App Description

Featured by Apple as a Health & Fitness "Best New App" and "Apps for Runners"

Vima is a GPS based tracking app for people who want to keep track of their running fitness goals. It is an app aimed at simplicity that allows runners to keep track of their runs easily without a lot of unnecessary stuff getting in the way.

Vima tracks speed, distance, altitude, and time. It also gives you a map showing where you have been while you are saving a run.

See calories burned. Set your weight in settings and get your calories burned in real time and on the history page after your run.

Easily start, pause, resume, and save a run without ever getting your phone out of your pocket. Check your distance, speed, time, and altitude from your Apple Watch in realtime.

When viewing saved runs your route shows up on the map color coded by speed. It shows where you went the fastest (green) and where you were slowest (red).

Don't want to look at the screen every few minutes? You can have the app tell you updates on your progress in set distance and/or time intervals.

Added splits to the history review page. Choose from 9 different distances and see how each section of your workout went.

Track the distance on your running shoes so you know when it's time to replace them before they start causing problems

Pause the workout to catch your breath or chat with a friend and then resume when you get back to it.

Share your workout with your friends on Facebook or Twitter (or email) with our easy to use integration.

Buying the premium features for any of Vima Run, Vima Bike, and Vima Walk now upgrades all of them. Track all of your fitness activities for 1 price.

The app supports both standard and metric units.

Apple Health permissions allow us to enhance your data as well as saving your workout information to Apple Health.
