New Apps, Digital Fitness Devices Keep Track Of Your Workout

This free iPhone app from Puma helps track your workout, crunching the data into an overall score. The app also helps you figure out conditions that affect your workout, and the scoring system can be motivating.

I liked hearing my time shouted out by the female British voice every kilometer and found the overall score function quite motivational. The Pumatrac also can help you figure out how weather conditions, music and days of the week affect your workout. Dislikes: An irritating glitch occurred three times during my 45-minute run: The data collection function paused, even though I didn’t stop running. But heck, it’s free. Price: Free.
