MYZONE is all about versatility. We want to help you meet your fitness goals and to give you the option of using other tools, in addition to MYZONE, to help you progress in your fitness journey. This is why we provide interoperability with devices such as the Apple Watch, Garmin, and 3rd party wearable apps like MapMyRun, Strava, Run Keeper, MyFitnessPal, and others.
For Apple Watch users, your active burn calories, weight, height, BMI, BMR, blood pressure, body fat and heart rate can all be shared with the Apple Health portal. You can also view your heart rate on many other popular fitness apps that accept the Bluetooth signal from your MZ-3. All of your heart rate data will still be stored until you sync your belt with the MYZONE app.
We want to give you the real-time effort readings you need so your journey toward increased fitness is tangible, understandable, and personal. Let’s take a quick look a few of these wearable apps to see if integrating them with MYZONE will help you take your fitness to the next level:
This popular running app tracks your runs (distance, pace, speed, elevation). The Find a route feature allows you to search for different routes in your area by distance and location. But it’s not just for runners! You can use the search feature to find paths that are great for biking and even for dog walking. And like MYZONE, MapMyRun is community-driven. So you can look to see what routes have been added to the app by others users, and you even have the option of submitting your own.
Strava, like MYZONE, takes a unique approach to their tracking app by focusing on competition. When you run or cycle using Strava, you’re competing against other app users who have ran or biked the same routes. If you’re fast enough, your name will appear at the top of a leaderboard. You can also use the app for more traditional tracking (distance, time, speed). Strava synced with MYZONE is a competitor’s dream!
MyFitnessPal is less about activity tracking and more about what foods you’re eating and your specific weight loss goals. Many say it is one of the best mobile calorie counters out there, so combining it’s food recording abilities with MYZONE’s effort-tracking accuracy makes for a dynamic duo!
What other apps do you use in addition to MYZONE that help you meet your fitness goals? Or have you found that MYZONE is your all-in-one app for the fitness data you need? We love to hear how you’re doing and how the MYZONE app (and other wearable apps!) are helping you take your health and fitness to the next level.
