Runtastic update

So, I did finally get Runtastic up and running on my BlackBerry and it’s pretty cool – but it is not nearly as good as my Garmin Forerunner. I guess there was a part of me that didn’t quite believe that a free app could be as good as the watch, but I was a little nervous about it. It did a great job on the map part, didn’t have any trouble showing me where I was running, but the GPS wasn’t perfect because at one point it told me that I was going 8.7 miles an hour (increasing the distance by a half mile or so). I mean, I was flattered and all, but even I know that I can’t do better than 7 mph for more than a minute or so. Ah well, I still have it in case I go somewhere and don’t have the Forerunner or the battery dies.


Watch for running in Georgia updates next week!

    Interesting. I hadn’t heard of this. Too bad it doesn’t really work but I am thankful that you gave me the review so I didn’t have to get all excited and then get let down.


  2. It did pretty well except for that part where it said I was going fast fast fast… and it is free… 🙂
