Runtastic GPS Coach is a workout tracker which uses geolocation and calories counter
This is the paid version (€4.99) with extra features like social sharing, more sports in the list, extra statistics, cheering during the activity with friends and many other extra features.
Runtastic is a professional coach tool for those who want to track their workout. It allows you to set routes, track the distance and the time it took to you, as well as the heart rate (if you're logged in and if you have the specific item for it: Wearlink+Bluetooth). It uses GPS to track your route in the map. In this regard, it should be said that it's quite accurate, more than other we've tried (it's full integrated with Google Maps).
What's more, you can add sessions manually: that's it, set your workout to your liking. You can set what kind of activity, distance (km), duration, time and calories goal. Likewise, you can let the app ask you what kind of sport you're going to practice every time you start a new activity: jogging, biking, nordic walking, skating, snowboarding...
It keeps a history of your workouts in order to monitor your progresses.
When you have finished your session you can save it and, after that set the bpm average, notes, what was your feeling, what surface you were practising it through, how was the weather and temperature. All this stuff will help you to know if you're progressing given the same conditions.
Runtastic GPS Coach has been developed by runtastic, an emerging developer who has just launched this app on the market with remarkably success though.
If you're trying to get fit, this could be a reasonably option to motivate yourself. Recommendable.
Runtastic PRO uses GPS to map & track sports and fitness activities, such as: running, jogging, biking & walking. The Runtastic PRO app tracks cardio workout progress (time, distance, elevation, calories & more) to help you reach training goals.

WHO’S TALKING ABOUT RUNTASTIC?
MASHABLE: “... people are choosing instead to download Runtastic, since the company just announced it's hit 25 million mobile users. That's as much as Nike+ (11 million as of February) and runner favorite RunKeeper (14 million) combined.”
TECHCRUNCH: “Thanks to MapMyFitness, RunKeeper, Nike and many more, apps that keep track of your exercise and push you to drop those extra pounds are by no means novel. Nonetheless, bootstrapped European startup Runtastic is still managing to carve out a name for itself in a crowded space by offering a simple user experience, while still offering the deeper functionality of higher-end products.”
NY TIMES: “I went ahead and downloaded it even though I was skeptical that it would go beyond the familiar territory of similar apps like Endomondo and RunKeeper. Like those two, Runtastic primarily maps and records your route. But Runtastic’s interface has some qualities the others don’t. Runtastic.com is well designed, too.”

My only problem is that my Pebble stops displaying Runtastic information after a few minutes then totally disappears from the Pebble's menu. Prob Pebble's fault.
I love this app. Its a great motivator and gives accurate distance, calories burn and many other useful info. I love the map tracker and its legend and would highly recommend. I love how it connects all your Runtastic apps with MyFitnessPal and automatica
My favourite of several applications for tracking when on the move. Syncs up beautifully with my fitness pal too which is a huge plus for me
The product is slated to be able to connect to blue tooth HRM. I was thinking cool. I know that my HRM works with a competitors app it should work with this one as well. WRONG. I guess the Samsung Note 2 running android 4.2 doesnt cut it. $5 down the d
Love this app. The only problem is that I cannot stop and reset a session. And that is a big problem sometimes. Please install a reset option.
Love withings and my fitness pal sync. Push apps and Sit apps .
