The latest iOS version of the MapMyFitness suite of mobile applications now includes product integration with Under Armour’s Armour39® performance monitor. Armour39 allows all athletes to track heart rate, calories, real-time intensity, and WILLpower™- the first true measure that boils a workout down to a single score – and for the first time ever, is now integrated directly into the MapMyFitness mobile workout experience.
Through this integration, users can set and track WILLpower scores through the mobile coaching features. Measured on a scale from 0.0 – 10.0, now each workout will accurately display your intensity level through real-time heart rate data and calories burned. Audio features include voice feedback to ensure you’re staying on pace to meet workout goals.
So, what is WILLpower? WILLpower is based on an algorithm that combines how long you workout, activity type, gender and weight and key heart rate measures. A new way to train measured through a simple score rating.
