There’s been a lot of focus on on fitness in the mobile world lately, with many companies releasing fitness tracking hardware to strap onto your wrist. HTC did just that lately with its Grip wearable, and now HTC is putting even more effort into the fitness market with a new app.
Fun Fit is a new app from HTC that’ll connect you with your Facebook friends and let you select a “cute avatar” and compete with activities. The app will count your steps once you log into Strolling mode, and it’ll continue to count your steps until you log out. It’ll also measure your distance, calories burned, and time.
In addition to tracking your activities, Fun Fit will give you daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly charts, which ought to satisfy all of your record-keeping needs. You can also set daily goals to keep track of.
There’s no shortage of fitness tracking apps on Android, but HTC’s Fun Fit app is placing a heavy focus on competing with your friends. The whole Facebook part of the app may turn off some users, but if you don’t mind connecting your Facebook, the app could be an easy way to track your daily activities and get a little more motivation from seeing your friends’ activities too.
