An updated review of Argus. I continue to test iPhone applications that help you measure and track your physical activity. There are a number of applications you can use – some more robust and useful then others. I have a number of them reviewed at least to some extent in the summary round up found here. Over the last 1 year! I have been using two of them specifically – ARGUS (I am using the free version of the application) and Runtastic Mountain Bike Pro (I paid for this one)
The good news is that these two applications – both of which I find useful and good to use – are measuring the bike riding activities I do in a relatively similar way! This is good. I have tried both the road bike and mountain bike functions. And surprisingly – the two applications do well as they measured close enough the distance, speed, and calories for the rides
I like the Argus application – it is well done with a good linkage between keeping track of your various forms of exercise and ability to see it all on one screen. One issue I see – the notion of entering the food you consume is very tedious – and I do not understand what is up with the option to take a photo of your food…. WHY? So if Argus can fix that – I will like this up even more 🙂
Side note: a link to some good bike trail photos…Enjoy!
