitivity to what you are doing. At the cost of losing the first few steps as the algorithm learns, it can figure out the situation. Move from running to walking without having to change or reset your configuration. The dynamic algorithm suits your needs.
No accelerometer based pedometer will give you a 100% accuracy, but we get you as close as possible.
To listen to your music while using iWalk, just start your music before running the applications.
iWalk does not run in the background, the application will have to be continuously running for it to work. There is a lock button so that you don’t accidently stop or reset the application while you have it in some place like your pocket.
