Do fitness with your smartphone
Get involved in a completely unique experience while running indoor. Treadmill Arcade Running is both video game and running app. Take your ANT+ or bluetooth foot pod, or your Xiaomi Smartband or Garmin watch with you, connect it to your Android smartphone and use any treadmill you want at home or in your fitness center.
Many of you propably remember what is foot pod: a small, light device that you can attach on your shoelaces. It was here before smart watches, and it is very useful for training (and even for a race!). Foot pod measures not only distance and speed, but also running cadence. If you run indoor, GPS tracking will not be available and using a foot pod will be the best solution to follow your activity. For these reasons, we chose the foot pod technology to be used in our app. Just attach it to your shoes, select speed on the treadmill and start running (don't forget to start the application!)
Like ANT+ footpods, any bluetooth footpod are now compatible with Treadmill Arcade Running in our new version. Milestone footpods are for example compatible. This is the footpod we choose to test Treadmill Arcade Running with ! Just one important thing : you have to write them an email to ask for the lastest beta firmware which allows realtime workout following.
There are also other options if you have iPhone and want to use it as a footpod : dowload "Treadmill Smart Speed" on the Apple Store.
Xiaomi Smartbands are compatible with Treadmill Arcade Running. Use your band in order to transmit running speed on a treadmill to your phone and enjoy playing video game.
Use your Garmin watch as a gamepad to play Arcade Running on your Android phone or tablet and enjoy video game while running on a treadmill.
Ride indoor with any Bluetooth Low Energy home trainer. Virtual speed is computed automatically from cycling power.
Because you can take your phone and your sensor with you to the place you want : at home or in any fitness center!
Furthermore, if you are used to run with a heart strape, you can connect any ANT+ comptatible heart strap and follow your heart rate directly in the app.
When you run, the avatar moves forward in the game. If you run faster, it accelerates like in a virtual reality application...
But there is an extra dimension which will really improve your running experience : while doing your workout, you will be able to do some extra actions exactly like in a 2D platform game : jump, attack or change direction.
To do these actions, just tap on your screen, respectively on the right, in the middle or on the left.
Workout file is automatically created on your phone and sent at your mail address or uploaded directly on Strava.
In order to add some fun, to increase you motivation and to give a social dimension to your experience, your game progression is saved automatically in the cloud and you will be able to compare your results with other athletes all over the world through leaderboards.
