While most apps are more effective outside, there are a few that are best used inside.
Kinomap, for instance, works with all hometrainers who have Bluetooth. It essentially turns a stationary bike, treadmill or rowing machine into a more enjoyable fitness device. Like the outdoor apps, it motivates people to stay active, only inside their homes or gym.
There are four main ways that the device makes fitness sport more playful and less monotonous. First, the Kinomap offers its users a diversity of courses: from the French Alps to the Great Wall of China. Secondly, the device is very interactive with its user, encouraging them to reach their fitness goals. Thirdly, the app makes people feel like they are immersed in a different place. Lastly, the app has a multiplayer function that allows friends to compete against each other.
