    An application like this in the hands of a professional trainer I suppose it will be very useful. For amateur personal use I see little sense, one of the purposes that I always saw when practicing sport was to know oneself, our limits, it is still my thing, but…. Isn't such an application distracting that end? I see him as the one who goes on vacation and is more concerned with taking photos than enjoying the moment.

      Greetings, Gregorio. Thank you for your comment and yes, you are right. That is, it is ideal for people with their own or professional sports regimes. Because, if it is going to be used for mere curiosity or fun, then time and enjoyment of the sport are wasted in annotations, graphs and numbers that we will not really use to their maximum potential.
