Walking Odometer Pro is a GPS fitness app for walking and hiking designed for outdoor use. Take it for a walk or run and it will accurately record your route, distance traveled, energy expended in calories or kJ, elevation changes, and more.
Unlike a step pedometer, Walking Odometer Pro leverages the power of GPS, and by doing so, is able to provide more accurate measurements for distance walked and calories burned than can be achieved with a simple step counting pedometer.
For this application, a team of internal medicine M.D.'S and exercise physiology specialists helped us develop a calories burned algorithm that draws on population studies of human oxygen consumption, CO2 production and human bomb calorimetry at rest and during exercise, factoring for GPS location data.
Set long term or short term goals for yourself to motivate you to walk or run to a better fitness level. Choose a calorie goal, distance goal or decide how many pounds or kilograms of fat you would like to lose, then view your progress during and after your exercises.
The application has a powerful data manager that allows you to sort and view your accomplishments by day, month, week or year. Or, view speed, altitude and distance profiles for any given recording.
The app is easy to use. Simply press the start button, close the app and begin your activity.
The application's odometer is internally calibrated so there is no need for you to go through a lengthy trial-and-error calibration method.
If you need to interrupt your walk, you can pause an activity and resume it at a later point in time. Pauses and resumes are reflected on the trail map which will clearly show split distances and other stats.
There is a one-of-a-kind odometer on the first screen that shows your distance. The meter was modeled after the rolling drum odometers seen in old cars and functions the same way -- the display actually rolls in real time as you walk / run.

* Walking Odometer Pro is a free app with no hidden fees and no subscriptions. The free version limits the number of walks that can be stored at a time to 15 with the ability to replace and delete saved walks, so there is virtually no limit on the number of walks you can record.
