With Thanksgiving and other major holidays right around the corner, Trimble and AT&T are providing a way for outdoor enthusiasts to get on track to a healthier lifestyle. Using Trimble’s AllSport GPS application, AT&T wireless users can track their exercise activity on select GPS-enabled devices.
For outdoor workouts such as running, walking, biking and snowboarding, the application monitors time, speed, calories burned and distance traveled. Users can store workouts to monitor progress, view weekly activity logs, map their favorite routes and share activities with friends.
Using Trimble’s Website, subscribers also can browse an online library of trips, upload and recommend routes and customize trips taken by others, download maps in topographic, street and aerial views to their wireless devices and send guided workouts to their phones and “race” against the person who originally uploaded the workout.
AllSport GPS is available on select GPS-enabled AT&T mobile phones for a $5.99 monthly subscription. It can be purchased from the AT&T MEdia Mall, which is accessible from AT&T handsets and online at http://www.att.com/mediamall. There also is a 7-day free trial.
