What separates skaters from runners en cyclists is the influence of the surface of the roads that you ride over. When the conditions of the road are bad (bumpy, old, damaged etc.) there’s not much fun in exercising.
Skate Navigator uses Google Maps combined with GPS-tracking, so all of the information considering your workout that other similar apps provide will be also available in Skate Navigator.
On top of that, SkateNavigator is the first app that offers the possiblity to add ratings to the roads that you used during your workout that will be shared with all the users of this app. As a result of this, an entire network of rated roads will develop that will make skating so much more fun and safe.
Skate Navigator provides two types of very useful information:
– speed (average speed, top speed, lowest speed)
– duration; distances
– % angle of inclination
– heartrate, calories
Each and every single road that you can skate upon can be rated by users. You can rate separate segments of roads by giving a rate from 1 to 5 satrs. A rating of 1 star represents the worst kind of surface to skate upon; a rating of 5 stars represents the best surface possible.
Once your activity is completed, the data is synced to www.skatenavigator.com. Here you can view a history of all of your tracked activities and all of the rated segments and routes worldwide or just in your current region. You can also share your progress with friends by posting your activities to Facebook and creating a profile page that allows people to view all of your public activities.
By combining sports and technology (internet, GPS smartphones) Skate Navigator is making sports in general and skating in particular even more fun. Shared activities, competitions and incentives within the community increase motivation and further assist the users in achieving their goals and enjoying skating even more!
