1. Endomondo

Easily one of the top dogs in the massively growing running app space and one of the most fully featured. Track any outdoor sport, from running and cycling, to just plain old walking and keep an eye on duration, distance and speed. The app can also tell you how many calories you’ve worked off – great those watching what they eat.

Endomondo can be expanded, by adding in an external heart-rate monitor. ANT+ monitors work – check our best heart rate monitors to buy feature for some of the top ones.

If you’re still looking for more, you can take out a yearly subscription to Endomondo Premium and for £13.99 a year you’ll get weather updates on your routes, heart rate zones and set personal goals.
