Track Your Gear Like a Pro

You may have heard we launched Gear Tracker with a while back. Well good news – this feature has now rolled out to our Android community and now more people than ever are keeping tabs on their shoes. Training season is among us, and one of the easiest ways to avoid injury from over worn shoes is to know exactly how many miles are on each pair.

That’s where we come in. With, we are making it simple to search, add, track and buy shoes directly from the MapMyFitness mobile apps. For more information, take a look at the video below. If you need help getting started, follow these steps:

  • Within the updated app, select Gear Tracker from the menu
  • Select ‘Add Gear’
  • Search for shoes by brand or model type
  • Select start date, set lifespan (default is 400 miles), and add previous miles if the shoes are not new; you can also nickname shoes from this screen
  • Select ‘Add Gear’
  • Confirm your gear is selected on the Record Workout screen, and start tracking
  • Share your gear on social media and spread the word
